So I just tried compiling a custom kernel, (3.15.1) and when I went through the 'make menuconfig' step, just about every other option in the menuconfig had a (NEW) label right after it. Literally, the menuconfig is FILLED with "(NEW)" things.
Are these things that have really been recently added in the new 3.15 release? or have they simply been updated a bit? How long does the (NEW) tag stay on these options?
thanks in advance!submitted by Chickengod37

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to get Unicode to work properly in foobar2000 that I am running in Wine? All characters display properly in Linux using a variety of fonts, but the magic that goes on to make that happen does not translate to foobar. So far the best I've found is using Arial Unicode MS.
I'm running Wine 1.7.19 on Fedora 20.

I asked this over on r/linuxquestions, but no one seemed to have any suggestions, so I am asking the larger Linux community on Reddit.submitted by theWorldontheRim
Jack Wallen digs into the upcoming Samsung Tizen release to uncover how the mobile giant managed to beat Canonical to the Linux-phone punch.
There I was, 4 years ago (this past January) at CampKDE in San Diego, giving a talk on data privacy, warning the audience about the risks to their privacy from cloud vendors – in particular, Dropbox. So, build it yourself they said. Sure, I’ve built things in the past, so sure, I’ll do it. And there is where I started my odyssey, first, to protect myself, my friends and my colleagues from the snooping of governments, and other bad guys, and later – as I saw the worldwide interest grow – to build a real and successful project.
I had to decide a few things before I got started of course, including what it is I wanted ownCloud to do, what development platform to use, how I wanted to structure ownCloud, and of course, to name it ownCloud.
Once upon a time SimplyMEPIS, Mandrake Linux, and Lindows were popular and generated a lot of attention. Where are they now?
Android: Mozilla is best known for its web browser, but the company also produces Firefox OS for a limited number of handsets. With a little sideways thinking, though, you can try some of its apps in Android.
Much like Google Chrome, Firefox supports webapps—the OS and apps are built with the same technology—and this is how you can bring Firefox OS to Android. Apps work like browser extensions, so they take up very little room making them ideal for older devices or those with limited storage. Download a copy of Firefox for Android from the Google Play Store, or update your existing copy to 29 or above.
Fire up Firefox and visit the Firefox Marketplace, the Firefox version of Google Play or the Chrome Web Store. Take a browse through the Marketplace and tap an app that takes your fancy. Just as with regular Android apps, Firefox OS apps let you know about the permissions they need, and you have to accept this before you install anything.
Hey everyone. I've used Linux distros before and I really love them, but I'm not a programmer. I want to learn though. What is the best way to start coding for someone who doesn't do it for a career, and what are the best languages to learn in order to customize and use Linux effectively. I am planning on using Arch Linux...submitted by song_of_stormz
