Subject: Professional Quality CAD on Linux with DraftSight

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

Many computer-aided design (CAD) users in the Linux community were thrilled recently with the beta release of DraftSight, a freeware (meaning zero-cost-but-proprietary) CAD package for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. DraftSight's creator, Dassault Systèmes, is a well-known CAD shop most famous for its Windows product SolidWorks. Although this new app is not open source, it is the first professional-level package available for free on Linux that can read and write the industry-standard .DWG file format. Free software CAD still has a long way to go, but for now DraftSight offers Linux users a rare glimmer of hope.

Subject: Android tablets must balance freedom with functionality

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

Who'd have predicted that overpriced slivers of silicon, covered in oleophobic glass trying its best to repel your sticky fingers, would become the first great technological innovation of the 21st century? Most of us thought this would happen decades ago. We were promised by those mouldy second-hand sci-fi books of our youth, and I've since wasted far too much time and money pretending the time has already come.

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

I just listened to this. It's all about rethinking our "relationship" with services such as Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Microsoft and the like -- and what we can do about it to reclaim our freedom from a technological standpoint.

Subject: Introducing Gnome Tweak Tool - GUI To Configure Gnome 3 / Gnome Shell

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

If you've been following the Gnome Shell development, you probably know that it doesn't provide a GUI tool to tweak some basic settings like changing the GTK, Gnome Shell theme or icon theme, re-enable the minimize and maximize buttons, and so on. For this reason, John Stowers has created "Gnome Tweak Tool", a 'power user' application you can use to tweak Gnome 3. But I think this tool will become very popular for any Gnome 3 user and not just power users considering how useful it already is. Read on!

"In the face of constant change, both in software technology itself and in people's attitudes toward it, long-term software projects need to reinvent themselves in order to stay relevant. I'm encouraged to see the GNOME community taking up this challenge, responding to the evolving needs of users and questioning the status quo," says Matt Zimmerman, Canonical CTO.

Subject: Nokia admits 'open' Symbian is not open

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

Open is the new closed. Nokia has admitted that its "open and direct" Symbian source code is not open, proving – once again – that the word has been stripped of all discernible meaning. Late last week, a little over three months after the Symbian Foundation shut down its web servers, Nokia returned the Symbian source code to the web. It announced the move with a blog post entitled "We are open!", and the post was penned by Petra Söderling, the "Head of Open Source" for Symbian smartphones.

FTP is a very insecure protocol because all passwords and all data are transferred in clear text. By using TLS, the whole communication can be encrypted, thus making FTP much more secure. This article explains how to configure PureFTPd to accept TLS sessions on an Ubuntu 10.10 server.
