If you live in the web browser, using a Linux-based operating system makes a lot of sense. By combining say, Ubuntu and Google Chrome, you can have a very secure and easy-to-use platform running the world's best web browser. A bloated and heavy Windows 10, for instance, could be unnecessary.
The first signs of the end of 32bit are on the wall - starting with Linux. I wonder how long Google will continue to support 32bit Chrome on Windows. For some strange reason, Microsoft is still selling 32bit Windows 10.
The brief announcement was made an hour ago by Dirk Pranke on the Chromium-dev group, and it informs users of Ubuntu and Debian GNU/Linux distributions that starting with March 2016, the Google Chrome web browser will no longer be available for 32-bit hardware platforms.
One of the core topics of this blog -at least one of the main reasons it came to existence- was open standards: their benefits, their advantages, and their value as a fundamental component for digital innovation and ultimately software freedom. This is still the case of course, but today I will try to show how one open standard in particular, ODF, has failed in its approach until now and could very well make a remarkable comeback.
This is not to say that ODF is a bad idea or that it is not a good standard; it is all this and much more. However I have realized with the hindsight of several years since it became an official ISO standard that the expectations about its adoption and its development have been defined the wrong way. Hence the title of this post.
We are happy to announce our eight update for Manjaro 15.09 (Bellatrix)!
Archlinux decided to go with Xorg-Server 1.18.0 even with the fact that Catalyst doesn’t support that server yet. Therefor we used once more our overlay feature which blocks that series from updating. However I already updated some drivers against the 1.17 series of the Xorg-Server, including the latest Nvidia drivers.
It's coming a few days late, but Mesa 11.1 Release Candidate 2 was officially released today.
Mesa 11.1 when released later in December will have many new features but doesn't bump the overall OpenGL version support. Now being past the Mesa Git branching, Mesa 11.1-RC2 is just about bug/regression fixing.
Today marks the surprise release of Enlightenment 0.20! The E20 development cycle has taken more than a year and saw more than 1,890 patches merged.
The prominent features of Enlightenment 0.20 include full Wayland support, new screen management infrastructure and dialogs, new audio mixer infrastructure, internal widgets being replaced with Elementary, improved FreeBSD support, and a new Geolocation module.
The Turris Omnia is different from most other routers in a number of ways. The biggest — and coolest — is that it ships with an OpenWrt-based OS that lets you hack it to do just about anything you could do with a desktop Linux system. Use the integrated virtual server for anything you want, like an OwnCloud or Tonido instance or an encrypted chat host.
Follow-up tests on this MacBook Air are likely to happen with Ubuntu and potentially other Linux distributions too. There will also be more tests to come; with OS X El Capitan, some of the PTS test profiles that formerly worked on OS X weren't working on this new release and so those additional benchmarks will come later on.
After failing to build working kernels for the past few weeks, the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel PPA is finally offering working daily Linux kernel builds.
Today's kernel build following Linux 4.4-rc3 is the first since the release candidates began to have a successful build of Linux 4.4. All the builds up to now were borked due to a Lustre/LNET dependency issue.
LEGO bricks: To a parent, they're a virtual minefield, hidden away in the carpet to inflict unimaginable pain from a seemly innocent barefoot step. But to a child, they are a tool for creatively engineering anything the mind can imagine. And for many, they are our first foray into open source. The instructions with a LEGO set start out as rigid rules, and become merely guidelines as children learn to remix, adapt, and extend the "code" which defines the object being built, and then be shared with anyone nearby.
This season’s spirit of giving fits right in with the Linux and open source philosophy. Whether you’re paying it forward in line for coffee, volunteering at a local food bank, or contributing to an open source project in your spare time, giving back to the community is what it’s all about.
In keeping with that tradition, the Linux Foundation is offering a special Cyber Monday deal on training and certification to help you build your job skills or transition to a new career.
This week only, you can sign up for training and certification as a Linux system administrator for a special rate of $179 (regularly $499)! This special deal includes.
So, what to take a away from this? In a reduced form, Plasma can be a huge help to create also Android applications. The mobile components which we’re developing with Plasma Mobile as target in mind have had their first real world exposure and a lot of fixes, we got very useful feedback from the Subsurface community which we’re directly feeding back into our components.
“Matrix” is a sensor-studded Ubuntu Snappy based home automation and surveillance hub that supports voice automation and gesture and face recognition.
In 2014, AdMobilize applied its computer vision (CV) expertise to the AdBeacon, a recently upgraded Linux-based device that sits next to display advertising and watches, and analyzes public response (see farther below). Now, the Miami Beach-based firm has gone to Kickstarter to sell a Linux-based home automation hub called the Matrix, which uses similar computer vision technology, including gesture and face recognition.
