Malcolm Senior, director of informatics at the Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust, has been writing about the prospect of open source in the NHS.
The comments from Senior come a year after the announcement that Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust had signed a contract to implement the UK's first open source electronic patient record.
Senior states that the open source approach in the NHS is not new, in fact the NHS has been doing it since the early 80's.
Cinnamon Developers Working to Improve Loading Times for the Desktop
The Linux Mint developers are also working on the Cinammon desktop environment, so the distribution is not their entire focus. They are now trying to make it load faster and they say they already had some success.
Plasma 5 with KDE Telepathy 0.9
While every effort in KDE Telepathy went to the Qt5/KDE Frameworks 5 porting and KAccounts migration, there are still distros/users that have KDE Telepathy 0.9 (the kde4 one) running in Plasma 5 session. All the applications of KDE Telepathy work just fine, the only problem are the Plasma applets, those are totally incompatible.
So for those cases I've created a small Plasma 5 applet which works with KDE Telepathy 0.9. It can bring your accounts online or offline or open the contact list and accounts settings, just as you're used to and the only dependency is TelepathyQt5. However because of changes in Plasma 5 stuff, it's not perfect.
