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

Dot Categories: Community and EventsJust as another year is passing by and summer is on its way, KDE Brazil gathered and fled south, just like migratory birds. Dragons are like birds, you know? Konqi the KDE Dragon is a little bigger than a bird, but he still has wings. We all had a common destination in this trip, the beautiful Itaipu, the biggest water-powered power plant in the Americas. (It used to be the biggest in the world, but a bigger one was built in Asia last year.)

Subject: TLWIR 48: Revealing the Hidden Biases Against Free Software

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

Let’s face it: we all have biases. I readily admit that I have a very clear bias in favor of Free Software. There is no human being that is truly objective and neutral. However, in the modern world of technology blogging, these biases are often cleverly hidden. “Studies” are released without revealing the true motivations behind those that conducted the study. In The Linux Week in Review 48, I will take a closer look at this growing problem.

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

This tutorial shows how you can install and run a Question2Answer web site on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 12.10 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files. Question2Answer is a free and open source platform for Q&A sites.

Subject: Will ARM become more powerful than Intel by using less power? (interview)

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

In the microprocessor wars, ARM and its many partner allies have always had the most units sold in the market. But Intel, which can sell chips for $100 or more, has always had the lion’s share of the profits in a $30 billion-plus industry. With the growing popularity of smartphones and tablets, ARM is a rising star while Intel’s core PC market is weakening. And this week, Intel rival Advanced Micro Devices announced it would move beyond Intel-compatible chips to making ones based on ARM designs. [i](Not a Linux story, but pertinent--ed.)[/i]

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

Mutter and Gnome Shell 3.8 will be port to use latest input X.org extensions XI2! Porting Mutter to XI2 is the prerequisite for enabling multitouch and gesture support in gnome-shell. It is also needed for triggering the message tray by downwards pressure, as it was designed to do.It is uncertain if multitouch and gesture support will arrive in this cycle but the first step is done!

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

In part 1 we talked with a developer in the waning days of a successful Kickstarter campaign. Project Eternity raised almost $4 million from Kickstarter alone. In part 2, we talked with Chris Keenan from inXile Entertainment about their successfully funded sequel, Wasteland 2. Both of these games have shown that there is a strong desire from the gaming community for unique, innovative and ‘risky’ games. Continuing on with the series, today we talk with a game developer who has recently has had their game “Greenlit“. Simon Dean from Games Foundry chatted with me about Folk Tale, a self proclaimed “City Builder, God, RTS, Adventure Game.”
