They’re not necessarily the best movies—just the ones that got the science right, or will sometime soon.

Filed under
Software

I was hooked. Alas, my conversion to Linux several years ago forced me to abandon UltraEdit. I check the UltraEdit user forums from time to time, and what did I see?

    Gedit is the default text editor on Ubuntu and just about a bajillion other Linux distros — but it’s also unmaintained. Did you know that? I didn’t. Not until a reader mentioned it to me earlier today. And, sure enough, head over to Gedit page on the GNOME Wiki and you can see for yourself that the project is “no longer maintained” and is “looking for new maintainers”.
  • Going to GUADEC 2017
    This year I am also giving a presentation about the application story in Endless OS. Our infrastructure, our changes to GNOME Software, our heavy use of Flatpak, etc. Hopefully you’ll find it interesting.

    I know many of you have wanted to test running Wayland on NVidia. The work on this continues between Jonas Ådahl, Adam Jackson and various developers at NVidia. It is not ready for primetime yet as we are still working on the server side glvnd piece we need for XWayland. That said with both Adam Jackson looking at this from our side and Kyle Brenneman looking at it from NVidia I am sure we will be able to hash out the remaining open questions and get that done.

    Yesterday I completed an incredible first year in the fedora project, I noticed it because I was awarded with one badge for it (egg badge). I arrived a month ago through whatcanidoforfedora, who told me that it was a good idea to go to ambassadors, commops and infrastructure, I tried first in ambassadors and immediately I was kicked :P. being member of any major parts of the fedora project requires a lot of patience and work. that was my first learning about the the project.
