Ubuntu 16.04 Brings More Privacy and Big Changes to the Desktop

Filed under
Reviews
Ubuntu

The release of Ubuntu 16.04 last week is good news for computer users who are upset over the recent development of Microsoft turning Windows into an operating system that is essentially spyware. As an open-source Linux distribution, Ubuntu is a great operating system for users concerned about privacy.

This marks the 24th release of the Ubuntu operating system, which has become perhaps the most popular Linux distribution in the world. Ubuntu 16.04 — codenamed Xenial Xerus — is also the sixth Long Term Support (LTS) release, meaning it will receive free security updates and support for five years. Canonical — the UK software company which sponsors Ubuntu — has continued to show its commitment to providing a solid, smooth, reliable, open-source operating system for the desktop even while working toward convergence of the desktop, phone, and tablet into one seamless operating system.

  • Ubuntu 16.04 Makes Ubuntu Exciting Again

    Ubuntu hasn’t had the best reputation among Linux users over the past few years–with some even going so far as to call it “boring”.

  • Important 20 Tweaks/Things To Do After Install Of Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus

    Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial is an exciting release for many users who prefer to use LTS version, it has new application packages and features. Canonical is trying to improve Ubuntu by time and seems they are succeeding, unlike previous releases this release got some new features and improvements which I had shared in previous post. Unity 8 with Mir is not replaced yet but it will be available for testing in 16.04 Xenial, Unity 7.4 is much improved, faster, responsive and many other things for release info checkout this post. It's been a tradition now that whenever a new Ubuntu version come out users look forward to tweak it or smooth some rough edges and somehow to make their experience much better with Ubuntu, I am not trying to say Ubuntu isn't perfect 'for sure it is' but a user like me may need some other things to be done after a fresh install and make it much better than any other OS available out there. Everything shared below is tested and works fine, so hopefully you won't get any problem with them and if you encounter any problem feel free to ask. Lets start .....

Aquaris M10 HD Ubuntu Edition review

Filed under

Ubuntu

A few months ago when the Aquaris M10 with Ubuntu was announced I was very excited. First of all the first device with convergence, a dream of Canonical even before Microsoft told a word about "one (scaled down) Windows". But also the first (commercial) tablet with the Linux kernel. And of course an ARM chip! We all know what happened to WinRT, but there is one difference here. It's ubuntu. They have the source of 99% of the packages people use + they have official ports to ARM already available! (I even use those to host this blog) So with XMir it is able to run all those apps.

    It offers a convenient, KF5 and Qt5-based GUI coupled with a QML image view to browse, view, and download images hosted in two of the most famous Danbooru boards (konachan.com and yande.re).
  • A KMail Breakthrough.
    This tells the story of how I finally managed a successful transfer of email data from KMail version 1.13.6 to version 4.11.5. It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
