Links 19/06/2008: Big News from AMD (Tux on Box), Clarinet ‘Runs’ Linux

  • AMD Makes An Evolutionary Leap In Linux Support

    Tux being part of their licensed box design, forthcoming CrossFire support, and other major features coming are major wins for the Linux community. For those concerned that AMD is attempting to build back up its binary blockade, don’t worry as their open-source strategy will continue with the RV770.

  • Linux Community Should Plant Seeds for Consumer Demand

    Free and open source software has come a long way toward widespread acceptance over the years, and that can be attributed in no small part to the strength and dedication of the community behind it.

  • To Those Who Make My Job Easier

    I know that isn’t near enough to express my gratitude for the gifts you’ve given this community. There are three of you who know just how generous I can be, but that was a one-time shot and as much as I’d like to match that gesture time and time again…well, we’ll see some day.

  • Linux-powered clarinet playing robot wins international prize

    “To get networking we plugged in a daughter board, and another board for the console, so we ended up with a stack of boards. The Gumstix board is an ARM processor running an Open Embedded Linux distribution,” Judge told Computerworld.

  • Review: Linux Mint 5

    One of the hallmark Linux distributions for new users that we’ve been very pleased with has been Linux Mint. As I’ve said before, it’s built on Ubuntu and is essentially “Ubuntu done right”. With the introduction of version 5, Linux Mint has upped its previous level of perfection (as though they had far to go) and created an even better distribution than before.

  • Damn Small Linux 4.4 Review

    DSL 4.4 was just released on June 9th, so this past weekend I installed it on my Compaq Deskpro Pentium III 800 Mhz machine. It only has 256 megs of RAM, so a lightweight distribution like DSL is a good choice for it. Their site claims you can run DSL 486 DX with 16 megs of RAM, so even this old Compaq should fly with what it’s got.

    Mint is a nice project albeit a little too proprietary for my test. “Ubuntu done right” sounds like a pleonasm to me though.

    Xen is working for Microsoft now, by proxy. It’s good to know that Ubuntu steered away to KVN at the end of last year.

    Microsoft, like Oracle, could never compete. It could just buy the competition of ‘steal’ essential parts of it. Look what it’s doing to Yahoo! at the moment.

  4. EPO Eating Its Own (and Robbing Its Own)

    António Campinos is lying to his staff and losing his temper when challenged about it; Like Benoît Battistelli, who ‘fixed’ this job for his banker buddy (despite a clear lack of qualifications and relevant experience), he’s just robbing the EPO’s staff (even pensioners!) and scrubbing the EPC for ill-gotten money, which is in turn illegally funneled into financialization schemes



  5. [Meme] EPO Budget Tanking?

    While the EPO‘s António Campinos incites people (and politicians) to break the law he’s also attacking, robbing, and lying to his own staff; thankfully, his staff isn’t gullible enough and some MEPs are sympathetic; soon to follow is a video and publication about the EPO’s systematic plunder (ETA midnight GMT)



  6. EPO.org (Official EPO Site) Continues to Promote Illegal Agenda and Exploit Ukraine for PR Stunts That Help Unaccountable Crooks

    epo.org has been turned into a non-stop propaganda machine of Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos because the EPO routinely breaks the law; it’s rather tasteless that while Ukrainians are dying the EPO’s mob exploits Ukraine for PR purposes



  7. [Meme] EPO Applicants Unwittingly Fund the War on Ukraine

    As we’ve just shown, António Campinos is desperately trying to hide a massive EPO scandal



  8. EPO Virtue-Signalling on the Ukrainian Front

    António Campinos persists in attention-shifting dross and photo ops; none of that can change the verifiable facts about the EPO’s connections to Lukashenko’s 'science park' in Minsk

    What became known as the so-called ‘Leenode’ is a cautionary tale, but maybe it is also a blessing in disguise because IRC as a whole seem to have become a lot more decentralised (as everything should be)

    When you’re taking massive 'gifts' from AMD (and also some from Microsoft) maybe it’s not surprising that editorial decisions change somewhat…



  19. EPO Has No F-ing Oversight

    Earlier today SUEPO mentioned this new article demonstrating that EPO President António Campinos can very obviously and blatantly violate the Code of Conduct of the Office without facing any consequences; there are translations too, so the report is now available in four languages



  20. [Meme] Linux-Rejecting Foundation

    The Linux Foundation never really leads by example; by default, it uses proprietary software



  21. Linux Foundation Almost Never Uses Open Source

    The Linux Foundation uses proprietary software (look where they hire and take money from) and be sure they're probably not even aware of it

  24. Patent Examiners Rising Up Against EPO Abuse

    Unhappy with the law-breaking autocracy (the EPO‘s management breaks the law as a matter of routine), fast-deteriorating working conditions and rapidly-decreasing quality of work (or lack of compliance with the law), workers have escalated further, topping off strikes and industrial actions with a large-scale petition



  25. [Meme] What Managers (Really) Mean by Acting Professionally

    The myth of 'professionalism' needs to die along with the façade of conformity as prerequisite for employment (Linus Torvalds can work just fine in a bathrobe in his own home)



  26. Internal Poll: 93% of European Patent Office (EPO) Workers Are Unhappy With the EPO

    On top of strike/s and industrial action/s there are now also petitions; at the EPO, almost all staff is "disgruntled" because of utterly corrupt and defunct leadership

    Earlier today we saw several more people crossing over from the World Wide Web to Gemini; we're trying to make a decent aggregator and archive for the rapidly-expanding Geminispace, which will soon have 2,500 capsules that are known to Lupa alone
