It has been rumored that Facebook would be integrating Spotify somewhere into its social network. But regardless of the Facebook’s announcement coming shortly, know this: Spotify is officially on its way to the United States.

Spotify hasn’t released many details or made a huge announcement just yet, except for the following blurb on its international website, which basically confirms what everyone has speculated about for months:

It's offical

What's Spotify and why should I care if it's in the States or not?

Who knows what you care about?

I don't know, because I don't know you. If don't care much for music then it probably isn't on your wish list. If you like an option to find music of a diversity of genres and epochs though, then you'll probably want to check out Spotify. At its current state you find new releases of not only pop/rock/r&b, but also of jazz and classical (how I hate that term) music. In the end I always buy the music I want preferably directly as flac files or order as CDs, hence download services of mp3 isn't anything I'm interested in. Nevertheless Spotify has helped me to fill gaps in my collection of quite arty music, hence you find more than the obvious.

  • Minwaita: A Compact Version of Theme Adwaita for Gnome Desktop
    As you may already know that Ubuntu is switching back to Gnome, this is the transition time for Ubuntu to switch back. Some creators are motivated and creating themes for Gnome desktop, which is a good thing and hopefully we shall see plenty of Gnome themes and icons around soon. As its name shows "Minwaita" it is minimal/compact version of Adwaita theme, the theme is available after some enhancements to make Gnome more sleek and more vanilla Gnome experience without moving to away from Adwaita's design. This theme is compatible with Gnome 3.20 and up versions. This theme was released back in November, 2016 and still in continuous development that means if you find any problem or bug in the theme then report it to get it fixed in the next update.

  • Widget hierarchies in GTK+ 4.0
    In GTK+3, only GtkContainer subclasses can have child widgets. This makes a lot of sense for “public” container children like we know them, e.g. GtkBox — i.e. the developer can add, remove and reorder child widgets arbitrarily and the container just does layout.
