Developer survey shows Linux as more popular than Windows

TuxMachines - Thu, 2018-03-22 12:17

Every year since 2010, Stack Overflow conducts a developer survey where they ask the developer community about everything from their favorite technologies to their job preferences. The results of the eighth annual survey, held in January 2018, are out and not surprisingly, this year marks the largest number of respondents ever. Over 100,000 developers took the 30-minute survey revealing how they learn new technologies, which tools they use to get their work done, and what they look for while hunting some job.

Ubuntu Preps to Remove Qt 4 Support from the Archives, Target Ubuntu 19.04

TuxMachines - Thu, 2018-03-22 12:08

With Qt 5 being largely adopted by Qt application developers and other major projects, such as the KDE Plasma desktop environment, the Qt 4 technologies are becoming obsolete, so more and more GNU/Linux distributions plan its complete removal from the software repositories.

Debian Project's Qt/KDE teams are already preparing to remove Qt 4 support from the repositories of the upcoming Debian GNU/Linux 10 "Buster" operating system series mainly because it's getting harder and harder to maintain it now that it is no longer supported upstream, and may cause lots of problems system-wide.

Could we end the escalation soon?

Reddit - Thu, 2018-03-22 10:20

The situation here seems to escalate. While most of the post even during anarchy week has been on topic the atmosphere here is getting more and more toxic. I don't think anarchy week was the best of decisions but I understand that being a mod can be stressful and that one can easily get the impression that people are out to get you. The communication from most sides on the subject has been counterproductive and mainly served to fuel the conflict.

I'm not here to say that any given person is right or wrong but instead to ask everyone to lend a thought to what they really want out of this. Also it might be helpful to read what you're about to post and ask "is this post helping in getting this sub to the state I want it to be?"
