Linux is on a collision course with success, and that success is measured by every new Linux Desktop User we gain. Join us in our effort to make Linux the obvious choice for millions of desktop users.

Linux is at a crucial point in history...it could be called the perfect storm of opportunity and circumstance. Microsoft is floundering with their next generation operating system, codename Longhorn. With the cost of hardware plummeting, the retail price of Windows XP, and with additional anti-virus and firewall software factored in; the cost can equal over a third of the total computer investment. That is ridiculous!

Linux has a Golden Opportunity here and we need to take advantage of it. There are only a few things holding Linux back from gaining a substantial share of the desktop market. This website is devoted to concentrating on the most important factor in this equation- software.

For example, we still lack a good all-around accounting program for business...a GPL program. For the want of one or two software programs of this nature, people remain chained to Microsoft Windows.

Lobby4Linux.com is going to make every effort to change this. We do not have much time to do it. We need your help and participation.

Visit lobby4linux.

Stay tuned for an indepth exclusive interview with the founder and creator of lobby4inux in the upcoming days.

GNOME News

  • gnome-boxes: Coder’s log
    So another two weeks have passed and it’s time to sum things up and reflect a little on the struggles and accomplishments that have marked this time period, which was quite a bumpy ride compared to the others, but definitely more exciting.
  • GNOME Keysign 0.6
    It’s been a while since I reported on GNOME Keysign. The last few releases have been exciting, because they introduced nice features which I have been waiting long for getting around to implement them.
  • Testing for Usability
    I recently came across a copy of Web Redesign 2.0: Workflow That Works (book, 2005) by Goto and Cotler. The book includes a chapter on "Testing for Usability" which is brief but informative. The authors comment that many websites are redesigned because customers want to add new feature or want to drive more traffic to the website. But they rarely ask the important questions: "How easy is it to use our website?" "How easily can visitors get to the information they want and need?" and "How easily does the website 'lead' visitors to do what you want them to do?" (That last question is interesting for certain markets, for example.)

SUSE Leftovers

  • Newest Tumbleweed snapshot updates KDE Applications
    The latest openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshot has updated KDE Applications in the repositories to version 16.04.3. Snapshot 20160724 had a considerably large amount of package updates for Tumbleweed KDE users, but other updates in the snapshot included updates to kiwi-config-openSUSE, Libzypp to version 16.1.3, yast2-installation to version 3.1.202 and Kernel-firmware to 2016071
  • Highlights of YaST development sprint 22
    openSUSE Conference’16, Hackweek 14 and the various SUSE internal workshops are over. So it’s time for the YaST team to go back to usual three-weeks-long development sprints… and with new sprints come new public reports! With Leap 42.2 in Alpha phase and SLE12-SP2 in Beta phase our focus is on bugs fixing, so we don’t have as much fancy stuff to show in this report. Still, here you are some bits you could find interesting.
