Is Unity 8 Super Fast Or What?

Filed under
Software

Just a few days ago, Unity 8 became available for Ubuntu 13.10. However, it is just an Alpha release and it’s not coming to the ‘stable city’ until Ubuntu 14.xx release.

Now, I am putting those ‘xx’ because it’s not clear if Canonical aim to launch their 14.04 LTS along with a hell-of-a-buggy desktop-environment like Unity 8. So, even if it’s available to install it in Ubuntu 13.10, please DO NOT because you are going to have a huge headache. Yes sir, Unity 8 is currently nothing more than an experimental view of QML phone shell. That has been told, it’s not meant for every-day standard use except for lunatics (like me) who aren’t afraid loosing their software mentality. Long live the Linux world!

My experience so far…

  • letsencrypt support in propellor
    I'm using the reference letsencrypt client. While I've seen complaints that it has a lot of dependencies and is too complicated, it seemed to only need to pull in a few packages, and use only a few megabytes of disk space, and it has fewer options than ls does. So seems fine. (Although it would be nice to have some alternatives packaged in Debian.)
  • New release: usbguard-0.4
    I’m not dead yet. And the project is still alive too. It’s been a while since the last release, so it’s time to do another. The biggest improvements were made to the rule language by introducing the rule conditions and to the CLI by introducing a new command, usbguard, for interacting with a running USBGuard daemon instance and for generating initial policies.
