Subject: Learning from Diaspora

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

As the remaining founders of Diaspora hand the project over to the community, Glyn Moody asks what lessons we can learn from the success and failure of a free software project and considers the importance of thinking about what happens next.

Subject: A Call for Common Sense

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

For years now, there has been a lot of talk about the "fractured" Linux Desktop environment. It's an easy argument to make, given the number of distros, desktop choices the user has and the number of apps that may perform the same function. The argument has been made so many times over the years that it's not necessary for citation. If you feel it is, Google is your friend....knock yourself out.

Subject: Microsoft updates privacy policy to match Google's

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

Microsoft this week updated its services agreement with subtle, yet potentially significant changes to its policy on privacy and dispute settlement. The company notified users of the changes in an e-mail sent Friday, informing them that the new Terms of Service would go into effect on October 19th. Apparently taking its cue from Google, Microsoft's revised policy allows the company to access and display user content across all of its cloud properties..

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

Epiphany, or the Web if you like, is one of those core Gnome applications that developers should start focusing on with all their power. It is an important but left behind part of the whole Gnome experience.A step towards the evolution of the Web was achieved through the collaboration of Igalia hackers and Gnome design team. The new feature is called overview and basically allows the speed dial of your favorite websites!

Subject: ExTiX-the ultimate Linux distribution?

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

What you're about to read is a short and pretty objective review of a lesser known Linux distribution: ExTiX. The logic why we do this from time to time is simple: so you can be empowered with knowledge about less popular distributions and maybe find the one that's right up your alley. Top distros have lots of reviews, lots of contributors, and so on.

Here's some interesting test results recently uploaded to OpenBenchmarking.org that compares the performance of ARM Cortex A8 and Cortex A9 cores running at 1.0GHz against an Intel Atom N450. All three systems running at 1.0GHz were also running Gentoo Linux. Clock-for-clock, can the latest-generation ARM Cortex-A9 take out the Intel Atom? For the most part, yes.

While most of the Linux desktop bickering these days come down to Ubuntu's Unity and GNOME 3.x Shell, KDE 4.x used to have its fair share of critics. Most KDE users are satisfied with the latest 4.x software compilations, but the KDE 3.5 packages continue to be maintained through the Trinity Desktop fork...

Linux kernel big daddy Linus Torvalds and fellow developer Alan Cox have lashed out at claims that the culture surrounding the operating system's core prevented it from conquering the consumer PC market. The pair also slapped down folks working on the GNOME user interface - a popular package among desktop Linux users - and accused the team of blaming others for GNOME's failings.

Subject: Running New Shopware Version 4.0.x On Nginx (LEMP) On Ubuntu 12.04

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

This tutorial shows how you can install and run the new Shopware version 4.0.x on an Ubuntu 12.04 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). Shopware is a feature-rich ecommerce platform; I will use the Community Edition here which is free. nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.

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

Good news for Linux users, NVIDIA is finally working on a new vesion of its' non-free drivers for Linux which will bring support for its infamous Optimus technology. This technology is used in laptops to save battery life as it automatically switches the power of the GPU off when it is not needed and switching it on when needed again. Linux users were not able to take advantage of this technology due to lack of support by NVIDIA.

Well, it looks like from Ubuntu 12.10, due in late October, Ubiquity will have support for full disk encryption and LVM. The test build that I installed in a virtual machine shows that the implementation is still in the early stages, but it also shows how easy it will be to configure both features when the final release hits the digital shelves.
