A Mac User's Opinion of Linux

Filed under
Linux

linuxmigrante.blogspot: Now, some days ago, I was reading a post that compared Linux and Windows Vista/7 and I found among the comments one that caught my eye. I use OS X, but I'm familiar with both Windows and Linux.

Preview: Debian 6 "Squeeze" (Part 3: LXDE and Xfce)

Filed under
Linux

dasublogbyprashanth.blogspot: LXDE seems to be the new hot thing; to cater to users who need a lightweight distribution either out of necessity (older hardware, need to allocate as much memory as possible to applications without giving up a usable DE) or out of preference, pretty much every major distribution has begun to offer an LXDE edition.

GnuCash COULD be a Quickbooks killer

Filed under
Software

blogs.techrepublic.com: I am a certified Quickbooks technician. And, to be perfectly honest, Quickbooks stinks. When it works it’s great…but when it doesn’t work, it’s a NIGHTMARE. I want to be able to tell clients “Why yes, I do know of an alternative that is easy to use, reliable, and open source!”

Linux Kernel 4.15 Reached End of Life, Users Urged to Move to Linux 4.16 Now

Now, nearly three months and only eighteen maintenance updates later, the Linux 4.15 kernel series reached end of life and it will no longer receive support.

This Chart Shows How The Radeon RX 580 vs. GeForce GTX 1060 Now Compete Under Linux

It was just last year that open-source RadeonSI/RADV developers were trying to get the Radeon RX 580 "Polaris" GPU to be competitive with the GeForce GTX 1060 as it is under Windows given each GPU's capabilities. We've seen the RX 580 and GTX 1060 dancing under Linux the past few months and yesterday's 20-way GPU comparison with Rise of the Tomb Raider was quite significant -- perhaps most surprising being how well the RX 580 performed. Heck, just one or two years ago it was an accomplishment seeing any official Radeon driver support at-launch for new Linux game releases. So here are some extensive tests looking closer at the GTX 1060 vs. RX 580 battle in this latest Vulkan-powered Linux game port. Read more
