On Nuxified.org we provide resources on key open source technologies in belief that open source plays a crucial part in empowering individuals, improving society, and creating a better future.

Unfortunately, Ubuntu is becoming more and more of a disappointment lately. First they start shipping non-free software by default, then the edgy upgrade turns into a disaster and now I read about plans for including more non-free software and a 3D desktop by default in feisty (the next Ubuntu after edgy). To be honest, ever since I've seen the Feisty Fawn announcement I've been wondering what does the focus on "multimedia enablement and desktop effects" imply, the basic suspicion being will it include more non-free software by default?


I have the great pleasure to announce that the Spanish translation of GetGNULinux.org is released.
I wish to especially thank Gustavo, nwrman and Kuan (aka Miguel) for the wonderful work they have done.


Introduction

This tutorial is intended for people with at least basic Unix knowledge, such as mounting filesystems and copying files.

OpenSSH, an OpenBSD project, is an incredibly secure implementation of the SSH protocol, a way of logging into a remote machine. For users of outdated protocols such as RSH, rlogin, and Telnet, it's an updated, secure replacement. For those who have never used anything like it, SSH can become a very valuable tool.


BLAG - An Easy Way to Freedom?

Introduction

BLAG Linux with GNU is a small one CD distribution of the GNU/Linux operating system based upon Fedora Core. The version I'm taking a look at here, BLAG-500000, is based upon Fedora Core 5, with a bunch of packages added from third party sources.

BLAG aims to create a one CD distribution with everything people need for the desktop environment. It also aims to be a 100% Free Software distribution and has been recognized by as doing this on the GNU website, along with only six other distributions of GNU/Linux (http://www.gnu.org/links/links.html#FreeGNULinuxDistributions).

So I thought I'd see if this distribution has what it takes to bring freedom to the desktop, without being a pain to install and use.


At this point there are really only three major contenders on the desktop market; Windows, GNU/Linux and Mac OS X.
