Intel hangkártya recsegés

Debian Buster-en jött elő, hogy a hang rendszeresen recsegett hangfájlok indulásakor. Mivel (a systemd-hez hasonlóan) sokan szidják a pulseaudio-t, elsőnek arra gyanakodtam. De nem az volt a hibás, eltávolítása után is fennállt a probléma. Az ok az alaplapi Intel hangkártya alapértelmezett energiatakarékossági beállításában rejlett.

"Google beats Oracle—Android makes “fair use” of Java APIs"

"Oracle has spent many millions trying to get a chunk of Android, to no avail.
...
Google's win somewhat softens the blow to software developers who previously thought programming language APIs were free to use. It's still the case that APIs can be protected by copyright under the law of at least one appeals court. However, the first high-profile attempt to control APIs with copyright law has now been stymied by a 'fair use' defence."

A GNOME Shell káros hatásáról

"... it seems that with every minor update to GTK3, themes get broken. I experienced this myself trying find a GTK3 theme that worked well with SpaceFM – most of the themes are broken in GTK 3.4 thru 3.6 (you can see the warnings when running SpaceFM in a terminal, and functions will be broken in the app). Thus the better-maintained themes (such as Clearlooks-Phenix and DarkMint) will have different versions for every minor version of GTK. The less well-maintained ones will simply remain broken.

Theme development is a tedious and difficult task, and for the GTK devs to be so careless in breaking their API at every turn disrespects the many hours people put into making themes for it. Yet as I read some of the GNOME developer comments below, I was given to believe that this breakage stems from a Microsoft-like climate of preventing users from customizing their systems, and deliberately breaking the work of others so that your ‘brand’ is the best. Anytime I hear the word ‘brand’ being used in Linux, I know something valuable is being poisoned.

CDEbian

"After a few weeks of work with the CDE code, I’m happy to share what I hope will eventually has become a simple Debian distribution with CDE as the GUI. ... CDEbian 0.6 is a fully up-to-date Debian Squeeze i386 6.0.6 with CDE 2.2.0c and docs built and installed."
