ZDnet: Now HTML 5 has finally been standardized, Jeff Jaffe, the W3C's CEO, wants to get people talking about what to do next.
All. Access. It was right there, in all caps, on the badge hanging at the bottom of my lanyard. And, boy howdy, did I treat those two little words as a challenge. If I was going to be technically allowed to go anywhere at any time, you bet I was going to do so.
Enterprise cloud storage has come a long way in the past decade as storage developers have worked out a lot of the kinks that plagued the technology early on. In this series of articles I'll take you through some different cloud storage options.
The last time I had a linux on my desktop was a year ago - and I dumped it (again.. and again.. and again..) because of shitty ATI/AMD drivers and me failing to deal with it.
I'm running an FX-8350 + HD-7970 combo and don't plan to replace my gfx card in the near future.
So, after steam is constantly pushing it's service beyond windows and I saw some movement in the GFX driver area - how mature are the drivers now? How is the OpenCL / OpenGL performance? Are there nasty artifacts?submitted by sputnik1957

The Nexus 6 is the best Nexus ever and for once a Nexus device is not lacking in any specification. The price reflects the high-end nature of the Nexus 6, but the competition in the Android marketplace is also much stiffer than it was in the past. I still need to use the Nexus 6 a bit more with my T-Mobile SIM to convince myself it isn't the device for me. I enjoy large screen smartphones, but find other offerings to be more compelling.
The final rease of Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon and MATE was announced this weekend. I have picked up both versions, and I have installed them on a number of computers around here, with both legacy (MBR) and UEFI boot. The results have been very good, as expected.
As anyone who has been around Linux much probably knows, Linux Mint (numbered) is derived from Ubuntu. However, starting with Mint 17 the releases no longer track the latest Ubuntu releases. Mint is now based on the Ubuntu Long Term Support (LTS) releases and will update their own distribution as they see fit.
That means that although Ubuntu recently released 14.10, this Mint release is still based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and the new Mint numbering system indicates that (this is 17.1, not 18), although the name change is a bit contrary to that (17.1 is called Rebecca rather than Q..., but I guess Q-names are not easy to come up with.
To get a few easy questions out of the way, here's a short biography about me any my history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Kroah-Hartman
Here's a good place to start with that should cover a lot of the basics about what I do and what my hardware / software configuration is. http://greg.kh.usesthis.com/
Also, an old reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/18j923/a_year_in_the_life_of_a_kernel_mantainer_by_greg/ explains a bit about what I do, although those numbers are a bit low from what I have been doing this past year, it gives you a good idea of the basics.
And read this one about longterm kernels for how I pick them, as I know that will come up and has been answered before: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/2i85ud/confusion_about_longterm_kernel_endoflive/
For some basic information about Linux kernel development, how we do what we do, and how to get involved, see the presentation I give all around the world: https://github.com/gregkh/kernel-development
I'm also a true believer of /r/MechanicalKeyboards/ and have two Cherry Blue Filco 10-key-less keyboards that I use whenever not traveling.gregkh
