BozemanLUG Video Profiles - NOT

| |

The meeting went well last night but as expected, no one wanted to do any member profile videos... but I did shoot the following video. You should be able to root through our member list and the pictures that are posted and identify most everyone. If you want the high quality Ogg Theora video, right-click and "Save Link As..." the following: bozemanlug-20081204.ogv

Screencast: vzpkg2 & pkg-cacher

| | |

Robert Nelson released an updated version of vzpkg2, pkg-cacher as well as OS Template Metadata packages for Fedora, CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. In all there are 48 different OS Templates that can easily be made using this software and I'm wanting to get more people in the community interested so I made a screencast.

If you want the full-quality version, right-click on the following URL and save as. It is an Ogg Theora video and recorded with gtk-recordMyDesktop:

vzpkg2-screencast.ogv (69MB) (Right-click, Save Link As...)

I think this video speaks for itself.

The Linux Kernel Development Model

| |

Here's a video presentation by Greg Kroah Hartman on the development model of the Linux kernel. There are some interesting stats to be found.


Kernel Walkthrough

|

This video comes from the Silicon Valley Linux Users Group and is dated Nov. 7, 2007. Pretty darn interesting for us non-programmer types who want a better idea of the structure of the Linux kernel.


Triumph of the Nerds

If you haven't seen the Triumph of the Nerds series from PBS' Robert X. Cringely, check it out! It was made in 1996... but it is still fascinating for anyone who either lived through it or is interested in computer history.


Part 1

Part 2 and 3 are in the full article.

The Importance of FOSS and Open Standards

|

What to know why FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) and open standards are important? South African Minister of Public Service and Administration Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi does a wonderful job explaining in her opening remarks for the Idlelo African Conference on FOSS and Digital Commons. A text version of her speech is also available.

Let's hope that more politicians and decision makers around the globe become as informed as those in South Africa.

Indamixx, Mobile Linux DJ?

|

Trinity Audio Group seems to have a really neat product on their hands called Indamixx. The hardware appears to be built by Samsung. Indamixx is a fairly small, mobile device that runs Linux and includes a nice suite of free audio programs for mobile live audio streaming.


Dell Promotes Linux on the Desktop

|

Want to know why Dell is offering Linux on desktops and laptops for home and small business? They've made a video.

I like how they say that Linux is easier to use in some cases than MacOS and Windows... and in some cases not. They don't do too bad of a job.

Just in case you were wondering

I think Lawrence Lessing does a great job with his explanation of why he is for Senator Obama... so much so, I'm sharing it.
