Sabayon 15.11 KDE: hot, hotter and burnt

Reviews

Sabayon 15.11 KDE left quite contradictory impressions on me.

On the positive side, KDE 5, or Plasma 5 in this operating system was very much polished. I tried Plasma 5 in Kubuntu several times, but felt myself very uncomfortable there. Up until now I thought that Plasma 5 is a bit too unpolished. Sabayon 15.11 KDE fixed that my prejudice. I know now that KDE5 is the Desktop Envirnment everyone can use. Maybe that's the reason for Kubuntu team to revisit their approach.

  • Comparing Mobile Subscriber Data Across Different Sources - How accurate is the TomiAhonen Almanac every year?
    You’ll see that last spring I felt the world had 7.6 Billion total mobile subscriptions when machine-to-machine (M2M) connections are included. I felt the world had 7.2 Billion total subscriptions when excluding M2M and just counting those in use by humans. And the most relevant number (bottom line) is the ‘unique’ mobile users, which I felt was an even 5.0 Billion humans in 2015. The chart also has the total handsets-in-use statistic which I felt was 5.6 Billion at the end of 2015. Note that I was literally the first person to report on the distinction of the unique user count vs total subscriptions and I have been urging, nearly begging for the big industry giants to also measure that number. They are slowly joining in that count. Similarly to M2M, we also are now starting to see others report M2M counts. I have yet to see a major mobile statistical provider give a global count of devices in use. That will hopefully come also, soon. But lets examine these three numbers that we now do have other sources, a year later, to see did I know what I was doing.
