I've wanted to blog about this for a while. So, though I'm terrible at creating video reviews, I'm still going to do it, rather than procrastinate every day.

 

In this video, the emphasis is on using Free Software (GNOME in particular) tools, with which soon you should be able serve the needs for Desktop/Laptop, and as well as a Tablet.

The video also touches a bit on Touchpad Gestures.

I've been trying to catch up on my reading list (Thanks to rss2email, now I can hold the list longer, than just marking all as read). And one item from last year's end worth spending time was Thunderbird.

Device Mapper Multipath status in Debian

Compulsory:

For Debian Jessie, the multipath support relied on sysvinit scripts. So, if you were using systemd, the level of testing would have been minimal.

At DebConf15, I got to meet many people whom I'd worked with, over emails, over the years. With every person, my ask was to use the SAN Storage stack in a test environement, and report bugs early. Not after the next release. This applies also to the usual downstream distribution projects.

If you have a modern laptop, you must be having a touchpad with multitouch capability, in hardware. But on the software front, it must be crap.

And if you've always craved for having support for those multitouch gestures, you must have been following the X/Wayland development.

When I bought my Lenovo Yoga 2 13, I had great plans. I wanted a device, that I could use both, as a laptop, and also as a tablet. The path hasn't been easy. But then, no path in Free Software against Freedom and Privacy has been easy. The choice is left to us, the users.
