Subject: Revealed: 75 Percent of Ubuntu Users Also Use Windows OS

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

Chances are if you’re using Ubuntu you’re a 25-35 year old male living in either the USA or Mexico. At least, those are the findings from the recently-conducted ‘Ubuntu User Survey 2012?. With a response rate of over 17,000, the survey will help Ubuntu developers better understand their user base.

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

KDE Cascadia will be held in partnership with LinuxFest Northwest (LFNW) in Bellingham, Washington on April 28 and 29, 2012. This is a pilot of regional KDE gatherings in conjunction with established grassroots FOSS conferences to reduce the effort and expense associated with a single annual stand-alone meeting, and to increase user and developer involvement in KDE. The LFNW Organizers warmly welcome the KDE Community.

This guide explains how to set up software RAID1 on an already running LVM system (Ubuntu 11.10). The GRUB2 bootloader will be configured in such a way that the system will still be able to boot if one of the hard drives fails (no matter which one).

Subject: Gnome 3.4 Review: Impressive, Elegant, Fast

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

Complaints aside, Gnome 3.4 is a great improvement. The evolution shows that developers are looking for new ideas and new design. Yes, there are some rough edges, but all this work is not being done by some mega corporation with billions of revenues to be made from it. The great work that we see is done by a community of developers. They don't get a dime from their users. Users don't even know names of these unsung heroes. So kudos to those hard working developers who are making this world a better place by developing free software.

Protecting your computer from network and physical attacks should be at the very top of your computing to-do list. And if you are new to Pear Linux Comice OS 4, a Linux distribution derived from Ubuntu Desktop, the network security aspect has been made a little bit easier for you. The network security angle is what needs a little attention.

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

Red Hat is widely expected to crack a billion dollars in revenue in today’s earning call. This achievement will finally put to bed the argument that "nobody can make money with open source." I want to congratulate Red Hat for this incredible achievement. However, I would also like to use this occasion to show that there is significantly more at play here. It isn't just the billion dollars Red Hat is making with open source; there are many more reasons why Linux and open source are fundamental building blocks of the future:

CloudFTP is a bit of a misnomer, as it hasn't much to do with cloud computing per se. In fact, this miniature Linux-powered device is designed to make any USB mass storage device accessible via a wireless connection.

Subject: Munich's mayor claims €4m savings from Linux switch

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

Christian Ude, the mayor of Munich and occasional political cabaret artist, is trumpeting the cost savings made by switching from Windows to Linux, claiming his city has saved over €4m over the last year alone. Ude claims that Munich's IT department saved about a third of their total budget last year by dumping Windows and Microsoft Office in favor of Linux and OpenOffice. Buying new Windows software and upgrading systems so they could actually run it would have cost over €15m, with another €2.8m due in 3 to 4 years of license renewal, according to official figures.

Subject: Red Hat Earnings End Ubuntu Server Debate

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

When Red Hat (RHT) announced strong quarterly results yesterday, the figures essentially ended a recent debate about Red Hat Enterprise Linux vs. Ubuntu Server. Canonical Founder Mark Shuttleworth recently suggested Ubuntu is more popular than RHEL for some server applications. But when it comes down to dollars and cents, business-centric applications, and partner engagement, most evidence still points to Red Hat as the overwhelming Linux market leader.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin" can boot faster... sometimes. If you are not lucky, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS can boot more than twice as slow as Ubuntu 10.04, the previous LTS release. Here are boot performance results of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS running on six distinct notebooks and comparing the Bootchart results upon clean installations of Ubuntu Linux going back as far as six years from the days of the Ubuntu 6.06 LTS "Dapper Drake" release.

Of course, we wouldn't have had it any other way: we wanted to be fair, as pledged, so here is the vim article, which is a counterpart of our last one on how to make your editor the perfect programming environment. So you must have the following profile for this article to be really useful to you: you know your way around programming, so you subsequently know what you would like in an editor, and you also know your way around vim, preferably more than what we talked about in the article dedicated to it. If you read the customizing emacs article, you already have a good idea on how this article is going to be structured.
