Philip Newborough, the lead developer behind the CrunchBang Linux distribution, has tossed in the towel.
The lead developer of CrunchBang Linux has decided to halt development of this Linux distribution that's based on Debian but known for its choice of using the Openbox window manager.
I've bought this TV card: http://www.dvbsky.net/Products_S950.html Which says it has linux support. I was thinking of upgrading my Windows machine to Debian, but I have no idea of how good software support I will have there for the TV card (which will be one of the main applications of the pc).
I'd like to have the TV working, but also the remote, etc... Will this be very difficult / tedious to configure? Which one is the software to go here? XBMC?

With Plasma 5 our lock screen architecture changed significantly. For example we do no longer support screen saver hacks or widgets on top of the locked screen. Both are very unlikely to make a return in future releases. This means that bug reports against the old infrastructure might no longer apply to our current code base. Two weeks ago I went through all bug reports and feature requests to evaluate whether they still apply to our new infrastructure or should be closed.
The mobile market is saturated. Any new entrants are doomed from the start. And if you need proof, just look at Windows Phone or BlackBerry. The problem is that you need an app ecosystem to gain market share, but you need market share in order to entice developers to your platform.
Here's a handy little script I wrote and added to /usr/bin for confirming intent to execute a command:while true; do read -p "$1 " choice case $choice in [Yy] ) exit 0;; [Nn] ) echo 'Aborted'; exit -1;; * ) echo "Y/N?";; esac done
Can be used like this:confirm 'Are you sure?' && high_stakes_command
Can also be used to reconfirm:confirm 'Are you sure?' && confirm 'Are you really sure?' && high_stakes_command
Is there a built-in tool that can do this which I'm unaware of?submitted by Jon-Targaryen
When you have a need that Apache can’t fill, it’s good to know there are alternatives available.
