2 hours 45 min ago

Reddit: Questions about window managers.

3 hours 26 min ago

Hi all, I program at home for fun and a bit of a challenge. I use BSPWM and I3 on arch, as I find them to be the best WM's and os (damn gentoo and your compiling!) for my needs, but none of them are perfect. Since I've been programming for a while and I'm starting to feel like I'm really confident with my skills I'd like to TRY and make my own WM. I know it's a grueling task, and might well take months to do, but I like a challenge and I'm fed up with WM's. Is there any documentation for wayland/x I can use to make a WM, bar, or desktop things similar to bar and conky?

I'm most confident with Java, and I'm getting pretty confident with C++. Are these suitable? If not what languages should I pursue? At this point in time I've realized that after learning one language learning another is mostly just a matter of syntax, mostly.

In conclusion, tl;dr, I hate WMs and even the ones I love suck, I want my own.

LXer: Iron Man costume made on the shoulders of giants

When Iron Man set foot on stage at the Red Hat Halloween party last year, my jaw dropped. A huge applause erupted. It was like the real Iron Man stepped out of the Hollywood big screen and was right in front of us. I was waiting for it to start flying.

TuxMachines: Has the time come to rebrand open source?

4 hours 45 min ago

I wonder how many other businesses are experiencing the same problem. I'm keen to start a conversation about how others fair when selling FOSS solutions and whether its time to get together again and think again about a re-branding that will have my prospective customers asking, "OK tell us more" rather than "open sounds insecure". To that end I would like to nominate a brand new name that I have seen used in FOSS communities as a suitable candidate... Community Software.

LXer: How to run SQL queries against Apache log files on Linux

5 hours 37 min ago
One of the distinguishing features of Linux is that, under normal circumstances, you should be able to know what is happening and has happened on your system by analyzing one or more system logs. Indeed, system logs are the first resource a system administrator tends to look to while troubleshooting system or application issues.

Three great Android tools for Linux and Windows sysadmin

Systems administration isn't a simple job — and being able to respond to issues quickly is a definite plus. Not long ago, server problems meant receiving a phone alert followed by a trip to the data center to fix whatever was wrong. Today, having full-powered computers such as smartphones or tablets literally in your hand is a tremendous help when doing sysadmin. Load Android with a few key applications and you can remotely monitor servers and services, get alerts and warnings as they occur, and solve problems without any travel at all. Read more

Windows Phone Shrinks In Android-Dominated Europe, As New iPhones Boost iOS’ Share

Spare a thought for Microsoft, a relative newcomer to the mobile making business, after Redmond completed its $7.2BN+ acquisition of former European mobile making powerhouse Nokia earlier this year. If Microsoft was hoping to see quick marketshare wins in Europe once its hands were fully on the levers of production that has not come to pass. The latest 12-week smartphone sales figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, up to this September, indicate that Windows Phone’s already small share of the smartphone market has shrunk in Europe — dropping 0.3 percentage points in aggregate across the top five markets in Europe (the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany).
