- So, in the latest RC, LibreOffice came labelled as “Personal Edition”.
- Some people freaked the heck out thinking there would be a monetized version coming as well.
- Apparently, they weren’t entirely wrong.
- There’s currently an ongoing debate to maybe have a Red Hat style paid for license for big business.
- Honestly, that makes sense in the stupid way of thinking big business works.
- They made a whoopsie and showed off something they were not ready to talk about just yet.
- Getting software approved for Enterprise starts with “who do we blame when it goes wrong so it’s not my fault”.
- That’s reality, deal with it.
- Going to community forums for a show stopping bug is a non starter.
- The five year plan makes sense for starting a business model.
- Especially because of the growth of LibreOffice in the enterprise and government sector.
- This should include the online suite that they have been playing with for quite some time.
- If you really and I mean really want to play with Dex on Linux there is a way.
- You’re going to need a HDMI Dummy Terminator and a USB-C dock.
- Along with the ability to compile a little code.
- Since Samsung killed the Linux beta this is your only option.
- This does seem like a lot of work.
- Although a lot of people missed having the Samsung “Desktop eXperience” on Linux.
- It uses scrcpy, which we’ve talked about before.
- It just renders the image being sent to the dummy plug directly on your Linux.
- A reimplementation of the IRIX desktop from SGI machines running on Linux.
- Is tailored for CG Artists and animators in the Motion Pictures and Special Effects Studios.
- I used IRIX on my SGI machines to learn Alias Wavefront, now Maya, back in the day.
- A low resource, low memory and fast desktop for rendering.
- This is a continuation of the 5dwm.org project released many years back.
- They provide an install *.sh for RH, Ubuntu, Debian and Arch.
- 64-bit only.
- Consider getting this packaged.
- Indigo Magic Desktop was one of the very first comprehensive desktop environments to be deployed on UNIX.
- You can now switch from Classic SGI to Modern look with only one click of the mouse.
- Unicode, UTF-8 and Anti-aliased text support.
- Improved Xinerama support.
- A gang of bug fixes.
- Thankfully desktops have evolved since the 90’s.
- This looks like a whiz bang action distraction mess compared to my XFCE desktop.
- CLI Display Manager on TTY.
- So it’s not a Mike Teehan To Yourself?
- I’m disappoint!
- So this means I can have 64 tty instances of Empty on Debian ;-)
- Kinda reminds me of Amarok.
- Can stream from PLEX.
- Last.fm scrobbling.
- Available as a Flatpak.
- It’s nice to be in the top 15 :-)
- This list includes a lot of my favourites.
- My bad.
- “I asked this question on social media…” “Based on the feedback…”
- I’m surprised those many people would admit to listening to this nonsense!
- Hello new people!
- I don’t know if you are listening but you are downloading quite a bit.
- Speaking of …
Slice of Pi
- Random reads are 35% faster, and random writes are 20% faster.
- Could come in handy if you are making a Pi NAS.
- The SCSI standard uses constant bitrate instead of burst.
- Which makes copying large files much faster and consistent.
- I have a lot of vintage SCSI drives in this room!
