zdnet.co.uk: Recently I've had some discussion with colleagues about Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux in comparison to each other. Generally, I've found that most people agree that Mac OS X [and Linux] is more stable than Windows. But after that being said, they come back with an apology for Microsoft.

dodonov.net: At request from my friends from ROSA Labs Smile , I was using a mac os x-based machine this week, to get a feeling on how it works, feels and looks like. As I had never used a mac before, it was certainly a nice experience, and I think I managed to extract the feeling of what is fundamentally different.

Ubuntu

junauza.com: Apple claims that OS X Lion has over 250 new features; however, only a handful of them are truly Wow!-worthy. If you’ve been a long-time Ubuntu-user, you must have noticed how inspired it is from Mac OS X. Well, if we’ve got a similar UI, then why not have some common features?

macworld.com: When the weekend comes, Macalope likes to put his hooves up and enjoy some alfalfa and a grain-based beverage. Is that too much to ask? Apparently it is, according to PCWorld’s Katherine Noyes. Why else would she have so thoughtlessly decided to write this insipid piece—”Post-MacDefender, Linux Looks Better Than Ever“—about Mac and Linux security?

linuxinsider.com: It's been just a little over a year since Linux Girl last raised the "pad" question with Linux bloggers, who were noncommittal at best back then. Now that we're on to the next iteration, she couldn't resist checking back to see if their opinions have changed.

Watch a working Project Ara prototype demonstrated ahead of Spiral 2 reveal

The engineers behind Project Ara are trying to make the last smartphone you'll ever need. Their design for a modular device has users slotting components — a camera, extra storage space, a Wi-Fi connector — into their phones, as and when they need them. It's an ambitious scheme, but engineers working at NK Labs in Boston have already produced a working prototype, which they showed off to modular smartphone evangelist Dave Hakkens during a recent visit.

Interview with Jessica Tallon of PyPump

There are several interesting projects out there which use PyPump. With my day job as a GNU MediaGoblin developer, we're going to be using it as a way of communicating between servers as a part of our federation effort. A great use I've seen is PumpMigrate, which will migrate one pump.io account to another. Another little utility that I wrote over the course of a weekend is p, which was made to be an easy way of making a quick post, bulk uploading photos, or anything you can script with the shell.

Black Lab Education Desktop 6.0.1 to Be Supported Until 2022

There are numerous Linux distributions that are oriented towards education, but you can never have too many in a domain such as this one. It's based on the Black Lab Professional Desktop, which is a very good and powerful solution. Interestingly enough, Black Lab Linux is actually based on Ubuntu, and the latest one uses the 14.04.1 base (Trusty Tahr). Just like the base that is used for this distribution, the desktop environment used is GNOME 3, but with a few extensions to make it somewhat different from the stock version and to provide users with better functionality. One of the most interesting aspects of this operating system is the fact that it has a very long support period, which, in theory, it should end in 2022. Read more
