Dear elementary OS community., I have an old desktop that I was able to buy from my old secondary school on which I installed elementary OS Freya. Unfortunately the computer has no wireless card. What kind of external Wifi-adapter can you recommend that is compatible with the Linux kernel Freya uses and that has proper internet speeds and enough range so it can detect my wifi and have a stable connection. Right now I'm using a cheap wifi-dongle but that hardly ever connects and if it does it has a connection speed measured in tens of kB/s. Thanks for any help and recommendations.

I just use a cheap TP-Link USB WiFi dongle and it works out of the box in Elementary.

Dit is een leuke podcast over elementary OS die net onlangs van start is gegaan. Het was een tijdje wachten op een elementary-specifieke podcast en ik ben blij dat ze er is. Het is interessant om meer te weten van de achtergronden en motivaties van de verschillende programmeurs en grafisch ontwerpers en de structuur van het project zelf en wie welke taak erin vervuld. Zo voel je er dichter bij betrokken.

Hey everyone! I have finally created a Patreon page! If you want to support the ongoing development of Vocal, Birdie, and some of my other projects, this is the best place to do it! Plus, there are some cool rewards available, including pre-alpha builds and a puzzle-based Easter Eggs system that I'm especially proud of.

Also, did I mention that the first in-depth sneak peek at Vocal 2.0 will be arriving next week for the Early Preview level backers?
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!

In response to the article you discussed on how Google follows and keeps a record of you everywhere you go: this is one of the reasons I just bought an Ubuntu Phone (the BQ Aquaris E5). The point +Rob Hawkins made was spot on! When you delete your history and when you indicate that you do not want to be tracked any more, that in no way guarantees that this won't happen. I didn't want to be (what's the word you use when you know something is wrong but you couldn't be bothered to do something about it) any more about my phone spying on every move I make.
I'm slowly but surely moving away from all Google's services that mine as much data on me as possible and then sell it to the highest bidder. That's why I moved away from Gmail to Fastmail, I changed my search engine from Google to DuckDuckGo, I switched from Chromium to Firefox, and that's why I'm shutting down my Android phone and bought an Ubuntu phone.
All the data I want to be public, they can analyse as much as they like, like whatever I share on Google+ or the video's I put out on YouTube, but I want to be able to control what I (want to have) share(d) with others, not to have web front end that says: "We won't track you any more, really we won't, cross our hearts."

Het is eenvoudig om een sneltoets hiervoor toe te voegen. Ikzelf gebruik die veel om te schakelen tussen International met en zonder dead keys (normale teksten vs programmeren).

Dear +mintCast, what was the website again which you found where you can find Linux Mint and other Linuxdistributions that were already customized and tweaked to run (near flawlessly) on a chromebook?

I do say that I do not agree with you on the topic of the snap packages and dynamically linking packages. Disk space may be cheap and in abundance on desktops and laptops, but on phones it is very restricted. Most phones vary from 8 to 16 to 32 gb and there is a trend that phones don't have the option to have external micro SD-cards, so on a phone disk space is very limited and seeing that Canonical is expanding into this area and wants to use these snap packages here as well, I don't think this is the right solution for these types of devices.

Good point. Also what happens if your snappy package has a statically linked SSL library with a serious security flaw. Normally the flaw would be patched and the SSL library updated. What happens if the app developer doesn't recompile their app using the updated SSL? Gaping security hole.

Een nieuw artikel voor een nieuwe video. Misschien wordt dit een reeks van instructiefilmpjes voor elementary OS
