Reddit: Ubqiuti Networks still violating the GPL

Wednesday 9th of September 2015 07:05:38 PM

Update in case anyone is interested on

I was applying for a job at this company when I learned about this. They claimed the issue was fixed but request for source to specific binaries went unmet despite efforts made to create an appearance of compliance. Hopefully this is useful to someone searching for updates.

LXer: Google Fiber: Making the Competition Better

Tuesday 8th of September 2015 12:40:18 PM
The bean counters at Time Warner and Comcast lost their friggin’ minds, not just in Kansas City but in Austin as well. Time Warner began rolling out plans that automatically doubled a residential customer’s speeds, with absolutely no cost to the consumer. Not only was Time Warner promising this in Austin, even little Podunk towns like Taylor, fifty miles away, were getting the deal.

Reddit: Has there been a time when the Linux Kernel Maintainers *had* to break User Space?

Monday 7th of September 2015 12:31:03 PM

Or.. technically break something IN User Space.
Someone recently posted about Linus' rant at a Kernel Maintainer for introducing a patch that would really break things (as well as being bad code).
It made me wonder if there have been times when the existing code had been determined to be bad and the fix would ultimately break other existing programs, but still had to be done.

Reddit: Purism pledged 90K to their own librem 13 campaign

Monday 7th of September 2015 12:08:40 PM

Look at this: Then look at the live link:

There are only 4 extra people on the live version, at the time of writing. They are, according to those pages: Caroline T, Lawrence D, Morgan H and Todd W

3 of them pledged after the 90K surge. The first one before that is Todd Weaver, the CEO of Purism.


Surely, this violates the principles of a crowd funding campaign? The Purism CEO is cheating by pledging so much to his own campaign, surely?

Surely, this is unfair to other crowd funding campaigns?

Wine Staging: Release 1.7.52

Some minutes ago we released Wine Staging 1.7.52. This is the first release after WineConf 2015 and the integration into WineHQ. Some of the changes related to the integration have been realized in the meantime and you should now use the WineHQ bug tracker for reporting bugs. Just open them as regular Wine bugs and mention the used wine version. Although this news is mostly about the source code changes, I would like to mention that Arch Linux now provides an official package which is also named wine-staging and therefore conflicts with our packages. The package installs into /usr instead of /opt/wine-staging so you might run into conflicts with other wine versions. Take a look at our Wiki for more information. Read more

  • KaOS 2015.10 KDE-focused Linux distro available now
    While I am a GNOME fan, I recognize how wonderful KDE is too. If you prefer a traditional desktop user interface, KDE is a smart choice. Not only is it it easy to use for beginners, but it offers a ton of customization options for advanced users too. There are quite a few KDE-based Linux distros, such as Kubuntu, Linux Mint KDE, and Netrunner, but the lesser known KaOS offers a more pure experience. This distro has a goal of remaining lean, while being fairly bleeding edge regarding KDE packages -- it is a great showcase for the desktop environment. Today, version 2015.10 sees release, and you can download it now.
