  • ThinkTiny — The ThinkTiny is a miniature laptop computer with a 0.96 inch display and a design that’s heavily inspired by Lenovo/IBM ThinkPad style. There’s even a TrackPoint-like pointing nub.
  • Darling Picks Up New Contributors For Its macOS Compatibility Layer On Linux — Darling is the long-standing (albeit for some years idling) effort to allow macOS binaries to run on Linux that is akin to Wine but focused on an Apple macOS layer rather than Windows. This summer it's been moving along and seeing some new developer contributions.
  • Darling Progress Report Q2 2019 — We are very excited to say that in Q2 2019 (April 1 to June 30) we saw more community involvement than ever before. Many pull requests were submitted that spanned from bug fixes for our low level assembly to higher level modules such as the AppKit framework. Thanks to everyone for your contributions and we hope for this level of engagement to continue.
  • Raspberry Pi 4 Desktop Kit — Full desktop computer kit - just connect to HDMI display(s)

  • Raspberry Pi 4 on sale now from $35 — A 1.5GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU (~3× performance)
  • Raspberry Pi 4 Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 Install / Config Guide — Right now there is a memory limitation of 1 GB in 64 bit mode on the Raspberry Pi 4. This is apparently due to the SD card driver breaking when more than 1 GB of RAM is present. This will all be solved eventually but until then I recommend using the 32 bit version of Ubuntu or waiting until the Raspberry Pi 4 support catches up. If you want to run the 64 bit one now anyway it works fine other than the memory limitation.
  • Raspberry Pi 4 on Arch Linux ARM
  • Fedora 30 - Rasbberry Pi 4 support - arm - Fedora Mailing-Lists
  • Manjaro announces partnership, will start shipping closed source FreeOffice suite by default — Additionally we ship FreeOffice 491 by default. This is possible since we partnered up with Softmaker 70.

  • AWS Cloud Practitioner Study Group — RSVP to this study group created to help you pass the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification starting on Wednesday July 31st at 11am Pacific.
  • Introducing Fedora CoreOS — Fedora CoreOS is built to be the secure and reliable host for your compute clusters. It’s designed specifically for running containerized workloads without regular maintenance, automatically updating itself with the latest OS improvements, bug fixes, and security updates
  • Fedora CoreOS - Getting Started — Fedora CoreOS has no install-time configuration. Every Fedora CoreOS system begins with a generic, unconfigured disk image. On first boot Ignition will read the supplied config and configure the system. Ignition configs are usually supplied via the cloud’s userdata mechanism, or, in the case of bare metal, injected at install time. This guide will show you how to launch Fedora CoreOS on AWS, QEMU, and bare metal as well as how to create Ignition configs.

In this article, I explore the exciting new world of rootless and daemon-less Linux container tools.
  • Replacing Docker with Podman — Yeah, you read it right… while Docker is a buzzword in the tech industry now. we will see the consequences of using it and how we can solve the problem with Podman. Replacing Docker with Podman

Special Guests: Alan Pope, Anthony James, Brent Gervais, Daniel Fore, Dustin Krysak, and Martin Wimpress.

Links:

  • systemd-nspawn - ArchWiki — systemd-nspawn may be used to run a command or OS in a light-weight namespace container.
  • Transparently running binaries from any architecture in Linux with QEMU and binfmt_misc
  • QemuUserEmulation - Debian Wiki — This page describes how to setup and use QEMU user emulation in a "transparent" fashion, allowing execution of non-native target executables just like native ones.
  • Firefox 67: automatically unload unused tabs to improve memory — If things go as planned, Firefox 67 will introduce a new feature to unload unused tabs to improve memory. The initial bug report dates back eight years but work on the feature began in earnest just a short while ago.
  • Chrome OS 74 dev channel brings Linux app improvements (Crostini) — There’s now support for audio playback when using Linux apps. Up until now if you wanted to use Linux software to watch videos, listen to music, or do anything else that requires sound, you were out of luck.
  • GNOME 3.32 Lands Long-Awaited Fractional Scaling Support — Fractional scaling allows for greater control over the UI scaling than the previous integer based scaling of 2, 3, etc, to instead support fractions like 3/2 (1.5) increase in user-interfaces. Fractional scaling is primarily to improve the user experience with modern HiDPI displays.
  • Systemd-Free Debian "Devuan" Planning Their First Developer Gathering This Spring — Taking place in Amsterdam from 5 to 7 April will be the first Devuan conference for "init freedom lovers".
  • Canonical adds containerd to Ubuntu Kubernetes — Enabling Kubernetes to drive containerd directly reduces the number of moving parts, reduces latency in pod startup times, and improves CPU and memory usage on every node in the cluster.
  • Jupiter Broadcasting Meetups
  • Ubuntu Podcast Listener Get Together — We're having a Get Together in Reading, UK on Saturday March 16th. We'll meet at Breddog in Reading!
  • Dotfile madness — To those of you reading this: I beg you. Avoid creating files or directories of any kind in your user's $HOME directory in order to store your configuration or data. This practice is bizarre at best and it is time to end it. I am sorry to say that many (if not most) programs are guilty of doing this while there are significantly better places that can be used for storing per-user program data.
  • More home directory pollution — I looked in my home directory and now see (in addition to 26 dot-files) directories named go, snap and systems.
  • Steve Reaver on Twitter — There is so much junk in my home dir I had to ls it in column format. I've just about given up using ~ because of all the crap that application put in there!
  • “Please move the “$HOME/snap” directory to a less o...” : Ubuntu Bug #1575053
  • Why do hidden files in Unix begin with a dot? — The answer is very simple, because it's extremely easy to test if a file is hidden or not by simply testing the first character of the filename.
  • Yet Another Dotfiles Manager — When you live in a command line, configurations are a deeply personal thing. They are often crafted over years of experience, battles lost, lessons learned, advice followed, and ingenuity rewarded. When you are away from your own configurations, you are an orphaned refugee in unfamiliar and hostile surroundings. You feel clumsy and out of sorts. You are filled with a sense of longing to be back in a place you know. A place you built. A place where all the short-cuts have been worn bare by your own travels. A place you proudly call… $HOME.
  • Lyft to spend $300 million on Amazon Web Services by 2022 — Notably, Lyft said that if its usage of Amazon's cloud doesn't hit or exceed that $300 million threshold, it'll have to pay the difference. Lyft committed to spending at least $80 million in each of the three years of the deal, with the stipulation that it will spend $300 million in aggregate overall
  • MongoDB shares plunge on concerns that Lyft is moving to AWS
  • Flowblade — Flowblade is a multitrack non-linear video editor released under GPL3 license. From beginners to masters, Flowblade helps make your vision a reality of image and sound.

  • Shotcut — Shotcut is a free, open source, cross-platform video editor for Windows, Mac and Linux.
