I know about that. I've been warning people since the beginning not to upgrade.

Being African: What does hair have to do with it?
I've found this article to be really enlightening about a widely ignored issue in our modern society.

In a constantly changing world where the idea of beauty is at times reduced to a fad, it seems even in modern South Africa, my beauty and identity isn't mine to define, writes the BBC's Pumza Fihlani.

A new player enters the SVG editors paradigm. This is definitely interesting.
 
We have finally decided on our app lineup. It was a long and arduous journey, but we now have the names for all of them. 

Baseline - IDE
Precipice - Vector Editor
Graphene - Database Editor
Donald  - he's our UI Editor

This is a very proud moment for us and we hope that you will really get to like our suite of app, especially Donald.

This pretty much sums up the current problems in FLOSS and the lack of designers in the development process.

Great interview, +Reda Lazri.
 
I've been interviewed recently by Zak Rogoff from the Free Software Foundation. :)

Note: I've insisted to make known the fact that I don't rely exclusively on the free software toolchain before agreeing to the interview.

I can only agree! The Galago UltraPro is the best laptop I've ever had, one beast piece of machinery. 
 
I've been meaning to write this post forever, but I've been too busy kicking ass to do so. However, after last night I really can't resist or procrastinate on this anymore.

I love my +System76 Galago UltraPro. Back in February, my previous laptop which I've had for over 3 years, was starting to fail me. I was planning on just getting the latest generation of that model. While at SCALE I had a chance to play with the Galago UltaPro in person. 4xi7 and 16GB RAM with an IPS matte display and Intel Iris Pro 5200. I literally purchased it online on the Galago they had on display. I was sold.

In the last 5 months this laptop has traveled over 20,000 miles and been to 7 countries. It hasn't left my side and has been an amazing companion. When at home I split my time 50/50 between desktop and laptop. That was, until last night.

My desktop, a 4xi7 and 32GB machine has been, failing. Constant lock ups setting back my work and productivity. Yesterday it locked up three times in one day, one while doing an Ubuntu on Air broadcast. In my frustration over the dodgy state of my desktop I realized that the Galago has a display port and HDMI out. Too good to be true. After rounding up some cables and adapters, I've got a new workstation and grew an extra screen.

So I wanted to sincerely thank the entire +System76 crew. The laptop is amazing, and for the price, it's one of the best spec'd machines. This is my work, this plays my games, this is my cloud, this laptop is my life!

+Patrik Bubák the prices are fair, the problem is the prices go up when you buy from Europe.

Yeah, buying something that comes with Linux is the best you can do, as everything should work right out of the box.

It may sound as a burlesque metaphor, but I think the comparison is perfectly valid and does have a point. 
 
Or imagine if laptops were sold like the smartphone industry.

Like your 13" laptop from two years ago? Time to upgrade! Oh, we only offer 17" now. But it's okay. You'll get used to it (and the back problems from lugging it around).
