If you’re a Linux fan or open-source advocate looking for a decent laptop, you actually have some solid options right now – much better, at least, than buying a Windows laptop. , install Linux on it and hope for the best.

Dell offered Ubuntu editions of some of its XPS laptops and other PCs for years, and Lenovo sells a respectable collection of desktops and laptops with Linux. System76 sells a selection of Linux-compatible laptops preloaded with Ubuntu or its own Pop! _BONE. The repairman laptop frame does not come with Linux, but it can be configured without an operating system and Framework promises robust Linux support from multiple distros.

But these laptops all have something in common with regular Windows PCs: a reliance on closed-source hardware and, often, the proprietary software and drivers needed to run it. For some people, this is a tolerable compromise. You support closed hardware because it works well and supports the standard software, developer tools, and APIs that make the computing world go round. For others, it’s anathema – if you can’t see the source code for these “binary blobs”, they are inherently unreliable and should be used sparingly or not at all.

the NTM Reform is a laptop for the latter group. It’s a crowd-funded, developed in the open, and extensively documented device that cares more about being open than any other aspect of the computing experience. Predictably, this results in an ideologically pure but functionally compromised laptop.

As open as possible, for better or for worse

The XPS 13 (top) and the MNT Reform (bottom, obviously) seem to come from entirely different universes, and in a way they are.

Andrew Cunningham

We’ll talk about the Reform as an actual physical object in a minute, but to understand why it is, it helps to understand the mindset of the people who designed it. For them, the Reform’s lack of a microphone and webcam is a selling point when it comes to privacy. Its weak ARM Cortex-A53-based processor was chosen because it was “simpler” and “much easier to understand than conventional laptops”.

From the time I spent browsing MNT Community Forums, it’s fair to say that this is the branch of the open source community that is inherently skeptical of things like TPMs, Intel’s management engine, or Apple’s T2 chip – these are , according to thought, impenetrable black boxes, the opposite of selling points. You can’t verify that they do what they say they do because the source code isn’t publicly available, and they could contain security holes at best or intentional security backdoors at worst.

I bring all this up not to mock or dismiss these concerns (or to validate them, for that matter) but to demonstrate how different the concerns of the target audience of the MNT reform are those of the general public buying computers.

Here are the questions I would normally consider when reviewing a laptop: How fast is it? Is it noisy? Is it too heavy? How does the keyboard feel? Is the screen good? What is the battery life? I can also judge the Reform on these criteria! But all my comments should be filtered through the self-imposed limitations of the reformist project and the priorities of the people who funded it.

At the same time, it’s not a $35 Raspberry Pi board – it doesn’t take advantage of being so cheap that its quirks and flaws are forgivable. The base Reform model (which, as of today, will ship in late April 2022) is a $1,299 DIY kit that you have to assemble entirely yourself and to which you will have to add a $59 trackpad or trackball module. A fully assembled Reform costs $1,550 plus shipping, which is almost $200 more. Neither version includes a Wi-Fi module, antenna or internal SSD.

To MNT’s credit, the assembly process is fully documented (PDF), and you can do the whole thing with a small Phillips screwdriver. Our review unit was pre-assembled, but the process seems simple enough that anyone interested in reforming will likely have the wherewithal to set it up.

But that’s still the same price as a really nice high-end MacBook or PC laptop (or a mostly OK pair of PC laptops). This type of price comparison somehow misses the point of the reform, which is to be as open and transparent as possible and not to replace an XPS 13 or MacBook Air. But even hardcore FOSS supporters should pause and think about what they need a computer to be able to do before they spend a thousand and a half on this thing.

Netflix’s chief executive played down any aggressive shifts to more interactive content or the Metaverse during an earnings call on Jan. 20, saying it wouldn’t be in anything “for the sake of a press release.” The company, which saw $50 billion wiped from its stock price after missing fourth-quarter subscription growth projections, appears poised to face tough questions about new monetization options amid competition from increasingly intense when it comes to streaming.

A nascent shift to more interactive forms of media is already putting pressure on the company’s complex cloud-native data platform, which is heavily based on open-source software like Apache Druid, Apache Flink, Apache Iceberg and Apache Kafka. – with the company’s engineers. recently revealed the development of an innovative new tool that they use to detect and manage failing workloads in production environments.

In 2021, Netflix launched a mobile game streaming service and now offers 10 games.

But asked about “how much” Netflix executives want to push harder in mobile gaming, the metaverse, or more interactive experiences, co-CEO Ted Sarandos said, “We have to be different in this area.

There’s no point in just being in it. It’s very dilutive of the whole proposal,” he said on an earnings call. “When [our] mobile gaming is the world leader… and we are at [where we are at with] movie today, two of the top 10 for our games, so you might be asking, ‘OK, what’s next’. Because we are definitely “crawl, walk, run”.

His response came as Netflix engineers revealed they were working on a “self-diagnosis and correction system” called Pensive for what they described as one of “the most more complex in the cloud on which our data scientists and engineers run batch and stream workloads” – noting that as Netflix enters the world of gaming, pressure on its batch workflows and its real-time data pipelines are growing rapidly

“The data platform is built on multiple distributed systems, and due to the inherent nature of these systems, it is inevitable that these workloads will periodically experience outages” engineers Vikram Srivastava and Marcelo Mayworm noted in a January 14 blog post.

Netflix has always been refreshingly open about its underlying digital infrastructure – and has been a major contributor to open source, releasing tools spanning runtime containers, libraries, and services that power microservices, cybersecurity tools like security monkeyand Distributed Big Data Orchestration Service genius.

“At our scale,” the two engineers noted in their blog, “even a tiny percentage of downed workloads can generate a substantial operational support load for the data platform team when troubleshooting involves steps manual. And we can’t ignore the productivity impact this has on users of the data platform. (To contextualize this scale: Netflix streams media and a custom interface to stream it to over 221 million subscribers worldwide.)

Their team created a tool called “Pensive” that supports self-diagnosis and troubleshooting on Netflix’s batch and streaming workloads. For batch workflows, for example, the tool collects failed job logs and then pulls stack traces. As they detailed: “Pensive relies on a regular expression-based rules engine that has been curated over time. Rules encode information indicating whether an error is due to a platform problem or a user bug and whether the error is transient or not. (If unstable, the scheduler retries the step.)

What Netflix is ​​doing now is feeding unknown errors into a machine-learning process that can come up with new regular expressions for common errors, the two said, admitting it’s work in progress: with the classification of the error source and if it is transient in nature. In the future, we are looking to automate this process.

Real-time stream processing tasks in the Netflix Data Platform are supported by Apache Flink.

“Most Flink jobs run under a managed platform called keystonewhich summarizes the details of the underlying Flink job and allows users to consume data from Apache Kafka feeds and publish it to different data stores like Elasticsearch and Apache Iceberg on AWS S3″ the blog notes.

Pensive uses Kafka and the Apache Druid real-time analysis database to identify streaming errors that can usually be diagnosed fairly quickly once isolated. Once the individual diagnoses are stored in a Druid table, our monitoring and alerting system called Atlas performs aggregations every minute and sends alerts when there is a sudden increase in the number of failures due to platform errors. This has led to a dramatic reduction in the time needed to detect hardware issues or bugs in recently deployed data platform software,” they noted.

The Top 10 Apache Projects in 2021, from Superset, to NuttX and Pulsar

The team wants to extend Pensive’s reach beyond failed jobs and optimize it to determine why jobs have become slow, they said. (We’ll keep an eye out for any future open source of what could be an extremely useful tool.) They also want to refine it so they can “automatically configure batch workflows to complete successfully or become more fast and use fewer resources when possible. An example where this can significantly help is Spark jobs, where memory tuning is a big challenge. View their full article here.

the last quarter brought Netflix to a total of 221.8 million subscribers, but growth is slowing sharply: in 2020, it added 37 million new subscribers; in 2021 half of that, 18 million, under pressure from Amazon Prime, HULU, Apple TV, Disney+, Youtube TV and other streaming rivals. Net profit for Netflix was $607,000 for the quarter.

Beijing unveils five-year plan to develop software industry • The Register https://mobogenie-apk.org/beijing-unveils-five-year-plan-to-develop-software-industry-the-register/ Wed, 01 Dec 2021 06:57:00 +0000 https://mobogenie-apk.org/beijing-unveils-five-year-plan-to-develop-software-industry-the-register/ China’s software industry is underperforming internationally and needs to rely on open source technology to improve, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) said on Tuesday. . “Software is the soul of a new generation of information technology, the foundation of digital economic development and the key medium for building manufacturing power, network power […]]]>


China’s software industry is underperforming internationally and needs to rely on open source technology to improve, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) said on Tuesday. .

“Software is the soul of a new generation of information technology, the foundation of digital economic development and the key medium for building manufacturing power, network power and digital China,” according to an announcement (machine translated) from the ministry. .

The document boasts that great strides have been made in China’s software industry under the 13th Five-Year Plan, which ran from 2016 to 2020, but it is also critical of the state of current software. China.

MIIT said China has a fragile software supply chain, lacks depth in local applications, and simply does not value software or intellectual property.

A lack of qualified developers is a symptom and a cause of these problems.

The ministry is also concerned about international competitiveness and suggests more in-depth international exchanges and open cooperation for China to improve its software prowess to achieve a par with global players.

Among the plans to improve the state of local software, there is a call to develop an “emerging area of ​​software products with ecological influence by 2025”, some of which are being developed in one of the 20 new parks of Chinese software.

China also wants to build “two or three open source communities with international influence.”

The global plan places importance on local open source software, describing the trend of companies to embrace collaborative technology as “obvious” and admitting that “the construction of open source ecology in China is still in its infancy.”

MIIT cites a lack of open source foundations, insufficient control over the underlying technology, a weak open source culture, and a need for political support as constraints on China’s free software leadership.

The paper becomes lyrical about the virtues of open source software, ultimately sharing the quote that “software defines the world of the future, open source determines the future of software.”

China believes it can level up. “With an average annual growth rate of over 12%, the industrial structure is more optimized and the overall strength has reached a new level,” argued MIIT.

The Middle Kingdom currently has an open source foundation: the Open Atom Open Source Foundation. It works on FOSS hardware, silicon and content. The organization also helps open source projects manage their intellectual property and prevent copyright litigation, and helps find funding for open source efforts.

Huawei recently donated its EulerOS – a version of Linux – to Open Atom.

No doubt as a token of gratitude for its efforts, Huawei was cited in the MIIT document – described as a “famous product” that “stands out” as its “international influence continues to grow.” Huawei is the only company named by name in the document, and there is no mention of its international influence being hampered by US sanctions.

The 14th Five-Year Plan for Software Development and Computer Services was not the only plan announced yesterday. The ministry also released a similar plan on its big data industry. China plans to triple the size of its big data industry over the next five years and calls for a focus on the technology required to do so while ensuring the security of national data. ®

Analysis The Linux Flatpak cross-platform packaging format has been in the spotlight this week, with the “fundamental issues inherent in [its] design ”criticized in a scolded article by Canadian software developer Nicholas Fraser.

Fraser wrote in a blog post on November 23 that “this is not the future of desktop Linux applications,” citing a litany of technical, security and usability issues. His claims about disk usage and the sharing of runtime between applications were hotly contested by Will Thompson, director of operating systems at Endless OS Foundation a day later in an article titled: “On the Flatpak disk usage and deduplication ”, but there’s no denying that it’s horribly inefficient.

Most people don’t care anymore, you might say. But they should.

The Linux world has been trying to invent a cross-platform packaging format for years, but the main competitors – the older, older, vendor-independent AppImage format, as well as Ubuntu’s Snap and Fedora’s Flatpak – are all getting serious. problems.

They might be groundbreaking and mean Linux is getting easier to develop, but it’s already complicated enough that some mainstream distros are avoiding all of that.

By comparison, installing software in Windows is straightforward. Download an installer, run it, and you have a new app. The downsides are that it means trusting binaries unknown to the internet – and that it teaches Windows users that this is fine and a perfectly normal thing to do.

Simple Win32 programs have unlimited access to your computer. This is why Microsoft invented the Windows Store: it would only contain safe, verified, approved, “modern” applications written in “managed code”. (And sure enough, Microsoft was able to keep a share of the revenue.)

The plan encountered some glitches, and in the end, Win32 apps were allowed as well.

How about them Apples

It’s not unfair to say that everyone is trying to catch up with Apple. Not the App Store – it’s must-have (and extremely lucrative) on iOS, but you can pretty much skip it on a Mac, if you want to. No, the target is macOS .app app bundles, which macOS inherited from its 1989 ancestor NeXTstep – though they usually come in classic MacOS style .dmg disk image file.

Apps on macOS are a specially structured folder, containing all of the program’s supporting “resources” and binaries for as many processor architectures as the app creator supports. It works pretty well, but not without a hitch. For example, there is no comprehensive way to update all of your apps (unless you got them from the App Store). Apps tend to be big, but that’s okay because if you can afford Macs, you can afford a big drive and fast broadband, right?

Ironically, Linux could easily have had much the same thing as all the functionality already exists in GNUstep, the venerable FOSS rewrite of NeXTstep’s core libraries. Unfortunately, no mainstream Linux uses the GNUstep desktop, and the Star project to modernize it and make it a little more Mac is dying. The basic, superficially-like Mac operating system would have been richer and more capable if its developers had started from Star or GNUstep, but they didn’t – it’s just a facelift for GNOME 3, like Mint’s Cinnamon and Zorin OS.

Many of the developers behind Flatpak are from the GNOME and Fedora communities, or their corporate sponsor Red Hat, but this is a desktop independent effort and is installed by default on some Debian and Ubuntu derivatives. It uses Red Hat technologies such as OStree to handle binaries in the same way as Git.

Somewhere deep inside your operating system is a complex directory tree filled with your Flatpak apps and all their dependencies, as opposed to a prominent place you can interact with, like on macOS or GNUstep.

Rather than a macOS-style directory filled with files, Ubuntu’s Snap format compresses an application and all of its dependencies into a single, compressed SquashFS file, which is looped during system startup.

Flatpak and Snap have a lot in common. Both keep your apps inside /var/lib (although Snap makes them visible to /snaps, and Flatpak will allow you to install in your home directory if you prefer). Both require the installation of a support framework. Both do some degree of app sandboxing, but aren’t as sure as their advertisements might lead you to believe. Both do things like run automatic, silent updates in the background, in a very Windows way – bad news if you’re using a limited connection. It also means that if you update your operating system with a shell command, these apps will not be included.

The AppImage format has similar advantages and disadvantages to macOS app bundles, such as the lack of a global update mechanism, as it was born out of technology of a similar age. The AppImage developer took the AppDirs from ROX Desktop and put them in a SquashFS (which probably inspired the developers of Snap). ROX and AppDir are FOSS recreations of Acorn’s RISC operating system, which appeared slightly before NeXTstep in 1987. It doesn’t require any supporting framework and you can keep your AppImages anywhere you want.

All three share a weakness in that they include almost all of an app’s supporting libraries and other dependencies in its package, so the packages tend to be very large – on the order of hundreds of megabytes. – just like updates. Installing large Linux apps from the command line usually takes anywhere from a few seconds to tens of seconds, but installing a Snap or Flatpak, even over a fast connection, can take several minutes – and of course ignores any local mirrors you have configured for your distro’s built-in package manager.

Thompson of Endless makes a good point, however. The Flatpak format allows something that single file formats cannot: if the files in different Flatpaks are identical, OStree can reduce duplication by linking them together … although in principle a sufficiently intelligent file system can. do the same at the block level.

And after?

There are alternative cross-distribution systems. Many avoid installing applications into the operating system at all and simply grab them from the Internet into your home directory when needed. Examples include 0install, from the developer of the ROX desktop. This inspired AppFS – which does something similar to the independent CernVM-FS from CERN. And then there are functional package managers, which are a whole different kind of software management tool that we’ll get to in another article. Suffice it to say that there are several vendor independent ways of distributing Linux software that precede the Big Three. All of them are lighter, more efficient, the packages are generally much smaller, and all of them are seriously obscure and you will never come across them in a mainstream distribution.

Of course, because of the uninvented syndrome here endemic to the Linux industry, all of these systems are totally ignoring each other. This at least has the advantage of being able to install most of them side by side on the same operating system and try them out, without any real penalty, except using a lot of disk space. But at least it’s cheap these days.

There are so many alternatives vying for the space that it’s hard to pick winners. This is partly because competitors are building their own tools rather than cooperating, and partly because there is almost no money to be made with desktop Linux, only servers – so there is little investment and the sometimes sketchy prototypes of engineers end up being shipped.

What seems likely is that the lean, efficient but daringly unconventional technology will go nowhere, while the inefficient and space-hungry variants will be heavily pushed and widely used.

However, AppImage probably won’t get much bigger, as there isn’t a big company behind it. Ubuntu’s Snap system has some advantages over GNOME’s Flatpak, such as being useful on servers, etc. but Ubuntu runs the only Snap Store and the only open source backend is obsolete and has been removed.

In contrast, Flatpak, by its own admission, is a desktop tool – but anyone can host their own repositories, and several already exist.

With the considerable influence of Red Hat, the chances of Flatpak look good. But whoever wins, over time we will probably have to get used to distributions taking up terabytes of disk and needing hundreds of gigs of regular updates … and memories of the small, efficient systems before will be lost in the story. Isn’t progress great? ®

When you think of business or government computing, Windows and Microsoft Office are usually the de facto benchmark. But that is no longer the case for the German state of Schleswig-Holstein, which plans to convert its machines from the public sector to the Linux and Free side of the force by 2026.

This change will involve around 25,000 PCs in total, as reported by the Document Foundation (additional figures can be found in the Schleswig-Holstein plan documentation [via Heise]). The idea behind the change is that free and open source software should come first. An advantage of moving to Linux and Libre should be to save money on licensing costs, although there are expense complications to consider in terms of the migration itself and the costs of the. operational infrastructure when conducting state business through Linux and other open source software.

The rise of cloud solutions is one of the reasons why this open source program can succeed where previous German attempts have failed. The most notable previous attempt was the LiMux plan which aimed to convert Munich into open source software. This plan fell apart for various reasons, with some claiming it was due to software conflicts caused by Linux (via Ars Technica). There is more to the LiMux saga; it’s a bit of a rabbit hole that includes corporate scratching accusations. But at least on the surface, the reasons for Munich’s move to Windows are straightforward.

Time will tell if the Schleswig-Holstein initiative ends in the same way. For now, goodbye Windows 10 and Windows 11, and hello Tux.

Trump’s social media platform faces abusive code allegations https://mobogenie-apk.org/trumps-social-media-platform-faces-abusive-code-allegations/ Wed, 03 Nov 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://mobogenie-apk.org/trumps-social-media-platform-faces-abusive-code-allegations/ The leading social media site Mastodon posted Truth Social, former President Donald Trump’s social media platform, a 30-day warning regarding allegations that he abused the Mastodon code.

The leading social media site Mastodon posted Truth Social, former President Donald Trump’s social media platform, a 30-day warning regarding allegations that he abused the Mastodon code.

Mastodon is free and open source software that allows individuals to host their own social networks. It has been described as a “micro-blogging” platform, with some similarities to Twitter.

According to Mastodon founder Eugen Rochko in an open letter posted to his site, TRUTH Social appears to be claiming Mastodon’s open source code as its own, without credit.

Although TRUTH Social has not yet officially launched, some users have been able to access the site and create accounts.

As pointed out ReviewGeek, the platform was compromised almost immediately after its announcement. A number of users were able to access a beta version of TRUTH Social, with reporter Mikael Thalen creating an account with the handle @donaldtrump.

These are the first users who noticed that TRUTH Social uses the Mastodon code.

Rochko’s statement says, “It appears that the new social media platform owned by former United States President Donald J. Trump known as Truth Social uses Mastodon’s source code with various visual tweaks.

Mastodon is primarily concerned with a passage in the terms of use of TRUTH Social, which claims that its source code and software are owned and controlled by the platform, or licensed, and not to Mastodon.

Specifically, the Terms of Service read as follows: “Unless otherwise stated, the site is our exclusive property and all source codes, databases, features, software, web designs, audio, video, text, photographs and graphics on the Site (collectively, the “Content”) and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein (the “Marks”) are our property or under our control or under license, and are protected by copyright and trademark laws and various other intellectual property rights and unfair competition laws. of the United States, foreign jurisdictions and international conventions.

Rochko’s statement points out that, “notably, neither the terms nor any other part of the website contained any references to Mastodon, nor any links to the source code, which are present by default in the Mastodon user interface.”

“Mastodon is free software released under the AGPLv3 license, which requires any service on the network to use it to make its source code and all of its modifications publicly available. “

According to Rochko, Mastodon sent an official letter to the legal director of TRUTH Social on October 26, requesting that the source code be made public, in accordance with the license.

The AGPLv3 (GNU Affero General Public License) requires that within 30 days, TRUTH Social either complies or risks having its license revoked permanently.

The nonprofit, the Software Freedom Conservancy, which enforces software licenses like these, said TRUTH Social must comply with the license :, or even a former POTUS ”

Before sending the letter, Rochko said Vice motherboard that “from the screenshots I saw, [TRUTH Social] is absolutely based on Mastodon.

According to Rochko, as stated in the Vice article, a screenshot of an error message on TRUTH Social used the default Mastodon, an elephant icon.

Former President Donald Trump’s social networking site, which has yet to launch, could have its software license revoked in 30 days if it does not make its source code public, Mastodon warned in a blog post Friday.

Trump announced his new social media site, Truth Social, last week, touting the platform as a new beacon of free expression online. Truth Social’s terms of service state that “all” of its source code is its “sole property,” but users quickly noticed that the site was clearly using Mastodon code.

Mastodon is an open source social media framework that aims to empower people to build online platforms without relying on big tech. However, its AGPLv3 license requires users to make the source code and any modifications public. In Friday’s blog post, Mastodon founder Eugen Rochko said his company warned Truth Social that its license could be permanently revoked within a month if it failed to meet this requirement.

“On October 26, we sent an official letter to the General Counsel of Truth Social, requesting that the source code be made public in accordance with the license. According to AGPLv3, after being notified by the copyright holder, Truth Social has 30 days to comply or the license can be revoked permanently, ”Rochko wrote.

Coding firm Mastodon demanded that Donald Trump’s Truth Social network make its source code public. Above, former President Trump leaves the Trump Tower in Manhattan on October 18, 2021, in New York City.

The founder also said he and his company were unhappy that Trump’s new platform used their code.

“When it comes to personal feelings, of course, we would prefer that people so antithetical to our values ​​not use and benefit from our work, but the reality of working on free software is that you give up the possibility. to choose who can and can’t use it up front, so in a practical sense the only problem we can have with something like Truth Social is if they don’t even comply with the free software license under which we publish our work, ”he wrote.

Truth Social is the first project of the brand new Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG). It aims to be an alternative to traditional social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, which banned Trump following his supporters’ attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan.6.

Social Truth
Former President Donald Trump has said Truth Social is “just the beginning” of what his new media group will do. Above is a screenshot of the Truth Social main page captured on October 29, 2021.

Rochko shared a copy of Mastodon’s letter to Truth Social’s attorney with Motherboard, who released an excerpt from it on Friday.

“Based on public reports, we understand that Truth Social used Mastodon’s source code to develop its platform and that users were able to connect to the platform through a network. Accordingly, under the AGPL, Truth Social is required to make its full source code available. . We ask Truth Social to comply with this important license condition, “the letter said.” If you have any questions regarding Mastodon or the AGPL, please do not hesitate to contact us, “he continued.

News week has contacted Trump’s press office and TMTG press representatives for comment.

In a lengthy statement released earlier this week on the TMTG website, Trump said Truth Social is “just the beginning” of what the new company will do. The former president complained that “censorship” was a major problem on sites like Facebook and Twitter. He said he decided to launch the site because he “realized” that he “was perhaps the only person in America with the megaphone, the resources, the experience and the desire to make it so. let all of this happen “.

Although Trump and many Republicans claim that Facebook and Twitter censor and suppress conservative voices on their platforms, the data actually shows that right-wing content is more popular than left-wing content. Some conservatives, like Trump, have been banned from sites after repeated violations of their terms of service.

Several other similar sites – promoting themselves as opposed to censoring themselves – have been launched with some success. These include Parler, Gettr, and Gab, but none have yet grown enough to compete with the big social media giants.
