Subject: Mozilla Firefox turns 8

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

From the 'Open Source Goodness' files:I remember well when I wrote about Firefox 1.0, which was officially released on November 9th, 2004. It was a very different time - and it was 8 years ago.

Subject: Android and Linux on a dual-booting tablet for $100

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

It likely won’t be as sleek or fast as a Nexus 7 or Nexus 10, but a new tablet running both Android and Linux is in the works for open source enthusiasts and lovers of low-budget devices.PengPod tablets, made by a company called Peacock Imports, will dual-boot Android 4.0 and a version of Linux with the KDE Plasma Active interface for touch screens. But in order to reserve a tablet for yourself, you’ll have to contribute to the company’s crowdfunding project on Indiegogo and hope enough money is raised to begin production.

Subject: Nexus 4—two-thirds of a great phone

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

Another day, another Nexus phone to add to Google's list of stock handsets not tainted by gratuitous add-ons, carrier bloatware, and OEM skins. For diehard Android users, a Nexus phone is usually the way to go when picking a handset: Nexus-branded devices are the first to get updated with every new version of Android, at least until the hardware inside the device becomes obsolete. The Nexus 4, though, is a special case. It has a near-twin in the non-Nexus LG Optimus G. This brother-from-another-mother was released not too long ago and boasts the same innards as the Nexus 4 as well as most of the same functionality. For power-hungry Android users, choosing between the two is a question of whether they should adopt the Nexus 4 for its Googlefication or stick with its counterpart for LG's value-added features.

Subject: Pfizer caught

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

Pfizer's legal monopoly on one of its top-selling drugs just got shredded in Canada. The Canadian Supreme Court has ruled 7-0 the company should have its patent taken away because the drug company attempted to "game" the system, grabbing a patent without disclosing what their invention really was.Pfizer was able to acquire its Canadian patent without naming the compound required to make Viagra, namely, sildenafil citrate. The Canadian patent system, like all patent systems, is a kind of bargain between patentees, who are given a limited monopoly on a particular product or process, and the public, which is supposed to benefit from the disclosure of a new invention, the justices noted in their opinion.

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

The latest generation of svelte Ultrabooks paints a potent picture of performance and portability. Although Windows users have a wide assortment from which to choose, Linux enthusiasts have largely been left out of the party. There aren't many options for Linux users who want an Ultrabook that comes preloaded with their favorite distro. But the recently-introduced ZaReason UltraLap 430 aims to change that, pairing penguin power with the popular Ultrabook form factor.

Subject: Experimentation vs. Tradition: The Future of Innovation on the Linux Desktop

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

Assuming that the current situation continues, the future of innovation on the Linux desktop does not look promising. By their nature, the traditional desktops constrict the amount of innovation they are likely to provide. By contrast, the experimental desktops share design assumptions that inhibit their abilities to innovate in ways that benefit users. Neither alternative is desirable.

Subject: Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Ubuntu 12.10

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

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on an Ubuntu 12.10 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support. PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. I use PHP-FPM in this tutorial instead of Lighttpd's spawn-fcgi.

Subject: This week at LWN: Fedora and LVM

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

Those following the progress of the Fedora 18 development cycle cannot have failed to notice that the rework of Anaconda, the distribution's installer, is not going as smoothly as one might have liked. Complaints are common, and there is a real risk that installer problems will end up being what users remember about this release. Given that, it may seem surprising that the Fedora developers intend to change one of the fundamental decisions made by the developers of the new installer.

Subject: Top 5 Programming Tools for Kids

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

Computer classes in the UK have been constrained by the national curriculum for ICT, with students having to limit their computing activities to learning applications such as Word and PowerPoint, and using the internet to help with their school work. However, learning how to use Microsoft Office is often of little or no interest to students. Students are motivated by interactive activities such as programming, as they like to make things to find out how they work.

It would be difficult to overstate the popularity of the tiny Raspberry Pi computer that launched earlier this year, but it's just one example of a rapidly growing class of small, inexpensive, Linux-powered devices, as I've already noted on several occasions before.The Cubieboard and the UG802 are two of the more recent examples to appear, even as the Raspberry Pi itself has been continually improved, but since then another came to light: the A13-OLinuXino.
