Valuable News – 2020/03/30

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).

    Dystrybucja TrueOS zakończyła działalność, ona z tego co pamiętam bazowała na PC-BSD. Co to zmienia w społeczności BSD? Developerzy TrueOS będą teraz wspierać trzy główne systemy BSD?

      Najpierw bylo PC-BSD ktore potem zmienilo nazwe na TrueOS. Zarowno PC-BSD jak i TrueOS bazowaly caly czas na FreeBSD. Sa duzo lepsze i bardziej dopracowane systemy niz PC-BSD/TrueOS jak na przyklad GhostBSD i NomadBSD. Robia to samo czyli biora FreeBSD i dokladaja do tego srodowisko graficzne. Developerzy TrueOS robili tez Project Trident ktory zmienil baze z FreeBSD na Void Linux. Nie wiem czy zostaja w ekosystemie FreeBSD czy pojda w Linux.

    O tym, że tworzyli też Project Trident to szczerze powiedziawszy nie wiedziałem. Czy to nie oni wspierają też KDE 3.5 w wersji Trinity czyli TDE? GhostBSD kiedyś używałem, ale nie lubię środowiska graficznego MATE. Zastanawiam się nad FuryBSD i tym niemieckim Nomadem. Uczę się programować w Rust, chodzą słuchy, że za jakiś czas wszystko będą przepisywać z C/C++ na niego. Może kiedyś jakoś się przydam społeczności open source. Kto wie, może za jakiś czas powstanie jakaś biblioteka graficzna na wzór QT w Rust i ktoś stworzy w niej nowe bezpieczne środowisko graficzne. Jest niby azul https://azul.rs/
