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

They're not calling it a fork, but the W3C and the WHATWG are taking separate paths to finalizing HTML5.

Subject: This week at LWN: Akademy: Freedom and the internet

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

Mathias Klang opened this year's Akademy with a keynote look at freedom and the internet. It was something of a cautionary tale that outlined the promises that technology brings, while noting that the dangers are often being overlooked. Klang comes from an academic and legal background—he is currently a researcher and senior lecturer at the University of Göteborg in Sweden—which gives him something of a different perspective on technology issues.

Subject: How to customize power management in Linux Mint 13 - MATE

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

In Windows 7 or Ubuntu, there is the power management option for you to customize things like what to do when laptop battery is low, hard drive behavior when you are using battery, what to do when you press the power button ... However, in Linux Mint 13 - MATE edition, you will not find the power management option the Mint Menu. To customize the power management in Linux Mint 13 - MATE, you need to hit Alt + F2 then type "mateconf-editor" to open the configuration window. On that window, go to apps then expand the mate-power-manager menu and you will see many options to customize the power management.

Subject: Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Ubuntu 12.04

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

This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota and upload/download bandwidth limits with this setup. Passwords will be stored encrypted as MD5 strings in the database. This tutorial is based on Ubuntu 12.04.

Subject: Linux Mint 13 KDE Review

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

Linux Mint is an excellent distribution for a Windows user who wants to give GNU/Linux a try without having relearn everything from scratch; it's an excellent distribution for a KDE fan who wants the easy of use of an Ubuntu-based distribution and it's also a great distribution for those who don't feel comfortable with Unity of Gnome shell. On top of that it is an excellent distribution for any Linux user who wants complete control of her machine. So, if you are any of these users you should give Linux Mint a try.

Subject: TLWIR Special: Three Signs That GNU/Linux Has Arrived

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

Three recent news items provided evidence that the age of GNU/Linux on the desktop is arriving. The years of GNU/Linux languishing on the pc desktop are finally drawing to a close. Whether you are looking forward to its release or not, no one can deny that Windows 8 will be a radical departure from the Windows of the past. I have had at least 1 Windows computer in my house from 1996 to today, but Windows 8’s arrival marks the first time that I am actually not considering upgrading. The reason? Two words: Ribbon Interface.

Open source doesn't have to mean free of cost, but thanks to the generosity of open source developers many thousands of great applications are free. Why spend money when you don't have to? Though if you like and depend on an app, nothing says thanks like clicking the "Donate" button.

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

[b]Ikey, much like Clem Lefebvre,[/b] has heard the wail and gnashing of teeth over Unity and Gnome 3. He set out to make SolusOS user-friendly while maintaining a long term support operating system. Using patches and scripts mostly written himself, Ikey went about the business of making the Gnome Shell an almost identical replica of the Gnome 2 desktop. That will be the goal of the next release, SolusOS 2.
