GNOME Live ISO Overview/Review

The default desktop is no different from GNOME 3.0 and minimalistic but it does have a right click functionality which allows one to :-

* Change Desktop settings (gnome-control-center)
* Change wallpaper
* Curiously, the much hated, "Universal Access" settings has been removed from the top panel.

openSUSE 13.1, M4 features GNOME Version 3.9.1 and openSUSE 13.1 will be called "Bottle" . Here is a screenshot of GNOME settings "Details" which can be invoked using command "gnome-control-center" and navigating to "Details".

The Details application can be used to:-

* View System info like openSUSE and GNOME versions, System architecture etc.
* Set default applications for mail, browser, calendar, video, audio and images.
* Set default actions for various removable media like CD, DVD, USB etc.

FSFE: ‘German public sector a digital laggard’

With their lacklustre approach to free software, German public services remain behind other European member states, says the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). When asked, the current governing parties’ say they support free software, but their statements are contradicted by the lack of action, the advocacy group says. In early September, the FSFE published its analysis of the free software policies put forward by the main political parties on the ballot, in preparation for Germany’s parliamentary elections on 24 September. This analysis (in German) is far more detailed than an earlier report generated by the Digital-O-Mat, a web portal set up to focus on political parties’ positions on 12 digital topics.
