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)

How To Install Puppy Linux Tahr On A USB Drive

Puppy Linux is a lightweight Linux distribution designed to run from removable devices such as DVDs and USB drives. There are a number of Puppy Linux variants including Puppy Slacko, which utilises the Slackware repositories, and Puppy Tahr which utilises the Ubuntu repositories. Other versions of Puppy Linux include Simplicity and MacPUP. It is possible to use UNetbootin to create a bootable Puppy Linux USB drive but it isn't the method that is recommended. Puppy Linux works great on older laptops, netbooks and computers without hard drives. It isn't designed to be installed on a hard drive but you can run it that way if you want to. Read more

Librem 15 Is a Beast of a Linux Laptop with a Gorgeous Finish

Librem 15 aims to be the only laptop coming with completely free software and its makers are looking to get some funding through a crowdfunding campaign. You might think that if a laptop ships with any Linux distribution, then it would stand to reason that it would be loaded with free and open source software, but the truth is that it's not that simple or even intuitive. For example, it's true that the Linux kernel is an open source project and that it's freely distributable, but there are some people in the community that say it's not enough. Read more

Google and Facebook feel the wrath of German open source advocate

Open-Xchange CEO Rafael Laguna has hit out at the closed nature of services offered by Silicon Valley giants like Google and Facebook. Speaking in Paris earlier this month, Laguna said many of Silicon Valley's largest companies, and others like them, need to open up their proprietary systems to comply with laws around the world and uphold many of the citizen’s rights that people have fought for over the last several hundred years.
