Good times with Fedora Linux upgrades

Filed under
Linux

zdnet.co.uk/blogs: I've used Fedora for years, basically because I've used Red Hat Linux since the late 1990's, and I've always loved the fact that Red Hat stands behind its products. And Fedora is no exception. But, upgrading entire system every 6 months seems extreme when used on an everyday PC. Or is it?

Linux

techgage.com: After I posted our news item of Fedora 15's release, I got restless. I had to install it.

Ubuntu Convergence

  • The Race to Convergence: Or is it a Marathon?
    This article, although it was smart to feature Ubuntu as a forerunner, it foolishly tried to give credit to Microsoft for ‘truly being the first’ to do convergence. First, did they? I had no idea. Nor do I care. Nor does anyone else I roll with. If the name has ‘Microsoft’ in it, we flee for the hills. Why? Because it’s compromised out of the box. It is dangerous.
  • Have We Converged Yet?
    Convergence is not about a unified computing experience across all your devices. Although that's an important goal, convergence is more about that point in time where your philosophy that technology should respect people converges with that of a group or company that believes the same.

    With the new Ubuntu tablet out the door, Canonical also had to upgrade the website to reflect the changes accordingly, so now ubuntu.com has a really nice section dedicated to the BQ Aquaris M10. If we don't take Android into account, we can't really say that there are successful Linux-based tablet out there. It's not clear why that came to pass, but until this Ubuntu-powered tablet landed, there wasn't much competition. To be fair, there is not much competition right now, since Apple and Google pretty much dominate the market, but BQ Aquaris M10 is the only one that can double down as a regular PC.
  • BQ Ubuntu Tablet Has 64-bit CPU and Will Be Able to Run 32-bit ARM Apps

  • What the Ubuntu Convergence Means for Businesses, Consumers, OEMs, and Devs
    As you may well be aware, Canonical and BQ unveiled the world's first Ubuntu Tablet, the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition, which also happens to be the first Ubuntu converged device, which users can transform into a full-fledged PC.
