TuxMachines: Has the time come to rebrand open source?

Thursday 30th of October 2014 01:25:03 PM

I wonder how many other businesses are experiencing the same problem. I'm keen to start a conversation about how others fair when selling FOSS solutions and whether its time to get together again and think again about a re-branding that will have my prospective customers asking, "OK tell us more" rather than "open sounds insecure". To that end I would like to nominate a brand new name that I have seen used in FOSS communities as a suitable candidate... Community Software.

Thursday 30th of October 2014 12:32:49 PM

Reddit: Linux program like system monitor but will prompt you when one program takes too much cpu / memory

Thursday 30th of October 2014 10:51:40 AM

Is there a linux program behaving like a system monitor that will prompt me when one program takes too much cpu or memory (preset limits, i.e. more than 50% cpu, more than 60% memory usage) then prompt me to either Abort or Continue... Because whenever my linux feels a little slow, i try to find the culprit using Kde system monitor, then kill it from there... thank you

LXer: Puppy Linux 6.0 Screenshot Tour

Thursday 30th of October 2014 10:38:27 AM
We have another official Puppy Linux release. Since I retired from developing Puppy Linux early in 2014, keen members of the Puppy community forked my Woof Puppy builder, naming it woof-CE. Since then, 01micko has been active with a Puppy built from Slackware packages, named 'Slacko Puppy'. The guys have also been working on another pup, built from Ubuntu 'Trusty Tahr' binary packages, under the leadership of Phil Broughton and this has now reached release status. It is named 'Tahrpup' and is version 6.0. Tahrpup is an official release of Puppy Linux for those who would like the package manager to have compatibility with the large collection of packages in the Ubuntu repository.

Put something on-lineand it's in the wild, however much you'd prefer to keep it undercontrol.

TuxMachines: Three great Android tools for Linux and Windows sysadmin

Thursday 30th of October 2014 07:39:14 AM

Systems administration isn't a simple job — and being able to respond to issues quickly is a definite plus. Not long ago, server problems meant receiving a phone alert followed by a trip to the data center to fix whatever was wrong. Today, having full-powered computers such as smartphones or tablets literally in your hand is a tremendous help when doing sysadmin. Load Android with a few key applications and you can remotely monitor servers and services, get alerts and warnings as they occur, and solve problems without any travel at all.

TuxMachines: Windows Phone Shrinks In Android-Dominated Europe, As New iPhones Boost iOS’ Share

Thursday 30th of October 2014 07:32:43 AM

Spare a thought for Microsoft, a relative newcomer to the mobile making business, after Redmond completed its $7.2BN+ acquisition of former European mobile making powerhouse Nokia earlier this year. If Microsoft was hoping to see quick marketshare wins in Europe once its hands were fully on the levers of production that has not come to pass.

The latest 12-week smartphone sales figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, up to this September, indicate that Windows Phone’s already small share of the smartphone market has shrunk in Europe — dropping 0.3 percentage points in aggregate across the top five markets in Europe (the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany).

Linux-based AUV maps Antarctic sea ice thickness

Woods Hole Oceanographic used a Linux-based “SeaBED” AUV to build the first 3D map of Antarctic sea ice — and found it’s thicker than had been estimated. Every now and then we see some good news about climate change sprinkled in with all the increasingly dire warnings. Yesterday, the New York Times reported that solar and wind energy are starting to become competitive with natural gas. On the same day, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI), based in Massachusetts, announced it had published a paper in Nature Geoscience on experiments run by an autonomous, Linux-based submarine called the SeaBED. The underwater survey indicated that Antarctic sea ice was thicker than had been previously estimated. Read more

DragonFlyBSD 4.0 Drops i386 Support, Improves Graphics

The much anticipated release of DragonFlyBSD 4.0 is now available. The biggest "big ticket item" of DragonFlyBSD 4.0 include improving graphics support with the Linux-ported Intel DRM driver now handling Intel "Haswell" graphics complete with OpenGL support, well more than one year after it's been optimized for Linux users. DragonFlyBSD 4.0 is also significant in that it drops 32-bit i386 support in making it 64-bit only for x86 systems. While the DRM driver porting takes a while across all BSD distributions right now, at least DragonFlyBSD developers can take a stand for pushing forward and focusing on 64-bit support rather than 32-bit.
