Lots of alphas out today (not all flavors participate in alpha releases though), which makes this a great time to contribute to them. Testing now gives the developers enough time to fix the bugs you encounter before the actual release.
 
Kubuntu 15.10 Alpha 2 is now available for download. Go forth and test!

I connected a mouse to my Ubuntu phone.... this happened! The large icons and fonts will be because it knows the screen is only 4 inches.. Not a bad effort considering its far from ready, or even publicized that this feature even exists, let alone that it is so far along.

TIL that http://qntm.org/suicide is a thing.....
You know how sometimes if you mistype a filename in Bash, it corrects your spelling and runs the command anyway? Such as when changing directory, or opening a file. I have invented Suicide Linux. Any time - any time - you type any remotely incorrect command, the interpreter creatively resolves ...

Today I plugged my Nexus 4 phone, running Ubuntu, into my HDMI TV, and it (A) switched to Desktop mode automatically and (B) rotated the phone shell to landscape to display on the TV. I don't have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse yet, but I could move windows around from the phone's touch screen.

I would have taken a picture of it, but a picture of a TV showing the camera app leads to infinite-recursion. I need a second phone now just for that.

But this is really exciting progress, I can't wait until I can start dogfooding the use of my phone as my desktop.

This morning's update to my #ubuntu Nexus 4 brings a surprise mouse cursor in the upper-left corner. I suppose if I had a Bluetooth mouse, this would do something.

Google Play permissions boggle my mind. My kids' tablets had a content filter of "Everybody 10+", which I assumed was like "PG 13" in that it was the maximum rating allowed, but not the minimum.

Then I tried to install Skype, which has a rating of "Everyone", and was told that it wasn't compatible with the content filter. Sure enough, changing the filter down to "Everyone" let it install just fine.

What sense does this make?

+Chloe WolfieGirl Why not? The idea was actually that children are correctly educated when it comes to technology. In this example: Open source - ok, Closed source - less ok, because limits.

An update on the new version of Mir that's about to land in the daily phone images.
Hi,. We have recently released Mir 0.14 to Wily (0.14.0+15.10.20150723.1-0ubuntu1). It'll soon be released to Vivid+ as well. We have lots of goodies in 0.14 : It was a comprehensive release where we broke every single ABI under the sun including the client ABI. That required us to release many ...
