Couple of days ago, there was a huge debate (argument ?) ย between Matt Mullenweg ย - developer of WordPress and Chris Pearson - developer of Thesis premium theme over twitter which then extended to Mixergy.

Crux of the argument is the disagreement amognst the two over the licensing terms. Matt believes that Thesis should adopt GPL{#aptureLink_Q1kNtLltNY} which as Wikipedia states:

The GPL is an example of a powerfulย copyleft license that requires derived works to be available under the same copyleft.

Chris, on the otherhand disagrees with this. The full transcript of their discussion is available on Mixergy, here are some quotes which I found interesting:


[How-to] Make nVidia settings persistent and retain the settings in Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala

Nvidia Proprietary Drivers need nvidia-settings to set screen resolution and change other settings. In previous versions of Ubuntu and in other distros to make them permanent (used in every session) you click the “Save to X configuration file”. From Karmic on there is no xorg.conf by default!

Amarok 2.1 is out & Installing Amarok 2.1 on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty

I was catching up on some feeds yesterday, and this piece of news caught my eye -Amarok 2.1 released{#aptureLink_chgCx0N0sk}. Being a long time Amarok fan ( heck Amarok itself was catalyst to make me use my SUSE 10.0 use full) time - I read the article with great interest.

Amarok 2 users would know that Amarok 2 series is a shadow of its old Amarok 1.4(“Amarok Classic” self) - and quite a few people still prefer Amarok classic to Amarok 2 - primararily because of Amarok’s missing support for visualizations, equalizer amongst others. I don’t use equalizers - and as for visualization - well don’t use that either.
