Will Linux Survive the Global Economic Meltdown?

Filed under
Linux

daniweb.com: While companies worldwide look for ways to reduce costs, shed dead weight from their labor resources and streamline their businesses, it makes me wonder if Linux will survive the global economic meltdown.

Learning is Childsplay

Filed under
Software

linuxjournal.com: After I finished my recent articles on Teaching with Tux and Learning with Gcompris, I received a couple of suggestions from readers that I take a look at Childsplay. I spent some time looking at Childsplay and if you have small children, I think you should too.

Filed under
Ubuntu

phoronix.com: Coming up in our forums was a testing request to compare the performance of Linux between using 32-bit, 32-bit PAE, and 64-bit kernels. We decided to compare the performance of the 32-bit, 32-bit PAE, and 64-bit kernels on a modern desktop system and here are the results.

Why can't we all just get along?

Filed under
OSS

linux-magazine.com: At the risk of sounding naive, I'm concerned about how members of the free and open source software (FOSS) community treat each other. No doubt in most parts of the community, people are getting things done while keeping civil. But, publicly, or when the big issues are raised, a sustained nastiness has crept into discussions over the last year or so.

10+ free, fast-booting Linux distros that aren't Chrome OS

Filed under
Linux

downloadsquad.com: Sure, Chrome OS has been all over the headlines since early December. But it might not run on your hardware and you're going to have to wait at least a year for the final version. Why bother waiting?

Open Source in 2010: Nine Predictions

Filed under
OSS

earthweb.com: Even though this is the end of the decade only for those who can't count, retrospectives seem more common than predictions in the last days of 2009. Or maybe, after a year of recession, all the pundits are nervous about the future.

Filed under
Software

ostatic.com/blog: Stellarium is a great astronomy application for helping you learn about the skies overhead, but it's aimed mainly at astronomy buffs and casual users. Nightshade is a newly-launched fork of Stellarium designed exclusively for use for planetarium, teaching, and educational settings.

Linux 2019

Filed under
Linux

blogs.computerworld.com: No matter how often I see it, I still can't get used to people typing into tables. Bad enough that people are always mumbling to themselves -- cut cells C3-C7, paste to D3-D7 -- but the constant drumming of fingers is just annoying. And please, don't get me started on people wearing iContact lens!

Run Linux Apps On Your Windows Machine the Easy Way

howtogeek.com: You might be interested in trying out Linux applications, but the idea of creating a dual boot system, using slow Live CDs, or setting up a VM doesn’t appeal to you. Today we take a look at andLinux which allows you to run Linux applications on your Windows computer.

Distro Review: Linux Mint 8

Filed under
Linux

danlynch.org/blog: Today I’d like to talk to you about Linux Mint 8, AKA Helena. I’ve said this many times before, but the codenames still sound a little tacky to me. The distro itself is anything but tacky though and it’s been one of my firm favourites in the past. How would this release stack up?

Poor review with heartwarming community response

Filed under
MDV

proyvind.net: I read this poor review of Mandriva Linux 2010 (the only poor review I’ve seen so far actually), which I got a bit provoked about, not that much because I’m taking things personal, but it’s rather more about stupid people pisses me off!

Linux on Netbooks - with Pictures

Mandriva 2010 thoughts

Filed under
MDV

linuxuser.co.uk: Mandriva, previously known as Mandrake, was always an interesting mainline GNU/Linux distribution to use, providing some superb server or desktop software. As far as quality is concerned, nothing much has changed since the Nineties, but as far as sophistication of the desktop is concerned, things have come a long way from those dark days.

Christmas wish: Distro hardware buyer’s guide

Filed under
Linux

blogs.gnome.org: As a long time free software user, every time I buy hardware I have the same decision paralysis. Will the graphics card be fully supported? Are the drivers stable? Will the on-board wifi, sound card, and the built-in webcam Just Work?

SuperOS: Like Ubuntu But Easier

Filed under
Ubuntu

beginlinux.com: One problem I run into a lot when recommending Ubuntu to complete Linux newbies is they aren't used to installing codecs or using the terminal when they want to play DVDs, MP3s and other file types. This is what has led me to Super Ubuntu or SuperOS as it's now called.

FSFE: ‘German public sector a digital laggard’

With their lacklustre approach to free software, German public services remain behind other European member states, says the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). When asked, the current governing parties’ say they support free software, but their statements are contradicted by the lack of action, the advocacy group says. In early September, the FSFE published its analysis of the free software policies put forward by the main political parties on the ballot, in preparation for Germany’s parliamentary elections on 24 September. This analysis (in German) is far more detailed than an earlier report generated by the Digital-O-Mat, a web portal set up to focus on political parties’ positions on 12 digital topics.
