Reddit: Intel HD Graphics Bay Trail unsupported?

Thursday 7th of August 2014 07:53:28 AM

Sorry if this is the wrong place but I'm not even asking for help anymore...

So I got a cheap 400€ netbook which is nice, it has a fanless passively cooled Pentium N3530 CPU with Intel HD Graphics Bay Trail and after installing Ubuntu (I also tried other distros) I noticed some problems. Horrible 3D performance. Lots of screen tearing. Spent two weeks trying to fix the tearing issue and every solution I saw didn't work for me. So since it also has bad 3D performance and it's fairly new and only available on budget-priced passively cooled x86 tablets and netbooks this leads me to the conclusion that there is no driver support.

Is this true? Is there any place I can tell about this to the developers of the Intel drivers so someday there might be support? Because on Windows I don't have any problems and don't really want to switch to it.

TuxMachines: China Issues Ban On iPad, MacBook Pro, And Other Apple Products For Government Use

Thursday 7th of August 2014 07:41:36 AM

China seems to be on a mission to isolate itself from the world, at least in terms of technology. After banning Windows 8 on government PCs and raiding several of Microsoft's offices in China as part of an anti-trust investigation, Chinese officials have now prohibited to purchase of several Apple products for government use.

Reportedly, the list of banned Apple products include the iPad, iPad Mini, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and half a dozen other items, all of which were left off of a final government procurement list distributed in July. Interestingly, they appeared on the same list in draft form just a month ago. It's no surprise really, when you consider the Chinese state media already declared the iPhone a "threat to national security."

Alfresco Raises A Fresh $45M To Fuel Open-Source Enterprise Content Management

Alfresco, an open source, enterprise content management startup, is today announcing a new round of funding of $45 million — a Series D round that is more than twice as big as all of its previous rounds put together. The UK-based company competes against legacy services like Documentum (which was co-founded by one of Alfresco’s co-founders, John Newton) and Sharepoint to help large organisations manage their disparate document storage both in the cloud and on-premises, and also offer versioning control and other compliance requirements across mobile, PC and other devices. Alfresco will use the new funding to step its business up a gear, with new sales and marketing efforts, and moves into more cloud-based services that could see it competing more directly also against the likes of Dropbox, Box and Huddle.

HandyLinux 1.6.1 Is a Linux Distro with a Windows Vibe

HandyLinux is a newer operating system and its developers have tried to provide a clear and familiar desktop interface. It might feel like it has a Windows 8 vibe, which is probably an effect of the theme used, but the OS is actually quite interesting. One of the most interesting aspects of the distribution is the menu launcher, which is quite odd. It opens a new window with all the applications and the user has to choose from there on. It's definitely something different from the norm. Read more

New Human Interface Guidelines for GNOME and GTK+

I’ve recently been hard at work on a new and updated version of the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines, and am pleased to announce that this will be ready for the upcoming 3.14 release. Over recent years, application design has evolved a huge amount. The web and native applications have become increasingly similar, and new design patterns have become the norm. During that period, those of use in the GNOME Design Team have worked with developers to expand the range of GTK+’s capabilities, and the result is a much more modern toolkit. Read more
