Subject: Will the VA Move from Microsoft to Open Source?

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

The Department of Veterans Affairs Technology Acquisition Center is ready to lower costs, and one way to do that is to get rid of costly Microsoft Office applications and adopt cloud-based or open source solutions instead.

Subject: Oracle extends Linux support to 10 years

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

Oracle has reaffirmed that it's in the Linux business to stay by extending the support lifecycle of its own-brand build to ten years, and tempting Red Hat users with a trial offer of its Ksplice patching system. While the extended lifecycle may provide enough reassurance to win over a few customers, Oracle hopes the 30-day free trial of Ksplice for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (release 5.4 on) and Linux 6 users will prove more of an enticement. Ksplice, which Oracle bought last year, allows Linux kernel patching without the tiresome necessity of a reboot. Oracle Linux Premier Support customers will now get Ksplice as a standard part of their packages, and Fedora and Ubuntu Linux users get it for free.

Subject: How to install Cinnamon in Sabayon 8

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

The latest version is Cinnamon 1.3.1, but if you are running Sabayon 8 (GNOME), the binary version available for installation is Cinnamon 1.2.0. That, however, from my perspective anyway, is still better than the default GNOME 3 desktop that comes with Sabayon 8. This short tutorial gives the steps you need to install in – if you are running Sabayon 8.

Subject: Indie Royale, New Game Bundle For Linux

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

Indie Royal is another great game bundle that has been getting lots of love from the community. Every two weeks, a new game bundle is served. So far, Indie Royale team has released many bundles in past but most of the times, games were not available for Linux. However, they have launched a new 'Alpha Collection' bundle where all games are available for Linux. These games are currently in Alpha stages of development. By paying minimum amount of $5 (current minimum), you get three games, all subsequent updates and the final version. These proceeds will help devs in funding the game development.

Subject: Google Docs For Android Gets Magical Features: A Review

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

The apps is snappy, fast and extremely responsive. The new Google Docs turn Android devices into a powerful tools for writers. Till date a user was dependent on third party apps, but now you can take the advantage of Google Docs and create content without worries. Only issue I have is that I am not a big fan of public cloud, I want to own a copy of my created data locally which I can access at any time I want and can move around. So, I would like to see the ability to download my docs locally from the Android devices.

Big news in the OpenStack world as the Quantum networking project is set to become a core project. Quantum is a networking component for OpenStack that delivers networking technologies that that no other cloud stack (that I know off) provides. It first showed up in the OpenStack Diablo release as an incubated project and now it's set to be a core project for the Folsom release set for the fall of 2012.

Subject: Google Wallet: Doomed?

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

One of the biggest new features of both Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” and the Galaxy Nexus was improved support for Near Field Communication (NFC). One of the most touted applications for NFC technology was Google Wallet, a project to replace your debit card with your phone. Leveraging the NFC hardware in the phone and Android’s built-in authentication methods (such as facial recognition unlocking, new in ICS), Google Wallet was supposed to be a more secure way to pay at supported retailers.

Subject: The Research Works Act (RWA): why Scientific Publishing needs FOSS Methods

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

I'm sure I don't need to explain SOPA or ACTA to regular readers of Free Software Magazine. They're toxic. End of. But RWA? It stands for Research Works Act. It's not the big sexy beast of the other two but it is, in its way, just as insidious and as harmful to the freedom of scientific publishing as SOPA and ACTA are to internet freedom and it's all interconnected. Here's why.

It’s funny how through small daily tasks sometimes it happen to find new features or commands that you do not knew not, and today this thing happened to me.In particular, I had to do something trivial on the shell of a server, run : command1 | tail-n 2 i use tail to keep, from a significant long output, only the last 2 lines which then i use in another function, but beyond this, I needed to understand if command1 was terminated with an exit code of 0 or if the code was not 0 which number it was.

Subject: Your old PC can be an useful download center, here’s how

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

There are many articles covering the subject of trashware. You do not know what is this phenomenon? Trashware is when you use a PC, perhaps obsolete, to do something useful, especially using Open Source software with low requirements, with regard to system resources. Today we will not speak about media center or navigation station. We’ll talk about something much more concrete and useful! A download center … You really got it right! You will use your computer from the network to download all the files you want using the system “.torrent”. Naturally download only legal files, this is clear.
