cristalinux.blogspot: Every now and again at work, I am involved in helping end users (sales representatives) with their machines. Sometimes I am amazed at the beating those machines get, it is surprising they even boot after a year in the field.

Ubuntu

omgubuntu.co.uk: The Ubuntu 10.04 Live CD has ditched the boring ‘black on white text’ menu approach and instead delivers up a GUI menu. Whilst we’re still 2 months away from the final installer design, here’s a quick peek at it as it currently exists: -

manilastandardtoday.com: MAKE desktop Linux more attractive than Mac OS X. That was the challenge that Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth issued to open source developers in July 2008. Now, almost two years later, Shuttleworth seems ready to put his money where his mouth is.

Ubuntu: reverse type is cool. And unreadable

itwire.com: There are times when one gets the feeling that the good folk at Canonical who design and develop the Ubuntu GNU/Linux distribution have got their heads screwed on the right way. There are other times.

Ubuntu, The Ultimate Linux Distribution

Filed under
Ubuntu

daniweb.com: From its Debian roots to its commercially available support to its overwhelming popularity, Ubuntu is the ultimate Linux distribution. For me, Ubuntu became a significant force within the Linux community with its 2006 releases: 6.04 and 6.10. From April 2006, I've installed and used every new version.

KDE and Akademy

  • Plasma 5: Keeping an Eye on the Disk Quota
    At this year’s KDE conference Akademy, I was working on a small plasmoid to continuously track the disk quota. The disk quota is usually used in enterprise installations where network shares are mounted locally. Typically, sysadmins want to avoid that users copy lots of data into their folders, and therefor set quotas (the quota limit has nothing to do with the physical size of a partition). Typically, once a user gets over the hard limit of the quota, the account is blocked and the user cannot login anymore. This happens from time to time, since the users are not really aware of the current quota limit and the already used disk space.
  • KDEPIM 5.0
    KDEPIM 5.0 is the port of kdepim to kf5/qt5.
  • rsibreak port to KF5 started!
    I just started the port of rsibreak to KF5.
  • Akademy 2015
  • Akademy 2015 and Akademy-es 2015 recap
    Finally thanks to the both Akademy and Akademy-es sponsors. Specially Qindel, that sponsored us for the first time, hope we can continue the relationship in the future.
  • Plasma 5 (KDE) In Testing
    A few days ago, fellow Qt/KDE team member Lisandro gave an update on the situation with migration to Plasma 5 in Debian Testing (AKA Stretch). It’s changed again. All of Plasma 5 is now in Testing. The upgrade probably won’t be entirely smooth, which we’ll work on that after the gcc5 transition is done, but it will be much better than the half KDE4 SC half Kf5/Plasma 5 situation we’ve had for the last several days.

Red Hat and Fedora

Red Hat:
  • Red Hat support evolves with new Access Insights services
    Open source users flock to Red Hat for enterprise support, but not all subscribers like the way the company handles IT issues. The company recently launched an updated support service. User experience is important to Red Hat Inc., and it dedicated its day-three keynote at the Red Hat Summit last month to its support.
  • Citrix, Red Hat Helping Startup Companies Launch in Raleigh, N.C.
    Raleigh has seen a 23% increase in IT jobs
  • Red Hat Receives Average Recommendation of “Buy” from Analysts (NYSE:RHT)
    Several research firms have weighed in on RHT. Northland Securities reissued a “buy” rating and set a $92.00 target price (up from $85.00) on shares of Red Hat in a report on Thursday, June 25th. Northland Capital Partners upped their price objective on Red Hat from $85.00 to $92.00 in a report on Thursday, June 25th. Cantor Fitzgerald reiterated a “buy” rating on shares of Red Hat in a research report on Friday, June 26th. Deutsche Bank restated a “hold” rating and set a $75.00 price objective (up from $70.00) on shares of Red Hat in a research report on Thursday, July 2nd. Finally, JPMorgan Chase & Co. reaffirmed an “overweight” rating and issued a $85.00 target price (up previously from $82.00) on shares of Red Hat in a report on Thursday, July 2nd.
Fedora:
  • Helps Improve Quality Kernel in Fedora
  • Flock Update
    So the schedule for Flock is finally fixed and I have to update some things according to my last post. First the practical part of the Wallpaper Hunt is scheduled now for Friday now instead of Satruday. Addionally I will help Máirín Duffy on Saturday morning with the Inkscape and GIMP Bootcamp, guess which part I will do.
  • Fedora 22 on Cubietruck
    In previous post (How-to set up network audio server based on PulseAudio and auto-discovered via Avahi) I’ve wrote details how I set up network audio-server. Actually I’m using cubietruck there.
  • Testing systemd-networkd based Fedora 22 AMI(s)
    Few days back I wrote about a locally built Fedora 22 image which has systemd-networkd handling the network configuration. You can test that image locally on your system, or on an Openstack Cloud. In case you want to test the same on AWS, we now have two AMI(s) for the same, one in the us-west-1, and the other in ap-southeast-1. Details about the AMI(s) are below:

Leftovers: Debian

  • He who forgets history...
    Hi all, I just looked back on the Halloween Documents, specifically http://www.catb.org/esr/halloween/halloween1.html . Here are two quotes I find both interesting and timely: * Linux can win as long as services / protocols are commodities. * OSS projects have been able to gain a foothold in many server applications because of the wide utility of highly commoditized, simple protocols. By extending these protocols and developing new protocols, we can deny OSS projects entry into the market. So next time one of the new breed calls you a neckbeard for helping build a distro with simple protocols and services, show him http://www.catb.org/esr/halloween/halloween1.html . And try not to laugh when the whole thing goes right over his head.
  • My Free Software Activities in July 2015
    This month I have been paid to work 15 hours on Debian LTS.
