TuxMachines: 10 beautiful Android Wear watch face packs

Monday 30th of March 2015 03:49:49 AM

Unlike a smartwatch, A high-quality traditional watch doesn't need to be recharged on a daily basis. Also, it will likely be perfectly useful decades after its purchase, while a smartwatch isn't likely to endure the tests of time very well. But can you change a classic watch's face? Nope, we don't think so.

The ability to personalize an Android Wear smartwatch is cool indeed, and the collection of third-party watch faces available at the Play Store is growing steadily. Some are functional and feature-packed, others aim to deliver the best visual experience. The 10 Android Wear watch face packs we have below belong to the latter category. Check them out!

TuxMachines: Asus ZenWatch review: a sophisticated-looking Android smartwatch

Friday 27th of March 2015 01:28:00 PM

The Asus ZenWatch is a surprise. It is comfortable, looks great and works well. The heart rate monitor is well suited to infrequent checks, and the screen is bright and can be clearly read in sunlight.

Having to charge it at least every two days is a drag, but almost every other smartwatch short of the Pebble suffers from the same drawback.

The always-on ambient display mode using the OLED screen makes it a very good watch for actually telling the time, which others have neglected.

Overall, the ZenWatch is easily one of the best Android Wear watches available and a solid contender for the incoming Apple Watch.

TuxMachines: Embedded Linux Keeps on Growing, IoT Next Big Win

Friday 27th of March 2015 11:29:22 AM

As I noted at the beginning of this year, open source has won, even if it's not finished. That's easy to show at the top end, since Linux currently runs 485 of the top 500 supercomputers in the world. But at the other end of the spectrum, data has been harder to come by. That makes a new post on reporting on the embedded sector particularly welcome. Here's the key finding.

Reddit: total noob, need help installing and running softether vpn client.

Friday 27th of March 2015 11:05:26 AM

Installed it on my Mint (Virtual box), with make command I managed to install it. But it seems to only work in terminal or something I am confused. I'd like a shortcut on desktop and GUI like I have on Windows.

Sorry if it's super dumb.

Also maybe some other simpler free VPN client for Linux?

Why the Open Source Stars Must Align

Open source projects like OpenStack, Docker, OPNFV and OpenDaylight are more supported and better funded than ever before. They mark a broader trend of large, active and well-resourced open source projects that are among the leaders in Big Data, cloud computing, operating systems and development practices. Open source has come a long way in 30 years – and its success marks a new era for the overall OSS community. But success does not come without potential pitfalls. One of the greatest obstacles to project success isn’t the proprietary competition – it’s the lack of communication between large open source projects like OpenStack and Docker. Read more

Myth Busting the Open-Source Cloud Part 1

On the contrary, open-source cloud computing products are designed from the outset with security in mind. For example, there are features such as identity management to monitor who has access to content, and data encryption to safeguard information while it’s at rest or in transit. Furthermore, open-source cloud software is peer-reviewed by community participants, leading to continuous improvements in the quality of security features and mechanisms. This community also monitors and rapidly discloses vulnerabilities and issues, and provides security updates to address them. Read more

What does an adult look like in an open source community?

You're no longer "just an adult." You're now trusted and looked to for opinions on how the community should grow. You're a community elder. You embody the history. You keep the history. You work together with other adults and elders to guide and make the community stronger. And to a certain extent, the community once again looks after you, just as it did in the first phase. Read more
