Software

redmonk.com: I consider personnel moves to be material to their employers, and at such times I feel obligated to comment - whether I like it or not. Such is the case with the recent defections from Sun of Mårten Mickos most recently, and Monty Widenius a week or so distant.

Hidden Linux : Font Frolics

blogs.pcworld: More isn't necessarily more useful. Somehow I've ended up with around 120 fonts. This might be great if I was a graphic designer, but as I typically use no more than half-a-dozen it's actually a damn nuisance.

My solution for Linux adoption

Filed under
Linux

blogs.techrepublic.com: Recently I was reading a thread about Linux game support. The thread was regarding a particular game that had a version for Linux (it wasn’t actually a port), which was quickly pulled from support. Within the thread the tried and true standardization argument came up. It’s a valid argument, and one that most people don’t realize could bit Linux in the hinder at some point.

linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: Let's walk on the support side of the software world for a moment. There is a lot of talk, postulating and plain old FUD about what support is and should be in the FOSS world. Of course, we can break the topic into separate areas of discussion.

Refracta 8.0 Is a Pint-Sized Powerhouse

Refracta is a somewhat obscure Linux distribution that offers exceptional functionality and stability. Obscurity is not always a bad thing when it comes to Linux distros. You can find some very worthwhile alternatives to your current operating system. Refracta is a big surprise in a small package. Many look-alike desktop distros are difficult to distinguish from run-of-the-mill garden varieties. Others offer new adopters something unique that makes using them fun and productive. Refracta is one of the few full-service Linux distros that makes an easy and more convenient replacement for pocket Linux options such as Puppy Linux. Not all Linux distros that install to a USB drive -- and have the ability to save files and system settings in a persistent mode -- work equally well. Read more

PTS: PHP 7.1 vs. PHP 7.0 vs. HHVM Benchmarks

With today's PHP 7.1 release, performance isn't highlighted as much as language improvements to this first major update to PHP7, but I decided to run some PHP 7.1, PHP 7.0, PHP 5.6, PHP 5.5, and HHVM benchmarks of our open-source Phoronix Test Suite code-base. These self-tests of the Phoronix Test Suite aren't the conventional PHP workload of just a CMS, blog, or other web application that can be cached, etc, but effectively of a PHP CLI application. So keep this in mind when looking at the results and that your mileage may vary depending upon use-case. Read more
