Re: Yes newbies - try Petra
@Andy "why the hell aren't Mint users getting them all in a timely fashion. Seems pretty risky to put newbies in that position"
This pretty much sums it up. Not that it bothers me in a SUSE user :)
Re: Does it really include Docker?
I was under the assumption that Docker is still very young and still under lots of development? I was surprised when I read it came with 6.5 tbh
Beast Mode Enabled
looks like a workhorse!
At least with dropbox there is an actual business and potential to move into new markets (enterprise) with there new features and offerings, the Twitter valuation is just plain stupid. 20 billion!? Are dropbox making money? Or just burning through anything they are making?
Mixed feelings on this. The disgusting things that are being blocked in this example is obviously good, but cant help but feel this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to deciding what people see and don’t see online.
Re: Media Firestorm?
If he is savy as you say, he would have been clever enough to know that calling people who don’t support software "the open source tea party" would have got him bad press.
But he went ahead and did it anyway.
Re: We have a corporate app store.
Out of interest what kind of software you using to automate run this? Currently my guys in my team are looking to do the very same. Cheers.
Really good article enjoyed it. I tend to agree with the last guy that had a go on it. Unless im docking it into another monitor then its just to small to get my work done on it (not sure if i can dock it?). Its like the 11 inch mac air, too small again.
13 inch is as small as i would go tbh, I sometimes find my 15 inch laptop to small if I don’t have access to another monitor.
Yes, i think the people have the right to know your attempting to censor reviews of Ubuntu the you don’t like! Whether it was deliberate or not. Im of the opinion this was most certainly deliberate. Got that arrogant Shuttleworth attitude all over it.
No i dont. But I do for Cyanogenmod which im running currently does come with any of googles closed source stuff as standard.
Re: It's not only iCloud. You can also give your data to Google
You don’t have a clue what is reporting back on your phone currently. At least as a open source project we have some idea what’s going on, because we can see the source!
Re: Want that screen.
My thoughts exactly! How hard can it be!?
Re: Enterprise Management
They are only as secure as the user that is using the device.
Dropbox is hardly the solution for enterprise data. Maybe a similar application, but companies are trying their hardest not to let users use applications like dropbox as they are a security risk.
Re: Edge Snapping == Fail
I find it a nice useful feature in KDE to be honest.
As far as im aware have PC devs not been able to do this already....for years?
Why such a big fuss for stuff that has been held back from consoles and should have been there years ago. The devs are getting dedicated servers essentially, and this is nothing new to any gamer that has played more than call of duty: super ops on the xbox or playstation.
Re: Commercial Software Vendor hates FOSS!
"Certainly if they are anything like UK government depts. are at specifying and obtaining delivery of projects then the whole thing will be a cluster-fuck from beginning to end."
Seconded. This new spine 2.0 project in NHS they have started sounds really interesting. Whether the NHS manage to turn it into one huge "clusterfuck" is yet to be seen. But going by past projects its a ticking time bomb.
"hasn't used .doc for many versions now."
I think that’s why he got his grump on in the first place, the fact they change the .doc/.docx every version forcing users into upgrading to keep up with their constant change of proprietary formats. Which in reality make no difference to your common user.
Stupid triple chinned idiot. Easily the most annoying man in Scotland.
"all Aussie dealers would be able to sell Surfce."
And then what happens when your a company that needs to keep data indefinitely for auditing..S3 just keeps stacking up and up per month.
That tape library is looking pretty good now. Suitable for some not for all. Its not a one size fits all hat here.
Re: opensuse + build studio...
"Sometimes a distro upgrade is best left to when you have time to deal with the burn in period..."
"1) RIM never built really good smartphones. The only killer feature was its messaging service, which appealed to the business users wanting it. If you didn't need it, there were better ones."
No the actual build quality from the hardware was second to none. Under the plastic was a metal shell around all the components that stopped tampering or any kind of post forensics. It wasn’t impossible but in comparison to the alternatives they were leaps and bounds ahead.
Only reason I know this was because was present at a conference where the MET police discussed it. Very interesting, because they hated getting BB's because they were so much harder to get any information off.
Running 12.3 just now and in my opinion its one of the best distro's out there.
Well at $800 dollars a server they wont be getting many customers pah!
Re: What lack of app?
what is the definition of a real professional app?
Re: Does Oracle care?
I think your right to be honest. Anyone that buys Oracle DB's don’t buy MySQL support. They buy closed source OracleDB. MySQL will wither away and mariaDB will take over as open source alternative. Meanwhile oracle will keep making lots of money on OracleDB.
Like, who even listens to these guys?
Re: iPad Mini 2
Prices are not that close. Think the iPad mini is 270 squid is it not? Making this 70 more for 16Gb versions. If they do go to 2048x1536 might find it struggles with the pixel pushing on games? It was a point made when the nexus 10 had high pixel density.
Re: Entire article is full of FUD bullshit
Correct me if im wrong but its going to cause problems for drivers. Proprietary graphics drivers are going to be designed for this window manager and not Wayland. Leaving everyone else that doesn’t want to use Mir with drivers like we have just now. aka sh*t.
Re: Why not Rackspace/OpenStack?
Haha couldn’t agree more! Worrying people pay to listen to gartner!
Re: Do they mix?
they do not. Its literally songs taken from charts and put on a CD.
Unreal they think they can claim anything..
Im just going downstairs with my server rails in the hope to scare out the Chinese guys in my data centre! Be back soon!
No support for RT, talk about kicking somebody while they are down...
Feel free to point out these equivalents.
Re: Won't use this service
Since when has everyone been deserting them for azure? Any facts or figures on this? Or just foaming at the mouth for MS?
Yes i agree its a great development environment, and hard to beat unless you run a "private cloud" in house.
its working for me. No excuse for piracy now.
Whats the point in all this patent nonsense if when a decision is made, Obama can just step in and say no thanks.... Think there needs to be a good look into how patents are being abused. This Apple vs Samsung stuff is just ridiculous.
I think the fact that if you go with their private cloud you get unlimited RHEL guests is key! For people thinking about any kind of visualization they would have to think about this. Obviously that depends on the pricing for the private cloud. But I will be keeping my eye on this most certainly.
Re: Three -or None
Yes Edinburgh here and im getting **** all. 2G connection is going as well. Bloody annoying is what this is! Meant to be taking an important call later today.
Re: I'm not sure Microsoft *has* won.
MATE is no where near stable enough to be appearing in RHEL. They still use a solid version of Gnome2 in RHEL. Why would you bother with MATE which is very new and unstable if you ask me. Certainly not suited to a enterprise environment currently.
I would never had thought it as a easy text editor. But its most certainly worth the learning curve! Once your past the rage induced comas at the start, the time saved on the little things is just great. And its universal to nix* :)
Re: Here we go again...
Don’t know I would say that they were terrorists.
"The use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes"
I would say they fall under that very easily. They are still barking mad but terrorists nevertheless IMO.
If these are as good as they are saying it will be powering my build for a media /gaming PC for under the TV. These look like they could plow through simple games e.g L4D, Counter Strike etc. While remaining cool & quiet enough to be the perfect media center.
Cant wait for them to give Intel a boot up the arse.
Re: x86 Arch
I don’t really feel there are many that warrant buying a console to play. Plus with the move to x86 more games will be easier to port, less hassle for the devs. Might not be as many games that never make it over.
Nope its the old spinning rust platter ;)
Now these are on x86 what is even the point of having a console. These are just PC's, with a custom OS. Then bolted on with premium services that charge you lots of money for nothing of value. Even a medium spec PC will be around 500 - 600. And you will be able to do alot more on it.
I wonder how loud this is going to be the last one was like a 747 taking off...
Most of them now offer a local sync of your play lists. Which is good feature. Just sync on your wifi before you leave then listen off your local storage. Good feature.
