Issue#2276: Linux - LXer: SCALE 14X Gets Rolling for the Weekend

  • Published at LXer:

    One of the fears — one of the many in having an established conference at a brand spanking new venue — is this: Suppose they gave an outstanding Friday keynote, and nobody came? All those sleepless nights worrying about it were essentially for naught, since Cory Doctorow’s keynote at SCALE 14X Friday was a standing room only success.

  • Issue#15855: Linux - LXer: Open Source Gaming News From SCALE 14x

    Published at LXer: To start the conference off on Thursday morning, Jorge Castro gave a speech regarding “Gaming on Ubuntu” as part of UbuCon. In only 15 minutes he was able to deliver a State of the Union address on gaming on Linux distros, particularly Ubuntu. He covered the pros and cons of such, Steam, and Linux getting next gen titles.

  • Issue#16010: Linux - LXer: How to transform your Ubuntu installation into a rolling release

    Published at LXer: Ubuntu users out there have two ways to go with their systems. Either they choose to follow the “standard” release that gets upgraded every six months, or choose the latest LTS (Long Term Support) which guarantees security updates and support for a five-year period. The problem with the first is that you'll have to perform major upgrades to your system twice a year, while the issue with the latter is that you won't get any major updates on parts of the system that you may care about using what's latest.
