Subject: Long-Term Review: Chakra 2012.05 "Archimedes"

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

This is for all the people who complain about me doing reviews of only the live session. Anyway, as for Chakra itself, installing and using it exposed me to many more issues, so my assessment is a bit more tempered than it has been before.

Subject: All About Ubuntu One

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

With the recent development of cloud computing, many big companies have already launched their cloud sync services. The most conspicuous examples are Dropbox, Sugarsync and Google Drive. And Ubuntu, the most popular Linux distribution currently, also offers its own cloud sync tool. this is Ubuntu One. With 5GB of free storage, Ubuntu is better than Dropbox and equal to Sugarsync and Google Drive. If you want more storage, then you will have to pay for the additional storage space. The good thing about Ubuntu is that their paid storage is split into small 20GB pieces and the cost is more affordable than other service. Also the storage space of Ubuntu One is unlimited so you can just keep adding more and more 20GB bundles to your account in order to have as much storage as you need.

Subject: DNSCrypt, crypt your DNS request on Linux

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

OpenDNS is a popular DNS provider used widely both in the server as in home desktop, one of the feature they provide to their customer is DNSCrypt, a security enhancement that should add protection against all DNS based attacks, such as cache poisoning.In the same way the SSL turns HTTP web traffic into HTTPS encrypted Web traffic, DNSCrypt turns regular DNS traffic into encrypted DNS traffic that is secure from eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attacks. It doesn’t require any changes to domain names or how they work, it simply provides a method for securely encrypting communication between OpenDNS customers and their DNS servers. The software is released as open source on GitHub.

Subject: AMD's Catalyst Evolution For The Radeon HD 7000 Series

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

It used to be -- at least when using the Windows Catalyst drivers -- that within the first few months of AMD releasing new Radeon graphics hardware that Catalyst driver optimizations would deliver measurable improvements in this short span. For the Radeon HD 7000 series, which is built upon an entirely new GCN architecture, is this still the case? Here are benchmarks of all the AMD Catalyst Linux drivers that have been released this year and then benchmarked on an AMD Radeon HD 7950 graphics card.
