A little while back I wrote a blog post that seemed to inspire some people and ruffle the feathers of some others. It was designed as a conversation-starter for how we can re-energize leadership in Ubuntu.
When I kicked off the blog post, Elizabeth quite rightly gave me a bit of a kick in the spuds about not providing a place to have a discussion, so I amended the blog post to a link to this thread where I encourage your feedback and participation.
Rather unsurprisingly, there was some good feedback, before much of it started wandering off the point a little bit.
The Tizen based Samsung TV SDK 1.0 has been released today. This follows the beta that was previously released at the start of July.
The SDK provides developers with the tools they need to begin developing for the Tizen-based Samsung TV platform. The toolset includes an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and a Web Simulator for testing TV apps on a PC.
Unless you're a user of Ubuntu with Unity 7, you probably haven't heard much about Compiz in quite some time. However, some developers are looking to further revive its development but not everyone is in agreement.
There's been an uptick in bickering amongst developers on the Compiz mailing list lately. A controversial developer often involved in these fights, Scott Moreau, declared himself the maintainer of upstream 0.8 stable branches.
Reddit: Due to some unfortunate Circumstances I'm out of College with no degree. Are my chances of entry-level system admin completely shot?
I'm not going to go into details but it's nothing that would affect an employer's decision. Basically, I'm out of school with a ton of loans and no degree. My coursework is in Physics and Computer Science and I held an internship with the NASA Space Grant.
it was a small school with a VERY specific program, almost no credits will transfer my only chance is to rejump on their cycle in 2.5-3 years
But anyways, the point of my thread, I was offered a job as a laborer in a Power Plant. The hours suck, but the pay will keep my head above water. is there anything I can do with Linux Skills but NO degree to show for it?
you guys have saved my ass for years now in the terminal, need some advice outside the shell now :-/submitted by bamcomics

I have a really old Intel centrino dual core laptop that originally shipped with Vista. I now run Linux mint mate with compiz. There has been some lag with the computer so I upgraded from kernel 3.16 to 3.17 and have noticed an increase in the computer's performance. For curiosity is there any big differences in These versions?submitted by afallucco

The last PC-BSD release I reviewed was the 9.1 edition, and that was back in December 2012 (see PC-BSD 9.1 preview). That’s almost two years ago, But that’s because I’ve been very disappointed with subsequent releases after that, so I never bothered to write another review, though I was each testing each release privately.
Ugoos announced a “micro game console” spin-off of its Android-based quad-core Cortex-A17 UT3 media player, and released an Ubuntu 14.10 build for the UT3.
The Ugoos “G-box” micro game console appears to use the same design as the company’s Android-based, 4Kx4K ready UT3 media player, which sells for as low as $130. The G-box follows another similar, but OEM-focused UG-CX-998 media player with 4Kx2K resolution announced in September (see farther below).
The Heartbleed flaw that was first publicly disclosed in April of this year, was in some respects a black eye on the open-source community. Heartbleed is a flaw in the open-source OpenSSL cryptographic library that had wide ranging impact across the infrastructure of the Internet. In the aftermath of Heartbleed, a new effort emerged called the Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) to help fund developers wanting to improve security across critical open-source infrastructure technologies.
The Linux Foundation has announced that the JVC KENWOOD Corporation, Linaro and OpenSynergy are joining the Linux Foundation to collaborate on Automotive Grade Linux (AGL). This brings the total amount of companies working on AGL to forty six.
The AGL is a collaborative open source project developing a common, Linux-based software stack for the connected car. The members are committed to the goal of developing a common and open automotive platform for OEMs and suppliers to utilize, contribute to and build commercial products and technologies upon. The AGL reference model is based on Tizen.
In 2012, the Top 10 Linux Gift Guide set the upper limit at $500, and last year it dropped to $400. This year, the cut-off dips to $350, reflecting the ongoing price reductions in consumer electronics, as well as my not entirely successful attempt to live up to Mr. Money Moustache's guidelines for living on the cheap. (Click the Gallery link below to see a slide show and descriptions of the Top 10 Linux gifts.)
