We also need to prepare 2D assets (textures), for which GIMP and Inkscape are both used. I would like to get MyPaint and Krita (which I prefer to GIMP) installed as well, but the computers we use are running Scientific Linux, which is a rather conservative distro, and installing them has proved unjustifiably time consuming for the support staff. Would also like G'Mic (a plugin for GIMP and Krita) as it contains some useful tools for preparing textures.

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.

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.

Mint 18 Cinnamon and MATE editions are planned for this week and Red Hat said "RHEL is getting in the way." Read more
