23 years of Linux

August 25th, 2014 No comments

Congratulations, Linus Torvalds, and thanks for inventing and writing the GNU/Linux Kernel since 23(!) years!

Hello everybody out there using minix -

I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing
since april, and is starting to get ready. I’d like any feedback on
things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat
(same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons)
among other things).

I’ve currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work.
This implies that I’ll get something practical within a few months, and
I’d like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions
are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them :-)

Linus (torv…@kruuna.helsinki.fi)

PS. Yes – it’s free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs.
It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never
will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that’s all I have :-(.

FaaS – Fuckup as a Service

whistle.im-logo-bigAllegedly “save” and “secure” e-mail services nowadays start popping up all over the net. – Here’s the latest Fuckup called whistle.im which was revealed by CCC Hannover:

Seit uns die Snowden-Enthüllungen gezeigt haben, dass die NSA und das UK nicht nur in der Lage sind, alle Verbindungen, die die Grenze passieren mitzulesen, sondern dies auch tun, ist eine deutliche Steigerung des Interesses an Verfahren für die Verschlüsselung von Kommunikation im Internet zu erkennen. Dieses begrüßenswerte Phänomen entwickelt jedoch zunehmend einen bitteren Beigeschmack durch neu entstehende Projekte, die aus Marketingzwecken grade jetzt aus dem Boden gestampft werden. Diese Projekte spielen mit dem gesteigerten Problembewusstsein der Bevölkerung, ohne dass sie einen wirklichen Schutz liefern.

Neben der “E-Mail Made in Germany” brüstet sich ein Projekt von zwei Studenten namens whistle.im damit, sichere Ende-zu-Ende-Verschlüsselung anzubieten. Auch sie legen Wert auf den lächerlichen “Made in Germany”-Slogan. [...]

After many months of constant development, the Debian project is proud to present its new stable version 7.0 (code name Wheezy).

This new version of Debian includes various interesting features such as multiarch support, several specific tools to deploy private clouds, an improved installer, and a complete set of multimedia codecs and front-ends which remove the need for third-party repositories.

Aaron EFFTo treasure the subject and issues that Aaron Swartz was fighting for, I would like to refer and remind to my mail to Richard Stallman, Lawrence Lessig and Cory Doctorow, which I wrote on 21st of January 2012.
