E17 as a Desktop — don’t try this at home!

  •; By Piotr Maliński (Posted by michux on Jul 23, 2007 2:50 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Reviews; Groups: Linux
E17 is a still being developed version of a graphical environment called Enlightenment. E17 has been developed for a long time already. Updates have been appearing often, but they used to become obsolete in a few weeks after releases. Has anything changed suddenly? No, nothing really. Stable release of the environment is not planned anytime soon, but this of course isn’t a problem for us to have a glance at what Enlightenment has to offer at the moment.

The ‘Cost’ of GPLv3 is the Loss of All Threats to Free Software

We continue to explore the Linspire/Microsoft affairs and we identify some discomforting facts. As we stated before, personal benefits were possibly (even probably) part of all those recent deals.

Ubuntu’s best move ever

"Was it the Dell laptops deal? The costless CD shipping from Shipit? The launch of the fully-free Gobuntu? Or will it be the liberation of the proprietary Launchpad platform? No, good people. Ubuntu’s best move ever has happened quietly, and it’s on its homepage."

Index of open source clinic management systems ?

Linux: 2.6.23-rc1, Merge Window Closed

As expected, Linus Torvalds released the2.6.23-rc1 kernel two weeks after the release of 2.6.22, ending the merge window, "and it has a *ton* of changes as usual for the merge window, way too much for me to be able to post even just the shortlog or diffstat on the mailing list".

Ubuntu Live 2007 Day 1

Starting out the first-ever Ubuntu Live 2007 conference was Mark Shuttleworth's keynote followed by Stephen O'Grady and Jeff Waugh. The day was broken up into a variety of sessions from the deployment of an open-source model at Purdue-Fort Wayne to building cross-OS applications on Linux. Starting off the day was the announcements of Canonical Landscape for system monitoring and management and Ubuntu 8.04 being a Long Term Support (LTS) release. The day had ended with free food and drinks along with some entertainment and other fun. The Ubuntu Live 2007 conference is being put on by Canonical and O'Reilly in Portland, Oregon this week prior to the start of OSCON 2007. Phoronix served as media partners with O'Reilly for this event.

What Linspire Agreed To

We can read the Linspire-Microsoft patent agreement now, and I thought it would be worthwhile to give it a close, line-by-line reading. I'll explain it as best I can, but ask your lawyer if it matters to you in a real-world sense. For our purposes here, let's just have fun with the worst deal I've seen yet in this category.

Puppy to Slackintosh: the week's distros

Another week and another set of new Linux releases. Tectonic does a quick roundup of what's new on the Linux distribution front.

Pleasant Diversions At Studio Dave

Judging by the number of hits tallied for Troubleshooting Linux Audio Part 1 it seems the topic is of interest to many readers. Alas, I must apologize to everyone waiting for the next parts of the series. Various events have kept me from completing it in short order, but you may rest assured that it will return in my next installment. Meanwhile, this week we'll look at two excellent applications that are coming into greater use here at Studio Dave, the LiVES video editor for Linux, and Reaper (yes, again), a native Windows audio/MIDI sequencer running under Wine.

People needed: Editors for First Steps in GNU/Linux

LXer Weekly Roundup for 22-Jul-2007

LXer Feature: 22-Jul-2007

This week we have the launching of a new Linux Hardware site, cool videos of PhotoSynth and SeaDragon and MPX or Multi-Pointer X being demonstrated and a Firefox user bangs his head against a wall. All these and more plus I have to create a FUD article section just to contain them all.

Is 'green' software possible?

As Kermit the infuriating frog puppet once said "It's not easy bein' green" - especially as a software developer. OK you can do all things that everyone else does - buy a Toyota Prius hybrid or even cycle to work (as long as you avoid Lycra and silly helmets). You can scribble notes on recycled paper with a pencil (made of wood from managed forests) and turn your machine off standby. You can even diligently recycle your printer ink cartridges and offset your energy consumption by planting a few trees.
