Subject: DragonFlyBSD 3.2.1 vs. Ubuntu Linux Performance

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

At the beginning of this month there was the release of DragonFlyBSD 3.2.1 that claimed a battle for speed against Linux with major improvements for the multi-threaded application performance against Linux. PostgreSQL was the only benchmark cited by the DragonFly camp with the new performance results, so a couple Phoronix tests were carried out.

Subject: The Perfect Desktop - Kubuntu 12.10

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

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Kubuntu 12.10 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge. Kubuntu uses the KDE desktop environment.

Subject: What's Exciting About FreeBSD 9.1: Intel KMS

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

While FreeBSD 9.1 is running behind schedule, one of the exciting additions to this forthcoming BSD operating system is finally debuting Intel kernel mode-setting on FreeBSD support. The most exciting feature in this release is undoubtedly the availability of Kernel Modesetting and new drivers for intel chipsets. The drivers are not perfectly up-to-date (xf86-video-intel is at 2.17 and mesa is at 7.11) but it is a significant improvement over what was previously available (2.7 and 7.6, respectively).

A few months ago, I joined Red Hat as a marketing apprentice (intern) in Paris, France—where I am also continuing my studies at France Business School—and it became clear to me that my vision of what open source is and what[he]nbsp[/he]it means to be part of the community has changed. This evolution has significantly altered the way I am participating in projects and communiticating with peers.

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

A recently introduced systemd enhancement allows programs to add a unique identifier to log messages sent to systemd's Journal, which lets it retrieve extra information about the logged event from a message catalogue. Developers could, for example, add some further details and internet links concerning an error message to the information in the catalogue; the information could also explain the log data in a user's local language if a suitable translation exists.

It's a general matter of course in any given year that as Thanksgiving draws ever closer, more than a few Linux bloggers begin to wax sentimental about their favorite operating system, often recounting all the many reasons they're thankful it exists. It is the start of the season of thankfulness, after all. This year, the usual pattern doesn't seem to have happened.
