Subject: Why I Support Google And Oppose YouTube-MP3.org

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

Google is one of the few companies (or may be the only company) which fights for their users. Attacking them is not going to do any good. It will only weaken the only friend we have in the industry dominated by abusive monopolies like Microsoft or draconian forces like Apple.

Subject: Zentyal 3.0 Beta | Zentyal 2.3-2 beta installer available (Feature reeze is ON)!

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

We are glad to let you know that Zentyal has already entered the feature freeze period for 3.0, meaning that from now on we will be focused on polishing and bugfixing until September. To celebrate this, we bring you a new installer including new versions of most of the packages. This means that in this release you can find almost all the functionality that will be present in the final Zentyal 3.0, but it's still a beta with lots of rough edges.

Subject: Top Social Media Applications for Linux

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

When you look online for reviews of social media applications, Windows and Apple platform applications always dominate the list. Linux geeks, however, have a long history of using social media tools to discuss geeky and techie topics online. Until fairly recently, however, most large scale development around social media tools on Linux was virtually non-existent. Linux users were expected to follow their usual fare of bare bones interfaces and text based controls. With the growing interest of Linux on the desktop for the more general audience, however, many developers have started putting effort toward creating more user friendly applications for social media. While this of course is beneficial for newer users of Linux who came from the Microsoft and Apple platforms, using and contributing to these social media apps is also in the best interest of anyone who wants to further the Linux cause and gain more market acceptance for our favorite open source operating system.

Subject: 5 More Best Free Linux CAD Tools

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

Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computer technology to design objects, real or virtual. It often refers to the drafting (technical drawing and engineering drawing) of a part or product, including entire buildings. However, CAD software is used in a wide variety of other fields such as electronics and woven fabrics. CAD is prevalent in industry that uses design modelling or prototyping of graphical architectural depictions.

The FreeNAS development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of FreeNAS 8.2.0-RELEASE. FreeNAS 8.2.0-RELEASE is the first release on new branch of code that incorporates tighter integration between the ZFS command line and the FreeNAS GUI. This release also features the ability to run arbitrary services and interact with them through the FreeNAS GUI in a FreeBSD jail. This jail allows a wide range of third party software to be run on top of FreeNAS, using the PBI format from PC-BSD or FreeBSD packages or ports, as well as official FreeNAS plugins.

Subject: How to add an entry for a Linux distribution in Windows’ boot menu

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

To make managing your dual-boot system less of a hassle, especially when both operating systems are installed on the same hard drive, the recommended location (for the Linux boot loader) is in the first sector of the Linux distribution’s boot or root partition. After that, you must then add an entry for the Linux distribution in the Windows boot menu.

Subject: Convert XML to CSV the ugly way using Unix utilities

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

I recently wanted to export my email address book from Sylpheed email client and import it into my Gmail account. Unfortunately, Gmail wants to import contact lists as CSV files, and there isn't an export-address-book-to-csv feature in the otherwise wonderful Sylpheed. Worse, the Sylpheed address book is in XML format, and XML-to-CSV conversion isn't straightforward.

Subject: Allwinner offers support for XBMC media center for MK802, Mele A1000, other inexpensive Android devices

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

The Allwinner A10 is a low power ARM Cortex-A8 processor with Mali 400 graphics. It’s used in a number of inexpensive Android tablets, including most of Coby’s latest devices. But it’s also a popular chip for Android-powered set-top-boxes (or mini PCs) such as the MK802, Mele A1000, or Mini X. You can pick up any of those little boxes for less than $100, hook up a keyboard, mouse, and TV, and play Android games, surf the web, and even stream video from Netflix. The little boxes also run Ubuntu, Fedora, and other desktop Linux operating systems surprisingly well.
