Russia's Preference for Open-Source to Hurt U.S. Tech Stocks

TuxMachines - Wed, 2016-10-12 19:28

Amid rising political tensions with the U.S., Russia is planning to further lower its usage of licensed software from IT giants like International Business Machines Corp IBM , Microsoft Corporation MSFT , SAP AG SAP and Oracle Corporation ORCL .

Per Bloomberg, "The State Duma, Russia's lower house of parliament, is drafting a bill to restrict government agencies from buying licensed software, giving preference to open-source software."

The proposed law is an addition to an already existing federal law that came into effect on Jan 1, 2016, which restricts the use of foreign software in the public sector, if there is a domestic version available.

linux for my macbook 2009

Reddit - Wed, 2016-10-12 19:19

Hi all, I have an "old" macbook early 2009 core2duo with mechanical hdd and 4gb of ram. I'm a bit tired of OSX, so I want to install only linux. anyone have experience with linux on this macbook?

I've tried: Mint cinnamon: it works well except for wifi its also pretty smooth Mint xfce: it's not really fastest than cinnamon, so i think there is no reason to use xfce over cinnamon. (yes I love eye candy) Fedora 24: I don't know why fedora always fascinating me. It seems good on the machine except for mouse that its too sensitive, wifi, and some graphical glitch while I search between apps.

Do you have some advice for me? my heart likes fedora but I can't find much info about this distro on my macbook. Oh I forgot to say: I use my macbook, just for make some reserch, a bit of web developing, and watching videos nothing more.

Build your own Raspberry Pi tornado warning system

LXer - Wed, 2016-10-12 18:19
At 4:30 in the afternoon on November 15, 1989, an F4 tornado ripped through Huntsville, Alabama killing 21 people. It could have been much worse save for the quick thinking of the people running the after-school program at Jones Valley Elementary. They took the children under the stairs as soon as the power went out. They survived, though the top floor was torn from the building. A mother out front who had come to pick up her child was among the 21 casualties.read more

Google Pixel: Devices are a dangerous distraction from the new AI interface

Pick a partner, eat the Nougat, feel the loveAnalysis There was a distinct whiff of the retro about Google’s launch of its Pixel smartphone. Exclusives with selected large mobile operators; yet another attempt to create a unified Android experience; even the clear focus on Apple as the primary competition – all these should be issues of the past.…

Pieter Alexander Hintjens: 3 December 1962 – 4 October 2016

TuxMachines - Wed, 2016-10-12 16:46

After a long and painful illness, a battle with cancer over the last six years, my brother has died in Brussels, aged only 53.

My love for him has always been the adoring, muted kind that looked up to the light he shone, that basked in his enthusiasm and tried, and failed, to keep up with the thousand-and-one ideas he gave voice and form to. Many of his passions were beyond my comprehension but very real, nevertheless. As a computer programmer, writer of internet protocols and founder of on-line communities, his interests went way over my head. As an author, latterly, we connected and I was able to collaborate with him on one of his books – The Psychopath Code – an involvement for which I am profoundly grateful: Not only has this particular book helped me to navigate a few tricky moments in my own life, but the understanding we shared was like coming home.

I can’t begin to do justice to my brother’s legacy as a professional innovator, thinker, and networker. Pieter was one of these rare people totally unafraid to take chances, to think not just outside the box but into the next universe. How he maintained his enthusiasm and energy, where his inspiration came from, I shall not know in this lifetime.

His death last Tuesday has opened up a hole in my life, a tear in the fabric of my normal. Poignantly – and painfully – it is only as his legacy becomes clearer that I notice the loss of his quiet, determined contribution in my life. Always, in the background, he encouraged me, supporting my modest hopes for an ordinary life: my ambitions to study, to write, to marry and have a child. In all these attempts he was unwaveringly supportive, while seeking so little from me in return. Of course, elder brothers are looked up to, and often expected to take the lead. But lately, in these last few years, while he faced pain and uncertainty – about which he has written so candidly on his blog – while he battled fear and the shadows of disappointment with his trademark wry humour, he faced these challenges fearlessly and with a fiery determination that is frankly awe-inspiring.
