This got me thinking what was it that got me interested in Technology.

Just talk

Smartphones are computers, they have the same processing power as devices from a few years back, decent battery lives, complete Operating systems which will sit happily on desktop PC's if you let them. However when we get into the office or home, we put them down and head for the keyboard..

Filed under
Just talk

Ces 2012 is all but over and there have been a few products which stood out, especially Lenovo getting fingers into everything from phones to TVs.

While many of the innovations were not direct Linux products as they were being showcased on Windows I think this sort of show does point a path where the innovation in Linux has to happen if it is going to stay relevant.

I'd like to make time for switching my main system but it is not there yet. What I plan to do is however use Linux on my laptop and get used to it this way. While it will take longer than a radical switch, it is the best I can do right now. Eventually though, I'd like to run all but one system on Linux and not Windows.

5 Surprising Reasons Behind The GNOME Resurgence

When the team behind GNOME came out with GNOME 3, which included the infamous GNOME Shell, the most popular desktop environment of the time saw a sharp decrease in users. And honestly, that trend is pretty easy to explain. When GNOME 3 initially came out, it was incomplete, buggy, and foreign. The concepts behind GNOME Shell were never before seen on a desktop system, and lots of users who were used to panels/taskbars and menus didn’t like the rather dramatic changes. Read more
