Fedora 10 Review

Linux Fedora 10 was officially released on Tuesday November 25, 2008. Since its release I have installed it on a number of machines and been running it as my full-time desktop.

Why do Windows programs suck so freaking much? (and what can they learn from Linux) Open Task Manager on any Windows computer and chances are there are a hundred processes even if you're just sitting idly on the desktop. What's with the obsession to constantly make crap run on startup? Let's look at some common offenders and how to cut them down to size.

XP vs. Ubuntu - Asthetics

Why is Linux THE FASTEST operating system today?

Filed under
Linux No doubt about it. Linux is the fastest operating system in use today. And you can have it all for free. Ever since its humble beginnings, written by a guy crazed with the bite of a charging penguin, Linux has improved by leaps and bounds. So why is Linux the fastest operating system?

Cool Command Line Apps for GNU/Linux and other Unix Systems

Filed under
Software Even though I am a strong advocate of learning as much as you can about using the command line, I admit I like my GUI a lot (and Compiz of course Smile ). The CLI can be really useful for repairing your system or just doing some task that takes far more clicks in the graphical interface.

Ubuntu and the ‘Average User’

Filed under
Ubuntu For years, free-software advocates have asserted that Linux is ready for the mainstream desktop. Critics have responded that, sure, Linux has come a long way since 1991, but it’s still not for ‘average users’. Until grandmothers can get an Ubuntu system up and running without having to hack a wireless driver or an xorg.conf file, we’re told, the Linux user base will remain limited.

  • Netflix Upgrades its Powerful "Chaos Monkey" Open Cloud Utility

  • Nextcloud Advances with Mobile Moves
    The extremely popular ownCloud open source file-sharing and storage platform for building private clouds has been much in the news lately. CTO and founder of ownCloud Frank Karlitschek resigned from the company a few months ago. His open letter announcing the move pointed to possible friction created as ownCloud moved forward as a commercial entity as opposed to a solely community focused, open source project. Karlitschek had a plan, though. He is now out with a fork of ownCloud called Nextcloud, and we've reported on strong signs that this cloud platform has a bright future. In recent months, the company has continued to advance Nextcloud. Along with Canonical and Western Digital, the partners have launched an Ubuntu Core Linux-based cloud storage and Internet of Things device called Nextcloud Box, which we covered here. Now, Nextcloud has moved forward with some updates to its mobile strategy. Here are details.
