    Point Linux 3.0, dubbed "Agni," combines a solid operating system with a traditional no-frills approach to performance and reliability. In several ways, Point Linux belies the criticisms of Linux desktop newcomers who find that Linux not simple and straightforward to use. Point Linux is easy to install. It has a clear interface. Everything works out of the box. Two reasons for this glowing assessment are Point's roots in Debian GNU/Linux and its integration of either the GNOME 2 fork desktop MATE or a slightly tweaked version of Xfce.

  • How To Change Boot Order/Set Default Boot OS In Ubuntu 14.10/15.04 / Linux Mint Or Other Derivatives

    30 Aug 2015 | 8:02 pm
    If you are dual booting then probably you have suffered through a problem of booting into wrong OS or secondary OS because it's on top of grub menu. Recently somebody asked this to me that How can he boot into his primary OS by default. So I thought to write a tutorial. If you want to boot into your preferred OS without always pressing 'down arrow key' when you turn on your computer then read further for the solution. Let's go ahead!YouNex asked me yesterday that how can he boot his primary OS automatically unless he wants to boot his secondary OS. Well, this simply means everything…

  • Gentoo Package Repository now using Git

    11 Aug 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Good things come to those who wait: The main Gentoo package repository (also known as the Portage tree or by its historic name gentoo-x86) is now based on Git. Timeline The Gentoo Git migration has arrived and is expected to be completed soon. As previously announced, the CVS freeze occurred on 8 August and Git commits for developers were opened soon after. As a last step, rsync mirrors are expected to have the updated changelogs again on or after 12 August. Read-only access to gentoo-x86 (and write to the other CVS repositories) was restored on 9 August following the freeze. History Work on…

As previously announced [1] [2], and previously in the discussion of merging Overlays with Gentoo’s primary SCM hosting (CVS+Git): The old overlays hostnames (git.overlays.gentoo.org and overlays.gentoo.org) have now been disabled, as well as non-SSH traffic to git.gentoo.org.

    Recently there has been a flurry of concerns relating to the IP policy at Canonical. I have not wanted to throw my hat into the ring, but I figured I would share a few simple thoughts. Firstly, the caveat. I am not a lawyer. Far from it. So, take all of this with a pinch of salt. The core issue here seems to be whether the act of compiling binaries provides copyright over those binaries. Some believe it does, some believe it doesn’t. My opinion: I just don’t know. The issue here though is with intent. In Canonical’s defense, and specifically Mark Shuttleworth’s…

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:15 pm
    We are raising money to support KDE sprints. People have asked legitimate questions about those funds—who gets the money? Who benefits? To start with, KDE sprints are intensive sessions centered around coding. They take place in person over several days, during which time skillful developers eat, drink and sleep code. There are breaks to refresh and gain perspective, but mostly sprints involve hard, focused work. All of this developer time and effort is unpaid. However travel expenses for some developers are covered by KDE. KDE is a frugal organization with comparatively low administrative…

    Kdenlive is the leading video editor on Linux To wrap up the KDE Incubator success stories, here's a bit from the Kdenlive folks. Kdenlive, one of the rare free-as-in-speech video editors, started its life more than 12 years ago using KDE3 libraries. At that time, it was mostly the effort of a single person—coding, fixing bugs, publishing releases, managing the website. There was no real connection with the KDE Community. Good contributions came in from other people, but no team was built, a risky situation. In 2013, the main developer, Jean-Baptiste Mardelle, was not able to work on the…

  • How to make money from open source software

    2 Sep 2015 | 6:08 am
    Last month we looked at the argument that the open source business model is flawed because selling maintenance and support subscriptions doesn't provide companies with enough revenue to  differentiate their products from the underlying open source software or to compete with the sales and marketing efforts of proprietary software companies. The argument was advanced by Peter Levine, a venture capitalist at Andreessen Horowitz.But Levine's argument only holds – if it holds at all – for companies commercializing open source software using GPL-type licenses.To read this article in full or…
  • Kicking Google out of my life, Part 8: Will I ever go back?

    31 Aug 2015 | 8:04 am
    It's now been over two months since I began my journey to eradicate all traces of Google from my life. And one full month since I achieved that goal and began living fully Google-free. Actually, a few days over a month. I had one or two (short-lived) "Google relapses," so I added a few days to my "totally Google-less" time to compensate for that. I'll be honest – part of me expected that, at the end of my self-imposed Google-moratorium, I would run back into Google's warm embrace. Up until two months ago my entire life (work and play) revolved around Google products and services. Gmail,…

    Recently there has been a flurry of concerns relating to the IP policy at Canonical. I have not wanted to throw my hat into the ring, but I figured I would share a few simple thoughts. Firstly, the caveat. I am not a lawyer. Far from it. So, take all of this with a pinch of salt. The core issue here seems to be whether the act of compiling binaries provides copyright over those binaries. Some believe it does, some believe it doesn’t. My opinion: I just don’t know. The issue here though is with intent. In Canonical’s defense, and specifically Mark Shuttleworth’s…

I am not proposing we actually do this, nor advocating for this. So, don’t read too much into these words… The Ubuntu phone is evolving step by step. The team has worked their socks off to build a convergent user interface, toolkit, and full SDK.

    I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I'm actually a very tiny, tiny little bit 'excited' about Samsung's (...eh) new smartwatch, the Gear S2. It looks pretty decent, seems to have a better input method than laggy touch (Wear) or a finicky jog dial nobody uses (Apple Watch), and the software - that's Tizen, so an alternative operating system! Right? Right? - looks nice, and seems to work well too. The impressive things with the Gear S2 don't end with its new design: Samsung's actually figured out a really smart interaction model for smartwatches that I'm shocked no one else has done yet.

If you were hoping for a radically different design from Motorola this year, you're barking up the wrong tree. As we saw in the leaks, Motorola has kept the imperfect circle design from the original Moto 360 and added lugs on the top and bottom instead of hiding the strap connectors inside the casing itself. This change makes it significantly easier to swap out the strap with whatever you want, but also makes more…

    2 Sep 2015 | 1:47 am
    The best class I took in college was on the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. Until that point, I had avoided philosophy of language as simply being too esoteric and hermetic to be of use. David Pears, a prodigious yet modest and approachable figure visiting from Oxford, changed my mind. In large part because of Pears' instruction, Wittgenstein's philosophy has been directly relevant to my thinking about computer science, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science. When other scholars were thinking that language and thought could be reduced to a universal, logical language, Wittgenstein…

The Robin has a pretty unique and fun design, but the major selling point - they claim - is that the phone intelligently manages its limited storage by offloading lesser-used or unused stuff (content and applications) to the internet. An interesting strategy in the current climate of privacy wariness - especially since these more boutique Android phones tend to be for technologically inclined users, who will be more aware of these issues.

    How many of you have heard of a hidden service in TOR like the Silk Road? It’s really not some mystical location on the dark side of the Internet, or Darknet. While it does sound a bit fantastic, a hidden service in TOR is just a server that is connected to TOR network and is only accessible by a uniquely generated domain name (.onion). The idea is that there aren’t supposed to be any IP’s associated with the server once it’s set up on TOR – making it untraceable. Of course there are ways of exploiting a vulnerability that will reveal that address, but I won’t go into that.
