Apple might be trying to pull a fast one by naming their latest OS X incarnation, Mountain Lion, but some of us saw right through it.

Subject: Pardus Kurumsal 2 for the Second Time

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

A few days ago, I experienced a motherboard failure. This gave me ample opportunity to do a fresh Linux installation. The first disk on hand was Pardus Kurumsal 2 for AMD64. I thought it would be interesting to give the distribution another spin.

Subject: Useful commands for Linux normal users and administrators

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

Recently, CLI is mostly used by Linux/Unix administrators since most popular linux distros come with a complete set of GUI applications that make the user use less and less the command line. In our previous post, we saw 11 useful commands for Linux/Unix administrators, in this post we will see a list of useful commands useful for both administrators and normal Linux users.

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

Does Red Hat Enterprise Linux perform any better (or worse) than the various "Enterprise Linux" distributions that are derived from RHEL? Now that Scientific Linux 6.2 was released, here is a performance comparison of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Oracle Linux, CentOS, and Scientific Linux across three different systems.

Subject: Flashkill: Adobe’s worst decision ever?

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

Adobe, as we all know, is on a killing spree recently, and the ones most affected by their actions are Linux and all its friends. After dropping support for AIR for Linux, and Flash for mobile, the California-based company has decided to abandon the Linux version of its popular yet universally hated Flash player. The news, oddly enough, didn’t cause any major panic among penguinians, as Flash will still live on for Google Chrome users via the Pepper plug-in API. Though the announcement might seem like a jubilant moment for many HTML5 supporters, it is still a rather disappointing decision as far as the Linux platform is concerned. The question is whether this move by Adobe will affect Linux in any way? And, is this their worst decision ever?

Subject: Plasma Active lock screen

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

One thing that was never really great in Plasma Active was the interaction with power and lock capabilities. We had a power button widget in the panel despite all devices having a power button. The lock screen looked pretty, but it only did locking. A new QML UI for the log out dialog was provided but it never felt quite right to me, though it looks so much nicer on Plasma Desktop compared to what we had previously. (This is a nice example of how the different Plasma workspaces help each other improve.)

Subject: VA could give MS Office the boot

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

With an eye on reducing ongoing software costs, the Veterans Affairs Department said it is exploring alternatives to Microsoft Corp.’s longstanding Office Suite productivity software that has dominated federal desktops for two decades. The VA currently owns and operates the 2003, 2007 and 2010 versions of Office, which include Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and which are being used by more than 300,000 VA employees. Use of the integrated software suite has provided for interoperability between the VA’s many units.
