Reddit: Are there any straight 'vanilla' Linux distros?

Saturday 7th of February 2015 09:16:04 AM

I've used Fedora, SUSE, Knoppix, Mandriva, Mint, and quite a few others. I didn't care for Ubuntu or its variants.

As all the distros have their own particular or style, I've often wondered if there is a distro that only uses the straight kernel and wm.

TuxMachines: Can Open-Source Voting Tech Fix The U.S. Elections System?

Saturday 7th of February 2015 08:57:11 AM

“Our nation’s elections systems and technology are woefully antiquated. They are officially obsolete,” says Greg Miller of the TrustTheVote Project, an initiative to make our voting system accurate, verifiable, transparent, and secure. He adds: “It’s crazy that citizens are using twentieth-century technology to talk to government using twentieth-century technology to respond.”

Miller and others are on a mission to change that with an entirely new voting infrastructure built on open-source technology. They say open source, a development model that’s publicly accessible and freely licensed, has the power to upend the entire elections technology market, dislodging incumbent voting machine companies and putting the electorate at the helm.

Reddit: MIPS Creator C120 development board and Debian 7

Reddit: pls halp, grave noob mistake (deleted x11)

Saturday 7th of February 2015 06:21:37 AM

So I'm doing some research that required an old script that uses libx11.a. This isn't included in modern packages I guess (I'm on the second most recent Mint) but I found an old package for my build and like a derpy derp I uninstalled libx11-6 from the terminal. Then, possibly more idiotically, I closed the terminal in a panic halfway through the uninstall. Computer froze shortly after.

I have important research on here, any way I can fix this? Thanks guys.

LXer: Is the iPhone really better than Android phones?

Saturday 7th of February 2015 02:01:32 AM
Remember the days when it was Windows versus OS/2? Or even Windows versus Linux? People would battle each other in endless online threads about who’s platform was the best. The flames would flow as vicious and often inaccurate comments were bandied back and forth between fanboys on both sides.Well now we’ve…er…progressed to a more recent holy war: Android versus iOS.

Another point release to Mesa 10.4 is now available... Cisco Helping Advance Open Source in Networking

Saturday 7th of February 2015 12:11:17 AM

Last week I was in Italia at the Cisco Live! Milano event where I also had the opportunity to speak about OpenDaylight (ODL) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN). What stood out for me the most during my time there was the tremendous progress being made on technologies that are really disrupting the networking space SDN and NFV have been advancing innovation in the networking industry over the past few years, but it’s still early, and not many of the technologies have made it out of the lab and into the networks – until now. I joined developers in the Cisco DevNet Zone to get  a look at the company’s SDN and NFV software and what I saw was a portfolio of applications, mostly based on OpenDaylight, that are advancing the transition to networks managed by software. By far, the high point was the CloudVPN, which is offering open APIs to allow developers to create their own apps, portals, and automation on top of the platform.
