[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Version 2.9 of the Low-Level Virtual Machine is set to be released in a little more than a week, but what will it mean much for users in terms of performance? We will be looking at the LLVM 2.9 and Clang performance in the coming days (along with GCC 4.6, which was just released). We are beginning this weekend by providing a look at how using LLVM 2.9 affects the performance of the Mesa Gallium3D LLVMpipe driver relative to the previous LLVM 2.6, 2.7, and 2.8 releases.

Subject: Common user interface mistakes in KDE applications, part 4: Being GNOME friendly

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Here is a new addition to my series on common user interface mistakes in KDE applications.This time I want to talk about being GNOME friendly. While that may sound odd for a KDE developer to think about GNOME, assuming we want our applications to reach the largest possible audience, we should try to ensure GNOME users get a pleasurable experience. After all, a user is a user, there are efforts going on to ensure KDE works well on Windows and Mac OS X, I think we should also take care of GNOME users. They are at least as likely if not more likely to contribute back to our applications.

Subject: Debian 6 - does it get the credit it deserves? Absolutely not!

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Since becoming interested in Linux I haven't really paid much attention to Debian. My first ever encounter with Debian was with Debian 5 and on a very old Mitac Laptop with an AMD Athlon Mobile processor. That was a positive experience because unlike the releases of Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu at that time it was the only distribution that worked on this laptop. However, it was a very brief experience. So here we are with Debian 6 which I have been waiting to try for a long time.

Subject: HP's bold move

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

HP is freeing itself of Microsoft and mapping its own future. Right now just about everyone is talking about Google, Apple, iOS and Android but there is one player that most are overlooking - HP. The US$130 billion company, the world's largest hardware maker, has been noticeably quiet over the past couple of years but judging by recent declarations, is now ready to take a leadership role.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This is a detailed description about how to set up an OpenSUSE 11.4 server (x86_64) that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Dovecot POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc. In the end you should have a system that works reliably, and if you like you can install the free webhosting control panel ISPConfig 2 (i.e., ISPConfig runs on it out of the box).

Subject: Bodhi Linux 1.0 review

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I liked from the beginning the idea behind Bodhi Linux and so I followed the progress of this young version of Linux and take advantage of version 1.0 (congratulations to Jeff and the entire team) to make a review. For the uninitiated Bodhi Linux is a recent project that taking as a base Ubuntu 10.04 “reconstructs” the Enlightenment desktop, it use the login system manager of LXDE (and also as the terminal) and offers its own package system (.bod); The system being based on Ubuntu is still compatible with .deb and dpkg and aptitude can be used without problems.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The discussion surrounding issues with the Linux kernel DRM code has been quite interesting. From the 40+ comments so far, there's been some interesting feedback from some of the key open-source driver developers along with AMD. In particular, the generation to succeed the next-generation of AMD graphics processors (what will be the "Radeon HD 8000 series" if they continue with the same marketing names) should be a pivotal moment for AMD's open-source strategy.

Subject: MS plans response to HP's webOS ... in 2013

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hewlett-Packard's recent presentation of its plans to place webOS at the heart of a broad cloud strategy highlighted a route that Microsoft, Google and Amazon will also take, in their different ways. Essential to HP's desire to offer an end-to-end cloud platform – giving it control of a vast range of web apps and devices – is a new-style operating system that can be embedded in each of those end points. This is not a traditional OS: it does not need to participate in the OS wars and can live alongside other systems. It is stripped-down in function and footprint and largely based on the browser.

Subject: Is Microsoft trying to equate selling computers without Windows to software piracy as a new world policy?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Apparently Microsoft wanted to make a statement specifying that they could take any legal action Microsoft considered pertinent given the builder's lack of a Microsoft certificate of authenticity or original license included along with a computer built/sold by the independent builder. The builder states that given that they sell their computers with Free Software instead of Windows, the software has licenses...

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Remastersys is a complete system backup tool, but it can also be used to create your own customized remix of an Ubuntu and Debian installation. Basically, you customize a running system and create an install disk that will recreate it. If you've ever wanted to create your own distribution, you won't believe how simple this is to use.
