Subject: OpenShot! We can be all great directors, with our Linux, of course

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

Today we all have in our pocket, in the office or our child’s room, a device for shooting videos. Maybe with high quality or HD. Today, with this simple tutorial, I’ll show you how to do, i do not say a new film for an Oscar, but some video with friends or some home movies with your family. Maybe you can take a birthday, a battesimo or a wedding and at your home with a few hours of patience you’ll have a really catchy videos. Video effects, background music, effects with dynamics writing and anything else! In short, everything you want with very little. In fact you can install this software on any PC running Linux (for example in this article I will use Ubuntu 11.10) and with video requirements not so high.

Subject: Customizing emacs for development

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

First and foremost, a word of warning: while the previous articles were centered around the beginner, this article is for more advanced users, that already "speak" a programming language or two, and want to customize their editor towards it being ideal for the task. So you are expected to be more or less proficient in the ways of emacs, to be able to use it for day to day tasks and have the ability and desire to learn something new. After all, it will be for your own reward, and your programming tasks will become more efficient.

Subject: Ubuntu: “We’re not Linux”

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

I was getting set to download and test the latest Ubuntu release (right now in beta), and decided it might be wise to skim the release notes to see what’s new.Under “new features,” I spied this: “Beta-1 includes the 3.2.0-17.27 Ubuntu kernel which is based on the v3.2.6 upstream stable kernel.” The Ubuntu kernel? Give me a break, guys.Lest you wonder whether this was an intentional naming decision, it does seem to be that Canonical is deliberately avoiding using the L word. The release notes were imported by Canonical’s Kate Stewart (release manager) with the “Ubuntu kernel” language.

Subject: Fedora Is Still Unsure About ARM Support

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

While Ubuntu support for ARM hardware is in great shape with Canonical investing significantly in the rapidly-growing ARM-based mobile market and the to-be-growing ARM server-space, plus other Linux distributions taking on ARM, official support for Fedora on ARM hasn't been quick to come by. In fact, Fedora developers still remain unconvinced about taking on ARM as a primary architecture...

When Maggie Vail first heard about open-source software, she said, “it felt like punk rock.” Ms. Vail, a longtime member of the independent rock music scene, is one of the executive directors of CASH Music, a nonprofit group that wants to bring some of punk’s do-it-yourself spirit to an area that many musicians find frustratingly complex and expensive: managing their music and fan interactions online.

Subject: Linus Torvalds Helps Busting Microsoft's Bogus Patent

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

Microsoft was using this patent against Motorola and B&N. Motorola found a post by Linus Torvalds which predated the Microsoft patent by three years. Microsoft lawyers were not happy with this and argued with Linus over the confirmation of the date to an extent that the creator of Linux told them to stop that stupid argument. "At some point, I basically said: ‘OK stop this stupid argument, can we go on to something else?" says Linus.
