Serdar Yegulalp: I've been running Ubuntu Linux on my notebook, a Sony VAIO TX model, for some time now. I'm impressed with how stable it's been. But because getting used to Linux itself can be jarring for Windows folks, I decided not to just dive in and hope I'm able to swim.

Gutsy on Dell Latitude D830

Filed under

terminally-incoherent: I got my brand new Dell Latitude D830 laptop today, and the first thing I did with it was installing Gutsy. Dell was nice enough to partition the drive for me so I didn’t have to bother with resizing. This is possibly like the single most useful service they offer in their store.

Ubuntu and Studio Work

Filed under

meandubuntu.wordpress: One of the things I do from time to time is play in one of them-there rock ‘n roll bands. And, of course, I used various software under WinXP for pre-production and other such musical gyrations. I’d like to get my home studio back up and working in Ubuntu.

Yahoo! buy would give Microsoft ownership of open source e-mail, projects, code. Ugh

Filed under

Paula Rooney: Let’s forget about search for a moment, and Microsoft’s obvious need to buy a leading online company or face extinction. Microsoft’s buy of Yahoo would give the Redmond, Wash company control over a top open source e-mail company, open source projects and an open source infrastructure. So this deal would put Microsoft directly into the open source software business.

Also: What happens if Microsoft buys Yahoo?

Red Hat packagers dance around frivolous music game software patents

Filed under
Software Sadly, there’s nothing genuinely new about this story, but a recent discussion on the Fedora Games mailing list demonstrates the sort of chilling effect on innovation and impoverishment of the intellectual commons that occurs today because of a broken, outmoded US patent system and its misapplication to software. I’m at a loss for words to express how absurd these “patents” are.

Red Hat Summit

  • Red Hat Summit Advocates the Power of Participation
    Red Hat hosted its annual Red Hat Summit customer event June 28-30 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, with a theme of harnessing the power of participation. Once again, the DevNation developer event, which is the successor to JBoss World, was co-located with Red Hat Summit. For JBoss, 2016 is a particularly significant year as it marks 10 years since Red Hat acquired it. At DevNation, Red Hat announced the new JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 release, providing new cloud-enhanced capabilities for Red Hat's flagship middleware platform. JBoss is now also working to help enable Java for the container era, with the launch of the MicroProfile Project, an effort to optimize enterprise Java for a microservices architecture. Java wasn't the only focus of DevNation this year either, as Microsoft took center stage too, announcing the availability of its .NET Core for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the Red Hat Summit and DevNation 2016 events.

  • New technologies foster an open-source environment
