As promised I am going to write a follow up post about how this was handled and what the result of the cooperation with Gentoo’s infrastructure team was.

From Windows to Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

billhiggins.us/weblog: Chief among these “things I’d like to change when I have the time” was my use of Windows XP as my operating system. So I downloaded a Ubuntu ISO CD image, burned that, backed up my data, then formatted my hard drive and installed Linux.

Ubuntu

rfdlinux.wordpress: My broadband connection was barely 24 hours old when work began on migrating to the latest version of Ubuntu. Hardy Heron, as it’s called, is very nice on the Mini. What follows is how I did it, what I used, what worked, and what didn’t.

The 'killer' linux ....Ships AHOY!

Filed under
Linux

linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: Everyone uses the "car" analogy. Expecting Linux to someday ZOOM ahead of the pack and leave the likes of MS and Apple in the dust on the track. This mental approach doesn't always do it for people and they get discouraged because of the mindset like that they walked in with.

The popular emergence of apt-git?

Filed under
Software

jldugger.livejournal: It's no secret that Canonical is a large proponent of Bazaar (bzr) and would like to use Ubuntu as a guinea pig for large scale deployments. At UDS Prague, James Westby gave an interview about using "distributed version control systems" (DVCS) for coordinating development. The interviewer is a bit confused about how the Ubuntu flavors interact, so I think an explanation of DVCS and Ubuntu development is in order.

Free as in Beer

Filed under
OSS

sharplinux.blogspot: As I mentioned in my last Independence Day post, most free software is free in the monetary sense of the word. One of Richard Stallman's memorable and concise ways of making the "free" distinction is to say "think free speech, not free beer." The problem with the term "free software" seems to be that many users can't think past the "free-as-in-beer" quality.

Two great time-saving tips for Firefox 3

Filed under
Moz/FF

techspot.com/blog: Firefox is by far the most used alternative browser. I believe that comes in part thanks to its flexibility for customization and the myriad of useful add-ons you can get for it. My following tips, however, lay on the side of about:config tweaks.

How I got over the hurdles to migrate from XP to Kubuntu 8.04

Filed under
Ubuntu

agileskills2.org/blog: I find that Kubuntu needs a few critical tweaks before it is useable by end users, in particular, in the CJK market. Such tweaks are not very well documented and take quite some serious research efforts, even for an experienced Linux/Ubuntu server administrator.

SUSE
HowTos

This tutorial shows how you can set up an OpenSUSE 11 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

KDE

practical-tech.com: OK, I’ve now tried KDE 4.1. I’d been assured that it would be better than KDE 4.0x. It is. That’s the good news. The bad news is that I still find KDE 4.1 to be inferior to KDE 3.5x. KDE’s developers believe that KDE 4.1 “can fully replace KDE 3 for end users.” I don’t see it.

Ubuntu Hardy Heron is Unstable

Filed under
Ubuntu

opencomputing.blogspot: I've been running Hardy now for quite a while, and I've come to the conclusion that it isn't stable. I will probably be downgrading to Gutsy very soon, however much I dislike the idea of doing so. To me, downgrading doesn't feel like I'm being part of the solution, but rather that I'm just bypassing the problem.

Giving Linux and LibreOffice a Try for Your Home Office

Running your home office on a tight budget? There's a way to get all of your software—operating system (OS), productivity suite, scores of applications—completely free. It'll cost you, but not in the way you might think. This life-changing alternative is Linux, which gives you more flexibility, more have-it-your-way customization, and more control than Windows or OS X users could ever dream of. I caution that it'll cost you because it's decidedly not for everyone. While it's far friendlier today than it was a year or even six months ago, Linux still requires you to invest, nay, enjoy some time spent setting up and tinkering with your PC.

Containers and Servers

  • What are Linux containers?
  • Does your company have a plan for adopting containers?
    Linux containers are definitely attracting a lot of attention as cloud-native alternatives to virtual machines for application isolation and deployment, but where does your company sit on the adoption spectrum? As organizations grapple with how best to make business decisions in the face of challenges from limited resources, both human and capital, and find the speed of competition rapidly advancing, they must look to not just new technologies but new paradigms in order to stay afloat. Many organizations are looking to Linux containers as a part of this solution.
  • Using nano-segmentation Apcera looks to bring cloud trust to Docker container deployment

Unrequited Microsoft, Red Hat in the Way, LinDoz

Christine Hall penned an opt-ed today saying that she remembers Microsoft's dirty tactics, tactics they still employ while professing love for Linux. The media can fawn all they want, but Hall will never trust them. Elsewhere, Jack Germain said LinDoz is a "smooth Windows-Cinnamon blend" and Jamie Watson had nice things to say about KaOS 2016.06. Mint 18 Cinnamon and MATE editions are planned for this week and Red Hat said "RHEL is getting in the way." Read more
