  • Top 4 Linux VoIP clients

    It’s easier than ever to get your own SIPs account, whether you’re making it through Ekiga, a third-party site or even setting it up yourself on a home server. Jitsi is the app that gets the very most out of whatever you set up, even if you don’t plan to use SIPs.

The rest of the clients did not offer settings nearly this deep, and the codecs available were definitely a plus.

  • w: Plus a little rant

    We need to talk. If you’re a software designer or a programmer of some merit, we really need to have a quick discussion about your application.

  • Open education: How students save money by creating open textbooks
    Most people consider a college education the key to future success, but for many students, the cost is insurmountable. The growing open educational resource (OER) movement is attempting to address this problem by providing a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, while at the same time empowering students and educators in innovative ways. One of the leaders in this movement is Robin DeRosa, a professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git.
