softpedia: Development for Wayland 1.12 and Weston 1.12 started exactly a month ago when the first Alpha build was seeded to public testers
I have a Macbook Pro and a PC (dual boots Win10 and Ubuntu). Bought a SIIG KVM switch, single usb port 3.0 to switch my keyboard (as my monitor already has an input source toggle).
The boot loader seems unimpressed with my keyboard when it's ran thru the switch. Additionally, Ubuntu has some fatal errors on startup and seems very grumpy about the ordeal. I'm switching b/w two physical keyboards for the time being, but I wondered if anyone else here has experience with this (would like to tidy my desk as much as possible).submitted by /u/yaxamie

Lenovo Accused Of Locking Linux Out Of Certain Laptops At Microsoft's Request
So whether Microsoft is truly to blame here is still an open question. At the very least, it does seem like Lenovo has some questions to answer -- and one hopes that the company will be more forthright and honest than it was back during the Superfish episode when it basically lied through its teeth until it couldn't lie any more.

Softpedia’s Marius Nestor notes that Black Lab Linux 7.7 arrives with security fixes and software updates released in the Ubuntu Linux repos.
In October 2014, as part of the Firefox 34 beta release, Mozilla introduced its Firefox Hello communications technology enabling users to make calls directly from the browser. On Sept. 20, 2016, Mozilla formally removed support for Firefox Hello as part of the new Firefox 49 release.
