Open source can help the developing world, but it's not without challenges

Many see open source technology as an ideological tool – a way to promote freedom in a world of closed, proprietary systems. For Canonical’s Jono Bacon, Mozilla’s Stormy Peters and Wikimedia’s Tomasz Finc, it’s more about improving humanity. Speaking at Expand, they argued that open code connects the developing world and delivers meaningful local content. However, the trio is also aware of the potential pitfalls, such as fragmentation. They know that a successful open platform isn’t born overnight.

Trojan targets Linux desktop users, steals web banking info

Malware certainly exists for Linux, but it’s more frequently targeted at servers than everyday PCs. Unfortunately, regular users now have more reason to worry: a rare instance of a Linux desktop trojan, Hand of Thief, has surfaced in the wild. The code swipes banking logins and other web sign-in details, creates a backdoor and prevents access to both antivirus tools and virtual machines. It’s known to work with common browsers like Chrome and Firefox as well as 15 Linux distributions, including Debian, Fedora and Ubuntu. Thankfully, Hand of Thief is partly neutered by its limited attack methods; it relies on social engineering to fool victims into installing the software themselves. Even so, the trojan is a reminder that we shouldn’t be complacent about security, regardless of which platform we use.

Ubuntu team closes its original 'bug:' Microsoft's majority of PC market share

When Ubuntu Linux was still in early development back in August 2004, Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth filed a tongue-in-cheek first bug: that Microsoft had a majority of PC market share. Little did he realize that he’d have an excuse to cross that bug off the list in 2013. Since computing now includes phones and tablets, he argues, that leaves the traditional PC (and therefore Windows) in the minority versus Android, iOS and other platforms. Whether or not you agree with that market interpretation, Shuttleworth is ready to move on – he feels it’s better to polish Canonical’s own cloud, desktop and mobile efforts than to target someone else. It’s undoubtedly easy for Shuttleworth to make peace when the battle is supposed to be over, but we can’t object to such a healthy attitude.

China chooses Ubuntu for a national reference OS coming in April

China’s government and people have historically been friendly toward Linux, although not quite on the level of a new deal with Canonical. The country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is teaming with Canonical to create Ubuntu Kylin, a variant of the regular Linux distribution that would serve as a reference point for local hardware and software developers. A Raring Ringtail-based build due this April should bring Chinese calendars, character input methods and quick access to relevant music services. Later Kylin releases should integrate Baidu mapping, mass transit information, Taobao shopping and a common slate of photo editing and system tools from WPS. The hope is to foster open source development in China as part of a five-year government growth plan – and, we suspect, get away from closed operating systems that Americans control.

Commander Keen designer crowdfunds a sequel of sorts, lets us make our own (video)

PC gamers of a certain age will have very fond memories of the Commander Keen series – usually trying to pogo toward a hard-to-reach gem or frantically escaping a Dopefish. Key creator Tom Hall and his startup Pieces of Fun may be playing our heartstrings like a fiddle, then, by launching a crowdfunding drive for the Keen series’ spiritual successor, Secret Spaceship Club. Along with reintroducing the core sci-fi platform hopping we know so well, the game will include its own editor to let players build their own masterpieces. Newcomers just wanting to whip up a quick map should get a simple mode with easy drawing and visual, cause-and-effect scripting; those with some coding chops will have access to an advanced mode that lets them customize the scripting for objects, cutscenes and even the win conditions. We’ll have the option to publish maps for the world to see, and the results should be playable on a swath of platforms that include Android tablets, iPads, Macs and PCs running either Ubuntu Linux or Windows.

It’s an ambitious plan, and Hall’s development house would like to raise $400,000 by March 1st to make Secret Spaceship Club a reality by February 2014. There’s perks for jumping in early, however, such as becoming an in-game character. Anyone who’s still trying to learn whether or not aliens ate their babysitter will want to at least swing by the source link.

A top Meizu phone can't hide Ubuntu's flaws

The last 12 months have been disastrous for the minor league of mobile operating systems. Jolla’s Sailfish OS has started to capsize, while Blackberry has all but abandoned BlackBerry 10 for Android. Firefox OS, at least on phones, is but a few dying embers and Windows 10 Mobile has arrived with a muffled thud. Does Canonical and Ubuntu share the same fate? Perhaps, although the pair are fighting defiantly this month with a new flagship phone, courtesy of the Chinese manufacturer Meizu.

Meizu unveils the most powerful Ubuntu phone yet

Once again, it’s the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu that’s helping Canonical sell its vision of an Ubuntu handset. Following the MX4, the company has unwrapped the “Ubuntu Edition” Pro 5, which promises the best spec sheet in an Ubuntu phone to date. That is, without you installing the platform on another device manually, anyway. It’s a large handset, dominated by a 5.7-inch AMOLED display (1080p) and a small fingerprint sensor. Under the hood is an eight-core Samsung Exynos 7420 processor, backed up by either 3GB or 4GB of RAM, which varies depending on whether you choose 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.

Linux command-line tools are coming to Windows 10

Now here’s something you likely didn’t expect at Microsoft’s Build developer conference: A staple feature of Linux (and Unix) is coming to Windows 10. The company is integrating the Bash command-line shell and support for Ubuntu Linux binaries into Windows 10’s Anniversary Update. This is, of course, big news for developers who want to use command-line tools while creating apps,but it’s also important for power users who’d otherwise be tempted to install either third-party tools (like Cygwin) or a virtual machine.

Canonical's AWSOME API bridges OpenStack and Amazon clouds, Ubuntu has its head in both

New features and services that improve Canonical’s latest version of Ubuntu seem to keep rolling in. The latest addition being the announcement of its AWSOME proxy service. No, that’s not us getting over excited about it, that stands for Any Web Service Over Me, and it includes APIs that smooth the transition to OpenStack for those currently using Amazon’s cloud services. Although not open source, Amazon’s Web Service has such a large market share, that Canonical clearly wants to make integrating with it as smooth as possible. The AWSOME proxy will only provide basic functionality for the AWS side of things, with users still encouraged to adopt the OpenStack infrastructure for deeper capabilities. Still, if you’re currently working with Bezos’ platform, and this was the last barrier to hopping aboard the Precise Pangolin ship, you’re in luck. Read more
World's slowest Linux computer, says 'Hello Wor...' (video)
Evidently tired of smooth running graphics, lightning fast processing and bags and bags of available memory, programmer Dmitry Grinberg decided to go back to computing basics. And then some. As Linux was developed on a 32-bit machine with 1MB of RAM, this has always been considered the minimum system requirements to run the open source OS. Dmitry, however, put this theory to test, building a barebones set-up with just an 8-bit RISC microcontroller at its heart. Running at a somewhat sedentary 6.5KHz, with only 16KB of SRAM and 128KB of flash storage, these are specs that make most phones look like supercomputers. To get things working, Dmitry had to write an ARM emulator so that the system appeared as having a 32-bit processor with an MMU, and it looks like a 30-pin 16MB SIMM was added, plus as SD card to house the Ubuntu image. Despite all this, he was able to load Ubuntu successfully. Sure, it took four hours, and that’s after two hours waiting for the bash command prompt, but hey. Grinberg claims that the system is still useable, with the command line typically responding “within a minute.” So Dmitri, if you’re reading this on the machine, happy new year! Check the time-lapse video after the break to see it in full, patience testing, action. Read more
'Lite version' of Ubuntu takes Nook Tablet for a spin, ROM can't come soon enough (video)

We’ve heard the promises of bringing Ubuntu past its comfort zone and into the mobile space, but who wants to wait until 2014 when a home remedy can deliver precisely that right now. XDA-Developers AdamOutler and Loglud have been grooming a way to bring the OS to your Barnes & Noble tablet, because – you know – we’re all longing for slates with desktop-scale operating systems on them. At the moment, you can get a quick glimpse of Ubuntu running on the Nook, but porting can only be done via a VNC Server, which opens up plenty of potential avenues for lag to mar the experience. Notably, the delays should all but vanish once a ROM solution becomes available. Now, if we could only get Jane Lynch to sing her way through letting us know the Nook Tablet can also run Ubuntu, we’d be set. Have a peek at the Glee-less demo vid just after the break.

Valve opens Steam for Linux beta registration, wants pros only

Right on schedule (ahem), Valve has begun requesting applications for the first Steam for Linux beta test. There are only 1,000 spots available, but the company is looking for “experienced Linux users” only – presumably, ones that will be better at debugging than spilling zombie brains. So, if you’ve got a rig running Ubuntu 12.04 or above and decent Linux knowledge, head to the source link to register your interest.

Ubuntu 11.10 'Oneiric Ocelot' now available to download

In case you haven’t been keeping an eye on the countdown, we thought we’d remind you that Ubuntu 11.10 – otherwise known as Oneiric Ocelot – is now available to download (completely free of charge, of course). That brings with it an updated version of the Unity interface that includes features like a new alt + tab switcher and “Lenses” with some expanded functionality instead of the previous “Places” feature – not to mention full support for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and other script languages. Did we mention it also now has its own soundtrack? Head on past the break for a taste, and hit the source link below for a nifty web-based preview of the OS before you download. Read more

New Ubuntu 11.10 soon released

The new Ubuntu version has started its countdown to the release date (10th October). I myself use Ubuntu on my laptop since I don’t play any games on it and are very pleased with the current version. Although I always encourage change and will welcome the update with open arms.

List all your shared folders on Ubuntu

Ever try to locate the path to forgotten shared folders, but don’t know where to start?


That’s where all the story begins … ^^

I'm now running Ubuntu on my laptop.

Probably the tenth time I’ve done this, but now we’ve got a desktop and only really use the laptop for watching movies in bed & internet related stuff.

It was running Windows 7 and I wanted to format and install a fresh copy but my laptop is battered to hell and I’ve taken it apart and back together tens of thousands of times and it’s really just had it’s day, this being the case it wouldn’t boot from the DVD and I’d tried again and again with different W7 copies on different discs and in the end I decided that Windows sucks so I’m going with something a little lighter and free of all the bullshit that Windows OS’s come with.
