TuxMachines: Red Hat and Fedora: The Latest

Monday 11th of January 2016 05:29:20 PM
  • Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT): Analysts Take

    Wall Street research analysts are predicting that Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT) will post earnings per share of $0.31 when the firm next issues their quarterly results. According to the latest information, the firm should release the report on or around 2016-03-23. This is according to data compliled by Zack’s Research. Analysts and investors will be paying close attention to how the actual numbers compare with the estimates. A large surprise factor in either direction typically can lead to a significant swing in the stock price in the hours and days after the report. For the most recent quarter Red Hat, Inc. recorded a surprise factor of 3.33% as the actual EPS number was $0.01 off from the consensus estimate.

  • Red Hat Inc (RHT) Earns Buy Rating from SunTrust

    Red Hat Inc (NYSE:RHT)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reaffirmed by investment analysts at SunTrust in a research note issued to investors on Monday, Analyst Ratings Net reports. They currently have a $73.00 target price on the open-source software company’s stock. SunTrust’s price target suggests a potential downside of 7.77% from the company’s previous close.

  • Archived-At Email Header From Mailman 3 Lists

    By now most Fedora email lists have been migrated to Mailman3. One little (but killer) new feature that I recently discovered was that Mailman3 includes the RFC 5064 Archived-At header in the emails.

    This is a feature I have wanted for a really long time; to be able to find an email in your Inbox and copy and paste a link to anyone without having to find the message in the online archive is going to save a lot of time and decrease some latency when chatting on IRC or some other form of real time communication.

TuxMachines: Leftovers: Ubuntu and Derivatives

Monday 11th of January 2016 05:28:42 PM
  • Canonical: One Billion People "Benefit from" Ubuntu Linux

    Ubuntu Linux has more than one billion users -- or at least people who "benefit" from it, whether they know it or not -- according to a recent statement from a Canonical executive about how many people actually run its open source operating system.

    Dustin Kirkland, who works on Ubuntu Product and Strategy for Canonical, said in a blog post that "more people use Ubuntu than anyone actually knows." That language seems to be an admission that Canonical actually has relatively little idea how many people run Ubuntu, and Kirkland offered few hard statistics.

  • Latest Firefox 43.0.4 Now Available for All Ubuntu OSes

    Canonical has announced that the latest Firefox 43.0.4 version has been made available in the repositories for the users of Ubuntu 15.10, Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

  • Linux Mint 17.3 “Rosa” KDE Screenshot Tour

    Linux Mint 17.3 “Rosa” KDE was released over the weekend, and it brings a ton of updates and various other changes for the operating system. We now take a closer look at the OS in a quick screenshot tour.

    Linux Mint 17.3 “Rosa” KDE is still based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, which means that it still uses the old KDE SC implementation, and it’s one of the few distros that still do. This was to be expected and the new Linux Mint 18.x that will launch in a few months’ time will get the latest one, but for the time being, we can get to enjoy and say goodbye to the old KDE.

Reddit: What scripts do you guys use?

Monday 11th of January 2016 05:49:08 AM

What kind of scripts do you guys use on your machines for personal use. Things you use for convenience or even just nifty and interesting effects.

One example, I have a simple script that moves all of my download files to the proper directories, such as videos, documents etc. Then I have it as a cron job, so my downloads folder is clean.

Just curious what other suggestions you could pose to me.

  • The Best Graphics Card Brands For NVIDIA/AMD GPUs As A Linux Consumer?
    One of the most frequent topics I'm emailed about is any brand recommendations among NVIDIA and AMD AIB partners for graphics cards. For Linux users, is there a particular brand preference for graphics cards? The short story is, no, there isn't one particular brand when selecting either a GeForce or Radeon graphics card that a Linux gamer/enthusiast should go with over another AIB partner. Over the past 12 years of running Phoronix, there has been no single AIB partner that superbly stands out compared to the rest when it comes to graphics card AIB partner brands like ASUS, Zotac, HIS, MSI, etc. They all work under Linux, rarely the AIB differences extend beyond the heatsink/cooler and any default clock speed differences, and I haven't seen one that's over-the-top crazy about Linux. I also haven't seen any major partner consistently put the Tux logo or other Linux markings on their product packaging, let alone incorporate any Linux drivers onto their CD/DVD driver media.
