The Manjaro community is proud to present a new Manjaro JWM Edition installation media.
JWM (Joe’s Window Manager) is a lightweight stacking window manager for the X Window System written by Joe Wingbermuehle. JWM is written in C and uses only Xlib at a minimum. Configuration is by editing an XML file - no graphical configuration is supplied.
If you were running Microsoft, how would you go about converting Windows into a fully Open Source project?
It may seem like a ludicrous idea to many – the notion that Microsoft would ever willingly open source their cash cow operating system – but I want to think this through. If I had control of Microsoft, how would I accomplish this seemingly impossible task? What are the specific steps I would take to get us from point A to point B?

After a lengthy developer preview, the newest version of Google's flagship operating system is finally ready for the masses. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is the twenty-third version of Google's "mobile" operating system, though it can accurately be described as "mobile" only if you're referring to how much it gets around. With all the areas in which Google now tinkers, Marshmallow is destined for smartphones, tablets, watches, televisions, and cars, among others.
Sources: Apple Dumps VMware Licensing Agreement, Will Step Up Deployment Of Open-Source KVM VirtualizationSubmitted by Rianne Schestowitz on Monday 5th of October 2015 08:37:13 PM Filed under
Several VMware partners told CRN that their customers are looking at KVM and OpenStack as a way to lower their VMware licensing costs. While OpenStack and KVM aren't easy to deploy, large organizations can afford to hire the necessary talent and expertise, solution providers said.
"While most companies don't have the technical chops to ditch VMware and go with KVM, ones with mature IT departments may look at this and reconsider their VMware strategies," said one longtime VMware partner executive, who didn't want to be named
Many enterprise customers are moving away from a 'one-size fits all approach', instead they are looking to open source.
Using open source software means that they are able to build more customised business solutions. Open source provides a relatively lower total cost of ownership and its rapid development is creating greater demand in enterprises.
HP is spearheading multivendor development of an open source network operating system for data centers in an effort to address scale, dynamic operation and vendor independence.
HP is banding together with three other hardware companies and a hypervisor vendor to launch the OpenSwitch Community, which will seek community-like participation in the development of a Linux-based OpenSwitch NOS. The other participants are Intel, Broadcom, Accton and VMware.
Two Dutch design students are developing a 3D printed bicycle – an open source project through which they hope to encourage others to customise and manufacture their own versions.
The OBI, or Open Bicycle, has been created by industrial designers Stef de Groot and Paul De Medeiros. The open source template will allow the construction of a fully-functioning bicycle for around €400 (approx. £300) – far cheaper than buying a brand new set of wheels.
Those unfamiliar with the openSUSE kernel flavors can see this Wiki page. Tested for this article was the default, desktop, debug, and vanilla kernel options. During testing, installed by default was the -desktop kernel when installing the openSUSE 42.1 Leap Beta and thus that was what ended up being used in last week's Linux distribution comparison, although the Wiki page indicates that the -default kernel should be the default for desktops and servers. The 4.1.6-10 kernel was used when testing the -debug, -default, -desktop, and -vanilla kernel images obtained from the official openSUSE Leap repository.
