Easy dvd-video authoring on Ubuntu Linux with Dvdman

Filed under
Software

I have made a simple standard-dvd-video with a custom basic menu, using only free software on Ubuntu (Feisty) for pc i386.

Ubuntu is a free operating system that, differently from Windows and MacOS has no licensing costs. Also most of the professional software you can use on a Linux operating system is free (released under Gnu-Gpl or another opernsource license).

Let’s make a comparison:
€ Windows XP license
€ , amateur dvd-authoring-software
€ , amateur video-editing-software
€ Nero, dvd-burning-software
€129 one MacOS X license
€79 iLife (iDvd, amateur dvd-authoring-software + iMovie, amateur video-editing-software + iPhoto, amateur photo managing software with powerful slideshow authoring)
€0 operating-system-integrated dvd-burning-software
€0 infinite licenze Ubuntu Linux
€0 Mandvd, amateur dvd-authoring-software
€0 operating-system-integrated dvd-burning-software with powerful slideshow authoring

I think that investing time on free-opensource-software (foss) is both an ethic and economic choice.

  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
