As you may know, Sopcast is needed if you want to watch TV channels online. Actually, it is the best player (as I know of) that allows you to watch online television channels.
The latest version available is Sopcast 0.8.5, which has been released a while ago. Recently, its PPA has received packages for Ubuntu Vivid.
We reported last week that Kubuntu's Jonathan Riddell expressed his feelings regarding Canonical's IP (Intellectual Property) policy for the Ubuntu Linux operating system, which was updated on the same day his blog post was written, July 15, 2015.
I'd like to request that the Community Council moves the Canonical IP
policy off the Ubuntu website.
It was revealed last week that is policy breached the GPL and still
leaves open numerous gaps in the ability of people to freely share,
copy and modify Ubuntu. It is hurting the reputation of Ubuntu as a
welcoming and functional free software project that respects the
licence of the upstreams we depend on.
For basic office tasks, the ProBook 455 Ubuntu isn't a bad desktop replacement, and Ubuntu has made big strides from niche project to a rounded OS that most people will adapt to comfortably.
Nonetheless, every one of this laptop's strengths seems to be countered by some related weakness. It's spacious and filled with ports, but clunky and heavy. Its operating system is feature-rich, but buggy. It's secure for now, but won't be in two years' time.
