Valuable News – 2020/03/02

The Valuable News weekly series is dedicated to provide summary about news, articles and other interesting stuff mostly but not always related to the UNIX or BSD systems. Whenever I stumble upon something worth mentioning on the Internet I just put it here.

Today the amount information that we get using various information streams is at massive overload. Thus one needs to focus only on what is important without the need to grep(1) the Internet everyday. Hence the idea of providing such information ‘bulk’ as I already do that grep(1).

      Openbox jest maly prosty i napisany w C, co prawda troche ficzerow ma ale raczej bezpieczny powinien byc, w sumie ja niekojarze zadnej luki bezpieczenstwa z przeszlosci z nim zwiazanej. Najbezpieczniejsze beda oczywiscie te najmniejsze czyli TinyWM oraz DWM …

      Kod Wayland jest dosc nowy, dosc szybko go przybylo i dosc szybko przyrasta. To powoduje ze pewnie bedzie mial (zwlaszcza na poczatku swojego zycia) wiecej bug’ow. X11 jest ‘z nami’ juz dekady wiec zdazyli juz go przejrzec pod katem bezpieczenstwa w lewo i w prawo … a pare dziur tez mial.

    Gdyby na FreeBSD dziaล‚aล‚ Sway to bym go przetestowaล‚. Menadลผery okien sฤ… maล‚e to sฤ… bezpieczniejsze niลผ te rozbudowane kombajny takie jak KDE i Gnome. Ciekawe dlaczego nie powstaล‚ ลผaden menadลผer okien lub lekkie ล›rodowisko graficzne w Rust, ponoฤ‡ ten jฤ™zyk programowania jest duลผo bezpieczniejszy niลผ C/C++. Moลผe problem leลผy w tym ลผe nie ma pod niego biblioteki graficznej QT lub GTK?
