If you don’t like what Google’s doing with Android, you can always make your own version of it. That’s what OnePlus did after it cut ties with Cyanogen.

The result is a version of Android that looks like it’s stock, with useful, well-integrated extra features.

Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) for the Unix shell

Filed under
Interviews
OSS

When I first got involved in Unix and open source, I was choosing a pseudonym for a little podcast that I do called GNU World Order. I naively thought that in a community that values technology and, frequently, speculative fiction, the name "Klaatu" would be a quaintly obscure reference to my favorite movies.

The same container can run on a production server and the developer’s MacBook (with a lightweight virtual machine). Development environments can be distributed across multiple systems without anyone having to worry about having the right software versions. The containers can be pushed to dedicated servers, cloud servers, virtual servers, or any other instance of Linux.

Librem 13 Free Software Laptop Nears Funding Goals, After Self-Funding

Filed under
OSS

In the few times I've looked at the Librem 13 crowd-funding campaign, it didn't look like it would make its crowd-funded goal of $250k... Even with the campaign being extended on Crowd Supply. However, in the past few days it shot up sharply towards its goal.

It turns out that it looks like the Librem 13 is being self-funded by Todd Weaver, the CEO of Purism, in order to meet their goal with the crowd-funded campaign ending on 17 September.
