ericsbinaryworld.com: So I’ve used KDE for about a work week. During that time I’ve pretty much gone to using the KDE versions of all my programs except Konqueror.

HAMMER2 has shipped in DragonFlyBSD since version 3.8.0 but is not considered production ready. Read more

Google’s Project Ara Open Source Smartphone to Debut in Puerto Rico This Year

Google sold Motorola to Lenovo, but retained the Advanced Research and Projects (ATAP) R&D group that runs the project. ATAP recently showed off a second generation prototype of the Ara phone, and earlier this month, Google announced plans to launch a 2015 pilot program in Puerto Rico.

The timing seems right, as the Android smartphone scene is looking a bit moribund compared to hot-ticket technologies like wearables, drones, and home automation. Read more
