Subject: Review: Stella 6.3

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

A couple weeks ago on an unrelated review, I remember a commenter asking if I could review a Linux distribution called Stella. It seemed interesting, but I didn't think much of it until the last few days when its release of version 6.3 made news on several major Linux news sites. At that point I knew I should check it out, so here it is. (Also, if Tennessee Williams were alive today, I think that "A Linux Distribution Named 'Stella'" would have made a great title for one of his plays. Yes, I really did have to make that pun, and it won't be the last time either.)

Subject: CDE Unix desktop open sourced

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

The Open Group, the steward of the UNIX standards, has open sourced the CDE classic desktop for Unix under the LGPLv2 licence. The Common Desktop Environment and the Motif toolkit on which it is based, itself open sourced in 2000, became the de facto standard for Unix desktops in Unix's commercial hay day in the 1990s. CDE broadened the concept of simple window managers configured by means of text files which had previously dominated the Unix world; it included a desktop offering integrated applications and graphical configuration tools.

Subject: Who Loves Hadoop?

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

Mention big data and the first thing that might come to mind is Hadoop. The open source software framework has recently enjoyed a great deal of popularity among vendors and enterprise users. However, if it is to really be useful to the enterprise, Hadoop may need to be taken out of open source, argues Brian Christian, chief technology officer of Zettaset.

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

It should come as no surprise that Linux has a substantial presence in the scientific community. Solutions abound from high-performance computing clusters to visualization software. There's even an entire Linux distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux targeted for scientific computation, appropriately named Scientific Linux.

Subject: Using Rex To Automate Your Datacentre

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

In my day to day work I come across a lot of tasks that I actually "hate" to be honest. Most of these tasks consist of things that are repetitive and take up a lot of time. A co-worker of mine once told me, "if you have to do a task more than once, automate it!". This is one piece of advice that intrigued me. Ever since that day I have been thinking about automation and how to make processes flow smoother than they did before. But the main question always is, what tool are you going to use for that?

Last week the co-founder and lead developer of the game studio id Software talked about Linux games during the keynote at the QuakeCon conference. While id Software supported Linux in the past, today John Carmack judges the Linux game market not profitable enough and simply does not see any potential in it for his company.

Subject: Comment: Desktop Fragmentation

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

Competition may be good for business, but competition among Linux desktops is currently so fierce that it may end up being to everyone's detriment in the medium-term. In a recent posting on his blog entitled Staring Into The Abyss, long-time GTK+ and GNOME developer Benjamin Otte addressed the idea that GNOME is both losing market share and declining in significance. That might sound like a GNOME-specific problem, but it also has implications for other desktops.

Subject: Bodhi's ARM Branch Moves to ARMHF

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

After doing some research and testing for the last week I have arrived at the conclusion that Bodhi's ARM branch will best serve our users by moving our core from Debian Wheezy ARMEL to utilize Debian Wheezy ARMHF. I'm not going to get into the technical difference between the two platforms here - just know that in general ARMHF is faster.
