Linux

Richard Stallman is a hippy. If you don’t know who he is then google it, you’ll get a whole bunch of sites on him. For those of you who don’t really have the time or don’t really care let me give you a brief description of the man. Richard Stallman is the founder of the FSF or the Free Software Foundation, which was formed in 1984 to promote free software development as opposed to proprietary software for which he also started something called the GNU project.

Presently, Linux has about 2% of the global desktop market share so coming across a Linux desktop itself is a rarity.

But all of that might soon change as our very own Kerala state government has announced that it will promote and encourage the usage of Linux systems as opposed to Microsoft in their 2500 odd government run and government aided high schools.

Full Story.

  • Introducing Stremio, a More Complete and Powerful Popcorn Time Alternative
    Stremio is an application built with Electron that streams and plays movies, TV shows, Youtube channels, and TV channels, from torrents. Sounds familiar?
  • mt-st project new homepage
    A short public notice: mt-st project new homepage at https://github.com/iustin/mt-st. Feel free to forward your distribution-specific patches for upstream integration!
  • letsencrypt support in propellor
    I'm using the reference letsencrypt client. While I've seen complaints that it has a lot of dependencies and is too complicated, it seemed to only need to pull in a few packages, and use only a few megabytes of disk space, and it has fewer options than ls does. So seems fine. (Although it would be nice to have some alternatives packaged in Debian.)
  • New release: usbguard-0.4
    I’m not dead yet. And the project is still alive too. It’s been a while since the last release, so it’s time to do another. The biggest improvements were made to the rule language by introducing the rule conditions and to the CLI by introducing a new command, usbguard, for interacting with a running USBGuard daemon instance and for generating initial policies.
  • The Improvements To GNOME's Nautilus 3.20 FIle Manager

    A new GNOME major upgrade is on its way, and it will ship with Nautilus 3.20. One of the developers working on it has presented some of the major features that will land.
