Linux conference focuses on desktops

Filed under
Linux

The Linux operating system is expanding from company data centers onto employees’ desktops, one of several trends that a local technology trade show producer will highlight at this year’s LinuxWorld exposition.

The East Coast LinuxWorld Conference & Expo, sponsored by IDG World Expo Corp. of Framingham, will attract somewhere between 5,000 and 7,000 software developers, consultants, academics, end users, venture capitalists, legal constituents and geeks to Boston’s Convention and Exhibition Center tomorrow through Thursday.

They’ll be greeted by 150 exhibitors at the show, which was based in Boston for the first time last year at the Hynes Convention Center after moving from New York. (Tickets are free today at www.linuxworldexpo.com/boston, but $50 starting tomorrow.)

Full Story.

    Epiphany 3.29.3 is now available as the latest version of this GNOME Web Browser. Being in the middle of the GNOME 3.30 development cycle, the Epiphany 3.29.3 release is made up of many changes. First up, Epiphany now has an experimental reader mode that is inspired by Mozilla's Firefox reader mode. When viewing page sources in Epiphany, it will also now display within the web browser itself rather than the text editor.
