Subject: Microsoft's New Cloud and Mobile Approach Uses Same Old Lock-in Strategy

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

At a glance, the whole Windows 8 cloud-mobile strategy seems like a radical new approach for Microsoft, but when you dig a little deeper, it's really just the same all-Microsoft lock-in strategy it's been using for years. The big difference though is Microsoft is not alone on the playing field anymore and users can choose their devices.

So I set out today to rediscover Diaspora, the open social network that was once a Kickstarter phenomenon. While I didn’t spend much time there, I did stumble across something relatively new that I had not yet heard of. UBUNTU.AUDIOCA.ST.

Subject: One Code Base, Multiple Form Factors

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

Yesterday we pushed a small but significant clean-up to a feature set we've been working on for a couple of years now which is perhaps one of the more interesting things we're doing in Plasma: the idea of "one code base, multiple form factors." The idea is that whether your application is running as a widget on the desktop, docked in a panel, running full screen as part of a mediacenter, running in a touch based environment or as a regular ol' app-in-a-window, much of the code can be shared. We often put the non-graphical bits into shared libraries, and traditional we've built multiple front ends that are optimized for different form factors and input methods which use these libraries.

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

OCRFeeder is a document layout analysis and optical character recognition application. It is a type of software that leaves much to be desired on the Linux desktop. OCR software is a companion tool to scanning a document. The scanner software creates a photo-like image of the scanned document. The OCR component lets you edit the text and then export the edited version into a word processor or page-design program.

Subject: Windows 8, the post-PC world, and Linux: Microsoft will prevail

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

First, let's address the idea that the Linux desktop's time is now. It's an easy kill, honestly—despite the ever-improving functionality of distributions such as Ubuntu, they hardly show up as a blip in global operating system market share statistics. Linux accounts for just 1.1 percent of the desktop operating systems in the world, based on statistics from NetMarketshare. By comparison, Windows systems own 91 percent of the market worldwide; OS X has 7 percent. Now, a big chunk of that Windows market share—anywhere from a third to almost half—is Windows XP. And, the reasoning goes, with XP now at the end of its support life, those XP users have to go somewhere. Why not to Linux?

Subject: Managing VMs with the Virtual Machine Manager

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

With the introduction of virtualization, physical hosts have been freed from the bounds of single-instance operating systems. We efficiently multiplex our hosts with multiple operating systems as virtual machines (VMs). But, the density of operating systems on a host simply increases the management requirements. One solution for this management problem is the Virtual Machine Manager, or virt-manager. This article explores the use of virt-manager, illustrates its capabilities on modest hardware, and shows how to manage and monitor live VM performance.
