Open-Source Web-Sites, Memories Of The Past  View Printable Version 
Monday, April 18 2011 @ 10:38 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceThe forum discussion surrounding TransGaming's GameTree Linux and Cedega Technology continues, with some Linux gamers regretting that they ever even supported TransGaming. One user also brings up the past from when -- back in 2000~2001 -- TransGaming had pledged to open up their code-base once they reached 20,000 subscribers. They believed in an open-source philosophy at that time, but they never ended up opening up their code once hitting that milestone. Even though Cedega as we know it is now dead, this former fork of the X11-licensed Wine is still closed.

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

Introducing /run  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, March 30 2011 @ 04:58 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

LinuxLennart Poettering has sent out a note warning Fedora users that they will see a new top-level /run directory soon. "In the past weeks key people from the Debian, Suse, Ubuntu and Fedora camps (and others, too) discussed the whole issue forth and back, to find a solution to stop the misuse of /dev before it becomes even more widespread. Various solutions have been suggested, but in the end it all boiled down to the fact that /var/run does not belong beneath /var and what we really want is a top-level directory /run, and that that is the only really clean solution.
