One Year Later: Adobe Abandons 64-bit Linux Again  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, June 07 2011 @ 02:42 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsJust under a year ago I wrote about how Adobe had abandoned 64-bit Linux, at least temporarily. Linux users who chose to run a 64-bit OS were left with a range of unsatisfactory choices: use an outdated beta with known security vulnerabilities; run an FOSS alternative, most likely gnash, despite limits in functionality and compatibility; or run a 32-bit browser in a 64-bit operating system.

10 Commercial Apps for Linux That I Never Knew Existed  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, May 25 2011 @ 11:17 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsOne thing that keeps Linux in the back foot is the lack of good quality applications that can compete with the best out there. The advent of paid softwares section in Ubuntu Software Center is a start, things like that can kick start application development for Linux in a big way. But things were not as bad I thought it would be. On further browsing, I found out that there are indeed a good number of paid applications for Linux, some of them were a total surprise for me. Here are some of those paid applications for Linux which I found interesting.

systemd Documentation  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, May 24 2011 @ 10:05 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFedora 15 is out. Get it while it is hot! It is probably the biggest distribution release of a all time with being first in shipping both GNOME 3 and systemd.

Since this is the first distribution release based on systemd, it might be interesting to read up on what it is all about. Here's a little compilation of the available documentation for systemd.

How to painlessly switch from Ubuntu to Fedora  View Printable Version 
Monday, May 23 2011 @ 01:01 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsUbuntu and Fedora are arguably the most popular Linux distros out there today. They both make a huge impact on the Linux community release after release, but are somewhat opposite philosphies at times. Fedora, the RedHat-sponsored community project is adamant of RPM packages, while Ubuntu is based on Debian and therefore uses DEB packages. Fedora maintains that RedHat corporate environment vibe to it, more like a specialised distro, the perfect choice for developers. Ubuntu, on the other hand, based its strategy around creating "Linux for human beings", a friendly desktop environment that is accessible to all kinds of users.

As of Today, It's Mark Webbink's Groklaw 2.0 - Updated  View Printable Version 
Monday, May 16 2011 @ 10:55 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsI announced in April that as of today, I wouldn't be writing any more articles for Groklaw. I intended to finish the Comes v. Microsoft exhibits as text and perfect some of our other collections and then I would retire from Groklaw, knowing as I did that the research we have done together will remain useful no matter what happens in the future.

A Python programmer’s first impression of CoffeeScript  View Printable Version 
Friday, May 13 2011 @ 12:17 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsCoffeeScript is a simple, clean, fast language which compiles to JavaScript, either at build time, with a caching framework plugin on the server, or at runtime in the browser.

The syntax looks like a cross between Python and Haskell and, generally speaking, is used similarly enough to Python that you’ll have little trouble picking it up and using it comfortably.

ASCII Pronunciation Rules for Programmers  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 16 2011 @ 04:28 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsAs programmers, we deal with a lot of unusual keyboard characters that typical users rarely need to type, much less think about.

Even the characters that are fairly regularly used in everyday writing -- such as the humble dash, parens, period, and question mark -- have radically different meaning in programming languages.

GNOME 3 – Built for people who would never use Linux in the first place  View Printable Version 
Friday, April 08 2011 @ 09:44 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsI often get the feeling that developers of the major Linux desktop environments suffer from commercial envy. It seems they’re always trying to make Linux more “user friendly” for the .01% of Windows or Mac users that might halfway consider making the switch, while ever increasingly ignoring the 99% of full time Linux desktop users who just want easy customization and solid performance. Many argue that the major environments (KDE, GNOME) aren’t for Linux power users, who should use one of the more bare bones environments available.
