Linux C++ desarrollo IDE

From the mas-facil-programar-en-linux dept. (3813) (0) by Luis

Bajo el patrocinio de los grandes de la IBM y Red Hat nos llega el projecto Eclipse. Este projecto esta centrado en producir las herramientas para Linux para ayudar al rápido desarrollo de una serie de aplicaciones. Ellos anunciaron últimamente, la salida de un IDE para C/C++. Este se une a uno que habian anunciado anteriormente para Java One. Era justo que saliera algo así en el que uno pueda desarrollar una aplicación completa sin tener que usar una combinacion alta de otras herramientas, generalmente un editador de palabras, un compilador, un debugger, mas muchas otras mas...
Estos son emasiados cambios de una aplicación a otra, cuando la mayoria de ingenieros estan acostumbrados a usar un solo programa sólido bajo otras plataformas, como es el caso de Borland C++ Builder ® IDE para Windows ®. Aunque ya Borland habia anunciado Kylix, que es un producto de Linux que hace lo que Borland C++ Builder ® hace para Windows ® -- que por supuesto no es gratuito. Otra alternativa muy buena de Eclipse es Anjuta, que es también Open Source y gratuito, pero no cuenta con el respaldo de compañias tan importantes como lo son IBM y RedHat.

¡Mandrake 8.2 listo!

From the linux-esta-super-caliente-estos-dias dept. (3758) (0) by Luis

Para quienes estaban esperando, su tiempo llegó. Mandrake 8.2 esta listo para ser telecargado (FTP iso). Las nuevas opciones que trae estan detalladas aquí (en Ingles, la página española todavía no tiene las últimas noticias). Entre las más importantes:Instalación más simpleKernel 2.4.18Soporte para Archivos encrypted (disco duro completo)DiskDrake mucho mejor que antesNueva instalacion mínima solo toma 65MBSoporte completo para el símbolo del EuroEtc...

Mandrake continúa siendo una de las mejores distribuciones de Linux que hay hoy día. Y aunque es completamente gratuita, después de evaluar la instalación del ISO uno siente ese deseo fuerte de darle honor a quien honor merece y al menos comprar el CD de la caja mas barato (alrededor de .99 US Dollars). La verdad es que sí vale la pena. Luego uno se olvida que Windows o Macintoshes (version 9 y menor) existieron...

NOTA: La version de PPC es la misma (el mismo número) que la de x86. Un buen adelanto para aquellos que tenemos Macintoshes viejas tiradas que pueden servir de un buen ¡Beowulf cluster!

Darwin Streaming Server

From the apple-opensource-support dept. (4349) (0) by Luis

According to this Network Computing well written article, it seems that Apple's Open Source Streaming Server blew the competition away this time! Network Computing's article details and rates the different streaming servers from companies such as Real Media, Microsoft, and Apple, in terms of price (TCO), quality and performance.
Apple's Streaming Server "edged out" Real Media Server (Apple .gif | Real Media .gif) and outperform Windows Media Server by far (No Graph).
How can you get more information on Apple's free Streaming Server:

Before doing anything, read the APSL and the FAQ.
Apple's Open Source Streaming Server allows streaming of MPG-4 (ISO compliant), MP3 (Icecast-compatible protocols), and QuickTime among others. It runs on Apple's free Darwin OS, and it's sibling MacOS X, and binaries for RedHat, Solaris, WinNT/2000 also exists (acceptance of APSL needed).

Apple Computer gets grammy!

From the pc-companies-can-get-into-funky-business dept. (4116) (0) by Luis

A never before heard grammy was awarded to Apple ®: a technical GRAMMY award.
"Apple was honored by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences with a Technical GRAMMY Award for its outstanding technical contributions to the music industry and recording field. This is the first Technical GRAMMY ever awarded to a PC company."
We all know the impact that Macintoshes have had in every aspect of computing, from the introduction of the mouse, until today's 'digital hub' where all devices plug right into your box with no problem and you can sync+rip+encode+save and keep going without having to worry about crazy drivers not being there, or any of the other million quirks that only us who deal with computers daily can actually solve... Too frustrating for novice computer users. However, Apple computers are not just for novices, but for serious professionals as well, as seen by all those who use their Mac to make a living (not just for playing Unreal Tournament as we tend to do when we feel bored ;-) )

Remember OFS?

From the me-either-:-) dept. (3524) (0) by Luis

If you replied 'no' to this question don't worry, you are not the only one who don't remember that Microsoft tried to deliver a technology that would allow files and text to be stored in a way that they could be indexed, searched, and organized easier, faster and more efficiently... Too ambitious? Maybe, for 1990s, but nowadays with the amount of computing power that we have, and with the speed at which computer science has grown since then, it might be plausible. This interesting article talks about Microsoft's new plans to use technology from its SQL server for it's new upcoming Windows operating system (code-named: Longhorn).
Usually we are skeptic about any company trying to solve such complex problems as data storage is, with embellished, 'corporate-bable' language and no actions. Let's hope that this is not just talk and this actually gets delivered with the OS. This will help the industry as a whole, and make the competition 'smarter' about choosing the right road map.
And, as we all know, this will give Microsoft yet another way to abuse it's proven monopoly against each and every one of those who attempt to create/sell/develop something that it's similar in functionality.
