Commercial, Professional, and Community Open Source: Resolving the Naming Confusion

Filed under
OSS

riehle.org: As a researcher, imprecise naming bothers me. The general confusion around the terms commercial open source, professional open source, and community open source warrants closer analysis.

What mobile Linux is missing

Filed under
Linux

Dana Blankenhorn: While lots of people (including Paula) were ga-ga over the promise of mobile Linux as exhibited at Intel’s Developer Forum in Shanghai, I couldn’t help noticing that the devices shown were uglier than Bette Davis in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

A hard time with Ubuntu 8.04

Filed under
Ubuntu

blogbeebe.blogspot: It's still officially a beta at this point and I've been religiously applying the updates when they show up. Fortunately, this time around, none of the updates have forced me to reinstall Ubuntu like I had to the last time. But that still doesn't mean the adventuring is over. No, not by a long shot. Where do I start?

Firefox 3 vs. Safari 3

daringfireball.net: After a few weeks in the arms of Firefox 3 betas, I’ve returned to Safari as my daily browser. Unsurprisingly, it’s the interface that drove me back.

Deli Linux

Filed under
Linux

distasis.com: I've tried running Linux on and off on my home machines over the years. Being a programmer and not a network administrator, I've always found it difficult to get Linux to install. The distribution I settled on was Deli Linux. Some of the other small distributions I tried wouldn't even install or run on my machine.

The hidden world of Linux

Filed under
Linux

whyamistilltyping.wordpress: There are many great FOSS projects that utilise old PC hardware and give it a new lease of life. The best is desktop computing with various Linux distribution flavours like Mint, PCLinux, Ubuntu and countless others. In fact it is my considered belief that the best hardware to run Linux on is infact (almost) any machine that is at least 12 months old.

Blog of helios: In the past 3 years, I have had the opportunity to do hundreds of Linux system installs for new Linux Users.

Utilizing The Deskbar Applet to Make Your Life Easier

Filed under
Software

maketecheasier.com: One of the overlooked feature in Ubuntu Gutsy is the deskbar-applet found on the top panel. Being one of the best desktop search tool around, I am quite surprised that only few are fully utilizing it. The only reason that I can think of is either most people don’t know how to use it, or they don’t realize how powerful it is.

Filed under
Hardware

Carla Schroder: The Linux kernel is a restless beast, and must continally evolve and change. Especially in ways that mystify us poor end lusers. A recent wrinkle, as of kernel version 2.6.20, is changing the /dev names for ATA devices, so that all ATA and SCSI devices are named /dev/sd*. T

Fly the Linux Skies

Filed under

linuxtoday.com: Altimeters... lie. Yet for over a hundred years, these instruments were more than enough to get most aircraft safely from place to place.

Inspiring the Next Generation of Open Source

The Linux Foundation works through our projects, training and certification programs, events and more to bring people of all backgrounds into open source. We meet a lot of people, but find the drive and enthusiasm of some of our youngest community members to be especially infectious. In the past couple of months, we’ve invited 13-year-old algorithmist and cognitive developer Tanmay Bakshi, 11-year-old hacker and cybersecurity ambassador Reuben Paul, and 15-year-old programmer Keila Banks to speak at Linux Foundation conferences. In 2014 when he was 12, Zachary Dupont wrote a letter to his hero Linus Torvalds. We arranged for Zach to meet Linus–a visit that helped clinch his love for Linux. This year, Zach came to Open Source Summit in Los Angeles to catch up with Linus and let us know what he’s been up to. He’s kept busy with an internship at SAP and early acceptance to the Computer Networking and Digital Forensics program at the Delaware County Technical School. Read more

Debian and Ubuntu Leftovers

  • Debian package depicts 'Tux the penguin' with sheep in intimate ASCII
    A Debian software package containing an "ASCII representation of zoophilia" has been installed automatically on some users' machines. According to a bug report, Debian user Felicia Hummel installed a package called "cowsay", which turns text into ASCII art of cows (or other animals) with speech or thought balloons. But with default settings of "install suggests" enabled, a controversial second "recommends" package called "cowsay-off" was also installed.

  • Late Post For Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day 2017
    I am also very thankful for LaTeX2e and Tex Live. It has been a great thing to have to prepare devotional materials for church. I am thankful for the MOTU folks maintaining Gummi which is the editor I use on Xubuntu. Xubuntu is what I run on my laptop that goes many places with me. Tex Live is run both on the laptop and on the Raspberry Pi 2 at home.
