Roozz review

Hulu did it for video, and Spotify did it for music. Now Roozz is hoping to do the same thing for software: bring it to the cloud, in a hosted, pay-as-you-need-it format. Roozz End User (free) is slickly designed and mostly easy to use, but, for now, at least, it's a bit hampered by a limited title selection and a few technical glitches.

Samba 4 review

Samba 4.0 is a milestone release that brings Active Directory functionality to the open source SMB/CIFS (Server Message Block/Common Internet File System) file and print server. Samba 4.0 can serve as an Active Directory Domain Controller, provide DNS services, handle Kerberos-based authentication, and administer group policy.

McAfee All Access 2013 review

A few years ago, most people would only have a couple of devices, maybe a desktop PC and laptop, that they had to protect from malware.

Axon Idea Processor review

Axon Idea Processor ($135; limited demo) presents something of a paradox: I can see many potential uses for it that other applications will not fulfill, but the experience of working with it makes me wonder if it's worth it.

LiveDrive review

Livedrive is one of the first developers to the Windows 8 party with a new native app that works with the company's online storage and file sharing service. Livedrive already has provided apps for both Android and iOS, so this is a logical evolution for the company. It's available in plans that range from $8 per month on up, each with a 14-day free trial.

GNOME 2 Linux review

It seems fair to say that Linux users enjoy a degree of choice that's unmatched by the proprietary players in the PC and laptop world, what with the wide variety of both distributions and desktop environments from which they can choose. For that reason, it's all the more striking when large numbers of users express a marked preference for the same thing. Case in point? GNOME 2.
