Task managers on mobile: daydreaming about new possible approaches

Filed under
KDE

With my previous post about killing the back button I got a some scepticism about it from some users, but what was common in all those feedbacks was the approach to manage different apps: yes killing the back button breaks some things, but I wrote it mainly to introduce the real idea: new approaches to task managing on mobile devices.

With the KDE 4 stack effectively being unmaintained now and the newly-released Plasma 5.5 being in good shape stability wise, Arch packagers are dropping Plasma 4 and related KDE 4 code. They recommend any remaining KDE 4 users to upgrade as soon as possible or switch to a maintained desktop.

User Editorial: A different approach to calculating the popularity of Linux gaming on Steam

Now that the monthly Steam statistics are out again, we can see that the result has increased slightly from last month, we are back up to 0.90% from 0.85%. While that is a positive sign, we are again looking at a number below 1% this month. As has been previously pointed out there are a few flaws with the Steam statistics, such as that users of the Big Picture Mode do not get the survey at all. There are also likely a few flaws we don't know about. Still, we can safely assume that the Steam Hardware Survey isn't completely lying either: Linux usage might be off by a bit, but if it says below 1%, it is rather unlikely that the real numbers are for example above 2%. It is a statistic, and we have to treat it like a statistic, that gives us an indication of the Linux market share on Steam. An increase likely means a larger market share and a decrease a smaller market share. A fair point that has been made, however, that the amount of Steam users has been increasing over time. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume the number of Linux Steam users has increased as well. The question is: How did Steam grow? Read more
