Subject: TLWIR 46: Limerick Loves LibreOffice

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

Limerick, Ireland has embraced Free Software in a move that demonstrates a continue global shift away from vendor lock-in. Writing a lot has forced me to learn how to write efficiently. Again, Free Software came to the rescue in the form of Gedit and Notepad++ tabs.

Subject: Virtualization With KVM On A Fedora 17 Server

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

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on a Fedora 17 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM). KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and makes use of hardware virtualization, i.e., you need a CPU that supports hardware virtualization, e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V.

Subject: How Nokia managed to drive its in-house Linux train off the rails

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

Nokia's strategy to revive its fortunes with its home-grown Linux was derailed by academic theory, bureaucratic in-fighting and a misguided partnership with Intel, a new report reveals. Finnish publication Taskmuro has published an extensive history of the Meego project which contains a mixture of old and new: some information that's familiar - and some intriguing new details. The report confirms what we know: that Nokia had developed a competitive successor to its ageing Symbian platform years before Apple's iPhone appeared - but fluffed the execution so badly, it would eventually junk almost all of its internal platform software development.

A hole in Firefox 16 makes it possible for a malicious site to access a user's browsing history, Mozilla security chief Michael Coates revealed in a blog yesterday. Mozilla 16 was released on Tuesday but pulled a day later because of the vulnerability which would allow a hacker to suck out URLs from the browser history of a visitor of a malicious page.

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

As the latest AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU benchmarks under Linux, here's a quick look at the impact that Turbo Core Technology has under Linux. AMD Turbo Core is the technology that's been around for about two years going back to the AMD Phenom II CPUs that automatically shift the CPU frequency to a higher state when greater performance is desirable. Similar to Intel's Turbo Boost, it's basically the reverse of Cool 'n' Quiet and Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology.

Subject: Do it “on the Internet,” get a patent, sue an industry—it still works

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

The slide that defense lawyers showed to the jury read: “This isn’t new.” In a patent case, it could have been a smoking gun—after all, it was written by the inventors themselves. They were describing their business, Nexchange, to a San Francisco conference back in 2000; it was three years before they received their first patent and turned their focus to litigation. But hours later, inventor Daniel “Del” Ross Jr. was on the stand, and he seemed none too concerned that the crux of his idea was old—if not ancient. He had a patent, twice reviewed by the US Patent Office, and a simple story to tell: “The big difference is, we invented this for the Internet,” he told the jury.
