What Does GPL3 Mean for the Enterprise?

Filed under

ServerWatch: The discussion and debate over the wording of GPL3 has crept into the mainstream tech news, which is a bit surprising. After all, it's just a software license. There are hundreds of software licenses, and in my opinion the ones that should be making the news and generating outrage are the standard EULAs (End-User License Agreements) that infest commercial, closed-sourced software.

The unemployment myth and open source

Dana Blankenhorn: Got work? If you program with open source chances are the answer to that question is yes.

Tux500 crash!

Filed under

Penguin Pete's: Congratulations to the Tux500 team. Along with your reckless destruction of Linux, your insane pressure on a driver to carry out your mad scheme has driven him to the breaking point. He's now hospitalized with back pain. Considering the reaction by helios and gang is to JOKE about it.

A Feisty Tale - Ubuntu Upgrade and Install Issues

Filed under

Beyond Caffeine: I have been an adamant Ubuntu supporter since I was ‘converted’ to it - but I have been quite disappointed with Feisty (AKA: Version 7.04). Not Feisty itself, but the process.

LogFS: A new way of thinking about flash filesystems

Filed under
Software Storage manufacturers are getting ready to start shipping solid state disks, and Linux-based devices like One Laptop per Child's XO and Intel's Classmate don't contain standard hard disks. To improve performance on the wide array of flash memory storage devices now available, project leader Jërn Engel has announced LogFS, a scalable filesystem specifically for flash devices.

Speed up application launches with prelink

Filed under

FOSSwire: Application start up times can be annoying if they are really really slow. Part of this latency is a process where before the executable can run, the OS needs to work out which libraries it needs to kick into action.

Hand Grenade Jounalists - We Have Inspired The Best (Tux500)

Helios: Mr. Chastain however, comes from a more refined environment. When he embraced the Linux Community and welcomed us into his endeavor, it was with the idea that we were a sincere, civilized group who were of one mind and focus. He was happy he could help us gain the attention we seek. Unfortunately, that is not what he experienced.

The Big Ol' Ubuntu Security Resource

Filed under

ITsecurity: If you've recently switched from Windows to the Linux distribution Ubuntu, you've probably experienced a decrease in spyware -- and malware in general -- on your system. But although Ubuntu is billed as the ultra-secure solution, you should know that even though Ubuntu's default install has its flaws, like every other operating system.

Remembering Progeny

LinuxJournal: Two weeks ago, I heard that Progeny Linux Systems of Indianapolis had closed its doors for the last time. The end was a long-time coming – in fact, six years longer than I predicted. All the same, I paused last week for a bit of nostalgia.

HowTos About ten years ago, the first DVD players shipped to the United States. After a slow start, the DVD has almost completely replaced video tapes and has become the de facto standard for the movie industry.

The Be Very Afraid Tour and a Word About that Patent Study

Filed under

Groklaw: When SCO started threatening to sue over Linux, it offered Linux users protection from lawsuits if they'd buy a SCOsource license. Some did. A smattering. Now Linux users are being offered a "patent peace" with Microsoft in a very similar way, only this time, it's supposedly patents backing up the threat. Or is it?

    As for today, latest version of systemd is v231, released in July 2016. This is the version that will be in Fedora 25 (to be GA in three weeks). That's quite a long time between releases for systemd – we used to have a new version every two weeks.

  • Putin’s standard for IoT is the new 1984
    As the Internet of Things gets more popular new questions arise: which protocol will become the open standard for supporting IoT networks across a huge array of devices around the world? Today we start hearing some answers from Russia. Igor Shchyogolev, former Minister of Telecommunications between 2008 and 2012, is thinking about a service that involves both an Internet card and a City card for citizen to use the Internet, hence named “Internet + City card” or just “Internet + City”. Long story short, Russia is contemplating the hypothesis of domestic regulation, rather than an intergovernmental agreement between major countries involved. Testament to this intent are Russian focus towards cryptographic protection and the plan of the country to substain such autarchics drives with national production of chips and direct control of both analog and digital TV frequencies.
