Linux/Open Source Daily News Thread

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 

I scour several news sites each day, and put a list together for my friends and family, that the IT world/Linux would be interested in Reading, figured I might bring part of that list, that mainly pertains to our linux/open source members. If you Like to see something added to the news for the day, that I have missed, or feel should be shared, PM me, and I will add it to this thread for the Daily News.

 

I will Keep this thread with the latest in the week of news, after that, they will be moved to an "archive" thread.

Though Windows 8 and Linux distributions differ greatly from each other in design, ideology and -- last but not least -- their primary audience, they're all built on the same basic principles of OS design so there's bound to be some overlap. And while Microsoft has long been accused of stealing from the open source community, according to some Linux fans, it's getting to the point where Microsoft simply appropriates good Linux features.

I know this is the "linux/OSS newsthread" and all, but this is a very interesting read. I don't see it as MS smooching off of OpenSource like some would, I would say it shows the true power of the OpenSource community, that even a Proprietary company Like MS can not simple ignore it and its advantages as a whole, and that they will actually try to compete with it. with that said, I would like to ask if you feel the need to respond to this article at any point, that you keep the negative remarks about either to yourself.

In a recent interview with Linux User & Developer, Raspberry Pi developer Eben Upton got a chance to talk about the performance of the upcoming SoC that is due out later this month.

 

I myself like to tinker around stuff like this, I'm eager to get one of these :).

 

Quote:
 The Live CD has the Wayland display server on it, and various toolkits (QT, GTK, Clutter etc.) . It does start to xorg, and there it has an icon for launching Wayland nested in X. If you want to start it native, switch to tty1 by hitting ctrl-alt-f1, and typing sudo westoncaller. to go back to X switch to TTY 7 or 8, by hitting ctrl-alt-f7, or ctrl-alt-f8.

 

Even tho I didn't know who this person was that they were talking about in the article, I regrettable googled and watched her video...braincells dying atm. I might not like the person this "OS" is suppose to be fanmade of (and I thought the height of nerdom was when for my first wedding anniversary I purchased one of those packages to psuedo name a star after some one for my wife, too bad I didn't think of making her an OS :), oh wait some one already has, its called satanic Ubuntu edition!). Okay back on topic, even tho I didn't know who this person was, I still like the concept of giving wayland a quick whirl without risk to my install or actually taking the time myself to create a livecd like this, so kudos for the creator on features, -1 on subject matter :).

 

Quote:
Cybercrooks have embraced the open-source model in the development of banking Trojans following the release of source code for the infamous ZeuS cybercrime toolkit last year.

 

To me the title of this article is seriously misleading. I would like to point out, that its the concept of the bazaar that these dev's are using, not actualy open source source code to accomplish their evil doings or even targetting open sourced OS's/Programs.

If you’d like to use FreeBSD as a desktop system, you’ll have to invest a lot of time in setting up the operating system and installing all the right packages. Obviously, this is a serious barrier for a lot of Linux users who are interested in trying out FreeBSD. PC-BSD fills in this gap by offering a completely usable and user-friendly FreeBSD desktop install with all kinds of stuff pre-configured. In a way, PC-BSD is to FreeBSD what Ubuntu is to Debian.

 

I found Freebsd to be easier to install and use, than PC-BSD...hmm.

 

Enjoy the news (and I don't think "comments" from me after each news topic is gonna be "standard" from now on, just trying a little different format :))

    This is not 100% confirmed, but the news that Fedora is dropping Compiz from release 17 can only mean one thing — Compiz is dead. Gentoo, openSUSE, GNOME, and a list of others had already dropped Compiz, leaving only one distribution holding onto the compositing software — Ubuntu. That’s right, the little desktop that could still uses Compiz as its compositor. There are also plenty of outstanding bug reports whose issues, it seems, will forever be unresolved. This all clangs out a death knell for the compositor that really brought something to the Linux desktop that no other had.

    "You know about the two rules right for interviewing Richard?" a volunteer asks before leading us to meet Richard Stallman, the man who fights for free software day in and out. One, don't use the term Open Source to mean free software.

    Two, don't say Linux but say GNU/Linux. Dr Stallman, who started the Free Software Foundation in 1985 to promote freedom to create, share and modify software, is extremely sensitive to whether the goals of his initiative are rightly communicated.

    Quote:
    The Open Source Initiative (OSI) currently lists 68 approved open source licenses. Sounds like more than enough to suit any needs? Think again. Jilayne Lovejoy, corporate counsel at OpenLogic, says, “We have more than 1,000 licenses cataloged in OLEX,” and “we are constantly adding new licenses or variations on existing licenses that we find in the course of performing audit and scanning services.” Are all these licenses necessary? And why are there so many in the first place?

    The Document Foundation (TDF) announced plans last year to create mobile and cloud versions of LibreOffice. A preliminary iOS porting effort that was undertaken earlier in 2011 demonstrated the viability of the project and showed that the open source office suite could have a future beyond the desktop.

Linux 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.

 

Quote:
Finally something really interesting to talk about. If you've used UNIX or any of its derivatives, you've probably wondered why there's /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin in the file system. You may even have a rationalisation for the existence of each and every one of these directories. The thing is, though - all these rationalisations were thought up after these directories were created. As it turns out, the real reasoning is pretty damn straightforward.

It’s been a few weeks since the last drop of unity, and now the unity team has readied the new version of unity 5.2. Let’s walk through how to preview the new features unity 5.2 is bringing, and help test those features using checkbox! Checkbox allows you to get your feedback straight into the hands of the unity developers and report any problems your system may have with the new version of unity. First let’s talk a little bit about what’s new. Note that these features only exist for right now in Unity 3D.

Over the last few years, we’ve seen radical changes to the Linux desktop. Some, despite initial opposition, such as the KDE 4.x re-start, took a while to gain favor, but eventually became popular. Others, such as GNOME 3.x have alienated many users and first Ubuntu’s Unity and now it’s Head-Up Display (HUD) have not been greeted with overwhelming approval even by hard-core Ubuntu Linux users. So, Linux Mint’s developers have decided to go back to the past with a GNOME 2.x style desktop: Cinnamon. So, how well have they done? I give them an “A” for effort, but only a “B” for execution.

The meeting took place a week before Bill Gates retired from Microsoft, and the topic was open source software.

It was the summer of 2008, and for years, the open source community had viewed Microsoft as public enemy number one. Seven years earlier, CEO Steve Ballmer had referred to Linux as a “malignant cancer,” and as recently as the previous summer, Microsoft general counsel Brad Smith and licensing chief Horacio Gutierrez had told Fortune Magazine that Linux violated 235 of its patents, implying that it would soon demand royalties from any big business using the open source OS.

In 1965, Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, put forth an axiom that became known as Moore's Law. Moore stated that every year the power of a microprocessor would double. Since 1959, thus far, that axiom has pretty much held true.

In 2012, Richard Stallman, champion of free software, has apparently come up with his own axiom to describe the nature of business and technology, not-quite-so-humbly known as Stallman's Law:

    "While corporations dominate society and write the laws, each advance in technology is an opening for them to further restrict its users."

The desktop remains central to our everyday work and play, despite all the excitement around tablets, TV’s and phones. So it’s exciting for us to innovate in the desktop too, especially when we find ways to enhance the experience of both heavy “power” users and casual users at the same time. The desktop will be with us for a long time, and for those of us who spend hours every day using a wide diversity of applications, here is some very good news: 12.04 LTS will include the first step in a major new approach to application interfaces.

Josselin Mouette is one the leaders of the pkg-gnome team, he takes sound technical decisions and doesn’t fear writing code to work-around upstream issues. He deserves kudos for the work he has put into packaging GNOME over the years. He can also be very sarcastic (sometimes he even enjoys participating to flamewars on debian lists), and there are quite a few topics where we have long agreed to disagree. But this kind of diversity is also what makes Debian a so interesting place…

The Fedora Project is currently mounting a concerted effort to merge Linux filesystem directories into a more organized structure, an effort known as /usr merge.

This is not really new news: I covered this back in November. But a new posting on FreeDesktop.org from systemd developer Lennart Poettering is seeking to dispel many of the arguments against such a merge, while touting the merger's advantages.

Is this a fine area for discussion on the articles or will there be something set aside? Anyway, thanks for this Transhour.

It'll be interesting when Btrfs hits mainstream. Seems there still are performance issues to deal with the last I read.
As for the HUD...it's interesting.

I was thinking, if some one wants to disucss any of these, they could start a independent thread, as I didn't want to clutter up the linux section every day with individual news articles, hint as to why I decided to go this route.

 

EDIT: maybe if this gets "popular" enough, I could talk the upper ups into spinning it off into its own "sub section" like ocnix is.

The Huddler platform, unfortunately doesn't have a "sticky" system like old OCN had, that blue box at the top of the forum call "Sticky" thread, is what we have to work with.
