Linux User & Developer: Discover jBilling and make managing invoices, payments and billing simple and stress-free
China’s next attempt at a mobile homegrown desktop operating system is slated for an October debut, according to state-run news agency Xinhua. China Operating System, abbreviated COS, will first appear on desktop computers, and later reach smartphones. We already caught a glimpse of the mobile version at the beginning of this year, and noted its strong resemblance to Android. However, Ni Guangnan of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, which makes COS, said it is not another Chinese Android skin. As for the upcoming desktop version, you’d be forgiven for being a bit skeptical. China has failed miserably at making its own operating systems in the past. But several factors have come together that could help Ni realize his dream of replacing domestic operating systems in the next one to two years.
LinuxVoice: Relive the golden majesty of the 80s with a little help from a marvel of the current decade.
This may seem like a strange question:-
In english, we have the grammatical terms, verb, subject , object , noun etc to describe the different functions of words in a phrase
Are there equivalents in linux?
When you run executables, scripts and java apps, what are the grammatical terms for each part of the call?
1:)an executable, 'ls' is called > ls -a -l
'ls' is the command and '-a -l' are the parameters.
2:) a python script, "test.py", is called > python test.py -f infile -o outfile
python is the command(?), "test.py" is a scriptfile and "-f infile -o outfile" are parameters.
3) a java jar file, "processFile.jar" is called: java -jar processFile.jar -f infile -o outfile
java is the command (??), processFile.jar is a jar file and "-f infile -o outfile" are parameters.
So is there a general term for the scriptfile/.jar part of the command? They are not really parameters or commands. You can't really call a .jar file a script, but it has a similar(ish) function to scriptfilessubmitted by CarpeColei

At the request of many Phoronix readers, here's our first tests of Apple's OS X 10.10 "Yosemite" operating system as we see how the OpenGL performance compares between it and Ubuntu Linux with an updated kernel and Mesa.
With OS X Yosemite still being in development stages, our testing of it is limited and will have out many benchmarks upon its official release, but for those that have been really curious, I ran some quick Intel graphics tests.
Im a way, the book will partly provide an alternative way to consume the content provided by KDE TechBase. Because of that, the HTML version of the book will integrate and cross-link with TechBase. The preferences of what kind of documentation should be in the book or on TechBase are not yet written in stone, and will probably develop over time. The beauty of Free Software is that it also does not matter much – the content is there and may be mixed and remixed as needed.
“It's time to revive our Fluxbox edition! Here is a first beta that is mostly untested for now, so feel free to try it out and post your findings.The Fluxbox edition is designed to bring a minimalist environment to your desktop. The default desktop layout is comprised only from the Fluxbox panel and the right click menu will bring up the Fluxbox menu, so it should be really light on resources. The file manager that is used is PCManFM.”
I’m happy to announce the release of a new version of my project libmygpo-qt. It again has been a while, over one year since the last release. And although it took so long, this release doesn’t include many new features, except one: support for building the library with Qt5.
Before I get into detail about this release, first let me tell you what libmygpo-qt is, because in my last post someone complained that it wasn’t clear enough from the post. So if you already know what it is, you can skip the next two paragraphs. To be able to explain what libmygpo-qt is, I first have to tell you about gpodder.net.
AMD's open-source OpenCL support has been lagging behind the proprietary drivers, but Bridgman says they're trying to improve upon that too. In particular, it seems they may try to open-source more of their proprietary OpenCL driver implementation. Bridgman said, "For OpenCL not sure yet -- we're trying to get more people working on it and open up more code from our proprietary implementation, so rate of progress should improve but I don't know how much yet."
