This entry is somewhat mis-titled. What I did with xmodmap wasn't exactly fun. Maybe mildly rewarding, finally. But also a bit perturbing.

Subject: KDE Ships March Updates to Plasma Workspaces, Applications and Platform

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Today KDE released updates for its Workspaces, Applications, and Development Platform. These updates are the first in a series of monthly stabilization updates to the 4.8 series. 4.8.1 updates bring many bugfixes and translation updates on top of the latest edition in the 4.8 series and are recommended updates for everyone running 4.8.0 or earlier versions. As the release only contains bugfixes and translation updates, it will be a safe and pleasant update for everyone. KDE’s software is already translated into more than 55 languages, with more to come. The December updates contain many performance improvements and bugfixes for applications using the Nepomuk semantic framework.read more

Subject: Linux Netbook Sales: Suffering From More Market Shrinkage?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The VAR Guy thinks Linux Netbooks may have fallen into a pool filled with chilly water. The apparent result: Continued market shrinkage. Alas, The VAR Guy doesn’t have official market data to share. But three pieces of circumstantial evidence suggest the Linux Netbook market continues to decline in North America while the Apple iPad and tablets continue to rise.

Subject: TLWIR 34: Africa Embraces Free Software

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I am proud to be a member of the Free Software community. I have found it to be a very open, and very tolerant, community that believes deeply in the South African concept of Ubuntu: the allegiance of people to one another. I find the tenets of the Free Software to be in sharp contrast to the uncivil discourse that dominates so much of modern society. Free Software has a lot to teach the world in terms of how we can all live together, and share our world in peace. In late March 2012, a large Free Software conference will take place in Abuja, Nigeria. Windows 8 has been generating a lot of buzz lately. Will Windows 8 drive disgruntled computer users to GNU/Linux? Extreme Tech writer Matthew Murray thinks so. Designer Marco Alici has used Blender to create a case design for the Raspberry Pi. The case can be created with a 3-D printer.

Microsoft Windows to Go for Windows 8 is great idea, but instead of saving a desktop image to a USB stick, why not make the connection to the cloud instead? It's such an easy link, it's hard to believe Microsoft missed it.

Here's a case to study for everybody who cares about Free Software teaching, open learning and open publishing: the Free Technology Academy (FTA) publishes online with open licenses all its Linux/FOss related courseware. Everybody can download them for free, no questions asked. TradePub gave the links to such downloads ONLY to people who provided personal information, then reused for advertising, profiling and other purposes. What to do? Please support the FTA formal request to stop such practices
