I can confirm that KMail is not free bug, Akonadi is not perfect too. We work a lot each days to fix the bugs. You can make the same blog about each application which doesn’t work as you want. You can criticize all these programs and wrote that developers lose their time to work on. I hope that you wrote some blog as it for Kernel Linux, Xorg, LibreOffice etc. for sure they are not perfect too.
While the original Linux distribution is enough for developers, students need something more. Therefore, Francesco Milesi has developed Birds Linux 8.0 as the latest open source Linux distribution to ease learning for students.
Unlike its previous versions, Birds Linux 8.0 comes preloaded with GNOME 3 desktop environment to deliver a fresh experience to students. It is based on the widely known Sabayon distribution, backed by Linux Kernel 4.5 series.
It's been quite a while since the last Gentoo LiveDVD release, but a new image has surfaced this weekend as Gentoo 20160514 and codenamed the "Choice Edition" release.
This first Gentoo release of 2016 is powered by the Linux 4.5 kernel and features X.Org Server 1.18.3, KDE Plasma 5.6.2, Firefox 45.0, LibreOffice 5.1, GIMP 2.9.2, and many other packaging updates.
During the last couple days, the community was strong in producing and submitting fixes to make it possible for GCC 6 to become the default compiler for our distribution. But it’s not entirely there yet.
One thing differentiating Ubuntu Linux from other Linux distributions is its desktop environment, this was one thing I found interesting about Ubuntu, when I had just moved from Windows.
The Ubuntu desktop environment, Unity is a unique and unified experience like other popular DEs like GNOME, KDE, and many others.
Like FreeBSD Jails and Solaris Zones, Linux containers are self-contained execution environments -- with their own, isolated CPU, memory, block I/O, and network resources -- that share the kernel of the host operating system. The result is something that feels like a virtual machine, but sheds all the weight and startup overhead of a guest operating system.
There’s a lot of hype in the air about blockchain technology at the moment. A recent World Economic Forum report predicts that by 2025 10% of GDP will be stored on blockchains or blockchain related technology. This means it’s probably something which everyone involved in business should take notice of. However, there’s still a lack of understanding about what it is, and what it does.
