Skolelinux interview: Morten Amundsen

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.

  • The Pop GTK Theme Brings Ubuntu with GNOME to Life
    If you’re looking to give your newly minted GNOME desktop a bit of a makeover look no further than the Pop GTK theme. Created by the popular Ubuntu computer seller System76, the Pop GTK theme puts a modern spin on the Ubuntu brown and orange colour scheme (which also happen to be the colours used in the System76 logo).
  • 2017 will be the year of the Linux desktop... for GNOME on Ubuntu
    A few weeks ago, Mark Shuttleworth, now CEO of Canonical, announced that the Unity desktop shell would be abandoned in favour of GNOME. While we were told that GNOME would be used by Ubuntu 18.04, we weren't sure whether it'd be included in Ubuntu 17.10, the next release. Following a meeting on IRC, we now know that GNOME will ship by default in the next release.
  • Ubuntu GNOME merged into mainline Ubuntu
    Ubuntu has been using the Unity environment developed by Caonical Ltd. since the netbook edition of Ubuntu 10.10, initially released on June 9, 2010. However, it has been decided that the Unity environment would no longer be the standard environment used for the popular GNU/Linux distro. In a blog post by Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu and Canonical, he says, "We are wrapping up an excellent quarter and an excellent year for the company, with performance in many teams and products that we can be proud of. As we head into the new fiscal year, it’s appropriate to reassess each of our initiatives. I’m writing to let you know that we will end our investment in Unity8, the phone and convergence shell. We will shift our default Ubuntu desktop back to GNOME for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS."
