  • 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. Thanks to its ability to connect to other chat services, it becomes an all-in-one chat and IM client for however you want to contact people.

    The sheer wealth of settings available in Jitsi is also astonishing, allowing you to tweak specific timeout, port and other connection settings you may never actually need to change. The rest of the clients did not offer settings nearly this deep, and the codecs available were definitely a plus.

  • wajig: Unite the clans!
  • 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.

    Over the past year and a half or so, I’ve been scraping the landscape for text-based programs and trying them out for fun.

HP has recently been facing some serious difficulties and has opted to betting all its resources on the new PC called ‘The Machine’. Probably the most intriguing thing about the machine is that it will rewrite basic computing on a very fundamental level.

YEAR of the PENGUIN: A Linux mobile in 2015?

It's nearly impossible to sum up an entire year of developments in something as large and nebulous as the world of desktop Linux, especially in a year like this one which has seen some the best releases that projects like Mint, Fedora and openSUSE have put out to date. At the same time the distro that's closest to being a household name, Ubuntu, has been nearly silent since 14.04 arrived in April. To paraphrase author Charles Dickens, the past year of Linux releases has been both the best of times and the worst of times. At the very moment that Linux desktops seem to be reaching new levels of sophistication, polish and "just works" ease-of-use, the entire future of the desktop computer (by which I also mean laptop) feels in doubt.
