New tab?

How about a new tab, instead of a new window?

New Tab?

I am with you, I would also prefer new tab, I usually end the day with a lot of tabs open, but I do not like a lot epiphany windows opened.

re: links

I'd use "same window". Because if you force a "new window" there's no way around it - but if you use "same window" people can always right-click and chose "new tab or new window" whatever they prefer.

Links duality

I find it very distracting. Better to choose one. Smile

re: Links duality

I plan to. It's a bit of a pain to do both. I was kinda waiting for the results of the poll. It looks like "same window" has pulled ahead. It was pretty much even for a while.

No difference

Doesn't matter to me cause I do it from Thunderbird......

Thanks for the hard work!

) So mobile isn't coded on

Smile)
So mobile isn't coded on the site?
I just assumed it was as it just seems to fit.......

same window for me. I

same window for me. I usually open it in a new tab but if I forget, at least I don't have another firefox window open.

Hmmmm. Then again, on my i-phone I prefer a new window.

Perhaps php would do the trick?
[append some string to every link, in place of _blank or _new place the string, as in:
a href=”http://www.tuxmachines.org” target=”_myString”>TuxMachines.org]

(add to whatever pages you want the function on)

?php
//sets the string uastring the value of your useragent
$uastring = ($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'];
//searches your useragent for the text iPhone,
//if it is there set myString the value new.
$strpos (uastring, "iPhone") if !FALSE myString = "new";
else myString = "blank";
?>

(Although the link may not work if its outside the php, I'm not great at php Smile Feel free to correct me!)

UNIX Industry Banks on Linux Strategies

Struggling UNIX server makers are strengthening their Linux strategy in line with the open-source application environment. The move is aimed at maintaining remaining customers, since users are increasingly abandoning UNIX servers. However, it is receiving a lukewarm response from the market. According to industry sources on Dec. 22, server vendors such as IBM and HP are concentrating on the development of products so that the Linux operating system and related applications can be used as UNIX servers.

Mageia Beta Delayed, Christmas Quiz, and 7 Best Alternatives

Today in Linux news the Mageia project announced another delay in version 5 Beta 2. The Linux Voice is running a Linux quiz for Christmas and Gary Newell offers up his list of the seven best alternative Linux distributions of the year. The Register says 2015 will be the year of Linux - on mobile. Three reviews need to be highlighted and, finally today, Matt Hartley says everyone should switch to Ubuntu MATE.

Christmas rest for the braves

We planned initially to release Mageia 5 beta 2 around the 16th of December. We still have some work left to complete to release a proper beta 2 that would drive us through to the final release. Releasing development ISOs is a good way to test all the functions of the installer with the largest possible scope of use cases and variety of hardware. We still have some issues left with EFI integration and some tricky bugs in the installer. So in order to allow some time to fix them and also to still enjoy the Christmas period with friends and family, it has been decided to delay beta 2 until the 6th of January 2015, the initial date of the RC, and then postpone the final release.

Enterprise Advances Brought Linux Success in 2014

For Linux, 2014 could easily be labeled the year enterprise really and truly embraced Linux. It could just as easily be labeled the year that nearly forgot Linux on the desktop. If you weren’t Docker, containers, OpenStack, or big data ─ chances are the spotlight didn’t brighten your day much. If, however, you (or your product) fell into one of those categories, that spotlight shined so brightly, it was almost blinding. Let’s glance back into our own wayback machine and see where Linux succeeded and where it did not. The conclusions should be fairly simple to draw and are incredibly significant to the state of Linux as a whole. Read more
