Nuvola Player's currently supported services include Google Music, Grooveshark, Hype Machine and 8tracks.

When I said Nuvola is the perfect replacement for Banshee in Ubuntu, I didn't mean that Nuvola beats Banshee in terms of features it offer, far from it. But if you are someone who stream music from one of the many popular cloud based music services like Google Music or Grooveshark (which a lot of people these days do), then Nuvola Player is all you need.

An Early Look At Linux 4.16 Performance On Five Systems

Here are some preliminary benchmarks of the Linux 4.16 development kernel compared to Linux 4.15 stable on five different systems. Last week I began testing out the Linux 4.16 kernel on a few different boxes and it's been going rather well (sans the ongoing AMD Raven Ridge Linux issues...). For some initial Linux 4.16 kernel benchmarks I have results today to share for a Core i5 6600K, Core i7 6800K, Xeon E3-1280 v5, Core i9 7980XE, and Ryzen 7 1800X as a few of the available boxes for testing. Tests on other hardware and a greater variety of tests will be coming in the days and weeks ahead as Linux 4.16 continues to stabilize. Read more

Oracle open-sources DTrace under the GPL

Oracle appears to have open-sourced DTrace, the system instrumentation tool that Sun Microsystems created in the early 2000s and which has been beloved of many-a-sysadmin ever since. As noted by developer Mark J. Wielaard, this commit by an Oracle developer shows that something is afoot. Read more
