At the end of every year I always like to donate some small amount of money to the open source projects I spend the most time using. If everyone donated even 1/10th of the money free software saved them each year to the projects that they use, I have no doubt that a lot more open source software would exist today.
IO Visor: Bringing the Network to the Linux Kernel
The IO Visor project is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project chartered to create an open source, technical community where industry participants easily contribute to and adopt the IO Visor project's technology for an open programmable data plane for modern IO and networking applications.
2015: The very best Android smartphones
2015 has been an epic year for Android smartphones, and we're closing off the year with nine awesome devices from a range of manufacturers.
We've created the following tutorial at the request of our readers who asked us to post some easy-to-follow instructions on how to install the next-generation Unity 8 user interface on the Ubuntu Linux operating system.
The developers behind the Enlightenment open-source desktop environment have had the great pleasure of announcing today, November 30, 2015, the immediate availability for download of the final release of Enlightenment 0.20.0.
It has been seven years since I've joined SUSE (for second time, but that's different story). As everything has to come to the end, I've decided to make a change in my life and leave safety net of being employed and go for new experience with freelancer life.
PS: It's not that SUSE would be bad place to work. It's actually pretty great if you're looking for work with free software. You work there on free software, with great people and you get quite some freedom. As bonus once or twice in a year, there is Hackweek which you can spend on anything. And of course they have lot of open positions :-).
Linux Foundation adds Open Networking Summit to event portfolio
The Linux Foundation is adding the Open Networking Summit to its event portfolio beginning with the next show scheduled for March 14 in Santa Clara, California.
The ONS was initially started by companies focused on software-defined networking technologies to enable collaboration efforts centered on SDN, OpenFlow and network functions virtualization. Those events have seen collaborative efforts announced from the likes of AT&T, Google and the Linux Foundation.
Richard Stallman Is Not The Father Of Open Source
Richard Stallman wants to make one thing completely clear: He is not the father. "I'm not the father of open source. If I'm the father of open source, it was conceived by artificial insemination without my knowledge or consent," he proclaimed from the keynote stage last month at Fossetcon 2015. It wasn't close to the strongest statement he made from that stage.
KDE vs GNOME vs XFCE Desktop
Over many years, many people spent a long time with Linux desktop using either KDE or GNOME. These two environments have grown through the previous years and each of these desktops continued to expand their current user-base. For example, sleeper desktop environment has been XFCE as XFCE offers more robustness than LXDE that lacks much of XFCE’s polish in the default configuration. The XFCE provides all benefits which users enjoyed in the GNOME 2, but with some lightweight experiences which made it a hit on the older computers.
