I tried Fedora 19 KDE one more time

Filed under
Linux

My first attempt to use Fedora 19 KDE was not very successful. All in all, it was a blunder. But then I revived my aging LG laptop, which means I decided to give Fedora one more chance.

Live session

This time, things worked out well. I was able to reach the live session without any silly questions being asked. You will note that the kernel has been updated since the official release, so some of the funky stuff may have been fixed. Must have been. But then again, the LG machine is different from the T61 test box, hence the uncertainty.

2014: The Open Source Tipping Point

2014 was a tipping point where companies decided there was too much software to write for any one company to do it by themselves. They are shedding commodity software R&D by investing in “external R&D” with open source. Those who master the game have a compelling advantage. Those who don’t are getting left behind. We are experiencing an innovation renaissance that is largely driven by open source software that powers distributed, scale out systems. It’s been a pleasure to see this trend develop this year and I’m looking forward to 2015 with anticipation. Read more
