Reddit: Applications that need (new) GUI's

Sunday 12th of June 2016 06:26:19 PM

I am an application developer and I'm looking for something new to develop. I was wondering if:

  • there are any command-line applications you would like to see a GUI for?
  • there are any existing applications you would like to see a new GUI for? (or old applications that need a new GUI)
  • there are any Windows GUI applications that don't have a decent alternative on Linux?

Reddit: Obtaining secure boot medium?

Sunday 12th of June 2016 05:54:25 PM

I just uninstalled gummiboot with the assumption that systemd shipped with systemd-boot (ugh, really dumb mistake). This being my only laptop, it poses the difficult problem of getting a new boot medium. How should I go about getting a boot medium with a recovery image that I can be reasonably confident isn't tampered with? My main concern is something like BadUSB that can't be caught with a simple checksum of the image on a second device.

Sunday 12th of June 2016 05:50:15 PM

I've been on a Linux desktop only for ages, at least at home, anyone here care to share what their favorite Linux desktop is. I find Lubuntu is a minimalist desktop that does everything I want, browsing, video etc ...

TuxMachines: The State of Steam Machines in June 2016

Sunday 12th of June 2016 04:26:41 PM
  • The State of Steam Machines in June 2016

    While this article may sound like an answer to the recent pieces seen on Ars, or PCWorld, regarding how poorly the Steam Machines have done in the past 6 months, this could not be further from the truth, since I had this article as draft since May and only decided to finalize it recently using the most recent data available following the disclosure of Valve and the 500 000 Steam Controllers sold. So, this one will try to answer the question “How are the Steam Machines doing, 7 months later?“.

  • Death Story Video Game

    For this installment of the Linux Crowd, I’m checking out a video game. I’ve long been an avid gamer and I couldn’t be happier with the deluge of Linux games that have hit our hungry desktops. To see more and more games get funded on Kickstarter and Indiegogo that support GNU/Linux is truly heartening. Aside from the usual gadget fare over in crowdfunding land, I thought I’d take some time and cover one that crossed my desk (er…screen).

  • 7 Best IRC Clients for Linux

    An IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client is a program that a user can install on their computer and it sends and receives messages to and from an IRC server. It simply connects you to a global network of IRC servers and enables one-on-one and group communication.

    There are still many users of IRC out there for one reason or the other, though considered an old fashion way of online communication. But leaving the talk of it being relevant or not to users around the world.

  • 10 Best Free Linux Terminal Recorders

    Most users fear the command line. However, it holds real power and versatility. Commands issued from a shell enable system administrators a quick and easy way to update, configure and repair a system. The benefits of the command line are not only confined to system administration. The ability to transverse the file system quickly, give more information about files and directories, automate tasks, bring together the power of multiple console tools in a single command line, and run shell scripts are just a few examples of how the command line can offer a potent, multifarious toolbox.

  • Software Release: fwknop-2.6.9
  • Substance Painter 2.1 Is Here

  • Linux Users Left Stunned As Nautilus ADDS a New Feature

    We’re all used to hearing about features GNOME has retired, moved, or outright dropped from Nautilus (aka ‘Files’), the GNOME file manager.

    Pop a cushion on the floor to break your jaw crashing from the following news: for the release of GNOME 3.22 later this year GNOME has actually added a new feature!

    I’m being a little facetious, of course. But news of this feature will please the power users among you who’ve been a little put off by the application’s recent …streamlining.

  • Chrome 53 Should Be Blazing Fast

    Chrome 52 Beta may have just been released, but I'm already looking forward to Chrome 53 for very significant performance improvements!

    Google engineers have been using the Motion Mark web benchmark for making some improvements to the Chrome GPU pipeline. They've made around a 47% improvement in the speed of Chrome for these common benchmarks while for some particular tests they are multiple times faster.

  • Firefox 48 finally enables Electrolysis for multi-process goodness
  • Why Firefox will continue to lose market share

    Mozilla Firefox is a great browser. Not everyone may agree with me on this but that is fine and expected. Firefox is the browser that gives users the most control over their browsing experience. It has the strongest add-on ecosystem of the three, and is backed by an organization that for the most part seems to be on the user's side of things when it comes to rights and such.

TuxMachines: 2016 Python Language Summit

Sunday 12th of June 2016 03:03:08 PM
  • The 2016 Python Language Summit
  • Gilectomy

    Python's (in)famous global interpreter lock (GIL), which effectively serializes multi-threaded access to the interpreter (thus hampering concurrency using threads), has long been seen as something that Python could do without. But there are both technical and political hurdles to clear before the GIL can be removed. Larry Hastings presented his thoughts and progress on doing a "gilectomy" to the CPython interpreter at the 2016 Python Language Summit.

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers. Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.
