Problemi di copyright per UbuntuLite e Ubuntu eee

17 09 2008

UbuntuLite e Ubuntu eee sembrano avere ricevuto entrambi la lettera di Canonical che gli intima, peraltro in maniera gentile e disponibile, di non usare il nome Ubuntu per le loro distro rimaneggiate e alleggerite per funzionare sui netbook di ultima generazione

Ramvi, padre di Ubuntu eee, ha gia’ una serie di alternative ricevute dai visitatori del suo blog, mentre per UbuntuLite pare non ci sia ancora in programma alcun cambio..

Staremo a vedere !!





Gimp vs Photoshop

10 09 2008

I’m no graphics professional, but like probably most of you, I do need to edit photos from time to time. I used Adobe Photoshop before since it is the most widely used image manipulating software. But when I started using Linux, things changed.

Since GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is included by default in most Linux distros, I had no other choice but to try it. I then became more and more comfortable using it that I completely forgot about Photoshop. I know that I can still install Photoshop in Linux through software virtualization, but no thanks.

Here are my reasons why I made the switch and why I think GIMP is better than Photoshop:

1. GIMP has a simple and easy to use Graphical User Interface compared to a more cluttered working environment in Photoshop.

2. GIMP has a way lighter footprint than Photoshop. You don’t need plenty of disk space to install GIMP. The size of Gimp’s installer is less than 20MB; Photoshop could be around 600MB.

3. GIMP is wicked fast. The minimum recommended RAM requirement to run GIMP is only 128MB. The latest version of Photoshop will probably need 512MB at minimum.

4. GIMP has the right amount of essential features that I need. I think Photoshop is way too bloated and some of its included features are unnecessary.

5. GIMP can read and write most Photoshop native PSD format files, but Photoshop does not support GIMP’s native XCF file format.

6. GIMP has a more powerful automation than Photoshop.

7. GIMP’s open development model means that it is much more readily available on more operating systems, plugin development is not limited by developers and as such has no need to compete with Photoshop; by comparison, access to Adobe Photoshop’s SDK requires authorization.

8. GIMP is available at no cost compared to Photoshop’s hefty price tag.

How about you? Do you also feel that GIMP is better than Adobe Photoshop?

Installare Linux con Wubi

Wubi: installare Ubuntu Linux in un modo nuovo

“Prima di installare una distribuzione Linux per la prima volta, spesso, si ricorre a live-cd o a virtual machine. La velocità e la reattività offerte da soluzioni simili sono ben differenti da un’installazione vera e propria. Una soluzione di compromesso, simile a una configurazione multi-boot, è offerta da Wubi ed è dedicata a Ubuntu Linux”

Linux popularity globally

27 08 2008

Self-explanatory

On a global level, the interest in Linux seems to be the strongest in India, Cuba and Russia, followed by the Czech Republic and Indonesia (and Bangladesh, which has the same regional interest level as Indonesia). The first Western country when looking at regional popularity is Germany which is the 10th country in regards to search popularity for Linux.

Some interesting observations
  • Ubuntu is most popular in Italy and Cuba.
  • OpenSUSE is most popular in Russia and the Czech Republic.
  • Red Hat is most popular in Bangladesh and Nepal.
  • Debian is most popular in Cuba.
  • Cuba is in the top five (interest-wise) of three of the eight distributions in this survey.
  • Indonesia is in the top five of four of the distributions.
  • Russia and the Czech Republic are in the top five of five of the distributions.
  • The United States is not in the top five of any of the distributions.

Note again that when we say “popular” here, we mean how popular the search term is. After all, this is based on Google search data.

It might also be worth pointing out that the results are normalized, so the size of each region is removed as a factor. In other words, everything is in proportion to the size of the region (the total number of searches in that region, we assume). That means that larger regions are not favored over small, as would be the case otherwise.

Now on to the results for the individual Linux distributions.
