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!

systemd Biggest Myths  View Printable Version 
Saturday, January 26 2013 @ 06:32 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsSince we first proposed systemd for inclusion in the distributions it has been frequently discussed in many forums, mailing lists and conferences. In these discussions one can often hear certain myths about systemd, that are repeated over and over again, but certainly don't gain any truth by constant repetition. Let's take the time to debunk a few of them: http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/the-biggest-myths.html

Open source Linux driver supports 3D acceleration with all GeForce GPUs  View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 03 2013 @ 09:09 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsThe Nouveau driver in the current Linux 3.8 development branch has recently acquired everything that's necessary to support the 3D acceleration features of any GeForce graphics hardware. Together with a current version of libdrm and the Nouveau 3D driver in Mesa 3D 9.0, this allows Linux applications to use 3D acceleration even with the most recent GeForce graphics cards.

Understanding and using htop to monitor system resources  View Printable Version 
Saturday, December 22 2012 @ 09:53 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsEvery so often there will be something that slows a system down. There are a few tools that can help to identify which process is the cause of this slow down. One such tool is htop. Htop is an interactive and real time process monitoring application for Linux which will show you your usage per cpu/core, as well as a meaningful text graph of your memory and swap usage.

KDE vs. Gnome system management  View Printable Version 
Monday, December 17 2012 @ 06:18 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsA few weeks back, we talked about KDE and Gnome in daily life, and how they fared from the applications perspective, when you pit programs developed for one environment against those created for the other. We learned a valuable lesson that technology and practicality do not necessarily go hand in hand, nor that you can easily draw a clear line between the two. Finally, we discovered the joy of freedom, in that you can mix software, regardless of whichever desktop you choose, and get the best of all worlds. Now, the big question is, does the same set of conclusions apply when you try to administer your box? Well, to answer that, we will check how easy and intuitive it is to manage Linux when you choose KDE or Gnome as your platform.

Ubuntu Spyware: What to Do?  View Printable Version 
Friday, December 07 2012 @ 10:31 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsOne of the major advantages of free software is that the community protects users from malicious software. Now Ubuntu GNU/Linux has become a counterexample. What should we do?

Proprietary software is associated with malicious treatment of the user: surveillance code, digital handcuffs (DRM or Digital Restrictions Management) to restrict users, and back doors that can do nasty things under remote control. Programs that do any of these things are malware and should be treated as such.
