Many many improvements, in particular in the area of containers, btrfs
hookup, and networkd. Also, many bugfixes. Enjoy!
Note that this version is not available in Fedora F22/F23 yet. The
linker on ARM segfaults. Since the i386 and x86_64 versions built
fine, I decided to release 219 anyway.
So is Linux a labour of love? I think that there is money to be made but not in the traditional sense of just making a single product and selling it. If distributions are out to generate income then they have to be a bit creative about how they do that. Multiple revenue streams are definitely going to be important.
I think charging for a download may help to generate income in the short term but it will ultimately mean missing out on possible revenue streams later on.
The debate is much like the newspaper paywalls. Would you really pay to read a newspaper online when the BBC provide similar or sometimes better information for free? Therein lies the problem for Elementary.
Every time a new boutique Linux distro rolls out into the limelight it seems the same two thoughts cross my mind. First, the distro’s developer must be excited to present their vision to potential uses and work hard to provide the best distro possible. Second, this also means that if something happens to the developer the project can instantly end in its tracks.
In this article, we’ll examine the risks of relying on a boutique Linux distro and what to do when you're forced to switch due to a distro ending its development.
The inquiry from Malawi was passed to our local expert, Esben Aaberg, who after a few hours of work got the dictionary to work. Unfortunately dictionaries can not be registered without the language been known by LibreOffice. Instead, Esben "cheated" by using a language code from another language. Of course we need the language Chichewa registered, but here and now, it works after all.
The MakuluLinux KDE 7 distribution has been officially released this past weekend, bringing a rock solid, stable, secure, responsive, safe and gorgeous KDE graphical desktop environment based on the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Core operating system, which is supported with software updates and security patches until 2019.
Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux kernel was under heavy fire after a leak by Edward Snowden which showed that Skynet, the US-based company which builds robots, was using the Linux kernel to power their machines. Skynet is one of the most secretive US companies which reportedly operates from a leased hanger in Area 51.
However, Linus Torvalds denied any association or knowledge of Skynet Corporation. During a local Linux conference in Portland, Linus was addressing a small crowd when a reddit user asked if he had been approached by Skynet? Linus, with a faint smile on his face, said ‘no’ while nodding (in yes).
We know how much you love screenshot tours, so at your request, we have decided to make a screenshot tour for the recently released Bridge Linux Xfce 2015.02 computer operating system based on the powerful Arch Linux distribution using the ArchBang sources.
Linus Torvalds has yet to reveal whether Linux 3.20 will be re-branded as Linux 4.0, but it seems the community at least really wants this version bump to happen.
Last week on Linus Torvalds' Google+ page he polled the community over Linux 3.20 vs. 4.0. Torvalds has yet to say what version he's going with for this next kernel -- it will probably be revealed next weekend when he's closing the merge window and bumping for -rc1 -- but it seems overwhelmingly that people want this Linux 3.20 to 4.0 jump.
