Yea, most of it's great but there's also a lot of work that goes into making it great. I examine all the good bad and ugly of technology.

Ubuntu is using Yahoo! now!

Posted 02-15-2010 at 10:05 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

Ubuntu is switching the default search from Google to Yahoo!

Those of you testing out the development version of Ubuntu Lucid should notice a change in Firefox very soon. The default search provider for new installations of Ubuntu Lucid and upgrades will be Yahoo! and not Google. Canonical have struck a revenue sharing deal with Yahoo! which generates income for the company. This money should help pay the wages of Ubuntu Developers employed by Canonical.

There appears...

Redhat video training

Posted 12-08-2009 at 09:59 PM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)
Updated 12-08-2009 at 10:02 PM by jaymarting (Make pretty)

Background
I've been in IT for over 4 years now and playing around with linux just over two of those. Ive recently been getting a little more serious about my training as I reported in my entry about my Preplogic training purchase. And while I want to claim that I fight the good fight the reality is that my tiny company is still primarily windows based despite efforts to bring them over to linux.

Issue
It's because of this that I wasn't concerned that my PrepLogic training...

Linux in a Nutshell review

Posted 12-02-2009 at 08:46 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

Users of free Unixes won't agree with the title of Linux in a Nutshell. The fact is much of the book is actually focused on GNU or BSD utilities and not specifically Linux. The book begins with just over 100 pages of general user commands. Next you get info on bash and csh/tcsh, on emacs and vi/ex, on sed and gawk, and on gcc, gdb, and the like. A perl quick reference is followed by an overview of system administration commands and a final chapter on ways of booting Linux. Here's the odd part, it's...

Linux is a lost cause!

Posted 11-14-2009 at 06:40 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

This is the quote I was told earlier this week by a colleague. "Linux is a lost cause."

HAS LINUX LIVED UP TO ITS PROMISE?

I don't for a second agree that Linux is truly lost but I do certainly agree with my friend and colleague that the promise Linux fortune tellers made has not come to pass. As we close in on 2010, I harken back 10 years to promises of a nearly dead Microsoft and a world run almost entirely by Linux. Good, bad or otherwise that just has...

Microsoft Windows 7. My love of IT is back

Posted 11-03-2009 at 08:39 PM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

I remember when Windows Vista was released. There was so much hope and promise. The cool thing then was the whole see through interface. You know the one you had to pay extra for and buy a new graphics card just to support. The cost in time, energy and money was substantial but I, like so many others, shelled out the fare and jumped on board the Vista train. And oh did that ever suck.

I remember talking with different friends in the business about rolling out vista then about rolling...
