It’s really tough time for a new player to crack the smartphone and tablet space. Windows phones are almost dead and last year we saw both Jolla and Firefox struggling to keep their mobile ambitions alive.

I sat down with Mark Shuttleworth at SCaLE 14x and, among many other things, I asked him about the future of Ubuntu mobile, about how long he will continue to support it. He took some time to gather his thoughts and then said he is fully invested in Ubuntu mobile and will support it for the foreseeable future.

While we do have other open source projects like Plasma Mobile, I think Ubuntu is the closest thing we have to liberate mobile devices from a walled garden.

What do you think?

The Document Foundation today announced the release of LibreOffice (LO) 5.1.  With this release, LO is moving toward a totally reorganized user interface.

In earlier conversations with LibreOffice developers and The Document Foundation whenever I would ask about modernizing the UI they told me that their first priority was to clean up the code they inherited from OpenOffice. And once the codebase is clean they would start to focus in UI.

That day has finally come.

Arch is for those who are willing to invest time in Linux. Because everything has to be configured manually, there is no spoon feeding. You will learn, in the process of using Arch, how the basics of a Linux system work. And once you learn that, everything else becomes easier.

+Ubuntu experts? Is there a bug in bash/auto-completion. Ubuntu 14.04.x sever. Quite annoying any suggestions

What's this? When I hit tab to autocomplete a path or command: it adds '[sudo] password for swapnil: ' instead of autocompletion???

swapnil@uNAS:~$ sudo zfs create ba[sudo] password for swapnil: 

And then the shell freezes. I dared to use Ubuntu as a server, but not very confident.

Hello,

I am working on a story around FreeNAS.I played with ZFS on Arch before but want to give FreeNAS a try. I have some very basic questions. I tried Googling it but didn't find anything so trying here. So I am creating a raid of two hard drives each 4 TB, plus I may throw more drives later:

Q: What if my SSD where FreeNAS was install gets corrupted and I need a re-install how do I reconnect the drives?

With their anti science, religious extremist approach the current GOP leadership is doing the same thing that Islamic extremist did to the middle east and Arab world.

Once the Middle East/Arab world was at the peak of science and technology, a lot of our modern science, mathematics owes a lot to these civilizations, but Muslim extremists destroyed all of that and converted into an extremist world.

Exactly the same phenomenon is happening in the US where are at the peak of science and technology, but religious extremists have hijacked the GOP and are working towards imposing the same laws that guide the Sharia Law; laws that berates women; criminalises homosexuality; treats 'immigrants' as 'kafir'; laws that gives more power to mega corps or 'Emir'; laws that bans science and injects ancient fantasy text into our legal system; where our constitution is trashed... more »

Sadly, the Islamic world failed and succumbed to extremists; the whole civilization is lost.

We can not let that happen to our country. We need to weed out these religious extremists from our political system and establish the separation of the church and the state.

These elections are critical and GOP owned congress has showed us that the only direction they want to drive our nation into is the 16th century.

We can't afford that.___

Good bye, good riddance. That's not a political opinion, albeit I thought her Planned Parenthood stance was depictable. No, my bottom-line problem was that I knew her and covered her career at Lucent and HP. Knowing what I knew of her, I wouldn't trust to organize a bake sale, never mind a major company or our country.

Subsurface-mobile for Android -- first beta

The Subsurface developer team is thrilled to announce the first beta release of our mobile app for Android.

Subsurface-mobile connects to your Subsurface cloud storage account and allows you to access your dive list from your mobile device. You can scroll through your dives, look at dive details and dive profiles, edit dives, even add new dives on your phone or tablet. After an initial sync Subsurface-mobile works offline, so no worries about being on a dive boat and not able to connect to the network - the data will be synced at the next opportunity when you are back within signal range.

Subsurface-mobile also includes the GPS tracking functionality of the old Subsurface companion app which allows you to collect precise GPS fixes for your dive sites.

At this point Subsurface-mobile will be most useful when used together... more »

Subsurface-mobile also includes the GPS tracking functionality of the old Subsurface companion app which allows you to collect precise GPS fixes for your dive sites.

At this point Subsurface-mobile will be most useful when used together with the existing Subsurface desktop application. Most notably, downloading dives from your dive computer is so far not possible from Subsurface-mobile (but that is on our to-do list for at least some classes of dive computers).

In order to try Subsurface mobile on your Android device simply opt in at this link: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/org.subsurfacedivelog.mobile

And don't forget to take a look at the user manual___

I started off as a Gnome user – whether I was using Debian, Fedora or Ubuntu. I switched to Plasma when Unity happened and have been a KDE Plasma user ever since.

As much as I love Plasma, my reliance on email, calendar and contacts is increasing for work. There is almost no scope for any error and Plasma doesn’t have the kind of integration you would want among those three applications.

Also, with more and more of my work moving to the cloud or online services, I find I don’t really need too much customization. All I need is some of the core components.

That’s what led me to give Gnome another try.

It’s really tough time for a new player to crack the smartphone and tablet space. Windows phones are almost dead and last year we saw both Jolla and Firefox struggling to keep their mobile ambitions alive.

I sat down with Mark Shuttleworth at SCaLE 14x and, among many other things, I asked him about the future of Ubuntu mobile, about how long he will continue to support it. He took some time to gather his thoughts and then said he is fully invested in Ubuntu mobile and will support it for the foreseeable future.

While we do have other open source projects like Plasma Mobile, I think Ubuntu is the closest thing we have to liberate mobile devices from a walled garden.
