“Virtual reality (VR) is nothing new — people have been experimenting with it for decades. But only recently, we have come to terms with having commercial hardware like Oculus or HTC Vive to experience and enjoy VR content within our home,” says Rabimba Karanjai, a full-time graduate researcher and Mozilla contributor, who will be speaking about virtual reality development at the upcoming Open Networking Summit.
I haven’t written a post for some time now, been busy creating something very special which i hope to share about really soon. I usually write in this blog about technical things, and i will continue to do this after this post but i wanted to share some of the insights i gained both from being a returning speaker and track chair in the recent OpenStack summits.
Next-generation data center networking is being driven by open source hardware and software initiatives that are often led by web titans like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and LinkedIn, according to a new report from SDxCentral.
These web companies are crucial because they can handle the processing, networking, and storage capacity required to serve millions to billions of users, according to SDxCentral’s Next Gen Data Center Networking Report. As a result, these companies and others have moved from proprietary networking devices, to open and streamlined hardware based on merchant silicon, the report says.
The Idaho National Laboratory has released a new open-source tool for software developers. The Continuous Integration, Verification, Enhancement and Testing tool, or Civet for short, is the latest INL software to be released free to the public on the lab’s GitHub website.
Companies who do not use open source software will eventually go tits-up according to a top open saucy type.
Speaking to the 2017 Google Cloud Next conference, Linux Foundation executive director Jim Zemlin, who claimed that organisations that "don't harvest the shared innovation" of open source "will fail".
I just switched over from Ubuntu to Debian 9 testing and was thinking about turning on SELinux. Ubuntu had AppArmor and to my knowledge Debian has nothing by default.
The steps are fairly simple on debian wiki, but it doesn't provide any concrete examples of why I should use it, and it also doesn't mention if it will break anything I'm currently using.
I've read the wiki and it seems that SELinux just sandboxes different programs so they don't have access to anything they shouldn't.submitted by /u/AZXXZAZXQ
That’s according to web analytics company StatCounter, which found last week that Windows held 38.6% market share in terms of worldwide OS internet usage while Android came in at 37.4%, within striking distance of surpassing Windows for the first time ever.
Moves by German politicians to undo Munich’s decade experiment in open source are unnecessary, according to the bloke in charge of the project.
There are moves to replace the Linux based systems at Munich after a decade of it being the poster-child for open sauce operating systems. Munich's ruling SPD-CSU coalition is apparently a fan of phasing out the use of open-source software.
Last month, the general council backed a proposal that the administration should investigate how long it will take and how much it will cost to build a Windows 10 client. Once it has that information the council will vote to replace LiMux the custom version of Ubuntu which the council has been developing.
THE HEAD OF IT at the City of Munich's IT services provider [email protected], Karl-Heinz Schneider, has claimed that there are no "compelling technical reasons" for the authority to order a migration back to Windows.
Last month, Munich voted to investigate the viability of creating a Windows 10 client, thus ending its multi-million euro, nine-year experiment in running the municipality on Linux.
Schneider, who heads up the company responsible for Munich's desktop Linux implementation, has spoken out about the move during an interview with German IT publication Heise.de.
Speaking to German IT publication Heise.de, Schneider claimed that he was surprised by the move, adding that any compatibility problems that the City had initially encountered had been fixed.
It is my pleasure to announce that LLVM 4 is now available.
Hans Wennborg has announced the release of LLVM 4.0 and connected sub-projects like Clang 4.0. LLVM/Clang 4.0 is a big update to this open-source compiler infrastructure stack and also marks the change to their new versioning scheme.
For release highlights of LLVM/Clang 4.0, see our feature overview for the advancements made to this compiler stack over the past half-year. LLVM 4.0 was supposed to ship back in February but bugs had dragged out the release until today.

Is there a linux based hotkey pad similar to what Tablet Pro offers for Windows? I want a simple, always on-top bar that I can program a few common key-strokes to speed up my process in programs like Krita and Gimp. It seems like something that should exist if it doesn't.submitted by /u/micah1_8
What are some possible ways to run x86 applications on an ARM processor?
The new Samsung Chromebook Plus is in the mail as a new toy to play around with. I've installed linux via crouton multiple times on numerous CBs to play a few low def games through steam. It just came to me that duh, this thing doesn't have an intel processor and therefore doesn't have the support for x86 eliminating steam and a whole slew of other apps. So what is my way around this, other than returning it and waiting for the Pro?submitted by /u/yadda4sure
Learn how you can use Perl as well as any other language on the Raspberry Pi.
The choice of a new laptop for many consumers is still seen as the head-to-head comparison of Microsoft’s Windows 10 or Apple’s macOS. The third option of moving to a Linux-powered machine has always been a much trickier prospect. A dizzying range of Linux "flavors" coupled with the mysteries of hardware support stops many adept users from making the switch. What if you had an off-the-shelf approach to Linux hardware that just worked?
