Subject: Scratch, a programming language for kids

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

Scratch is a free educational programming language for kids, available in 50 different languages and runs on just about any modern computer: Linux, Macintosh, or Windows. The new guide book, Super Scratch Programming Adventure!, was authored by The LEAD Project (Learning through Engineering, Art, and Design), in Hong Kong, to make Scratch more accessible to children around the world by teaching them how to use it.

Subject: Arch Linux switches to systemd

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

A new installation image for Arch Linux is now available that sees the distribution's default boot process switch from the previous System V implementation to systemd for booting the live system. Because of the change, initscripts are no longer available on the live system. However, the developers note that they are still installed by default, but this "is likely to change in the near future".

Subject: An outrageously simple note taking android app made even better (part 3)

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

As promised we will improve further the NoteTaking app in this tutorial. We will change the look of the app to have EditText instead of TextView to display notes on main screen. Also clicking on note will open the note for editing and save it as a new note.

Subject: Samsung contributes F2FS NAND filesystem to Linux

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

Samsung has contributed patches to Linux for the F2FS filesystem. F2FS, short for "Flash-Friendly File System", is designed for NAND flash-memory-based devices such as SSD, eMMC and SD cards which have different storage characteristics from hard disks and other rotating media. Implemented as a log structured filesystem, F2FS includes capabilities such as detecting the internal geometry or flash memory management scheme and adjusting its parameters for configuring on-disk layout and selecting allocation and cleaning algorithms.

Subject: Standards and the Status Quo

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

The concept of a standard is something of a paradox: competitors agree that they will all do one thing the same way - something that's ordinarily anathema to government regulators. But that's OK, because by doing so the resulting standard unleashes their ability to innovate in orders of magnitude more ways.

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

It's been a momentous few weeks for FOSS fans, not least because LibreOffice -- one of the most popular exemplars of free and open source software today -- celebrated its second anniversary late last month. Indeed, with 325 active committers over the last 12 months, LibreOffice is now the third-largest free software project listed on Ohloh focused on the development of a desktop application.

Open Recall is a space on The H for those things that are too small to package as news but are worth the linkage. This edition looks at a JVM in CoffeeScript, OpenStreetMaps on Craigslist, Red Hat crop circles, UEFI Secure Boot for smaller distros, HP hiring new WebOS employees and a new release of the PortableApps.com Platform.

If you want a stable Debian based distro capable of running modern software and a very good forum, that the developer actually answers some forum questions and asks for your ideas, give Solus a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Subject: Software patents make front page of New York Times

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

This morning the New York Times published a front-page story on software patents. My wife got to the paper before I did, and as I got coffee she told me the story would make me happy. She also said it was too long for a normal busy person to read in its entirety. It is long, but I am happy to see that the closest thing we have to a national newspaper of record is getting the word out about the dysfunction of the patent system.
