  • With B1 Archiver, No Need to RTFM

    Archiving tools typically are intimidating and confusing. Even those with GUIs often require an investment of time to figure out how to use them. B1 is very intuitive. Almost every action can be executed through keyboard shortcuts. The menu row at the top of the app window has only three drop-down categories: File, Commands and Help. The dialog boxes that open from the menu are well designed and easy to use.

  • Stream and Share Your Media with PlexWeb

    I freely admit that I wish Plex was open source. Thankfully, however, its proprietary code does't mean Linux users are excluded.

  • 5 Of The Best Programming Editors Under Linux [2014]

    When NodeJS made its debut in open source market, around 4 years ago, everyone knew what was going to follow. Programmers loved it at first sight, used it and evolved it. The idea of having a JS client, that talks to a JS server and stores data in a JS database ( document databases ), was quite attractive and people adapt it at once, in every case, right or wrong.

  • Make Peace with pax

    pax is one of the lesser known utilities in a typical Linux installation. That's too bad, because pax has a very good feature set, and its command-line options are easy to understand and remember. pax is an archiver, like tar(1), but it's also a better version of cp(1) in some ways, not least because you can use pax with SSH to copy sets of files over a network. Once you learn pax, you may wonder how you lived without it all these years.

LaTeX is based on Donald E. Knuth's TeX typesetting language. Lamport says that LaTeX “represents a balance between functionality and ease of use”.

  • The Future of OpenShift and Docker Containers

    A few months ago, Docker (then dotCloud) and Red Hat announced a partnership to collaborate around Docker, the excellent container management solution for Linux. At the time, the OpenShift team was heads down working on our 2.0 release, but we were already thinking about how we could use Docker to take application development and deployment on OpenShift to the next level.

  • What is open source software?
    The term open source when connected to software may today seem like it’s been around forever, but you would be surprised how new of a concept it is. The transformational nature of the telecommunication industry’s march towards a software future should not be under estimated. What for most of its history has been an industry based on live, physical hardware is quickly turning into a future where hardware will still be there, but it will be the software inside that is truly running the game.

  • Deepgram open sources Kur to make DIY deep learning less painful
    Deepgram, a YC backed startup using machine learning to analyze audio data for businesses, is open sourcing an internal deep learning tool called Kur. The release should further help those interested in the space get their ideas off the ground more easily. The startup is also including 10 hours of transcribed audio, spliced into 10 second increments, to expedite the training process. Similar to Keras, Kur further abstracts the process of building and training deep learning models. By making deep learning easier, Kur is also making image recognition and speech analysis more accessible.

  • Open source organizations can now apply for Google Summer of Code 2017
    Open source ideology is changing the world. What was once (wrongfully) viewed as something just for hobbyists, is now a billion dollar industry. In other words, closed source is not the only way to make profits. Open source code is found in many places, including mainstream consumer electronics -- look no further than Android smartphones. Speaking of Android, its creator -- Google -- is a huge proponent of open source. In fact, every summer, the search giant holds its "Summer of Code" program. This initiative partners inspiring developers (in college, age 18+) with organizations as a way to further the open source movement. Today, Google announces that organizations can begin applying for the program.
