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.

General NewsEver heard of WebKit2 and wondering what it means from a Qt perspective? Hereís an attempt to explain QtWebKit and QtWebKit2 in simple terms. I make no attempt to be completely technically correct, itís meant to be able to explain terminology to the WebKit uninitiated.

systemd for Administrators, Part IX - On /etc/sysconfig and /etc/default  View Printable Version 
Monday, July 18 2011 @ 07:27 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsSo, here's a bit of an opinion piece on the /etc/sysconfig/ and /etc/default directories that exist on the various distributions in one form or another, and why I believe their use should be faded out. Like everything I say on this blog what follows is just my personal opinion, and not the gospel and has nothing to do with the position of the Fedora project or my employer. The topic of /etc/sysconfig has been coming up in discussions over and over again. I hope with this blog story I can explain a bit what we as systemd upstream think about these files.

PHP roadmap to deprecate MySQL extention  View Printable Version 
Saturday, July 16 2011 @ 10:13 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsGreetings PHP geeks,

Don't panic! This is not a proposal to add errors or remove this popular extension. Not yet anyway, because it's too popular to do that now.

The documentation team is discussing the database security situation, and educating users to move away from the commonly used ext/mysql extension is part of this.

This proposal only deals with education, and requests permission to officially convince people to stop using this old extension.

Tuesday, June 21 2011 @ 06:24 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

One Year Later: Adobe Abandons 64-bit Linux Again  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, June 07 2011 @ 02:42 pm 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 pm 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.

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.
