What does the Qualcomm and Microsoft partnership mean for linux?

We're about to have an influx of cheap, long life laptops running on ARM, but made to run windows

You guys think they'll be completely locked down and won't run any other OS?

Will they flourish with linux and lead to much more arm support?

TuxMachines: Why the last thing open source needs is more corporate oversight

Monday 19th of June 2017 07:19:36 PM

Get that? Open source is all about developers, and developers speak code, not corporate. This is why so many vanity foundations, set up as a facade for corporations to control code but appear not to, don't end up succeeding. To succeed, open source needs to be about code, not the whims of a corporate sugar daddy.

In short, open source continues to do amazingly well precisely because open source review boards aren't stunting its growth. It's thriving even as corporations can't figure out efficient ways to monetize it directly. That's the point. It's always been a way for developers to get stuff done with minimal corporate bureaucracy. It's time to celebrate that and not continue trying to shove it into a corporate cubicle.

Reddit: Mate 16.2 messed up

Monday 19th of June 2017 06:50:10 PM

Hi, I have just upgraded Mate from version 12 to version 16.2. I'm no more able to set background, text, selection colors and so on, because there isn't the corresponding tab unlike the previous version. So my dark theme isn't properly working, causing also some troubles to menu displaying (cursor hover on buttons/menus/etc. doesn't cause any highligthing). I'm using Debian 9 (Stretch), so the repos aren't updated to the last Mate version. Has this bug been fixed? How can I do?

Reddit: DIY music / media streaming server recommendations?

Monday 19th of June 2017 06:19:46 PM

Hi!

Yesterday I finished ripping my entire music CD collection and then decided it would be a good idea to be able to stream that music to my smartphone. Thing is that streaming FLACs over the mobile data connection would cost me much more than it cost me to acquire the CD collection in the first place.

So I started thinking of first transcoding it to OGG / AAC and then streaming it to my phone. I figured there are already ready-made solutions that people might use so hence I made this thread to get acquainted with the different solutions.

Thanks in advance!

TuxMachines: Why Open Source will Overtake Proprietary Software by 2020

Monday 19th of June 2017 06:12:07 PM

Is proprietary software dead? Maybe not entirely, but pretty soon, its place in the enterprise will be greatly diminished due to the rapid adoption of innovative open source alternatives. While proprietary tools often boast small, yet stable, customer bases, open source software can claim passionate, loyal followings that only keep growing.

We have several sys admins and we want to know what each one does. They already have their own accounts and they sudo into a user with admin privileges to administer 3rd party services and folders. They don't have root access.

  • Eight years since first release and still no usable theme?
    Well, let me be frank. Ever since gtk-3.0 I've been skeptical of it, especially of the theming aspect. In gtk-2 we had (and still have) many themes ranging from trash to excellent, almost every kind of taste could have been satisfied. Not so in gtk-3. First issue is constant changes to theming API, meaning that despite there being hundreds of themes, only handful of them actually work right :( And among them, I still have yet to find one that would work on my fairly usual 15,6″ laptop screen with 1366×768 px resolution. Basicaly I have two issues.

  • Honda shuts down factory after finding NSA-derived Wcry in its networks
    The WCry ransomware worm has struck again, this time prompting Honda Company to halt production in one of its Japan-based factories after finding infections in a broad swath of its computer networks, according to media reports. The automaker shut down its Sayama plant northwest of Tokyo on Monday after finding that WCry had affected networks across Japan, North America, Europe, China, and other regions, Reuters reported Wednesday. Discovery of the infection came on Sunday, more than five weeks after the onset of the NSA-derived ransomware worm, which struck an estimated 727,000 computers in 90 countries. The mass outbreak was quickly contained through a major stroke of good luck. A security researcher largely acting out of curiosity registered a mysterious domain name contained in the WCry code that acted as a global kill switch that immediately halted the self-replicating attack.
