Hot on the heels of a mobile device browsing tip, I see that Mozilla has outed the next alpha version of their Fennic browser. Fennic is the mobile version of Firefox thatís currently targeted at the Nokia Internet Tablet line, but thatís likely just the beginning of device support considering the vast amount of mobile phones out on the market.
[Enter] in text documents diffrent on Windows and Linux? UTF8/UTF16 problem or?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 23, 2004
I have noticed that the few times I have had to work on computers with one of the Windows operating systems my text files have two boxes instead of [Enter], you can see an example of them in this [ http://binni.gothicmars.com/simplicity.css ] file if you are on a Windows machine.
I don't know much about how text works, how it is encoded, but is this a problem with the fact that Linux uses UTF-8 to encode text files while Windows uses UTF-16?

problems with windows programs in linux (QEMU, WINE, or linux alternative)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 17, 2005
I am trying to run a windows program (a dictionary called Le Petit Larousse 2005) under Ubuntu (Ubuntu is an ancient african word meaning "I could not handle Slackware"). I have tried three approaches, but I hit loggerheads on all of them and i need some help.
1. I have a qemu virtual machine with WinXP loaded on it. This seems the most promising approach. The problem is, i cannot get past the disk's anti-piracy protection. Namely, it lets me install everything just fine, but when i enter the disk key it replies that the key does not match the disk (it works under windows without emulation, by the way). I think that this has something to do with the way qemu builds the emulated CD drive and passes it to windows; the emulated CD drive makes the disk look like a copy to the program. I have messed with this a little bit, but since everything appears to be working to qemu the problem has no log file. I tried making an iso image of the original cd and mounting that as t
Network conversion: Windows to Linux, or Windows with Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 3, 2008
This post is intended to foster ideas and hopefully solutions for my dilemma.
First, I'd like to explain my situation.
I'm tired of the Microsoft way of doing things, namely, paying a fee to do every little thing that is needed, and in return getting solutions that aren't exactly what I was hoping for.
I've been using Linux at home for several years. I like Linux, and I like what Ubuntu is trying to do. Therefore, I have much interest in converting my business network into a Linux network.
Below, I'll detail some specifics about my current solution, and its pitfalls.
I am currently running one Windows Server 2003 Small Business. This server hosts our company exchange accounts, functions as a file and print server, hosts one proprietary medical records database/application, and as a domain server.
The server is on its last leg for a few reasons. First, it's running out of resources, which is easily resolved. Second, it doesn't have enough CALs, which are required for
