Reddit: What is the deal?

Monday 30th of October 2017 01:13:10 PM

Why does anyone make the move to GNU/Linux when they still want to use proprietary software?

What is your point? Do you not feel you are keeping the shackles on? Why not help build or help fund Free alternatives?

TuxMachines: GNU/Linux Servers: IBM and Red Hat

Monday 30th of October 2017 11:30:54 AM
  • IBM Wheels And Deals For Power Linux, But Where Is IBM i?

    The whole point of the convergence of the RS/6000 and the AS/400 families of systems – including pSeries and iSeries and System p and System i – was not only to get a common, converged hardware platform that made IBM’s life easier, but to also – or so we have always believed – give a consistent deal to customers using AIX or OS/400-i5/OS-IBM i.

    “A foolish consistency is,” as Ralph Waldo Emerson put it, “the hobgoblin of little minds.” While that may be true, a smart consistency is the Spider-Man of great minds. Or at least those that think alike. Like we all do out here in IBM i Land.

    IBM i customers need a deal, something to get them excited about modernizing their platforms and moving ahead.

TuxMachines: Ubuntu 17.10 - on the GNOME again

Monday 30th of October 2017 10:05:32 AM

Ubuntu is one of the world's most popular Linux distributions. The distribution is available in several flavours, the two most widely recognized being the Desktop and Server editions. The release of Ubuntu 17.10 introduces a number of important changes, the most visible ones mostly affecting the Desktop edition which I will focus on in this review. As 17.10 is an interim release rather than a long term support release, it will received security updates for just nine months.

One technical change in version 17.10 is the phasing out of 32-bit builds of the Desktop edition, though the Server edition is still available in 32-bit and 64-bit builds for the x86 architecture. Another significant change is the Ubuntu distribution has swapped out its in-house Unity desktop and replaced it with a customized version of the GNOME Shell desktop. Unity is still available in Ubuntu's software repositories if we wish to install it later.

I opted to download the Desktop edition of Ubuntu 17.10. The ISO for this edition is 1.4GB in size and booting from this media brings up a graphical window where we are asked if we would like to try Ubuntu's live desktop mode or launch the system installer. This screen also lets us select the system's language with the default being English.
