Reddit: OS Survey

Saturday 30th of April 2016 12:49:31 AM

Greetings, /r/Linux!

I am a student at the University of Tennessee, conducting a survey for one of my classes. The point of this survey is to find out why people use the OS that they do, and hopefully I can gather evidence to show what I found. I chose this sub among others because of its' users knowledge of their OS. I would greatly appreciate it if you took the time to fill out this survey.

You can take it here with Google Forms.

Thanks a lot!

LinuxInsider: Apple Drops CareKit on GitHub

Friday 29th of April 2016 10:25:25 PM
Apple on Thursday made its CareKit platform available through the GitHub open source community. CareKit joins two other previously released Apple frameworks for developing healthcare apps -- HealthKit and ResearchKit. It was designed to enable developers to create apps that give users a more active role in managing their health. Apps developed through CareKit will let people track symptoms and medications, and share the information with their doctors to get a better picture of their health, Apple said.

TuxMachines: GNOME privacy options give users even more desktop security

Friday 29th of April 2016 09:35:27 PM

GNOME is helping you to improve security by wiping away that breadcrumb trail. Instead of having to manage these issues in various places such as display settings, file manager, and location settings, the developers of GNOME put these security-centric settings in one location: the GNOME Privacy tool.

LXer: GNOME privacy options give users even more desktop security

Friday 29th of April 2016 09:30:06 PM
Security has never been more important. Any time you open a file, you leave a trail behind. When you delete files, they remain in the trash until you manually purge them. Your computer can even use certain services to help websites and apps pin down your location. And your machine's screen lock setup may not suit your needs. For anyone using a PC for business, these things can be crucial, as sensitive data comes in all forms.

TuxMachines: FRAND Is Not A Compliance Issue

Friday 29th of April 2016 09:12:28 PM

The European Commission has been persuaded by lobbyists to change its position on standards to permit the use of FRAND license terms for patents applicable to technologies within those standards. This is a massive mistake that will harm innovation by chilling open source community engagement.

TuxMachines: GNOME 3.21.1 released

Friday 29th of April 2016 08:46:04 PM

Hi GNOMEers!

development of the next GNOME release, 3.22, has started, and the
first snapshot, 3.21.1, is now available. This is a very early snapshot,
and not too much has landed yet; I expect that to change soon.

To compile GNOME 3.21.1, you can use the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2]
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).

TuxMachines: Casio Smart Outdoor Watch review: Android Wear climbs a mountain

Friday 29th of April 2016 08:39:32 PM

Casio deserves a lot of credit for reshaping Android Wear into an original and unique new product, something I wasn’t sure was possible. It overcomes many of the drawbacks of smartwatches while making total sense as a product in its category; if you’re in the market for a hiking watch that also works as a smartwatch, and you use an Android phone, I think you’ll be very happy with what Casio’s produced. If you’re not looking specifically for a hiking smartwatch? Maybe wait and see if Casio ever makes a G-Shock smartwatch, because this one really isn’t the sort of thing you’ll want to wear every day.

Reddit: I wrote a blog post about my experience with Linux that /r/linux might enjoy

Friday 29th of April 2016 08:31:40 PM

Hello everyone!

I'm going to keep this short because most of what I have to say is detailed in the blog post.

I've been using Linux for a while, and it's been a painfully blissful journey. I decided to write a post about it, and it was so much fun to take a trip down memory lane and write about the joys and pains of Linux. I wrote about the first time I tried Linux, all my failed attempts at things, and where I am now with Linux. I'd love to keep writing about my experience(s) with Linux, because I realized I'm more passionate about it than I thought, and it's a really, really fun topic to write about

Here's a link to the post, hosted at Medium. I didn't take it too seriously, so if it's too "casual," apologies.

The article is not really informative in any way, it's more a recount of my history with Linux, so if you were expecting to learn something from the post, sorry to disappoint.

Thanks! I'd love to hear feedback, as I plan to continue writing on this topic!

LXer: Master OpenStack with 5 new tutorials

Friday 29th of April 2016 06:38:53 PM
Returning from OpenStack Summit this week, I am reminded of just how vast the open source cloud ecosystem is and just how many different projects and concepts you need to be familiar with in order to succeed. Although, we're actually quite fortunate with the resources available for keeping up. In addition to the official documentation, many great educational tools are out there, from third party training and certification, to in-person events, and many community-contributed tutorials as well.read more

today's leftovers

  • Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu specs and features
    Canonical's Meizu line of smartphones may not mean a lot to UK readers, but the Pro 5 should help to raise its profile. Unlike its competitors the Meizu Pro 5 runs the Ubuntu operating system. This approach means it relies less on apps and more on an integrated experience. It's just as powerful as the Samsung Galaxy S6, but does that mean it's worth your cash?
  • What containers and unikernels can learn from Arduino and Raspberry Pi
    Currently, unikernels seem quite similar to building printed circuits. They require a lot of upfront investment to utilize and are very specialized, providing benefits for certain workloads. In the meantime containers are quite interesting even for conventional workloads and don't require as much investment. Typically an operations team should be able to port an application to containers, whereas it takes real re-engineering to port an application to unikernels and the industry is still not quite sure what workloads can be ported to unikernels.
  • Coming soon! First ever certification for open hardware
    At the Summit, OSHWA will launch the first ever (version 1) of the open source hardware certification, administered by OSHWA. This certification is designed to benefit at least two parts of the open source hardware community. First, it benefits purchasers of open source hardware by making it easy to identify truly open source hardware in the marketplace. Projects and products obtaining certification and displaying the certification logo clearly communicate a commonly agreed upon definition of openness with customers and users. While certification is not a condition for openness, obtaining certification is a way to make it clear to others that a given project is open source hardware.
  • 3 alternatives to resumes for hiring talent
    By 2020, there will be 1.4 million new computer science jobs but only 400,000 computer science students. The number of computer science jobs is growing twice as fast as the national average for job growth. Hiring is not a filtering problem anymore, it's a sourcing problem. We need to "sell" our companies and hire the most qualified people before our competitors do.
  • Open-source blueprint Pepperoni released for mobile development
    Named Pepperoni, the development team behind this open-source project has been working for more than 10 months trying to build apps and learning the best ways to do it using React Native. The company powering Pepperoni is Futurice, a software consulting company that creates digital services for its customers. Futurice is also behind the open-source social impact Spice Program, where it serves as advocate of open-source projects.
  • Install GrandCMS on an Ubuntu VPS
  • Install GLPI (IT and asset Managemet Software) on Ubuntu 16.04 Server

Leftovers: Software (Nginx, GitLab, Gammu)

  • Nginx 1.11 Web Server Released
    Version 1.11 of the open-source, high-performance Nginx web-server is now available. Nginx 1.11 presents a new transparent parameter for several options, support for loading multiple certificates of different types, various other security-related changes, a $proxy_protocol_port variable, some HTTP/2 changes, and more.
  • GitLab 8.8 released with Pipelines and .gitignore templates
    Fresh off our third GitLab Summit, this time in Austin, Texas, we are releasing our 54th consecutive release on the 22nd of the month. Sunday or not, we are not slowing our release schedule and are excited to show you what we're launching today. GitLab 8.8 is ready to go with GitLab CI improvements, performance enhancements, convenient templates, and more!
  • Gammu release day
    There has been some silence on the Gammu release front and it's time to change that. Today all Gammu, python-gammu and Wammu have been released. As you might guess all are bugfix releases.
