  • AWS launches EC2 Dedicated Hosts so you can bring your own Linux licence

    AMAZON WEB SERVICES (AWS) has announced the arrival of a new service called EC2 Dedicated Hosts.

    The new feature will allow companies to run the software they pay for on multiple virtual machines using a single server, giving more granular management to finding what applications are working on what virtual machine.

    AWS has outlined the advantages of EC2 Dedicated Hosts in a blog post by evangelist Jeff Barr.

  • Unikernels, meet Docker!

Look over the collection of unikernel projects and contribute your experiences to this blog!

  • Distro hopping: feeling good with my time on LXLE

    Well the time has come to officially switch off from LXLE. This time around however I find myself in a weird spot. I’ve honestly struggled with LXLE; not in using the distribution itself but rather coming up with things to write about it. That isn’t to say that LXLE is bad by any stretch of the imagination, in fact it is quite good, it’s just that once you get used to the light weight desktop environment (DE) there is a perfectly capable “heavy weight” distribution underneath. What I mean by this is that once you get used to the DE and it fades into the background you’re left with a perfectly functional distribution that could just as easily have been Ubuntu or Linux Mint or Fedora or {insert your favourite one here}.

  • Netrunner 17 'Horizon' is here -- download the Kubuntu-based Linux distro now

    About a week ago, the Netrunner team released an update to its rolling release operating system. Based on Arch/Manjaro, I advised Linux beginners to steer clear, and instead opt for the Kubuntu-based variant. There are a couple of reasons for this. For one, the Ubuntu community is arguably friendlier and better for newbies -- there are a ton of instructions and .deb files available too. More importantly, however, the rolling release could be less stable overall.

  • Why ChromeOS Tops Linux, Mac and Windows

    Much like mishandling a sharp stick, any operating system that easily allows you to access root or super user powers is potentially dangerous. In 2015, the single biggest threat to your computer's security is sitting at your desk, typing on your keyboard. This is why more people than ever are gravitating towards tablets, smart phones and yes, Chromebooks as their main computing device.

    All of these devices come locked down so that accessing something dangerous to that device is much more difficult to do. Whether you run rm -r / on a Mac or on Linux, or install something terrible on Windows – there are simply too many opportunities for the less tech savvy to destroy their operating system installation.

  • 5 Use Cases for Linux Virtual Desktops

    Many people liked the idea of running a Linux desktop; but in reality, when asked if Linux desktops were running on their physical systems, the answer was also No. Now, however, it seems like the tide has turned and more enterprises are starting to run Linux desktops. That means they're looking for a more secure and manageable way to deal with them.

  • Netrunner 17 Linux OS Launches with Gorgeous KDE Plasma 5.4.3 Desktop

  • The Pebble that Can Protect Your Home Network From Cyber Perils

    Yossi adds that the device features the capacity to know whenever your TV is recording your voice even if it is switched off and when it uploads the information to the cloud.

    "We all lock our front doors and yet our devices are wide open", explains Yossi Atias, Dojo-Labs' CEO and cofounder.

    Security systems devoted to the Internet of Things are becoming more common and more sophisticated.

    The number of connected devices now exceeds 4 billion, according to Gartner, and is expected to surge to 6 billion in 2016. The proliferation of Wi-Fi-enabled things-from baby monitors to smart locks-makes the home vulnerable to cyber threats, of which the Federal Bureau of Investigation recently issued a warning. The device is created to monitor the behavior of each device that is connected to your home network and help ensure your privacy. And it grows more intelligent with each new gadget and intrusion.

  • Snowdrift.coop Joins OSI as Newest Affiliate Member

    The Open Source Initiative® (OSI), recognized globally for promoting and protecting open source software and development communities, announced today the affiliate membership of Snowdrift.coop. Snowdrift.coop is building a sustainable funding platform for freely-licensed works. Unlike the one-to-one matching used in traditional fundraising, Snowdrift.coop uses a many-to-many matching pledge that creates a network effect (like the internet itself) so that each donation and even projects reinforce one another. A fundamental difference between Snowdrift.coop and one-time fundraising campaigns that help projects get started is that Snowdrift.coop pays out monthly to provide sustainability for ongoing work.

  • Mirantis and FusionStorm Team on OpenStack Appliances

  • The Dual Boot Deception

    In this video, I’ll go through many of the perils of dual booting and I’ll also explain why I don’t usually support systems that are configured in a dual boot environment. It’s not just Linux that has problems in a dual boot setup; Windows seems to come up with strange issues when paired with Linux as well. There is also a psychological factor to consider. Constantly comparing and keeping up with two operating systems on the same machine can trigger all kinds of OCD behavior.

  • Wine Is Now Under A Code Freeze For Wine 1.8

    It was announced today via WWN 402 that last week's Wine 1.7.55 is the last development freeze with now going into a code freeze for version 1.8.

    Wine 1.8 will likely be released by year's end and until then will be weekly release candidates to ensure sufficient test coverage, as noted by the World Wine News.

  • Library versioning

    KDE Frameworks (and, in the past, kdelibs) approached this by defining some arbitrarily high minor version (typically 90+) to indicate pre-releases for the next major release. So the pre-release Frameworks were numbered like 4.90.1.

    So where is all of this going? Well, CMake provides a helpful function to write package version information files that allow find_package() calls to only find compatible versions. So if you use the SameMajorVersion scheme, find_package(Foo 4.3) will find Foo 4.3.0 and Foo 4.5.2, but not Foo 4.2.5 or Foo 5.1.1. However, if project Foo uses the “high minor = next version prerelease” scheme, it will also find Foo 4.90.1, which is not compatible with Foo 4.3.

  • KNewPasswordWidget lands in KWidgetsAddons

    A new widget called KNewPasswordWidget has been added to the KWidgetsAddons framework, starting from 5.16. I decided to create this widget because sometimes you cannot just use KNewPasswordDialog to ask the users for a new password. This is the case when you need to add further options to the same dialog. This widget is meant to be easily embedded in such a custom password dialog, without having to code it from scratch.

  • A Closer Look At Microsoft And Red Hat Partnership

    Red Hat was conspicuous by its absence to the Azure party. Given that majority of the customers were running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) for enterprise workloads, there was no direct migration path to Azure. Microsoft recommended CentOS and Oracle Linux – the two distributions that are highly compatible with RHEL – as alternatives. At the same time, RHEL was a first class citizen on Amazon EC2 allowing customers to bring their own license or pay by usage. Though it was possible to technically run RHEL on Azure, the customers didn’t prefer it due to lack of assurance from Red Hat. Microsoft approached Red Hat to bring RHEL to Azure, but it fell through due to the licensing and IP issues. The legal teams at both the ends could never come to a conclusion on the working model, which delayed the partnership by a few years.
