30 Days In GNOME vs. 3 Days In KDE

Filed under
Software

At the end of 2006, I prepared myself for a "survival experiment". Using a fresh Slackware 11 install (on the laptop), I decided not to touch my home desktop for a week (which features GNOME under Debian testing-unstable, and was still up and running for routing purposes), and only use WindowMaker (with ROX-Filer for a more pleasant experience) the whole week, as a way to make me "forget" my typical GNOME habits.

After a week, I switched to KDE for 3 days, on the same laptop.

— § —
The idea of making this experiment came from an article I've read in the British LXF #87, pages 56-59: «30 Days With GNOME», by Graham Morrison. After having read how a KDE fan was able to "survive" after a month of immersion in GNOME, I thought I could undergo a similar, though opposite process: how can a GNOME fanboy survive in KDE?

Full Story.

Fanless network appliance runs Linux on Marvell Armada 370

Axiomtek’s fanless “NA150″ network appliance runs Linux on a Marvell Armada 370 SoC and offers five GbE ports, a 2.5-inch drive bay, and mini-PCIe wireless. The NA150 is latest addition to Axiomtek’s family of compact desktop and rack-mountable network appliances, but it appears to be the first to stray from the well-trodden x86 path. Unlike the company’s similar circa-2011 NA330 and NA320R systems, which were powered by Intel Atoms, the NA150 is built around Marvell’s ARMv7-based Armada 370 system-on-chip. Read more

Real pics of Samsung's clamshell Android with 16 MP camera emerge, flippin' awesome

Samsung's flip Android comes with two 3.9-inch Super AMOLED panels with 768 by 1280 pixels of resolution, both of them protected by layers of Corning's Gorilla Glass 4, which is the same ultra-resistant glass that you're going to find on high-end Samsung handsets such as the Galaxy Note5 or the Galaxy S6. The handset draws its processing power from the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, a SoC that's paired with 2 GB of RAM. Read more

OpenBSD Is Getting Its Own Native Hypervisor

The OpenBSD Foundation has been funding work on a project to provide OpenBSD with its own, native hypervisor. The hypervisor's VMM is so far able to launch a kernel and ask for a root file-system, but beyond that, it's been laying most of the hypervisor foundation up to this point. Read more

The Death of Ubuntu's Software Center

Over the past few weeks, the fate of Ubuntu's Software Center has received a lot of press. There have been ample ravings about how the Software Center is about to vanish from the face of the Earth. In reality, it's not going anywhere yet. What is changing, however, will be the ability to submit new applications or updates to existing applications. In this article, I'll explain what this means and where things will likely go from here. Read more
