Subject: Announcement: RapidDisk Project: New release, web site, and more...

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

Well, I have a lot of updates to share for this project. First and foremost, I now have a dedicated domain for the project at http://www.rapiddisk.org. This is a Wiki site documenting everything that I can think of relating to the project in a nice and organized manner. This site also includes a bug tracker: http://bugs.rapiddisk.org for bugs, feature requests and or documentation/website errors. I have also decided to use this Google+ Page as the official blog for the project from this point on. Some other changes include...

Subject: Major ReactOS Release: Themes, Shell, ACPI, WiFi

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

ReactOS, the open-source operating system project that's been aspiring to be Microsoft Windows NT binary compatible for more than a decade, is out with a major release -- the first in nearly one year. ReactOS 0.3.13 was released in March of 2011 while coming out today is ReactOS 0.3.14. For those not familiar with (or have since forgotten about) ReactOS it's the free software operating system project that tries to be binary compatible with applications and device drivers targeting Microsoft Windows NT 5.x and later (what is effectively Microsoft Windows 2000 and beyond).

Subject: Don't panic? Windows 8 and the -ribbonification- of Explorer

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

When Microsoft first revealed that the Explorer file manager would be outfitted with a ribbon-style toolbar in Windows 8, responses were loud, passionate, and frequently negative. The company recently described changes that it has made to Windows 8's Explorer in response to the feedback. These include some small modifications to the ribbon experience along with some other refinements of Explorer's new features. Though the changes themselves have been welcomed, the continued hostility toward Explorer's redesign remains. [size=10]I know this isn't, strictly speaking, a Linux/FOSS story -- but Gosh! Doesn't this story sound awfully familiar? Perhaps this will make some of us feel just a little better about some recent trends, Or not. - Bernard[/size]

Subject: How to make DuckDuckGo the default search engine in Chromium

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

The folks behind DuckDuckGo have been deftly positioning the search engine as one you should be using, if you are tired or want to avoid snooping by Google and others like it. It is a message that I have bought into, and I think you will too, once you get to know how Google and other search engines track and bubble you. Ok, so Chromium’s developers have not recognized DuckDuckGo as a major search engine, but that should not stop you from adding it to the list of search engines in Chromium and making it your default (search engine). This brief tutorial shows you the simple steps to make it happen.

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

This guide shows how to create your own standalone Compiz session in Ubuntu (the instructions below are for 11.10, but they may work in other Ubuntu versions). Using a custom Compiz session gives you flexibility to load only what you want, so you can get a lightweight session, while still using Compiz.

It is going on a year since showing how Unity, Compiz, GNOME Shell & KWin affect graphics/gaming performance, so here is an updated 2012 look. In this article are a variety of OpenGL benchmarks run under the current latest desktops as will be found in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS: Unity, Unity 2D, GNOME Shell, GNOME Classic, KDE Plasma, and Xfce. AMD and NVIDIA graphics were tested with both the latest closed and open-source drivers.

Subject: Unsung Heroes of Linux, Part One

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

Everyone knows and loves Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux. Mark Shuttleworth, the creator of Ubuntu Linux, is pretty famous. Richard Stallman, the founder of the Free Software Foundation and creator of the GPL, is equal parts famous and infamous. But surely there is more to Linux and Free/Open Source software than these three. And indeed there are thousands upon thousands of people toiling away fueling the mighty FOSS engine; here is a small sampling of these important contributors who make the FOSS world go 'round.

Subject: My life with Coherent, part 1

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

Coherent is a full fledged Unix that runs on a simple 386 with a few megabytes of memory - incredible, but true. The kernel is just a few hundred KB, so it boots in an instant. But the best thing was its price: only $100. With every new release of QEMU or VMware I tried to reinstall it - with little result. That is, until QEMU 0.14 was released.

LAN parties offer the enjoyment of head to head gaming in a real-life social environment. In general, they are experiencing decline thanks to the convenience of Internet gaming, but Kenton Varda is a man who takes his LAN gaming very seriously.
