How to Add Application Shortcuts to the Ubuntu Desktop

Unlike Windows, Ubuntu doesn't automatically add desktop shortcuts for the apps you install. While this might not cause problems for experienced Linux users, those who come from Windows can find this behavior strange, provoking them to switch back to their old OS. After all, who wouldn't want the convenience of launching their apps directly from the desktop—that's what a desktop is for!

Humble Bundle’s Hubris, Support For Linux And Apple Ends February 1st

Humble Choice, Humble Bundle’s subscription service, will be going through some drastic changes as of February. They are dropping their current three tiers for a single $12/month tier, which does still give you permanent access to the games released each month, or at least until they change the rules again. Current subscribers have been told to download their DRM-free copies of games they own before February as they will lose access after that … or at least until the games come up on the monthly list again.

Linux to Adopt New Multi-Generation LRU Page Reclaim Policy

How to Manage EC2 Instances from the CLI

Nowadays, it doesn't make sense to run your own servers unless you have a specific reason to do so. Cloud computing vendors have a lot to offer with their products.

BeOS rebuild / Haiku has a new feature / that runs Windows apps

The Haiku operating system has an experimental new feature, WINE. Originally a Linux subsystem, WINE can run unmodified Windows programs on other operating systems. Edward FitzGerald translated only 158 of the more than 1,200 quatrains attributed to the Persian Astronomer-Poet Omar Khayyám so there are probably more experimental operating systems out there than there are of Omar's rubāʿiyāt in English. Very, very few such OSes ever amount to much – a few demos, some sketchy code on GitHub, and that's the end.

I'm sure they will, just like Apple is doing with their chips. But what alternative is there? Nobody in the free software community has really made any serious headway in selling systems to the point that they could make their own custom chips and when you look at the performance and power consumption you get with Apple's chips it's totally understandable that Microsoft sees the need to compete there. You didn't think they would really target investing billions of dollars creating a free and open source SoC.
