In the LXWR this week we have LynuxWorks reverting to its original LynxOS name, just what is a good terminal emulator for Linux, Why the porting method doesn't matter, Glyn Moody calls out Makerbot and the five most popular end-user Linux distributions. Enjoy!
LynuxWorks, which changed its name and launched BlueCat Linux alongside its older LynxOS RTOS in 2000, has renamed itself to “Lynx Software Technologies.” In a news announcement, Lynx CEO Gurjot Singh said the company’s “new name reflects broad market adoption of LynxOS and LynxSecure … in connected embedded systems.”
Android developers can now benefit from ITTIA DB SQL’s bi-directional data synchronization in applications that need to maintain connection with back-end enterprise databases.
In this previous part of this article we learned about types of shells . In most of the Linux distributions , bash shell is the default shell. So we are going to discuss the working of bash shell in this article . Fasten your seat belts and get ready for the bash ride
Normally we think that when we type a command, shell looks for the command in all the directories defined in the PATH environment variable. But in real it goes through the following sequence to reach the above step.
Linux is generally considered as a geek’s operating system and I am completely agree with it. Linux is not only limited to work only. You can also enjoy a lot while working on it. There are many crazy commands which will bring a big smile on your face. Below we are going to discuss few out of them.
1. Oneko : This utility remembers me of the cat mouse game. Cat chases the mouse pointer regardless of its position. You have to download it from the repository by typing “sudo apt-get install oneko” (without quotes) in ubuntu .Then just launch it by typing oneko . You will see a
In my last article, ArchBang: A small review I was a bit unfair to the distro. I did not want to see these distros (ArchBang and Arch Linux) for what they really are and I consider that to be very wrong. Therefore, I bring you a few thoughts on Arch Linux after playing around with it for about 2-3 days.

GNU/Linux -- Like No Other Hotrod, Ever
While others appear to be going backwards, Linux just keeps racing ahead.
'Linux supports more devices, "out of the box", than any other operating system ever has.'
"Yes, that's right, we support more things than anyone else. And more than anyone else ever has in the past. Linux has a very long list of things that we have supported before anyone else ever did."
-- Greg Kroah-Hartman, OLS 2006 Keynote
The National Security Agency and the Air Force Research Laboratory are working in a joint initiative with software vendors, defense contractors and academia to develop products based on a highly secure information architecture known as Multiple Independent Levels of Security.
