A Linux computer for grandpa and grandma

Filed under

Hardware

When I think of getting a Linux desktop, I first think about installing it myself. Next, I think about buying one with Linux pre-installed from a vendor such as Dell, System76, or ZaReason. What I haven't thought about it is buying one from an advertisement in a Sunday newspaper magazine called Parade. Maybe I should have. I recently discovered the WOW! Computer for Seniors..

The ad loudly proclaims that it's “A Computer Designed for YOU, Not Your Grandchildren!” And, that's it “Easy to read! Easy to set up! Easy to use!” And, if you look closely you'll find that it runs Linux.

Rest here

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
