    • [Make Use Of] 6 Reasons Why Linux Doesn’t Have More Apps

      A majority of Linux apps are community-developed but still, there's a lack of both open-source and proprietary apps for Linux. Why is this so? Linux has an abundance of software, but when you first make the switch, you may be frustrated by the lack of names you're familiar with. If you've used Linux for a while, you may also grow disillusioned by what can feel like a relatively slow rate of change or the enduring lack of certain types of software. Why are certain apps yet to come to Linux, and what is holding back the community from producing more alternatives? Let's find out.

      • What is Dahlia OS and Why You Have to Try It

        Having been a Linux user for what feels like an eternity, there have always been instances where I felt why do we have just Linux dominating? Granted it’s open-source which is great and of course, there’s the Unix family but we cannot exactly claim Unix to be fully open-source – considering the Open Group relationship. Even though we have the BSD family of truly free and open-source Unix operating systems including OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD, etc there is a need to be skeptical about these systems and their interoperability with the future of IoT devices that will continue to define the landscape of technology going into the future. Enter Zircon; Zircon is the new kid on the block that was conceived by Google with the underlying family of operating systems in the image of Fuchsia and Dahlia OS both of which are open-sourced with heavy use of Flutter+Dart all through. Fuchsia is the official operating system upon which the Zircon kernel is continually developed. Learn more about Fuchsia OS and Zircon here! Dahlia OS, on the other hand, is based on the unfinished Fuchsia operating system and as an equally open-source initiative, It does a pretty good job of bringing both the Linux and Zircon kernel operating under one roof, Dahlia OS.

      • [TechRadar] [Older] Best Linux distro for developers in 2022

        The best Linux distros for developers provide a simple, stable, and secure environment for coding and programming applications for the internet, Android, and the cloud. This is increasingly important, because Linux powers the backbone of the internet, mobile devices, and now cloud computing systems. Therefore it's often essential for techies to be able to work directly in a Linux environment, especially for operating servers and for developing software that runs on them. While Linux has a reputation for being primarily for coders and programmers, over the past couple of decades there have been moves to provide versions of Linux that are more friendly to ordinary users, such as by providing more of a graphic user interface (GUI) and be less reliant on command line use. However, at its core Linux still offers a thriving environment for coders and developers.

      • [TechRadar] [Older] Best Linux server distros of 2022

        We feature the best Linux distros for servers, to make it simple and easy to run stable and reliable servers for your home or business. While Windows may be the world's most popular Operating System (OS) for desktop PCs, the world's most popular OS for the internet's web servers is Linux. Usually bundled along with Apache, MySQL, and PHP - and frequently referred to as a LAMP configuration - a wide variety of different Linux distros are used not just for the servers that power the internet but also for the virtual networks behind cloud computing. Sometimes the choice of which Linux distro you use on your servers is down to personal preference, sometimes market forces, and sometimes due to small advantages a particular distro will have in regards to the core applications to be used, security concerns, or stability issues. Ultimately, most web users will never notice any difference because the OS works very much in the background, and it will only be the system administrators and IT managers who take notice of which distro of Linux is used.

      • Migrate Docker Containers To New Server

        Docker makes it simple to deploy container images that contain a fully functional operating system and make use of the host kernel. We’ve already covered the installation and use of Docker containers; in this post, we’ll go through how to migrate Docker containers from one server to another server. Docker containers are relatively easy to set up and manage. We can find hundreds of containers on docker hub and create a full-fledged virtual operating system with just a few commands from the console. In the last post in the Docker category, we learned how to host several websites or applications on a single server by using docker containers. The following commands will allow you to move your Docker containers to a new server. But first, let’s take a quick look at how we’re going to go about accomplishing this. Typically, we deploy a docker image by first downloading it from a source like Docker Hub. The command docker create automatically downloads and deploys the specified container image. After successfully deploying an image and publishing our application. During the production time, the application creates data, and we also install packages that modify the base docker image. When migrating docker containers, we must save the operating container as an image, transmit it to the new server, then load the docker image as a brand new container. Another method of migrating docker containers is to export and import docker containers. Exporting a docker container using docker export command is a little different from saving a docker image using docker save command. docker export command creates a snapshot of a running container whereas docker save commands creates an image that can be used to create container. We can use both the commands to migrate our containers to a new server.

      • Steam Deck may inadvertently steal Nintendo's retro gaming market

        According to PC Gamer, Valve's new Steam Deck is an emulation dream machine. The Steam Deck has one-click access to all of the latest emulators, including Dolphin, DuckStation, PCSX2, BSNES, and even Yuzu, the Nintendo Switch emulator. Gamers can access this list of emulators by switching to the system's desktop mode by holding down the power button--there's no need to enter command lines. This easy access, setup, and execution of emulators could eat Nintendo's retro gaming lunch. Nintendo is removing all Virtual Console games from sale, and by next year in 2023, the Nintendo Switch Online subscription will be the only way to buy and play old-school retro games on Nintendo platforms. Before now there hasn't been an easy way to play older games on handhelds without the use of configuring, jailbreaking and obtaining software downloads/patches, etc.

Right now, Valve use a special queue system giving reservations a rather broad time on when to expect a Steam Deck delivery like Q2 or after-Q2. The good news is though, production is quickly ramping up. Yang mentioned how "in production terms it'll ramp very quickly, in the first month very quickly we'll be in the tens of thousands, by the second month we'll be in the hundreds of thousands and beyond that it'll grow even quicker". Yang also mentioned how once they get into the after-Q2 launch period, things will get a lot clearer.

          Among the many hot project management strategies these days, Agile may be the most widely implemented: Agile techniques like daily stand-ups, scrums, and sprint planning are now ubiquitous in offices and Zoom calls alike. Rather than building towards a singular, make-or-break product release or campaign, Agile project management focuses on small, incremental achievements to encourage forward movement and avoid bottlenecks. Leaders often wonder whether adoption of Agile methodologies is working for their organizations. How can they determine whether or not it’s a success?

          Chris Wright, Chief Technology Officer at Red Hat, conducted a keynote session and elaborated upon the open source possibility around IOWN technology development, and shared Red Hat’s contribution to the IOWN GF. In the IOWN GF technology working group, we are contributing to three task forces: The Data-Centric Infrastructure Task Force, IOWN for Mobile Network Task Force, and the Reference Implementation Model Task Force. We joined the discussion in each TaskForce last year from our perspective based on OpenShift/Kubernetes and RHEL upstream possibilities, and delivered the reference documents summarizing minimum viable versions of IOWN technology in 2021 together with IOWN GF members in each Task Force. Data-centric Infrastructure is designed to enable service providers with the tools needed to build and flexibly place data pipelines, including data processing and storage functions, and to dynamically select data transfer and network protocols for each. Figure 1 provides an example of a Logical Service Node providing Tenant Workloads for overlay solutions. It also shows an enhanced Logical Service Node integrating telco specific accelerators and a vendor’s embedded proprietary code, such as for 5G Radio Access Network.

      • [Hackaday] PlayStation 4 Controller Gets a USB-C Upgrade

        Micro USB was once the connector of choice for applications where USB-A was too big, but now USB-C has come to dominate all. It’s becoming standard across the board for many peripherals, and [Ian] recently decided that he wanted to upgrade his PS4 controller to the newer standard. Hacking ensued. The hack consists of a small breakout board that enables a USB-C connector to be fitted into the PS4 controller in place of the original micro USB port. [Ian] explains what needs to be done to complete the mod, which first involves disassembling the controller carefully to avoid damage. The original microUSB breakout board can then be removed, and fitted with one of a selection of replacement boards available on Github to suit various revisions of PS4 controller. A little filing is then required to allow the new connector to fit in the controller case, and [Ian] notes that using an 0.8mm thick PCB is key to enabling the new breakout board to fit inside the shell.
