[Network Functions Virtualisation=NFV]

  • Linux's NFV crew: Operators keen to ditch clunky networks, be cool like Facebook

    Network operators have a jealous eye on the likes of Facebook and Google and want to ditch their clunky networks to compete for "cooler" consumer services, the head of the open-source network function virtualisation (NFV) project has said.

    Heather Kirksey is director of the collaborative Linux foundation's OPNFV project – the open source software platform intended to promote the uptake of new products and services using Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV).

  • Nokia, Intel collaborate on open source hardware

7 open source terminal games for Linux

LXer - Thu, 2016-06-23 14:30
Do fancy graphics really make a game better? Can a text-based game for Linux still keep you entertained?Don't get me wrong, I do occasionally enjoy playing a AAA game release from a major studio. But as I've gotten older, I've found that I really value gameplay (and nostalgia too, admittedly) far more than how photorealistic my gaming experience is.read more

Microsoft Liars

  • Microsoft Edge is a system hog and cannot be called 'power efficient'

    IT WAS ONE HELL of a Monday morning. The rain was hammering down with no end in sight, and the usual 'wrong type of rain' and 'leaves on the line' meant that trains from outlying areas into central London were all pretty much stationary.

    When I finally got to the office, I dashed to my desk, powered up my system and launched Microsoft Edge - the window to my Office 365-using world.

    I was met with a big, blank white window that wouldn't shift, no matter how often I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

    It was the final straw after a year of repeated crashes, hangs, random tab locks followed by forced refreshes, and general slow motion performance that's made anguished cries and keyboard thumps a normal occurrence for those around me.

    So after using Edge religiously since Windows 10's launch as an attempt to ‘embed' with the tech I write about, I decided this morning to stop using it entirely.

  • Opera repudiates Microsoft Edge battery-saving claims

    The browser-maker Opera has negated Microsoft’s much-publicised claim that its Windows 10-exclusive Edge browser provides significantly less battery drain than competitors Chrome and Opera – and its own tests put Edge firmly in second place for battery efficiency.

    In a post at the Opera blog today, Błażej Kaźmierczak reveals the result of the company’s own tests, which put Google Chrome in third place at two hours and fifty-four minutes, Edge in second at three hours twelve minutes, and Opera ahead of that by obtaining three hours and fifty-five minutes of battery life under identical tests.

Fedora: The Latest

  • Upgrade to Fedora 24

    I just updated to Fedora 24 today, just a day after it’s release. Two dnf commands and 30 minutes later, my system is now upgraded to Fedora 24.

  • Example of newer document writing for Fedora-docs
  • Rejection report 2: Korora KDE and GeckoLinux

    This is as bollocky as bollocks go. Korora 23 Gnome actually booted FINE on my G50 machine just the other day. No problem, no sweat. Well, it wouldn't boot from USB, but DVD was fine. Not so with the KDE version. Consistency is such a troubled word. I tried a couple of coasters, even tried a different DVD tray, and then booted the Gnome edition to make sure there's nothing wrong with the hardware. And there isn't.

    I can't describe how frustrated I am. It's the same bloody distro with just a few small changes in the visual layout. But then, Fedora boots fine, after a firmware update. Korora Gnome boots fine, but only from DVD. Korora KDE boots not. I am embarrassed to tell people I'm a Linux user. How can this be? We're in 2016. This isn't 1999 anymore. We're not fighting code demons anymore. Seriously, I'm considering starting a petition that says there should be prison time for badly executed and poorly QA-ed distros. The problem is no one cares about petitions.

  • Caching makes me cranky

    Among issues with Ion is its incorrect use of the DMA APIs. I've briefly mentioned this before. My educated opinion is that it's a complete mess and that time travel would be a great solution to fix this this problem.

  • Tracker Search Engine to Adapt to New GKqueue Monitor Mapping for GNOME 3.22

    We reported the other day that the GNOME developers released the third snapshot towards the upcoming GNOME 3.22 desktop environment, meaning that many of the core components and apps were improved.

    Tracker, the open-source semantic data store software, which is responsible for indexing different sources needed for the search engine integration of the GNOME desktop environment, implemented via GNOME Shell and other apps from the GNOME Stack, has been updated to version 1.9.0.

  • Behind the scenes with the developers

    I had the privilege of sitting in on the GTK+ hackfest in Toronto last week, getting re-energized for my day job by hanging out with developers from Canonical, Collabora, Endless and Red Hat. Toronto is a fabulous city for a hackfest, and Red Hat provided a great workspace.

  • GTK+ hackfest 2016

    A dozen GNOME hackers invaded the Red Hat office in Toronto last week, to spend four days planning the next year of work on our favourite toolkit, GTK+; and to think about how Flatpak applications can best integrate with the rest of the desktop.

  • Bad news: I’m not attending GUADEC
  • Calendar Updates

    The week-view already had good amount of code written for it. So the basic files were already existing.

  • Spreadsheet Function Semantics

    Excel being Excel there are, of course, special cases. “=” does not mean to look for empty strings. Instead it means to look for blank cells. And strings that can be parsed as numbers, dates, booleans, or whatever are equivalent to searching for such values. These are all just examples of run-of-the-mill Excel weirdness.

    The thing that really makes me suspect that Excel designers were under the influence of potent psycho-active substances is that, for no good reason, pattern matching criteria like “foo*bar” mean something different for the two flavours of functions. For the “D” functions it means /^foo.*bar/ in grep terms, whereas for the “if” functions it means /^foo.*bar$/. Was that really necessary?
