Folks, this is exciting news – Xubuntu core is (almost officially) here! We've been working on this for a while – not really behind closed doors, but without announcing it – and finally the day has come to put out the news.

Xubuntu core will be great for many who are low on bandwidth or who are simply not satisfied with our default selection of apps (note that we really do our best to keep sane defaults though!).

#xubuntu  
Xubuntu – Xubuntu is an elegant and easy-to-use operating system.

Before running any command or script, Fedy will now scan for possible malicious code first, and warn you before executing the script.

wait a minute... is that a warning from your app, or from Fedora OS? ;-)

A more threatening and demeaning wording would be:
"The plugin Destroyer will completely erase your computer disk. Do you know what you are doing?"

When you try to run multiple tasks at once, they are now queued instead of trying to run in parallel, in order to avoid conflicts and errors.

My name is Joey Sneddon — shock — I sometimes use Apple products.

Don't tell me: you already knew?

Now that wouldn't surprise me. It's not something I'm particularly secretive about (heck, my profile picture for several years until recently even had an iMac in the background). 

And yet… Every couple of weeks someone will spot a tweet I send, notice the 'sent from Twitter for Mac' badge, and point it out.

Why? 

As I said at the start, it's not like they have rumbled some grand master plan; I use OS X. It's not a secret! 

Secondly, no-one ever "calls me out" on tweets I send from Twitter apps on Windows 8.1, Android, Chrome OS, Ubuntu and the like. Or those served up through proprietary services like Buffer. 

Instead, it seem to boil down to the fact that I write about Ubuntu. The assumption, not an illogical one, granted, is that I either only use, or should only use, Ubuntu (and by extension open source software). 

I don't. That's not me. 

The reason why I use computers of all types, running operating systems of all types, is simple: curiosity — the exact same reason that drew me to use Ubuntu in the first place. 

Yeah. Truly shocking: I use tech out of curiosity and not ideology.

I think open-source is awesome sauce. OMG!'s Android apps and browsers add-ons are open-source. Even our website themes and some of our custom plugins are open sourced, etc.  

But me, Joey, as Mr Human Input person, I like to use a lot of things. The licensing and development model is not my concern. I leave those decision to the developer. It's their hard work. 

I'm too enthused and engaged by tech as a whole to wear a purview that's restrictive. Use just one platform? I'm sure I could. But I don't want to. And I don't need to.

So yes, folks. I use Apple products. And I also use a bunch of other products too, including ASUS, Dell, Samsung and HP devices. I use Windows, Chrome OS, Android, Ubuntu and iOS — and who knows whatever else in the past and going on in to the future. 

It's not a secret. I'm not hiding it. And, if you're like me, neither should you. Use what works, don't sweat the rest.

Working on a color library. Doesn't have much right now (only hex and rgb are supported), but eventually it'll have more color models, color manipulation methods, palette generator etc.

The aim is to replace the current color library in Croma with this one.

Also it'll be on npm (https://www.npmjs.com/package/pigment) for you to use in your own projects. It is very modular, so you can choose which color models you need :D

Fedora Software Center on Web!

Of course that will make more sense when we move to bundles and sandboxing, but for now it can benefit Fedora, with App ratings, comments, better search etc.

Personally I don't believe that GNOME and Fedora will directly "work", but GNOME and Red Hat will. Meaning that depends if Red Hat wants to seriously invest on desktop or not -through Fedora ofc!

Free Software and Open Source are two totally different things. At least how FSF politically defines free software. But for now I will considered them as one and just call them "open source".

Once, Richard Stallman said that open source born in a extreme capitalism environment. While he is a really smart guy, he failed to realize that open source was actually the mutation of proprietary source code, in a more capitalist and aggressive development model.

Open Source does what capitalism does, is giving equal opportunities and competition with no limits, no rules, no agreements, no ethics, it gives "virtual" ownership, kinda like a chaos model. One thing about chaos, is that is fair for everyone. It's the epitome of capitalism. Of "healthy" capitalism.

As open source grows, smart guys with great perception, took the chance that it was offered to them, and created these huge software companies we have today, that would never ever be possible without open source. And those are the companies that free-fans accuse, when in a sense, it was them and their ideas that created those.    

Software engineering isn't a science, but applied science of physics and maths, and the last two are mostly open, coz ~all the research takes place in universities. Thus, Open source is not important either for our "freedom" or "knowledge". Whats important is the data. For example, Google or Wikipedia; it doesn't really matter if they run on proprietary or open infrastructures, but it does matter what they do with the data they daily collect.

While internet grows with better connections and with more people getting access to it, in the next few years "desktop" operating systems will act just as a terminal to WWW, and they will be totally insignificant. In fact (in most of the cases) they already are, at least from an economical point of view, and what companies care about is to sell the hardware, the devices. 

Even so, operating systems will be here for ever, and will be open source (no alternative), and will be very competitive each other, even with small technical differences. Windows, OS X, iOS, Ubuntu, ChromeOS, FirefoxOS, Android, GNOME and so on, are competitive systems to each other and they "deserve" the same critics, bad or good.

Me, as someone that strongly believes in capitalism philosophy and open source model, I (and real market) don't care how many projects will shut down. If GNOME or Android or Linux or whatever else shut down, is really unimportant for open source. What only matters is how many new projects are coming. And lots are coming!

And this in short is my way of thinking. And every posting or saying from anyone always includes the matter of her opinion. Except if we do maths :)

To end up:

"GNOME Rocks!" 
"KDE Sucks!"

Those two sentences are actually one and the same. Every time someone is positive to something, she's also negative to something else, its competitors ..and the other way around. It's competition, it's open source! Pretty much the same when someone "re-invents the wheel (eg. forking)". She just "feels" that the previous "wheel" wasn't good enough. 

And if a project can't attract contributors (individuals or companies), isn't because suddenly programmers got disappeared or companies lose interest for investments, but because they "see" there are "better" things to contribute and invest on. 

Open Source will prevail!
Good morning, and have a nice Sunday ;)

Hey, I'm trying to horizontally center a ButtonBox in a HeaderBar, but I cannot seem to figure out how. I'm totally new to GTK, so bear with me :)
