Subject: Windows vs. Android: Does Desktop Linux Win?

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

Every tech writer on the Internet seems to want to be the one to crack the code and figure out what Microsoft plans to do with Surface. I thought I was one of them until I spent three days trying to write this article. I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t really care what Microsoft’s plans are or if they’ll pan-out for them. They bore me. They’re irrelevant now.

Subject: Why Google’s Nexus 7 tablet computer is a buy

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

But what has all this got to do with the Nexus 7, a tablet just announced by Google at the Google I/O Conference in San Francisco? A connection could be in the price. However, it is just the price, but what you get for the price. At just US $199, the Nexus 7 looks like a good deal. So what do you get for $199? Plenty!

Subject: Intel Ivy Bridge On Linux Two-Month Redux

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

It has been 66 days since Intel formally introduced their Ivy Bridge processors as the 2012 successor to Sandy Bridge. My views on Intel Ivy Bridge (specifically the Core i7 3770K model) back on launch-day were very positive in terms of the Linux compatibility, CPU performance, and the HD 4000 graphics capabilities. Since then I've conducted dozens of additional tests looking at the Core i7 Ivy Bridge on Linux in different areas from comparative benchmarks to Microsoft Windows, trying to run BSD operating systems on the latest hardware, looking at the virtualization performance, compiler tuning, etc. Here is a recap of this additional Ivy Bridge testing that has happened over the past two months of near constant benchmarking.

Measuring app success by the number of downloads is so 2009. You need to look at app retention -- the number of times the app gets used instead.

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

Just as the internet was becoming reality for most of us, Mark Shuttleworth sold his first technology venture - the second largest provider of digital certification, Thawte - to VeriSign for $575m. It was 1999 and he was 26 years old. Next, Shuttleworth paid the Russians $20m to become the first African in space - he flew aboard a Soyuz to visit the International Space Station (ISS). He also founded HBD Venture Capital and The Shuttleworth Foundation.

There are many topics that tend to come up in a recurring manner around water coolers throughout the Linux blogosphere, and not just the great "Year of" debate, either. No indeed, another shining example more than a little familiar to most of us who spend any time here is the much-abused command line -- specifically, whether it's outlived its usefulness in this era of the GUI.

Subject: Why Can’t Linux Crack The Desktop?

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

Many computer geeks have always held Linux in high regard. They endlessly talk about its stability and security features. For many years people talked about how Linux may eventually take over in the future, but the OS is yet to take off as the leading operating systems. There has been a lot of debate as to why this OS has never really taken off. There are many things that programmers, computer experts, users and geeks in general have failed to agree on. However, there are a number of things that have affected its success.

Subject: (ethics of paying for music) Letter to Emily White at NPR All Songs Considered

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

Recently Emily White, an intern at NPR All Songs Considered and GM of what appears to be her college radio station, wrote a post on the NPR blog in which she acknowledged that while she had 11,000 songs in her music library, she’s only paid for 15 CDs in her life. Our intention is not to embarrass or shame her. We believe young people like Emily White who are fully engaged in the music scene are the artist’s biggest allies. We also believe–for reasons we’ll get into–that she has been been badly misinformed by the Free Culture movement. We only ask the opportunity to present a countervailing viewpoint.[what do Lxer readers think about this?]
