5 Reasons to Use CLI Over GUI

vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: First, I must say that using CLI is not always faster, not necessarily. There are tasks which can be done faster and easier using some GUI application rather than typing a whole bunch of commands. But, nevertheless, command line is still very powerful and it's more appropriate to use it for certain tasks.

Five Reasons Ubuntu Is the #1 Linux Distro

Filed under
Ubuntu

dawningvalley.com: Ubuntu is, according to DistroWatch, the #1 Linux distribution. That’s a huge feat in itself. However, once you realize that Ubuntu is only three and a half years old, the feat is much bigger. How did the Linux rookie beat out the nine-year-old Mandrake, the fourteen-year-old SUSE, or the fifteen-year-old Debian?

Ubuntu

blogbeebe.blogspot: I could spend the next hour of my personal time (and a lot of digital ink) listing in detail what has gone wrong over the last year, as I've migrated from Ubuntu 7.04 to Ubuntu 8.04.1. In fact, the Linux Haters Blog is surprisingly close to documenting most, if not all, of my gripes.

kevincarmony.blogspot: I've known Chris Pirillo for several years, and he's one of only a handful of people I follow on Twitter because he's ALWAYS got his pulse on the latest, coolest stuff. In following my blog, he was surprised to learn about some of the "weird stuff" that was going on with Linspire, so he invited me to his live chat room for an Interview.

KDE4: The MS Vista of Linux?

Filed under
KDE

theeternaluniverse.blogspot: Most people in Linux circles have heard the slogan: "Release Early, Release Often." This often translates to a rule that you make small software changes frequently instead of doing major overhauls that take a long time to get out the door. Two projects, recently, have strayed from the above rule: Microsoft Vista and KDE4.

Why Is So Hard for Windows Users to Understand That Linux Is Not Windows

Filed under
Linux

vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: This is just a rant (hopefully it will be regarded as pertinent and non-'laming') on why Windows users try Linux and return frustrated to Windows after several hours or days. I won't praise Linux and the way it works, I won't even compare and say 'here Linux is easier because ...', instead I have a few questions for all of you who blame Linux for not being and behaving like Windows.

Tough choices ahead for Red Hat?

weblog.infoworld.com: I missed Red Hat's fiscal 1Q09 release a few weeks ago, so I went back and read the transcript and dug into the numbers a little. Total revenue growth has averaged 31 percent/quarter since fiscal 1Q08. Surprisingly though, Sales & Marketing and R&D have grown 32 percent/quarter and 37 percent/quarter over the same period.

FreeBSD Finally Gets Mitigated For Spectre & Meltdown (and Hugs)

  • FreeBSD Finally Gets Mitigated For Spectre & Meltdown
    Landing in FreeBSD today was the mitigation work for the Meltdown and Spectre CPU vulnerabilities. It's taken a few more weeks longer than most of the Linux distributions to be re-worked for Spectre/Meltdown mitigation as well as DragonFlyBSD, but with FreeBSD Revision 329462 it appears their initial fixes are in place. There is Meltdown mitigation for Intel CPUs via a KPTI implementation similar to Linux, the Kernel Page Table Isolation. There is also a PCID (Process Context Identifier) optimization for Intel Westmere CPUs and newer, just as was also done on Linux.
