Reddit: Ubuntu users... when did you first start using Ubuntu and do you still use it? If you switched, what did you switch to?

13 hours 8 min ago

I started around July 2006 with Dapper and I've continued to upgrade to newer ones until now. I'm considering switching to Arch but maybe not for a few more months.

Reddit: Soekris: net5501 vs net6501

13 hours 16 min ago

I've had a net5501-60 running OpenBSD as my home router for the past six years or so, but it's been giving me periodic SATA errors over the past couple and am planning to get a new device to replace it.

I see both the net5501 and the net6501 as viable options when I look now. The machine won't be doing any serious heavy lifting aside from passing packets and managing a few networks on its four ports, so I don't need the fastest thing. However, I really am tired of having to unplug and plug the router every few weeks due to the SATA errors and would like to avoid that sort of thing after only so many years this time.

Which would be the better choice for a replacement?

Reddit: So, my goddamn Razer mouse died.

14 hours 5 min ago

Good news everyone! Now I can have a mouse with good drivers.

I've heard that Logitech mice work really great with Linux. I always loved gaming mice and their feel, so I wanted to go with THIS one.

Are there any other good gaming mice out there that are comparable with Linux?

Any tips on what I should by?

Thanks in advance!

For those not familiar with Privacy Indicator, this is an Ubuntu AppIndicator especially created for Unity, which allows you to control various privacy aspects.

Until this release, the indicator could be used to enable / disable Dash online search results and Zeitgeist logging (and also clear the Zeitgeist log), clear recently used files (which show up in the Nautilus or Nemo "Recent" sidebar item for instance) and to show or hide your real name on the Unity panel.

TuxMachines: Following GCC, Clang Looks To Default To C11

14 hours 41 min ago

It looks like LLVM's Clang compiler will be defaulting to using the GNU's C11 standard for its next release.

Earlier this month I wrote about GCC 5 looking to default to GNU11/C11 over GNU89 for its GCC 5 release. That change ended up landing in SVN so the GNU Compiler Collection is finally providing C11 support by default. Last week the LLVM/Clang developers began discussing a similar move.
