TuxMachines: Control Or Consensus?

2 hours 6 min ago

In a recent conversation on the Apache Legal mailing list, a participant opined that “any license can be Open Source. OSI doesn’t ‘own’ the term.” He went on to explain “I could clone the Apache License and call it ‘Greg’s License’ and it would be an open source license.”

As long as the only people involved in the conversation are the speaker and people who defer to his authority, this might be OK. But as soon as there are others involved, it’s not. For the vast majority of people, the term “open source license” is not a personal conclusion resulting from considered evaluation, but rather a term of art applied to the consensus of the community. Individuals are obviously free to use words however they wish, just like Humpty Dumpty. But the power of the open source movement over two decades has arisen from a different approach.

The world before open source left every developer to make their own decision about whether software was under a license that delivers the liberty to use, improve and share code without seeking the permission of a rights holder. Inevitably that meant either uncertainty or seeking advice from a lawyer about the presence of software freedom. The introduction of the open source concept around the turn of the millennium solved that using the crystalisation of consensus to empower developers.

By holding a public discussion of each license around the Open Source Definition, a consensus emerged that could then by crystalised by the OSI Board. Once crystalised into “OSI Approval”, the community then has no need to revisit the discussion and the individual developer has no need to guess (or to buy advice) on the compatibility of a given license with software freedom. That in turn means proceeding with innovation or deployment without delay.

Reddit: Did you know that you can use tab-autocomplete on scp?

3 hours 38 min ago

I just found out that you can autocomplete paths with tab when typing an scp command, if you already have an authentication to the remote server, i.e. in my case when you have a valid kerberos ticket.

I've been using ssh for like 10 years now and did not know that. Thought I would share it with you.

Reddit: User of free software here, I've always appreciated the freedom it offers to mess with my devices/machines and the fact it makes the source code available for educational purposes but never understood the integralism of the FSF with the copyleft/G

3 hours 50 min ago

I agree the source code should be always visible to make sure the program doesn't hide malicious functionalities but why is a developer supposed to allow modifications and free redistribution of its code in order to respect freedom? I know it's great and laudable in an ideal world but imo it doesn't work in the real one. Why is making your code only visible not enough for how you mean freedom?

LXer: How to create an e-book chapter template in LibreOffice Writer

But firing up your word processor and typing away isn't enough—you need to follow a format.That's where a template comes in. A template ensures that your book has a consistent look and feel. Luckily, creating a template is quick and easy, and the time and effort you spend on it will give you a better-looking book.read more

Reddit: Are there any good and light Operating Systems for MacBooks?

4 hours 6 min ago

I have a 2016 12 inch MacBook. I really love this machine but every now and then when switching between desktops or between tabs the system hangs and it really ruins the experience for me. I bought this machine for its great user experience and the superb build quality really lives up to the hype. It also looks amazing to me. I feel though that the 1.1GHz processor just can't handle the load sometimes.

So I'm wondering if there are any good, low resource, operating systems that are configured for MacBooks or ones that are simple to configure myself.

My hopes here would be to install a new, lighter, OS that can make use of the Mac keyboard layout and will just be less intensive for the CPU so that I don't have to endure the OS hanging.

Reddit: Why do 3D Modelling Software Companies hate Linux?

4 hours 15 min ago

There are some neat and impressive opensource 3D Modelling Softwares out there. FreeCAD, OpenSCAD to name a couple.

The big players have no Linux options. Solidworks, Creo and Catia, as far as I can see do not run on any disto. They can be run on virtualized Windows Systems, but that is likely to suffer from major performance issues if it can run at all.

So I ask, why no Linux support Solidworks, Creo and Catia? (Catia apparently will run on Unix, so perhaps BSD could run it).

Anyone successful and running the major modelers on Linux?

Ubuntu GNOME Shell in Artful: Day 16

All good things must come to an end, however, in that particular case, it’s rather a beginning! We are indeed almost done in our road to Artful, which means that 17.10 is just around the corner: official Ubuntu 17.10 release is due tomorrow. Of course, it doesn’t mean we stop right away working on it: you will have bug fixes and security updates for 9 months of support! It’s thus time to close this series on Artful, and for this, we are going to tackle one topic we didn’t get to yet, which is quite important approaching the release: upgrading from a previous Ubuntu release! For more background on our current transition to GNOME Shell in artful, you can refer back to our decisions regarding our default session experience as discussed in my blog post. Read more

Curious about their modifications to Ubuntu 17.10, I decided to give the latest snapshot of it a ride. For those that missed the earlier news this summer, back in June is when System76 announced Pop!_OS as the Linux distribution to be shipped on their future PCs/laptops. System76 had been shipping stock Ubuntu installations on their systems since its founding in 2005, but with Ubuntu shifting from Unity back to GNOME Shell and other changes, System76 found it time to give their own take on a Linux desktop OS.
