Fabrice Facorat: Reply to the FUD about Linux ready for Desktop

Filed under
MDV

How sad it is to see when people in the OpenSource community are doing so much FUD and people are jumping as the Panurge's sheeps. What ? I'm talking about Distrowatch which sems to compete for the FUD of the year. I can't believe that someone is doing something like this Sad This make me have doubts about some of the distrowatch journalism ethical/moral code. So here are my clarifications :

I'M NOT A MANDRIVA EMPLOYEE. I'm working as Sysadmin in a company doing fiscal business. ALL ( yes I said ALL ) computers ( servers and workstation ) are under Linux and more precisely Mandriva. Even the laptops are under Linux. I'm just a contributor.

This was my PERSONAL OPINION on my PERSONAL BLOG, and so this doesn't reflect Mandriva opinion. On top of that the blog was edited under the general Linux topic and not the Mandriva topic.

In this famous blog entry I never mention Mandriva.

Full Post.

re: soap opera

Someone apparently thinks people actually read and care about all these little personal soap opera's.

News flash - they don't.

re: soaps

Well, apparently they do. It was of big interest in this week's DWW and the links to the responses are being clicked. Sorry, if it's not up to standard for content.

re: re: soaps

Didn't mean to sound like my comment was directed at Tuxmachines - you're doing a great job (article variety is a good thing)

Unlike the players involved in the article - this was the first I heard of their earth shaking scandal.

My comment was an attempt to put things in perspective (that being that although the players are "in a frenzy" pretty much the rest of the world some how seems to be blissfully unaware and uncaring).

Yet another GTK+ update

GTK+ 3.20 was released a while ago; we’re up to 3.20.3 now. As I tried to explain in earlier posts here and here, this was a pretty active development cycle for GTK+. We landed a lot of of new stuff, and many things have changed. I’m using the neutral term changed here for a reason. How you view changes depends a lot on your perspective. Us, who implemented the changes, are of course convinced that they are great improvements. Others who maintain GTK+ themes or applications may have a different take, since changes often imply that they have to do work to adapt. Read more

Octa-core Cortex-A53 hacker SBC sells for $60

FriendlyARM’s $60, open spec “NanoPC-T3” SBC runs Android or Linux on an octa-core Cortex-A53 SoC packed with wireless and media interfaces, plus 8GB eMMC. The over-caffeinated board builders at Guangzhou, China-based FriendlyARM have shipped their highest-end hacker board yet. The NanoPC-T3 is almost identical to the NanoPC-T2 board, but swaps out the quad-core, Cortex-A9 Samsung S5P4418 SoC for a layout-compatible S5P6818 with eight Cortex-A53 cores that can be clocked dynamically from 400MHz to 1.4GHz. Last month, FriendlyARM’ unveiled an $11, quad-core NanoPi M1 single board computer with similarly open source hardware and Android and Linux software. Read more
