Windows, the common carrier of Microsoft, is such a sordid mess that it suffers regular glitches and conducts mass surveillance on users. Microsoft knows that without Windows it cannot survive, so dirty tricks resume in a very big way. This is not a beep on the radar but somewhat of a surge.
Nothing is going to change in Munich, but Microsoft is trying to maintain an international/universal perception that the migration to GNU/Linux was a disaster. Numerous anonymous blogs were created to attack Munich over this and provocateurs of Microsoft loved citing them, only to be repeatedly proven wrong. Microsoft is trying to make an example out of Munich in all sorts of nefarious ways. We need to defend Munich from this malicious assault by the convicted monopolist and corrupt enterprise that’s acting as though it fights for its very survival (while indeed laying off tens of thousands of employees).
Yes! We use a lot of open source. The short list includes Python, GitHub, Processing, VLC, jQuery, D3.js, Blender, VRUI, ImageJ, VMD, ParaView, MeshLab, VNC, ImageMagick, SWIG, Emacs, and many more.
We like using open source because it gives us more flexibility because of licensing and allows us the opportunity to contribute back to the community using our expertise.
Our favorite open source project that we work on is OpenMDAO. This project is run out of another Division at our Center. Our team provides some programming support. OpenMDAO is an open source Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO) framework, written in Python. You can use it to develop an integrated analysis and design environment for your engineering challenges.
Let's talk about my project now. KStars is desktop planetarium application under KDE Education Projects. I developed QML based cool interface to enable users to browse through image database of community of astrophotographers (i.e. astrobin.com) which contains more than 1,20,000 (number is increasing everyday) real time and very high resolution images along with various information related to them (i.e. Date on which image was captured, Bortle Dark-Sky Scale, RA Centre, DEC Centre, Telescope or Camera used, Description added by astrophotographer etc). I am sure that this browser will enthrall school children by showing them real time images of stars and galaxies located at hundreds of light year far from earth.

I'm currently a scientific/systems programmer and Linux user, and have read occasional articles from LWN.net in the past that were posted here or in hackernews. I was wondering if any /r/linux subscribers pay for a LWN.net subscription, and if they consider it to be worth the money.submitted by Imxset21

I've been learning the differences in RHEL6 & RHEL7 lately and I noticed that you can no longer install system-config-lvm on RHEL7. After some reading I found system-storage-manager and read the man pages for it. I then added a new virtual disk to a VMWare VM, installed using "yum install system-storage-manager -y", then I found my new disk's name with "ssm list", it was /dev/sdb and I made note of the pool name that I wanted to extend. Then extending it was as simple as "ssm /dev/sdb -p poolName". I was blown away with how simple this was compared to the old command line process of extending an lvm. It was even simpler than using the old GUI system-config-lmv. It was so easy I'm questioning it, has the process really been simplified this much? If so I already love RHEL7.submitted by kissthering
