Have Linux Lovers gone to the dark side?

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

I was having a conversation with my alter ego earlier on. No, not the one in a mirror. A real person living on the other side of the world to me. This person is as much a windows person as I am a Linux person.

This person lamented to me that with the release of w8 the Linux crowd have become extremely nasty and trollish in bringing the newest offering of microsoft down. They stated that Linux people never used to be like this and any sympathy he felt for them has now evaporated due to their latest actions.

Personally I had not noticed such abnormal behaviour.

rest here




Remind your friend that

Remind your friend that Microsoft is no good soul trying to sell good software, but has rather always lied and FUD his way to the top, not to mention their unethical or outright criminal behavior towards the competition. Their software is buggy and intentionally fragile so they can always sell the "fix" in the next version, their software has backdoors so the US goverment can spy on any computer on the planet using Windows. Etc, etc.

So yeah, it the truth offends, find friends with better common sense.

Gngr: A New Web Browser Focused On Privacy

A group of developers have started writing their own open-source web browser that primarily is designed to increase web privacy and greater security. Gngr is the new web browser under development and its conservative defaults mean no cookies, JavaScript, HTTP referring support, third-party frames, and a minimalistic user-agent string. Gngr is written in Java to make use of the Java runtime's sandboxing abilities but ultimately they plan to switch over to some other JVM-based language. While the code has yet to drop on Gngr, it's said to be coming after the initial release. Those interested in more information on this privacy-focused web-browser can visit Gngr.info. Read more

With Assembly, anyone can contribute to open-source software and actually get paid

The open-source movement has produced some of the most widely utilized software in the world, a huge economic value driven by a widely dispersed community who believe contributing good work is often its own reward. Outside of the world of computer science, however, these strategies are still relatively niche. A San Francisco startup called Assembly is trying to change all that, by evolving the open-source model to easily incorporate disciplines outside coding and to include a shared profit motive as well. Today the company is announcing a $2.9 million round of funding it will use to help expand its platform. Read more
