Hash: SHA1

GIMP 2.6.7 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| GIMP 2.6.7 comes with lots of bug-fixes and it contains an important fix for 
| using GIMP with the latest GEGL and babl releases. 


FreeBSD 8.0 â What to look forward to

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the next few months new versions of the major operating systems will be 
| released: Mac OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard) sometime in September, Windows 7 on 
| 22 October, and Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala), also in October.  



Why FreeBSD 8 Won't Rewrite the Book

,----[ Quote ]
| A major release of an operating system typically brings significant changes
| that require users to learn new skills.
| But backers of the open source FreeBSD 8 operating system say that's not
| necessarily going to be the case with its next major version.
| FreeBSD 8 is currently in its beta release cycle with a final release
| targeted for August. The new release will be the first major release since
| FreeBSD 7 in February 2008, with the most recent point update being the 7.2
| release in May of this year.


My First FreeBSD Fling

,----[ Quote ]
| I like FreeBSD now. I have fell in love with Ports. Compiling from source has
| its own advantages as you can specify several compile time options and the
| compiled program is better optimized for your particular system. And it feels
| so damn geeky! I love it.


The new FreeBSD Core Team (2008-2010)

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the major differences between FreeBSD and Linux, is that FreeBSD is
| coherent operating system, and that the building of it is steered and managed
| by a Core Team.


FreeBSD 7.0 review

,----[ Quote ]
| I've long since lost the hope of returning to FreeBSD as a desktop or server
| operating system on my computers. It's probably going to be Linux and OpenBSD
| for me from here on in, barring some revolutionary change in FreeBSD. But
| that's the trouble with FreeBSD -- like an addicted gambler, it keeps trying
| to raise the stakes and make big changes in every release to atone for time
| wasted on fixing old problems. Â Â



Review of FreeBSD 7

,----[ Quote ]
| FreeBSD has come a long way and has created great technical solutions to
| tough problems. The new scheduler will offer performance gains for years to
| come. New architectures are being added frequently, including Sun
| Microsystems Niagra processors, Apple Mac Books (and Mac-mini), and even an
| initial port to the Xbox platform.
| The future is bright for FreeBSD and Iâm certainly looking forward to the
| pending 7.0 release and beyond. The 7.1 release will see the ULE scheduler
| enabled by default and should also see the inclusion of the new installer
| into the mainstream releases. The multi-processor scalability will continue
| with the next goal of linear scalability on sixteen cores. There are now more
| than seventeen thousand ports and, with the new and improved performance,
| FreeBSD makes a formidable desktop and server operating system.


In Open Source We Trust

,----[ Quote ]
| Todayâs post though is disturbing. In A Question of Trust, he discusses a
| certain competitor, Cittio, is possibly not honoring the GPL and not
| disclosing to clients that theyâre actually deploying a solution based on
| OpenNMS.
| [...]
| This is the sort of thing that the community-at-large deserves to know, hence
| the reason Iâm posting this. It deserves our attention and I hope it is
| resolved quickly. The GPL is not a license to rip people off, and you guys
| deserve your just credit and recognition for your hard work and donations.


First look at FreeBSD 7.0

,----[ Quote ]
| So would FreeBSD 7.0 make a decent desktop system? I haven't run it long
| enough to be able to answer the question, but from my initial testing I would
| be perfectly happy to give it a more intensive try. It certainly looks like a
| nicely crafted system, with extreme attention to detail - at least when it
| comes to the kernel and userland.


Ubuntu Mirror returns to the Vietnam BSD/Linux Mirror

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu Mirror has returned to the Vietnam BSD/Linux Mirror. Only the ISO
| images will be available on this mirror due to bandwidth limitations.


Faster Performance, Fewer Machines For FreeBSD?

,----[ Quote ]
| "FreeBSD has the ability to run Linux programs without recompilation," Lucas
| explained. "For example, I use Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux on my FreeBSD
| laptop. It works flawlessly."


What's New in FreeBSD 7.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Federico Biancuzzi interviewed two dozen developers to discuss all the cool
| details of FreeBSD 7.0: networking and SMP performance, SCTP support, the new
| IPSEC stack, virtualization, monitoring frameworks, ports, storage limits and
| a new journaling facility, what changed in the accounting file format,
| jemalloc(), ULE, and more.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
