We do know open source giant Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) raised $28.9 million in equity. The company disclosed the news in a securities filing today.
Parking app Sweetch has open-sourced its code this morning in an effort to solve the parking crisis in San Francisco. The free, open-source project, called Freetch is open to any developer willing to work on solving parking problems for the city.
City Attorney Dennis Herrera called out Sweetch and other parking apps earlier this week in a cease-and-desist letter it sent to MonkeyParking. The letter specifically warned Sweetch and ParkModo, both of which the city believes “…similarly violate local and state law with mobile app-enabled schemes intended to illegally monetize public parking spaces.”
Since the perfect storm of XP support ending and StreamOS, /r/linux has basically turned into a complete cesspit. All I see now are "Halp! How do I partitions?!" and similar crap all over the front page. The karmawhores and help vampires have taken over.
So where do you guys go for news and discussion now? We used to get professionals from the industry commenting regularly, and insightful discussion, with the odd bit of flamebait.submitted by crshbndct

After two weeks and almost 1400 casted votes we’re finally ready to announce the 3 winning wallpaper submissions:
Today we are releasing a new version of KDE Connect for Android phones and the Plasma desktop. This shiny new release includes some nice features contributed by great people in the KDE Community (and outside it). You guys are awesome!
The first feature I want to show you was contributed by Ahmed Ibrahim, and allows you to use your phone screen as a touchpad for your computer. Do you have a mediacenter or another setup where you don’t want to have a mouse and a keyboard always attached? With KDE Connect we will make you able to use your phone as a wireless input device!
It's not really all that bad, because I like linux quite a bit, but when I was installing linux - Ubuntu distro- i though i was doing a partition, and would have both OS's on my machine.... well that's not the case. Is there a way for me to get Windows back on my machine again? I would love to have both if that is an option, but if not i can re-install linux, this time WITH a partition.submitted by monkeydonut13

I'm quite ignorant about linux so sorry if i ask something really stupid in advance.
I use mainly my pc for internet (no problem here), office work (already use open office so no problem here either) and the thing that creates problems which is gaming.
A few questions to you:
1) Which are (if they actually exist) the main differences between linux and windows i would struggle with in everyday use of pc? I consider myself decent with computer but absolutely not an expert.
2) I know steamOS (which will be linux based) is coming, does that mean all games available today in windows will be available for that system?
3) At the moment which linux is better for gaming (if there is any difference)?
4) Are there still problems for graphic cards drivers? I heard AMD/ATI are better for linux, is it true?submitted by Yamone

After hearing so much good comments about VIM, and me still being quite new to the linux- scene. How do you really start learn and become a "Master of Vim"? Are there any guides you would recommend? I also want to use VIM as a future IDE for Python development.
Coming from basic VI and NANO usage, my work invovles VI on a daily basis it feels like this is a step to explore. But most guides out there just makes me realise how big VIM really is with the support for plugins etc.submitted by Drullputt

After earlier this week posting some fresh NVIDIA VDPAU video playback performance tests, here is some testing of the open-source AMD Radeon driver with R600 and RadeonSI Gallium3D drivers while using the VDPAU state tracker for open-source, accelerated video playback using the graphics cards' UVD engine.
If this needs to be posted elsewhere (i.e. /r/linuxquestions), please let me know and I'll be happy to do so. I thought I'd try here first.
I very recently switched to i3 to try it out, and am liking it so far. I am trying to keep it so that each workspace/virtual desktop is doing something specific, to keep myself organised. One workspace for my browser, one for Steam, one for VLC - you get the idea.
I am reserving my first workspace for system monitoring tools, purely command-line if possible. So far I have htop and ncdu running permanently, giving me a nice overview of system performance and disk space, respectively. I'm not sure where to go from here, although I was considering nethogs for bandwidth monitoring. Does anyone have any suggestions for further tools that may be of interest to me? Any input would be greatly appreciated!submitted by Yamogi

For those curious about the performance of LLVM Clang in its current development form when testing the common code generation options for optimizing the performance (and in some cases size) of the resulting binaries, here's some fresh compiler benchmarks.
Just as some extra benchmarks for the weekend while finishing out the month, I ran some new benchmarks comparing common optimization levels for LLVM/Clang with the latest 3.5 development code as of earlier this month. The configurations tested for this article included.
