Today, the many in the world focus on making things as environmentally-friendly as possible to reduce the negative impact daily life has on the environment to protect it for future generations. This includes major corporations, such as Facebook.Facebook is at the forefront of creating greener ways to operate their servers that contain everything that makes the website run for its millions of users. With their state-of-the-art open source data centers, they are helping companies around the world match their stride.
I was on holiday, so I was unable to create the Slackware packages for KDE Software Compilation 4.10.3 any sooner than today. This installment of KDE SC was already added to slackware-current earlier this week, but my packages are specifically for users of the stable release, Slackware 14.
Every once in a while, I crawl out from under the rock that is bugzilla and I try and look around at what others are doing in the distro kernel space. Today I was curious how Fedora and Ubuntu compare in how they configure the kernel. I've long thought that for all the focus the kernel gets, it should be the most boring package in an entire distro. It should work, work well, and that is about it. It isn't there to differentiate your distro. It's there to let your distro run. So, will my personal belief stand up, or would I find something in the configs that proves one "distro" is better than another? Let's dive in.
Facebook and friends' Open Compute Project has made servers, motherboards and power supplies more affordable for data centers. Now it tackles perhaps its biggest challenge to date: high-end network switches.
Last week there was a poll to find out the answer to the ultimate question "If you could save a limited number of Linux distributions which distributions would you save?". The results are in. The larger distributions clearly came out on top. Read the full review of the poll here.
Suspending to RAM is allows the system to quickly wake up. But Suspend to Disk allows the system to completely power off, saving more power. That's why I've written a small script for modern Linux systems, which wakes up the system from S3 (memory sleep) and puts it into S5 (hibernation) mode. Also, it prevents you from losing data, because eventually your system's battery will run out. This script helps.
While Steam is currently probably the most downloaded application on Ubuntu, a relaxing puzzle game Splice is storming the Ubuntu App Charts. In April, this game was on the 4th place in the Top 10 of commercial applications in the Ubuntu Software Center.
Broadcom is sampling a system-on-chip (SOC) aimed at control-plane and edge-networking devices. The StrataGX BCM58525 is equipped with a dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, and features a packet-buffer subsystem, gigabit Ethernet PHY, cryptographic and programmable packet-handling accelerators, and a Linux development kit. Broadcom’s StrataGX BCM58525 is said to be 20 percent faster than previous StrataGX [...]
Rackspace (NYSE:RAX), the cloud services provider (CSP) and OpenStack proponent, delivered weaker than expected quarterly earnings results today. The big question: Is the growth of cloud computing slowing down -- or is Rackspace being squeezed by Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Windows Azure and other big-name public clouds?
On the same day as sharing their plans for Ubuntu's own package format and installer, Rick Spencer of Canonical has laid out plans for the Ubuntu Phone to be "usable as our daily phones" by month's end...
This is The Funding Crowd, a (hopefully) weekly column about the Linux games crowdfunding scene, with a particular focus on those small worthy projects that might have gone under the radar.
Surprisingly Ubuntu 13.04 still offers a complete lack of customization options for the Unity desktop, but there is a solution. Install the Unity Tweak Tool to access a variety of helpful settings that will remove all barriers. Now you can get the Unity desktop to look the way you want, and perform the way it should.
