Subject: Apache OpenOffice - The IBM Edition?

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

If anyone had any real doubt, IBM is the one solid reason why OpenOffice still exits. Linux distros big and small have all left for the superior open source experience that is LibreOffice, yet IBM is stuck in the past. In a blog posting announcing the end of Lotus Symphony, IBM explained that Open Office is the future (as it was the past too for them since Symphony was an openoffice fork)

Subject: Ubuntu 12.04 Is ARM-ing Up For Better Performance

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

As shared on Phoronix in many articles already, Canonical has big plans for Ubuntu in the ARM-space. They are looking forward to making Ubuntu Linux be the first operating system to support the forthcoming ARM Cortex A15, but before that and the other achievements they have planned, they must first ship Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. With Ubuntu 12.04 there is already some exciting improvements on the ARM front, including ARM hard-float support, better OMAP4 support, and other packaging improvements. In this article are some early benchmarks of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin" from the PandaBoard ES. For some workloads, Ubuntu 12.04 is remarkably faster than Ubuntu 11.10.

Subject: Microsoft's magic bullet for Azure: Red Hat Linux

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

If Microsoft loves money, and it does, then making Linux publicly available on its proprietary Azure cloud can't come soon enough. Last June Microsoft ran a build of Linux on its Windows Azure compute fabric in the labs of the Server and Tools division, which is responsible for its cloud.

Subject: Basic Backup Script in BASH

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

Everyone should be backing up their data. This just doesn't go towards sysadmins, but even people at home who never even think of it. Just like everything else in I.T., hard drives were built to fail. If you do not make efficient back ups, you are at your own mercy when your drive will no longer spin up, meaning all that data is now gone.

Subject: Yup, Ubuntu again. Number 11.10.

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

Notice how the 11 comes before the ten. This does signify that eleven is, indeed, louder than ten. Everyone loves hating Unity. It's new. It's different. It's pretty. It's everything that Linux typically isn't. People also love hating Ubuntu in general. While people struggle to make their Linux desktops look and feel more like OSX every day and there are over 9000 different OSX-like docks out there, people apparently really hate having something that looks and acts like an OSX desktop. It's very odd.

Subject: Using DeVeDe to create DVDs on Linux

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

Your daughter's birthday was beautiful and you have lots of videos and pictures from the event that have to be organized in a nice-looking way. Your graduation party was a blast and you want to remember it properly. Whatever the occasion, whatever the content, a custom-created DVD will pack your memories nicely and will spike your geek cred because you created it and hey, it looks so cool. But what tool should you use? There are professional, paid-for programs that can help you in creating a DVD, but why use another OS and pay when you have free OSs and free software to do this? You can use the command-line approach from start to finish, but sometimes a GUI that will wrap around these utilities looks like a nicer solution. Such a solution is DeVeDe, and it even has a Windows version if you insist, but I will focus on Linux (of course!) in this article.

Subject: ZaReason Alto 3880 Review: Fastest $1000 14

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

Not only does it ship with Linux, It's one of the most powerful 14" laptops available. At first glance, the Alto 3880 will not strike envy into the hearts of any. Like any standard PC laptop, it’s dressed in glossy, molded plastic pieces. The design decisions here are almost certainly OEM driven as the laptop takes a 3-tone neutral color scheme that presents itself in a bit of an awkward way. The lid emulates a brushed metal look with an attractive ZaReason screen-print right in the center. This is the first of a couple nice touches on ZaReason’s behalf. If this unit is closed on your coffee table, your guests will probably ask you, “What’s a ZaReason?”. In this respect, I think it’s quite effective. The brushed metal look for laptop lids is a little dated now, so this will not trend well in the vanity department.

Subject: Simple Linux Auditing

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

Basic Linux system auditing is a bit tricky and data collected and information of that is out of place and readability is not that good. Recently this lead me to put together a Open Source code project and develop simple BASH scripts that do the job nicely. The code and tar ball can be downloaded from both google code or from SourceForge's website and the project website has links to documentation, help, installation and code.

Subject: Pandora Handheld To Finally Go Into Mass Production Next Month

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

Open Source Linux based gaming handheld and mini-laptop Pandora has created lots of buzz when it was revealed 4 years back. Since then the project has gone under numerous rough stages, production issues, tech spec changes and financial problems. A limited batch of 4000 units was available for pre-orders but not everyone has got the device on time. However, it looks like that bad time is finally over. They tested a prototype recently and it was a 100% success. Pandora will go into mass production next month in Germany.

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

The Android platform is arguably one of the most flexible mobile operating systems in the customization stakes. Almost every part of the Android interface can be modified to meet the requirements of the user without having to gain privileged control (often referred to as "root access"). Customization extends far beyond simply changing the wallpaper, sounds, and widgets.

The reverberations from the SOPA fight continue to be felt in the U.S. (excellent analysis from Benkler and Downes) and elsewhere (mounting Canadian concern that Bill C-11 could be amended to adopt SOPA-like rules), but it is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement that has captured increasing attention this week.
