Stability and cutting edge. Mutually conflicting, but we want it!

Posted 03-13-2013 at 04:22 AM by Randicus Draco Albus
Updated 03-13-2013 at 04:23 AM by Randicus Draco Albus

This is my first attempt to write a blog. I have never had an interest in doing such things, but the time has come to rant. For the last two years, I have seen posts on numerous fora by people looking for, or complaining because they cannot find, stability and cutting edge. There are two problems I do not understand:
1) The desire for SNS. Version 3.18 that was released three or four months ago is too old. I MUST have 3.19, and I MUST have it NOW! This growing trend of believing software is...

Windows: Will it survive, die or thrive????

Posted 03-12-2013 at 03:27 PM by Nbiser

http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/...er-windows-era

This is a very interesting article in my opinion. Windows is only hanging on because that is what people are used to, and Microsoft has, so to speak, cornered the manufacturers into pre-installing it on their computers. This article was written in the days of Vista; 7, a relatively good OS, came in-between Vista and 8, helping to stave off the death of Microsoft. Now with the advent of Windows 8, we are seeing another...

Eclipse makes you lazy

Posted 03-11-2013 at 08:02 PM by jmajor (Sometimes I Visit Here)

So! Many blue moons! (see my other post). My son is now almost 5 and this is my second post.

I have moved from C to Java as my primary programming language. After using Eclipse for some time I had to modify some of my old C code. I opened Kate and started looking around. I kept pressing F3 and not finding what I expected. Yes that's the same F3 I kept swearing about when it wouldn't repeat my previous search.

Now browsing my old code to find what a called function does,...

Ditch Deja Vu Sans Condensed, use Liberation Sans, and be happy

Posted 03-09-2013 at 06:01 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 03-09-2013 at 06:02 PM by the dsc (gruesome spelling mistake)

I used to like the condensed variant of Deja Vu, which is the default font (in the regular variation) for many linux distributions/DEs I guess. I've always disliked the regular variant, I find it too wide, while the condensed is very nice to look at. It's quite a hassle to actually use it everywhere though, either the font is buggy, or the apps that read it are buggy. I think it's the former as other fonts with two "nested subtypes/variants" work (such as liberation). The GUI settings...
