I am a student at the University of Tennessee, conducting a survey for one of my classes. The point of this survey is to find out why people use the OS that they do, and hopefully I can gather evidence to show what I found. I chose this sub among others because of its' users knowledge of their OS. I would greatly appreciate it if you took the time to fill out this survey.
Thanks a lot!submitted by /u/creed10
GNOME is helping you to improve security by wiping away that breadcrumb trail. Instead of having to manage these issues in various places such as display settings, file manager, and location settings, the developers of GNOME put these security-centric settings in one location: the GNOME Privacy tool.
The European Commission has been persuaded by lobbyists to change its position on standards to permit the use of FRAND license terms for patents applicable to technologies within those standards. This is a massive mistake that will harm innovation by chilling open source community engagement.
development of the next GNOME release, 3.22, has started, and the
first snapshot, 3.21.1, is now available. This is a very early snapshot,
and not too much has landed yet; I expect that to change soon.
To compile GNOME 3.21.1, you can use the jhbuild  modulesets 
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).
Chromium OS for SBCs has been released in v0.5 for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. The Pine64 appears to be next up, with other hacker SBCs waiting in line.
The “Chromium OS for Single Board Computers” project, which is taking the open source Chromium OS progenitor of Chrome OS, and tuning it for SBCs, released v0.5 for the Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3. This is the first official release for the RPi 3.
Casio deserves a lot of credit for reshaping Android Wear into an original and unique new product, something I wasn’t sure was possible. It overcomes many of the drawbacks of smartwatches while making total sense as a product in its category; if you’re in the market for a hiking watch that also works as a smartwatch, and you use an Android phone, I think you’ll be very happy with what Casio’s produced. If you’re not looking specifically for a hiking smartwatch? Maybe wait and see if Casio ever makes a G-Shock smartwatch, because this one really isn’t the sort of thing you’ll want to wear every day.
I'm going to keep this short because most of what I have to say is detailed in the blog post.
I've been using Linux for a while, and it's been a painfully blissful journey. I decided to write a post about it, and it was so much fun to take a trip down memory lane and write about the joys and pains of Linux. I wrote about the first time I tried Linux, all my failed attempts at things, and where I am now with Linux. I'd love to keep writing about my experience(s) with Linux, because I realized I'm more passionate about it than I thought, and it's a really, really fun topic to write about
Here's a link to the post, hosted at Medium. I didn't take it too seriously, so if it's too "casual," apologies.
The article is not really informative in any way, it's more a recount of my history with Linux, so if you were expecting to learn something from the post, sorry to disappoint.
Thanks! I'd love to hear feedback, as I plan to continue writing on this topic!submitted by /u/r3djak
