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.

TuxMachines: Xfce Git Code With Docker, Spotify Web Player for Linux Discontinued, Languages for DevOps, and Linux Gaming

Monday 10th of April 2017 10:14:22 AM
  • Releases, releases, releases! Part 2

    Xfce – like many other open source projects – is not exactly following a test-driven development workflow. I would argue that we need a slight mindset change here plus we need some (standardized) infrastructure to make testing easier for people who want to get involved.

  • It's Now Easier Testing Out Xfce Git Code With Docker

    Xfce-test is a Xubuntu 17.04 based container image designed for Docker that makes it very easy to deploy some of the latest Xfce Git components.

  • Top 5 programming languages for DevOps

    I've been focused on infrastructure for the majority of my career, and the specific technical skills required have shifted over time. In this article, I'll lay out five of the top programming languages for DevOps, and the resources that have been most helpful for me as I've been adding those development skills to my infrastructure toolset.

    Knowing how to rack and stack servers isn't an in-demand skill at this stage. Most businesses aren't building physical datacenters. Rather, we're designing and building service capabilities that are hosted in public cloud environments. The infrastructure is configured, deployed, and managed through code. This is the heart of the DevOps movement—when an organization can define their infrastructure in lines of code, automating most (if not all) tasks in the datacenter becomes possible.

  • Pijul First Thoughts

    Given my interest in version control, a post on Pijul was pretty much inevitable. The thing I most wanted to understand was of course its conflict resolution algorithm. Unfortunately I don't know enough category theory for that, which is a novel problem to have at least. There also don't seem to exist explanations of how this algorithm works that don't rely on category theory, which is unfortunate. The documentation that exists for this tool is generally sparse, which is fine; it's new software, after all, and these are alpha releases.

    Fortunately, according to their blog, there's been a useful version released recently. So what follows are my thoughts on playing with that version (0.4.1).

    First important thing is that the Pijul repository is itself kept in pijul. There's a GitHub repository that has all the trappings of being an official mirror, but it looks to have stopped working when they switched the pijul repository off of darcs. To resolve the bootstrapping problem, I installed it with cargo instead, which took a short seven minutes to download and compile everything and dependencies. (Peeking behind my curtain slightly, I tried to write this post both Friday and yesterday, but was unable to do so because their hosting (Nest) was down.)

Linux Mint-using terror nerd awaits sentence for training Islamic State
