About ITB

General Information and History

Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), was founded on March 2, 1959. The present ITB main campus is the site of earlier engineering schools in Indonesia. Although these institutions of higher learning had their own individual characteristics and missions, they left influence on developments leading to the establishment of ITB.

In 1920, Technische Hogeschool (TH) was established in Bandung, which for a short time, in the middle forties, became Kogyo Daigaku. Not long after the birth of the Republic of Indonesia in 1945, the campus housed the Technical Faculty (including a Fine Arts Department) of Universitas Indonesia, with the head office in Jakarta. In the early fifties, a. Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, also part of Universitas Indonesia, was established on the campus.

In 1959, the present lnstitut Teknologi Bandung was founded by the Indonesian government as an institution of higher learning of science, technology, and fine arts, with a mission of education, research, and service to the community.

Government Decree No. 155/2000 pertaining to The Decision on ITB as Legal Enterprise (Badan Hukum) has opened a new path for ITB to become autonomous. The status of autonomy implies a freedom for the institution to manage its own bussiness in an effective and efficient way, and to be fully responsible for the planning and implementation of all program and activity, and the quality control for the attainment of its institutional objective. The institution has also freedom in deciding their measures and taking calculated risks in facing tight competition and intense pressures.

Location
Bandung, with a population of approximately one and a half million, lies in the mountainous area of West Java, at an altitude of 770 meters. The ITB main campus, to the north of the town centre, and its other campuses, cover a total area of 770,000 square meters.

KDE vs Gnome

What is a desktop?

The term desktop refers to the graphical environment where you do your work. The desktop usually consists of a workspace (called the root window) with pretty icons and quite possibly a menu that pops up when you click on it, usually a panel on the top or the bottom and/or top of the screen with a menu and a lot of other practical services you may never even notice.

The most important part of any desktop is the window manager, this is the application that handles window placements and movements. The window manager is what draws a border (or no border) around your windows and makes them maximize, minimize, moves and behave according to your preferences.

The GNU Network Object Model Environment

The GNU Network Object Model Environment, or GNOME, is the brain-child of Miguel de Icaza. GNOME was started in 1997 and has matured to provide a complete set of software libraries and clients.GNOME depends on a cognizant window managers to provide the desktop. GNOME user-friendly suite of clients provide a consistent and user-friendly desktop.

The K Desktop Environment (KDE) has been available for Linux and XFree86 since 1996. KDE was started by a German Linux software developer named matthias Ettrich, and has gone through several major revisions. KDE is a graphical desktop environment that includes a huge suite of clients, including a free office suite named KOffice.

KDE vs Gnome, What is the better desktop environment?

KDE and Gnome are complete desktop environments that consist of a large number of tightly integrated yet still separate pieces of software. Gnome uses a window manager called metacity, KDE uses kwin. Both these desktops can be used with any other window manager if you do not like the default choice.

Linux is like Lego. You can build your own desktop environment. Both KDE and Gnome are just big packages with software aimed to look and feel the same way, work well together and generally give you a nice experience. If you dislike a component, then replace it with something else. It’s that simple.

Application that are “made for gnome” or “made for kde” can be used with any desktop. This only means that that the program use a set of library functions found in their underlying gnome-libs or kdelibs. You do not need to use the actual desktops to use the applications, software made for KDE and Gnome can be used with any window manager / desktop as long as you.

Introduction to Linux

What is Linux?

Linux, which is named after Linus Torvalds, is normally pronounced LINN-nix or LINN-nux though LYE-nux is acceptable. The Linux mascot is the penguin. The central Linux website is Linux Online.

Linux is a free Unix-type operating system originally created by Linus Torvalds with the assistance of developers around the world. Developed under the GNU General Public License , the source code for Linux is freely available to everyone.

The kernel, or engine, of the operating system was created by Finnish graduate student, Linus Torvalds, at the University of Helsinki in 1991. Torvalds created the Linux kernel because he liked Unix but couldn’t afford a commercial version. He drew together a band of developers from around the world and they have been developing the Linux kernel ever since, under Torvalds’ supervision. Critically important parts of the rest of the operating system came from the Free Software Foundation GNU Project, the XFree86 Project, and various other projects.

Linux combines the seasoned, mature features of Unix with support for modern hardware such as ZIP drives, colour printers, sound cards, Voodoo cards, Palm Pilots, and CD writers. One of the distinguishing features of Linux is the amount of choice given to the user. There are at least a dozen choices in graphical user interface alone, ranging from simple interfaces to the slick new KDE and GNOME environments. Linux is highly valued for its speed and stability–it’s fast and it rarely crashes.

Choosing a Distribution

Although Linux is free (you can download all the parts and put it together yourself), it’s more convenient to purchase a ready-made distribution on CD. Each “distro” has a slightly different flavour and texture. Once they’re up and running, they’re all pretty much the same, but each distribution has different installation, maintenance, and upgrade procedures. They also vary in the amount, nature, and currency of the free software they include. Some distros include “personal use” versions of commercial software, such as WordPerfect 8 for Linux. Every distro offers well over 1000 free programs.

Linux distros are: Fedora Core Linux, SuSE Linux, Slackware Linux, Mandriva Linux, Debian GNU/Linux, Gentoo Linux, Ubuntu Linux, and many more. You can search another distros by googling. These distros are frequently sold at computer stores and they’re often included as CDs in Linux books. If Linux is not carried in your local store, you can download or order the distros directly from the companies via the web, or from online discount stores. If your location is Indonesia, you can download distro from Informatika ITB or Kambing UI.

Which distro should you pick? The best guideline is this: if you have a friend who is experienced with Linux, use the same distro that he or she is using. Getting help will be much easier that way. If you’re on your own, you can try many distro (install or Live CD) and finally you can make decision which distro that you will use. You can review some distros at Linux Distributions.
