cursedmate is python-driven, and isn’t a bad game on the whole. The animation and movement effects are smooth, and pop-up menus and displays don’t get in the way of the action.
Some users switch to Linux to completely get away from Windows. But others still find some Windows software helpful or important. If you're one of those users, you'll be happy to know that there are a number of ways you can run Windows software in Linux.
A few months ago, we told you LG formally introduced an OLED panel with a diagonal of 18 inches that could also be rolled into a cylinder to become a tube with a circumference of 3 cm / 1.18 inches across, taking another big step in the direction of consumer-friendly rollable electronics.
Google’s Android 5.1 Lollipop update is currently pushing out to several devices not including the aging Nexus 4. With Nexus 4 Android 5.1 Lollipop questions swirling, we want to take a look at what we think Nexus 4 users need to know right now about the Android 5.1 Lollipop update that should roll out to the device sometime in the future.
Combat strategy games are an excellent amalgamation of two popular genres. This combination provides a well-paced yet addictive gaming experience that can keep you awake all night swiping and poking at your smartphone or tablet’s screen.
The Government on Wednesday formulated a 'Policy on Adoption of Open Source Software for Government of India' that would encourage the formal adoption and use of Open Source Software (OSS) in Government organisations.
Currently most eGovernance solutions are developed using Closed Source Software (CSS), which is licensed under the exclusive legal right of the copyright holder. In that the users' right to make modifications, sharing, studying, redistribution or reverse engineering is limited.
If you were a little confused about Red Hat's open-source, software-defined storage options in the past, no one could blame you. On one side there was Inktank Ceph Enterprise, a distributed object store and file system. On the other was Red Hat Storage Server which deployed the Gluster, a multi-protocol, scale-out file-system that can deal with petabytes of data. So, how do you decide which one is for you? Red Hat's trying to make its storage portfolio a little clearer.
The explosive growth of data from Internet-connected devices has led to massive demand for storage and analysis tools in computing. Treasure Data aims to serve both of these needs in one place with its big data cloud service based on Linux.
“Treasure Data monitors and supports its cloud service for customers who collect, store and analyze tens of billions of records a day,” said Eduardo Silva, an open source developer at Treasure Data, who is focused on Fluentd and related open source projects. “Linux is one of our keys to success.”
I can’t recall the exact time I learned about open source software, but I can certainly narrow down the place. I quickly realized how transformative it could be. In 1996, I was sitting in the tech support department of a large ISP that provided hosting and connectivity to the Fortune 1000. Most of our servers ran Solaris, floppy disks arrived via snail mail, and we applied security updates manually adhering to a regime of updates and invoices prescribed by Sun Microsystems. It was a huge change from my university career of dumb terminals and mainframes.
The results in this article contain more NVIDIA GeForce Linux results than what was shared last week when showing how BioShock Infinite runs much faster with the NVIDIA Linux driver than AMD Catalyst. The NVIDIA test line-up today spans from the GeForce GTX 550 Ti Fermi to the newest GeForce GTX 960/970/980 Maxwell graphics cards.
Why should you use KDE Activities? The best way to answer that question is to give some concrete examples of what you can do with them.
Activities are virtual desktops. They share a common panel and menu, but each has its own layout and selection of items on the desktop. In addition, each has its own virtual workspaces and wallpaper.
To build an Activity, select from the Desktop Toolkit Activities > Create Activities. Give the Activity an icon and a name, and select a layout from the Desktop Settings. In the KDE 4 series, these layouts include Search and Launch, a netbook desktop; Newspaper, a grid for arranging wizards, and several others whose purpose is obscure to many readers. The new Plasma 5.2 appears to eliminate all except Desktop and Folder, but that may be because it is just starting to be used, and layouts for the new release have yet to be written.
Azul Systems has added a new, ultra-compact entry to its portfolio of alternative Java environments, taking a run at Oracle for the lucrative mobile, embedded, and Internet of Things (IoT) markets.
Zulu Embedded is a stripped-down sibling of Zulu and Zulu Embedded, Azul's certified, cross-platform build of OpenJDK, Oracle's open source reference implementation of the Java Developer Kit.
Rethink Robotics’s one-armed, Linux- and ROS-based “Sawyer” manipulation robot is smaller, faster, stronger, and more precise than the earlier Baxter.
When MIT spinoff Rethink Robotics announced the $25,000+ Baxter manipulation robot in 2012, it inspired a whole new category of small, relatively low-cost robots for light manufacturing and product assembly. The fixed, two-armed, “collaborative” robot broke new ground in the flexibility of its arms and grippers, as well as the Linux-based Intera software. Intera integrates algorithms that enable the robot to quickly learn new tasks and safely work alongside humans.
There are similarities between Docker and recent open source communities. Not only in the surge of supporting developers, IT operations pros, vendors, investors and end users, but also in the way the technology is making its way to the market through developers and lines of business before central IT departments. Expect to see a support-and-services-driven market for Docker and containers.
The GNOME development team, through Florian Müllner, had the pleasure of announcing the other day that new maintenance releases are available for the GNOME Shell and Mutter components of the GNOME 3.14 desktop environment, despite the fact that GNOME 3.16 will be officially announced tomorrow, March 25, 2015.
A recent report from the Linux Foundation and Dice revealed that there is a high demand for Linux professionals, but organizations are finding it difficult to find qualified candidates. The 2015 Linux Jobs Report discovered that 92% of IT managers are planning to hire Linux professionals in the next six months, but 88% stated it is difficult to find the right candidates.
