Installing Debian after such a long time it feels like I am meeting my childhood friends after all these years.

Cuban blood (Rubio and Cruz) is running to take over United States of America. What a joke GOP has become.

Finally a tablet that transforms into a PC and can actually do more than what iPad can.
Is Ubuntu tablet the laptop replacement we've been waiting for?

As much as I disagree with Canonicals choices over some things, I really hope this takes off

It’s really tough time for a new player to crack the smartphone and tablet space. Windows phones are almost dead and last year we saw both Jolla and Firefox struggling to keep their mobile ambitions alive.

I sat down with Mark Shuttleworth at SCaLE 14x and, among many other things, I asked him about the future of Ubuntu mobile, about how long he will continue to support it. He took some time to gather his thoughts and then said he is fully invested in Ubuntu mobile and will support it for the foreseeable future.

While we do have other open source projects like Plasma Mobile, I think Ubuntu is the closest thing we have to liberate mobile devices from a walled garden.

What do you think?

More support for good quality alternative appstores for Android would be quicker and easier.

OpenStack is rapidly gaining adoption and maturity, with 60% of deployments in production compared to just 32% reported less than two years ago, according to OpenStack's October 2015 user survey. It is the biggest open source IaaS (infrastructure as a service) player, with backing from major IT vendors, including Red Hat, SUSE, Canonical, Rackspace, HP, IBM, CISCO, Mirantis, VMWare and AT&T, to name a few. And it competes head-to-head against the likes of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute Engine.
Demand for OpenStack increases, but challenges persist.

This is one area where the advantages of open standards and API'S has been obvious to the market from the get go. Fortunately the F/OSS crowd was smart enough to unite and collaborate early on and create a single cohesive product range rather than a dozen competing alternatives.

Let's get the ball rolling. Which Linux distribution do you use? When did you start using Linux?

Elementary Freya (love it) and started using Linux in 1997, exclusively from 1999 on.

Linux powered watches are about to get smarter. 
Google is pushing Android Wear updates that bring some great features to Android watches, including making phone calls, more gestures, and smarter voice commands.

In fact, if I can get touch gesture feedback however I can, one of the titles I'd be doing this for would rock on it- better than the keyboard/mouse you'd use on an X86 desktop.

And...if they're using an X86 environment, while I'd question their sanity, they already have a crapload that'll work on that tablet OUT OF BOX.
