I am a visual learner. When I try to teach something, I naturally liketo use visual examples. That usually involves me working for hours tocreate flowcharts in Google Docs using the drawing program. Yes, itworks, but it's a very cumbersome way to create a flowchart. Thankfully,I recently discovered Lucidchart.

TuxMachines: Initial impressions of PCLinuxOS 2014.08

Wednesday 17th of September 2014 08:38:39 AM

I spend more time looking at the family trees of Linux distributions than I do looking at my own family tree. I find it interesting to see how distributions grow from their parent distribution, either acting as an extra layer of features which regularly re-bases itself or as a separate fork. New distributions usually tend to remain similar in most ways to their parent distro, using the same package manager and maintaining similar philosophies. When I look at the family trees of Linux distributions one project stands out more than others: PCLinuxOS.

TuxMachines: Speed or torque? Linux desktop vs. server distros

Wednesday 17th of September 2014 08:33:22 AM

So allow me to clarify: I believe the time has come when a major, dedicated, server-only Linux distribution is needed. This distribution does not maintain any desktop packages or dependencies -- and is not a distro that merely offers a different default package set for desktop and server use cases.

TuxMachines: Fedora Notifications, 0.3.0 Release

Wednesday 17th of September 2014 07:42:56 AM

Just as a heads up, a new release of the Fedora Notifications app (FMN) was deployed today (version 0.3.0).

Frontend Improvements
Negated Rules - Individual rules (associated with a filter) can now be negated. This means that you can now write a rule like: "forward me all messages mentioning my username except for meetbot messages and those secondary arch koji builds."

Disabled Filters - Filters can now be disabled instead of just deleted, thus letting you experiment with removing them before committing to giving them the boot.

Limited Info - The information on the "context" page is now successively revealed. Previously, when you first visited it, you were presented with an overwhelming amount of information and options. It was not at all obvious that you had to 'enable' a context first before you could receive messages. It was furthermore not obvious that even if you had it enabled, you still had to enter an irc nick or an email address in order for things to actually work. It now reveals each section as you complete the preceding ones, hopefully making things more intuitive -- it warns you that you need to be signed on to freenode and identified for the confirmation process to play out.

Truncated Names - Lastly and least, on the "context" page, rule names are no longer truncated with a ..., so you can more easily see the entirety of what each filter does.

Anyone who believes Google isn't "making a play" for desktop users isn't paying attention. In recent years, I've seen ChromeOS making quite a splash on the Google Chromebook. Exploding with popularity on sites such as, it looks as if ChromeOS could be unstoppable.

In this article, I'm going to look at ChromeOS as a concept to market, how it's affecting Linux adoption and whether or not it's a good/bad thing for the Linux community as a whole. Plus, I'll talk about the biggest issue of all and how no one is doing anything about it.

Bitcoin for FOSS Projects

There has been a growing interest among Free and Open Source Software ("FOSS") projects in the use of crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin and its myriad derivatives (hereinafter "Bitcoin").

This post provides some general guidance on the legal consequences of using such convertible virtual currency. Please note that different jurisdictions address the issues related to Bitcoin differently. The comments provided in this post are restricted to U.S. law. If you are uncertain of your legal obligations, contact the Software Freedom Law Center or seek other legal counsel. Read more
