Unveiled last month, the HP Dev One laptop is the culmination of several years of collaboration between HP and System76 in an attempt to provide developers of all sorts with a premium notebook that ships with the Ubuntu-based Pop!_OS Linux distribution pre-installed.

HP Dev One is not a configurable laptop and it features an 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 PRO processor with AMD Radeon integrated graphics, 16GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM, 1TB PCIe NVMe M.2 storage, and a beautiful Full HD (1920×1080) 1,000 nit display.

HP Dev One laptop running System76's Ubuntu Linux-based Pop!_OS

  • HP Dev One laptop running System76's Ubuntu Linux-based Pop!_OS now available

    Last month, the open source community was abuzz with excitement following a shocking announcement from System76 that HP was planning to release a laptop running the Pop!_OS operating system. This was significant for several reasons, but most importantly, it was a huge win for Linux users as yet another hardware option was becoming available. Best of all, HP employees have been trained by System76 to offer high-quality customer support. If you aren't aware, System76 support is legendary.

    At the time of the announcement, details about the hardware were a bit scarce, but I am happy to report we now have full system specifications for the 14-inch HP Dev One laptop. Most interestingly, there is only one configuration to be had. The developer-focused computer is powered by an octa-core AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U APU which features integrated Radeon graphics. The notebook comes with 16GB RAM and 1TB of NVMe storage, both of which can be user-upgraded later if you choose.

    The previous workstations used Ubuntu 20.04 preloaded with software packages aimed at data scientists. However, the Dev One runs Pop!_OS, an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution from System76.

    System76 also makes its own laptops, desktops, servers, and the Launch mechanical keyboard. HP's Dev One marks the first laptop to run Pop!_OS without "System76" stamped on the lid—although, you can download Pop!_OS and install it on your own system.

HP’s New Linux Laptop is Available to Pre-Order

  • HP’s New Linux Laptop is Available to Pre-Order

    HP is taking orders for the HP Dev One, its first developer-focused laptop preloaded with the Ubuntu-based Pop!_OS Linux distribution.

    Shocked? Don’t be. We learned of this device’s existence last month when System76 CEO Carl Richell dropped mention of it on his Twitter, proper casual like. Reaction from Pop fans was understandably effusive, with folks wanting to learn the salient what, why’s, how’s and where’s.

New Linux Laptop Line Advances HP, System76 Open-Source Collabor

  • New Linux Laptop Line Advances HP, System76 Open-Source Collaboration | LinuxInsider

    Collaboration between Linux computer and software firm System76 and HP is pushing for greater commercial adoption of open-source software and hardware optimized for Linux.

    System76 and HP on Thursday announced a new premium computer line designed to attract a wider audience to the developer-focused HP Dev One laptop computer.

    HP’s new Dev One, powered by System76’s popular Pop!_OS Linux distribution, empowers developers to create their ideal work experience with multiple tools to help them perform tasks at peak efficiency not available on other computing platforms.

    The Pop!_OS platform features auto-tiling, workspaces, and easy keyboard navigation. This flexibility allows software developers to create unique optimized workflows to unleash their coding potential.

    Typically, Linux users install their preferred Linux platform as a replacement for the default Microsoft Windows on computers they purchase. Relatively few OEMs build their own hardware line and tune it for specific Linux offerings.

    Denver-based System76 developed its own customized version of the GNOME desktop environment to help advance Linux as the future of computing. The company developed Pop!_OS after Canonical decided to stop the development of the Unity 8 desktop shell in 2017 and replaced its default desktop with GNOME 3.

    “By bringing together our engineering, marketing, and customer support, System76 [and] HP are introducing HP Dev One to combine powerful hardware with optimized Pop!_OS for the app dev community,” announced Carl Richell, CEO, System76.

  • HP Dev One laptop with Pop!_OS Linux now available for $1099

    The HP Dev One is a notebook designed for professional developers. The 3.24 pound notebook has a 14 inch full HD display, a backlit spill-resistant keyboard with a pointing stick in the center as well as a glass-covered clickpad below it, and an AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U processor.

    But the main thing that marks this as a developer-centric laptop (other than the name)? It ships with a Linux distribution called Pop!_OS rather than Windows. First announced in may, the HP Dev One is now available for $1099.

HP and System76 Teamed Up to Build a Powerful Linux Laptop

  • HP and System76 Teamed Up to Build a Powerful Linux Laptop

    System76 has been selling some of the best Linux laptops for years, but now the company is teaming up with HP to sell the ‘HP Dev One’ — a laptop built for developers with System76’s custom flavor of Linux.

    System76 has plenty of its own laptops and desktops, and in 2017, it started developing its own variant of Ubuntu Linux called Pop!_OS. Pop is now a popular Linux distribution in its own right, with a customized desktop interface and additional built-in drivers, and the OS can be installed on third-party PCs. However, the only computers that shipped with Pop were from System76 itself… until now.

    HP has started accepting pre-orders for the HP Dev One, a new laptop primarily aimed at development work. It appears to be a slightly-customized version of the HP EliteBook 845 G8, with an 8-core/16-thread AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U processor, a 14-inch LED screen (without touch), a glass touchpad, a 1TB NVMe SSD for storage, 16GB RAM, and a 720p camera. That amount of RAM might be too little for some development work, but System76 confirmed that the SSD, Wi-Fi card, and RAM can be easily replaced or upgraded.

    The System76/HP collaboration Dev One laptop, geared toward developers, is now available for pre-order.

    HP has teamed up with System76 to create a developer-focused laptop, called the Dev One, which ships with Pop!_OS Linux and starts at $1099.00. The original announcement came out in May 2022 and, at the time, the laptop was unavailable for pre-order. Fast forward to now and users can now order one of these shiny new pieces of Linux-powered hardware.

    The Dev One keeps the prices slightly lower by going with an AMD CPU and shrugs off a discrete graphics card. The base model ships with an 8 Core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U with a 1.9-4.4 GHz clock speed, an integrated Radeon graphics chipset, and 8GB of DDR4-3200 RAM (upgradable to 64GB). The chassis is .75" thick and has a 1TB PCIe 3x4 NVMe M.2 SSD and the display is 14" at 1920x1080 and 1,000 nits max brightness. However, due to the display glass, the brightness is actually 800 nits.

I Still Have Something to Say

  • [Reposted] Jay Little - Software Obsessionist - Proof of Life: I Still Have Something to Say

    Well what can I say? If you are in any way involved with the Linux community, then you already know what this is. For the rest of you, click here. Long story short: The Dev One is Hewlett's Packard's way of dipping their toe into the Linux hardware enthusiast market.

    So you can probably guess what happened next. I bought one. Duh. I have had it over a week. My Tuxedo Pulse 15 Gen 1 keyboard was really getting bad, which is a shame because beyond that, I really loved that laptop. The keyboard on the Dev One appears to be far superior, along with the trackpad. I'm literally typing this very blog post on the keyboard.

    In fact the only downside of the Dev One is the shitty Realtek wireless card it ships with. If you buy one of these, I strongly suggest you crack it open and switch out the wifi card for an Intel AX200 or AX201. It is 100% worth it, especially as the machine does not come with an ethernet port. Despite the 5850U processor in the Dev One having a TDP that is 1/3rd of the TDP of the 4800H in the Pulse laptop, performance is about the same. Battery life is worse, but the Pulse has a 90+ watt hour battery whereas the HP has a 53 watt hour battery. Nevertheless I can get 6 to 8 hours on it with no problem, which is more than enough for me.

  • How to Add Repository to Debian

    APT checks the health of all the packages, and dependencies of the package before installing it. APT fetches packages from one or more repositories. A repository (package source) is basically a network server. The term "package" refers to an individual file with a .deb extension that contains either all or part of an application. The normal installation comes with default repositories configured, but these contain only a few packages out of an ocean of free software available. In this tutorial, we learn how to add the package repository to Debian.

  • Making a Video of a Single Window

    I recently wanted to send someone a video of a program doing some interesting things in a single X11 window. Recording the whole desktop is easy (some readers may remember my post on Aeschylus which does just that) but it will include irrelevant (and possibly unwanted) parts of the screen, leading to unnecessarily large files. I couldn't immediately find a tool which did what I wanted on OpenBSD [1] but through a combination of xwininfo, FFmpeg, and hk I was able to put together exactly what I needed in short order. Even better, I was able to easily post-process the video to shrink its file size, speed it up, and contort it to the dimension requirements of various platforms. Here's a video straight out of the little script I put together: [...]

    The short answer to the question is a resounding no, and it all boils down to the fact that the IndieWeb is really complicated to implement, so it will only ever appeal to developers.

CUPS is the primary mechanism in the Unix-like operating system for printing and print services. It can allow a computer to act as a Print server. In this tutorial, we learn how to set up CUPS print server on Ubuntu 22.04.

Open Hardware: XON/XOFF and Raspberry Pi Pico

  • From XON/XOFF to Forward Incremental Search

    In the olden days of computing, software flow control with control codes XON and XOFF was a necessary feature that dumb terminals needed to support. When a terminal received more data than it could display, there needed to be a way for the terminal to tell the remote host to pause sending more data. The control code 19 was chosen for this. The control code 17 was chosen to tell the remote host to resume transmission of data.
