Skype 4.0 for Linux now available  View Printable Version 
Thursday, June 14 2012 @ 11:30 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsAnyone who uses Skype on Linux will be happy to hear that a new version has been made available today, bringing with it a host of essential updates and new features.

Skype 4.0, codenamed “Four Rooms for Improvement,” is long overdue, and Marco Cimmino makes a point of thanking Linux users for their patience on the Skype blog. The wait seems to have been worth it, though.

Sunday, June 10 2012 @ 10:30 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsAdobe has announced the release of an update for Flash Player on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android 3.x and 4.x, and within its own AIR runtime. The update addresses several critical vulnerabilities which involve memory corruption, stack overflows, integer overflows, security being bypassed, null dereferencing and binary planting (DLL hijacking). All, except the security bypass, could lead to code execution.

A Tale of Two Suites: Do We Still Need OpenOffice.org?  View Printable Version 
Monday, May 21 2012 @ 07:57 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General News"I wouldn't count OO out just yet simply because of ONE reason... the license," said Slashdot blogger hairyfeet. "It's common knowledge that NOBODY in business will go near GPL after the V3 debacle. Apache on the other hand is MUCH more business-friendly, and the Apache server is used all across the business landscape, so I can see businesses getting behind OO for that reason alone."

Reality Check on Ubuntu's Enterprise Claims  View Printable Version 
Saturday, March 17 2012 @ 04:43 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsUbuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth has found some encouraging statistics on Ubuntu adoption for public-facing Web sites powered by Ubuntu. Unfortunately, Shuttleworth has taken a single data point and tried to suggest that it's an indicator that companies are choosing Ubuntu over Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) for "enterprise computing." In reality, the stats from W3Techs about Web site usage are not a particularly useful tool for divining what companies are using for "large-scale enterprise workloads."

Canonical's Ticking Time Clock  View Printable Version 
Thursday, March 01 2012 @ 01:34 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsGiven Canonical's history of abandoned users and product announcements that come up short in execution, Shuttleworth's most recent goal of 200 million users by 2015 doesn't compute. There's simply no path from "declining OS vendor" to "competing on an equal footing with Microsoft, Apple and Google." It's the sort of rhetoric a CEO would say to rally the troops, but it's become obvious that it's already too late.

Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsAdobe has announced that in future, the Flash Player for Linux will only be available through Google as part of the Google Chrome browser and not as a standalone download.

Unix as IDE: Introduction  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, February 15 2012 @ 06:57 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsNewbies and experienced professional programmers alike appreciate the concept of the IDE, or integrated development environment. Having the primary tools necessary for organising, writing, maintaining, testing, and debugging code in an integrated application with common interfaces for all the different tools is certainly a very valuable asset. Additionally, an environment expressly designed for programming in various languages affords advantages such as autocompletion, and syntax checking and highlighting.

XFS: the filesystem of the future?  View Printable Version 
Sunday, January 29 2012 @ 05:52 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsLinux has a lot of filesystems, but two of them (ext4 and btrfs) tend to get most of the attention. In his 2012 linux.conf.au talk, XFS developer Dave Chinner served notice that he thinks more users should be considering XFS. His talk covered work that has been done to resolve the biggest scalability problems in XFS and where he thinks things will go in the future. If he has his way, we will see a lot more XFS around in the coming years.
