Elementary, My Dear Linux User

Filed under
Linux

Upon first boot, Elementary obviously is designed to look and function like OS X. Although that might turn the stomachs of die-hard Linux fans, it provides an interesting platform for folks who appreciate the clean, functional layout Apple provides on its flagship OS. Elementary OS includes the Ubuntu Software Center, and like most variants, it can install any program in the Ubuntu repositories. Out of the box, however, it's a clean, fast operating system that people familiar with OS X will recognize right away.

Linux

Former Unbounded Robotics execs have launched “Fetch Robotics” with $3 million in funding, and will ship a ROS-on-Linux mobile manipulator bot in Q2 2015.

A startup called Fetch Robotics has announced $3 million in Series A financing from O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures (OATV) and Shasta Ventures, along with a development team that jumped from the apparently now defunct Unbounded Robotics. Fetch Robotics plans to announce and ship two mobile manipulation robots in the second quarter that are aimed principally at the logistics and light industrial markets, “as well as for other human-robot collaboration opportunities,” says the company.

Filed under
Linux

The changes going in through Ingo Molnar's branches aren't incredibly exciting this round, but it looks like the scheduler tree updates have the potential to be semi-exciting. In particular, the kernel scheduler changes have minor micro-optimizations, various fixes and enhancements, and a idle-poll handler fix that has the potential to result in power-savings.

Hey Windows User, Should You Switch To Linux or Mac?

Filed under

Linux

Mac

You can answer three questions to choose between Linux or Windows, and you can gripe about how Windows is killing the traditional desktop, but all that is fluff. The purpose of an operating system is to put forth an environment where you can get things done—where you can get things done. You are what matters and everything else is bullshit.

Yocto Project tackles Linux design incompatibilities

Filed under
Linux

Open-source technology is one solution to this challenge, especially where it allows the tight integration of software with a range of hardware options. 
An important aspect of this is the creation of open-source platforms around the Linux operating system, which has a growing software infrastructure that OEMs can take advantage of to develop and debug designs.

Filed under
Linux

Today we are excited to see that the source code for Tizen 2.3 has been finally released. The last code drop for mobile was back in November 2013, so this is seen as something quite overdue by platform developers. We hope more OEMs will now stop sitting on the sidelines and join Samsung in developing Tizen based Smartphones and wearables, that will further enrich the Tizen ecosystem.

Millions Of Opportunities For GNU/Linux To Take Over

Filed under
GNU
Linux

No matter. Millions of servers will not be properly migrated to M$’s next release on time so they might as well migrate to GNU/Linux and take charge of their futures rather than be dependent on M$’s schedule and desire for cash. Why should your organization uproot itself because another organization wants a fresh influx of cash? Do the right thing. Go to Debian GNU/Linux and FLOSS. It will work for you, not M$.

Manjaro Linux Phasing out i686 (32bit) Support

In a not very surprising move by the Manjaro Linux developers, a blog post was made by Philip, the Lead Developer of the popular distribution based off Arch Linux, On Sept. 23 that reveals that 32-bit support will be phased out. In his announcement, Philip says, “Due to the decreasing popularity of i686 among the developers and the community, we have decided to phase out the support of this architecture. The decision means that v17.0.3 ISO will be the last that allows to install 32 bit Manjaro Linux. September and October will be our deprecation period, during which i686 will be still receiving upgraded packages. Starting from November 2017, packaging will no longer require that from maintainers, effectively making i686 unsupported.” Read more

Korora 26 'Bloat' Fedora-based Linux distro available for download -- now 64-bit only

Fedora is my favorite Linux distribution, but I don't always use it. Sometimes I opt for an operating system that is based on it depending on my needs at the moment. Called "Korora," it adds tweaks, repositories, codecs, and packages that aren't found in the normal Fedora operating system. As a result, Korora deviates from Red Hat's strict FOSS focus -- one of the most endearing things about Fedora. While you can add all of these things to Fedora manually, Korora can save you time by doing the work for you. Read more

BackSlash Linux Olaf

While using BackSlash, I had two serious concerns. The first was with desktop performance. The Plasma-based desktop was not as responsive as I'm used to, in either test environment. Often times disabling effects or file indexing will improve the situation, but the desktop still lagged a bit for me. My other issue was the program crashes I experienced. The Discover software manager crashed on me several times, WPS crashed on start-up the first time on both machines, I lost the settings panel once along with my changes in progress. These problems make me think BackSlash's design may be appealing to newcomers, but I have concerns with the environment's stability. Down the road, once the developers have a chance to iron out some issues and polish the interface, I think BackSlash might do well targeting former macOS users, much the same way Zorin OS tries to appeal to former Windows users. But first, I think the distribution needs to stabilize a bit and squash lingering stability bugs. Read more
