Hopefully the fourth time is the charm!

Subject: A Few Thoughts on Why Businesses Resist Migration to Linux

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

With the upcoming release of Windows 8 in October, the computer world appears to be divided in its opinion of Microsoft’s new operating system. Following the release preview of Windows 8 a few months ago, some are excited about the new interface, while others feel it was built only to be more convenient for tablet or touchscreen users. If Windows 8 turns out to be another Vista, Linux is expected to eat another inch more of Microsoft’s market share.

Subject: Legitimizing Android ROMs with Over the Air Updates

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

Community developed Android ROMs have come a very long way in a short amount of time. Many people now base their hardware purchase on whether or not they will be stuck running the factory ROM on it; alternatives like CyanogenMod and AOKP are simply better than what the manufacturer shipped the hardware with.

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

The first quarter/half of 2013 will be the most exciting period for Linux Desktop – ever(!?) so far. This has to do mostly because many major distros are going to drop XServer for the shake of Wayland.While GTK3 port in Wayland is expected to be complete and stable by 3.8 around in March, some popular applications like Gimp, Libre Office, Firefox, VLC isn’t sure if they make it.

Subject: Would you pay 40$ a month to play Gnome Mines Online?

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

..43.80$ more correctly, because that’s the cost of 1GB Ram Server in Rackspace :) I was compiling a Rails App on Rackspace and it takes and hour to be completed, so I thought to spend some time and money doing stupid things. I deployed an Ubuntu 12.04, I installed GTK with Broadway support and I used a spare domain name. All these just play Gnome Mines (gnomines) Online :)

I am pleased to announce that Descent|OS 3 is officially available for download. It is 32-bit only for now, but the PAE kernel is supported after install. In terms of cosmetics, Qt now looks right, and all the packages have been updated. The MATE desktop has been great to work with, and it is stable. It uses the 3.2 series kernel, and is based on Ubuntu 12.04. All the packages have been updated since the release candidate, and it behaves just the way I want it to. I have included a Beginner's Guide for new people to learn how to use Synaptic and the custom keyboard shortcuts.

Subject: This week at LWN: Mobile patent wars: Google goes on the attack

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

Whenever one looks at the mobile patent wars, it is natural to conclude that everybody is suing everybody else. Thus far, though, that has not actually been true. Google has been on the receiving end of a number of lawsuits, either directly or indirectly via attacks on manufacturers shipping Android devices, but Google has not, itself, launched patent attacks against others. That situation has just changed, though, with the report that Google has filed a case against Apple with the US International Trade Commission.
