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

E-books are currently quite a hot topic in the publishing world. Heck, for the past few months, it's been quite a hot topic here as well! Thankfully, digital publication doesn't have to mean proprietary formats and DRM-laden files.

Qualcomm has taken the unusual step of restructuring its organization in order to better protect its patent portfolio. There are other reasons for the move as well, the company said Thursday, including the ability to more quickly deliver products to customers. However, it emphasized the patent protection element in particular.

Subject: How Red Hat Decides Which Open Source Companies to Buy

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

t's a classic business school case study – when do you decide to buy a company and when do you decide to build it on your own? When it comes to open source technologies, the decision is even tougher since the technology by definition is open. It's a challenge that Linux leader Red Hat grapples with all the time. This week, Red Hat decided to go the buy route, and acquired middleware player Fusesource for an undisclosed sum. In an interview with InternetNews, Red Hat CEO, Jim Whitehurst explained why he decided to acquire Fusesource and how he goes about the buy versus build decision making process.

Subject: How to play Minecraft on Archlinux

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

Minecraft is one of the most funny and popular games of the moment. It is available for Microsoft platforms and for GNU/Linux. Made in Java relies entirely on its gameplay and not on graphics. The game offers the opportunity to gather resources from any “cube” around you and use it to build everything you can imagine in your mind. In this guide we will see two possible ways to install it on ArchLinux, how to get an account and what are the requirements.

Subject: Four Smart Things to do with the ALT+F2 Run Command in KDE

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

One of the first things that newcomers to GNU/Linux learn to do is to bypass big Start menus and blank screens (like Fluxbox) and use ALT+F2 to launch an application by simply typing in its name. Every desktop ecosystem has its own way of implementing this feature and I was pleasantly surprised, after a long absense from the KDE desktop, to see how it could be used to do some really clever things.

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

The most commonly used command in Ubuntu is “apt-get“. You can use it to install software, updatethe repository and upgrade the software. Without a doubt, “Apt-get” is a pretty handy tool and is very useful and good for what it supposed to do, but “good” can always be enhanced into “better” and this can be easily achieved with “apt-fast”.
