        TUXEDO OS is an operating system developed specifically for hardware sold by TUXEDO. But now, you can install it on any non-TUXEDO device as well.

        There’s a growing trend for Linux-focused PC vendors to develop their own distro to showcase the best points of their shiny new hardware. Until recently, TUXEDO OS was available only as a pre-installed option on machines from TUXEDO Computers, now anyone can download and install it on their computer.

        How do you know when a file has been changed on a filesystem? Developer tools that need to hot-reload programs or kick off compilation or deploy loops on code changes need a reliable source of information (at Google, I built this for Kubernetes development).

        You can periodically poll for changes – that’s potentially slow and intensive for large file subtrees.

        Ardour 7.0 is here more than a year after Ardour 6.9 and introduces significant new features like clip launching (a.k.a. cues) to allow you to experiment with combinations of various loops and one-shot samples. This feature is similar to the workflow you’ll find in commercial software like Ableton Live.

        Cues can be controlled in Ardour 7.0 using Ableton’s Push 2 surface. Support for Novation Launchpads and similar devices is planned for future releases. Along with clip launching, the new Ardour release also introduces loop libraries to access tons of additional audio and MIDI loops.

      • Ardour 7.0 released

        October 15th, 2022: After more than a year since Ardour 6.9, Ardour 7.0 is now available. This new release features major new features for the software, as well as substantial (even if largely invisible) internal engineering changes. We are happy to bring “clip launching” functionality into Ardour for the first time, along with many other significant improvements, including lots of enhancements for MIDI editing ….

        This release also sees the addition of official builds for Apple Silicon systems (previously available only via the nightly build site). It is also the end of 32 bit builds for Ardour for all platforms as part of the official download site. Some will remain available on the nightly site for the near-term future.

  • Distributions and Operating Systems

    • Ubuntu Pit10 Most Popular Linux Distros Available Out There in 2022

      In 2022, the most popular Linux distributions are MX Linux, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora, and OpenSUSE. These distributions have remained popular due to their user-friendly interfaces and wide range of software support. While other distributions, such as Arch Linux and Debian, will continue to be popular among more experienced users, they do not offer the same level of convenience or ease of use that these four distributions provide.

      As the Linux ecosystem continues to grow, there will likely be even more distributions that become popular in the coming years. However, it is unlikely that any of these new distributions will unseat the current leaders. This is because the user base for Linux is relatively small compared to other operating systems such as Windows and macOS. This means developers are less incentivized to create new distributions catering to a specific niche.

      While the current crop of Linux distributions is more than adequate for most users, there is always room for improvement. For example, some users may prefer a more lightweight and efficient distribution. Others may want a distribution that offers more cutting-edge features. Whatever the case may be, there is sure to be a Linux distribution that meets your needs.

    • Matt RickardWhy Is NixOS Popular Again?

      There’s been a renewed interest in NixOS, and its package manager, nixpkgs. The key feature of Nix is declarative configuration – the Linux-based operating system is defined by a set of declarative packages built by the Nix package manager, nixpkgs. It was originally released in 2003 but lately has been seeing renewed interest: a more formal team structure around development (link), new startups built around Nix, 30% YoY user growth (link), and exponential growth in GitHub stars.
      Is NixOS gaining rapid adoption, or is it just hype?
      My interest in Nix came during the mid-2010s when I looked at it as a model to solve to the difficulty of installing and configuring packages inside Docker containers. There were a few attempts at making a container-native OS (notably, CoreOS), but neither those operating systems nor NixOS ultimately stuck.
      There’s been a few notable startups using Nix, but otherwise, I haven’t seen much adoption in the wild. Replit uses Nix to decrease startup times for REPLs (which comes mostly from installing packages). Cardano, the blockchain, uses Nix to configure nodes.

      • Drew DeVaultStatus update, October 2022

        After a few busy and stressful months, I decided to set aside October to rest. Of course, for me, rest does not mean a cessation of programming, but rather a shift in priorities towards more fun and experimental projects. Consequently, it has been a great month for Helios!

        Hare upstream has enjoyed some minor improvements, such as from Pierre Curto’s patch to support parsing IPv6 addresses with a port (e.g. “[::1]:80”) and Kirill Primak’s improvements to the UTF-8 decoder. On the whole, improvements have been conservative. However, queued up for integration once qbe upstream support is merged is support for @threadlocal variables, which are useful for Helios and for ABI compatibility with C. I also drafted up a proof-of-concept for @inline functions, but it still needs work.

        Now for the main event: Helios. The large-scale redesign and refactoring I mentioned in the previous status update is essentially complete, and the kernel reached (and exceeded) feature parity with the previous status quo. Since Helios has been my primary focus for the past couple of weeks, I have a lot of news to share about it.

      • Rust

        • Linux Links6 Top Free and Open Source Rust Web Micro-Frameworks – LinuxLinks

          One of the types of software that’s important for a web developer is the web framework. A framework “is a code library that makes a developer’s life easier when building reliable, scalable, and maintainable web applications” by providing reusable code or extensions for common operations. By saving development time, developers can concentrate on application logic rather than mundane elements.

          A web framework offers the developer a choice about how to solve a specific problem. By using a framework, a developer lets the framework control portions of their application. While it’s perfectly possible to code a web application without using a framework, it’s more practical to use one.

          Rust is a systems programming language that runs fast, prevents segmentation faults, and guarantees thread safety. It accomplishes these goals by being memory safe without using garbage collection. The language enables developers to write programs with the performance and control of a low-level language, but with the powerful abstractions of a high-level language.

    • TediumSelf-Referential Fame: Famous for Claiming to Be Famous

      On October 1st, 1932, legendary baseball player George “Babe” Ruth did something he was famous for. He hit a home run. But this was his most famous home run, one that would be familiar to anyone with a moderate understanding of 20th century American history. “The Babe’s Called Shot” is a part of American folklore, rather than verifiable history, because we don’t know if it actually happened. The Babe says he called it. The pitcher, Charlie Root, says Ruth was gesturing to the crowd. But considering Ruth’s stature as one of America’s greatest sports icons, his version of events won out in the larger public consciousness, even if baseball fans are aware of the full controversy. The weight of fame is not consistent. Some people are “famous”, a rare few are famous. While there is no one path to fame (or its cousins notability, notoriety, and infamy), the potential rewards entice a great many to overlook the risks. And quite a few achieve fame by simply calling themselves famous. Today’s Tedium is looking at the concept of self-referential fame and just what it means to be famous anyway.

        TP-Link network products — including Wi-Fi routers, repeaters, and access points (AP) — use deep packet inspection (DPI) to intercept specific Domain Name System (DNS) requests. Each product looks for one or two domain names and will hijack the request to issue a local response containing its own internet protocol (IP) address.

        TP-Link wants to make it easier for its customers to get into the web administration interfaces of its products. No one wants to remember the IP address needed to access it, right? The IP address can also change over time, depending on your network configuration.

        • The Register UKFujitsu and Japanese Uni want internet ‘endorsement layer’ • The Register

          Fujitsu and Japan’s Keio University have proposed adding an “endorsement layer” to the internet, to verify information and prevent the flow of fake news and disinformation.

          The need for such a layer is explained in a white paper and accompanying video released on Thursday.

          The video details a scenario in which a social media user posts an image of what appears to be unusual quantities of dirty brown water coursing over a dam’s spillway and into a river with an opinion that a flood is imminent. The scenario assumes the post is taken to be true – sparking anxiety among residents, possible panic buying, or even an inappropriate emergency services response.

          The endorsement layer the authors envisage would scour the internet for authoritative data sources, such as water level sensors. Users who view a post about a possible flood could request to access such data, which would be published by the endorsement layer. A better-informed reader would therefore know not to raid supermarkets for a year’s worth of toilet paper, and emergency services would save their resources for more pressing tasks.

          The proposal imagines the endorsement layer would not rely on a single sensor or information source, but instead offer users the chance to add data to the endorsement layer. The result would theoretically be “an endorsement graph with a data structure expressing the connection between additional information linked to the data.”
