Some thoughts on one of +Ubuntu 's upcoming changes.
The latest bit of announced change that has people up in arms in the Linux community is Ubuntu's concept of “Snappy” packages.

Taking a leap this summer. Should be an interesting time.
 
The question everyone is going to ask is: Why does this need to exist? To understand why, you need to understand where Bodhi has come from as a project. Bodhi has always been a project based around the Enlightenment desktop. The Enlightenment desktop…

E16 is well maintained and works for me everyday.  With just a little effort and help from Kim "kwo" Woelders, I've compiled it against Wheezy and Jessie.  

See,

XFCE4 has reasonably modern utilities that serve where E16 seems to have a few weaknesses.  I tried out XFCE4 + E16 a little over the last couple of weeks.

Pretty great compliment I got in a comment recently:

"I have always admired Jeff Hoogland. He is the very embodiment of the open source ethos. He uses something, doesn't like it, so hacks on it until it suits his needs, and then gives back."

Bodhi was the second distro I ran after I got started. Jeff and the Bodhi IRC helped out so much. Glad to see you get a well deserved pat on the back.

Interesting piece with some decent ideas/topics of discussion:

"We will need a change in mentality if we want to become a provider of the software-of-choice in the categories where we compete. It means getting rid of the "you got it for free, if you don't like it, fuck off or send a patch" mentality."

Would just like to share how disgusted I am with my experience dealing with Fox Lake Toyota. I am in the market for a new car and Fox Lake advertised a fantastic price on a used Prius V 2012. Even though it was nearly three hours from my front door to Fox Lake Toyota, the price was right and on May 23rd I scheduled to come in Monday the 26th for a test drive with Amanda Astorino. The morning of the 26th I received a confirmation email from Amanda to confirm my appointment. After my wife and I packed up our three month old and drove all the way to Fox Lake, I was informed the Prius I had come to see had been sold two days previously on Saturday the 24th! The solution I was offered? To look at a different car that was $5,000 more and had three times as many miles on it. This is not acceptable. I would not have driven to Fox Lake had I been informed the car I wanted to see was no longer available. Fox Lake Toyota cost my wife and I each six hours worth of time round trip, not to mention the gas and tolls it cost to travel during that time. My clients would have to pay several hundred dollars for this much of my time and I do not appreciate having it wasted by Fox Lake's incompetence. It blows my mind that you are incapable of keeping track of inventory properly. If this is how prospective customers are treated I can not even begin to imagine how poorly Fox Lake Toyota treats people after they collect their money. This experience has left such a bad taste in my mouth that a Prius has gone from my top choice of new car, to being removed from my list entirely. I intend to encourage whoever will listen to avoid Toyota USA dealers when looking for a new car so they can avoid the headache I went through this weekend.
