Moving to Linux

Filed under
Linux

linuxinexile.blogspot: How do you move an organization to Linux? What's the process? It's not as simple as coming in over the weekend, re-installing everyone's desktops with the latest Linux distro, and hoping things go for the best. You need a real transition plan, a strategy to move the organization.

liliputing.com: Oh, Fusion Garage… Lately it seems the only good news which surfaces about your JooJoo tablet is the result of someone who doesn’t work for you doing something awesome with it — like installing Windows 7 on it.

Filed under
Linux

cbojar.blogspot: The first topic on my mind is the elusiveness of the stable triple in the Linux market. What do I mean by the stable triple? Let's look at some examples:

Fedora 11 reaches end of life

h-online.com: Fedora developer and Red Hat employee Paul W. Frields has announced that Fedora 11, code named "Leonidas", has reached its end of life.

More distros at 150Mhz, both good and bad

Linux

kmandla.wordpress: Arch Linux isn’t the only thing I have installed or used on the Mebius, since I brought it home a week ago. I did a few trial runs with other distros and OSes, although not all of them were as successful as archlinux-i586.

You Say Linux, I Say GNU/Linux

Filed under
Linux

linux-magazine.com: The older I get, the more certain I am that most discussions consist of arguing over half-truths. In fact, the more strongly everyone argues, the more likely that nobody has the complete truth. And nowhere does these hard-won truisms seem more accurate than in the age-old argument over whether the operating system we all live by should be called Linux or GNU/Linux.

Put your knowledge where your mouth is.

toolbox.com/blogs: I get it, I get it. Your a fan boy, or fan person to be politically correct. As far as I am concerned it is everyones right and privilege to be able to express their beliefs. I also think that if somebody is going to make a statement then they should be able to back it up.

The myth of Arch Linux and the i586

Filed under
Linux

kmandla.wordpress: Jared asked the right question yesterday, when I proclaimed I had Arch Linux running on a Pentium MMX machine. How does a distro cut to fit the i686 generation downscale to an i586?

“Kiddie” Linux distros

Filed under
Linux

robinzrants.wordpress: But most of the grownup Linux users I know (and I’d bet the majority of all Linux users of any age) do use the so-called “kiddie” distros because they’re not into running the operating system, they just want to run applications.

Advocacy group: ‘ICT procurement is broken’

Public administrations in the EU are hindering competition by asking for specific brands and products when procuring software solutions, says OpenForum Europe, an organisation campaigning for an open, competitive ICT market. “No progress has been made in recent years. In fact the practice of referring to brand names in public procurement has become more widespread”, OFE says. Read more

7-Way Linux Graphics Card Comparison With Civilization Beyond Earth

The performance of Civilization: Beyond Earth on Linux is quite demanding. The OpenBenchmarking.org test profile of Civilization Beyond Earth uses roughly the high image quality settings and for this article the tests were done at 1920 x 1080. As the results are about to show, even with modern graphics cards, it's quite a chore putting out a decent frame-rate at 1080p for this strategy game. Read more
