Subject: Who is Randa for?

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

The Randa sprint starts on September 21st. The fundraising drive has just a few days remaining. Randa is important to the KDE Community, which includes everyone who contributes, participates, supports and, most importantly, uses KDE software. Two key KDE developers—Aaron Seigo and Martin Gräßlin—have shared insights about Randa. The value that KDE software delivers to millions of desktops all over the world is mind-boggling; made more so because the cost to users is zero. This is possible because the KDE Community thrives by giving, not taking. It is the epitome of Free and Open Source software. Many people donating small amounts will make a big difference. As part of the KDE Community, would you please consider donating?A few days ago, there was a Dot story about twin brothers from Greece who will be part of Randa for the first time. In that story, Giorgos wrote about what Randa means for him personally and mentioned being inspired by his brother to be part of KDE. Below is what Antonis wrote about Randa.

Subject: OpenSuSE 12.2 GNOME: a step ahead

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

None of my previous meetings with different OpenSuSE products finished well. Although I liked OpenSuSE 11.4 KDE more than OpenSuSE 11.4 GNOME, I still was not too happy with it. OpenSuSE 12.1 Li-f-e, which I reviewed few days ago, did not change my opinion in that area. In the meantime, I decided to give OpenSuSE 12.2 a go.

Subject: Open-Source Software Licenses

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

To some people’s surprise, even open-source software has a license attached to it. And with that license comes a description and agreement for what can and can’t be done with the source code of any particular product or service. What exact license the specific open-source software lies under is generally up to the developer(s) and/or current maintainers of the original code.

Subject: Multi-Tasking in Ubuntu

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

Ubuntu 12.04 includes a desktop interface that is a strong departure from previous versions. One of the most striking differences upon logging into the system is the launcher. The launcher is a vertical bar that, by default, resides along the left side of the screen. It is similar to the dock in Mac OS X and aims to make your user experience more efficient and intuitive.

Subject: What is the best backup tool for 2012? What else, Virtual Box!

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

Nowadays virtualization is for anyone and virtual machines run smoothly in every new hardware. However people seem to avoid it and there is an explanation. The “complicated” interfaces and the ignorance of the use-cases of virtualization. The possibilities of virtualization are endless and just one of them is to backup our files, databases and whatever else.

Subject: Linux and Windows: Peaceful Coexistence

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

One of the stumbling blocks in migrating to the Linux desktop is the mistaken view that you can't take it with you. Your data must remain captive to the Microsoft operating system. Not true at all. A related misconception that stalls many Windows users from adopting the Linux OS is the belief that when you buy a new computer or install Linux to an existing computer, you must give up one operating system for the other.
