Non-Constructive Linux Bashing Does Require A Kevlar Suit

Filed under
Linux

linuxloop.com: An article published in iTWire titled “Opinion: why Linux sucks at being user friendly” has been drawing a lot of attention recently. I am going to start by responding to each of the author’s points and then pointing out what I think the overall problem is.

Xubuntu 8.10 - Review

Filed under
Ubuntu

linux-hardcore.com: I like speed and stability. To be honest I find Gnome and Kde do not live up to my perception of speed, so I choose Xfce and Fluxbox.

Choosing Your Shell

Filed under
Linux

computingtech.blogspot: In most Linux systems, your default shell is the bash shell. There are many other shells, and you can activate a different one by simply typing the new shell’s command (ksh, tcsh, csh, sh, bash, and so forth) from the current shell.

Desktop Linux – Will It Ever Stick?

Filed under
Linux

popsci.com: About seven years ago, I tried to free myself from the oppression and misery of running Windows ME by installing Linux on my PC. Ever installed the Linux operating system? It’s not for the faint of heart. So, when it was recently reported that Linux-based netbooks are being returned at a rate four-times higher than their Windows-based brethren, I can’t say I was surprised.

OpenNMS 1.6.0: Birthing an Elephant

Filed under
Software

blogs.opennms.org: We were finally able to release the next stable version of OpenNMS, 1.6.0, at the end of October, but I wasn’t able to write about it. Getting a new stable release out can be painful. Anyway, here’s a short overview of all the work that went in to 1.6.0.

YaST releases independent of openSUSE releases?

Filed under
Software
SUSE

opensuse.org: YaST is one of the cornerstones of openSUSE. There never was a release of YaST independent of openSUSE. Even the versioning of YaST is tied to openSUSE. But in principle, YaST is a tool that can be used across distributions.

Why Microsoft is running scared of Linux

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

blogs.computerworld: Microsoft is frightened. Even Ballmer is telling users that they can skip Vista, which tells you everything you need to know about Vista's failure. In the past, Microsoft wouldn't have sweated this kind of flop. "What can users do?" they'd say. "Move to Linux or Macs? Ha!" That was then. This is now.

Also: Windows 7 Will Let Microsoft Track Your Every Move

Some kinda Linux mix

Filed under
Linux
Ubuntu

beranger.org: If there is a distro that supports well my hardware, then it doesn't hibernate, or the provided OpenOffice.org can't load the Antidote RX plugin, or some other software is missing, or it doesn't offer GNOME, or it doesn't provide updates in a timely manner, or its developers are Nazis when comes to a particular subject, or some of the software in the repositories is broken, or the distro is supported for only about 12-13-18 months, etc. etc. Yes, I've installed Ubuntu 8.10...

Can't we all just get a distro?

Filed under
Linux

neowin.net: Its no secret that open source is a viable alternative to pay for systems such as Vista and OSX; but why has it taken until now for laptop manufactures to start shipping Linux as an option?

openSUSE 11.1 Beta 4 Initial Impressions

Why do old bugs still exist?

Filed under

raiden.net: It's really begun to baffle me why certain bugs within the FOSS world haven't been fixed yet, or have taken so long to be fixed. A couple that come to mind come from recent experiences I've had either directly, or indirectly with these bugs.

  • LibRetro's Vulkan PlayStation PSX Renderer Released
    A few days back I wrote about a Vulkan renderer for a PlayStation emulator being worked on and now the code to that Vulkan renderer is publicly available. For those wanting to relive some PlayStation One games this week or just looking for a new test case for Vulkan drivers, the Vulkan renderer for the LibRetro Beetle/Mednafen PSX emulator is now available, months after the LibRetro folks made a Vulkan renderer for the Nintendo 64 emulator.
  • Etnaviv DRM Updates Submitted For Linux 4.10
    The Etnaviv DRM-Next pull request is not nearly as exciting as MSM getting Adreno 500 series support, a lot of Intel changes, or the numerous AMDGPU changes, but it's not bad either for a community-driven, reverse-engineered DRM driver for the Vivante graphics cores.
  • Mesa 12.0.4 Being Prepped For Ubuntu 16.10/16.04
    Ubuntu is preparing Mesa 12.0.4 for Ubuntu Xenial and Yakkety users. It's not as great as Mesa 13, but at least there are some important fixes back-ported. Mesa 12.0.4 is exciting for dozens of bug fixes, including the work to offer better RadeonSI performance. But with Mesa 12.0.4 you don't have the RADV Vulkan driver, OpenGL 4.5, or the other exciting Mesa 13 work.
