Historians and detectives keep track of data with open source tool
Segrada is a piece of open source software that allows historians (and detectives) to keep track of their data. Unlike wikis or archival databases, its focus lies on information and interrelations within it. Pieces of information might represent persons, places, things, or concepts. These "nodes" can be bidirectionally connected with each other to semantically represent friendship, blood relation, whereabouts, authorship, and so on. Hence the term "semantic graph database," since information can be displayed as a graph of semantically connected nodes.
The Linux Foundation regularly awards scholarships as part of its Linux Training Scholarship Program. In the five years that the Linux Foundation has hosted this program, it has awarded 34 scholarships totaling more than $100,000 in free training. In conjunction with this program, we are featuring recent scholarship recipients in the hope that their stories will inspire others. In this installment of the series, we talk with Erich Noriega, a recipient in the Sys Admin Superstar category.
While Linux distros typically use less system resources, and therefore offer better performance over Windows counterparts (don't get me wrong, I love my Windows laptop), it's still wise to monitor your system's health. Over at Opensource.com, David Both has a neat write up on thermal stress, and offers a few resources for Linux users. These range from a few commands, like sensors-detect and hddtemp, and even the super userful application GKrellM.
Hatred is one of the most controversial games that have been published on Steam, and it looks like it’s also coming to the Linux platforms sometime in the near future.
The real kwin_wayland will use the exact same library, on the server as we do in our tests, but instead of using “virtual screens”, it does actually interact with the hardware, for example through libdrm on more sensible system or through libhybris on ones less so.
