Python is growing up, you know that because tools are getting better 

Microsoft, a company that have their very own tools  and programming languages is now making it easier for developers to use their favorite language. This time Python have better support in the Visual Studio Code, more specifically in the IntelliSense autocomplete System. Visual Studio Code is the source code editor that Microsoft released as Open Source and is available in Linux, Windows and MacOS. and thanks to the Python Language Server now have better support for Python. I mean, Python support has been there for a while, but is greatly improved by the PLS. Do you use Python or Visual Studio?, leave your thoughts in the comment section.

GIMP now hosted by GNOME on GitLab

Many projects are now migrating from github to #GitLab, this is not because GitHub is a bad service, it’s just because its being acquired by Microsoft. Even when the official statement says that GitHub will operate independent and with the same policies used right now, many (me included) don’t trust Microsoft. then.. the need to move away from GitHub. GNOME already made the transition and GIMP is now in GitLab. Are you moving your projects?. Do you think GitHub will finish like Skype did?.  

Just yesterday, we shared that The GNOME Project moved to GitLab. This was a major score for GitLab, but also, an important move for GNOME as well — it should greatly improve collaboration between its contributors. GNOME is not alone in its move to that Git-repository manager, however, as GIMP (plus the babl and GEGL libraries) also made the transition. Actually, believe it or not, GNOME is hosting GIMP there. read more

AF_UNIX comes to Windows – Windows Command Line Tools For Developers

Short story… Microsoft have this NEED to support Linux because of the “cloud” infrastructure it have. A big chunk of azure instances run Linux instead of Windows and they are porting Linux/Unix tools to Windows (eg. Bash for Windows, etc.) to keep Windows relevant in this field. So, Microsoft Developers are having a pain in the ass doing this ports because Windows doesn’t support AF_UNIX sockets, BSD and Linux have long time supporting them; and even when Microsoft have something kind of similar called “pipes” there are differences that make really hard to do such ports. Remember fellas, is not that Microsoft is Loving Linux, they are embracing, you know what’s next. Of course they are in the right to do such thing… but is your call to use Windows, a closed source operating system, or just keep using your favorite Linux distribution.   Source: AF_UNIX comes to Windows – Windows Command Line Tools For Developers

Are there problems with the surface laptop?

  I think the major problem with the surface laptop is the fact that the price does not match the target audience, I mean, the main purpose is students and $999 for an entry laptop is not something for a student. Also, for $999 you can get a better laptop that lets you run your favorite Browser, open apps that you downloaded from the Internet and configure the way you like it. Now, this thing runs windows, let’s use another version of windows 10… well, you have to pay for the license then, I mean, pay more for something that you can get with a cheaper laptop.

So, bash in Windows 10

What can I say?, Microsoft finally accepted that they needed it to be “serious” about servers. I personally hope I won’t ever have to deal with using a server running Windows, not even if it runs bash, although if it is done fine the common “usage” for the user will be fine. I think the problems will come with the underlying platform, I mean Windows by itself, the kernel, the system calls, and the way it handle processes etc.. The surprise… Canonical, the fucking SOLD to Microsoft. My conspiranoic side already had these ideas that Ubuntu and its “convergence” stuff were nothing but the playground to what now is Microsoft Windows 10 Continuum, the scopes, and everything else might be that thing too. Canonical working with Microsoft is nothing new, they have been working with Microsoft for years to make Ubuntu run as smooth as possible in the Azure framework. But I really think that Canonical is giving itself a shoot in the foot by making Bash to work nice in Windows. I don’t expect it to run as good as it already does in Linux, bash is good but bash is a shell with a subset of commands (and other programs) but is not Linux.

Microsoft Windows 10

image Microsoft presented a sneak peak of what Windows 10 well be  to be honest I think this is the refinement to Windows 8 that was required. I personally find Windows as a desktop operating system pretty good, something that is in most of the ordinal computers in the world has to have something good. Since Windows 7 I found it pretty useful, with Windows 8 the main drawback was the lack of the start menu but with windows 10 I see that those rough corners in 8 are gone.
