What’s New in Ubuntu 9.10

Filed under
Ubuntu

workswithu.com: WorksWithU reported a couple weeks ago on new features in Ubuntu 9.10, like kernel mode setting and GRUB 2, that are likely to please geeks. But Ubunti 9.10 (codenamed Karmic Koala) will also sport changes aimed at traditional users. Here’s a look at a few of them.

Filed under

bbc.co.uk: The computer world is notorious for its obsession with what is new. Anything that survives for more than one generation of processors deserves a nod. Think then what the Unix operating system deserves because in August 2009, it celebrates its 40th anniversary.

Distro Review: Pardus Linux 2009

Filed under
Linux

danlynch.org/blog: This week I revisited a distribution I first wrote about back in 2007, Pardus Linux. It’s developed by the Turkish National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptography, it has its own package management system called PISI (Packages Installed Successfully, as Intended), and it’s not based on any other Linux distribution, which makes quite a change these days. I was eager to see how it had developed since our last encounter.

Linux

What Free Software, Linux and Microsoft Have Taught Us

Filed under
OSS

linuxtoday.com: All in all, I think Free Software users know from practical experience how to question and why to question; we also have learned about freedom in a way that most people don't get to--as a practical reality, an experience, not just a slogan.

Linux Needs Open Multimedia on the Web

Filed under
Software

linux-mag.com: The state of web multimedia on Linux is pitiful. Proprietary codecs, plug-ins and closed standards are helping to keep Linux a second rate citizen. What Linux needs is not another proprietary framework like Moonlight, but more open standards. Can Google help by making YouTube a Theora-fest?

When the Contribution Model Fails

Filed under
OSS

bushweed.blogspot: I'm a big advocate of Open Source software. However Open Source has it's flaws. The contribution model may be one of it's greatest strengths, but is also a big weakness.

Linux vs Windows 7

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

tuxradar.com: It's something of a tradition that we pit the latest version of Windows against our trusty old operating system. This isn't because we want to raise the profile of Windows, or ignite further flamewars on which is better or worse. It's about understanding the market and understanding the competition.

readwriteweb.com: Late last year, we boldly proclaimed that your next computer might be a Linux PC. Thanks to the ever-growing market for the low-end machines dubbed "netbooks," this seemed like a real possibility at the time. But then...

Filed under

PCLinuxOS 2009.1 Minime Review

Filed under
PCLOS

pclinuxos2007.blogspot: Mini-Me is my personal favorite! Why? Because it's the best, the smallest and the most perfect distribution. It gives a bloat-free linux experience.

Red Hat doesn’t have a monopoly on Open Source

Filed under
Linux

beranger.org: Jim, you’re simply arrogant (à la Steve Ballmer, just in a different way) when you say: "If you think about it, at Red Hat, we’re defining a whole new business model. Red Hat is the only model that exists that is able to monetize something that’s free."

Health Check: Mono,Too much monkey business?

Filed under
Software

h-online.com: At the turn of this decade Miguel de Icaza was the unblemished hero of the free software movement and chief architect and co-creator, with Federica Mena, of the GNOME project, which had come into being as the free software response to KDE. Now de Icaza is regarded with suspicion because of his support for Mono. What happened to bring about this change?

A Visual Review to deepin 15.4 GNU/Linux Beauty

deepin 15.4 is really beautiful in every single detail. The beauty of deepin lies on its simplicity, drop shadow and translucency style, with completeness of feature. All the beauty cost only around 730MB of RAM at idle time. It's so user-friendly until I believe kids can use GNU/Linux easier with this. It has its native applications that are fulfilling daily needs, complete in feature, and always with pretty look. The desktop menu understands the users, with greatly accessible features. The Control Center is great as well, making the users have complete control with less learning curve. I believe anyone formerly using Windows, MacOS, Android, even any GNU/Linux distro will be easy to switch to deepin 15.4. Read more

Q4OS 1.8.4, Orion

The new Q4OS 'Orion' 1.8.4 stable release is out to implement several improvements and fixes. The most significant new feature is integration of alternative desktop environments into the native Q4OS 'Desktop profiler' utility. Users can now select alternative desktops to install and use alongside the default Q4OS Trinity desktop. LXQT support has been depreciated in Q4OS Orion, while we intend to support it thoroughly in the Q4OS 'Scorpion' edition. Icedove messaging application is no more available by the Q4OS installer, as it has been replaced by the real Thunderbird 45.8 release. Read more
