There are lots of people in the U.S. gearing up for a long Memorial Day weekend, and if you happen to have extra time on your hands this weekend you may want to consider entering Mozilla’s Firefox Flicks contest. It’s a global video contest designed to give budding filmmakers the opportunity to create and submit short videos about letting people discover "the power of the web on mobile devices." (We covered it when it launched.) If you submit a short video by May 29, you qualify for Mozilla’s Early Entry status and you’ll be automatically entered to compete for the Grand Prize. Here is more on the prizes and rules. Mozilla has a number of example videos from the contest online and you can view them here. The contest runs through July 31, and winners will be chosen from four regions around the world: North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The Grand Prize winner will fly to Los Angeles to work with producers (and Flicks judges) Franklin Leonard and Couper Samuelson, and representatives from Panavision to professionally produce their winning entry using professional equipment. If you submit a flick by May 29,
Emerald Window Decorator development may have stopped and the package is no longer available in the Ubuntu repositories for a few releases, but there are users who want to continue using it, so to make it easier to install, I uploaded Emerald to the main WebUpd8 PPA, for Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10 and 12.04.Emerald is a window decorator for Compiz that allows full composite window decorations. There are many themes out there that come with frames, titlebars, buttons and so on that you won’t see in other window decorators, this being the main reason why Emerald was so popular a while back. Emerald is also highly customizable.Because it requires Compiz, Emerald doesn’t work in GNOME Shell, but it should work with Unity (3D), GNOME Classic with Compiz or Xfce with Compiz for instance.Here are a few of the many Emerald themes available on Gnome-Look, DeviantArt and so on:HalfTime Emerald themeDivergence IV “A New Hope” Emerald themeRadial Emerald themeLittleGlass Emerald themeDark glass with Ambiance buttons Emerald themeOrdinary Emerald themeThe themes can be tweaked using Emerald Theme Manager, which allows you to change the borders size, shadows, titlebar font and alignment and so on. For instance, the LittleGlass theme above has some pretty
Pinguy OS 13.04 (based on Ubuntu 13.04) beta has been released recently, this being basically the final 13.04 version because Pinguy has decided to keep the 6 month releases as betas and only the LTS will be considered stable.The non-LTS releases will be using bleeding edge software, like XBMC 13.0 alpha or GNOME 3.8 / GNOME Shell 3.8 that’s included in Pinguy OS 13.04, which isn’t included by default in Ubuntu 13.04 and so, it isn’t considered fully stable in Ubuntu. According to a recent Pinguy OS blog post, the 6 month releases are usable, but they might not include features that will be available in the LTS:”The 6 month Pinguy OS releases will be missing features that will be in the final LTS, but the release will be very usable. It just won’t be at a stage where I am happy to call it stable due to missing features or things not quite working as they should. The goal of the 6 month releases is to help give users insight and influence on where Pinguy OS is heading and help shape the LTS release”Pinguy OSFor those not familiar with Pinguy OS, this is an Ubuntu remaster with lots of

For me, the release of Mageia 3 was one of the most anticipated releases of the first half in 2013, after Debian Wheezy and Ubuntu Raring Ringtail. The release announcement of Mageia 3 promises of absolutely the very latest version of Linux kernel and applications, another reason for me to test Mageia’s to ascertain it’s stability.
