Subject: Canonical's next moves could repaint the Linux landscape

Canonical is planning on three major additions to the Linux-verse that could easily be a complete reversal of fortune (to the tune of the late Steve Jobs miraculously re-joining Apple).

Subject: Report: Aura Window Manager, I'm confused.

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

A while back when messing with the chromium OS development branch on my nettop i stumbled upon Aura, a Window manager for the Chromium "desktop". I put it down to Google doing their usual "trow the kitchen sink at developers and see what sticks" approach to things and left it at that. Much to my surprise i saw that Google where planning on pushing this update out to all Chromebooks and that it has already done so with to the beta branch of Chromium OS.

Subject: ROSA Desktop 2012 beta review

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

ROSA Desktop is a Linux distribution derived from Mandriva Desktop and developed by ROSA, a technology outfit based in Moscow, The Russian Federation. ROSA Desktop 2012 beta is the first pre-release edition of what will become ROSA Desktop 2012. It is supposed to be a Long Term Support (LTS) edition, with a 5-year support period.Given that the status of Mandriva is still a big question mark, it is good to see activity coming from the folks at ROSA. This article is a short review of this beta release. A detailed review will be published when the final edition becomes available.

Subject: This Internet provider pledges to put your privacy first. Always.

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

The Calyx Institute is founded by Nick Merrill after 6 years under an, ultimately, illegal gag order from the FBI. He was the owner of a small ISP and had been issued a "National Security Letter" from the FBI requesting information about one of his customers. The letter also included a gag order threatening him with prison if he did not observe it. Turns out the "NSF" was not issued after a judge had reviewed evidence and the FBI was way beyond the limits the Patriot Act had established. Nick has now made it his mission in life to make user privacy the focus of a new ISP. The Tor Project and others are signed on to change the way we access the internet and telecommunications services with end-to-end encryption. "Calyx will use all legal and technical means available to protect the privacy and integrity of user data," he says.

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

Tethering your DSLR camera to a computer opens a whole new world of possibilities: you can instantly view your shots on a large screen, trigger your camera remotely, practice the art of time-lapse photography, and perform other clever tricks. While commercial tethering software for Windows and Mac OS X often costs serious money, you can enjoy all the advantages of tethered shooting on Linux free of charge courtesy of Entangle. This tethering software lets you control practically all camera settings, trigger the shutter from the computer, view a live preview of a scene, and automatically download captured images to the computer.

Subject: Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS On Ubuntu 11.10

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

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 11.10) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 11.10 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Subject: Why Mosh is better than SSH?

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

Mosh is replacement of SSH for remote connections to Unix/Linux systems. It brings a few noticeable advantages over well known SSH connections. In brief, it’s faster and more responsive, especially on long delay and/or unreliable links. In this article you'll find why it makes sense to use Mosh instead of plain SSH.
