LinuxInsider: Torvalds Says Yes to the Desktop

Tuesday 26th of August 2014 12:54:42 AM
It was just a few short weeks ago that we here in the Linux blogosphere were rehashing the open source world's documentation dilemma -- one of those perennial topics bloggers love to resurrect whenever there appears to be a lull in the conversation. At the time, alert readers may recall, Linux Girl compared the topic to the ongoing "Year of Linux on the Desktop" debate -- another favorite that just keeps coming back for more. Well guess what? That one's now back too, courtesy of none other than Linux creator Linus Torvalds himself.

TuxMachines: Zorin OS 9 Core Review: As good as Linux Mint 17!

Monday 25th of August 2014 10:18:38 PM

Though personally I don’t like Linux operating system resembling Windows (I had really bad experiences with Windows and lost a lot of data in the past at a critical phase in my student life and OS resembling Windows reminds me of the same), but I have seen Zorin OS to be quite popular among the new users, specially those who are converting from Windows to Linux. Even I used Zorin OS for sometime in the past, but once I upgraded Zorin to the next release, it became Ubuntu and all Zorin specific customization are lost. However, the recent Zorin OS release is supported for 5 years (till April 2019) and possibly you don’t need to upgrade it for quite sometime, given the customization I am recommending in this article.

TuxMachines: killed the distro star: Why are people so bored with the top Linux makers?

Monday 25th of August 2014 09:39:23 PM

Matthew Miller is a little concerned. As the new project leader for the Fedora Linux distribution, he thinks Fedora 20 is great and Fedora 21, when it ships, will be the best release ever. But he worries that to everyone else, Fedora – and Linux distros in general – are getting a little, well … boring.

TuxMachines: Linux AIO Linux Mint DVD Has All Linux Mint 17 Flavors on One Disc

Monday 25th of August 2014 09:35:51 PM

The Linux AIO Team is trying to provide a very simple and obvious service for the users and to gather all the releases for some of the most famous distros and offer them on a single DVD, which might seem like the obvious solution.

As we all know, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Debian developers provide separate images for each flavor of their distribution. Linux Mint has quite a few, the Debian project the same, and Ubuntu has so many it's hard to name them all.

TuxMachines: Interesting facts about Linux

Monday 25th of August 2014 09:28:31 PM

There is a never-ending debate on whether or not Linux is an operating system. Technically, the term "Linux" refers to the kernel, a core component of an operating system. Folks who argue that Linux is not an operating system are operating system purists who think that the kernel alone does not make the whole operating system, or free software ideologists who believe that the largest free operating system should be named "GNU/Linux" to give credit where credit is due (i.e., GNU project). On the other hand, some developers and programmers have a view that Linux qualifies as an operating system in a sense that it implements the POSIX standard.

ACPI, kernels and contracts with firmware

This ends up being a pain in the neck in the x86 world, but it could be much worse. Way back in 2008 I wrote something about why the Linux kernel reports itself to firmware as "Windows" but refuses to identify itself as Linux. The short version is that "Linux" doesn't actually identify the behaviour of the kernel in a meaningful way. "Linux" doesn't tell you whether the kernel can deal with buffers being passed when the spec says it should be a package. "Linux" doesn't tell you whether the OS knows how to deal with an HPET. "Linux" doesn't tell you whether the OS can reinitialise graphics hardware. Read more
