What's wrong with Linux desktop?

I believe Linux desktops needs to up their ante when compared with Android, Chrome OS, Mac OS X and even Windows.

1: We need reliable and stable features which allows system wide search - similar to Apple Spotlight. Plasma has it but it's very very unusable in my experience.
2: Desktop search integrated with online services where I can configure sources such as Google, YouTube, Wikipedia (not a 'what-the-hell-it-is' solution like Dash)
3: Better notifications: I can't take action from notifications. I should be able to 'open' a mail, reply to it or trash a new mail right from notification.
4: Some common tool for software management across OSes, so Linux users can benefit from consistency (example Gnome Software)
5: Plasma needs a lot of work in terms of integrating services like... more »

Linux and open source is driven by passionate people who write best-of-breed software and then release the code to the public so anyone can use it, without any strings attached. (Well, there is one string attached and that’s licence.)

Who are these people? These heroes of the Linux world, whose work affects all of us every day. Allow me to introduce you.

Following the trend of privacy-respecting products and projects coming out of Europe (e.g., ownCloud, Kolab, and Plasma Mobile), German firm struktur AG has started a Kickstarter project called Spreedbox, which aims to offer a secure audio video conferencing service. According to the project page, “The Spreedbox is a unique device for secure audio/video conferencing, text and video messaging and file sharing. The Spreedbox is your own conferencing, meeting and file exchange service on the Internet and puts the control and security of your data into your own hands.”

The company is trying to raise over $25,000 for the project. (At the time this story was written, they had raised $9,200 with 25 more days to go.)

Linux pretty much owns modern computing. Everything from mighty supercomputers to puny routers run on Linux -- in many cases users aren't even aware they're using Linux.

One area where Linux clearly dominates the consumer space is smartphones.

Yesterday we had movers. Among them were two Ukrainian kids who came to US for work. The moment they saw my T-Shirt, they said Linux. I was shocked. I asked if they knew Linux. They both said 'of course' and started asking dozens of questions.

Awesome.

The KDE Community is known for its commitment to free and open source software and sticking to standards. This extremely versatile community has produced software like KDE Plasma desktop, Calligra Office Suite, Krita, and much more. Its community members have created successful projects (for example, ownCloud, created by Frank Karlitschek, has evolved as a fully funded company).

The community is also known for being ahead of its time. The current release of its desktop, aptly called Plasma, embraced convergence before Canonical started talking about it. And they had a Plasma Mobile project before Ubuntu Phone came along. Renowned KDE developer Aaron Seigo also tried to bring a Plasma powered tablet to the market, but it did not materialize. Until now.

Today, during the Akademy event, the KDE Community announced Plasma Mobile project. It's a Free (as in Freedom and beer), user-friendly, privacy-enabling and customizable platform for mobile devices. Plasma Mobile claims to be developed in an open process, and considering the community behind it, I don't doubt it.___

Where are the ammosexuals now? They wanted everyone to be equipped with guns, now after that incident at one training centre where an idiot fired his weapon and was asked to leave and this yet another murder by gun at Lafayette, why are we NOT calling for taking guns away from mentally sick folks? Why are we not talking about any gun control? Why is poor interpretation of 2nd Amendment more important than lives of fellow Americans? Then it's an 'amendment'...you know what an amendment is, right?

Geeks like to think that they can ignore politics, you can leave politics alone, but politics won't leave you alone. - RMS

And that is why I take interest in politics, because it dictates our lives and I can't leave fundamentalists or 'conservatives' to dictate my life. So shouldn't you. I am NOT liberal, I am a futurist - someone who envisions a brighter, safer, peaceful and 'equal' future and present for everyone.

Get involved, in politics.

Time for India to become leading FLOSS contributor?
India has companies like TCS, Tech Mahindra, Infosys, HCL Technologies, Wipro, etc. that offer outsourcing for every kind of software related job. Many tech giants, including Microsoft, Google and Intel have their R&D facilities there. The country produces a huge number of engineering students (along with doctors and scientists) who are readily available for to work for multinational corporations.

However, the country is nowhere to be seen in the global software development stage when it comes to innovation and entrepreneurship. Beyond Hotmail, I don’t recall any major product or project that originated in India.

Call them.

My email spam situation seems to be all good.

But just to annoy me, we've had two calls today from the IRS phone scam (google "IRS phone scam" to get some news on it).

I wonder why those things are so hard to crack down on.  Phone companies really don't even check ID when you get a phone number? They sure wanted to get my credit history when I opened a line, but some low-life scammers who try to fool people can get one?

Anyway, if anybody wants to talk with the "federal agent" about their tax situation and how you want to give them money over the phone, the number is (276) 258-6019. 

Scammers like that piss me off. ___Call them.

Today I found that Facebook gives more control to people than Google+. Here I made some posts public, by mistake and wanted to edit and change sharing restricted to certain groups, I couldn't.

Also once you create a collection you can't change with whom it's shared; can't make it private. It's etched in stone. On FB I can change who can see a post anytime. Another great feature that I like in Facebook is that you can make a post shared with your 'circles' yet still choose a few people who should not see it. I use it all the time when posting political stuff there and hide them from extended family. 

That's why I suggest ALWAYS use competing products so that you are well aware of the features missing from yours. That's why I opted to buy an iOS device and also use Mac OS X, as it gives me a much broader... more »

The Washington Post keeps talking #infosec nonsense.

You know, wishing the world were flat doesn't make it so. To quote Bruce Schneier:
"We have one infrastructure. We can't choose a world where the US gets to spy and the Chinese don't. We get to choose a world where everyone can spy, or a world where no one can spy. We can be secure from everyone, or vulnerable to anyone. And I'm tired of us choosing surveillance over security."

While individuals, governments and organizations continue to lose billions of dollars in damages due to security holes in Microsoft Windows (the latest victim was the infamous Hacker Team), Linux remains a secure choice for these customers. No software is bug free, but unlike Mac OS X or Windows, when the security holes are discovered they are patched in matter of hours or days and not months or years.

6: Better management of third party software - managing PPA is a mess on Ubuntu based systems and SUSE lacks an OS level integration with awesome OBS.

I concur, those Americans who never lived abroad of left the country have no idea what 'quality' of life means. Something 'developed' European countries take for granted. I wish more American get out of their bubbles...you don't live to work so you can pay mortgage; you work so you can enjoy life...that's the difference between Europe and US.

From the article: The Swiss work hard, but they have a strong work-life balance. According to data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the average Swiss worker earned the equivalent of $91,574 a year in 2013, while the average American worker earned only $55,708. But the real story is that the average American had to work 219 hours more per year for this lesser salary.

I wish more American get out of their bubbles...you don't live to work so you can pay mortgage; you work so you can enjoy life...that's the difference between Europe and US.

From the article: The Swiss work hard, but they have a strong work-life balance. According to data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the average Swiss worker earned the equivalent of $91,574 a year in 2013, while the average American worker earned only $55,708. But the real story is that the average American had to work 219 hours more per year for this lesser salary.

Which brings us to lunch. In Switzerland, you don't arrive to a meeting late, but you also don't leave for your lunch break a second past noon. If it's summer, jumping into the lake to swim with the swans is an acceptable way to spend your lunch hour. If you eat a sandwich at your desk, people will scold you. I learned this the hard way.___

Having lived in Europe, I agree.

From the article: The weather in Washington, D.C., and  Berlin, Germany, has been pretty similar recently. There is one striking difference between the two capitals, though: Whereas many Americans would probably never consider living or working in buildings without air conditioning, many Germans think that life without climate control is far superior.

The divide isn't limited to Berlin and D.C.: In fact, many Europeans visiting the U.S. frequently complain about the "freezing cold" temperatures inside buses or hotels. American tourists on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, however, have been left stunned by Europeans' ability to cope with heat, even at work spaces or in their private homes.

If this was a Linux exploit it'd have a snappy name, logo and 20 media articles about it.
Since it's a Windows exploit it passes by relatively quietly.

With 'free' education and 'well-educated' Americans, McDonalds and Walmart won't get $5 hour slaves. Super expensive education is very much part of this power system.

Overall, America’s per capita wealth, health and education measures are mediocre for a highly industrialized nation. Well-being metrics, perceptions of corruption, quality and cost of basic services, are sliding, too. Healthcare and education spending are funding bloated administrations even while human outcomes sink, the authors say.
