Switching to Ubuntu?

Filed under
Ubuntu

Okay, I am now in the process of, maybe, switching to Ubuntu Linux from Windows. I have read way too many “bad” reviews of Vista. One minute it’s the cat’s meow, the next it won’t run right unless you have a minimum of 4 Gigs of RAM. Sheesh. Thus the (more than likely) changeover.

Products evolve and mature. Sometimes they even get better. So when I installed Vista, I thought it would only be fair if I also downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu, burned it onto CD and installed it on another machine.

Ubuntu
HowTos

Network Bonding, otherwise known as port trunking allows you to combine multiple network ports into a single group, effectively aggregating the bandwidth of multiple interfaces into a single connection.

Arm Launches Mbed Linux and Extends Pelion IoT Service

Politics and international relations may be fraught with acrimony these days, but the tech world seems a bit friendlier of late. Last week Microsoft joined the Open Invention Network and agreed to grant a royalty-free, unrestricted license of its 60,000-patent portfolio to other OIN members, thereby enabling Android and Linux device manufacturers to avoid exorbitant patent payments. This week, Arm and Intel kept up the happy talk by agreeing to a partnership involving IoT device provisioning. Arm’s recently announced Pelion IoT Platform will align with Intel’s Secure Device Onboard (SDO) provisioning technology to make it easier for IoT vendors and customers to onboard both x86 and Arm-based devices using a common Peleon platform. Arm also announced Pelion related partnerships with myDevices and Arduino (see farther below). Read more

Programming: Version Control With Git, 5 Things Your Team Should Do to Make Pull Requests Less Painful and More GitHub Workflow Automation

  • How to Use Git Version Control System in Linux [Comprehensive Guide]
    Version Control (revision control or source control) is a way of recording changes to a file or collection of files over time so that you can recall specific versions later. A version control system (or VCS in short) is a tool that records changes to files on a filesystem. There are many version control systems out there, but Git is currently the most popular and frequently used, especially for source code management. Version control can actually be used for nearly any type of file on a computer, not only source code.
  • 5 Things Your Team Should Do to Make Pull Requests Less Painful
    A user story is a short description of a unit of work that needs doing. It’s normally told from the perspective of the user, hence the name. The journey towards a good pull request starts with a well-written user story. It should be scoped to a single thing that a user can do in the system being built.
  • More GitHub workflow automation
    The more you use computers, the more you see the potentials for automating everything. Who doesn't love that? By building Mergify those last months, we've decided it was time bring more automation to the development workflow.
