In short, here is a non-exhaustive […]Continue reading...The post What is good audio editing software on Linux appeared first on Xmodulo.No related FAQ.

HP’s ‘The Machine’ & the Future of Linux

Monday 15th of December 2014 01:24:45 PM
If all goes according to plan, in June of 2015 HP plans to release a new operating system they’re calling Linux++. Before we start jumping up and down and putting on our party hats, we should know that this is not a new Linux distro being designed by HP to be featured on a new line of laptops. Although based on Linux and Android, this won’t even be an operating system at all in the sense that mortals such as I generally use the term. Most of us won’t be downloading and installing it. If we do, we won’t be using it as a drop-in replacement for Mint, Fedora or any of our other favorite desktop distros.

Non-Linux FOSS: Don't Type All Those Words!

Monday 15th of December 2014 04:07:12 AM
We've mentioned Autokey as a great tool for text replacement in real time on Linux. Thankfully, there's an option for Windows users that actually is even more powerful than Autokey! AutoHotkey is a similarly named application that runs strictly under Windows.

Tanglu 2.0 Screenshot Tour

Monday 15th of December 2014 01:15:39 AM
We are glad to announce the availability of the second release of Tanglu, code name 'Bartholomea'. This release contains a large amount of updated packages, and ships with the latest release of KDE 4 and GNOME. Tanglu 2 ships with two options to install it: Debian Installer (d-i) and our own live-installer. We recommend to use Debian Installer ('Install Tanglu' option on the live CD boot menu), because a lot of testing went into it and it does a much better job compared to the live installer, which will be replaced with Tanglu 3. The KDE flavor of Tanglu received bug-fix updates for the Plasma workspaces and contains new versions of the KDE applications.

Hell yes Apple should dump Google in iOS search!

Monday 15th of December 2014 12:01:55 AM
Apple has much to consider in this decision, but I think they realize that the days of needing Google for search have already come to an end. Search results have become more or less a comparable experience across different search engines, and Google’s money is pocket change to Apple. There’s just nothing that Google has that Apple really needs at this point.

Magical Open Source Music Workstations

Sunday 14th of December 2014 02:25:55 PM
Aaeon launched two Mini-ITX boards powered by Intel Bay Trail SoCs, and featuring up to three video ports, one or two GbE ports, PCIe expansion, and more. We missed Aaeon’s Atom E3800 based “EMB-BT1? Mini-ITX motherboard when it was announced earlier this year, so we are including it here as we cover two newly released Atom and Celeron based 6.7 x 6.7-inch Mini-ITX SBCs announced by Aaeon this week. The new “EMB-BT2? and somewhat lower-powered “EMB-BT4? will both ship later this month with Fedora Linux support at unstated prices. Applications are said to include panel PCs, slim PCs, kiosks, and PoS devices.

Sunday 14th of December 2014 12:31:33 PM
After Tuesday’s awesomely successful launch of Fedora 21, this Five Things in Fedora This Week covers a few questions that I’ve been asked a lot, by the press and by users who haven’t been following Fedora development closely. I hope this will clear up some of the concerns, and as always I’m happy to discuss further in comments, email, IRC, social media, or in person.

Leaked videos, screenshots reveal an HTC One running Android Lollipop

No, you won’t get this gift in time for Christmas, but perhaps seeing an HTC One running Lollipop may make the wait slightly less painful. A batch of videos and screenshots show HTC’s flagship with the newest build of Android, though of course it’s merged with the Sense 6.0 user interface (the HTC One currently runs Sense 5.0). We got a small hint of how Lollipop looks on the One in November, but this leak lays out what the entire operating system makeover looks in clearer detail. Read more

The winning Linux kernel live patch: All of the above

Life's choices often amount to one of two options: Linux or Windows? Android or iOS? Kgraft or Kpatch? That last pair consists of the two major contenders for the technology Linux could use for live kernel patches. Now a winner is in, and it amounts to all of the above. According to a post on the official Linux kernel developer's mailing list, a kernel patching system that works with both Kgraft and Kpatch and uses "core functionality abstracted out of [those] already existing implementations" has been proposed as an addition to the Linux 3.20 kernel.

UNIX Industry Banks on Linux Strategies

Struggling UNIX server makers are strengthening their Linux strategy in line with the open-source application environment. The move is aimed at maintaining remaining customers, since users are increasingly abandoning UNIX servers. However, it is receiving a lukewarm response from the market. According to industry sources on Dec. 22, server vendors such as IBM and HP are concentrating on the development of products so that the Linux operating system and related applications can be used as UNIX servers.
