  • Research: NTFS is still the most common in data recovery incidents

    NTFS is still the most common in data recovery incidents, based on ReclaiMe Data Recovery research

    ReclaiMe Data Recovery, one of the leading data recovery software vendors, today declared the results of the internal research aimed at determining most commonly recovered file systems. The research found that NTFS still wins with more than 60% of all the incidents while the recently released ReFS is not yet popular, it takes last place with 1%. The research was conducted during 2013 and covered about 30,000 recovery incidents.

  • Mac Security: The Rise of the Botnets

    New York Times: "Malicious programs for Macs are rare and, even when they do show up, rather primitive. Well, they just became a little less rare and a bit more sophisticated." Complete Story

  • Windows 7, a desktop repeat?

    Not long ago I wrote that KDE 4 might produce enough changes to its look and feel to help Linux become more Mac-like.  At the time, Windows Vista seemed to be trying to move in the same direction.  Interestingly, someone has noted that Windows 7 now appears to be moving towards Linux's direction with the Windows desktop looking more like KDE 3.5. The review features screenshots and I must say, even though it has not convinced me, Windows 7 is a step forward from Vista, at…

  • Apple recommends anti-virus software for the Mac

    Ironic how the world can change so quickly.  Yesterday, the CIO of my organization began enforcing the use of anti-virus software on all of our Linux clients and servers.  Today, I read that Apple is telling its Mac users to purchase anti-virus software.  Something nasty is brewing out there. Apple encourages the widespread use of multiple antivirus utilities so that virus programmers have more than one application to circumvent, thus making the whole virus writing process more…

  • Installing Joomla! on your Mac

    JoeJoomla: "The simplest way to develop a Joomla! site on your local Mac OS X computer is by using MAMP. MAMP is short for Macintosh, Apache, MySQL, PHP. MAMP works just like an application. It is released under the GNU General Public License. You can download MAMP from Living-e AG. The download page can be found HERE. Current MAMP versions require Mac OS X 10.4.x. If you're running Mac OS X 10.3.x you can download an earlier version of MAMP 1.4.1 (universal binary), for Intel and PowerPC."…

  • Psystar and Open Mac

    OpenSourceCommunity: As I look at the Psystar Web site, built using Joomla! and VirtueMart, both free, as in liberty solutions, I can't help but wonder if we might be seeing these little extra pushes right now. Psystar offers a product called "Open Mac." Well, today Psystar wisely renamed the product Open Computer. Complete Story

  • Walt Mossberg on the Asus Eee PC

    In Thursday morning's Wall Street Journal, Walt Mossberg did a review of the Asus Eee PC. The article, Asus Offers Travelers Small, Mobile Eee PC, but It’s Too Cramped, can be found in his column archive (a Wordpress site). I had been waiting for someone of his stature do a review on this product, but I was a little disappointed to see yet another review of a non-Apple device (this one is Linux based) be so negative.

  • The Mac and Windows Alternative: My Linux Laptop

    few weeks ago, I seriously thought about buying either Apple's latest MacBook or a Windows laptop where I could dual boot between the laptops native operating systems and Linux. In the end, I chose to install Linux on a three year old laptop. This old laptop isn't just any laptop but one of the first sub-$1000 laptops that hit the United States market. The laptop is the Averatec 3220 and over time I've found it just too sluggish for running Windows XP.

  • KDE 4.0 on my next laptop?

    The latest review I've read on the KDE desktop is from Ars Technica, A first look at KDE 4.0 release candidate 2. While the author notes that a lot of improvements still need to be made to KDE 4.0, overall it should be an impressive desktop. I'm contemplating that my next laptop will be fully Linux and hoping KDE 4.0 will bring enough Wow to impress others on why I didn't choose to go the Windows or Mac route. Last summer, I reluctantly chose Windows Vista for my home desktop…

  • Expected new look for Firefox 3 getting noticed

    As we mentioned more than a month ago, Firefox 3 is expected to sport a new look. Some of the more popular online magazines are starting to take notice and helping to fan some excitement on the new look. On a blog at Wired a Firefox 3 related post can be found, Catch a Glimpse of Firefox 3's Sleek, Sexy New Digs. Some of the changes planned for the final release of Firefox 3 include a complete visual makeover with platform-specific skins designed to integrate the look of Firefox into…
