On behalf of Merpel and all the readers of this weblog, the IPKat wishes to thank the IPO for what, he believes, is the first public response of any national office to the current unrest. He also thanks the IPO for its willingness to answer questions from those concerned about the present situation and what he hopes will be its future resolution.
It is very much hoped that other national offices will express their willingness to do the same, whether through the medium of this weblog or through channels more appropriate to the nations concerned.
Linux Deepin remains a refreshing, unique offering on the distro market, with a truly beautiful composition and some rather lovely programs. It works well overall, but its attempt to look apart comes with the stability slash complexity price. The performance is not among the best, and some of the tools and applications could benefit from slight simplification, in that they ought to reduce the bling in favor of pure functionality.
There are other problems, like the lack of the live session, the Store clutter and such. Still, if you are looking for something Ubuntu-like with charm and culture of its own, then Deepin realizes a reality that is so far different from others, it's quite amazing. Not the best plug and play derivative, to be sure, but it could easily get there. The recipe has been laid out hereby. Final grade, something like 9/10. Not bad at all. You should definitely give it a try.
One of the nicest things I can say about any operating system is it is useful and running it is pleasantly boring. I like it when operating systems are easy to set up, they provide me with the tools I want so I can work (and play) and then they stay out of my way. Netrunner does exactly those things. The distribution is wonderfully easy to install, the operating system ships with lots of useful software and there are a minimum of distractions and notifications. The configuration panel offers a good balance of flexibility with easy navigation, the Muon Discover software manager is quick and easy to use and Netrunner worked well with my hardware.
Linus announced yesterday that his poll has concluded and 29,110 voters have spoken. Elsewhere, Julie Bort got a look at the Accidental Revolutionary's workspace - which centers around his 'Zombie shuffling' desktop. In other news, two prominent distributions today announced the start of their community wallpaper contests.
F&S Elektronik Systeme debuted a COM based on Freescale’s new MCU-enabled “i.MX 6SoloX” SoC, and offering dual GbE, multimedia, serial, and PCIe interfaces.
The Efus A9X is based on F&S’s existing i.MX 6-based Efus A9 module, its first computer-on-module to use the company’s 62 x 47mm Efus form-factor. The company’s new Efus A9X COM, in turn, builds upon Freescale’s new i.MX 6SoloX system-on-chip, which integrates a single Cortex-A9 core, much like the i.MX 6Solo, but supplements it with a 200MHz ARM Cortex-M4 MCU.
By now, most of you have likely heard about the new Ubuntu phone selling out fairly quickly after its release. In a crowded mobile market, any new entries to the smart phone operating system space must find their niche fairly quickly. We've seen how failing to address this can lead to mediocre results with Windows Phones.
In this article, we'll examine the existing challenges the new mobile player faces and what they can do about it.
The Document Foundation today announced the release of LibreOffice 3.4.6, the latest update for the conservative user and supported deployments. This release brings over 100 bug and security fixes as the foundation celebrates three years. TDF released a video as "a testimonial of the activity of many members of the LibreOffice community."
What was really needed, Greshake realized, was a social network for DNA, one that would make it easy to upload genetic information and share it with others. “Maybe there are people who are interested in publishing their genetic information on the web to make it available, but those people don’t have the opportunity,” Greshake says he thought at the time.
So, he set out to build an open-source website—OpenSNP—that would be able to pull in genetic information from services like 23andMe, plus any other data users wanted to upload, with ease. He hoped that one day scientists would be able to use it to do world-changing science.
