LXer: Why Microsoft needed to make Windows run Linux software

Wednesday 6th of April 2016 11:51:34 PM
Microsoft deciding to support Linux software on Windows is a surprising move, and the obvious question is, why? Superficially, the answer is easy—developers like these tools, so supporting them makes developers happy—but the story runs a little deeper than that. Supporting Linux apps in Windows is a significant move for a company that has spent decades promoting its own APIs and application platform, and it's unlikely that the company would make such a move just to provide a few creature comforts to developers. The need goes deeper than that.

Reddit: X Window System utilizing Web Technologies

Wednesday 6th of April 2016 09:09:09 PM

What would be your knee-jerk reaction to an X Window Manager which exposes its elements as HTML (via Chromium Embedded Framework or something), and allows CSS styling and a .rc based Javascript interpreter? Not a VNC solution or anything, although it could be used on any network machine by standard X protocol and could probably by served to any web browser as regular old HTML. I just think it would be elegant.

LXer: How to setup HAProxy as Load Balancer for MariaDB on CentOS 7

Wednesday 6th of April 2016 08:14:17 PM
In this tutorial, I will guide you trough the installation of a MariaDB Galera cluster on CentOS 7 which has an HAProxy load balancer in front. The total setup consists of 4 servers. I will use 3 CentOS 7 servers for the database nodes, 2 nodes will be active and 1 acts as the backup node. The fourth server will be used for the HAProxy load balancer. For the balance algorithm, we use leastconn (but you can use other algorithms).

    This tells the story of how I finally managed a successful transfer of email data from KMail version 1.13.6 to version 4.11.5. It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
