The U.S. government's Department of Homeland Security plans to spend $1.24 million over three years to fund an ambitious software auditing project aimed at beefing up the security and reliability of several widely deployed open-source products.
The grant, called the "Vulnerability Discovery and Remediation Open Source Hardening Project," is part of a broad federal initiative to perform daily security audits of approximately 40 open-source software packages, including Linux, Apache, MySQL and Sendmail.

The plan is to use source

Don't write off the Unix server market just yet.
Sales for servers running the decades-old Unix operating system aren't growing as quickly as those that run on Microsoft's Windows and the open-source Linux. But recent maneuvers by large server vendors show that Unix is still a big business -- and showing new signs of life.

The $16 billion-a-year market, which comprises everything from workstations to high-end servers, has long been a three-way race between Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard and IBM.

A U.S. government study that reports there were three times more software vulnerabilities in the Linux/ Unix platform than in the Windows platform during 2005 not only is drawing criticism from the open-source community but also has prompted questions from security authorities.
Cyber Security Bulletin 2005, published last week by the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), indicates that, out of 5,198 reported flaws, 812 were Windows vulnerabilities, 2,328 were Linux/Unix flaws, and 2,058 were multiple system vulnerabilities. Read More...

The first draft of GNU General Public License Version 3 will be unveiled next week at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass., but that milestone is likely to be more of a beginning than an ending.
The release of the draft will kick off months of debate over the content and exact wording of the license that will govern much open-source software for the foreseeable future.

This is the first time in 15 years that the GPL,

A small but growing percentage of computer users today reap the benefits that Linux offers: cost savings, improved security, and more flexible, customized working environments.
Linux has long included strong support for PostScript-based printers (which includes most laser models), because PostScript is the default printing subsystem on UNIX, the operating system from which Linux is derived. But while most PostScript printers are generally supported under Linux, some advanced features can sometimes be missing because the manufacturers don't always make specific drivers

The top tech ideas of 2005 covered a wide terrain. They shared two important traits, both of them fitting in this cautious, post-bubble market.
Each idea gave more power to the user, and so carried on technology's classic democratizing effect.

And each of them extended an old idea, improved and evolved, rather than a radical new concept.

In no particular order, the big tech ideas that gained steam or entered the wider public domain included:

With a fast-growing presence in everything from servers to cell phones, the Linux operating system appears ready for prime time. But is it ready for real time?
MontaVista Software thinks so. The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company is adding real-time features to its version of the popular software, making it speedier and more rugged. The idea is to have Linux crunch data and deliver results reliably and instantaneously -- in real time, so to speak.

The new software is a huge

Open-source software isn't a new phenomenon. It has been winding its way through the tech world for decades, starting with Richard Stallman's Free Software movement in 1980s. But only in recent years have businesses warmed to the promise of low-cost, openly available software. In fact, open-source programs have become so popular, they now pose a legitimate threat to the established software giants.
Looking back, 2005 will likely be viewed as a turning point. It was a year when CIOs signed

Continuing its effort to become a serious alternative to Microsoft Office, OpenOffice.org released an updated version of its open-source office suite this week. OpenOffice.org 2.01 comes two months after the formal release of version 2.0. The update mainly cleans up several glitches seen in the earlier release.
The free, downloadable suite includes standard office applications, such as a word processor, a database, a spreadsheet, and a presentation manager, all of which are available in versions of the suite that can

Microsoft has extended an olive branch in announcing on Wednesday on the Team RSS Blog that it will adopt the same orange RSS icon used in Mozilla Corporation's Firefox browser.
Two months ago, Microsoft's announcement that it planned to redesign the RSS icon set off a ferocious debate. Microsoft posted a number of icon redesign suggestions, asking the community for its input. This week, Microsoft went public with its plans.

"I'm excited to announce that we're adopting the icon

People want to be able to store their information for the long term without having to continually pay to upgrade their document software to maintain this or be forced to accept the alternative: that this data will passively disappear over time if they do not do that, Sun Microsystems Inc. officials said Wednesday.
The solution to this conundrum is a mechanism that does not require customers to continue to buy document software in order to keep their information and documents
