Are We Witnessing the Decline of Ubuntu?  View Printable Version 
Monday, October 07 2013 @ 10:44 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsHistory is written years after the events it describes. But when the history of free software finally is written, I am increasingly convinced that this last year will be noted as the start of the decline of Ubuntu.

At first, the idea might seem ridiculous or spiteful. You can still find Ubuntu enthusiasts who exclaim over every move the distribution makes, and journalists still report founder Mark Shuttleworth's every word uncritically.

OpenZFS launch announcement  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 17 2013 @ 04:15 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsToday we announce OpenZFS: the truly open source successor to the ZFS project.

ZFS is the world's most advanced filesystem, in active development for over a decade. Recent development has continued in the open, and OpenZFS is the new formal name for this open community of developers, users, and companies improving, using, and building on ZFS. Founded by members of the Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and illumos communities, including Matt Ahrens, one of the two original authors of ZFS, the OpenZFS community brings together over a hundred software developers from these platforms.

Google Drive for Linux?  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 09 2013 @ 10:44 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFor some reason, Google seems to dislike Google Drive users who prefer Linux. I find this particularly strange, since Google's Chrome OS is based on Linux. Thankfully, the folks over at Insync not only provide Linux support for Google Drive syncing, they do it with style.

General NewsWith the rise of widespread government monitoring programs, Tox is an easy to use application that allows you to connect with friends and loved ones without anyone else listening in.

Tox is built with the idea that you can keep up with friends and family without having your privacy violated. While other big-name services require you to pay to unlock features, Tox is free in both price, and in liberty. That is, you’re free to do whatever you wish with Tox.

Daala - new general-purpose video codec  View Printable Version 
Thursday, June 20 2013 @ 07:31 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsThe next-generation VP9 and HEVC codecs are the latest incremental refinements of a basic codec design that dates back 25 years to h.261. This conservative, linear development strategy evolving a proven design has yielded reliable improvement with relatively low risk, but the law of diminishing returns is setting in. Recent performance increases are coming at exponentially increasing computational cost.

Daala tries for a larger leap forward— by first leaping sideways— to a new codec design and numerous novel coding techniques. In addition to the technical freedom of starting fresh, this new design consciously avoids most of the patent thicket surrounding mainstream block-DCT-based codecs. At its very core, for example, Daala is based on lapped transforms, not the traditional DCT.

Nvidia's 3D Tegra driver now open sourced  View Printable Version 
Sunday, April 07 2013 @ 09:24 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsSeems after getting the middle finger from Linus Torvalds for its hardware support and lack of open-source drivers, Nvidia has started to care more about the Linux users. Most recently, the GPU manufacturer has open-sourced its 3D Tegra driver code.

GlusterFS: First impressions  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, March 05 2013 @ 05:45 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsGlusterFS is a distributed file system which is supposed to scale to large storage sizes. Besides file distribution it also offers “RAID” like features: if you have two GlusterFS servers you can either stripe the data on both of them, or mirror them. Or, if you got more servers, you can even create more complex setups with a mixture of striping and mirroring. The client protocol is very similar to NFS, and thus clients can GlusterFS servers via GlusterFS-Fuse or directly via NFS.

Vim After 11 Years  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, February 20 2013 @ 09:19 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsAt some point over a decade ago I received my first real Unix account on Northeastern CCS’s computing infrastructure. I realized that my primary method of development — editing files in BBEdit and uploading them via FTP — wouldn’t scale for college-level projects, so I decided to learn how to efficiently edit files on a remote host. I used Pico for a while but became annoyed at its lack of syntax highlighting, so I used the only other editor I remembered bumping into: Vim.

What you can learn from the monster LibreOffice project  View Printable Version 
Saturday, February 16 2013 @ 08:04 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsA large legacy code base is a challenge for any team to embrace and improve. So how well does a distributed team of volunteers address the problem?

A talk at FOSDEM shed light on how the large and diverse team assembled by The Document Foundation (TDF) is approaching the huge LibreOffice code base left in the wake of Oracle's withdrawal from OpenOffice.org. The result is not only an impressive sequence of on-time releases, but also a range of development innovation. In particular, the "bi-bisect" technique they've developed could be a great approach for others faced with large, complex code bases.

What Is BlackBerry-Py?  View Printable Version 
Monday, January 28 2013 @ 11:08 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsThis project is focused on building up an environment to let anyone write Python apps for the PlayBook and BB10 devices. As of PlayBook OS 2.0, a full Python 3.2 interpreter is included in the system, and is currently accessible to developers. We're building a community framework on top of this runtime to allow the development of complete, "native" PlayBook and BB10 applications using Python!
