Maria Leandro: How do you Fedora?

Filed under
Red Hat
Interviews

I’m Maria Leandro, known also as Tatica and I work as a photographer on my own business, Tap.Pics. I work exclusively with Open Source tools, which has made my life quite interesting. I started with Linux back in 2005 and since then, I have never felt the need of change my OS. It started (like many other people), at college, and it became part of my personal and professional life. All my works have been related directly to Open Source technologies, including teaching and organizing events.

I started using Fedora in 2006, and still use Fedora as my base OS. I joined the community a bit later in 2008 and Fedora became a family to me. I have contributed with Design and Marketing, and have organized some events to attract more contributors.

Hardware Designs Should Be Free. Here’s How to Do It

Filed under
GNU
Hardware

First, we must understand why we can’t make hardware free the same way we make software free. Hardware and software are fundamentally different. A program, even in compiled executable form, is a collection of data which can be interpreted as instruction for a computer. Like any other digital work, it can be copied and changed using a computer. A copy of a program has no inherent physical form or embodiment.

  • Huawei wants more freedom to customize Android Wear

    The smartwatch market is filling up with unique hardware designs to suit your tastes, but many of them share identical software features, as they are running Google’s Android Wear OS. Huawei recently joined the smartwatch market with its announcement at MWC 2015, but the company is apparently unhappy with the lack of freedom offered by the Android Wear platform.

  • Google's Stubborn Nature Is Killing Android Wear

    Google is losing the battle to establish Android Wear as the de facto platform of the smartwatch and wearables movement. Recently passing just over one million downloads of the Android OS client app from the Google Play Store, the combined effort of Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC, Asus, and Sony has not led to a breakout hit. That’s before the juggernaut of Apple Watch, and Pebble’s second major iteration of software and hardware, overpower the market.

    Google is introducing a new age-rating system for Android apps and games on its Google Play store, while also revealing a new policy of reviewing apps before they are published on the store.

    The new age-rating system will see Android developers completing a questionnaire about their app or game’s content before it is published, rather than simply choosing a rating.

  • LG L90 gets Android 5 Lollipop update

    LG L90 is the affordable smartphone went official a year ago with a 4.7" display, Snapdragon 400 chip, and an 8MP cam all running on Android KitKat OS. It is pretty much the same phone as the LG G2 mini, but with front keys instead of the iconic rear control deck.

  • DROID Turbo to be Updated Straight to Android 5.1

    According to Luciano Carvalho, an engineer at Motorola, the DROID Turbo on Verizon is to receive an update straight to Android 5.1, bypassing all versions of Lollipop before it. Not to waste resources, the reasoning to skip other builds is stated to be Verizon’s urge for the device’s software to highlight VoLTE (HD Voice), which is native to Android 5.1. Beyond that, no other reason is listed.

  • Super Mario on Android? Nintendo announces they will finally release mobile games

  • Android smartwatch enlightens dumb phone and tablet

    Neptune launched a WiGig-connected “Neptune Suite” on Indiegogo, comprising an Android smartwatch, a barebones phone and tablet, and a keyboard and TV dongle.

    Neptune, which launched the full-featured, Android-based Neptune Pine smartwatch last year, tipped a Neptune Duo product in February that was to comprise an autonomous smartwatch that controlled a “dumb” smartphone. The Duo concept, which essentially flips the typical smartwatch paradigm on its head, has now blossomed into an Indiegogo project called the Neptune Suite.

Ubuntu

Canonical has been talking about its mobile plans for quite some time, promising that it will one day create a truly all-encompassing ecosystem that bridges the gap between mobile and desktop systems.

To date, however, we've seen only glimmers of hope that this will actually happen with Ubuntu. Other competing tech companies, like Microsoft with its recently unveiled Windows 10 OS, have begun gaining ground in efforts to create a converged ecosystem.

Fortunately we had our interest in Canonical's open-source Ubuntu Mobile operating system reignited at MWC 2015, as we finally got to see the platform in its full glory running on the Meizu MX4 smartphone.

GitHub sees support of open source licenses pay off

Filed under
OSS

When you think of GitHub, you think of open source software. Of course, just putting your code on GitHub doesn’t make it open source; you still need to explicitly choose a license for your code that allows others to use it. A new look at the number of projects on GitHub made available under open source licenses reveals that a significant number of developers aren’t doing that. However, recent efforts by GitHub to encourage project maintainers to license their code and to simplify the process appear to be bearing fruit.

Five reasons I roll with Arch Linux, and why you should too

Filed under
Linux

Installing Arch Linux is a bit like building your own house. You have to dig the foundation, erect the walls, build the roofs, run the plumbing and electrical wiring around it ... and all the rest of it. In other words, installing Arch Linux is not at all like renting an apartment, just moving in, and letting the landlord take care of everything else.

Arch is the primary distro that runs on my main system. I do use openSUSE, Ubuntu, and Kubuntu on it and switch between them from time to time. But I spend the majority of my PC time on the Arch system because I find it to be an excellent distribution for advanced, and new, Linux users. In a nutshell, I am hooked on it. And there are reasons for it.

The bigger question is, why did I choose Arch Linux over others and what does it have to offer that others don't.
