  • The Value of ‘Freedom’ in the Open Source Space

    On a recent article on Forbes, technology journalist Adrian Bridgwater pointed out what the term “free” truly means when it comes to open source software. “Free” here does not mean a lack of monetary value. It means that users have the liberty to run, change, distribute and copy the software as they wish. It is not like “free beer”; it’s more like “free speech”. The true value of free software then, lies not on any price but in the liberty; in the way open source software can continuously develop through the unrestrained contributions of the community.

  • ReactOS The Perfect Windows Alternate – Review and Installation

    Microsoft’s Windows dominance in the Desktop PC space has been a thing for decades now and the 30years old OS — although has made some significant strides in the industry — is undoubted a monopoly. Thank God for options like OSX and Linux Desktop of course, we would all have been choking on – and continue to choke on whatever the Redmond company decides to throw at our faces.

  • Use Your Database!

    I love high-level, dynamically typed languages, such as Python, Ruby and JavaScript. They're easy—and even fun—to use. They let me express myself richly, and they lend themselves to code that easily can be reused and maintained. It's no surprise that interest in such languages is on the rise, especially when creating Web applications.

  • Will open-source farming topple agribusiness giants?

    Agriculture is the backbone of human civilisation, but it's about to snap under our weight. The world is on the brink of a food crisis in which our current industrial models of agriculture will not support the projected population of nine billion by the year 2050. Our best hope for farming in the future lies with advances in technology: sensors, big data and networks. These advances will move us into an agricultural revolution that will feed more people, feed them more effectively and feed them sustainably.

  • Should your NGO go open source?

    He said he is skeptical that there is any value in keeping most data private. The Sunlight Foundation, among others, has pushed for organizations to set the default to open. And this belief that information is a public good, and that making that data available is a public service, seems particularly relevant to anyone working to address global poverty, he said.

  • How to backup data with Déjà Dup on Linux

    Déjà Dup is a free an open source program we can use to easily create incremental data backups on Linux. The program is basically a graphical frontend for Duplicity; its goal is to hide complexity, be simple and easy to use. Backups created with Déjà Dup can be encrypted and stored locally and remotely, even using storage space provided by services like Google Drive. In this tutorial we see how to install Déjà Dup on some of the most used Linux distributions, how to create and restore data backups.

  • How to create incremental system backups with Timeshift on Linux

    Linux-based operating systems, if well configured, are really stable; however, since bad things can always happen, it is a good idea to regularly create backups. As we saw in previous articles, there are many types of backup, and many possible backup strategies which can be implemented on Linux, using free and open source software. In this article we focus on Timeshift, an application which allows us to create incremental backups of our Linux system. The tool is similar to the Apple Time Machine, and can work as a frontend for rsync or use the BTRFS filesystem snapshot feature under the hood. In this tutorial we see how to install and configure Timeshift on Linux, and how to create incremental system backups.

  • How to unlock a LUKS volume on boot on Raspberry Pi OS

    LUKS (Linux Unified Key Setup) is the de facto standard encryption method used on Linux-based operating systems. As we saw in previous tutorials, when we want a partition or raw disk encrypted using LUKS to be automatically unlocked at boot, we need to enter a dedicated line into the /etc/crypttab file. Doing so, we are prompted to provide the encryption password interactively. This is quite straightforward on laptop or desktop machines, but how can we unlock a volume on an headless server? One solution is to use dropbear to get ssh access at an early boot stage, in the initramfs, in order to provide the volume password. In this tutorial we see how to use dropbear-initramfs to get ssh access at an early boot stage, in order to unlock a LUKS volume.
