    I’ve spent a good share of my time asking myself what would have to change in order to make Linux on the desktop a viable choice for the mainstream user. I became curious enough to ask you a question: if you could wave your magic wand and change only one thing about Linux or even the Linuxsphere in general, what would it be? Let’s take a look at what some of you had to say.

  • Adding search capabilities within your Pelican-powered site using Tipue Search

    The ability for visitors to quickly find what they are looking for on a website is pretty important. It can mean the difference between them staying on your website or leaving to find what they are looking for elsewhere. With static website generators like Pelican the first options that come to mind are generally pointing a user to the website's archive or using an embedded search box linked to a major search engine with a parameter to display only links from your website. However, those two choices are not always the best course of action. Websites can have a rather large archive page which…

I personally think that Jacob Barkdull, HashOver's developer, definitely full-filled the goal he was striving for with his project. Even as a newly released project, HashOver comes with everything that you would expect a mature comment system to have and it is very easy to implement into your existing website. Features:…

    Last month, ZDNet published an interview with MongoDB CEO Max Schireson which took the position that the document databases, such as MongoDB, are better-suited to today's applications than traditional relational databases; the title of the article implies that the days of relational databases are numbered. But it is not, as Schireson would have us believe, that the relational database community is ignorant of or has not tried the design paradigms which he advocates, but that they have been tried and found, in many cases, to be anti-patterns.

  • Adobe's Open Source Tightrope Walk

    Jack M. Germain
    19 Apr 2014 | 2:35 pm
    Open source software continues to gain momentum -- but what is not growing is an open desire among individual software developers to port their commercial Windows wares to Linux. Open source support is not a mere in or out decision. Some software makers shape their business models to take advantage of open source support for some products but not others. For other software developers, making a commitment to support FOSS often goes well beyond the notion of putting one's money where one's mouth is.

Hydra tries to make it easy to reduce the number of dimensions, or the cost of watching them (via probabilistic data structures), to just the right point where everything runs quickly but can still answer almost any question you think you might…

    Shut up and give Google your data. The Chromebook platform goes from strength to strength. Market researchers say they're selling faster than ever, predicting 11 million sales (in... err... 2019). And it's not just consumers buying them. Some enterprises are choosing to move most of their Windows users to Chrome OS -- motivated by the XP end-of-life and cost savings.

    This is a followup to my previous post, Strong SSL/TLS Cryptography in Apache and Nginx. Perhaps hard to tell given how many users remain, but Windows XP reached its end of life on 8 April 2014. This means no more support, updates, or bug fixes—not even of critical security flaws. Windows XP use has been dwindling, but its end-of-life provides an excellent opportunity to consider removing support for it from your applications and websites.Dropping Windows XP support provides particularly interesting results for SSL/TLS configurations, as most of the compromises one makes in their provided…

    I recently moved my homepage, Robert Love, from HTTP to HTTPS. My goal was to configure the server with strong cryptography while making less compromises for compatibility and against security than many of the "best practice" configurations others provide. I thought I'd share the result. Notably, I recommend a cipher suite ordering that enables Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) with AES-GCM, disables broken ciphers, neutralizes known attacks, and still works on nearly every browser. I provide configuration for both Apache and Nginx. Many feel encryption is the raison d'être of HTTPS, but I argue…

But one of the most popular—and one of my personal favorites—was a recipe for the Mexican pork dish carnitas.

  • UK’s security branch says Ubuntu most secure end-user OS

    Prakash Advani
    20 Apr 2014 | 11:41 pm
    The Communications-Electronics Security Group (CESG), the group within the UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) that assesses operating systems and software for security issues, has found that while no end-user operating system is as secure as they’d like it to be, Ubuntu 12.04 is the best of the lot. In late 2013, the CESG looked at the security of the most popular end-user operating systems for desktops, smartphones, and tablets [PDF Link]. This included: Android 4.2, Android 4.2 on Samsung devices; iOS 6, Blackberry 10.1, Google’s Chrome OS 26, Ubuntu 12.04, Windows…

    Prakash Advani
    24 Mar 2014 | 10:53 pm
    Mozilla Thunderbird is one of the most powerful email clients. However I used to find that it used to keep the active window open while sending emails. This was a bit irritating specially if the email has large attachments. On searching for background send, I found that the feature exists but doesn’t show up in the preference. You need to enable it. After enabling it, it works very well. The only thing you need to be careful is not to send an email and immediately close your email client or shut down your PC. What happens is that email will not go as it take a few minutes (depending on…
  • 11 Percent of Windows XP Users Will Switch to Linux

    Prakash Advani
    19 Mar 2014 | 2:57 am
    If you are still on XP, whats your plans ? 11% of the (admittedly small) 641 companies queried stated they intend to switch to Linux. The low-cost, robust security and growing reputation in enterprise use are likely key factors informing such plans. Perhaps more shockingly is that 37% of those asked intend to stick with Windows XP past the expiry date. Of those, 40% reason that as ‘it works’ there’s little need to change, while 39% claim software they rely on depends on XP.

    Many schools in Romania today are using proprietary software like Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office — most of which are either unlicenced copies or old unsupported versions, for which the schools may face legal issues, according to the Education Ministry of Romania. To tackle this problem, the Ministry recommends the schools to either purchase newer, licenced copies of these software, or switch to open source solutions like GNU/Linux, particularly Ubuntu and Edubuntu.

  • Greed and the Wright Brothers

    19 Apr 2014 | 2:02 am
    The Wright brothers' critical insight was the importance of "lateral stability" - that is, wingtip-to-wingtip stability - to flight. And their great innovation was something they called "wing warping," in which they used a series of pulleys that caused the wingtips on one side of the airplane to go up when the wingtips on the other side were pulled down. That allowed the Wrights' airplane to make banked turns and to correct itself when it flew into a gust of wind. But when the Wrights applied for a patent, they didn't seek one that just covered wing warping; their patent covered any means to…
  • Judge confirms link between Apple and patent troll Rockstar

    Rockstar, the massive patent troll in which Apple is a majority shareholder, sued Google for patent infringement. Of course, Rockstar filed suit in the Eastern District of Texas, the usual venue for patent trolls. Because of Apple's involvement, Google motioned to have the suit take place in California instead, where it stands a much greater chance of winning. Judge Claudia Wilken sides with Google. She states in the ruling: Google and Apple's rivalry in the smartphone industry is well-documented. Apple's founder stated that he viewed Android as a "rip off" of iPhone features and intended to…

At the beginning of the week, I went to Walmart and picked this Chromebook up, having made my decision to purchase it a couple of days before.

It means that more and more people become interested in the beginners-level information about Linux.I have recently published a guest post with a video introduction into Linux world from CBT Nuggets. It became really popular.Today I want to let you know about some other resources that may help Linux beginners.First of all, this is an article by Dedoimedo about installation of Ubuntu next to Windows 7. It claims to be valid for Windows 8 too. You don’t know who Dedoimedo is?
  • Run your own repository with Apt-Mirror

    6 Mar 2014 | 2:34 pm
    I have been using Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) and 12.04 (Precise) for a while now and as I like the Gnome 2 type desktop (Classic) I would love to continue using them into the future. But there will come a time (Precise ends April 2017, Lucid already stopped last year) when support will seize and quite possibly the repositories of their software packages will fold up as well; meaning that we won't be able to install new applications any longer.One solution is to create your own repositories of all the software packages they offer. They can then be stored on your own computer or external hard drive.

    Application: Wallabag Replaces: Instapaper, Pocket, Readability No matter how well you manage your time often, you probably don’t get a chance to read interesting articles and blog posts when you find them. Luckily, there are several web applications that allow you to clip articles and read them later. The most popular of those applications are Readability, Instapaper, and Pocket. But they’re all closed source. For the open source enthusiast, there’s another option: wallabag. It’s a surprisingly powerful and flexible, not to mention easy to use, alternative to…
  • Taking (another) look at ownCloud

    8 Apr 2014 | 3:12 am
    Online storage and file syncing is an interesting space. You have the big names like Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive. You also have scrappy contenders like SpiderOak and SugarSync. But what about the open source side of the fence? That’s where ownCloud comes in. I took a look at ownCloud about two years ago and was suitably impressed with it. But it was lacking something I couldn’t quite put my finger on. So, ownCloud faded into the background though not off my radar. Flash forward a couple of years. To February, 2014 to be exact. Around that time, ownCloud 6.0 came to my…

You need one or more thumbnails, you need to resize an image for a blog post, you want to create some wallpaper for a mobile device, or you want a smaller version of a logo for a document or web page.

But some of the lighter WMs (Window Managers) don't, and you end up with a default cursor that is a large black X, which is ugly and it is hard to find the hotspot.The xsetroot command sets the default cursor, so you can make it be the more normal arrowcursor pointing to the top left. Other fun options, depending on your cursor theme, are 'boat', 'trek', 'shuttle' and 'hand1'. This all depends on the Xcursor "theme" you have…

Back in September 2012, I had reached out to both the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Free Software Foundation (FSF) and blogged about the new feature landing in Ubuntu 12.10 that would breach user privacy and leak desktop queries. The EFF and FSF both responded by outlining why this new feature was a breach of user privacy and called on Canonical to fix the feature. For two…

    The LoCo Council released an interim report on their census efforts of Ubuntu LoCo Teams and the results were consistent with findings when I did a census of unapproved LoCo Team’s in the United States in 2012. When I did that health check, I found that most LoCos were either unresponsive or had less than positive sentiments on the direction of the project and some had chosen to let their approval lapse on purpose. It was a bit discouraging back in 2012 and I remember at that time mentioning it to the Canonical Community Team and suggesting that it would really be nice to see more…

  • Using Netcat to Read, Write Data Across Your Network

    Rob Reilly
    7 Apr 2014 | 6:15 am
    Testing a network connection or troubleshooting a data flow is a common job for the system admin or developer. One tool they can take advantage of: the Netcat command line program, which provides a quick way to read and write data between two devices over a TCP/IP network. I recently used several flavors of Netcat to help me develop a servo control program between the new Arduino Yun and a simple companion slider application, written in Processing, on my Linux notebook. As you probably know, the Yun is an Arduino Leonardo (ATmega32u4 micro-controller) bolted to a Atheros AR9331 chip, along…
