A federal court upholds the GPL! Ubuntu arrives in the Windows Store, Telegram enables voice calls on Linux, and somebody drowns a Raspberry Pi.

- It’s not in the store yet
- Maybe, one day, I’ll be able to test this Linux Subsystem for Windows thing
- They really really want to turn Win10 into the allinone devel platform.
- Okay, I’m looking for a silver lining here (outside of the obvious one).
- Will game developers be able to use the WSL to test the Linux versions of their games in Windows, and have the results be reliable?
- Because that is a use case I’d very much like to see.
- Well, it’s THE use case I’d like to see.
- Well, don’t set your hopes too high because it’s not going to happen
- LSW is targeted for development and devops stuff, the exact stuff Windows is very bad at
- Video games on Windows? Yeah, they already got that.
- That’s cute, Discord is getting video chat later this year.
- Telegram already had calls in their mobile version, makes sense.
- Now they’ve decided to bring it to the desktop version.
- They do keep bringing up how good the audio quality is, and the AI backing that ensures a reliable sound quality all around based on your bandwidth.
- The opposite would be rather worrisome.
- Hancom used Ghostscript in a project.
- Hancom never released the source.
- Hancom didn’t even pay the licensing fee.
- Hancom reported $86.3 million in revenue in 2015.
- The enforceability of open source licenses like the GNU GPL has long been an open legal question.
- Hancom issued a motion to dismiss the case on the grounds that the company didn’t sign anything.
- Judge Corley told them to GTFO and STFU.
- Short story long, they gonna get sued.
- This is step one. A good step, nonetheless, but just the one.
- Intel finally walked to the back of the warehouse and dusted off the i9.
- Ok, cool, it’s a CPU.
- If it’s not overpriced (you know, targeted at “””enthusiasts”””), I’ll buy one in 2020
- This is Intel we’re talking about.
- If they’re priced below €500 or even €750 for that matter, I’d be very surprised.
- What I meant is something around $350 which is how much I paid for a high end i7
- *rubs eyes* Is, is this competition?
- I mean they have to do something since the R7 series straight-up nomed Intel’s VM and rendering market.
- Where was this in 2012!!
- No! Where was this 1 week ago, when I needed to reinstall Android because I had made the mistake of installing an OS made by a punk kid.
- Now that I got Android Nougat running on my devices, I’m certainly NOT messing around with this type of tool.
- I still tried it, I just made sure my phone wasn’t plugged in
- For some reason, I’m not surprised this comes from the Ubuntu Touch community
- Yes, I’m saying that the Android community is complete garbage.
- People need an extra tool for flashing ROMs to their mobiles?
- You poor things.
- Maybe if there was some kind of documentation people wouldn’t need tools
- Before 2014, everyone just assumed that everyone knew how to flash a phone
- The very poor documentation existing at the time was very windows centric
- And on top of that, you’d have to trust forum posts written by randos and downloads from RapidShare
- Thankfully, Lineage + OpenGapps + TWRP made the situation much better (not that the nasty stuff went away, but you can just ignore everything on XDA-devs easily now)
- Of course, I wouldn’t expect you to appreciate this tool because your a “Real Man”™ and you must do things “The Hard Way”™
- It’s not that people need another tool to flash their devices, it’s that a centralized app which can do everything is very helpful.
- As a lazy person, who has done his share of custom ROM flashing, this is really neat!
- Assuming of course it can do all it claims to be able to do.
OpenShot 2.3.2 Released
- Well, it imports all of our A/V now.
- Let’s face it. This show will be produced on OpenShot 1.4 until the end of times.
- libopenshot Detection is the main thing here since a lot of packages were updating openshot-qt only.
- Scrubbing through regular video is really chuggy and scrubbing through our recorded video (granted it’s HQ AF) is laughably bad.
- The animated title maker only has access to six fonts, how?
- As one of OpenShot biggest users in the world, I wonder how much feedback do you give to Jonathan Thomas
Vulkan all the things
- Makes a lot of sense to have a single common API to interact with GPUs
- Then it needs higher level, domain specific APIs
- Vulkan does what DX12 don’t.
- This is awesome.
- The more Vulkan supports and the more people learn about it, the higher the chances we’ll see Vulkan take over rendering in userland.
- I still want to see a Vulkan replacement for GLX, or if we’re serious about dropping X, a Vulkan based renderer for Wayland.
- GSK in GTK 4 will have a Vulkan renderer, although that’s a bit different
- Mid week gaming news brings the latest Humble Indie Bundle, which is one of the best so far.
- This is right up there with the Humble Indie Bundle V, which came with Amnesia, Bastion, Psychonauts, Super Meat Boy, Limbo, Lone Survivor, etc.
- $11 off Owlboy.
- That’s not how it works
- Unless you really, REALLY hate all the other games and think their devs don’t deserve to be paid.
- Or you already have those other games.
Slice of Pi
- I’ve seen this done with ATX boards
- And every time I have the same reaction: a big fat NOPE
- Fluorinert™ or GTFO!
- I think that’s kind of the point of going public
- MS is going to buy Ubuntu in the next two years, guaranteed.
- Pedro hasn’t invented a language loosely based on English, that may be the reason why
- Also, Pedro is a native english speaker, at least according to my mom who is an english teacher
