Looking Ahead: Ubuntu Linux

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu is a pretty interesting Linux distribution isn't it? I mean, no other take on Linux has shot so high so fast. Nobody has single-handedly turned the desktop Linux world over on its ear like Ubuntu has. Nobody. What makes it so special? What sets it apart from the hundreds of other distros on the market today? Well, we're here to take a look at the latest pre-release copy of what is to become Ubuntu 6.06... Flight 5.

Consumers are an interesting lot. One a very grand scale, they have common needs in specific sectors. On a more granular scale, those needs can also be quite diverse. Let's take, for instance, the Linux desktop... at least as we know it today. We all agree on very broad concepts such as ease of installation, ease of use, polished look and feel, good/smart application compliment, and overall system stability. We all agree that these requirements make up a huge portion of the Linux-using public, right? If that is true then distros such as SUSE, Fedora, and Mandriva should be at the top of the heap right?

Full Story.

Create modular server-side Java apps direct from mvn modules with diet4j instead of an app server

In the latest release, the diet4j module framework for Java has learned to run modular Java apps using the Apache jsvc daemon (best known from running Tomcat on many Linux distros). If org.example.mydaemon is your top Maven project, all you do is specify it as the root module for your jsvc invocation, and diet4j figures out the dependencies when jsvc starts. An example systemd.service file is available.
