As of writing, his contribution streak has lasted only two days, but his longest one – between the lead up to new year’s and the early weeks of January – lasted almost two weeks.

  • JOSE – JSON Object Signing and Encryption

    Federated Identity Management has become very widespread in past years – in addition to enterprise deployments a lot of popular web services allow users to carry their identity over multiple sites. Social networking sites especially are in a good position to drive the federated identity management, as they have both critical mass of users and the incentive to become an identity provider. As the users move away from a single device to using multiple portable devices, there is a constant pressure to make the federated identity protocols simpler (with respect to complexity), more user friendly (especially for developers) and easier to implement (on wide range of devices and platforms).

  • Why The Red Hat Story Can Only Get Better

    But, it turns out that I was a bit conservative with my estimates. And it also turns out that I did not give the OpenShift platform the respect it deserves. OpenShift is an open-source PaaS platform by Red Hat. Red Hat released fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2014 results that nicely beat analysts' top and bottom line expectations, powered by strong adoption of OpenStack and OpenShift.

KaOS 2015.04 is here -- Download the KDE-focused Linux distro now!

There are too many Linux distributions nowadays. Choice and variety is wonderful, but in this case, it spreads resources very thin. Linux-based operating systems might be further along by now if more developers came together to work on projects. For someone new to Linux, finding a distro can be a daunting task. Many of the releases are simply noise, making it hard to find the quality operating systems. KaOS is one of those quality operating systems. It is a wonderful Linux distribution that focuses on KDE. Quite frankly, if you are a KDE purist, this should be on your radar. To cerebrate the two-year anniversary of the distro, the team releases 2015.04.

Elementary OS Freya 0.3 review

Elementary OS is a Linux desktop distribution that’s being primed as a “fast and open replacement for Windows and OS X.” It’s safe to say that that’s the goal of every Linux distribution. Some distributions have, to a large extent, succeeded, while some are partially or completely misguided. Elementary OS, even though it’s still just at version 0.3, belongs to the first group. Some of the design decisions make it slightly painful to use, but as a unit, the distribution is moving in the right direction. Will it ever get to the point where it replaces Windows and OS X for all users? No, because there’ll always be those that love Windows and Mac OS X no matter what. And there are still applications that have no real alternatives in Linux. Read more

Evolving KDE: Lehman’s Laws of Software Evolution In The Community

The board of KDE eV has launched a new initiative to ensure that KDE remains awesome and relevant for the foreseeable future. Unlike previous approaches it is not a point-in-time solution, it is a continuous process of improvement. And it is a good thing. Previously, I have written/spoken a lot about the role of Brooks’ Law in the context of Free Software. Brooks’ Law teaches us to be careful about the management of growth in our communities. Especially treated in consideration with the grossly under appreciated Conway’s Law. There are, of course, other laws of Software Engineering that apply to Free Software development. Read more
