Interviews

This time the Tromsø office of the Free software Centre and the newly elected board member of the association FRESH I've been speaking in my interview series with Skolelinux -people.

How did you connect with the Skolelinux project?

Skolelinux I have met on several occasions over the years, both through skolelinux enthusiastic users and skeptical "pundits" Smile

I remember a provider of a wide OS for a few years ago meant that Skolelinux was only for hackers and nerds and that no serious schools could take this in use. Fortunately, more knowledge now and proper "IT people" are always looking to expand their knowledge.

What are the benefits of Skolelinux as you see it?

Yes there are many benefits. Independence, stability, transparency, standards, etc. I think it's important not to limit the possibilities of the platform, students will be working.

While it will take longer than a radical switch, it is the best I can do right now. Eventually though, I'd like to run all but one system on Linux and not Windows.

5 Surprising Reasons Behind The GNOME Resurgence

When the team behind GNOME came out with GNOME 3, which included the infamous GNOME Shell, the most popular desktop environment of the time saw a sharp decrease in users. And honestly, that trend is pretty easy to explain. When GNOME 3 initially came out, it was incomplete, buggy, and foreign. The concepts behind GNOME Shell were never before seen on a desktop system, and lots of users who were used to panels/taskbars and menus didn’t like the rather dramatic changes. Read more
