the announcement of Mountain Lion is the Vista moment for Apple, it's that point when many Apple users will take time to step back and think about the Operating system on their Apple PC.

What the difference a distro release makes..

Filed under
Linux

I'm a firm believer in Sabayon, i've been using it since the heady days of version 3 with the DVD ISO which contained nearly 4GB of both Gnome and KDE distros and an hours installation. This gave the user a bleeding edge distro which implemented Compiz first and better than anyone else as an example.however I have to say I'm just a little disappointed in this release with it's implementation of Gnome 3.

Filed under
Linux

2011 was a very interesting year for Linux, the Jewel in the crown Ubuntu got some very bad press mostly over Unity. KDE started to get its act together and took great strides to provide a usable GUI and the Gnome Team took minimalisation to a whole new level for GUI's with Gnome 3.

So what does 2012 have to offer for the Linux Community?

Thanks for the memories Firefox and goodbye..

Filed under
Linux

I have very fond memories of the first time i found Firefox or Phoenix as it was known almost 10 years ago in 2002. It was a breath of fresh air compared to the then seemingly bloated and slow Internet Explorer browser. Netscape was still around at these times and as Phoenix became Firebird, and Firebird became Firefox early features such as Tabbed Browsing, Plugins and Extentions set Firefox far ahead of the competition.

Linux Mint 12 review

Filed under
Linux

Linux Mint 12 is the latest edition of the popular Linux distribution. Not to be confused with Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE), the version of Linux Mint that is based on Debian, Linux Mint 12 is based on Ubuntu Desktop. This release, code-named Lisa, comes with more desktop options than you would normally find on a Ubuntu-based distribution.

  • LLVM Patches Confirm Google Has Its Own In-House Processor
    Patches published by Google developers today for LLVM/Clang confirm that the company has at least one in-house processor of its own. Jacques Pienaar, a software engineer at Google since 2014, posted patches today seeking to mainline a "Lanai" back-end inside LLVM. He explained they want to contribute their Lanai processor to the LLVM code-base as they continue developing this back-end with a focus on compiling C99 code. He mentions Lanai is a simple in-order 32-bit processor with 32 x 32-bit registers, two registers with fixed values, four used for program state tracking, and two reserved for explicit usage by user, and no floating point support.

  • Unikernels, Docker, and Why You Should Care
    Docker's recent acquisition of Unikernel Systems has sent pulses racing in the microservice world. At the same time, many people have no clue what to make of it, so here's a quick explanation of why this move is a good thing. Although you may not be involved in building or maintaining microservice-based software, you certainly use it. Many popular Web sites and services are powered by microservices, such as Netflix, eBay and PayPal. Microservice architectures lend themselves to cloud computing and "scale on demand", so you're sure to see more of it in the future.
