TuxMachines: End of the m0n0wall project

Sunday 15th of February 2015 07:03:54 PM

on this day 12 years ago, I have released the first version of m0n0wall to the public. In theory, one could still run that version - pb1 it was called - on a suitably old PC and use it to control the Internet access of a small LAN (not that it would be recommended security-wise). However, the world keeps turning, and while m0n0wall has made an effort to keep up, there are now better solutions available and under active development.

TuxMachines: The Staging Pull For Linux 3.20 Has A Lot Of Changes All Over The Place

Sunday 15th of February 2015 06:59:33 PM

The latest pull requests sent in for the Linux 3.20 kernel are the various subsystems maintained by Greg Kroah-Hartman. The changes for the USB drivers, char/misc, driver core, staging, and TTY/serial aren't too jaw-dropping, but for staging at least is the usual heavy churn between kernel cycles.

TuxMachines: 5 Reasons To Use Linux Mint And Not Ubuntu

Sunday 15th of February 2015 06:52:15 PM

On the surface there isn't much difference between Linux Mint and Ubuntu as Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu (except for Linux Mint Debian Edition) and apart from the desktop environment and default applications there isn't really a difference.

In this article I am going to list 5 reasons why you would choose Linux Mint over Ubuntu. Now I am well aware that Ubuntu users are going to come back and say that there are loads of reasons to use Ubuntu over Linux Mint and so the counterargument to this list will be made available later in the week.

Reddit: Should we start moving away from static themes in desktop environments?

Sunday 15th of February 2015 05:57:08 PM

By static themes I mean the way themes are as of current in desktops like GNOME, XFCE, and Cinnamon. Each theme requires to be in a folder with config files/settings and images. I think we have to start moving more to how Windows 7 does theming, in the sense that we can have sliders to change the color or add a background to panels, window borders, highlighting, etc. We already have some of these things such as lxappearance but its rather limited. I don't know I just think this is something that could further help push desktop linux. What do you think?

Phoronix: Linux 3.19, 3.20/4.0 Doesn't Do Much For Intel HD 5500 Performance

Sunday 15th of February 2015 04:37:39 PM
Yesterday I ran some benchmarks from the new Core i3 Broadwell NUC to see how the latest Mesa Git affects the OpenGL performance for the Core i3 5010U chip with HD Graphics 5500. Today I'm complementing that testing to see if the latest Linux kernel Git makes any difference for this low-end, low-power Broadwell chip...

At long last, the first Ubuntu phones are here. It's been more than two years since Canonical first showed off its Linux-based mobile platform, and fans have been clamoring for consumer devices ever since.
