In this sense, software commons make sense, and because these commons do not effectively exist in some village somewhere in Europe during the Middle Ages, but much rather all over the Internet, they are of primary importance for software and for the world we live in.
GNOME 3.17.4 is out. This is a development snapshot, so use it with caution.
Among the new things in this release, you can find improved Wayland hi-dpi
support in mutter, IP addresses for vms in gnome-boxes, MathML support in
orca, performance improvements in tracker, events from different boots in
gnome-logs, a new places view in the GTK+ file chooser, a new application
preview: gnome-todo, and many small improvements and bug fixes all over
However, open-source software and hardware has become the platform of choice for developers for next-generation drone technology. Mature alternatives exist in the open-source realm. From OpenPilot to Dronecode, these projects emphasize customizability and offer ways to collaborate on development and support that are not possible with proprietary systems. For every layer of the drone, from flight code to firmware, to vision processing and collision avoidance, there are viable open-source options.
As I learned more about Linux, it became easier to use with time. I was impressed by the contributions of open source developers to it as well. Use cases that were really hard for me at first became easier as more advancements were made in the Linux community. At one point, finding and installing codecs to play multimedia files was annoying, but later it became a cinch. Proprietary drivers (when absolutely necessary) required me to recompile my kernel, but it is now often just a checkbox. Free drivers have also made leaps and bounds.
I've released man-pages-4.01. The release tarball is available on kernel.org. The browsable online pages can be found on man7.org. The Git repository for man-pages is available on kernel.org.
This release resulted from patches, bug reports,and comments from nearly 50 contributors. As well as a large number of minor fixes to over 100 man pages, the more significant changes in man-pages-4.01 include the following.
Embedded Linux Conference, Premier Linux and Open Source Conferences, and Linux Foundation Training for IndiaSubmitted by Roy Schestowitz on Thursday 23rd of July 2015 08:43:39 PM
The Linux Foundation posted a schedule for LinuxCon + CloudOpen + Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2015 (Oct. 5-7), and expanded its training into India.
Open source has always been about democracy, openness, and opportunity. In keeping with that spirit, at Linux Foundation Training we’re working to make high-quality professional Linux training available worldwide. As part of that, today we’re announcing region-specific pricing for India. Starting now, if you live in India, you’ll be able to purchase the LFS201 Essentials of System Administration bundle with included LFCS exam for 5,000 Rupees (~$79). This pricing is available only to residents of India.
Linux Foundation announced its Essentials of System Administration course and Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator exam for individuals in India for $79 or Rs 5,000.
The GNOME 3 Human Interface Guidelines were released just under a year ago. They incorporated material from the GNOME 2 HIG, but they were also a thorough rework: the GNOME 3 HIG has a radically different structure from the GNOME 2 one, and is largely based on a collection of design patterns. The hope was that this collection could grow and evolve over time, ensuring that the HIG is always up to date with the latest design practice.
Richard Stallman, the founder of the Free Software Foundation and the GNU Project known by many in the open source worlds as rms, is not the sort of person you'd expect to endorse a product. But Stallman and the FSF have formed a partnership of sorts with Crowd Supply, a crowdfunding company that has been largely focused on open source hardware and software projects.
It's easy to forget that Android is little more than a decade old. I fondly remember one of my first editors at CIO.com asking me to write a story about "WHAT ANDROID MEANS TO ENTERPRISE." I write that title in capital letters, bold, italics, underline and quotation marks because the story was supposed to have gravity. This was in 2007 or 2008, when Android was more of a concept than something the average Joe could grasp in his hands. I was supposed to explain the mysterious OS, and quell the fears of CIOs, who worried the consumer software would make their jobs harder.
The latest Android-based smart TV platform – cunningly called Android TV – is by my reckoning Google’s third stab at becoming a force to be reckoned with in the smart TV world. Actually its fourth if you also include the early and little-seen Android 4.2 Jelly Bean effort introduced on a few high-end Philips TVs in a handful of European territories last year.

They should delete their OS-test. It’s none of their business what OS I run. Their stuff doesn’t run on my OS but on applications that run perfectly on my OS.
The Linux desktop has changed considerably over the years, and today's desktop developers have a considerably different mindset than in years gone by. Datamation takes a look at eight trends happening in today's Linux desktop.
Clonezilla 2.4.2-21 has been released and is available for download. Clonezilla is a Linux distribution based on Debian GNU/Linux and it offers a Live (bootable) CD that features all the necessary utilities for cloning the content of hard drives.
While Debian 9.0 "Stretch" most likely will not be officially released until 2017 given that Debian 8 "Jessie" was just released a few months ago, the Debian Installer team has already put out their first alpha version for Stretch.
Andy Greenberg was speeding along a busy interstate in St. Louis recently when he suddenly lost control of his vehicle. The accelerator abruptly stopped working. The car crawled to a stop. As 18-wheelers whizzed by his stalled vehicle, Greenberg began to panic.
Car Hack Demonstrates Why Security Researchers Shouldn't Have To Worry About Copyright In Exposing Weaknesses
However, the part that I wanted to focus on is related to a discussion we were just having a few weeks ago, in which General Motors (which was not the target of this particular hack) claimed that any sort of tinkering with their software, such as to discover these kinds of security holes, should be considered copyright infringement, thanks to Section 1201 of the DMCA. Section 1201, also known as the anti-circumvention provision, says circumventing "technological protection measures" (TPMs) -- even for reasons that have nothing to do with copyright -- should be deemed copyright infringement and subject to all the statutory damages (up to $150k per violation!) that copyright allows. Some have been pushing for an exemption for things like security researchers tinkering with new connected car systems to make sure they're safe. And GM and other automakers have said "no way." GM's argument is, more or less, that the company would prefer to put its head in the sand, and not have security researchers help it discover security flaws in its systems -- leaving only malicious attackers to find those.
