Here is the release schedule of Ubuntu 12.04 "Precise Pangolin". This time Canonical goes to support 5 years to this Long Term Support [LTS] version. So this may be the milestone to them and they try to make it best and more reliable, bug-free and powerful.

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

[url=http://lxer.com/team.php][img]http://lxer.com/content/Scott_Ruecker.jpg[/img][/url] [b]LXer Feature: 22-Jan-2012[/b]What a week, no? What started out as Wikipedia joining Reddit, Mozilla and others in blacking out their websites this past Wednesday in protest to the SOPA and PIPA vote in Congress, quickly exploded into thousands of websites following suit. For one, it made surfing the internet on Wednesday a scavenger hunt to find a site that wasn't dark. And two, the ensuing media storm it created had the effect of actually getting Congress to postpone their vote on it. I have been in Los Angeles all weekend attending SCALE 10x and will have my full review for you later in the week, but I will tell you that it was bigger and better than ever. Enjoy!

Last week’s Wikipedia-led blackout in protest of U.S. copyright legislation called the Stop Online Piracy Act is being hailed by some as the Internet Spring, the day that millions fought back against restrictive legislative proposals that posed a serious threat to an open Internet.

Subject: When Should Open Source Be Written Into Law?

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

As a systems administrator, I tend to think about source code and computing platform in large numbers. Computers however are getting smaller and more powerful, and the reality of computers that we put in or on our body as a normal daily routine is coming closer, and for many is already here. When our safety, our liberty, and our sense of humanity are tied to programmable devices, should we not only hope, but expect that we should have the right to examine how these devices function?

Subject: TLWIR 31: Using Linux and Free Software to Bring Back American Innovation

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

Free Software is mainly about innovation. Free Software engineers find radical new ways of solving old problems. In doing so, they teach those whose minds have ossified how to think outside of the box. The U.S. manufacturing sector is in trouble, partially because we have been outperformed by our neighbors in the East. They have tried bold new ways of doing things, while we cling to the past. Free Software is one of the boldest concepts yet created, and I believe that it can save American manufacturing…and jobs.

Now, I’m no stranger to ebooks. Long before the release of the first generation Amazon Kindle, I read Dracula on a Handspring Visor. Once I moved into the world of smart-phones with the Palm Treo, I read many great books with the excellent offline reader Plucker. In fact, I’ve been dissing paper quite vocally since as early as 1999. That said, I love reading on my Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch.

Subject: Linux for migrants: Zorin OS

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

Some Linux distributions try to find their own way in arrangement of the user desktop. Take, for example, Ubuntu with Unity. Whatever is your opinion about this Desktop Environment, you can’t deny that it brought some fresh ideas as to how to organize the user’s desktop. At the other pole are Linux distros which intentionally adjust their look to something familiar to users of other operating systems, being it Windows or Mac. Zorin OS is one of those. The intent of such distros is to smooth the transition for users wishing to migrate from Windows to Linux.

Frank was puffing his way up the dirt road leading away from the canyon rim, focusing on his breathing. He’d actually lost five pounds in the first week of his new regime, and had also progressed from walking fast to alternating walking with short bursts of labored jogging. He hadn’t been as successful on the technical front.

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

Perl has been around for more than 20 years. During that time, it has received its share of both praise and criticism, and lots of misconceptions surround it. Much of this stems from long-outdated notions of what Perl used to be, but have nothing to do with what Perl actually is today. Perl hasn't been standing still. It's been growing continuously and evolving, and that growth has accelerated dramatically in the past few years. Moose is one of the technologies at the heart of this "Perl Renaissance", which also includes other exciting projects that have emerged, such as Catalyst and DBIx::Class.

Subject: Customize your Cinnamon desktop with Javascript

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

We've seen, in the last years at least, a big rise of the Web in everything we do and everywhere we do it. Now, lots of people need only a browser window for work or for fun, making lots of previously-used pieces of software obsolete. With the launch of the Gnome 3 desktop environment, the Web made it's way inside our installed software in a very smart way: parts of the UI are actually writen in Javascript, a Web language by excellence. Or...maybe not that much. Fabrice Bellard wrote a PC emulator in Javascript, and here's another example: a desktop environment having important parts written in this language. So if you're feeling hacky and have some knowledge of Javascript, or even general programming concepts, this article is for you.
