Subject: linux: pwning computers and devices after 20 years

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

2011 is the 20th anniversary of the first release of the Linux kernel by Linus Torvalds. Since that time, the linux kernel, together with the GNU tools and a whole host of software has been developed by enthusiasts and professional programmers into an operating system that runs on tiny embedded systems right up to the world’s fastest supercomputers.

Subject: The Myth of Openness

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

In a world of technology openness is often treated as an imperative, something that has to be preserved or promoted as something inherently good. I’ve been a long time believer in this idea myself, but as I watch the evolution of technology I’m beginning to question its value and underpinnings. What exactly is it that makes openness worthy of a pedestal it’s often being put on?

Recently, I setup a bootable Linux USB key, to act as a portable OS. On the laptop I'm using as my test machine, boot to USB is unavailable in the BIOS. I was happy to find "Plop Boot Manager," it is a great program that allows me to boot my test machine (an old Dell laptop) from my Linux USB key. The following is from the Plop web site:

Subject: Elementary OS Review: Delight to Use, Few Issues Persist

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

Elementary OS is unlike many other Ubuntu derivative distros out there. Instead of simply rearranging applications in a different order to create a new distro, Elementary project concentrates on actually building a full blown Linux distro with a consistent user interface that include custom applications and themes. The first stable release of Elementary OS codenamed "Jupiter" happened sometime last week and here is our review of it. Read on.

The recent popularity and growth of Linux Mint Debian Edition as well as the migration and planned migration of some of the alternate desktop environment based editions (Fluxbox and XFCE so far) has strummed up questions about the future of the main Linux Mint edition which is based on Ubuntu and Gnome. To help answer these growing questions, Linux Mint's founder and project lead, Clement Lefebvre has created an easy to miss F.A.Q. nestled at the end of the Linux Mint XFCE announcement.
