TuxMachines: Why does the world still need the Mozilla Foundation?

Monday 5th of January 2015 10:49:38 AM

With its Firefox browser rapidly losing share, and its financial ties to Google finished, the Mozilla Foundation finds itself facing the most pivotal moment in its history since its founding more than a decade ago.

“We’re utterly confident in our stability and viability going forward,” Mozilla chairwoman Mitchell Baker said in a recent interview with Stephen Shankland of Cnet.

But just because the foundation can continue, does that mean it should?

I think there is still an essential role on the web for a non-profit organization that can develop services that may not generate big profits, but where it would be valuable to have a more neutral player.

But at the same time, at this moment, it’s difficult to say what Mozilla is doing that is so essential to the world.

Reddit: Desperately seeking laptop for Linux

Monday 5th of January 2015 10:30:18 AM

I think I'm getting depressed, all of these great companies that sell laptops for linux are merely reselling hardware made out of taiwan. That goes for System76/Zareason and Think Penguin.

I'm looking for a good laptop that has an intel cpu and intel graphics card. I was looking at some thinkpads but I wanted to buy a laptop from someone who would kick up some money to fsf/gnu/etc. Help me plz.

Phoronix: GCC Soars Past 14.5 Million Lines Of Code & I'm Real Excited For GCC 5

Monday 5th of January 2015 10:20:00 AM
If you thought LLVM/Clang with just under four million lines was a huge code-base for a compiler as the entire Linux kernel is over 19 million lines, just wait until you see the current size of GCC...

Reddit: How to get the MTP library to mount a Zune media player

Monday 5th of January 2015 05:04:52 AM

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kbhomes/libmtp-zune/master/src/.mtpz-data

Take the above file, and paste it into "~/.mtpz-data". This is the handshake that the computer needs to send to the Zune before files can be transferred to it. Once it is mounted, you can copy files to it just like any regular drive, at about 10MB/s (at least for the original white Zune 30).

It is not as seamless as transferring via the Windows-only Zune Software, and I have never been able to get playlists to work in Linux, but transferring music to it works just fine and it gets detected along with the proper album art if it's hardcoded into the file (I think, it could require a separate file, though).

It's been a while, so I don't remember if you can copy files to the "Podcasts" section of the device and take advantage of the per-file playback position saving.

Only thing I can confirm is that MP3 files can be copied, and are detected under the proper album and artist. After all, this is infinitely more than you can do with the newer iPods in terms of music transfer.

Reddit: First Linux Build

Monday 5th of January 2015 02:41:48 AM

Hi guys. My current computer doesn't work at all with Linux, so I figured I'd build something. I'm brand new to Linux, so I have no idea what to do for parts. I also don't know what to do for the distro. I can't stand Ubuntu. So what are some good parts and a noob friendly distro?
