TuxMachines: This is the world’s most stunning new Android phone – and it’ll only cost you $5,000

Friday 19th of December 2014 09:11:54 PM

While there’s no question that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are beautiful smartphones, some might argue that Apple’s 2012 iPhone 5 and last year’s iPhone 5s feature an overall look that is more sleek and sophisticated. Now, imagine that sophisticated design was given harder lines, darker tones and a 5-inch full HD display, and it was built out of titanium and 18k gold instead of aluminum.

TuxMachines: FSF's High Priority Project List Now Has A Committee

Friday 19th of December 2014 08:51:09 PM

The Free Software Foundation has now built up a committee to review their "High Priority Projects" list and they're looking for more feedback from the community.

Nearly ten years ago is when the Free Software Foundation began listing what they viewed as the High Priority Free Software Projects in a list. This list has over time contained some definite high-priority projects related to freeing Java and Adobe PDF support and open graphics drivers to some more obscure projects of high priority like a free version of Oracle Forms, a replacement to OpenDWG libraries for CAD files, automatic transcription software, etc. I've personally called out many of the FSF HPP for what they're worth with my thoughts over the years.

Slashdot: LinuxFest Northwest 2015 Will be Held April 25 and 26 (Video)

Friday 19th of December 2014 08:14:00 PM
Their website says, 'Come for the code, stay for the people! We have awesome attendees and electrifying parties. Check out the robotics club, the automated home brewing system running on Linux, or the game room for extra conference fun.' This is an all-volunteer conference, and for a change the volunteers who run it are getting things together far in advance instead of having sessions that don't get scheduled until a few days before the conference, which has happened more than once with LFNW. So if you have an idea for a session, this is the time to start thinking about it. Sponsors are also welcome -- and since LFNW sponsorships regularly sell out, it's not to soon to start thinking about becoming a sponsor -- and if you are part of a non-profit group or FOSS project, LFNW offers free exhibit space because this is a conference that exists for the community, not to make money for a corporate owner. But don't delay. As you can imagine, those free exhibit spots tend to fill up early. (Alternate Video Link)

TuxMachines: Linux 3.19: ThinkPad Muting Redone, New Dell Backlight Support, Acer Is Banging

Friday 19th of December 2014 08:10:08 PM

The x86 platform driver changes for the Linux 3.19 kernel have been submitted and they include some noteworthy improvements for many Linux laptop owners.

First up, the ThinkPad ACPI driver has been hugely reworked to simplify sound muting. The ThinkPad ACPI driver is now doing software muting rather than the hardware-based muting of sound. ThinkPad laptops commonly have hardware volume controls going back years for muting and volume up/down. The muting is done at the hardware volume control but is a problem as the Linux user-space will also handle the hotkey events and change the state of the other mixer. In the end you can end up in states where the hardware mixer is muted, the software mixer is unmuted, and when hitting the hardware mute key you will just switch states for both mixers.
