Subject: Hollywood still doesn't get it

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

The Dutch Piracy organization "Brein" has decided to sue ISP's UPC, KPN, T-Mobile and Tele2 after their recent victory in court. I really don't understand why. First of all, blocking a handful of IP addresses hasn't had any effect at all. But most of all, if you really want to fight piracy you got to have support from the public. And that support is crumbling with each and every effort to enforce compliance to that 10 minutes of pesky messages you get when you insert a "legal" DVD.

Subject: In A Community Survey, Unity Voted As The 'Most Hated Desktop Environment'

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

In a community survey of about 5,000 participants, Unity came out as the most hated desktop environment followed by Gnome Shell. Gnome 2.x is still favorite of most of the Linux users.

Subject: Why Mozilla And Canonical Should Join Forces

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

Where do I begin? This idea entered my head the same day that Canonical announced Ubuntu For Android. That same day, information leaked about a desktop-capable Android, most likely Android 5.0 Jelly Bean. The appeal of tethering Ubuntu to a monitor, keyboard and mouse–from an Android phone– is tremendous. The appeal of attaching an Android phone to a monitor and gaining desktop functionality while only having to use one OS is much greater, I’m afraid…

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

Decided to take a look at the latest release of Dream Studio. Dream Studio is always a little late off the start, as just the other day they released version 11.10. With 12.04 of Ubuntu just around the corner I do not really see the need for this release. I however did a short video and some screenshots.

Subject: What Is Ubuntu Doing At Mobile World Congress?

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

Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, has mastered the art of creating hype. If one may recall Canonical succeeded in creating buzz around Ubuntu with its TV offering at CES 2012. Even if the project is in the making and won't make a dent in the market as a product unless some popular TV makers such as Samsung put it on their devices, Canonical succeeded at something. The company succeeded at main tech sites to take notice of it and talk about it. Through TV, Ubuntu became the talk of the town during CES 2012.

Subject: Why Linux Is a Model Citizen of Quality Code

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

Coverity's 2011 Open Source Integrity Report gives kudos to Linux for its high-quality code. Coverity, a development testing product provider, has been kicking the code tires on open source projects since the U.S. Department of Homeland Security initiated the project in 2006. Now Coverity owns and manages the Scan program, which is the largest public-private sector research project focused on open source code integrity in the world. The latest integrity report doesn't call Linux "perfect," but "model citizen of good quality" is pretty darn close. With the Coverity Scan 2010 Open Source Integrity Report, Coverity started releasing details on specific open source projects. The Android kernel 2.6.32 (Froyo) got called out for having 359 software defects, with 25% of them considered high risk with potential security and stability problems.

Subject: OpenStack and Microsoft Hyper-V Support: What Really Went Wrong?

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

Microsoft’s Hyper-V virtualization and the OpenStack open source cloud platform apparently aren’t seeing eye to eye — at least for the moment. In fact, an upcoming OpenStack release called Essex will not support Hyper-V because the OpenStack folks saw lagging Microsoft development activity on OpenStack.

The majority of Linux distributions come supplied with a wide range of software that lets individuals use their PC to watch movies and television programs, listen to a music collection, and view photos. However, if you are looking for a more harmonious approach, turning your Linux box into a state of the art media center with an integrated easy-to-use interface, media center software will be just the ticket.

Generally speaking, I was happy with the overall Sabayon 8.0 system contents and performance. The set of applications is almost perfect, although I would add GIMP to the distribution. The system was running quickly, responsively and correctly. Until… the issues with performance came.

Like so many other telecom services providers, CDLAN is trying to push into cloud services. For CDLAN, the path to SaaS and cloud services involves an open source twist: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

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

Of course, one cannot take away Adobe Illustrator’s great features, but there is only so much you can do with all the ‘power-packed features’. Inkscape, offers you limitless scope that allows you to learn and build as you go and this definitely is what keeps it way ahead of all other similar vector software.

Subject: How to download recursively from an FTP site with Wget

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

In these days I had to download a lot of files from a remote FTP server, the best solution in cases like this one is to login on the remote server and do a zipped archive of all the files (for this use tar -zcvf archivename.tgz /path/to/archive/) , in this way you’ll have to download just 1 file that is also been compressed and FTP can do perfectly this. But this time I had no shell on the remote server, just a FTP account, so what’s the best way to download a large number of files recursively ?
