Gentoo and Funtoo Linux Users Can Now Enjoy the GNOME Desktop Without systemd

Filed under
Gentoo

We have recently stumbled upon a new project on GitHub, called GNOME Without Systemd, which promises to deliver a systemd-free experience of the GNOME desktop environment to Gentoo and Funtoo Linux users.

The GNOME Without Systemd project, which is, in fact, a collection of useful information on how to install GNOME without the systemd init system, saw its initial commit this past weekend, on April 16, 2016. You may want to know that it appears to have been put together by Dantrell B., a contributor to the Gentoo Linux and Gentoo Linux operating systems.

  • Google has doubled its bounty for a Chromebook hack to $100,000

    Google doubled the bounty it will pay for a successful exploit of its Chromebook laptop to $100,000, sweetening the pot in hopes of drawing more attention from security researchers.

    The larger reward is intended for someone who finds a persistent compromise of a Chromebook in guest mode, according to Google's security blog on Monday.

  • Google's Bug Bounty for a Chromebook Hack Rises to $100,000

    We've reported a few times on bug bounties--cash prizes offered by open source communities to anyone who finds key software bugs--ranging from bounties offered by Google (for the Chrome browser) and Mozilla. This open method of discovering security vulnerabilities has been embraced at Google, especially. In fact, Google has offered up as much as $1 million to people who identify key vulnerabilities in the Chrome browser.

Gentoo Ought to be About Choice

Filed under
Gentoo

“Gentoo is about choice.” We’ve said it so often that it seems like we just don’t bother to say it any more. However, with some of the recent conflicts on the lists (which I’ve contributed to) and indeed across the FOSS community at large, I think this is a message that is worth repeating…

Ok, bare with me because I’m going to talk about systemd. This post isn’t really about systemd, but it would probably not be nearly as important in its absence. So, we need to talk about why I’m bringing this up.

A Grand Experiment

The latest debacle over the "forced" upgrade to Windows 10 and Apple's increasingly locked-in ecosystem has got me thinking. Do I really need to use a proprietary operating system to get work done? And while I'm at it, do I need to use commercial cloud services to store my data? I've always used Linux since the first time I tried installing Slackware in the mid-90s. In 1998 we were the first national TV show to install Linux live (Red Hat). And I've often advocated Ubuntu to people with older computers. I usually have at least one computer running Linux around, in the past couple of years Dell XPS laptops have been great choices. And a couple of months ago I bought a 17" Oryx laptop from System76, an Ubuntu system integrator, for use in studio. But as time went by, even Ubuntu began to seem too commercial to me, and I've migrated to community supported Debian testing and the Arch-based Antergos distros for everything. (i use Antergos on my Oryx on the shows.) Read more Also: Microsoft lays off remaining handful of Microsoft Press staff
