Flint OS, an operating system for a cloud-first world

TuxMachines - 2 hours 13 min ago

Given the power of today's browser platform technology and web frontend performance, it's not surprising that most things we want to do with the internet can be accomplished through a single browser window. We are stepping into an era where installable apps will become history, where all our applications and services will live in the cloud.

The problem is that most operating systems weren't designed for an internet-first world. Flint OS (soon to be renamed FydeOS) is a secure, fast, and productive operating system that was built to fill that gap. It's based on the open source Chromium OS project that also powers Google Chromebooks. Chromium OS is based on the Linux kernel and uses Google's Chromium browser as its principal user interface, therefore it primarily supports web applications.

What cd or dvd should I use to burn linux onto?

Reddit - 9 hours 19 min ago

I got a new laptop recently and I want to install linux cinnamon onto it. I've succesfully installed linux mint on my older laptop using a dvd rw disc in the past, but now it says the disc is too small since the linux mint is 1598 mb and the disc is half that size. The file I'm burning says linux cinnamon 18.2 64 bit though and I'm not sure if thats the same as the linux mint that I had on my previous laptop, but from what I'm seeing online its the same thing, I'm just confused why it can't fit on the same dvd I used it on as last time. Can anyone help me?

the dvd also has nothing on it.

The origin and evolution of FreeDOS

LXer - 9 hours 21 min ago
I grew up in the 1970s and 1980s. My parents wanted to expose my brother and me to computers from an early age, so they bought an Apple II clone called the Franklin Ace 1000. I'm sure the first thing we used it for was playing games. But it didn't take long before we asked, "How does it work?" Our parents bought us a book about how to program in Applesoft BASIC, and we taught ourselves.

MongoDB's successful IPO reflects its differences with traditional open source

TuxMachines - 10 hours 9 min ago

MongoDB had a good first day of trading with share prices popping roughly 25% over their opening. As the latest big data platform company to IPO, Mongo's fortunes are being compared and equated to Cloudera and Hortonworks.

As upstarts, each is in a race to grow business while whittling down the red ink. Cloudera and Hortonworks are a bit further along this path as their operating losses have begun trending downward - but that happened only after those companies went public.
