TuxMachines: LibreOffice Numbers & Names

Friday 1st of May 2015 07:14:02 PM

LibreOffice started with the 3.3 release; it then added micro releases with a third number next to the first two digits. As time went forward, so did the releases: 3.4.0, 3.4.1, 3.5.0, 3.5.1, onwards to the 3.6 branch, the last one to carry the number 3 as its major release number, and to the 4.0 and the 4.x.x based releases. This summer we will be releasing the 5.0, and you will hear a lot more about the changes and improvements that are being put into it. But when you think about it, we started our version numbering exactly based on the one of OpenOffice.org . In 2010, it meant something technically and something for the community and more broadly the users of OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice. Fast forward to 2015: does anybody really know what a “4.3” release mean? What message does this numbering scheme convey?

TuxMachines: When Official Debian Support Ends, Who Will Save You?

Friday 1st of May 2015 07:05:57 PM

With a new version of Debian recently released, it's an exciting time for users who long for newer applications and cutting-edge features. But for some users, the new release is a cause for concern. A new release means their current installation is reaching the end of its lifecycle, and for one reason or another, they can't make the switch. And, this leaves them at risk from a variety of security risks and crippling bugs, but there is hope in the shape of an independent project.

I have an ethernet port on my computer, but there appears to be a problem with the ALX drivers for it. At least one other user has confirmed this issue.

TuxMachines: Btrfs RAID Testing Begins With Linux 4.0

Friday 1st of May 2015 05:23:04 PM

This time around I'm doing the Btrfs RAID benchmarks on four traditional HDDs (though separately also been working on Linux RAID tests on a 6 SAS drive server). For this testing I picked up for WD Green 1TB 3.5-inch, SATA 6Gb/s, 64MB Cache WD10EZRX drives. At Amazon they cost only $52 USD a piece and should be interesting to test in a four-disk RAID array.

TuxMachines: Linksys WRT1200AC: A fast, full-featured, open-source-friendly router

Friday 1st of May 2015 11:27:01 AM

Sometimes, less is truly more. When it comes to the Linksys WRT1200AC, the little brother to the WRT1900AC router introduced last year, it might be best to say less is just enough.

The 1200AC is a slimmed-down version of the 1900AC, with two fewer antennas and around $100 knocked off the list price. Despite these reductions, it's no less versatile or powerful. All of the good aspects of the 1900AC -- the expandable hardware, the feature-packed firmware, the convenient setup process -- are still here.
