Earlier in the day ATI released their new Catalyst 5.6 drivers. These new Windows drivers offer such new features as mobile support, an improved Catalyst Control Center (CCC), re-vamped Catalyst AI for gamers, and several other intuitive features. However, we wouldn’t be bringing you this article if there wasn’t anything to share about the Linux side of things. Today we have a look at the entirely new ATI Linux driver installer and ATI Control Panel.

It is a professional 64 bit Dream machine with supersonic speed! It is beautiful. It is about the ultimate user friendliness. It is about a lifestyle. It is a class apart. You guessed it - I am parroting Apple’s marketing.

For some reason, the performance of Apple’s gorgeous machines has been wrapped in a shroud of mystery. Yes, you could find a benchmark here and there, with one benchmark showing that the PowerMac is just a mediocre PC while another shows it off as a supercomputer, the unchallenged king of the personal computer world.

Unlike the NVIDIA Windows Forceware drivers, Linux NVIDIA display drivers don't stick to as stringent release deadlines. Since January of 2004 there have been over ten releases for Windows users while Linux fans have only experienced six release candidates. However, do these Linux drivers manage to pack a larger punch?

?Last month we took our first look at dual-core processors in the form of AMD's Opteron processors. While those processors are targeted at servers and workstations, AMD still had dual-core desktop parts to deliver. Today we bring you the first look at dual-core Athlon 64 parts, dubbed Athlon 64 X2, under Linux. We'll run through the numbers as usual but also throw in a mix of information on support, stability, cost, availability, and a few other key points on these new chips. Will dual-core on the desktop make you run out and buy a new processor?

Dual-core CPUs have finally arrived to the server/workstation market with today's announcement of AMD's dual-core Opteron processors. This is something that has been talked about for a while now and today we finally get our first crack at putting them through our gamut of tests. Although this is similar to what Intel announced a couple of weeks back, AMD's implementation is very different and, while Intel's launch was targeted at the desktop, AMD went for the high-end server and workstation market.

? If any one piece of software is the foundation of Free Software, it is the GNU Compiler Collection. The release of version 4.0 in mid-April brings many changes and new features. In this review, I compare the newly-released 4.0 with 3.4.3, using a few real world applications in C and C++.

I won't be discussing Objective-C, Java, or Ada, since I don't use those aspects of GCC. I will be talking a bit about the new Fortran 95 compiler, though..

On Friday Apple released its 'Tiger' operating system into the marketplace. Borrowing heavily from what we had seen in Longhorn (Microsoft's next version of Windows) last year, Tiger is an impressive piece of work. I'm not one of those who thinks that using a competitor is a bad idea, particularly if you can get it out first. You play this game to win and, as long as it's legal, in my book anything goes

Tiger is well-integrated with hardware and provides a solid out-of-box user experience. The user interface is mature and it has a UNIX core that remains one of the most secure on the market. With a good balance of ease of use, performance, and reliability , Tiger would seem to be the OS of choice for must users over a Linux distribution..

The wildly popular Debian-based Ubuntu Linux distribution released its newest version, code-named Hoary Hedgehog, today. But Debian's own offering, code-named Sarge, remains on the sidelines.

The question of which Linux distribution is the most popular is a difficult one to measure.

 For anyone that's been hiding under a rock for the past year or so, Cedega is Transgaming's latest WINE derivative. It takes most of the WINE codebase and rolls it in with licensed DRM code and some hacked libraries specially engineered for cross platform game play. Add in Point2Play for graphical install and program management and it shouldn't be much of a hastle to run Windows native games through Linux.

"In an article published in IT Week, Roger Howorth discussed lab results that indicated how the latest version of the open-source Samba file and print server software out-performed commercial Windows 2003 Server. The latest version of Samba, the software that helped put Linux on the technology map, has new features that make it compatible with Microsoft Active Directory. Linux thus can authenticate users from an existing Active Directory..."
