Obits

KDE stalwart and African developer Uwe Thiem passed away on Friday afternoon. Uwe was a long-standing developer of KDE and an ardent advocate of free and open source software.

Uwe was born in Germany in 1954 but lived the last 14 years of his life in Namibia, a country he loved. On his personal website he wrote: “I came to sunny Namibia in December 1994 and fell in love with this beautiful country almost immediately. The vast open spaces, the relaxed lifestyle, the people, the diversity of cultures, the wildlife - all of it makes me feel like I belong to Africa where mankind has once taken its first steps.”

Uwe was the organisational contact for KDE in Africa. He was also the author of two books: KDE Application Development and KDE Programmierung.

Our Favourite Apps for Ubuntu

We enjoy using Ubuntu mainly for gaming, writing, listening to music and browsing the web. (Lots and lots of browsing the web.) There are other apps that we would love to have on Ubuntu like Affinity Photo, a stunning image editor that’s on par with Adobe’s Photoshop that’s available on Windows and Mac as well as Bear, a beautifully designed note taking app that we do most of our writing on that’s only available for macOS. However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
