WordPress creator slams Wix: ‘Your app editor is built with stolen code’

WordPress creator Matt Mullenweg has taken exception to the editor used in Wix’s mobile app, alleging that the do-it-yourself web building service has copied his platform’s editor and failed to give proper attribution and adhere to the general public license (GPL) — basically open source your work.
“If I were being honest, I’d say that Wix copied WordPress without attribution, credit, or following the license. The custom icons, the class names, even the bugs. You can see the forked repositories on GitHub complete with original commits from Alex and Maxime, two developers on Automattic’s mobile team,” he wrote in a blog post. “Wix has always borrowed liberally from WordPress — including their company name, which used to be Wixpress Ltd. — but this blatant rip-off and code theft is beyond anything I’ve seen before from a competitor.”
At the center of this controversy is the Wix app which was released earlier this month

Archive.org Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary

20 years ago this week, Archive.org started with just 500,000 sites. An anonymous reader quotes the San Francisco Chronicle:

Now, the nonprofit San Francisco organization — which celebrated the milestone with a party Wednesday night — curates a vast digital archive that includes more than 370 million websites and 273 billion pages, many captured before they disappeared forever. It’s more than an archive of Internet sites. The organization, founded by computer scientist and entrepreneur Brewster Kahle, now has a virtual storehouse ranging from digitally converted books and historic film to funny memes and audio recordings of Grateful Dead concerts…

The Internet Archive has survived through community donations and by working with about 1,000 libraries around the world that pay the group to help digitize books and other material. But the site itself remains free.
We’ve written about Archive.org over the years, and its collection of 2,400 DOS games, over 10,000 Amiga

Linux Marketshare is Above 2-Percent For Third Month in a Row

For the third month in a row the share of worldwide desktop computer users running Linux has been above two percent — up from one percent — according to data from web analytics company Net Market Share. From a OMGUbuntu report: We reported back in July that Linux marketshare had passed two percent for the first time, and that figure remains the highest they’ve ever reported for Linux, at 2.33 percent. But the share for September 2016 was almost as good at 2.23 percent. It’s the third consecutive month that Linux marketshare has been above 2 percent. Those of us who use Linux as our primary desktop computing platform can take a degree of pride in these figures. They do show a clear trend towards Linux, rather than away from it. But we should also remember that statistics, numbers and reporting methods vary between analytics companies and that all figures,

Running containers without Docker

Right now at work, my team’s job is basically to be Heroku for the rest of the
company – we want it to be really easy for developers to run and operate code
on our servers.
I’m not going to talk right now about why “make it easier for developers to
run code on our servers” might involve “containers”, because that’s a whole other
post. Let’s suppose we believe that.
So if you have a bunch of existing infrastructure that you maybe want to move
to containers, what’s the migration plan? How do you get from here to there?
I was having trouble coming up with a migration plan that made sense to me,
but with the help of some delightful coworkers now I have one that I think
makes sense! This post makes an argument for that migration plan! Here’s the
tl;dr: (as usual everything that is wrong in this post is my responsibility
:))
You can run containers without using Docker
