Interesting....

"The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) is expected to rule within weeks on the practice of forced sale of licences for operating systems and other software bundled with computing devices. On 25 June, France’s Court of cassation referred to the CJEU a complaint of a French citizen who wanted to purchase a PC without any pre-installed operating system."

Just that you have to pay for something you don't want... not having to do that would be awesome!

Shit.... so Spain seems to be falling back to the Franco era. Anyone remembering the Spanish Civil War?

[translated] "Yesterday Spain who is governed by Partido Popular (a conservative party) made it unlawful to demonstrate. Every police also get the power to fine citizens (up to 600.000€) without need of trial. If they feel they haven't been respected."
 
Men vaffan!

I am not sure it will prove anything though... it will only be for those on welfare already. It is an improvement though I think. Next time they might dare to include an even bigger group. And that group would probably a lot more interesting to follow.

I have been running steam OS since the day it came out, and I'm pretty disappointed. Don't think it's worth it, most titles you would like a dedicated system for don't work. You can't even use wine directly through steam, you need to install a separate windows steam through wine to download and run the games.

It's a shame, but I fear it will be another year or two before it's a viable alternative to other consoles.

Russian media reports the YotaPhone (dual-screen phone) could switch from Android to Sailfish OS for some reason http://ow.ly/OWpVC
The move to non US solutions and hardware has been going on in China and Russia for a while now, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the makers of YotaPhone are giving up Android. The American OS is apparently not good enough for them, so they resorted to Sailfish OS. Initially, Samsung's Tizen [...]

Are small currencies better?

"not all, but most — of what you’ve heard about Greek profligacy and irresponsibility is false. Yes, the Greek government was spending beyond its means in the late 2000s. But since then it has repeatedly slashed spending and raised taxes. Government employment has fallen more than 25 percent, and pensions (which were indeed much too generous) have been cut sharply. If you add up all the austerity measures, they have been more than enough to eliminate the original deficit and turn it into a large surplus.

So why didn’t this happen? Because the Greek economy collapsed, largely as a result of those very austerity measures, dragging revenues down with it.

And this collapse, in turn, had a lot to do with the euro, which trapped Greece in an economic straitjacket. Cases of successful austerity, in which countries rein in deficits without bringing on a depression, typically involve large currency devaluations that make their exports more competitive. This is what happened, for example, in Canada in the 1990s, and to an important extent it’s what happened in Iceland more recently. But Greece, without its own currency, didn’t have that option."

Here it is, the first Release Candidate (RC) built for Kodi 15.0; freshly baked and ready to be served! Although we said that Kodi 15.0 is a “clean-up” edition, we still managed to squeeze in a couple of really nice features. So far we had around 1050 code change requests which were included ...

There are few, if any, software packages that have been as important and influential within the 3D printing space as Slic3r has been. As the only open source, n

Roundcube Next … we made it! But this is just the start, and the most important thing to me is that it is the start to building a much closer-knit community around the project and the product.
A couple days ago, the Roundcube Next crowdfunding campaign reached our initial funding goal. We even got a piece on Venture Beat, among other places. This was a fantastic result and a nice reward for quite a bit of effort...

There are probably better ways of doing this... but here is two quick and easy functions you can put in your ~/.{z,ba}shrc. I made this as not every package has moved over to aur4 yet. Make sure to remove this in august when the transition of aur4 to aur happen.

## update both aur and aur4
aur_upd () {
        if [[ $(grep 'aur4' /etc/yaourtrc) ]]; then
                echo "upd aur"
                sudo sed -i 's/aur4\./aur\./' /etc/yaourtrc
                yaourt -Syua --devel --noconfirm
                sudo sed -i 's/aur\./aur4\./' /etc/yaourtrc
                yaourt -Syua --devel --noconfirm && pachist 60
        else
                echo "no upd"
                sudo sed -i 's/aur\./aur4\./' /etc/yaourtrc
        fi
}

## search both aur
aur_search () {
        if [[ $(grep 'aur4' /etc/yaourtrc) ]]; then
                echo "search aur"
                sudo sed -i 's/aur4\./aur\./' /etc/yaourtrc
                yaourt -Ss $*
                echo "\nsearch aur4"
                sudo sed -i 's/aur\./aur4\./' /etc/yaourtrc
                yaourt -Ss $*
        else
                echo "no search"
                sudo sed -i 's/aur\./aur4\./' /etc/yaourtrc
        fi
}

Then just source the rc file and then 'aur_upd' to update your system from both aur and aur4.

Story

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.
