  • GPL, Creative Commons and human brain malwares.

    Intellectual property is a term referring to a number of distinct types of creations of the mind for which property rights are recognized. Personally, I love the idea of sharing as quoted in GPL : The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions of a program–to make sure it remains free software for all its users.

  • Comparison: Ubuntu update manager and 2clickUpdate

    After publishing the 5.5.version of 2click Update, it got an unexpected attention by the community. Many referral links, reviews, code contribution, translations and some emails pointing in one general question: what the heck does it do and why to use 2click Update when there is already Ubuntu Update manager available After some mails talking about the reasons why 2click Update is better than “classic” update manager with Andrew, author of Web Upd8 , I realized that many people could have the same questions that raised upon the discussion. Let me give you a better description of what makes 2click Update a “smart robot”(script).

  • 2clickUpdate CORE και 2clickUpdate v5.0

    Μετά κόπων και βασάνων (εντάξει… λέμε τώρα) μια νέα έκδοση είναι διαθέσιμη. Θέλω να ευχαριστήσω όλους τους γνωστούς φίλους και ανώνυμους φίλους που συνεισφέρανε με ιδέες και προτάσεις για να γίνει όσο το δυνατόν καλύτερο το 2click Update. Ειδικότερα θέλω να ευχαριστήσω τον Σίμο Ξενιτέλλη που με παρότρυνε να διαχειρίζομαι τον κώδικα με Version Control System και μου έλυσε τα χέρια σχετικά με τις μεταφράσεις του 2click Update. Τα νέα όμως δεν τελειώνουν εδώ…

  • 2click Update v4.0 Codename “Dimitris”

    2click Update v4.0 Codename “Dimitris”

    Ποιο να είναι το επόμενο βήμα, τι να προσθέσω τι να αφαιρέσω… Είναι κάποιες από τις ερωτήσεις που τριγυρνούσαν στο μυαλό μου όταν είχα ανακοινώσει το μικρό project που ξεκίνησα πριν λίγο καιρό. Εκεί, στη μεγάλη παρέα του Linuxformat ήρθε η απάντηση από τον “Guru”, Δημήτρη Καλαμαρά : – η progress bar ουσιαστικά δεν είναι progress bar, απλώς πηγαίνει πέρα – δώθε. Ίσως με λίγη ακόμα μαγεία να μπορούσες να το φτιάξεις. – το σκριπτάκι βγάζει συνέχεια το μήνυμα “το σύστημα αναβαθμίζεται” χωρίς να λέει τι ακριβώς αναβαθμίζει. Δεν θα ήταν καλύτερο να εμφανίζει ένα μικρό κουμπάκι από κάτω για να βλέπεις την ίδια την κονσόλα; Δεν έδινε λύση απλά με δυο αράδες τόνισε τα σημεία εκείνα που θα κάνουν τη διαφορά από την προηγούμενη έκδοση.
