Mozilla has been a pioneer and advocate for the Web for nearly 15 years. We are dedicated to promoting open standards and creating new Web experiences that allow innovation and creativity to flourish. We created choice and competition in the desktop browser market when we launched Firefox and we are becoming the same catalyst for change in mobile with Firefox OS, enabling developers, operators and consumers to blaze their own path.
mod_fastcgi is needed for Apache prior to 2.4 to work with PHP-FPM. There is an apache2-mod_fastcgi package for OpenSUSE, but unfortunately it is buggy: it does not allow you to use the FastCgiExternalServer directive inside a vhost, although the official mod_fastcgi documentation says that this is allowed. This guide explains how to build a new mod_fastcgi from the sources for Apache2 on an OpenSUSE 12.2 system to fix this problem.
A year ago, I was about ready to write off Ubuntu as a Linux distribution for end-users — and I did for a while, when I switched to Linux Mint. (I’ve since learned to love Ubuntu again.) Today, though, Canonical appears committed to pursuing the consumer market with renewed vigor, targeting not just desktops but also tablets, smartphones and TVs as part of what some representatives are framing as a the “Ubuntu convergence story.” Will it succeed?
No matter what technology exists, the wrong people seem to be in charge of turning the taps, argues Simon
The not-for-profit organisation behind the Firefox web browser has announced handsets based on its operating system for mobile phones. In a press conference ahead of Mobile World Congress, Mozilla said that 18 operators including Deutsche Telekom and Telefonica, were signed up. The mobiles will go head to head with established software from Apple and Google's Android division. Mozilla described the Firefox OS as an "open alternative". Firefox phones are likely to be sold first in the developing world and Eastern Europe and will be at the cheaper end of the smartphone market, according to Jay Sullivan, vice president of products at Mozilla.
Sharing application code between Microsoft(R) Windows(R) – especially those written in C# for Windows Mobile(R) and Windows Phone(R) – and Android is now possible with ITTIA DB SQL's Mono framework.
Today marks the first tagged release of TinyCompress, a user-space library that takes advantage of ALSA Compressed APIs that were recently introduced in the mainline Linux kernel. This library allows for feeding compressed data like MP3 files directly to ALSA compressed audio devices. This allows for offloading more of the audio playback process to supported audio hardware...

If you haven’t heard of it, all you need to know is that tens of millions of end user programmers adopted it. HyperCard was the easiest and most popular end user programming environment ever created.LiveCode is like a next generation version of HyperCard. It is used to create simple one-off apps and utilities to solve day-to-day problems. As a production-quality, natural language hypermedia environment, LiveCode runs on all major operating systems (Linux, Mac, and Windows) and can generate code for all major desktop platforms, as well as all major mobile platforms (Android, iOS). They even got it up and running on the Raspberry Pi recently.

For me, Fedora 18 Spherical Cow was a big disappointment, mostly because Fedora 17 was a big positive surprise. It's like that woman who keeps smiling at you through the dinner and flirts with you, and then when you take her into your motel room, she suddenly starts crying. I mean what's up with that.Anyhow, I know upfront that MATE will not change anything in terms of how friendly and simple Fedora 18 is. Anaconda stays Anaconda and whatnot. KDE is also a fairly sweet desktop environment, so the fact it did not quite work for me with Spherical Cows does not mean that MATE will suddenly warm my heart. But, if you can ignore the initial woes, and I surely can, then let's see what happens when you plaster the Gnome 2 reborn desktop on the latest Fedora release. Fedora + MATE, take one.
For the past few years the X.Org Server has managed to get back on track for being released bi-annually and without too many delays. However, the server has also fallen into a habit where it's being released without all of the "blocker bugs" being cleared...
Last week when benchmarking the new F2FS file-system from Samsung that was introduced in the Linux 3.8 kernel its performance was compared to Btrfs, EXT3, EXT4, XFS, JFS, and ReiserFS. For those hoping to see file-system performance results of NILFS2, those results are available today.
Mint 201303 RC (Debian Cinnamon) is available. Linux Mint is an Ubuntu-based distribution whose goal is to provide a more complete out-of-the-box experience by including browser plugins, media codecs, support for DVD playback, Java and other components. It also adds a custom desktop and menus, several unique configuration tools, and a web-based package installation interface. Linux Mint is compatible with Ubuntu software repositories.
