  • Windows for Linux

    Two uncertain years have taken their toll on people’s and business’ willingness and ability to budget for new PCs or even upgrade existing Operating Systems. This is golden for Linux since it is free. Not so golden for Microsoft.

    • Linux Powers 91% Of The World’s Top 500 Fastest Supercomputers

      The Top 500 Project lists the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world biannually. They have released this year’s list and in terms of the operating system used it is Linux all the way with more than 90% of the supercomputers running on Linux.

    • Linux Adds to Super Computing Dominance: Good News for Linux Users

      So why do Linux users care? Because the work accomplished by the Super Computer manufacturers (IBM, HP, Fujitsu, Cray and so on) is poured back into the kernel and ends up helping all users. Just remember that today’s desktop PC was considered a super computer not that long ago. Advances in multi-core technology driven by super computing requirements of a few years ago are now used by financial services companies in trading applications to power their business.

    • Google to allow developers to use Chrome operating system for free

      Internet giant Google will launch its Chrome operating system in the Australian spring, with developers now eager to get their hands on the open-source software.

    • Chrome OS Strives to Replace Desktop Culture

      Google’s Chrome OS is coming to a netbook near you sometime later this year. The Web-centric, Linux-based, open source platform will offer a lightweight, cost-effective alternative operating system for portable computing. Eventually, Google plans to expand the scope of Chrome OS to take on Windows on the desktop as well–a goal that requires both a solid operating system and a significant culture shift.

      • Bullish Average Crossover for Red Hat Inc. (RHT)

        The stock price of Red Hat Inc. crossed above the 50-day moving average on lighter than usual volume. The crossing of the stock price above the 50-day moving average may signal the beginning of a noteworthy bullish trend. Traders use moving averages to identify changes in trend, those who can make those trends work in their favor will increase the number of winning trades.

      • Scholarships for open source contributors

        The Fedora Scholarship program, sponsored by Red Hat, recognizes one high school senior per year for contributions to the Fedora Project and free software/content in general. With a selection process that looks at the student’s contributions to Fedora and other free software projects and uses members of the Fedora community as references, it’s a little different from most scholarships you might be used to seeing. In addition to $2,000 USD for each of 4 years of an undergraduate education in any field of the recipient’s choice, the scholarship includes 4 years of annual all-expenses-paid trips to the nearest FUDCon, the Fedora community’s main gathering of contributors, which happens once per year in different parts of the world.

      • Shuttleworth: Excited by Linux on ARM movement

        As well as making for a consistent platform for Linux across all major ARM devices, the other major advantage of the initiative, says Shuttleworth, is that it will speed up time to market for developers. “If you can develop your software for ‘linux on ARM’, rather than a specific CPU, you can choose the right hardware for your project later in the development cycle, and reduce the time required for enablement of that hardware.”

        • Vinux, Linux For Blind

          Vinux community has announced the 3rd release of Vinux – Linux for the Visually Impaired, based on Ubuntu 10.04 – Lucid Lynx.

        • Peppermint OS: Another member of “Team Linux”

          The first question that springs to mind when hearing of a new Linux distribution is not “what does it do?” but “why?” It would seem by now that virtually every possible angle has been covered, and that a Linux distribution must exist for almost any use case one could conceive of. Yet the recently-announced Peppermint Linux is slightly different in that it seeks to bridge the gap between standard desktop computing and “cloud” computing.

        • Lucid Puppy – Linux for Legacy Computers

          One of the original targets of Linux was the under-powered computer gathering dust in the closet destined for electronic disposal. While that sounds like a noble goal, it isn’t reality for the majority of today’s Linux distributions. Xubuntu says it’s for the limited resource computer, but even it has a minimum memory requirement of 256 MB. You probably won’t have a very pleasant experience running Firefox on a machine with less than 512 MB of memory.

    • QuokkaPad open-source ereader/tablet almost on sale

      Open-source ereaders aren’t exactly new – the txtr promises to give access to its underlying architecture, for instance – but the Australian QuokkaPad may have taken the longest to reach the market. The 8-inch LCD 800 x 600 touchscreen tablet is based on a 400MHz MIPS processor, and usually runs Linux 2.6.24.3 with the GPE Palmtop Environment UI on top; however, there’s also room for two other kernels, such as Android or Windows CE.

    • SAP invests $10M in DeviceVM’s browser-and-cloud OS

      Enterprise software supergiant SAP has poured ten million dollars of investment from its SAP Ventures arm into DeviceVM, whose Linux-based Splashtop quick-boot operating system is pre-installed on many of the top brands of notebook and netbook computers.

      [...]

      SAP’s goal for DeviceVM is to create an enterprise-IT grade version of the same type of software Google plans for its Chrome OS operating system: A quick-booting — three seconds on a Lenovo — rock-solid Linux boot with only a standards-compliant browser and a few other essential apps onboard. Such a lightweight configuration is easier to maintain and, at least in theory, less prone to bugs and security problems.

    • SAP Ventures Sinks Cash Into Instant-on Platform Vendor

      The Linux-based Splashtop runs separately from a device’s underlying OS and includes a number of applications, including a Firefox-based browser; music, photo and chat functionality; and Skype calling.

      • Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro Coming to UK

        A remarkably small device given its functionality, the Pro weighs in at 118 grams and measures 9 x 5.2 x 1.7 cm. Inside this tiny shell, Sony Ericsson has managed to squeeze a 600 MHz processor, allowing the Mini Pro to run applications without a hitch. Running on version 1.6 of the open-source Android OS, the X10 Mini Pro has access to plenty of applications to use this processing power on. With over 38,000 applications on the Android Marketplace, and more being added every day, there is something for everybody. Open-source tools and support allow you to create and publish your own applications as well, should you be unable to find what you’re looking for.

    The reason his organisation usually focuses on open source software is because it is licensed in a way which allows for the language of its interface to be changed easily. The opposite of open source software is proprietary software, where the company that develops it forbids you to change it.

  • BBC Radio uses open source to push out live text service

    The BBC is using open source technology to provide visitors to its 10 national radio websites with a live text service.

    The live text tells users what’s on air now and what is coming up, whether it be the current number 1 on the Chris Moyles show, football match commentary on Radio 5 Live or the latest comedy on Radio 4.

  • Africa

    • Open source could be Africa’s technological solution

      That major computing companies are unlikely to want to invest heavily in Africa is not lost on the continent’s brain trust.

      Sure, there could be some investment in major cities, but for the most part, the continent’s on its own. The Free Software and Open Source Foundation for Africa is fine with that. OK, perhaps “fine” would be overstating it, but FOSSFA knows that’s the reality and so is bringing together the most skilled computing minds together to develop and distribute applications throughout Africa in local languages.

    • Tectonic relaunches

      Tectonic, one of the only websites in Africa specialising in open source news, has been relaunched.

      The site, which closed down in July last year, began publishing again on June 1.

      Tectonic editor and founder, Alastair Otter, closed the site last year saying that other projects and pressures had made it difficult to keep it running. “At the time I was involved in a number of other projects and the added pressure of maintaining the site, which wasn’t my primary job, became too much.”

    • TransferSummit – The practical magic of open source

      The event, says Gardler, is a salute to “the spirit of traditional business-academia knowledge exchange” but he emphasised the practical nature of TransferSummit; “Unlike other events, our reach goes beyond the theoretical: we’re focussing on the strategic solutions that improve collaboration between commercial and academic concerns”. The aim is to allow participants to understand, share and discuss the strategic and tactical mechanisms, such as community outreach, academic / business partnerships, spin-outs, start-ups, applied research, intellectual property licensing and collaborative think tanks, so that they can grow their organisations effectively and in an open source way.

    • WordPress 3 RC shows open source polish

      WordPress is one of the great open source success stories with both its software and the WordPress.com site itself. Google ranks WordPress.com the 12th most visited site on Earth with 120 million unique visitors.

      WordPress version 3 is now in the final phases of development with a release candidate now out for early testers on self-hosted WordPress installations. Those that use WordPress.com however don’t have to wait. WordPress is leveraging it’s massive 120 million unique visitor base to actually help test the latest version of WordPress 3.

      [...]

      So what’s new in WordPress 3?

      Lots, but at the top level WordPress 3 gets a new custom menus system (that’s now deployed for WordPress.com users). That’s going to be a big deal for many users, as it will lead to a new generation of theme development.

      Take that, Wikihaters. A new study says Wikipedia is as accurate a source for cancer information as a professionally reviewed resource — assuming you can wade through the lousy prose.

      Cancer researchers from Thomas Jefferson University compared the accuracy of oncology information on the popular open-source encyclopedia with that on the National Cancer Institute’s Physician Data Query (or PDQ), a professional database that is peer-reviewed and edited. Both were fact-checked against textbooks to see whether cancer patients can trust the information they’re getting online.

Days ago it became apparent that Microsoft’s patent troll is still attacking Linux with patents and Zemlin’s decision to appoint Microsoft as the At-Large Director (in effect bossing Linus Torvalds) at the ‘Linux’ Foundation’s Board of Directors is already backfiring. She not only gets her whole salary from Microsoft but also allegedly protects sexual predators who assault women… by hiring them despite repeated warnings; if the leadership of the ‘Linux’ Foundation protects sexual predators who strangle women (even paying them a salary and giving them management positions), how can the ‘Linux’ Foundation ever claim to represent inclusion and diversity?
