Ubuntu 8.10: What’s New?

Filed under
Ubuntu

fosswire.com: Another six months, another Ubuntu release. This time around the table we have the Intrepid Ibex; 8.10. Not quite a ground-breaking release, but rather the framework for one. Why do I say that? Because there isn’t much new immediately visible to the user. Let’s take a look.

Three scripts for package management on Debian and Ubuntu systems

Filed under
Software

linux.com: Five of the top 10 most downloaded distributions on Distrowatch use the Debian package system. It has developed a rich infrastructure of utilities -- not just the core commands apt-get and dpkg, but also such less well-known commands as apt-cache, apt-spy, and apt-listbugs. In addition, an array of other scripts, some mashups of existing utilities, and some original, are regularly available on sites like openDesktop.org.

Installing Ubuntu Hardware Requirements

Filed under
Ubuntu

computingtech.blogspot: The hardware required to run Ubuntu depends on what kind of system you want to set up. A very minimal system that runs a textual (command line) interface and has very few software packages installed requires very different hardware from a system that runs a GUI.

Is Linux Truly Small Business Ready?

Filed under
Linux

earthweb.com: Nearly everyday we hear about how the modern Linux distributions are not only ready for the home user, they can even meet the growing demands of many small businesses as well. But rather than debating this point, I’ll examine the tools that would potentially mean that more small businesses would feel the confidence to take the open source plunge.

Ubuntu quality: or, “but what about my bug?”

Filed under
Ubuntu

mdzlog.wordpress: Leading up to the Ubuntu 8.10 release, Ubuntu developers and quality assurance engineers have been very busy sorting bugs, deciding what can and should be fixed for the final release, and what cannot. They make these decisions by estimating the importance of each bug, identifying whether it is a regression, assessing the risk of potential fixes, and by applying their best judgement.

Photoshop Express Is An Awesome Cloud App

Filed under
Software

What is a "cloud" application? It’s any application that has the power of a desktop (as in installed locally to your computer) app - except it’s all on the web. You probably use cloud apps already. But this is about Photoshop, except this one is free - and it’s still Photoshop.

How I Use Android: Android Central Editor Emeritus Phil Nickinson

In the meantime, I was able to convince Phil to step out of his metaphorical kitchen for a few minutes to chat about how he uses Android in his day-to-day life. This is a man who has seen and used practically every Android device over the past several years, after all -- and a fair number of apps and customization tools, to boot. So what devices does someone with so much knowledge carry around in his own trousers, and how does he make the most of what they have to offer? Enough with the suspense already. In his own words, this is how Phil Nickinson uses Android. Read more

There's no question that Samsung hit a home run with its Galaxy S7 line. We already think the smaller GS7 is the best phone under 5.2 inches, and the larger, curved-screen Galaxy S7 edge is our pick for the best phone under 5.7 inches. Why?
