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

Different operating systems give you different degrees of freedom, different degrees of access to knowledge of “what is inside”. And, what is more important for a non-technical user, they give you different user interfaces.

Subject: How to permanently disable the menubar in Gnome terminal

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

Normally, when you right click on the Gnome terminal, there will be the option to turn on/ off the Menubar. When you click on this option, the menubar in the Gnome terminal will disappear. However, if you close this terminal and start another one, the menubar will appear again and you will have to turn it off once more.

So, in my opinion, Ubuntu's target audience is simply the one which wants to use computing power to get a job done.

Subject: Cropping (lossless) JPEGs with CropGUI. Simplicity Itself

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

The most used graphic program in the free software jungle is Gimp. It is a hugely powerful piece of software, but when all you want to do is to crop a JPEG image without any loss of quality, it's positive overkill: that's when you need CropGUI. As the name suggests, CropGUI is a graphical front end for cropping images, written in Python. That's it. That's all it does. No bloat, no dense feature set. One piece of software, one function. It's not in the repositories or available as a third-party binary but installing it from the compressed tarball is, like CropGUI itself, simple.

Above all, IT needs to ensure that critical systems keep running no matter what, even during a system upgrade because when things go south, it can get ugly in a hurry for you. It's a lesson RBS, a Scottish Bank, has been learning the hard way.

Subject: Microsoft and Amdocs: The Linux Connection Is Just FUD

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

Trying to understand the recent patent licensing deal between Microsoft and Amdocs is like watching a poker tournament, where you never know if a player is bluffing or if they have a pat hand. In this case, it appears that Microsoft is bluffing when it comes to Linux. An inspection of the facts, as they are known, indicate that the “Linux licensing” element of the story is only more Microsoft FUD–with Amdocs being a willing participant.

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

A lot has been happening since CloudStack was proposed as an project for Apache and accepted as an incubating project. Since April, a lot of work has been going on to do things “the Apache way” and prepare for the first release out of the Apache incubator. If you’re not on the developer mailing list, though, it might not be entirely clear what’s going on – or when you can expect the first release.
