Subject: Linux 3.6 Brings Hybrid Sleep, All Rejoice

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

Linux 3.6 has been officially released, and from most angles it appears to be a lack-luster one, bringing only what Linus calls “solid progress”. Of course like any major kernel release, Kernel 3.6 comes with a bevy of new drivers, optimizations and more. But one features stands out above all the rest, and it’s really a big deal.

Subject: Is Linux market growth stagnated (at least)?

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

This article is meant to provide some food for thought, concerning the (probable) surcease of Linux growth. I am not saying I know something for sure here, I am just having this feeling that 2011 was the best year for the Linux desktop and will try to share a maybe somewhat premature picture, using multiple information sources. Note that when referring to Linux I mean GNU/Linux distributions and not the kernel alone so Android will be considered something different here.

In my previous article, I showed how combining two instructions into one can speed up a very small countdown loop. In this article, I’ll demonstrate how a single non-optimizing compiler option can have an even greater impact on performance.

Subject: Hacking on code and culture: Failure as validated learning

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

Open source is about more than the code, it’s about the culture. The open culture that many open source communities embrace is entrenched in organizations like Code for America. It’s obvious as I sit here during the opening day of the Code for America Summit in San Francisco, CA.

Subject: How to use Inkscape to print 3D

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

Inkscape is a magnificent open source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format. It is used for many purposes like designing icons, textures, cartoons, graphics, etc, but did you know that you can now print what you draw in Inkscape on 3D? Thanks to TinkerCAD you can!

Subject: KDE Celebrates 2012 Google Summer of Code Success

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

Dot Categories: Community and EventsKDE has again taken part in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) as its biggest participating organization. Fifty-nine out of mind-boggling sixty projects have been completed successfully. Lots of new things have been learned, lots of code has been written and there's been plenty of fun. GSoC is over but the code has not gone away and the work is not finished. Over the next months, many of the students will continue to be part of KDE, integrate the code for future releases, improve it, maintain it, become more part of KDE. For now, however, pencils are down and we can congratulate the students. It was a great summer and we enjoyed having you around!

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

The spectre of a new MeeGo phone is beginning to take solid form: a startup resurrecting the OS has received €200 million ($258 million) in funding and its flagship phone is set to be unveiled next month, according to the Wall Street Journal. Companies funding the venture include at least one telecom and a chipset manufacturer, as well as other parties concerned about "recent developments in the smartphone industry" such as the ongoing patent wars.

Subject: TypeScript: First Impressions

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

Today Microsoft announced TypeScript a typed superset of Javascript. This means that existing Javascript code can be gradually modified to add typing information to improve the development experience: both by providing better errors at compile time and by providing code-completion during development. As a language fan, I like the effort, just like I pretty much like most new language efforts aimed at improving developer productivity: from C#, to Rust, to Go, to Dart and to CoffeeScript.

Subject: Ubuntu has a bigger problem than its Amazon blunder

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

All searches performed through the Dash are sent to Amazon and Canonical: "This by itself is a problem because nobody intends to search Amazon for sensitive personal information. For instance, someone might search for a file with a Social Security number or with a specific text string that is in no way intended to be read by anyone else. They're ostensibly searching through their own local file system, after all, and the thought that by default that search string will be sent out to not one, but two, third parties is extremely disturbing."
