Wanna see something fun? Here's what makes up +elementary OS:

41 different public open source projects. 745 public code branches. 14,172 bug reports (10,000 of which have been closed). Over $15,000 in bounties (including $3,470 to upstream projects). Several contributions upstream including to Ubuntu, GTK+, GStreamer, and Vala. A private build server to compile code and crank out images daily. 79 developers and contributors collaborating daily, with dozens more coming and going.

It's a huge project. :)

Why a company with nearly 100 Windows-only workstations started using open-source. ...

I've been working on a little prototype for the last couple of days in my spare time for a new Vala site. Right now it's mostly a HTML & CSS grid system with some little JavaScript affects to smooth it out, but there's a little bit of PHP backend for fetching the latest version number and size every so often and caching it too. Just wanted to share and gather any suggestions you guys may have.

Users and Customers are not the same thing. Customers pay a price you either set or negotiate with them, largely based on volume. If you are not paying for something, you are a user, but you are NOT a customer, even if you "donate".

Corporations often give away things in exchange for the meta data they harvest off the user. In which case they are the consumer. Always know which side of the glass you are on. Peace.

If we can get just one more question above 10 points here, then we can move to the next phase towards getting our own stack exchange site.

Just pushed a much better looking examples page for my 2-factor-authentication library. A little pleased with myself. http://labs.eustasy.org/authenticatron/example.php?secret=AUTHENTICATRON23

Unstable Testing  - 
 
I'm now running Freya as my main OS (after destroying my Luna installation), and the only serious problem I have right now is some weird white box that appears over Google Chrome and freezes it. Anyone have any ideas?

maybe a bug from freya it self, try updating the OS , go to settings, about, search for updats.
but if you keep having problems why don't try ubuntu 14.04 in the meantime? , i've read somewhere that with ubuntu 14.04 installe you can install a PPA with the freya "launcher"

Tweaks, Themes, Mods  - 
 
So a little while ago you may have seen a Freya Theme for Google Chrome (also works under Luna as far as I can tell). I've now completed work to get these on the Chrome Web Store, and have also added a "Classic Colors" version with the more natural blue loading circle, among other small resets.
