Datamining Launchpad bugs

Filed under
Ubuntu

lucas-nussbaum.net: One thing that really is annoying with Launchpad is its lack of interfaces with the outside world. No SOAP interface, no easy way to export all bugs. The only way to get all the bug data in a machine-parseable is to first fetch this URL, and then, for each bug number listed there to make another request.

The GPL v3 Watch List For June 6

Filed under
OSS

gpl3.blogspot: The year has gone by quite quickly since the GPL v3 was first released. We have just entered into the month of the release, and it is only 23 days until a complete year has passed. It doesn't seem like we have been tracking the GPL v3 and its derivatives for a year, but it is more believable when you look at the count.

A Few Problems With Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

codingexperiments.com: Since before the dawn of time, Linux users have argued over which distribution to use. But by far, Ubuntu, a massively popular Debian-based distribution, is the one most recommended by everybody. But under that famous shiny orange surgery coating, I believe lie some annoying problems.

On Gentoo Releases and stuff

Filed under
Gentoo

blog.i-no.de: When I got more involved with Gentoo, the release team was aiming to release the then-pending release (2007.1) in early December. Eventually, that date slipped time and again. It was decided to drop the entire release and do a new one (2008.0). Again, the dates kept slipping. Now, the question is why a release is slipping time and again.

The art of Linux

Filed under
Linux

brajeshwar.com: The existence of Linux is inevitable in the realm of LAMP based web development. It is more than incomplete to talk about LAMP without the operating system - Linux. Although Apache, mySQL and PHP/Python/Perl are equally capable of running over non-*nix machines too, Linux predominantly holds a larger share in terms of developers’ choice. Hence the acronym - LAMP. So, where lies the difference?

Version labeling is out of control

Filed under
Software

linux.com: Version numbering and labeling is next to meaningless. These days, versioning rarely gives an accurate idea of the state of development, except relative to other builds of the same project. It is simply a label that distinguishes one build from another.

The Next Frontier for Open Source

Filed under
OSS

Jim Zemlin: Open Source is still a disruptive idea. It has moved beyond that in server operating systems, of course, with Linux on 20% of servers shipped these days. That’s known as being “mainstream.” But the effects of open source development and business models continue to be heavily disruptive as they spread into new technology markets.

Giving Linux and LibreOffice a Try for Your Home Office

Running your home office on a tight budget? There's a way to get all of your software—operating system (OS), productivity suite, scores of applications—completely free. It'll cost you, but not in the way you might think. This life-changing alternative is Linux, which gives you more flexibility, more have-it-your-way customization, and more control than Windows or OS X users could ever dream of. I caution that it'll cost you because it's decidedly not for everyone. While it's far friendlier today than it was a year or even six months ago, Linux still requires you to invest, nay, enjoy some time spent setting up and tinkering with your PC.

Containers and Servers

  • What are Linux containers?

As organizations grapple with how best to make business decisions in the face of challenges from limited resources, both human and capital, and find the speed of competition rapidly advancing, they must look to not just new technologies but new paradigms in order to stay afloat. Many organizations are looking to Linux containers as a part of this solution.

Unrequited Microsoft, Red Hat in the Way, LinDoz

Christine Hall penned an opt-ed today saying that she remembers Microsoft's dirty tactics, tactics they still employ while professing love for Linux. The media can fawn all they want, but Hall will never trust them. Elsewhere, Jack Germain said LinDoz is a "smooth Windows-Cinnamon blend" and Jamie Watson had nice things to say about KaOS 2016.06. Mint 18 Cinnamon and MATE editions are planned for this week and Red Hat said "RHEL is getting in the way." Read more
