Kubuntu 15.10 Beta 1 (Wily Werewolf), a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu and the KDE desktop environment, is now out and ready for testing.

After many delays, all four major mobile Linux alternatives to Android have finally arrived on smartphones. Mozilla’s Firefox OS was first out of the gate two years ago, followed by Jolla’s Sailfish OS, and this year they were joined by the first Ubuntu and Tizen phones. Yet, a fifth open source mobile Linux platform may have already eclipsed them all. The CyanogenMod flavor of Android is rapidly expanding from its role as the most popular alternative mobile phone mod for flashing onto Android phones to being a much sought after pre-installed OS.
Transforming an Android device into an open source-based camera is actually easier than you might think. And while there are not very many Android open source photography apps out there, all the essential pieces are available on F-Droid and elsewhere.
