GTD and KDE in Linux Just wanted to share a good news, especially if you are a Linux and KDE user. Looking around the information today, there is a project sponsored by Google’sSummer of Code concentrated on implementing Getting Things Done methodology in KDE‘s email client, Kontact. Kontact is what I used in my work laptop and love it a lot as an organizer and email client, especially the functionality of assigning shortcut keys to do different filtering – for instance I assigned several shortcuts for moving mails to different context folders, and file mails into different folders for GTD. Fedora Linux capitulates to Microsoft boot certificate IDG News Service - In order to get its Linux distribution to run on the next generation of secured desktop computing hardware, the Fedora Project will obtain a digital signature from Microsoft, a developer from the project announced Wednesday. "This isn't an attractive solution, but it is a workable one," wrote Matthew Garrett in a blog post on Wednesday. "We came to the conclusion that every other approach was unworkable." The next release of the open-source distribution, Fedora 18, due in November, will be the first version able to run on computers that use UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface), which requires the operating system to furnish a digital key before it can be run by the machine. With the growing adoption of UEFI among hardware developers -- largely at the behest of Microsoft -- the Fedora Project faced a number of alternatives, none of them completely satisfying, Garrett said. Fedora could ignore the request for a digital certificate.

Puppy Linux Last Update: 2016-08-01 05:24 UTC OS Type: LinuxBased on: IndependentOrigin: AustraliaArchitecture: i386, x86_64Desktop: JWM, OpenboxCategory: Desktop, Old Computers, Live Medium, NetbooksStatus: ActivePopularity: 20 (521 hits per day) Puppy Linux is yet another Linux distribution. What's different here is that Puppy is extraordinarily small, yet quite full-featured. Puppy boots into a ramdisk and, unlike live CD distributions that have to keep pulling stuff off the CD, it loads into RAM. This means that all applications start in the blink of an eye and respond to user input instantly. Puppy Linux has the ability to boot off a flash card or any USB memory device, CDROM, Zip disk or LS/120/240 Superdisk, floppy disks, internal hard drive.

GNOME vs. KDE: The Latest Round — Most free software users have long ago made their decision about whether they prefer the GNOME or KDE desktop.

Mavizen's 130 MPH TTX02 Electric Motorcycle Runs on Linux Photo: Mavizen Why did you stop? Well, I was recompiling my kernel and got a segfault... Debian GNU/Linux Last Update: 2016-02-03 06:20 UTC The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system.

Linux is a completely free piece of software started by Linus Torvalds and supported by thousands of programmers worldwide. Application software Application software is all the computer software that causes a computer to perform useful tasks beyond the running of the computer itself. A specific instance of such software is called a software application, application program, application or app.[1] The term is used to contrast such software with system software, which manages and integrates a computer's capabilities but does not directly perform tasks that benefit the user.
