    Kde was the default desktop. Gnome has just created fragmentation, with the dishonestly name Unity, Mate, Cinnamon lxde xfce etc. We need convergence: one default display server, one window manager,...

    Maybe this is time to question the whole Gnome philosophy. I don't feel the Open source fundamentalist approach has really worked. We've ended up with Google being the biggest user of Linux. While we...

    For now the JVM is the lesser evil. Scala is a far superior language to either Java or C#. It runs on the JVM. If we can continue to ramp up the adoption of Scala then we can get the resources and...

    Well I've been predicting for a while that the Self-Appointed Benevolent Dictator for Life would prove to be the Mussolini of Open Source.

    I wonder if part of the delay is making Mir Wayland compliant. Which of course they could have done from the first.

    I'd love to get rid of GLX. Xlib is awful to work with. But from what I've read even if you're using XCB you have to use some xlib functions to get an OpenGL context. So how do I open a Window and...

    Its Glx that is at version 1.4 not my systems implementation of OpenGl. From what I've learnt in the last day GlEW the GL extension Wrangler is the standard way to use later GL functionality. GLEW...

    In my view Scala is definitely the language we should be supporting. Its a better replacement not only for Java, but also for Python and Ruby. It could really help Linux, but for it to really...

    If I've understood things correctly AMD and Microsoft are very buddy buddy at the moment, while Nvidea and Intel are less close. Hence Nvidea's new interest in Linux and the Steam box. Unfortunately...

    What I'd really like to see is a SystemD package manager. Then along with Wayland we'd have a unified core of a desktop/ laptop/ tablet/ phone operating system that significant numbers of developers...

    The context is that the 16 GIg figure I quoted is becoming typical for new mid level desktops. For getting a desktop up and running most of us are drowning in RAM. Wanting to be able to use a couple...

    i've got 16Gig on my my not particularly high end desktop, with an option to upgrade to 32 Gig if I need to. In 2014, I don't think we should hold back the entire Linux ecosystem for devices that are...

    I'm totally confused. I read the original article. I understood that Baloo is replacing Nepomuk in KDE, is this not the case?

    I've just been looking at Sailfish. It seems like the best Linux Phone OS. Currently I don't even have a proper smart phone, just using my old Nokia N8 for calls and camera. I'm a Scala man, so it...

    Well this decision lays bare Canonical's game, I'm surprised its not been more remarked on. At any point Canonical could have abandoned the CLA for Upstart. There was a chance at least of swaying...

    I'm writing a little game app. I may choose to use an asymmetric cla at some point. I would like to see more proprietary software come to Linux. However there's a world of difference between an...

    GPL brings big disadvantages. It brings big advantages as well hence its success. Richard Stallman does not use a mobile phone. His idea of freedom is not the same as mine. In its early years the...

    I'm running three monitors off a 7790 2 1920 x 1200 + 1 1920 x 1080. Up until now I haven't been able to get my screens configured properly with radeon. Most distros it doesn't even see them as...

    Canonical have put their own interests before Linux Desktop /Laptop. We have a major split within Linux. SystemD and Wayland on the one hand. Ubuntu's Upstart and Mir on the other. This creates a...

    You've got to give it to Steam, they've certainly got balls. They're going head to head against Microsoft.

    Now I'm just an individual, my power in the market place is microscopic. But as someone...
