Taking the plunge

Filed under
Linux

For as much as I talk up Openbox, and as much as I distro-hop and tinker with desktop environments, I always kept one machine with a straight Xubuntu 6.06.1 installation on it. But today I decided it was time for change. So I blanked the system drive, set it up as a speed-tweaked Edgy system, and set it loose.

Filed under
Ubuntu

Project ToPaZ is the collection of blue-sky ideas and more serious plans that people have thought up for the as-of-now mythical Three Point Zero (ToPaZ) release of GNOME. The best part of ToPaZ, however, is the very fact that it doesn't exist. So, we are all allowed to dream up our own vision of what it would be like. So here goes. Presenting the topyli Non-Interface, where people, documents and events are first class objects.

Reviews

Not too long ago, I got a posting on knolinux asking me to take a look at a distro called Myah OS, that typically is pretty close to the bottom of the top 100. It currently sits around 76, but Saturn was pretty persistent in his emails that I would like what I see. Well, the first couple of go's at it didn't go so well.

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.
  • How Red Hat is tailoring OpenStack to fit … everyone
    Even though there have been no major changes announced to the OpenStack platform of late, it was still one of the most talked about subjects at this year’s Red Hat Summit. Red Hat plays a significant role in the development of the platform and is very proud of its contribution to the community.
  • New technologies foster an open-source environment
