In partnership with our friends at @kde we are thrilled to be embarking on this new endeavor. The configurability of GNOME paired with the simplicity of KDE - all rolled into a single package. Introducing KNOME, built using QTK3 and Kutter.

It's fine to not be able to articulate your rationale for something (unless you're in a position of authority or you're supposed to be an expert.)

"I just like it", "that's just how I feel" or "I don't know" are perfectly acceptable answers in 90% of situations. Life isn't a debating society.

@elementary OS has a bold new plan for the AppCenter, and to get Linux open source developers PAID.

Let's help them get there. I absolutely love this direction.

This is a nice milestone for two reasons:

1. The build pipeline means we should be able to get at least one ISO refresh spun and tested per month with that month’s updates. Great for hardware support and reducing downloads on new installs.

2. A fresh face on the blog! 😊

Chrome will block video ads that “people find to be particularly disruptive". Conveniently enough, YouTube ads are not so disruptive, so they most probably won't be touched.

A lot of people however are going to get annoyed because of JavaScript.

- Because it breaks scrolling and site navigation.
- Because it rarely makes the site faster
- and often makes the site slower in practical use.
- And often it breaks in a number of browsers, for no good reason.

elementary OS users: we need YOUR help! Yes, YOU specifically. We have a community-run support site at elementaryos.stackexchange.com. However, our small mod team can’t keep up! 😰 If you could take a couple of minutes answering or clarifying questions, it would help immensely. Thanks!

Back on September 14th, I started using on my Nexus 4 as my daily driver.

Nearly 3 months later, I'm back to using my Pixel + Android.

Overall, Ubuntu Touch was a good experience. If we just look at OS-vs-OS, I think I do prefer UT over Android. Very intuitive UI, and things kinda just worked.

App support is much better on Android, but most of what I need has a web equivalent.

Ultimately, the tipping point was the hardware; my Nexus 4 struggles to get a signal in many places.

So... @tbernard and I (mostly Tobias, really) did a thing couple weeks ago for LAS cause we found the conference name to be orthogonal to its goals.

Here's a blog post version of it.

"There is no “Linux” Platform"


Special shootout to @elementary for being the inspiration and case study for it and doing a kickass job all over the place.
