As much as the internet and technology as made our lives easier, so has it also made us lazier and less productive than the last generation before us. With the advent of social media, and whole other lot of distraction the internet has to push to our faces it can be extremely hard to focus on one thing for a long period of time and boy oh boy, I blame you not as I am very much as guilty of this charge as you are.
Earlier this month we learned of a new game coming that's powered by Unigine after first the developers were looking to make use of Unreal Engine 4. We've already confirmed there will be a Linux port of this Unigine-powered MMORPG and this week the developers published the first screenshots.
Birds Linux 8.0 might have been in development for the past 3 months, but during this period, the developer has managed to update most of the core components to their latest versions. One of the things that you will notice after is that the distribution is now powered by a kernel from the Linux 4.5 series and includes the LibreOffice 5.1.2 office suite.
The Linux-based OS already commands millions of installations across desktops and tablets the world over, and makes a welcome change from the endless run of Android-based devices. Anticipation levels were therefore high and, on first impressions, we believed we were in the presence of a truly desirable smartphone.
We are happy to announce the 3scale nginx-based API Gateway is now available as a Docker image on the Red Hat OpenShift PaaS solution. Customers using OpenShift can easily deploy the 3scale API Gateway with a few clicks and leverage multiple additional benefits of this PaaS. Now, any application written on OpenShift can automatically scale up based on demand and can easily be moved to another environment that supports the same languages, preventing vendor dependency and freeing customers from lock-in.
Red Hat bought Ansible back in Oct 2015 to augment its ‘IT automation’ tooling, particularly with regards to pumping its DevOps capabilities… and as a welcome adjunct to its existing base of hybrid management portfolio tools.
Last weekend, I attended OSCAL 2016, a conference about open source in Tirana, Albania. I was looking forward to the conference very much because the Fedora community in Albania had been very active recently. I’d met some of the Albanian community members at other conferences, but I was curious to meet others.
The conference really surprised me with its hospitality which was second to nothing. The organizers provided us with a lot of useful information, arranged transportation from the airport to the hotel. What was a real nice touch was a welcoming package which was waiting for every speaker in his/her hotel room. I haven’t seen something like this at any conference before and it must have been a real effort because speakers are spread among several hotels in the city.
What is Ubuntu?
The open source community is packed full of intriguing projects and companies, so much so that even the biggest of proprietary vendors have moved to embrace it.
Ubuntu is one of those open source projects that has developed a wide-spread following.
Ubuntu is an open source Linux distribution based on Debian, which is a freely available operating system that uses the Linux kernel.
Initially developed for personal computers, it has developed to being used on servers, and smartphones.
Development of Ubuntu is led by Canonical, a UK based company that was founded by Mark Shuttleworth.
Hands-on with Ubuntu MATE 16.04 on the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3
To put things into a fair perspective, keep in mind that we are talking about a computer that costs $25 or so and can be used with a display, keyboard and mouse which a lot of people are going to have on hand already. That means for a very small amount of money, you can have a very nice computer running one of the most popular Linux distributions. Some people (including me) might argue that there are really not many (or any) significant advantages of Ubuntu MATE over Raspbian, but even I can't deny that MATE looks more polished, and if you are accustomed to Ubuntu in general or MATE in particular, then this distribution is the way to go.
