Reddit: An appeal to the technically literate - help /r/Rad_Decentralization make sense of up and coming tech!
So as this guy correctly points out, that sub is mainly populated by politically progressive but technically not-very-savvy folk. I thought that the peeps here at /r/linux may be able to provide some critical commentary on all the various projects that come up and which are posted to /r/Rad_Decentralization. After all, we share a common philosophy and a desire to see subversive yet socially-minded projects see the day of light.
Thanks!submitted by monkeyseemonkeydoodo

I have been watching the evolution of the Ubuntu Software Center for quite a while now. I had doubts about its interface and its speed, but I liked the fact that it offered an easy, down-to-earth interface that allowed users to install software easily.
However, I have to say that the way the Ubuntu Software Center has evolved is worrying me -- a lot.
A friend of mine and I couldn't find any good bash script for outputting the contents of a document onto hastebin. So we decided to make one. This script has greatly improved my productivity when sharing code amongst friends.
Features: - outputs the content of multiple documents into multiple hastebin-links - adds the link immediately to your clipboard (can be turned off) - pastes the raw link without the code syntax coloring
Usage: ./haste.sh filename(as many as you want) output -> hastebin link copying to clipboardsubmitted by Smegzar

Folder View panel popups are list views again
In later versions of Plasma 4, the Folder View widget adopted a special appearance when placed in a panel: It would arrange folder contents in a simple list instead of the usual icon grid. Folder View had to be rewritten completely for Plasma 5, and while there were various improvements along the way, the list view mode unfortunately went missing. Until now - on popular request, this feature will make a return soon in Plasma 5.4:

Krita's Fundraising Campaign Was a Success, It Will Become Faster Than Photoshop
Exactly a month ago, on May 4, we reported that the Krita developers decided to do another Kickstarter campaign, after last year's successful one, this time to rise €20,000 ($22,000) for making the next version of the application faster the Photoshop.
A few hours ago, Krita's fundraising campaign was successfully completed, raising a little over €30,000 ($34,000), which means that the developers will concentrate all of their efforts in making the open source digital painting app much faster than Photoshop.
We’ve done it!
We ended with €30,520 on kickstarter and €3108 through paypal — making for a grand total of €33,628, and that means LOD, Animation and nine stretch goal. We’re so happy. It’s really an amazing result. So, thanks and hugs to all our supporters! And we promise to make Krita better and better — and better!
Weekly Update: Integrate Cantor with LabPlot
This is a weekly update on my GSOC 2015 Project Integrate Cantor with LabPlot. As I mentioned in my last post that I will be starting my work with integration of UI of Cantor inside LabPlot. I would like to inform my fellow developers that I have integrated the UI successfully. I present the screenshots hereafter.
The Fedora 22 Linux operating system was released last week, and it is our great pleasure to introduce you guys today to its Server edition, which brings some awesome new features, and numerous under-the-hood improvements.
I need something that has 2 USB 3 or 2 gigabit Ethernet ports. I'm setting up a camera streaming server and want to tuck it away in the office right by the router so being small is important. Laptop would work but would rather just go headless minipc. I also need some storage space so that I can stream to files as well as network.
Seems easy enough except I also want it to be super cheap. Like $250 or less.
This is where I'm running into trouble. Seems I could build a decent minipc for 400ish, but I am deploying this in multiple places so I'll have to get more than one so I want to keep it cheap.submitted by cod3r__

Fedora Project was extremely proud to announce the release of the highly anticipated Fedora 22 Linux operating system, including all of its flavors, last week, on May 26, 2015.
The state of affairs of enterprise IT is changing quickly. Open source will become a much higher percentage of every IT organization’s environment, given its advantages in terms of cost, control, and innovation. Likewise, open source skills will soon become a critical requirement, both for using open source wisely, but also in attracting the kind of talent necessary to compete in a Third Platform world.
"Automakers are not terribly happy with the idea of a single vendor's proprietary platform dominating what many believe will be a huge commercial opportunity," said tech analyst Charles King. "Automotive Grade Linux offers them a workable, flexible alternative. That is great for the industry as a whole, and should also inspire healthy competition that will result in benefits for consumers."
