GNOME Receives Hardware Donations to Assist with High-Definition Support

Filed under
Software

The GNOME Foundation has received several generous donations of laptops, which will be made available to contributors to assist with ongoing work on high-definition display support.

High-definition displays offer a significant improvement over traditional hardware, and are set to become increasingly popular in the future. GNOME is working to ensure that our software works well with them, and takes advantage of the opportunities they offer.

One of the donated laptops was provided by Brion Vibber, a GNOME user and supporter.

Leftovers: OSS

  • Obsidian Systems brings open source monitoring with Icinga
  • Obsidian offers Open Source monitoring with Icinga
    Obsidian Systems is now the exclusive African reseller partner for Icinga, a scalable and extensive monitoring system that checks the availability of resources, notifies of outages and provides business intelligence data.
  • Open source connects the dots in the digital transformation
    Developments in cloud, big data, analytics, and social and mobile technologies are all happening to a large extent because the underlying technology is evolving quickly, and Red Hat believes that this is happening because a lot of it is based on open source and is developed collaboratively between multiple communities and companies. Much of the cloud is based on Linux and open source based technologies, consequently open source is a key driving force in these changes and the rapid innovation cycles.
  • Lime hits crowdfunding target, a milestone in open source mobile hardware
    UK RF specialist Lime Microsystems has raised almost $624,000 in a crowdfunding campaign to bring its LimeSDR software defined radio to market, and will now begin production of the radios, which enable open source, programmable ‘network in a box’ devices for low cost coverage, especially in rural or temporary networks.
  • Nokia is traditional telecoms’ fifth column, embracing open source disruption
    One of the most important trends in the current reinvention of the mobile network is the introduction of open source to infrastructure hardware. Open source processes have been creeping into this formerly tightly closed world in software (from Android to carrier Linux) and in devices, but the network equipment itself remained the preserve of proprietary vendors and formal standards bodies. Now that is changing. From small innovators like Lime Microsystems (see separate item), to entrenched guardians of the old ways, like Nokia, suppliers are finding new ways to work with open source.
