Should KDE close all bugs in Bugzilla?

Filed under
KDE

bramschoenmakers.nl: At the time of this writing, we have 15210 open bugs and 13336 open wishes. The past week, 367 bugs were submitted and 294 bugs were closed, and this growth is to be seen every week. Unfortunately there's not enough manpower to cope with this. We need to find a solution or we'll drown in this bug swarm.

Review: Asus Eee laptop PC

Filed under
Hardware

absolutegadget.com: We at Absolute Gadget are as happy as the proverbial Larry when our phones, MP3 players and general gadgety stuff gets smaller with each iteration. That’s why it’s nice to see Asus apply some common sense, in the form of its teeny and affordable Eee PC.

Filed under
Software

FOSSwire: Everybody likes to know when they have mail. It’s become a routine to get up in the morning and check before you go to work or school. Later throughout the day, most people don’t check it as often. This is where mail notifiers come in.

Vista to Ubuntu (100%)

Filed under
Ubuntu

luckycala.wordpress: I had enough with eating crap with Vista. My last line of patience warned off when I happened to wait about 5 seconds when changing from one MS Doc file to another and also happened that I was running with time to finish a project report. No, I’m not running on 256 ram, it’s 1 GB.

The ASUS Eee Linux PC from the outside in

Filed under
Hardware

iTWire: I have one. I’m just one in ... well, quite a few thousand, really – but nevertheless, their supply has been surpassed by the demand. Yes, I’m talking about the ASUS Eee PC, the diminutive priced highly popular subnotebook which has brought Linux to the masses. Here are my complete first impressions and experiences, from the box through power on.

Emacs: undying hatred

Filed under
Software

briancarper.net: I spent a good six hours today using Emacs. It's by far one of the most infuriating pieces of software I've ever used.

Paludis, Gentoo and Ciaran McCreesh uncensored

Filed under
Interviews

lab.obsethryl.eu: A lot of seasoned GNU/Linux users prefer using Gentoo in production, mainly because of Portage. Despite that, Portage does have a series of issues that hinder its further development; one solution that can substitute Portage and offer a viable and far more robust alternative is Paludis.

Trolltech and KDE collaborate on Phonon

liquidat: Trolltech and KDE work together for years now: the Trolltech developers are open to KDE’s suggestions and needs, and KDE itself is a big testing framework for Trolltech’s Qt. Now this cooperation went a step further: Trolltech and KDE 4 announced that both will work together on KDE 4’s Phonon in the future.

Puppy Linux 3.0.1: King of the Seamonkeys

Filed under
Linux

techiemoe: Puppy Linux is one of several lightweight distributions I've used in the past, and I remember being quite impressed. It is with much disappointment that I find this latest release of Puppy no more useful than Damn Small Linux when it comes to practical, offline concerns. Allow me to expand on that.

Filed under
Linux

linuxlove: Linux services are basically programs that start at boot time to provide certain features and services (Apache, the web server for example). After installation, every Linux distribution provides a list of enabled services. In this post, I’ll try to explain as good as I can, most services you’ll see on a Linux distribution.

johntaber.com: . In the early days Linux may have been a drag on my businesses, diverting time away from making money - today I consider using Linux and Open Source as a competitive advantage. We now do things faster, better, cheaper.

Back in the fold

Filed under
SUSE

labyrinth.org: So a couple months ago I mentioned that I was running Fedora again as my primary desktop due to some problems I was having with OpenSUSE 10.3 But that I would try it again after a couple months hoping that patches will have addressed my problems. Well here we are a couple months later and I’ve installed OpenSUSE 10.3 on my primary AMD64 machine. This time through things worked the way I had expected them two a few months ago.

Ukufisa? or is it True Love?

Filed under
Ubuntu

lumpyscorner.com: I am in love. Not the typical, usual, I "met her at the club and she swept me off my feet" love. No this was far from that. I have seen this apple of my eye around for a long while. I thought nothing of her at first. However, for many a years I kept hearing about her.

Good ole Gentoo. Where art thou?

Filed under
Gentoo

blog.mindlesstechie.net: I remember when I first started using Gentoo (back in the Gentoo 1.4 days), the community activity was just amazing. Each and every day or week, there was always something new and exciting going on in the Gentoo community.

Debian GNU/Linux on a Sony VAIO SZ680

Filed under
Linux

jonbernard.blogspot: I just acquired a Sony VAIO SZ680 and I felt like sharing my experience getting Debian installed on this thing. I wouldn't call it a "walk in the park" by any means, so hopefully someone else will find this useful.

What Windows Does Well

Filed under
Linux

geekfromkansas.com: The Linux community does not understand that computer users, as a rule, really don’t care about the operating system. They just want it to do its job and stay out of the way. Any real involvement with it makes them nervous. That description fits perhaps 97 or 98 percent of users.

The Licensing and Compliance Lab interviews AJ Jordon of gplenforced.org

So basically Bradley Kuhn gave a talk at FOSDEM '17 about GPL enforcement and I was like, wow, it sucks how many companies and people think that enforcing the GPL is a bad idea. I mean, if you disagree with copyleft that's fine (though I personally would argue with that position), but then you should use a suitable license. Like MIT. The very idea that we shouldn't enforce the GPL just doesn't make sense to me because it suggests that the text of the license is watery and unimportant. I don't know about you, but when I say I want my programs to respect users' freedom, I mean it. So GPL enforcement is important. It seemed to me that there are probably a lot of developers out there who want to support GPL enforcement but don't have a good way to voice that support. gplenforced.org is essentially a quick and dirty hack I wrote to make that dead-simple.
