Interviews

earthweb.com: To most users, KDE 3 is obsolete, replaced two years ago by the KDE 4 series. Yet, many continue to lament the loss of KDE 3.

SUSE

g33q.co.za: On the final day of my series on using KDE4 for seven days I made the bold statement that I would switch from being a Gnome user to KDE4 if I could only find myself the perfect KDE4 distro. Today I start that quest with openSUSE 11.3

standardsandfreedom.net: In previous posts, I had mentioned that I’m using KDE more and more. This is very much true today, but somehow I haven’t entirely migrated to KDE yet. I’m of course talking about the KDE 4 branch.

g33q.co.za: Day 6 is done. Today I wanted to customise my desktop a bit, but I will do that tomorrow. I had a non KDE related issue that I want to share – it’s Mandriva related, and then there are some comments on Kmail, Konsole and keyboard shortcuts in KDE vs Compiz – specifically switching desktops.

My first week on KDE, part 1

Filed under
KDE

nancib.wordpress: Last month I mentioned that I was looking at switching my desktop environment (DE) from GNOME to KDE and I was considering a move away from Ubuntu completely.

Build Your Own Open-Source SmartWatch

If you’re not up for spending your money on one of the less advanced smart watch models, you may want to check out maker Jonathan Cook’s DIY Open-Source SmartWatch, part of which is 3D printed, something the prognosticators of future tech surely didn’t forecast. Cook shared instructions for making his SmartWatch on the webzine “Make:” and also on his own website, DoNothingBox. You can download the STL files on the DNB site, too. For around $125 or less you can make your own smart phone and you can customize it, something that you wouldn’t be able to do with a store-bought version. Read more

Completely open source, high-end laptop gets closer to reality

If you've wanted a laptop where all the software is free and open source (FOSS), you've usually had to settle for mediocre hardware. Even FOSS champion Richard Stallman is making do with a ThinkPad that's several years old. At last, though, it looks like you won't have to compromise your ideology for the sake of keeping up with the Joneses. Purism has successfully crowdfunded the Librem 15, a portable PC that combines modern parts (such as a 3.4GHz Core i7 and an optional 4K display) with software that's accessible from head to toe. The operating system (a variant of Trisquel GNU/Linux), hardware drivers and included apps are all free and open -- Purism is even trying to loosen up the BIOS and firmware. Read more

Your simple guide to Open Source technology

What does this mean in practice? First and foremost, it means that unlike traditional software development that is done behind closed doors and with the windows barred and by a small team, Open Source software development by its nature has many eye balls on it all of the time. Anyone can submit bug fixes or improvements and this generally translates into fixes and improvements happening at a much faster rate. Security vulnerabilities and exploits are usually fixed quickly too, which is good for everyone. Read more
