"So, Brian what do think of the show thus far?"

Please, don't even get me started.

Okay, maybe I was just grouchy because I'd blown out my knee the week before and was limping around a building that could swallow a small town. Maybe it was because there were no big releases being announced this time around. Maybe it was because I got suckered into thinking one of the after-show gatherings was going to be a really cool spot and it was actually a dive.

But people, this show was seriously lacking.

Energy. Traffic. News. Fun. Whatever. You name it, it was lacking. And this bothers me because, given the recent successes of Linux, there was no reason to be anything but a very cool show. And, save for a few stars, it wasn't.

Full Story.

  • Zanshin 0.2.2 transition release
    Three years, five months and eleven days... yes, it's the elapsed time since our last release announcement. But don't despair! We're still alive and kicking. We've been busy working on our next release which is much more ambitious than the previous one. As part of this future release, we had to adjust a bit how we store some information. That is why today we are announcing a transitional minor release. Behold Zanshin 0.2.2!
  • All the yummies at Akademy 2015
  • Fruits of Akademy
    For the second time I had the chance to attend Akademy, this time in cold and rainy La Coruña. It has been a week of interesting talks, good food (except for one Tortilla incident), and hacking. [...] KRunner History is Back Supposedly this was one of the reason I still saw quite a few people running Plasma 4 during the conference but now there’s no more reason not to do the switch! ;)
