scrye.com: So, after having a pretty productive Fedora day yesterday (I cleaned up EPEL buildroot override tags/closed tickets, caught up on all my mailing lists and such, started in on some package reviews, helped people on IRC, etc) I decided to play around with some new IRC clients today.

Software

blog.thesilentnumber.me: We have extremely promising open source media editing applications for Linux like the Jokosher audio editor and PiTiVi video editor, both built on the powerful GStreamer framework. While things may be looking up, one shortcoming is an ever increasing problem that deserves some more serious attention.

KDE or Openbox

celettu.wordpress: I love KDE, and the latest release is better than ever. It’s easy, fast, beautiful, all that. So when I installed Arch on another partition and slapped Openbox on it I certainly didn’t think I would consider using it full time.

jimmyburnett.com: If you’re into any type of 3D development in Linux be sure to give Arch a try with your 3D tools. The i686 compiled binaries offered up by Arch Linux gave me a little more of an edge, especially when it came to developing models.

education.zdnet: It’s been a while since Ubuntu could be called a leaner alternative to Windows. However, one of the nicer features of Linux (at least for the end user) is the ability to choose the windowing environment with which we interact with the underlying OS.

  • The Best Graphics Card Brands For NVIDIA/AMD GPUs As A Linux Consumer?
    One of the most frequent topics I'm emailed about is any brand recommendations among NVIDIA and AMD AIB partners for graphics cards. For Linux users, is there a particular brand preference for graphics cards? The short story is, no, there isn't one particular brand when selecting either a GeForce or Radeon graphics card that a Linux gamer/enthusiast should go with over another AIB partner. Over the past 12 years of running Phoronix, there has been no single AIB partner that superbly stands out compared to the rest when it comes to graphics card AIB partner brands like ASUS, Zotac, HIS, MSI, etc. They all work under Linux, rarely the AIB differences extend beyond the heatsink/cooler and any default clock speed differences, and I haven't seen one that's over-the-top crazy about Linux. I also haven't seen any major partner consistently put the Tux logo or other Linux markings on their product packaging, let alone incorporate any Linux drivers onto their CD/DVD driver media.
