Subject: Bye Bye Flash for Linux

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

According to a recent blog post from adobe, google and adobe are working on a single modern API for hosting plugins within the browser, the new plugin code-named “PEPPER” “aims to provide a layer between the plugin and browser that abstracts away differences between browser and operating system implementations.”

Subject: Microsoft's Google Cloud FUD Could Come Back to Bite It

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

Microsoft has been going after Google hard recently, and while Google deserves a lot of the grief it's getting, Microsoft's cloud FUD could come back to bite it by sending a negative cloud message to its own potential customers.

Many Webcam applications exist for Linux. If you want to play with self-portraits, there's Cheese. If you want to set up a security system in your office, there's Motion. But, if you just want to have some fun, give HasciiCam a try.

Subject: Major Linux Distributions Go Deeper With Amazon Web Services

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

It seems to be a weekly event. Every few days, a major Linux distribution introduces a new type of integration with Amazon Web Services. The usual suspects include Canonical, Red Hat and SUSE. For cloud integrators seeking to link on-premises systems with public cloud services, the Linux-to-Amazon relationships are worth watching closely.

Subject: OnLive MicroConsole Review: PC Gaming Without The PC

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

About 10 years ago I decided I didn’t feel comfortable running a proprietary operating system on my computer anymore and made the leap to Linux, and like many converts, I had to give up PC gaming. I moved over to the next best thing, joining the legion of console gamers, but once and awhile there would be that one big PC game that I would miss out on.

The first beta release of Mageia 2 was made available for download yesterday (February 21). The final stable release is not due until May 3, but from test installations of this first beta, in both real hardware and virtual environment, I can tell you that Mageia 2 may very well turn out to be the best desktop distribution of 2012.

Subject: Management Tips From Red Hat's Crazy Culture Every Company Should Steal

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

Red Hat's corporate culture is meritocracy where the collective holds the power and people don't follow an idea unless they believe it's a good one (even if it's the CEO's). The CEO could even be called a moron on open forums where ideas are discussed -- and argued over. "It's not about everybody holding hands and singing Kumbaya. A lot of people find our culture kind of harsh," Jim Whitehurst describes.

[b][i]Ever since Kubuntu lost its funding from Canonical, people have been talking about the decline of KDE. Is the concern real?[/i][/b]Is KDE dying? This question, or variants of it, have been asked with increasing frequency in the two weeks since Jonathan Riddell announced that, after the next release, Canonical would no longer pay him for his work on Kubuntu, the KDE version of Ubuntu. But is the question valid? Or simply unsupported panic?

Subject: Terrible Linux

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

I don't like the changes going on in Linux Desktop land. Unity, KDE4, Gnome shell, they're all fine pieces of software, but just not for me. Thats why I created a debian remaster, called Terrible. With a taskbar, window buttons, a shutdown button, the Xfce desktop and a IMHO nice theme and usable software.
