Subject: Ubuntu's Unity Decision Affects 2D Performance Too

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

Last week I delivered OpenGL/3D benchmarks of Ubuntu 12.10 when comparing the performance of the default Unity desktop to the now-defunct Unity 2D environment. Canonical's decision to kill Unity 2D means that for those now forced to use the Compiz-based Unity may experience lower frame-rates, high power consumption with Unity-over-LLVMpipe, and other differences. Additional testing has shown how Unity is affecting the 2D graphics performance.

When an HP executive stated in an interview last week that he believed the next HP tablet could take on the iPad, my first thought was the guy is delusional -- or perhaps he doesn't choose to remember the ill-fated TouchPad, the last tablet entry from HP that last a whole 45 days on the market.

Subject: Android License Transparency, It’s Your Right

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

Karl Fogel, board member of the Open Source Initiative and QuestionCopyright staffer, recently posted a “modest proposal” on his personal blog. Karl suggests that mobile application marketplaces, most notably on Android, should make it obvious what license an application is released under before the user installs it.

Subject: Is Fedora 17 GNOME Really a Miracle?

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

The truth is that it was quick as flash at the very beginning. But, as I went on, the system felt more and more sluggish. Add here the usual Fedora difficulties, or annoyances, if you want, with getting multimedia literally singing and dancing. Add here the menu structure, which I’ve never gotten to understand. And, as a result, you probably come to the same conclusion as I do

MySQL developers are finding that test cases and revision histories aren't being readily published by Oracle and bugs are being quietly set to private. Is Oracle closing the MySQL source or just being a bad communicator?
