TuxMachines: Why nobody's made a successful Linux-based phone yet

Tuesday 5th of September 2017 06:38:06 PM

Remember the Ubuntu Phone? Probably not. Why? Because no matter how hard Canonical worked on the device, no matter how much of their resources they threw at it (at the expense of the desktop that made them famous), they simply couldn't get it to work. It wasn't only because the platform was destined to fail out of the gate (the very idea of Scopes was the wrong way to go), but that they couldn't get the backing of a major market. Instead, they were relegated to underpowered hardware crafted by unknown OEMs. Under normal circumstances, that would have been fine. After all, at one point the likes of OnePlus, Huawai, and Miezu were all unknown. But couple that obscurity with an operating system that further hobbled the hardware and you have the makings for absolute failure.

Reddit: [Themes] Is there any interest in a 'red yellow green' theme? I'd like to make one, but have never made any themes.

Tuesday 5th of September 2017 04:55:24 PM

The other theme reddits are not very active so I really want to post here. I'd like some help making an Enlightenment theme in the "rasta" style, and any help would be appreciated. I've got the following resource to get me started:

I think I'll give it a go, but would like to know if there may be a better place to ask for assistance in theme creation.

LXer: What is edge computing?

Tuesday 5th of September 2017 03:16:24 PM
Cloud computing has dominated IT discussions for the last two decades, particularly since Amazon popularized the term in 2006 with the release of its Elastic Compute Cloud. In its simplest form, cloud computing is the centralization of computing services to take advantage of a shared data center infrastructure and the economy of scale to reduce costs.read more

Reddit: Ubuntu MATE to bring "locally integrated" HUD menu to apps, is this the right direction to go?

Tuesday 5th of September 2017 02:17:49 PM

I came across this OMGUbuntu article today and found a surprising thing about Ubuntu MATE. I've been a MATE user since a long time only because of its simplicity - It doesn't try to clog the RAM with a bunch of useless bells and whistles like Unity/GNOME/KDE/etc. do.

But with a locally integrated HUD, it seems like MATE is also going in the direction of the other heavy-weights, so I'm thinking about switching to XFCE or something else. Thoughts?

Linux 4.14-rc2

I'm back to my usual Sunday release schedule, and rc2 is out there in all the normal places. This was a fairly usual rc2, with a very quiet beginning of the week, and then most changes came in on Friday afternoon and Saturday (with the last few ones showing up Sunday morning). Normally I tend to dislike how that pushes most of my work into the weekend, but this time I took advantage of it, spending the quiet part of last week diving instead. Anyway, the only unusual thing worth noting here is that the security subsystem pull request that came in during the merge window got rejected due to problems, and so rc2 ends up with most of that security pull having been merged in independent pieces instead.

Manjaro Linux Phasing out i686 (32bit) Support

In a not very surprising move by the Manjaro Linux developers, a blog post was made by Philip, the Lead Developer of the popular distribution based off Arch Linux, On Sept. 23 that reveals that 32-bit support will be phased out. In his announcement, Philip says, “Due to the decreasing popularity of i686 among the developers and the community, we have decided to phase out the support of this architecture. The decision means that v17.0.3 ISO will be the last that allows to install 32 bit Manjaro Linux. September and October will be our deprecation period, during which i686 will be still receiving upgraded packages. Starting from November 2017, packaging will no longer require that from maintainers, effectively making i686 unsupported.” Read more

Korora 26 'Bloat' Fedora-based Linux distro available for download -- now 64-bit only

Fedora is my favorite Linux distribution, but I don't always use it. Sometimes I opt for an operating system that is based on it depending on my needs at the moment. Called "Korora," it adds tweaks, repositories, codecs, and packages that aren't found in the normal Fedora operating system. As a result, Korora deviates from Red Hat's strict FOSS focus -- one of the most endearing things about Fedora. While you can add all of these things to Fedora manually, Korora can save you time by doing the work for you. Read more

BackSlash Linux Olaf

While using BackSlash, I had two serious concerns. The first was with desktop performance. The Plasma-based desktop was not as responsive as I'm used to, in either test environment. Often times disabling effects or file indexing will improve the situation, but the desktop still lagged a bit for me. My other issue was the program crashes I experienced. The Discover software manager crashed on me several times, WPS crashed on start-up the first time on both machines, I lost the settings panel once along with my changes in progress. These problems make me think BackSlash's design may be appealing to newcomers, but I have concerns with the environment's stability. Down the road, once the developers have a chance to iron out some issues and polish the interface, I think BackSlash might do well targeting former macOS users, much the same way Zorin OS tries to appeal to former Windows users. But first, I think the distribution needs to stabilize a bit and squash lingering stability bugs. Read more
