Reddit: What's the point of Ubuntu now that it's dropped Unity?

Sunday 29th of October 2017 01:38:32 AM

Ubuntu is built using a 6+ month old snapshot of unstable Debian packages. Ubuntu now defaults to the GNOME desktop. Debian defaults to the GNOME desktop (though like other distributions they have multiple options instead of GNOME).

With Ubuntu you get a release every 6 months, and a new LTS version every 2 years. With Debian you get an LTS release around every 2 years (but only "when ready/stable"), but you can also follow a rolling-release version (release+1, aka 'testing'), which still receives security updates and is treated with priority.

What's the value add for Ubuntu now? A firewall wrapper for iptables? AppArmor installed by default? Why do you choose Ubuntu over Debian?

TuxMachines: Kubuntu Devs Need Your Help to Test KDE Plasma 5.8.8 LTS on Kubuntu 16.04 LTS

Sunday 29th of October 2017 12:32:39 AM

They recently put up a testing backports repository for Kubuntu 16.04 LTS and they now need your help to install those packages containing the KDE Plasma 5.8.8 LTS desktop environment and Krita 3.3.1 digital painting app, and report any issues you might encounter.

At the moment, the Kubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) repositories contain the KDE Plasma 5.8.7 LTS and Krita 3.2.1 packages, so installing the versions prepared in the testing backports PPA will overwrite any previous ones.

TuxMachines: Latest Exton|OS Light Release Rebases the Linux OS on Ubuntu 17.10, Linux 4.13

Sunday 29th of October 2017 12:10:19 AM

Exton|OS Light Live DVD Build 170918 is, in fact, one of the first GNU/Linux distributions to have been rebased on Ubuntu 17.10, which was officially released on October 19, 2017, as the first Ubuntu release in seven years to replace the Unity user interface with the GNOME 3 desktop environment.

However, Exton|OS Light doesn't use GNOME, but, instead, it deploys the ultra lightweight and low on resources Openbox window manager, which the developer customized to look as modern as possible. Not to mention that Exton|OS Light ships with only a minimum of packages pre-installed.

OSS Leftovers

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
