Netflix now runs on Linux without any tweaks or work-around what so ever. I just noticed it when I installed a new Ubuntu system (14.10), with Chrome Beta 39.x and out of curiosity opened Netflix. It worked flawlessly. No agent switcher required anymore

Fedora 21 Alpha Release Has Three Flavors

Filed under

Over at the Fedora Project, we recently released the alpha version of Fedora 21. (And if the rest of this is all tl;dr, no problem – skip right to the pre-release download page, and there you are.)

Looking for a silly code name like in previous years? Sorry to disappoint – this is the first release to be just called by its number. That's not all we're doing differently, though. Last year, Fedora reached its 10-year anniversary, and as went into our second decade, we decided to take a step back and reflect on what changes it will take to continue to be a leading Free and Open Source Linux distribution over the next ten years.

How the open-source community should respond to Adobe pulling Linux support

Filed under

Software

So, what's the big deal? Adobe has clearly shown it has zero interest in supporting our platform of choice. This is not new news. In fact, Reader hadn't been updated for Linux since May, 2013. And what about the rest of Adobe products? Need I say more? And Reader for Linux has been in a pathetic state for a long time (even the Windows version is a mess). There are also other, better alternatives for Linux (such as Evince and Ocular).

The Limitations Of Wayland On Fedora 21

Following last month's release of Fedora 21 Alpha I played around with the GNOME Wayland session and shared my thoughts and ran some XWayland benchmarks. The Fedora Project Magazine has also now put the Fedora 21 gnome-session-wayland-session through its paces and delivered a brief write-up. In their write-up they cover a partial list of applications known to break under Wayland some shortcomings. They also do a brief overview of the Wayland architecture and other facts, if you've been living under a rock the past few years, or just not reading enough Phoronix.

One of the great benefits of Linux is that you can customize it however you’d like. And while some customizations can be completely unique, others can be oddly familiar to other operating systems. We’ve already shown you how you can make a Lubuntu installation look like Windows XP.

No interest in Poettering's problems, says Torvalds

Filed under

Linux creator Linus Torvalds has indicated that he has no interest in the problems faced by chief systemd developer Lennart Poettering that led to the latter blaming Torvalds for the negative feedback he (Poettering) has faced.

Also: Systemd backlash: Poettering blames Linus Torvalds

Systemd developer and Red Hat employee Lennart Poettering has taken aim at Linux creator Linus Torvalds in a rant on his blog, in which he blames Torvalds for the extent of enmity directed at him (Poettering).

In a long, rambling outburst, Poettering, who is well known for being precious, has squarely put the blame for the negative feedback he has received - which, he claims, extended to death threats - "on a certain circle of folks that play a major role in kernel development, and first and foremost Linus Torvalds himself".

[...]

Despite all his justifications, Poettering comes across as a cry-baby. And he has not heard of the old saying that people in glass houses should not throw stones. He has had plenty of memorable things to say on mailing lists himself. He appears to think he is without fault.

SparkyLinux 3.5.1 E19 is out

SparkyLinux 3.5.1 “Annagerman” Enlightenment 19 is ready to go.

Not so long ago, just three years I started my adventure with Enlightenment and Ubuntu.
At the beginning the name of the system was ue17r (Ubuntu E17 Remix) and it was far away from the current version of SparkyLinux. ue17r was a kind of experiment and I was trying to prove (myself) that a man such me, non-programmer, is able to do something what theoretically shouldn’t does.

  • Devuan GNU/Linux 1.0.0 "Jessie" Just Around the Corner, Release Candidate Out
    It's been five almost five months since the developers behind the Debian-based Devuan GNU/Linux operating system launched the second Beta version towards the first stable release of the OS, and they now announced the Release Candidate. The Devuan project continues its vision of providing a libre Debian fork without using the systemd init system, and the Release Candidate (RC) version brings the GNU/Linux distribution closer to a final release. The interesting fact is that this RC appears to be stable enough to be used for production work.
