Subject: Can KDE Survive Without Ubuntu?

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

I do see a lot of impressive work is being done on KDE outside Ubuntu. Aaron Seigo has launched the world's first 'pure' Linux (non-Android) tablet. So, why is there a question on KDE's survival without Ubuntu?

Soon, the kernel will support several AMD graphics cores that are used in recent Radeon graphics cards and in various upcoming processors. In systems with Intel graphics, using hibernation can cause memory corruption. The development of Linux 3.4 has started.

It's pretty good, and it's definitely quite a bit better than MGSE (and way better than GNOME 3/Shell), but it's still missing a few things that keep me with GNOME 2/MATE.

Subject: 10 Funny And Useless Linux Command

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

One can never say it enough: the terminal is a very powerful tool, and is probably the most interesting part in Unix. Among the plethora of useful commands and scripts that you can use, some seem less practical, if not completely useless. I’ve selected for you a couple of commands that are useless because they are funny, but not funny because they are useless (or maybe the other way around for some). If you are searching for ASCII art, random math curiosities, or various (in)utilities, this is the best of the useless.

In part one we introduced you to Linux editors and gave a storm course on vim. It's now time to dismantle the rumors that we're subjective and talk about the other side, emacs. In some ways, the two editors are opposite one another, mainly from historical reasons, as you will see. We hope you will enjoy this tour and that we'll help you make up your mind.

Subject: Say hello to Canonical's new Linux desktop: Ubuntu 12.04 beta review

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

Canonical’s next long-term support release of its flagship Linux distribution, Ubuntu 12.04 is in late beta. This next release, due out on April 26th, is in beta now. I’ve been using it for several weeks now and so far, so good. Indeed, the new Ubuntu is good enough already that I’ve it on my default Ubuntu system: a 2009-era Gateway DX4710. This PC is powered by a 2.5-GHz Intel Core 2 Quad processor and has 6GBs of RAM and an Intel GMA (Graphics Media Accelerator) 3100 for graphics. No, it’s not fast, but unlike Windows 8’s beta, you don’t need a fast computer for Ubuntu.

Subject: Is Fragmentation Breaking the Android Dev's Will?

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

Fragmentation in the Android universe is causing some developers to flee, according to a recent study from Appcelerator and IDC. "It's not just that Ice Cream Sandwich is new; it's also the fact that very few of the tablets currently available actually support [it]," said Appcelerator's Mike King. Further, there are many devices that cannot run ICS, he added.

Subject: Confirmed, Wasteland 2 Coming To Linux - Hits $1.5 Million Target

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

Wasteland, the original post-apocalyptic RPG game will have a sequel as Wasteland 2. Brian Fargo who Executive Produced both Wasteland and Fallout will be heading the team.Wasteland 2 was on Kickstarter for last few days with a target of $900k. A Linux version was promised at $1.5 million funding and they have made it to this mark. So yes, there will be a Linux version and you can confirm a DRM free copy for yourself for $15. The game won't be a first person shooter. With a top down perspective you will get a tactical feel for the situation. It will be turn based, tactical, with a storyline that will be deeper and broader.

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

Following recent advancements in the open-source Radeon Linux driver like 2D color tiling support, I've carried out some new benchmarks of the open-source Radeon Gallium3D driver compared to AMD's official Catalyst driver. This time around, the open-source driver is seeing tests against AMD's binary blob when various performance-optimizing tweaks are enabled to see where the performance stands today.

Subject: The Compiler That Changed the World Turns 25

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

Last year, Linux celebrated its 20th anniversary. The kernel that Linus Torvalds started as a hobby project helped the Internet bloom, challenged proprietary operating system dominance, and powers hundreds of millions of devices. From hacker toys like the dirt-cheap Raspberry Pi to most of the Top 500 Supercomputers, Linux dominates the computing industry. But it wouldn't have been possible without GCC, which turns 25 today. Before Torvalds started hacking away on Linux, Richard Stallman and started the GNU (GNU's Not UNIX) project and part of that was the GNU C Compiler (GCC). Eventually that became the GNU Compiler Collection (also GCC) but we're getting a little ahead of the story.
