Drupal, KDE, and You

Filed under
KDE
Drupal

Work continues on the Dot update. We're in the middle boring stages now, plenty going on, but there isn't really anything interesting to talk about on that front. There will be soon, and I appreciate everyone's patience. But I wanted to take some time to talk about something relatively important. Why did I choose Drupal for the Dot?

There are a lot of other choices, and other platforms would have been easier to set up. For instance, WordPress has an excellent import feature, and at this point it's clear that it would have been easier to use WordPress for importing stories than Drupal. Also, WordPress is really all that the Dot would need right now. Multiple authors can make posts, they can be categorized, it has a nice WYSIWYG editor, etc.

But yet, I chose Drupal. I am experienced with Drupal, but even that wasn't the real reason that I chose it.

Your Old Computer Can Live Again with Emmabuntüs 2

Emmabuntüs 2 1.09, a distribution created for reconditioning old computers and relying on the robustness of Xubuntu 12.04.5 LTS, has been released and is now ready for download. The Emmabuntüs developers only use LTS editions of Xubuntu, and that means they actually have two distros out right now that are maintained and improved. We had Emmabuntüs 3 1.0 released a few weeks ago, but that one was using Xubuntu 14.04 LTS as the base. Now, the old branch based on Xubuntu 12.04, Emmabuntüs 2, has been improved as well and the devs have made quite a few changes. Read more

11 years developing Krita

Back in 2003 Krita had never been released and the application was only able to do some very crude painting. I think the main reason that I started contributing to Krita back then was that I was much more comfortable with the single window UI and the fact that it used Qt/KDE and C++. In the early days I would never have imagined that I would be still with the project after 10+ years and how big the project is now. Even that the project exists today is a miracle and result of many developers putting in effort without ever knowing how it would develop. For the first few years we had almost no users and the users that we had were die-hard KDE users. At the time that wasn’t a bad thing as it allowed us to do some radical changes and experiments. Many features that were developed during this time still provide the base for the current Krita. Read more
