Open Source Bridge is an annual conference focused on building open source community and citizenship through four days of technical talks, hacking sessions, and collaboration opportunities. Prior to this year's event, I caught up with one of the speakers, Lindsey Bieda, who will give a talk called Hardware, Hula Hoops, and Flow.
The conference overall drew nearly 2,000 open-source enthusiasts, setting yet another record for the event! All the openSUSE sessions were well attended, and that gave our team some excellent feedback for future sessions. We were pleasantly suprised to find that “Q&A with openSUSE board members (plus another guy)” was a standing-room-only event, with the audience providing plenty of thoughtful questions for us to answer. “Make the Leap from Dev to Production with openSUSE Leap“, co-presented by Richard Brown and James Mason, provided a thoughtful developer-oriented talk to another full room. Richard also showed some cross-distribution love for openSUSE tooling, co-presenting “openQA – Avoiding Disasters of Biblical Proportions” with Fedora’s Adam Williamson.
Today, June 14, 2016, Softpedia was informed by Logic Supply about the general availability of CL100, the tiny, fanless, and ventless industrial PC that promises to offer more than meets than eye.
The quick booting time and swift usage of the operating system, however, fades away pretty quickly compared to the others. It can be quickly brought back to its previous speed with these simple and quick fixes.
Elementary OS is an Ubuntu variant that features the custom developed Pantheon desktop environment. The latest release that is coming down the pipeline will be Elementary OS 0.4. This week, however, the first beta of the upcoming release, nicknamed “Loki” was made available to the public and we thought we’d dive in to see what all of the fuss was about.
The developers of the Debian-based Parsix GNU/Linux operating system have announced today, June 15, 2016, that new security fixes are available for Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 "Atticus" and Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10 "Erik."
Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 "Atticus" is the stable version of the desktop-oriented operating system, based on Debian GNU/Linux 8 "Jessie" series, which means that it has most likely received all the security fixes that landed as part of the recently released Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 update.
If you were amazed by the GeForce GTX 1080 performance under Linux but its ~$699 USD price-tag is too much to handle, the GeForce GTX 1070 is now shipping for $399~449 USD. NVIDIA sent over a GeForce GTX 1070 and I've been putting it through its paces under Linux with a variety of OpenGL, OpenCL, and Vulkan benchmarks along with CUDA and deep learning benchmarks. Here's the first look at the GeForce GTX 1070 performance under Ubuntu Linux.
Yesterday NVIDIA released the 367.27 long-lived driver release to succeed the earlier 367 betas. That driver arrived too late for my initial round of GeForce GTX 1070 / 1080 Linux testing with that GTX 1070 review published this morning.
Coming out yesterday from the start of GNOME's latest GTK+ hackfest were details on GTK+ 4.0 and future releases whereby they would change how they enforce API stability and how frequently they do major stable releases of the toolkit.
The GNOME Foundation is pleased to announce the Call for Participation in Libre Application Summit — hosted by GNOME (LAS GNOME). The conference will be held from September 19 – 23 in Portland, Oregon, and brings together developers, entrepreneurs, and FOSS enthusiasts for discussion and debate of the future of Linux apps.
Trusting Microsoft's words, he went ahead and tried to upgrade it to Windows 10. Yes, that was a big mistake.
The tiny netbook, of course, was lost in what we can call the computer equivalent to a coma. Apparently, he attempted to revert the process only to discover that the Windows 10 logo simply wanted to stay as the perpetual image on the screen.
So, I took the machine with me and ran the Mageia 5 i586 install DVD. Apparently, Windows 10 butchered the MBR. I had to wipe out everything.
The GParted team is pleased to announce a new stable release of GParted Live.
This release includes GParted 0.26.1, patches for libparted for FAT file system operations, and other improvements.
Adlink’s MVP-6000 is a “value” embedded PC with 6th Gen Intel Core “Skylake” CPUs, three GbE ports, six USB ports, four video ports, and PCI/PCIe expansion.
Commell’s 3.5-inch “LE-37F” SBC supports Intel Braswell processors, and offers a pair each of SATA, GbE, and mini-PCIe connections plus four USB 3.0 ports.
An 11-year-old asks her grandfather how computer games are made and he tells her they’re created by programmers “using complex mathematical code.” The next thing he knows, she’s learning Python on her own, and getting her chums involved too.
In the early 1970s, at Silicon Valley’s Xerox PARC, Alan Kay envisioned computer software as something akin to a biological system, a vast collection of small cells that could communicate via simple messages. Each cell would perform its own discrete task. But in communicating with the rest, it would form a more complex whole. “This is an almost foolproof way of operating,” Kay once told me. Computer programmers could build something large by focusing on something small. That’s a simpler task, and in the end, the thing you build is stronger and more efficient.
antiX 16 is now up to the RC (Release Candidate) state, which means that the development cycle is almost over
