We're aiming for steady, organic growth both of ourselves and the wider LibreOffice ecosystem," Meeks said. "Collabora Productivity is here for the long term, and we have plenty of runway to build a sustainable business that delights customers."
Among the big new items included in the Linux 3.11 kernel is the initial support for the Lustre filesystem. Lustre is a widely deployed high-performance computing (HPC) filesystem used by many of the world's top supercomputers. It got its start with Cluster File Systems, which was acquired by Sun Microsystems in 2007. Sun became part of Oracle in 2010, and Lustre languished somewhat. In February of 2013, Xyratex acquired the name "Lustre" and its associated intellectual property assets from Oracle.
The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is not exempt from the "sequestration" budget cuts being imposed on government agencies. For now, one casualty of the cuts will be that agency's plan to open an office in Silicon Valley in the near future, according to a Sunday report by The Associated Press. The Silicon Valley office was an idea that has been suggested for years, and it looked like it was finally coming to fruition.
Today I want to present you Emmabuntüs a Linux distribution derived from Ubuntu and designed to facilitate the repacking of computers donated to Emmaüs Communities. The name itself is a combination of two words: Ubuntu and Emmaüs. Emmabuntüs 2 has been released on July 21 2013 and it’s based on Xubuntu 12.04 LTS, this is because the team want a Long Term support base distribution, and with this version you can be sure to have support for 5 years.
SolidRun refreshed its line of tiny 2 x 2 x 2-inch mini-PCs with four new community-backed models based on 1.2GHz multi-core Freescale i.MX6 SoCs. The CuBox-i devices run Android 4.2.2 and Linux, offer HDMI, S/PDIF, IR, eSATA, GbE, USB, WiFi, and Bluetooth interfaces (depending on model), and are currently available for pre-order starting at $45.
Today in Open Source: Does Elementary OS emulate OS X too much? Plus: Linux 3.11 released, and Windows 10 may help Linux!
The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is one of the most important and influential players in the modern open-source software development community. The ASF is perhaps still best known for its eponymous Web server, the Apache HTTP Server project, commonly referred to as "Apache." - See more at: http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/slideshows/apache-software-foundation-10-projects-that-are-making-a-difference.html/#sthash.gFz2zH8t.dpuf
Getting commercial support for Kubuntu has been an effort over a year in the making and one that has had its fair share of challenges. "At first we had to fight hard to get Canonical to allow us to use the trademark," Riddell said. "They've scaled back a few of their open-source projects recently, and I think they were surprised to find that in Kubuntu there is an enthusiastic user and developer community who want it to continue."
Windows is dead. Let’s all salute it—pour out a glass for it, burn a CD for it, reboot your PC one last time. Windows had a good run. For a time, it powered the world. But that era is over. It was killed by the unlikeliest of collaborations—Microsoft’s ancient enemies working over decades, in concert: Steve Jobs, Linus Torvalds, and most of all, two guys named Larry and Sergey.
After written thousands of Linux articles, one of the complaints that I always heard about Linux is that you have to use the command line to install applications. Most people don’t like Windows, but they were afraid to move to Linux because of the command line. In Windows, they can install an application by double clicking the exe file, but in Linux, they have to use the command line. So is it true that the command line is the only way to install applications in Linux?
The brand new openQRM 5.1 is packed with innovative features, like the new Hybrid Cloud Plugin, and an intuitive new interface design.
We often have our heads down looking at the projects we regularly work on (Apache CloudStack and Xen Project) and don't always pay attention to the other cool things going on in the open source world. So once and a while it's good to poke your head up olut of the clouds and take a look at some of the awesome projects being developed in the open source community. These projects are very promising and especially usefully for cloud comptuing.
Now that The Linux Foundation is a member of the UEFI.org group, I’ve been working on the procedures for how to boot a self-signed Linux kernel on a platform so that you do not have to rely on any external signing authority. After digging through the documentation out there, it turns out to be relatively simple in the end, so here’s a recipe for how I did this, and how you can duplicate it yourself on your own machine.
Our favorite operating system is now 22 years old, and that means we're that much closer to a freedom-enabled future. "The sky is the limit!" blogger Mike Stone suggested. "Well, I guess Linux already is used on the International Space Station, so I guess the sky isn't the limit. With desktop computers fading in relevance, expect the last barriers to Linux to drop."
Social Fixer, a plugin that works with most browsers, allows users to change how their Facebook newsfeed and other pages are displayed and how they operate. Although very popular, the extension has always been a thorn in Facebook’s side. It’s not surprising that Zuckerberg and his minions would now find even less to like about the plugin, since Wall Street has been prodding them to get serious about monetizing the massive amount of traffic that flows through the social network.
The analysis also showed that HoT does not work as advertised, at least not yet. But the interesting part of the result of the analysis that peeked my interest concerns how HoT fared on Ubuntu 12.04 and Fedora 19, two distributions it was tested on.

Dot Categories: KDE Advocacy, Discussions, and RumorsThe KDE community is deeply concerned by the wrong notion contained in a recent complaint to the European Commission. The Fairsearch initiative claims that "distribution of Android at below-cost" could constitute anti-competitive behaviour or predatory pricing. Mirko Böhm produced a response (PDF) for the KDE Community.
