A Quick Look at Gimp3 (2.99) ..Yeap, 3 :)

Filed under
GIMP

What’s Gimp3? Simply the port of Gimp 2.8 in GTK 3, or if you prefer the version after the 2.10 version. The look was quick indeed, because Gimp was consuming 100% CPU so I couldn’t check it at all.

I guess that this bug had to do with my compiling and it isn’t a real bug, but it isn’t really matter because all I wanted to see was the theme, which by the way was -by default- the impressive dark Adwaita!

when is coming?

Gimp roadmap doesn’t give any dates and I asked Gimp developer Michael Natterer (aka mitch). Mitch told us: Gimp on GTK3 won’t come any time soon, but oh well we can still try it from gtk-3 branch.

OEMs Adapt To The Decline In The Market For PCs

We are no longer living in a time when */Linux or ARM were just “barely good enough”. They are perfect for many purposes. Consumers want them. OEMs will supply them. Shipped by the millions, these new solutions will cost much less than Wintel’s monopolistic prices. Read more

How open source can be a gateway to your next job

By my observation, the demand for people in open source is at an all-time high. Open source technologies such as programming languages, libraries, and tools are now mainstream. Participating in an open source community can help you learn those tools, and when you go on job interviews you can not only discuss your shiny new degree, but you can point to things you've actually done that made a difference.
