Ubuntu and GNOME jump the shark  View Printable Version 
Sunday, October 16 2011 @ 03:05 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GnomeI upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 a week or so back in order to get a more recent version of SCons. 11.04 dropped me into the new “Unity” GNOME interface. There may be people in the world for whom Unity is a good idea, but none of them are me. The look is garish and ugly, and it takes twice as many clicks as it did before to get to an application through their supposedly “friendly” interface as it did in GNOME Classic. No, dammit, I do not want to text-search my applications to call one up!

Dungeons of Dredmor released for Linux  View Printable Version 
Saturday, October 15 2011 @ 08:45 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesLong ago, the Dark Lord Dredmor was bound in the darkest dungeons beneath the earth by great and mighty heroes. Centuries later, the magical bonds that hold him in place are loosening and his power grows ever stronger. The land cries out for a new hero, a powerful warrior or a mystic wizard like those spoken of in the prophecies of yore.

What they have, unfortunately, is you.

The demise of the Windows platform  View Printable Version 
Thursday, October 13 2011 @ 06:42 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsI bought a Windows game last week. What I got was a scenic tour through the demise of the Windows platform. I knew that Windows as gaming platform was troublesome, but it never was as clear that it's actually moving towards irrelevance. If you ever have seriously played games on Windows you know this cocktail of driver updates, googling error messages, entering illegiible cryptic codes from stickers hidden in game boxes, waiting for online activation, going through update popups of various origins, and what not. It took me something like two hours before I was even able to start the game. I love games, and I have played quite some games on Windows, but I might be done with this now.

Time-zone databse down  View Printable Version 
Thursday, October 06 2011 @ 05:13 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsToday, the time-zone database was closed down.

It is perhaps easy to read that line, think it doesn't affect you, and then move on. But thats just not the case.

The time-zone database (sometimes referred to as the Olson database) is the computing world's principle source of time-zone data. It is embedded in every Unix and Java for starters, and will be used by many websites and probably by your iPhone. You may know it via the IDs, such as "Europe/London" or "America/New_York".

Running KWin with OpenGL ES 2.0  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, October 04 2011 @ 11:20 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEI want to thank all users who tested our beta version and release candidates and ensured by that a regression free update. I am very glad on how smooth this major transition of the compositor seems to work according to the very low number of bug reports in this cycle.

On Mesa enabled desktop systems there is also the possibility to go a step further and leave GLX completely behind by compiling KWin for OpenGL ES/EGL only.

Learn the Ins and Out of OpenSSH on Your Linux PC  View Printable Version 
Thursday, September 22 2011 @ 09:43 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoWe’ve extolled the virtues of SSH numerous times, for both security and remote access. Let’s take a look at the server itself, some important “maintenance” aspects, and some quirks that can add turbulence to an otherwise smooth ride.

While we’ve written this guide with Linux in mind, this can also apply to OpenSSH in Mac OS X and Windows 7 via Cygwin.

Is Android really free software?  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 19 2011 @ 07:21 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceTo what extent does Android respect the freedom of its users? For a computer user that values freedom, that is the most important question to ask about any software system.

In the free/libre software movement, we develop software that respects users' freedom, so we and you can escape from software that doesn't. By contrast, the idea of "open source" focuses on how to develop code; it is a different current of thought whose principal value is code quality rather than freedom.Thus, the concern here is not whether Android is "open", but whether it allows users to be free.

The ultimate quest of bringing Visio support to LibreOffice  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, September 14 2011 @ 04:37 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsLegacy file formats are evil. They tend to have no written specifications, and when you start reverse-engineering them, you often discover layers of questionable solutions built on top of even more questionable solutions that are carried around for backwards compatibility sake.

So why go through pains of supporting them at all? Simply put, because it's the legacy which isn't always in the past really, because businesses don't like upgrades. Designers keep local cliparts in all kinds of arcane file formats, big publishing houses keep using DOC instead of DOCX, and system integration companies still toss around VSD files.
