I'm looking for SimpliX!
Meet me on http://simplix.wordpress.com (italian)

Why FSDaily of course!

The digg-style site for free software news. You decide what's important, you submit it, you vote for it, you comment on it. Free software news for the free software community by the free software community.

Soon all of the formulas for promotion and burying will be open too so the community can help to find the least biased way to choose the news.

re: FSDaily

I'm actually just trying to see what folks might prefer to see on my side block over there. I gave up on OSNews cuz their rss feed sometimes doesn't update for hours. I like slashdot cuz it covers all sorts of subjects and I click on their headlines quite often. I'm not sure I like Digg, but if a lot of others do...

The trouble with FSDaily is that many times by the time stories end up on there, I've already found them and posted them to my site. I pull it in for myself, but I rarely see anything new there.

So, early results look like folks like Slashdot and Digg.

Give us a chance...

We don't have dedicated people going through news feeds finding news and deciding what to submit. It's a community driven site. The news is slow hitting our homepage at the moment only because we don't have enough active users yet.

However, we have gained over 1000 users in 3 months. Once there are more (active) users. People will (hopefully) be clawing to submit their free-software-related news to our site. Once that happens the news and articles which are important to the community will be there in abundance.

Then it will be the perfect feed for a side block on a free software related site.

I do understand your (and your audience's) leaning toward slashdot or digg though. They expand on the news you publish rather than potentially replicating it.

I, myself, can no longer stand digg. The MS fanboys just make it intolerable. As a foss advocate I find it really hard to see so many mis-informed opinions flying around.

*Edit: and I have noticed that of all the foss related news hubs you are the fastest at picking up the news. Lxer, LWN, digg, fossnews, osnews, etc., seem to be days behind most of the time. From my investigations it seems to be Tuxmachines followed by fsdaily for promptness. This is because: 1) we need more participation, 2) our news stays in the upcoming queue for a while before it hits the home page, 3) possibly because you get up earlier in the morning than some of our contributors, Smile and/or 4)...you never sleep ;P

Desktop GNU/Linux/Chromebook

  • A Minimal Chrome OS Theme for Tint2
    I used to (and sort-of-still-do, I guess) run a sister site focused on Google Chrome, Chromecast and Chromebooks, i.e. the Chrome ecosystem. As such I am a fan of Chromebooks and Chrome OS, a Linux-based distribution based on Gentoo. The appearance of Chrome OS has waxed and waned in sync with Google’s ambitions and positioning for the OS, going form hyper-minimal to a full desktop clone (with the desktop-y Chrome Apps platform) through to a Material Design inspired Android + Chrome hybrid today.
  • Off-The-Shelf Hacker: Linux for Cheap Hardware, Then and Now
    Most people, don’t realize how prolific Linux has become. With the Embedded Linux Conference just a week away, I’ve been reflecting on how Linux has provided a sort of computing “circle of life” experience for me. It’s powered my computational hardware 20 years ago and continues to do so today.

  • Antergos Linux : The beauty built on Arch
    Hi guys, welcome to the 16th segment of "Introduction with Linux Distro". Most of us know or heard about Arch Linux, which is one of the most widely used Linux distribution. For some reason, few users find it hard to install and use Arch. But in Linux world, there is almost always some alternative to your desired distribution. In today's segment, we will be introducing an Arch-based distribution which turned it completely on user-friendly side. So, let's get to know about Antergos Linux.

Leftovers: Software

  • Picard 1.4 released
    The last time we put out a stable release was more than 2 years ago, so a lot of changes have made it into this new release. If you’re in a hurry and just want to try it out, the downloads are available from the Picard website.
  • Linux Digital Audio Workstations: Open Source Music Production
    Linux Digital Audio Workstations When most people think of music programs, they’ll usually think Mac OS or Windows. However, there are also a few Linux digital audio workstations. The support and features of these programs can vary, but they’re a good choice to setup a cheap recording studio. Some of them are even good competitors for paid programs, offering features such as multitrack recording, MIDI, and virtual instruments. Keep in mind that many audio editing programs for Linux rely on the Jack backend. You’ll need a dedicated system to install these programs on, since it doesn’t work properly in a virtual machine. In the following article, we’ll cover audio editing programs that are available for Linux. We’ll talk about the available features, as well as help you decide which program to use for your needs.
  • i2pd 2.12 released
    i2pd (I2P Daemon) is a full-featured C++ implementation of I2P client. I2P (Invisible Internet Protocol) is a universal anonymous network layer. All communications over I2P are anonymous and end-to-end encrypted, participants don't reveal their real IP addresses.
  • 4 Command-Line Graphics Tools for Linux
    For the most part, they’re wrong. Command-line image tools do much of what their GUI counterparts can, and they can do it just as well. Sometimes, especially when dealing with multiple image files or working on an older computer, command-line tools can do a better job. Let’s take a look at four command-line tools that can ably handle many of your basic (and not-so-basic) image manipulation tasks.
  • CloudStats - Best Server Monitoring Tool for Linux Servers
    CloudStats is an effective tool for Linux server monitoring and network monitoring. With CloudStats you get whole visibility into key performance criteria of your Linux Server. You can proactively track different server metrics like CPU, disk and memory usage, services, apps, processes and more. The best thing is that you don’t need to have any special technical skills – this tool for server monitoring is very easy to install and run from any device.
  • New Inkscape 0.92.1 fixes your previous works done with Inkscape
    This blog-post is about a happy-end after a previously published blog-post named New Inkscape 0.92 breaks your previous works done with Inkscape published on 20 January. A lot of reactions did happen about this previous blog-post and the news get quickly viral. That's why I thought it was nice to make another blog post to "close this case".
  • Qt 5.10 To Have Built-In Vulkan Support
    With Qt 5.8 there was experimental Direct3D 12 support that left some disappointed the toolkit didn't opt for supporting Vulkan first as a cross-platform, high-performance graphics API. Fortunately, with Qt 5.10, there will be built-in Vulkan support. Going back nearly one year there has been Vulkan work around Qt while with Qt 5.10 it's becoming a reality. However, with Qt 5.9 not even being released until the end of May, Qt 5.10 isn't going to officially debut until either the very end of 2017 or early 2018.
