Subject: Russia Dumps Linux for Windows

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

There are many speculations in the Internet about the implementation of Linux-based operating systems and free open source software in general on national level. Which countries and projects are usually named? RedHat in Pentagon? Mandriva school project in Brazil? Government projects in Russia and China? They are at the top of the list, aren’t they?

Subject: Is GNOME in Free Fall?

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

Between the arrival of both MATE 1.4 and KDE 4.9 and the emergence of SolusOS' brand-new GNOME Classic on the scene, there's no denying it's been an exciting few weeks here in the world of Linux desktops. That, in turn, has made it all the more difficult to witness the identity crisis that has apparently befallen GNOME itself.

Subject: What's Valve Really Up To?

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

Over the past few months, some of the most disruptive news in gaming has been from Valve. The company seems to be making a baffling sharp left-turn into completely new territory. On the surface it shows a few basic components of its master plan, leaving us to only speculate on what the rest might be. The most ambitious of these revelations, is the announcement that they are planning to try and get the entire catalogue of 2500 games on Steam ported to Linux.

Subject: Linux laptop tuning with Samsung 830 SSD and Lubuntu

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

In the last time I was very dissatisfied with the overall system performance of my Sony Vaio VPCEB3Z1E Laptop and the installed Ubuntu 12.04. For example it took more than 10 seconds to start firefox or the chromium browser. Even the installation of new software packages via apt-get was slow. The main performance impact was caused by the installed Samsung SATA drive which was not able to read more than 80 MB per second.

Subject: Google forced to temporarily deactivate copy protection for Android apps

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

Google has been forced to temporarily deactivate a security feature in Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) intended to make it harder to pirate paid-for apps. The feature resulted in some purchased apps no longer working after devices on which they were installed on were restarted, requiring the user to reconfigure or even reinstall them. According to a bug report on Google Code, affected apps include several live wallpapers and applications with widgets or access to Google's account system.

Subject: Qt Developers Work Out Plans For Time-Based Releases

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

Following the Qt 5.0 release, developers of this open-source tool-kit will aim to issue feature updates on a six-month cycle. Joao Abecasis reignited the discussion today concerning setting up time-based releases for Qt. "While releasing Qt 5.0.0 is an ongoing process, I think this is a good time to start planning future releases (5.0.1, 5.1.0, etc.) and, most importantly, we need to discuss *how* we'll get them out on time. With the setup we now have we should quickly move to a strict time-based release schedule. A predictable schedule allows all interested to align with the project and contribute to make the next release the traditional Best Release Ever (tm) of Qt."

Subject: Saying Goodbye To PCLOS

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

The boot took forever. Several times I thought the system had stalled, then the progress bar would creep ever so slightly forward. After more than a few minutes I was prompted for the keyboard language, so I used the USB mouse I attach to the laptop whenever I’m at home and selected “English.” After another two or three minutes the desktop started showing up, piece by piece, but still very slowly. I killed time by playing with the mouse a bit, watching the cursor play across the screen. Unfortunately, when the installation was complete, the mouse and keyboard suddenly quit working. With no way to address the system, I took it down cold with the power button and rebooted. Again, it took forever to load and I lost use of the mouse, trackpad and keyboard the instant the boot was complete. This was only a minor inconvenience. I’d soon get help on the PCLOS forums and would have this problem fixed in short measure.

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

For years, there has been one constant for users making the switch to Linux: gaming was going to be a thing of the past. Not that people haven’t tried, of course. Software like WINE (with its gaming spin-offs like Cedega and PlayOnLinux) have made it possible to run Windows games on Linux with mixed results.
