To all my +openSUSE-using friends:

My fellow co-hosts are, in the next episode of Bad Voltage, going to be reviewing openSUSE.  (The three of them haven't used it in many years...)

Head over to the Bad Voltage forum and tell Jono, Jeremy and Stuart why openSUSE is awesome.  They need convincing.

http://community.badvoltage.org/t/1x37-spooning-with-everybody/10218/6
 
Bad Voltage 37 'Spooning With Everybody' is available to listen to and download at http://www.badvoltage.org/2015/03/06/1x37/

+Jeremy Garcia, +Bryan Lunduke, +Stuart Langridge, and myself drone about drones, complain about governments, argue about old modem companies, and:

 * Why is OpenSUSE relevant, and why should we use it? Including a challenge to the three non-Bryan members of the team to try OpenSUSE for real (1.51)

 * We speak to Dave Nielsen, founder of Campsite.org, co-runner of CloudCamp, and not at all a money launderer (18.00)

 * Jono reviews the 3DRobotics Iris+ drone and explains what a drone is actually for (29.16)

 * Net Neutrality: the US have brought in some recent rulings which look bright for the pro-net-neutrality world. Are they all they’re cracked up to be? And what’s the deal here? (43.44)

Be sure to share your thoughts on the show at http://community.badvoltage.org/t/1x37-spooning-with-everybody/10218 and be sure to catch our live show with an audience at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k02EeD0rXYo

Welcome to the team, duder!
 
Hello dear followers, hello beloved interwebs, dear lazy plus!
This is an announcement: In a nutshell, starting from March 1, 2015 I have become a  member of the greenest, "germanest" and greatest Linux family. After more than eight years I am leaving Linux Magazine Germany and am joining +SUSE 's skilled and experienced documentation team.
My new job is called "Team Lead Documentation" and will be -now who would have thought that - in Nürnberg. I will keep you updated, and yes, of course I will keep on writing. Both for +Linux-Magazin and for everybody else in this great Linux community.

I've got two "Windows" tablets here -- a Lenovo Miix 2 and a Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2.  But, well, both of them are running Windows 8.1... which means they don't get a lot of usage around these parts.  (I don't think either of them has been even plugged in in quite some time.)

I need ideas for what the heck to do with them.  I'd love to throw another OS on them -- ANY OS, at this point, will make me smile.  As long as it's not Windows.  Can't find a single other operating system that boots and runs reasonable well on these suckers.  Which is a shame, as they both have some nice specs.

Ideas?

i guess you could try getting an Ubuntu Touch build running if they have 32-bit builds, or if you can get the 64-on-32 stuff working (I haven't had time to look into it).

Sweeeeet.  Krita is awesome.  There are even +openSUSE repositories in +Open Build Service already for 13.1, 13.2 and Factory.  Time to update and kick the tires.

Leonard Nimoy was an inspiration for me -- in many ways.  His writing, his photography, his acting... the way he incorporated (and explored) his faith in it all.  He will be missed.

I remember being at a sci-fi convention (I forget which one... Comic Con perhaps).  Leonard was up at the podium.  He gets this sly smile on his face... then begins to recite poetry.  He then went on to talk -- at length -- about Tashlich (a sort of casting off of sins, into the water, in Jewish tradition).  His confidence to speak about what he wanted to speak about impressed me in a profound way.

Baruch dayan ha'emet.
In addition to acting, Mr. Nimoy directed films; published poetry, autobiographies and books of photography; and recorded music.

It was, indeed, a good time.  I tell you what... Linux nerds sure know how to party.
 
Some remininisisicienceces about Bad Voltage Live 2015: http://www.kryogenix.org/days/2015/02/25/bad-voltage-live-2015/
This week we did the first Bad Voltage live show, at the SCaLE conference in Los Angeles. It was the first time that Bryan, Jono, Jeremy, and I had actually all been in the same place. And it was a really good laugh. We'd been planning this for some time, as you can imagine.

+Steven Vaughan-Nichols is right.  The original Pixel is an amazing laptop.  A Pixel 2 would be extremely hard to resist.
 
I love my Pixel and I'm ready to love my Pixel 2.
Summary:Google won't confirm it, but it's clear that there's a new version of the Chromebook Pixel on its way.

I never got all the rage about the Pixel. The display is decent, but at this price the rest of the hardware looks like a bad joke. As a developer I can live with a standard FullHD screen, I'll connect an 28" external display anyways, but I can't live with just 4 GB of RAM and a 32 GB hard drive.

+NVIDIA's Grid provides a surprisingly nice gaming experience.  On a Linux-based system.  Which makes me happy.
I tried out Nvidia's instant streaming service for video games, and I was pleasantly surprised with how it performed.

What about playing on an actual PC instead of a SHIELD device?

Yep.  I wrote that.  You're welcome.
When looking out at the Linux and greater Open Source world, examples of “coopetition” stretch out to the horizon.

+Michael Freeman : that's why I prefer the Oxford spelling: turkducken

PS: This was a joke. OED actually uses the turd spelling. But anyway, it's awesome that such an awesome dish is part of the OED. Awesome. Did I say awesome too many times? Cool

Dangit, +Swapnil Bhartiya​. Stop writing things I agree with.
 
While I must also add the standard disclaimer that the best OS is the one that works for you, here are some of the reasons I consider openSUSE to be a great, if not the perfect, desktop OS.
Here are a few reasons I use openSUSE and why its one of the best choices in the GNU/Linux world.

+Richard Brown This is a really good point.. If I could overcome Ruby syntax comfort zone issues and plain laziness I would be on Puppet for these purposes like white on rice.  Anyone know of a node Puppet equiv?.. Don't judge me.. I just hate context switching.

Short and sweet: These guys are awesome. They did our copper gutters 2 years back. They gave us a very reasonable estimate with no surprises at the end. The gutter quality is nothing short of amazing. They look and work great. Had a minor issue with one gutter coming loose and they came right out and fixed it up. Didn't charge us a dime and no questions asked. They even had a smile on their face. I'd love to hire them to build more gutters for us. Unfortunately their gutters are solid and have long warranties. So I probably will never need to. :)

Purchased orchard grass from Del's three times for my goats. The first time: Quick loading of the truck, pretty average price, good quality. Not a single complaint. The second time: I needed delivery. Paid a (rather steep) delivery fee. Said they'd call when they were headed my way. Never called. They delivered the bales to a house about a block away from mine. Just dumped it in their driveway. So I had to haul the bales (up-hill) to my place... then go back and clean up the mess they made in the neighbors driveway (an apologize to the neighbor). Called up Del's to let them know and they apologized and offered me free delivery the next time I ordered from them). The third time: I called up to take advantage of that free delivery they promised me. They told me they would never, under any circumstances, offer something like that. After insisting they offered me "10 dollars off delivery" (aka "10%"). They assured me they had really high quality orchard grass so I caved and ordered. This time they delivered to the right address... but the bales looked more like straw than orchard grass. Completely brown. Very dry. Very stemmy. The stuff you'd pay no more than a few bucks for. Called to let them know, they told me that there was nothing they could do about it. So was it terrible? Not... TOO terrible. Just not great. And very inconsistent. I'll be avoiding unless they make a concerted effort to improve. Would I order from them in a pinch? Sure. But not if there are other options.

Been really happy with these guys. Good prices -- not crazy cheap, but always reasonable -- and consistently good quality orchard grass. Plus they've always been friendly and helpful. Definitely my favorite in the area.
