Subject: How John Carmack Has Missed The Boat He Is Already Riding In

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

John Carmack is the face of some of the most iconic games in PC and console history. Not only has he spearheaded AAA titles like Doom and Quake, he is also the motor that drives id Software, who as a team are solely responsible for the first-person-shooter niche that lives on the...

Subject: Some Prominent Open Source Forks

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

We’ve actually seen this theory in practice on numerous occasions, and it nearly always worked out just as Torvalds predicted. As an example, take the case of LibreOffice, which started as a fork of OpenOffice.org. Most users agree that The Document Foundation has greatly improved on the original OOo code, so much so that many if not most OpenOffice users have made the switch to LibreOffice.

Subject: Linux Deepin 12.06 review

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

Though based on Ubuntu Desktop, Linux Deepin does not use the Unity desktop, but features a customized GNOME 3 interface. It is not perfect, but it is, by my assessment, better than the Unity interface.

Subject: nginx: How To Block Exploits, SQL Injections, File Injections, Spam, User Agents, Etc.

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

This short article explains how you can block the most common exploits, SQL injections, file injections, spam and user agents used by hackers and bandwidth hoggers from your nginx vhosts with some simple configuration directives. This configuration is far from being complete, but it's a good starting point. You will have to watch your logs for attempted break-in attempts and then try to modify/complete the ruleset.

There were lot of voices against the replacement of categories with pagination, and that was another controversial feature originally planned for Gnome 3.6. Guess what. It won’t happen.

Subject: Install SolusOS Patched Nautilus In Ubuntu 12.04

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

Speaking of Nautilus, Linux Mint isn't the only distribution that wants to use its own custom Nautilus; SolusOS 2, a Debian-based Linux distribution currently in alpha that uses the GNOME fallback session as default, uses a customized Nautilus too. It's not a fork but it comes with some cool patches that bring an unified, customizable toolbar with the back/forward buttons on the left, as well as some smaller patches like for instance a patch to restore the ability to create a .desktop launcher from the Nautilus context menu.

Subject: Hacker-smasher: White hats join forces to build bot-beating weapon

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

In Hollywood, the good guys nearly always win. In information security, the bad guys ("black hats") often win, in large part because the bad guys know how to collaborate much better than the good guys ("white hats"). Until now. From Lulzsec to Chaos Computer Club, hackers increasingly band together to spring sophisticated attacks on websites, mobile applications, and more, while the white hats have mostly failed to coordinate a robust defence.

Subject: VMware Virtualization With OpenGL Still Smacks Oracle VirtualBox

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

Earlier this year I said VMware's virtual GPU driver was running fast for Linux -- in comparison to Oracle's VM VirtualBox 3D guest acceleration support. This continues to be the case with VMware's OpenGL stack leading the way with superior support and performance. Recently I ran some desktop virtualization tests under VMware Fusion 4.1.3 and Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.1.18 from the Retina MacBook Pro with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion host. Even with the OS X host, VMware's 3D support exposed to the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS virtualized guest was much faster.
