Windows, Linux, thoughts

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

blog.freeside.fr: Almost 5 years have passed since I erased my Microsoft Windows partitions to switch to Mandriva Linux. However, I try to keep myself informed of what happens in the Windows world, just to be able to help relatives when they're in trouble. Yesterday, I had a Windows box to cure. Here's what I was painfully reminded:

The People Behind Mesa 3D

Filed under
Software

phoronix.com: Following our article looking at the state of X.Org (along with announcing the release of X Server 1.4.1), we proceeded to share the contributors behind the X Server. What we hadn't looked at in that analysis was the people and companies behind the work on Mesa 3D, or the OpenGL component used by X. In this article, however, we have these statistics to share.

The Groklaw effect hits Becta

Filed under
OSS

freesoftwaremagazine.com: Quite a long time ago (maybe in 2000), people started talking about the Slashdot effect. Being Slashdotted meant (and still means) that a truckload of computers online suddenly decide to access your site. The results on your servers used to be disastrous. I think I ought to attempt something brave: I would like to coin a new word: the Groklaw effect.

Can we advance open source by sacrificing software freedom?

Filed under
OSS

arstechnica.com: The relationship of mutual benefit that exists between mobile device makers and the open source development community on which they increasingly depend presents a unique paradox. Specifically, advancing the development of free software sometimes necessitates compromises that limit software freedom, particularly when it comes to providing open-source support for technologies like DRM.

Notes on the Future of GNOME: Problems and Questions

Filed under
Software

blogs.gnome.org/lucasr: Ok, now that I’ve already made my point about our great achievements, it’s time to talk about the big questions. People have different expectations and perspectives about GNOME and hence they define the “decadence” and, consequently, the possible solutions, in different ways.

Banshee: beyond the first looks

Filed under
Software

celettu.wordpress: I’ve seen a lot of articles lately about the release of Banshee 1.0, the Gnome music player “written in C# on the Mono platform using GNOME technologies.” I do get curious however when people claim that Banshee will replace Rhythmbox as the default Gnome media player on their system. I’ve used Rhythmbox. It’s pretty good. I was curious what Banshee had to offer.

Firefox 3 inflames the browser wars, but why should we care?

Filed under
Moz/FF

hydrapinion.com: To me, web browsers are like operating systems – the sooner we don’t have to care about them the better. The day they just sit in the background and let us do what we need to do, quickly and efficiently, will be a happy day indeed.

How Companies Can Make Linux A Success

Filed under
Linux

madpenguin.org: Realizing that "What if" articles tend to bring out the best and worst in people, I thought it was worth exploring this mindset again, just for kicks. In this piece, I want to explore what if the power players in the corporate Linux world actually bothered to make their interests in Linux an all or nothing type of game.

Now, as it prepares to go live with its third version, the open source project's leadership promises more innovation.

OSS Leftovers

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

    Users of the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling operating system can now update their computers to the latest and greatest Firefox Quantum web browser.
  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
