Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 Shines Bright

Filed under
Ubuntu

linuxplanet.com: Canonical released Ubuntu 9.10 in various forms last week including the Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) edition. UNR has been around since Ubuntu 8.04 (see Mark Shuttleworth's blog for a good summary of UNR) and has taken on some pretty stiff competition of late from Moblin. Enquiring minds want to know which version is better for my netbook?

Open Source: More than a License

Filed under
OSS

ostatic.com/blog: Has the terminology finally evolved in the debate over "who's open source?" It would seem so. After years of haggling over the essence of open source, free software or other monikers, Simon Phipps gets right to the point in "A Remarkable Reversal" - his critique of Richard Stallman's joint letter to the EC regarding Oracle and MySQL.

Another Protocol Bites The Dust

Security

links.org: For the last 6 weeks or so, a bunch of us have been working on a really serious issue in SSL. In short, a man-in-the-middle can use SSL renegotiation to inject an arbitrary prefix into any SSL session, undetected by either end.

My Linux Gaming Experience

Filed under
Gaming

jeffhoogland.blogspot: Arguably gaming is the one place in which Linux is sorely lacking. Very few titles release with a native installer for this platform and as such many say gaming is impossible on Linux. This is just not true.

KDE makes me happy

Filed under
KDE

celettu.wordpress: I’ll be honest, I’m surprising myself by not returning to Openbox. I’m still running Chakra with KDE, and I still love it. It needs a couple extra seconds to boot, but afterwards it feels just as fast as Openbox.

dissociatedpress.net: Typically Novell has created the artwork for the openSUSE DVDs, but this time around we had some really interesting and creative input from openSUSE contributors.

Too Much For Too Litl?

Filed under

Hardware

informationweek.com/blog: A Boston-based startup named Litl is taking a big risk: they're betting people will go for a netbook that sports a Linux-based OS and focuses on Web-/network-based productivity (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). The risk is in the pricetag:

The trough of disillusionment for Ubuntu?

blogs.gnome.org: Reading this blog entry on Linux Magazine, the thought occurred to me that Ubuntu is making its way nicely along the path that new projects have travelled for many years. The Hype Cycle.

linux.com: Anyone using Linux (or any operating system for that matter) should know about the OpenOffice.org office suite. But when you really start getting down to business, you will find there are features tucked away in this software that you may not have known existed.

terminally-incoherent.com: Recently a friend of mine approached me with a weird question: how to install Windows on a machine without a CD or Floppy drive. I was intrigued. The obvious question here was “why?” “Why don’t you just keep Ubuntu?” I asked him.

Distributions *are* the strength of Linux

Filed under
Linux

blog.flameeyes.eu: Some people think that no operating system has any need for distributions, but one of the thing that impress most the users who switch is, in many cases (at least that I could look at myself) the presence of distributions and the ability to install almost any software by simply looking it up in the package manager.

Jolicloud - Distro Review

Filed under
Linux

jeffhoogland.blogspot: With the recent popularity netbooks have experienced in the last two years we have seen a slew of Linux distros released gear specifically for these tiny screens. For the last couple of weeks I have had my Asus EEE PC booting an upcoming netbook orientated distro called Jolicloud.

igneousquill.net: The open source community is, in my experience, a fairly friendly place for the most part. Seriously. Only rarely do I run into serious jerks in the FOSS crowd. When I do, though, the circumstances usually follow a pattern.

eWEEK at 25: Open Source Has Proven a Remarkably Fertile Platform

Filed under
OSS

eweek.com: PC Week's (now eWEEK's) birth year—1984—was a busy one for technology. One platform that began to take shape at that time was focused not on hardware or software but on licensing. Richard Stallman quit his job at MIT to start the GNU project and the open-source model has since driven much innovation in enterprise technology.

maximumpc.com: Although most Linux users rely on pre-built Linux distros and customize their software configuration after installation, there is nothing quite like having a Linux distro that was custom-designed to your specifications.

    Most people consider a college education the key to future success, but for many students, the cost is insurmountable. The growing open educational resource (OER) movement is attempting to address this problem by providing a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, while at the same time empowering students and educators in innovative ways. One of the leaders in this movement is Robin DeRosa, a professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

Linux 4.10 To Linux 4.15 Kernel Benchmarks

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git. With this Broadwell-era Core i7 5600U laptop with 8GB RAM, HD Graphics, and 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD with Ubuntu 17.10 x86_64, the Linux 4.10 through 4.15 Git mainline kernels were benchmarked. Each one was tested "out of the box" and the kernel builds were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel archive. Read more
