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

The company behind open source blogging platform WordPress could generate almost $50 million in revenue this year. Pretty remarkable for an open source tool, wouldn't you say?

Subject: How To Install Ubuntu 12.04 On Non-PAE Capable Hardware

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

Ubuntu 12.04 (as well as Kubuntu 12.04) uses the PAE Linux kernel by default for 32bit ISOs so old computers that don't support PAE can't boot the latest Ubuntu version. But there is a way to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin on computers without PAE support: using the non-PAE netboot Minimal ISO.

Subject: Convert your audio files on Linux with Soundconverter

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

It’s useful sometime to convert some type of audio files in another, and perhaps you don’t want to search for the correct command to use from the terminal, don’t worry there is a small and nice application that can do this for you: soundconverterSoundConverter is an audio file converter for the GNOME Desktop. It reads anything GStreamer can read (Ogg Vorbis, AAC, MP3, FLAC, WAV, AVI, MPEG, MOV, M4A, AC3, DTS, ALAC, MPC, Shorten, APE, SID, MOD, XM, S3M, etc…), and writes to WAV, FLAC, MP3, AAC, and Ogg Vorbis files.More than enough for my standard tasks.

Subject: Making A Easy-To-Setup $50 Linux Multi-Seat Computer

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

While it's improved a lot recently, in the past setting up a multi-seat computer has been a pain in the ass with a lot of manual configurations needed and other peculiar steps to get the hardware/software combination working right. What if the process were a lot simpler? What if new seats could be added to a computer at a very low cost and the setup was effectively "out of the box" to the point that it's truly plug-and-play? Well, we are now effectively at that point on the Linux desktop and there is a new Kickstarter effort to help in that initiative.

Subject: Robert Milasan: Kongoni GNU/Linux aims to anybody who likes to experiment

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

Some Linux distribution are born to be big. Like Debian, Ubuntu and RedHat. Other Linux distributions are born to die, because only limited set of developers are self-interested in them. And there are distributions which are born to live small. They are changing maintaners and developers, but don't change the supporting idea. The example is Kongoni GNU/Linux. This is one of the few distributions born with an idea of freedom. This is one of the distributions approved by Free Software Foundation.

Open Source is bad for small developers, bad for business users and amazing for big software vendors. As far as innovation for humanity is concerned, the jury is still out. As far as I can tell, so far, most innovations were produced by proprietary/closed innovation organizations. Examples are the computer mouse, graphical user interface, iPhone, all NASA and government agencies innovations etc…[i](An oldie but goodie-- TC)[/i]

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

Well there's a new kid in town here in the Linux blogosphere, and it's already caused quite a stir. It's one of the Ubuntu clan, as its nickname makes clear, but that's as far as the foolin' goes. With five years of support and a scaly, tough hide, this one's here to stay. With time on its side and its eye on the prize, it may just blaze a new trail. Can freedom take hold in a world that's been dominated for so long?
