Fedora will be holding an IPv6 Test Day tomorrow, to test the readiness of both the Fedora distribution and project sites for IPv6. View this as an opportunity to contribute to Fedora while learning about IPv6 in real time from smart cookies who actually know what they’re talking about. I know that’s what I’m going to do. See you all tomorrow in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC!

Linux

advogato.org: Anyone who's been following anything I've written lately may be under the impression that I dislike EFI. They'd be entirely correct. It's an awful thing and I've lost far too much of my life to it. But there is something else EFI gives us.

Microsoft

Linux

datamation.com: How many times have we as desktop Linux users been asked if this is the "year of the Linux desktop?" Too many times I'd imagine.

Linux

computing.co.uk: Version 15 of Red Hat's community project Linux distribution Fedora showed great stability, and it was simple to add applications onto the platform. We had no problem with hardware drivers and the new GNOME 3 GUI was easy to use, even though initially we did seem to be blundering about.

Mageia 1 – A new distro and a new DE experience for me.

openbytes.wordpress: In 2008 I tried a well known distro called Mandriva, even back then the bar was set pretty high for what you could expect out of the box from Linux. Suffice to say it failed me.

KDE and Akademy

  • Zanshin 0.2.2 transition release
    Three years, five months and eleven days... yes, it's the elapsed time since our last release announcement. But don't despair! We're still alive and kicking. We've been busy working on our next release which is much more ambitious than the previous one. As part of this future release, we had to adjust a bit how we store some information. That is why today we are announcing a transitional minor release. Behold Zanshin 0.2.2!
  • All the yummies at Akademy 2015
  • Fruits of Akademy
    For the second time I had the chance to attend Akademy, this time in cold and rainy La Coruña. It has been a week of interesting talks, good food (except for one Tortilla incident), and hacking. [...] KRunner History is Back Supposedly this was one of the reason I still saw quite a few people running Plasma 4 during the conference but now there’s no more reason not to do the switch! ;)
