Subject: VIDEO: Red Hat CEO Likes CentOS Linux – Oracle Linux, Not So Much

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

From the 'CentOS vs. Oracle Linux' files: Red Hat makes its money from selling support subscriptions for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Mostly the same bits are available entirely for free by way of the community led CentOS project that clones RHEL. I recently chatted with Red Hat CEO about CentOS and the long story short is he's good with CentOS. Having CentOS out there is a good thing. It broadens our community. There are people that don't need the things that we have in subscription and it's great that there is an offering build off the same code base.

Subject: Creating Symlinks How and Why

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

As part of your Linux journey, you’ve probably heard of symlinks which are also known as symbolic links. I figured that since I fixed an error using symbolic links to setup an environment to allow my son to learn program. Part of this process forced me to use symlinks and I would like to share how and why one needs to create and use them.

Subject: Microsoft Files Motion in Apple v. Samsung to Hide Patent License Agreement Terms

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

There's been a fascinating development in the Apple v. Samsung litigation. It is possible we'll get to see the cross-license agreement between Microsoft and Samsung that the parties announced in this press release [PDF], which mentioned that it also covered Android. If we get to see it, it would be the first time we get to see exactly what are the terms of such an agreement, because Microsoft always insists on an NDA.

Subject: The Perfect Desktop - Linux Mint 13 KDE

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

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Linux Mint 13 (Maya) desktop (KDE version) that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

This snowballed into an unhealthy obsession of trying out every Linux distro that I could. I tried Ubuntu (and the official variants Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu), Zorin OS, Mint, Debian, Fedora, OpenSuse, Mandriva, etc. And no matter which ones I try, I always come back to Zorin OS.

Subject: TLWIR Special: The Amazing Philosophy of Red Hat

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

Close your eyes and imagine this scenario: Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer wakes up one day and says: “God, I love LibreOffice! It is a great alternative to Microsoft Office, and it makes people more enthusiastic about office suites in general!” Would this ever happen in a BILLION years? Probably not. Yet Red Hat’s CEO, the amazing Linux gentleman named Jim Whitehurst, recently said that he loves CENTOS. Nothing could me more demonstrative of how differently the Free Software community operates and thinks. Hatred and fierce competition are slowly being replaced by sharing and collaboration. Is this a better system? Only history will be able to answer that question. But it will certainly be a fascinating ride.

Subject: How to use location entry in Caja in Linux Mint MATE

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

In Linux Mint 13 MATE, the file manager Caja is set to use the path bar instead of the location entry for the directory path. Using the location entry has some advantages over the path bar, such as when you want to copy paste the directory path into the terminal, or when you want to access to a folder quickly by typing the path instead of searching and clicking.

Netflix has released the source for Chaos Monkey under the Apache 2.0 license on the popular social programming site GitHub. GitHub is a service designed to make it easier for developers to cooperatively work on projects which are managed by the Git revision control system.

Subject: Valve: Games run FASTER on Linux than Windows

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

Not only has Valve Software successfully ported the first-person shooter game Left 4 Dead 2 to Linux, but it actually runs faster on the open source OS than on Windows. Using high-end hardware, a version of the game running on Ubuntu 12.04 renders at 315fps, Valve's Linux team reports. That's a 16 per cent improvement over the Windows version, which only clocks at 270.6fps on the same configuration.
