Subject: Report: Html5, Linux's Lifeline?

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

Lets face it, Linux lost the Desktop OS war years ago. It lost partially because it arrived too late to the game, finding that users where more than happy to stick to what they know (Humans, frugal yet stubborn) and partially because the design savvy to create something that was better and more usable than the competition's offerings didn't exist in the Linux diaspora.

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

Picasa for Linux is no Longer Supported by Google. Picasa for Linux is not a native Linux application anymore. But, for now Picasa will uses WINE which comes bundled with it (so the user doesn’t have to install WINE), though it does have some tweaks to make it integrate better with Linux. Well, even this google officially drop picasa for linux

Subject: Replace Oxygen with ROSA theme on any KDE-powered distribution

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

If you are not running a KDE system, the representative icons of the Oxygen theme that I am referring to, are shown in the image below. They are too sharp to the eyes.That is why I prefer icons from the ROSA theme. They are much smoother and a lot more polished than those from the Oxygen theme. If you agree, and want to install or use them on your machine, this article shows you how.

Linus Torvalds will be receiving Millennium Technology Award, one of the highest Technology Honors for his exceptional contribution to Linux kernel and open source.The Millennium Technology Prize is awarded ever two years for a technological innovation by Technology Academy Finland. This year, Linus Torvalds, Linux's creator, and Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, maker of a new way to create stem cells without the use of embryonic stem cells, are both laureates for the 2012 Millennium Technology Prize. The two innovators will share over a million Euros and the final winner will be announced by the President of the Republic of Finland in a special ceremony on June 13, 2012. TechCrunch did a nice interview with Linus on this occasion. I will quote his views regarding Ubuntu, Desktop and Linux distributions.

Subject: Extended File Attributes Rock!

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

Worldwide, data is growing at a tremendous rate. However, one recent study has pointed out that the size of files is not necessarily growing at the same rate; meaning the number of files is growing rapidly. How do we manage all of this data and files? While the answer to that question is complex, one place we can start is with Extended File Attributes. Continue reading →

Committed to the Mesa and libdrm Git repositories last week for Nouveau, the open-source NVIDIA Linux driver, was the "major libdrm rewrite" designed to step-up this reverse-engineered driver. What impact did these invasive changes have on the Nouveau driver's performance? Here are benchmarks comparing before-and-after as well as how the Nouveau driver compares to the proprietary NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.

Subject: Deploy your own "cloud" with Debian "Wheezy"

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

The Debian Project produces an entirely Free operating system that empowers its users to be in control of the software running their computers. These days, more and more computing is being moved away from user computers to the so-called cloud – a vague term often used to refer to Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings. We are concerned that, without the needed care, this trend might put in jeopardy most of the freedoms that users enjoy when running (on their computers) software that is Free according to the Debian Free Software Guidelines.

Subject: Advanced Easy Editor Goes Bare Bones, Then Breaks Out the Sandpaper

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

Text editors that get out of the way and minimize complicated features can be desirable, depending on what you're doing and how you like to work. But Advanced Easy Editor takes "bare bones" to a painful extreme. Both strains of the app are reminiscent of sitting at a terminal running Unix. Perhaps they're just what's needed for a certain kind of job, but without so much as a text wrap feature, their appeal is highly limited.
