Linux !! It’s on the mouth of most IT guys these days – or for long we can say. Some know about them and use them, some only know about them and some simply just ignore its existence. Linux Version 3.18 has been recently released and on the occasion, I decided to have a little chat with somebody close or deep into Linux; Logan – An Official Linux Kernel developer with whom I conducted an interview recently and also talked about some IPv6 issues for my home country, Mauritius. Following is a little of what we talked. Feel free to add your own views and thoughts (even beliefs 😛 ) in the comments.
Open Source systems and the community running behind these have always been something interesting to dive in. As part of paving my path in those communities, I decided to have a word with one of the Open Source Developers in my Home Country namely Loganden Velvindron, Logan; a friend of mine – even if we met in person only once during a workshop on the MariaDB Database Management System. Views expressed in this ‘mini-interview’ represent the views of Logan only. Other mini-interviews similar to this one will follow. 🙂
Some years back, sharing documents meant sending Microsoft Word’s .doc files through email. But, unless protected by a read-only lock, the document can be edited by anyone and the original author details can be faked. Also, Microsoft Word .doc files sometimes had large file sizes. Users also suffered from macros hidden inside the files too. — Then came .pdf files. Students, lecturers, marketers, authors, etc are now using them for their end-of-chain document users. Reading pdf file does not need any Geek knowledge or rocket science certificate, but creating them is a nightmare for many of the inhabitants of the web. Here is a quick, easy and free way to create .pdf files.
