Tuesday 27th of March 2018 07:30:00 PM
This past weekend I posted some Linux 3.17 to Linux 4.16 kernel benchmarks using two older Intel hardware platforms and one of the most frequent requests to come in following that article were some AMD benchmarks looking at the Intel Linux performance going a ways back. Here are some test results from Linux 4.4 to 4.16 using an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X system.

Reddit: I am worried about Apple and Google in the Classroom

Tuesday 27th of March 2018 05:34:25 PM

With the announcement of Apple classroom and classkit today and similar offering from Google which exists already, I am worried about proprietary technologies controlling how schools are run. Apart from the dependency it creates on access hardware to be used ( everybody must have the hardware from one vendor), it also makes makes the schools hostage to the workflow. Once inside, they will be hard to get rid of. Additionally, the cost on schools and parents is not insignificant.

I feel there needs to be an open-source alternative to the Classroom suite so that schools are platform agnostic and even less fortunate schools and students have the same opportunities for success. I have not found any. Something turnkey, something that school IT is not shy about.

I care more about the freedom of choice more than anything else.

Reddit: ffmpeg transcoding disconnects after few seconds

Tuesday 27th of March 2018 05:01:42 PM

I spent days trying to me ffmpeg transcoding working with no luck . In short I'm trying to transcoding live TS stream to lower bitrate .

But FFmpeg fail even to download it to file . it stop after 12 Seconds . this is my command

ffmpeg -i -preset ultrafast me.ts

here is output

Terminal app appears in Chome OS Dev, hints at future Linux application support

Back in February, some commits to the Chromium codebase revealed that Chrome OS would soon run Linux applications using a container. While it has been possible for years to run Linux applications on top of Chrome OS using crouton, it's a hacky solution that only works in Developer Mode. Google's solution would presumably work better, and perhaps not require Dev Mode to be enabled. Read more

​What's the most popular Linux of them all?

Let's cut to the chase. Android is the most popular of all Linux distributions. Period. End of statement. But that's not the entire story. Still it must be said, according to StatCounter, Android is the most popular of all operating systems. By a score of 39.49 percent to 36.63 percent, Android beats out Windows for global personal device supremacy. Sorry Windows, you had a nice run, but between your smartphone failures and the PC decline, your day is done. But, setting Android aside, what's the most popular Linux? It's impossible to work that out. The website-based analysis tools, such as those used by StatCounter, NetMarketShare, and the Federal government's Digital Analytics Program (DAP), can't tell the difference between Fedora, openSUSE, and Ubuntu. DAP does give one insightful measurement the others sites don't give us. While not nearly as popular as Android, Chrome OS is more popular than all the other Linux-based desktops combined by a score, in April 2018, of 1.3 percent to 0.6 percent of end users. Read more
