Subject: 6 Best Free Linux Benchmark Tools

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

A benchmark is the act of running computer programs in order to assess the performance of computer hardware and software applications. Hardware benchmarking assesses many different attributes such as the performance of the processor, memory, graphics card, hard disk, and the network. There are two different types of benchmarks: synthetic and application. Synthetic benchmark stress a component, such as continuously writing and reading data. Application benchmarks measure the performance of real-world applications, such as databases and servers.

Subject: A history of Mozilla browsers design

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

Writing the piece on FOSS design, it made me think about past experiences in various communities and brought back memories to the point when I decided to put down some thoughts on Mozilla browsers (won't cover other apps today) design history as I saw it, both as an user and from my involvement with its community. Even if the screenshots below are taken mostly from Wikipedia (try to run 10-15 years old binaries on a current Linux desktop), all the experiences are mine.

Subject: From Lucid To Precise: An Upgrade Diary

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

This upgrade is directly inspired from an article by Joey Sneddon over at OMG! Ubuntu. Joey upgrades a 10.04 installation to 12.04 and gets some really great results. The jump from Lucid to Precise is a significant one, so seeing his success, minus the loss of his wallpaper, is great news for those of us that are able to stick with this Jurassic release.

Subject: GNOME’s Application Menu. Smart or Dummy?

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

First off, Application Menu has not any similarity with Unity’s Global Menus. While Global Menus copy the Window App Menu from the usual spot (inside App) into Unity’s top panel -the Mac style-, Application Menu, is one single menu that steals some elements from Window App Menu and places them in a drop down – no submenu-ed – menu over Shell panel.

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

On April 27, 2012 Ubuntu released its new operating system Ubuntu 12.04. Since then I have been playing around with it, and I’ve got to say that although I had my doubts about Unity it is turning out to be quite a nice desktop environment. So without further ado let’s take a look at what’s new in Ubuntu 12.04!
