Nowadays, the Internet is all about the Web. Users seem to have forgotten that it's possible to receive updates about anything that is posted on multiple web sites in seconds: this non secret is called RSS. Liferea is a neat, great piece of software that allows you to read RSS feeds and more.
If you’ve followed any tech news aggregator in the past week, you’ve probably seen the story about how SourceForge is taking over admin accounts for existing projects and injecting adware in installers for packages like GIMP. For anyone not following the story, SourceForge has a long history of adware laden installers, but they used to be opt-in. It appears that the process is now mandatory for many projects.
People have been wary of SourceForge ever since they added a feature to allow projects to opt-in to adware bundling, but you could at least claim that projects are doing it by choice. But now that SourceForge is clearly being malicious, they’ve wiped out all of the user trust that was built up over sixteen years of operating. No clueful person is going to ever download something from SourceForge again. If search engines start penalizing SourceForge for distributing adware, they won’t even get traffic from people who haven’t seen this story, wiping out basically all of their value.
When I was a young girl, I remember my dad showing me Linux on his computer.
He was showing me what was known then as Red Hat Linux—it was a fresh version of Colgate 4.0 from Best Buy. At that time, I was familiar with Windows 95 and knew how to use a computer, but Linux was new to me. It looked like a bunch of code and too technical. So, it was many years later, in January of 2009, that I finally made the switch.
Today KDE released the second stability update for KDE Applications 15.04. This release contains only bugfixes and translation updates, providing a safe and pleasant update for everyone.
More than 30 recorded bugfixes include improvements to gwenview, kate, kdenlive, kdepim, konsole, marble, kgpg, kig, ktp-call-ui and umbrello.
Some services line Netflix have an annoying geolocation restriction that made them unavailable outside the United States. In case of Netflix, this is due to licensing issues. It's not a slim difference: do you want to be able to access just over one thousand movies, or would you prefer to have access to over thirteen thousand movies?
So far in 2015 we haven't heard much at all about The Machine... Besides that X.Org veteran Keith Packard left Intel to join HP where he's working on The Machine. Thus now being into June 2015, I'm wondering if this month we'll see the debut of Linux++, "Software that emulates the hardware design of The Machine and other tools will be released so that programmers can test their code against the new operating system. Linux++ is intended to ultimately be replaced by an operating system designed from scratch for The Machine, which HP calls Carbon," according to one of the earlier reports.
Time and again, Ubuntu keeps popping up whenever there's some Google product launch. Remember Google's Project Tango or that bit of news about the use of a 'lightly custmozied Ubuntu' in Google's Driverless Car project? Given its widespread use inside Google, it's no surprise than Google is an Ubuntu Advantage Customer.
It's been a crazy few days in Linuxville to be sure. Sourceforge is accused of locking out GIMP developers and inserting malware into the application for users to download. Scott Dowdle spotted a "GNOME versus KDE" in MR. ROBOT and Ubuntu was seen in a Google promotional video. David Both shows users how to use Konqueror and Attila Orosz takes a look at Deepin 2014.3. And finally, is the Bling factor in Linux doomed?
Ranga Rangachari, VP & GM of Red Hat, Inc., and Duane Decapite, the Director of OpenStack Product Management at Cisco Systems, Inc., have established a unique partnership between their respective companies under the OpenStack banner, based on the current trajectory of their shared technology.
Maybe you have a smart lock or connected light bulbs, but if you really want to move closer to true home automation, you need a smart-home hub. Without one, you can’t do something like set up a nighttime scenario, where your thermostat lowers, front door locks, and lights turn off at bedtime.
I manage the community leadership portion of the Open Source and Standards (OSAS) team at Red Hat. Our team works to help ensure the success of the community upstream projects, which are so important to Red Hat. This includes Fedora, CentOS, RDO, oVirt, Project Atomic, and many others. You can read about what we're working on and find events where our team and other Red Hat employees are presenting at community.redhat.com or follow us on Twitter at @redhatopen.
