We have a stretch goal on our #Kickstarter campaign, if we hit it we will work hard to make quality voice control available on the #Linux desktop! We have already spoke with the #Ubuntu Unity team about some ideas, but we are hoping to get it integrated with other desktop environments as well! #Mycroft #AI #artificialintelligence #AIForEveryone  
Mycroft enable you to control your Linux desktop with just your voice. Launch applications, change media, and adjust settings just by speaking.

+Mattias Bengtsson Det handlar om att använda endast det du behöver. De flesta distributioner installer en massa program och tjänster som du inte använder. Det är detta som refereras till när man pratar om "bloat". Det som finns där men som du inte har nytta av.

Man kan även prata om det när det kommer till program i vissa fall. De som har samma funktioner men där den ena tar mindre resurser.

X11 är ju lite legendarisk med sitt bloat.. den hade ju t.ex. en print-server inbakad ett tag.

Och nej, det är nog ingen som medvetet vill lägga till "bloat" och bränna CPU-cykler i onldan. Men om du har något du inte använder som gör det kan du kalla det bloat.

The Flash Revolution is Here

YOU’VE LIKELY HEARD about Samsung’s 16TB hard drive, by far the world’s largest. That is an eye-popping number, a large enough leap forward that it’s difficult to fully process. And the most exciting thing about that 16TB hard drive? It’s just a hint of what’s coming next.

The pace of flash storage development has been slow and steady for decades. Finally, though, we’re starting to see breakthroughs of the last few years result in actual products, starting with one mammoth SSD.

The potentially much bigger breakthrough? Intel and Micro’s 3D XPoint (pronounced “crosspoint”) technology, which completely rethinks the way we’ve been making memory for years.

“Any artificial intelligence or object recognition you want to have on a device works a lot better with XPoint … The more you can put into that really fast memory space, the better your artificial intelligence is going to be,” says Moorhead. “The simple application is gaming, where you’re waiting two to three minutes on some PCs to get to the next level. You can actually have entirely multiple levels in 3D Xpoint instead of having to wait for all that data.”

ARM Linux boards are even getting cheaper.
Don't expect much support though, nor up-to-date firmware.
Orange Pi 2 is a board powered by Allwinner H3 quad core processor that sells for $25. Shenzhen Xunlong Software has now launched a lower cost version with Orange Pi PC, still based on Allwinner H3 SoC, but getting ridiculously cheap at $15 + shipping ($3.43 in my case).

What Bernie doesn't get is that Ron Paul doesn't think there is anything morally or practially wrong with denying those emergency health care services either. If you simply would let the old, sick or children die, you would sure save money - and thus this two billion to prevent old people from starvation is a waste.

After all, Ron Paul believes people are entirely responsible for whatever happens to them. In his world, there is no luck or chance - if you are poor, it is your fault. If you are born poor, you choose the wrong parents (or something). If you are unable to study due to lack of money or just because you're not smart enough (for example because your parents didn't manage to feed you or were alcoholic), your fault. If you die of hunger or disease, YOU should have worked harder. Fuck you, poor people.

GNOME closed the awful bug with NVIDIA drivers, causing screen updates issues.

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=728464

Ofc NVIDIAs have a more major bug now, and that is the still unsupported Wayland. That affects proprietary drivers only though, but open implementation isn't really an alternative, specially if we have paid 700E for a 980.

IMP GNOME's main advantage since ever, was the stability. It was a desktop not very fancy (as KDE), but it hadn't major regressions and bugs (like KDE!). 

After GNOME 3 release, GNOME lost that in a large degree, kinda expected with all those changes, and introduced many problems, both on graphics stack, but also memory leaks and other issues. 

But it seems GNOME is starting restoring the SERIES2 behavior (with date relativity!), it doesn't crash, it performs fast, and some issues on newly created applications are really insignificant. 

Perhaps GNOME really means a single thing. LINUX! And Linux doesn't crash, it doesn't bug, it just works. So GNOME should follow :p

Story
Tagline
My main intrest is Arch Linux and Linux over-all.
Introduction
Jag gillar att diskutera teknik och samhällsfrågor. Är kanske inte så jätteduktig på att skriva egna poster alltid men postar ofta vidare intressanta saker som dyker upp i mitt flöde. Är gift och har två barn som tar upp det mesta av min tid.

Försöker hålla mig insatt om det mesta men är i grunden en Linuxnörd om än inte fanatisk. Kan även Windows och Mac men föredrar som sagt Linux.

---

I like to discuss technology and society. Am perhaps not the best at writing my own posts myself but repost often about interesting things that pop up in my feed. Married with two children which takes most of my time.

Trying to keep me informed about everything but is,
if not fanatical, basically just another Linux geek. I can do Windows and Mac too but as said prefer Linux.
