  • Official Ubuntu Flavor Mythbuntu Linux Is Dead. What About My TV Shows?
  • Mythbuntu Linux Is No More, the Distribution Has Been Officially Discontinued

    Earlier today, November 5, 2016, the team behind the Mythbuntu GNU/Linux distribution sadly announced that the project has been discontinued effective immediately and no new releases will be made.

    Mythbuntu was an operating system based on the widely-used Ubuntu Linux distro and built around the MythTV free and open source digital video recorder (DVR) project. It was an official Ubuntu flavor and used Xfce4 as default desktop environment. The first release of the OS was back when Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) was announced, and the last one was Mythbuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus).

  • Mythbuntu: So Long and Thanks for All the Fish

    Mythbuntu as a separate distribution will cease to exist. We will take the necessary steps to pull Mythbuntu specific packages from the repositories (17.04 and later) unless someone steps up to take these packages over. MythTV packages in the official repositories and the Mythbuntu PPA will continue to be available and updated at their current rate.

Ubuntu Touch OTA-14 to Introduce New Task Manager with Wallpaper and App Icons

Filed under
Ubuntu

One of our readers informs us that the upcoming Ubuntu Touch OTA-14 software update for supported Ubuntu Phone and Ubuntu Tablet devices will introduce a new task manager that supports wallpaper and app icons.

It's been one and a half months since Canonical released the OTA-13 version of its Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system, and the development of the OTA-14 update has been rather slow during all this time. Those brave enough to use the rc-proposed channel were fortunate to get an early taste of what's coming to the Ubuntu mobile OS.

With Ubuntu Core 16 Canonical looks to embed itself in the IoT

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu Core 16 is released today. Otherwise known as Snappy, it is a pared-back version of the Ubuntu Linux operating system (OS) that's designed for IoT use cases.

On a press call, Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth explained that one key difference between Core 16 and its predecessor is the way the software is distributed. On installing software in Core 15 the individual files were spread out all over the disk, as happens with a desktop OS. In Core 16 it remains as a blob.

"In Ubuntu Core 16 we keep all of the software as compressed and signed files," Shuttleworth said. This both takes up less disk space and is also more secure, he added.

  • Kubuntu 16.10 - obey and not destroy

    The times changed, and my best friend is now Xubuntu 16.04, whereas my latest attempts to try Kubuntu back in 2011 and 2012 were not so nice.

    I tried more recent versions of this operating system when I got orders for DVDs through the BuyLinuxCDs.co.uk site, but they impressed me so little that I didn’t bother to write anything about them.

    Kubuntu 16.10 was released few weeks ago, and I decided to give it a go. The results were more impressive this time.

  • 5 Reasons Why Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak Is Worth a Look

    The latest version of the most popular Linux distribution is here, and it’s called Ubuntu 16.10. This release comes six months after its predecessor. The user-friendly desktop doesn’t offer any substantial new features this time around. Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, views the existing experience as largely complete.

  • Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak - Cue in Benny Hill music

    Benny Hill's music makes everything better. Fact. Now, I most strongly recommend that you hit Yakety Sax on Youtube, and let it play for the duration of this review. Your reading experience may be improved. Anyhow, it is time to test Ubuntu again. It's only been six month since the rather underwhelming Xerus LTS, and only a few days since I tested it the second time around, with only marginal improvements.

    I am really angry, because I feel that the Linux desktop is dying, and Canonical is slowly spearheading this effort, the same way it once led Linux out of the basement and into the mainstream awareness. But let's see what gives. Maybe Yakkety Yak is a good release. Maybe it will behave nicely on my G50 box. Let us.

Ultimate Linux on the Desktop

Over the past couple of years I have set out to create the ultimate Linux on the desktop experience for myself. Obviously everyone who runs Linux has their own opinions on things. What this post will outline is my ultimate Linux on the desktop experience. So just remember that before you get your panties in a knot on HackerNews because you live and die by Xmonad (I live and die by i3, fight me). First, you should already know that I run everything on my laptop in containers. I outlined this in my posts about Docker Containers on the Desktop and Runc Containers on the Desktop.

Dedoimedo interviews: DistroWatch

I don't there's much for me to add. Jesse provided a very detailed drilldown into what DistroWatch is, what it does, and most importantly, how you can help, whether you're a reader or a distro developer. Getting involved may be intimidating, but it also has its rewards. And there's potential for blooming tech writers to spread their wings, too. Anyhow, I'd like to thank Jesse, introspect on our uncanny pseudo-genetic similarity, and go back to plotting and hatching additional stories, reviews and interviews. To wit, if you have any ideas or recommendations, or if you crave some spotlight yourself, feel free to contact me. WARP 9, engage. Read more

GoboLinux: A Linux Distribution With New Filesystem Hierarchy

GoboLinux introduces a lot of new ideas and designs into the Linux distributions world. Things like the filesystem hierarchy and the compiling scripts are amazing examples of what “modernizing” Linux distributions may really mean. However, the distribution wasn’t intended to be “user-friendly” or “ready-out-of-the-box”. Because of this, it can be said actually that the distribution manages to achieve its goals. An experianced user with a lot of time would definitely enjoy using and tweaking GoboLinux to fit his needs and learn in his way. Read more
