Reddit: I see a lot of criticism of GNOME devs, but never their own perspective or responses. Anyone know why?

Monday 10th of April 2017 12:36:47 PM

I've heard people say that GNOME devs:

  1. Think their users are stupid and don't know what's best for them.
  2. Are hostile to outside contributions and feedback (from the community, but also e.g. from Canonical).
  3. Use their position to push Red Hat technologies like systemd.
  4. Are in their own bubble and are very out of touch with the Linux ecosystem (one person recently said that a GNOME dev was not aware of the existence of XFCE; I'm not sure how that happens).

But I've never head GNOME devs reply to these criticisms (or any of the others). Does anyone know why that is, or where I could find them sticking up for themselves or explaining their take on their decisions or on whatever controversy?

Reddit: Upocalypse or Gnome vs KDE in the post Unity world - should KDE cooperate with YUnit?

Monday 10th of April 2017 11:33:55 AM

Some facts after the Upacalypse that happened on April 5th, 2017:

  1. Ubuntu's chief, Mark Shuttleworth, hates the most well known KDE developer (basically something like a KDE's spokesperson - even though KDE devs don't like to be called leaders) Jonathan Riddell and possible others like the idea creator of KDE Plasma - Aron Seigo

  2. He teamed up with Microsoft and now Redhat and Gnome - is probably willing to axe snap and maybe even sell the Ubuntu to Redhat over the years - because he is in bad financial situation when compared with 2011

  3. He bashed the FSF movement and community, is not willing to listen to people's criticism.

Should KDE team up with Yunit? What do you think? Both teams could implement their own vision while still trying to make the other DE compatible. Qt is much more advanced than GTK+ and Yunit and KDE both use Qt - so it seems like a logical step for me. What do you think?

TuxMachines: The Dell Precision 5520 is hobbled by Linux kernel 4.4

Monday 10th of April 2017 10:56:03 AM

Long story short, this is a fine laptop—and its hardware makes it a far better choice than the Dell XPS 13 for video encoding, compiling code, or other heavy computing tasks. But the OS it comes with is not optimized for the hardware. Hell, it’s not a stretch to say that the OS keeps this PC from being the workstation it's supposed to be. If anything, this PC is a case study in why PC makers who want to ship desktop Linux should pay attention to what they are doing before they push a product to market. The whole idea of buying a Linux laptop is to avoid these types of troubles, after all. In that respect, the Precision 5520 feels like a step back from the great platform we saw in the 2016 XPS 13.

TuxMachines: Ansible's rise is fueling Red Hat's reinvention

Monday 10th of April 2017 10:48:07 AM

Ask a Red Hat salesperson what is her favorite product to sell, and she’ll probably tell you OpenShift. Close on its heels, however, is Ansible, the open source automation platform Red Hat acquired in late 2015. Ansible has been on a tear of late, quickly rising to become the hottest devops tool in the market.

News about the migration to ODF in Taiwan

The migration of ODF keeps going in many different fields in Taiwan. Since 2016 the Ministry of Education in Taiwan entrusts the Information Service Association of Chinese Colleges (ISAC) and Software Liberty Association Taiwan (SLAT) with the task of promoting and migrating ODF/LibreOffice in universities in Taiwan. Among all the university, National Chi-Nan University (NCNU) is the earliest one, which started migrating LibreOffice since 2014 and has been working on it for three years. Then on April 20, 2017, a student from NCNU posted an article on Dcard forum saying that, according to her teacher, NCNU “Will not use Microsoft Office anymore due to the budget issue. LibreOffice will be used to replace Microsoft Office.” The student strongly questioned, “LibreOffice is totally unknown to everyone. I don’t know what the administrative staffs of our school are thinking about. Microsoft’s software is a very basic skill for enterprises to recruit people. This decision will make students lost their core competitiveness.” Read more
