So I went looking for something more to my liking. Something that’s Markdown-enabled. That has meant installing and uninstalling Markdown-enabled editors all day. With this post, I share with you what I’ve found and which ones passed the it-fits-the-way-I-work test.
Open-source mailing lists and IRC conversations are as prone to flame wars as anywhere on the Internet, but now systemd co-creator Lennart Poettering is calling out Linus Torvalds in a more public forum for helping to create attacks on him.
In Brussels, they really get "open." In Washington, D.C., well, not so much. It would be easy, and even no surprise, to spend a year in Washington, D.C. and never hear the word "open" used during a high level policy discussion. It's quite the opposite in Europe, where all things open (standards, source code, data and research) have been the subject of lively discussion and incorporation into core policy goals and directives. Nor has that happened by coincidence.
The Debian Installer team is pleased to announce the second beta release of the installer for Debian 8 Jessie. Important changes in this release of the installer: Gnome is now the default desktop environment on Linux again. A list of desktop environments is displayed in tasksel, making it easy to install another desktop environment (or several of them). Unfortunately that is currently a bit underdocumented. Preliminary support for the arm64 and ppc64el architectures has been added.

Kernel configuration has become more and more complex through the years with the proliferation of new drivers, new hardware and specific behaviors that might be needed for particular uses. It has reached about 3,000 configoptions, and that number will only increase.
Let's reminisce. What was the first open source tool you ever used? Was it for work or fun? Maybe you were trying to start or finish a project and reached for a free and accessible tool? Or maybe you just have a preference for open source software? Tell us about it. We're collecting stories.
An update for Linux Mint 17.1 is in the works and the developers are making some big improvements to the system, like a new MDM Setup tool that lets users pick the login window.
Leslie Hawthorn is a well known figure in open source and chances are you've heard or attended one of her talks.

One of the first safety measures that any sysadmin may want to implement in their production servers is a mechanism to detect file tampering - not only the content of files, but also their attributes. AIDE (short for "Advanced Intrusion Detection Environment") is an open source host-based intrusion detection system.

Installing and using Tundeep for network tunnelling and testing on DebianTundeep is a network tunnelling daemon written in C that runs in userspace using libpcap. Tundeep is used as a security testing tool allowing a tester to tunnel through the target network at layer 2. A TAP interface will be brought up on the tester's machine for each level of the network allowing direct interaction with hosts on the network segment through a compromised client device.
Some people have been working on open source projects for so long, and collaborating as a process and method for getting work done, that it's just second nature and kind of odd for them to talk about what it's like.
Unfortunately, some researchers don’t understand the importance of making the code they use to reach their conclusions available. What’s worse, even if they do understand, the administrators at most universities do not, and the publishers of the all important scientific journals have no method in place for reviewing the code used in scientific research. The later is particularly troublesome, because the publishing of peer-reviewed journals is a huge business and not likely to go away any time soon.
The Debian Installer Team has announced that Debian Installer Jessie Beta 2 is out and ready for download. This latest version brings some very interesting changes for Jessie and a ton of improvements.
A subtitle editor is a type of computer software that lets users create and edit subtitles. These subtitles are superimposed over, and synchronized with, video. Subtitles can literally make the difference between being immersed in a movie or only watching the screen, trying to keep up with developments. Good subtitling does not distract but actually enhances viewing pleasure, and even native speakers can find subtitles useful, not only where the individual is hearing-impaired.
Germany might become an example for other cities which are looking to shed their dependency on proprietary solutions, such as Windows. One of those cities might be Hamburg, but the official discussions haven't started just yet. One of the political parties in Germany wants to kickstart the discussions regarding this thorny issue.
