While we already confirmed to you that Project Cars would come to Linux thanks to SteamOS, they are now running a poll to see what platforms people are going to play on.
Recognizing that it can't keep up with the Dropboxes of the cloud storage world, Canonical elects to shut down its Ubuntu One file service.
Web servers use HTTP by default, which is a clear text protocol. As the name suggests, a clear text protocol does not apply any form of encryption on the transit data. While the HTTP-based web server is very easy to set up, it has a major drawback in terms of security. Any "man-in-the-middle" is able […]Continue reading...

We've been talking a lot about the power and importance of open access for academic (and especially government funded) research. More and more universities have agreed, with some even having general open access policies for their academics, requiring them to release research under open access policies. This makes sense, because one of the key aspects of education and knowledge is the ability to share it freely and to build on the work of others. Without open access, this is made much more difficult. So it's immensely troubling to discover that one of the biggest science publishers out there, Nature Publishing Group, has started telling academics that they need to get a "waiver" from their university's open access policies.
In today's open source roundup: Is Debian testing or stable your best bet? Plus: Frustrations with Linux, and five myths about elementary OS debunked.
In part 1 of this article series I’ve described a minimal Debian installation using network install image. I started with a regular server, added the desktop environment, and installed some more common desktop applications. In this article I will continue with several enhancements to the previous setup.
Linux can't be understood in terms of hierarchy. Neither can the Internet. That's because both are examples of heterarchy at work.
A new Humble Bundle collection of games called PC and Android 9 has been released, packing no less than five games ready for Linux.
Intrinsyc has launched a 10-inch developer tablet that runs Android 4.4 on a quad-core Snapdragon 805 SoC, and features 802.11ac and a 3D gesture camera.
Earlier today, Jane Silber, the CEO of Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, announced in an official blog post that the Ubuntu One service will be closed, and those who have subscriptions will have their money refunded. This is some sad news for those of us who are using this service.
I've written about and reviewed mobile phones for almost a decade and a half. Everything from flip phones, to BlackBerrys, to today's hottest Android models, and yes, Apple iPhones, have passed through my hands. That experience is why, more than anything, I've ultimately settled on Google Android as my smartphone platform of choice.
The tzdata package is updating in Fedora today, and just to show you how international politics — you know, when one country takes over another — can show up in a software update, take a look at the changelog entry.
This project was started a year ago when Kannada Wikimedian Omshivaprakash was trying to help Professor O. L. Naghabhushana Swamy and Kannada author and publisher Vasudhendra to easily access the vachana (verses) of Vachana Sanchaya. Swamy had challenges in using publicly available content on Vachanas since the data was in ASCII standard and searching text was a huge problem. Pavithra Hanchagaiah started helping to collect information about about vachanas and document them into Unicode by writing scripts to customize open source software to convert the Kannada fonts from ASCII into Unicode.
IPython 2.0 was released today adding widgets, for manipulating Python objects in the kernel with GUI controls in the notebook. IPython comes with a few built-in widgets for simple data types, and an API designed for developers to build more complex widgets.
AMD and Mentor Graphics are developing BSPs based on Mentor Embedded Linux for the new “Steppe Eagle” (G-Series) and “Bald Eagle” (R-Series) processors. The multi-year agreement between AMD and Mentor Graphics covers open source embedded Linux development for heterogeneous and multicore processors from AMD, starting with two new G-Series and R-Series processors expected to launch […]
A few days ago I’ve overviewed Calligra, the KDE office suite, which also includes Krita, the powerful image editing tool. Although I’ve mentioned it as being free, it looks like Krita Gemini, which is the name by which Krita goes on Steam, actually costs $22.99, covering the work needed to build, release and maintain it on Steam.
As someone who makes it to about 20 events a year between open source conferences and science-fiction/fandom-type events, I feel qualified to describe Penguicon as a relatively unique event among its brethren, as it is a bit of both of those. It's also a music event, a gaming event, and a maker event. It's a little bit of all these interests that so often intersect, and this year's event, to be held May 2 - 4 in Southfield, MI, is fast approaching.
Enemy Starfighter is the insanely good-looking space-combat sim that really reminds me of Freespace 2, and the new trailer is brilliant.
Ingenic unveiled a tiny MIPS-based “Newton” COM for wearable and IoT devices that runs Android or Linux on an its Xburst SoC, and offers WiFi and sensors. The Newton computer-on-module development platform was announced both by Beijing-based semiconductor company Ingenic Semiconductor and by Imagination Technologies, which licenses MIPS intellectual property to Ingenic. While Imagination’s announcement […]
Automated testing has its place in detecting IT security weaknesses but it cannot replace manual testing. “Amazingly, even a decade’s old vulnerability like SQL injection still surprises most clients,” adds Jensen. “I think most of the surprises come from the exploitation of seemingly innocuous functionality that results in a devastating vulnerability.”
