How to Get Available Filesystem Space on Linux: a C Function with a C++ Example
Monday, August 31, 2015 @ 10:35:38 UTC by lbadmin (15678 reads)
Softwareericzma writes
How to Get Available Filesystem Space on Linux: a C Function with a C++ Example: It is common for programs to write to files in filesystems on disks. However, what if the disk was almost full when your program writes to the filesystem on a disk? For systems software and mission critical programs, it is a better or must-to-do practice to check the available filesystem space before actually writing to files. On POSIX OSes, we have the statvfs POSIX API to get filesystem statistics (On Linux, you may use the Linux specific statfs, but POSIX APIs are better for portability). In this post, we will introduce a C function and a C++ example to use the statvfs API to get the available filesystem space.

RationalPlan Single becomes free on Linux:

Starting with version 4.7 RationalPlan Single is distributed as freeware under all Linux operating systems. RationalPlan is a project management suite that puts the accent on productivity, ease of use and fast learning. The Single version can be seen as an alternative to Microsoft Project and the perfect solution for novice or accidental project managers.

RationalPlan products work on all major operating systems including Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. This is a major advantage as it offers cross platform compatibility. Linux platform was the last one that was adopted and presents the best integration with Ubuntu distributions (the products are even listed under the Ubuntu Apps Directory). Even more the company decided to offer the Single version as freeware on Linux. This decision is aiming to help the educational environment (students, teachers) and non-profit organizations.

LibreOffice VS Openoffice
Tuesday, February 15, 2011 @ 21:09:32 UTC by lbadmin (5566 reads)
Softwaredonadony writes
When a group of German coders at OpenOffice (belonging to database major, Oracle) finally forked away on Sept28th 2010 there was much for everybody to talk about while Oracle OpenOffice maintained dignified silence. The tussle between a David and Goliath has always been fascinating to watch and the breaking away and regeneration of the minnow LibreOffice against the giant OpenOffice has all the makings of a great epic! Both LibreOffice and OpenOffice released their 3.3 versions in the last week of January 2011 and thus began the bout between LibreOffice Vs OpenOffice Complete Story

How Should OpenOffice.org Fix Itself?
Wednesday, September 29, 2010 @ 15:47:10 UTC by tw45admin (1021 reads)
SoftwareOpenOffice.org has established itself as the free alternative to Microsoft's Office suite—but not necessarily the better alternative. Now the project heads are breaking off and starting LibreOffice. It's a great chance to remake the project. So, what should they prioritize? The consensus among commenters, here at Lifehacker and elsewhere, is that OpenOffice.org's suite of tools get the job done for those who just need to write, throw together a basic spreadsheet, or put together a presentation. Beyond that, there are compatibility issues with Microsoft Office's features, a fairly dated-looking interface, and individual headaches involving all of the project's little nooks and corners.

The real value of FOSS to business – A personal example
Thursday, April 22, 2010 @ 21:43:27 UTC by tw45admin (1060 reads)
Softwaretetris4 writes
"I contacted my provider to report the bug but unfortunately they could do nothing about it. Not soon enough at least. So it was up to me to fix the problem. Luckily the particular library is very well written so I was able to modify it in order to handle the malformed package.

"But what would happen if I did not have access to the source code? I would be stuck. Clearly the problem was not with the library and the vendor would have refused to make any changes as the library did not have any problems. Even if the vendor agreed to make the changes it would have been at a very high price. My provider would not fix the problem for years to come and changing my provider is not an option."

Jon 'maddog' Hall's Picks for Today's Six Best OSS Projects
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 @ 21:36:26 UTC by tw45admin (1082 reads)
SoftwareYou would think that writing a blog entry on “Hot New OSS Projects” would not be that difficult. All you should have to do is go to SourceForge or Freshmeat and see what projects are being downloaded, or at least accessed, and write about them. Or, hangout on Slashdot or LinuxDevices.com and see what cool things are being shown and talked about. These days you can even read the mainstream media about Linux products and projects. And of course there is the Linux.com site with its news feeds, discussion groups and projects. All of these would have been “too easy” for maddog, so of course he had to do the unthinkable and ask his eclectic group of Linux User Group (LUG) members what they thought were “Hot, New OSS Projects.”

What do you mean by OSS project? The answer is at Linux.com.
