The advertiser is a company called Open Mobile Platform, founded just last month. The company is pitching the Linux-based system as something for large enterprises and privacy wonks who are seeking "trusted" mobile solutions.

It will initially be offered in Russian to meet local demands and regulatory requirements before being pitched overseas.

The operating system is reportedly built on top of the Sailfish OS, a production of Finnish company Jolla, which was formed by former Nokia engineers.

  • Touch on Linux is a little Touchy

    Before you come bashing at me saying “East or West, Keyboard is the best” or “Command Line! Command Line! Command Line!”, I just want to interate here – YES, keyboard is very important for productive tasks. But what about when you just want to use your hybrid device (which are slowly starting to dominate the market) to read a book? Or watch a movie? Or do some GUI based task – like even editing a video (which is a fairly heavy task but can be an excellent use case for touch based interaction)? Yes, Linux is, in my humble opinon, much more flexible than Windows when it comes to doing non-touch tasks like coding, or writing documents (which is exactly why inspite of all that Windows-praising, I am typing this on LibreOffice in Ubuntu), but let us not forget, touch is slowly but steadily becoming the future of interacting with our personal devices. Maybe it will never be the most productive way of doing so, but it sure is the most natural way of doing that. I think Linux should not find itself late to the party of touch-based interaction.

Exploring AryaLinux

Linux
  • Linux To Try: AryaLinux

    AryaLinux is a source-based Linux distribution inspired by LFS/BLFS. AryaLinux use bash scripts for building the entire distribution ground up. As of now, AryaLinux has Mate and XFCE spins as the supported desktop environments but support for other desktops is in progress.

    One might wonder what might be the need to compile an Operating system from scratch and not use an existing one, especially since there are hundreds of thousands of Linux and their variants out there and there are doing a great job.

Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition review

The Meizu Pro 5 is the latest flagship smartphone to run on Canonical’s Ubuntu operating system. Ubuntu is designed to work across all device types – including mobile, tablets, convertibles and desktops – using a common core code. This is similar to Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile. However, unlike Microsoft’s code, Ubuntu is totally open source and has largely been developed and improved by the desktop OS’s millions-strong user base. This means the OS is capable of evolving and changing at a great pace and has update cycles that would make most sysadmins weep. Read more
