Review: Foresight Linux - When nature calls!

Filed under
Linux

softpedia: I am not a fan of RPM based Linux distributions anymore. However, my Linux experience started 7-8 years ago with Red Hat 6.2, then Red Hat 7, 8, 9, Mandriva 9.2, SUSE 9 and Fedora 3. I've settled on Fedora for two years, until Ubuntu.

debianadmin.com: There is an interesting class of programs: audioplayers. What we expected from them? Playing music. What is required for this? Codecs, simple interface, playlist, equalizer. May be themes and control from keyboard. Many things can be applied to it, but audioplayer must stay a-music-player. For this, spartanians and ancient-lovers remembers and likes simple yet powerful XMMS.

Since when is Dell Gutsy Gibbon not Ubuntu?

Filed under
Ubuntu

iTWire: The news that Dell has now released Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) on its boxes (and about time too!) has been tempered somewhat by a potential storm of controversy caused by a couple of software packages that come bundled with the Dell Linux PCs. The two bundled packages happen to be proprietary software. Is this going to be a problem?

Flock On Ubuntu Reviewed

Filed under
Software

OSWeekly: I have not taken a close look at Flock for some time, mainly because it felt like their focus was too much on picture clipping and the like. But after taking a look at the 0.9.1.3 release, anyone who does blogging or writing for a living is doing themselves a huge disservice by not using this browser - seriously.

Apple's Christmas gifts to open source

Filed under
Mac

Matt Asay: Apple gets a lot of grief for being a net pillager of open source. The company has adopted open-source software into critically important products, yet gives little in return (so the story goes). And yet the Mac gets a lot of love from the open-source crowd. Why? What has Apple done to deserve it?

Foolish Forecast: Red Hat in the Black

Filed under
Linux

Motley Fool: Longtime Linux platform leader Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) will don a fresh fedora on Thursday night to report its third-quarter 2008 results. Sales and gross margins are on the rise, but Red Hat keeps scaling up its operational staff, so the bottom-line results don't always follow suit.

Kernel Space: Linux, Graphics

  • Mux Controller Subsystem Proposed For Linux 4.12
    A new subsystem has been proposed for staging in the Linux 4.12 kernel. Peter Rosin has requested Greg KH pull in the mux controller subsystem for the Linux 4.12 kernel. He explained of this new subsystem, "This adds a new mux controller subsystem with an interface for accessing mux controllers, along with two drivers providing the interface (gpio and adg792) and two consumers (iio and i2c). This is done in such a way that several consumers can independently access the same mux controller if one controller controls several multiplexers, thus allowing sharing."
