re: Where's the...

Teehee. Well, I figured folks who didn't use a(n) *buntu wouldn't participate in this one. And now they come out with an ultimate-gamers version. it took 3 days to bittorrent in, but I guess I'll take a look at it.

2-minute review of Ubuntu Ultimate Gamer

It looked really cool with a martial-arts/dragon/ying yangy black and blue theme. It's bit dark for my old eyes to take for very long, but it was definitely cool looking. As usual, I had to quickly ctrl+alt+F2 to console to edit xorg.conf file before system lock-up with all *buntus, what with my vastly differing dual monitors confusing its hardware detection. So, I knew upon this edit that for an ultimate gaming version, there would be very little games played. default. It apparently does not come with proprietary drivers for ATI and NVIDIA cards, which will be needed to play any 3D games. If they are available, then why did xorg default to "nv?"

I didn't get a chance to look around too much as the first desktop icon I clicked on caused a hard-lock up requiring the use of my hardware reset button. I could do more work: install to hard drive and install the NVIDIA drivers, but in my opinion, if one is gonna put out a 3 gig livecd download and call it the ultimate gamers edition - then by-golly it should come with drivers to use it.

#kde users == #gnome users on *buntu

Seems like (more or less) the same amount of people use KDE as they use Gnome on *buntu.
And this happens eventough Gnome gets most of the attention from Canonical.
Maybe it's time for another paid developer on Kubuntu?

More OpenSUSE Leap Linux Kernel Benchmarks

Earlier this week I posted a number of openSUSE Leap benchmarks of their different kernels: debug, default, desktop, and vanilla. Here's some follow-up tests with more results from comparing the openSUSE 42.1 Leap Beta kernel builds. The tests are very similar to the article earlier this week, just with many more data-points now after seeing the performance differences from the initial test suite. Read more

LinuxCon 2015 Report: Dirk Hohndel Chats with Linus Torvalds

For many LinuxCon attendees, one of the biggest event highlights is the opportunity to rub elbows with the people who actually write the Linux code. The only thing that can top that? Hearing from Linus Torvalds himself, the man who created it 24 years ago and still writes the code to this day. Read more

Open Network Linux Simplifies Open Compute Project Switch Configuration

Big Switch Networks, Facebook and NTT, announced today that they have come together to create a unified operating system for the Open Compute Project‘s (OCP) open source networking switch called Open Network Linux. The project is designed to help companies, whether web scale-type companies like Facebook or others looking to take advantage of the Open Compute Project’s open source switches, to use the platform as a base to configure the switches in a way that makes sense to them.

Would the Internet Exist without Linux? Yes. Without Open Source? No

Would the Internet exist if Linux did not? A video out this week from the Linux Foundation, which has launched a new campaign to promote open source, says no. History says yes. The minute-long video is the first in a new series the Linux Foundation has created called "A World Without Linux." The series "flips reality on its head to illustrate in an entertaining fashion just how pervasive Linux is today," according to a Linux Foundation representative. Read more
