tmenguy.free.fr: The Linux community has come up with a bunch of new technologies to bring the UI eye candy on Linux to the next level. But as it may happen way too often in the Linux desktop community the emphasis is on the technical aspects , not at all on the ease of use and usability improvements.
blog.bytemark.co: My own groundhog day is a debate with customers about what constitutes "typical" Linux security precautions. If you’re a Linux administrator of any experience, you might find some of the following statements rather familiar:
- Linux flavors you might not have heard of
- How to know you’re dating a free software guy?
- Quote of the week
As a real Debian unstable addict, for a long time, I wanted to have real time notifications when upstream repository updates. So I can immediately check what's new and, time permitted, do the upgrade right away. Fortunately, I had some spare time few weeks ago that I invested in developing a neat script that you can find attached.
linux-gamers.net: Some updates have been done to the live.linuX-gamers.net project: Mastering environment for base of version 0.9.4 is available, Game packages for version 0.9.4 are available, and a Bunch of minor changes.
lucumr.pocoo.org: When github appeared on the internets for the first time, there was a short period of time when I saw the admins of that site jump into many IRC channels of projects that were using git already to switch to github for hosting. Personally for me that was alarming because after a while it appered that git without the hub was no accepted option any more for open source projects.
huffingtonpost.com: Like nearly everyone else these days, I use computers to write, read email, browse the web, store music and photos, and generally organize my life. Unlike most people, I'm using a free operating system, rather than Microsoft's Windows/Vista, or Apple's Mac OS. Specifically, I'm using Ubuntu.
towardsmecca.com: Back in March, I wrote about my first experience with Ubuntu. Although it was a very pleasant one, I kept my Vista installed and couldn’t convince my wife to switch over. I would sometimes boot into Vista myself to use Photoshop. That was the last string holding me back.
Also: Switching: Moving from openSUSE to Ubuntu
sjvn: This is more than a little cool. Those of us who don't like paying the Microsoft Office suite tax have been waiting for the next version of OpenOffice for some time now and it's almost ready to go.
news.cnet: Who knew that when eWeek's Peter Galli wrote in 2007 about Microsoft fracturing the open-source community, Galli would become the very person to help strengthen Microsoft's role in the open-source community?
This guide explains how you can install Drupal 6.4 on a lighttpd web server on Debian Etch. Drupal comes with an .htaccess file with mod_rewrite rules (for Apache) that do not work on lighttpd. Without this .htaccess file it is not possible to have clean URLs in your Drupal installation.
blogs.zdnet: Ubuntu is putting serious investment into improving the interface of its Linux. Mark Shuttleworth wants Linux to become comparable to the Apple Macintosh. Good idea. But the Ubuntu Developer Summit is taking the wrong approach.
xfce.org: After about 18 months of development, we are pleased to announce the release of Xfce 4.6 ALPHA, codename 'Pinkie'.
phoronix.com: Firefox, what's not to love about this open-source web browser? Well, a number of users following the development work on Ubuntu 8.10 (the Intrepid Ibex) are feeling rather outraged over Mozilla Firefox 3.0.2 and later. In the latest Ubuntu packages, Firefox requires an EULA (End-User License Agreement) be accepted the first time you launch the browser.
debaday.debian.net: No one likes to sit at home and wait for their favorite show to come on anymore and many have turned to buying hardware to record them for later viewing. Popular solutions to this problem include the expensive and proprietary TiVo and cable/satellite boxes with built-in TV recorders. MythTV aims to solve these problems without the need to rent a cable box ($15/month) or buy a TiVo (~$200).
kmandla.wordpress: A thoughtful forum member sent me a PM mentioning MilaX, which employs a lot of the lightweight software I mention here, and some more that I mention here. I promised to take a look at it and today, I finally got a free moment to do just that.
