Dear +Mark Shuttleworth and the rest of Ubuntu CC,

I support +Jonathan Riddell in Kubuntu leadership. That is my final position.

Cheers,

I have a dualboot with Win7 and this is how I boot to Win7 when I need to:
- select Win7 from the bootloader
- boot to Linux because Win7 was updated and autorestarted and I was not watching the screen
- reboot and select Win7 again, this time with eyes constantly on the screen
- wait for about 3 minutes for "Updates to finish configuring things"
- eyes still on the screen
- go through another (auto)reboot
- select Win7 yet again in the bootloader
- wait for about 5 minutes for "Updates failed, please wait for rollback"
- reboot because 3 reboots cannot be enough for a Windows
- select Win7 from bootloader
- wait for a minute for "Finishing updates"
- login
- boot to Linux because updates were made and it auto-restarted (that dialog "remind me in most 4 hours") because I went to the toilet
- reboot
- select Win7 from bootloader
- wait 4 minutes for "Updates finishing configurations"
- login
- try to remember why I rebooted to Win7 in the first place
- do what I rebooted for
- done after 30 seconds (I just needed to check a button)
- shutdown
- "Please don't shut down the power and wait for Win7 to finish updating"
- throw the keyboard

I'm coming to the conclusion that one does not simply run an up-to-date Windows install because the FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU rage is just not worth it.

+Lukáš Tinkl Haven't they ever asked Windows users about how much they like their offline updates? The result could be telling...

Damn, do I now have to join the anti-Poettering-camp? ;)

In other words, "we couldn't be bothered to fix the progress bar updating so we just put this label here instead".

Just discoveted mtrack touchpad driver. It feels like I got a whole new touchpad. On me olde MacBook Pro it gives about seven billion times better experience than with synaptic. How I never heard about it is beyond me o_O

If you have a multitouch touchpad, I strongly suggest to give it a try. The config might be a bit of fiddling, but it's nicely documented and imo quite easy to set up the right way. Only thing I haven't yet figured out is the "kinetic scrolling" (swipe through the touchpad fast and it scrolls and scrolls and scrolls...and scrolls). Anyone using it have that?

Drone racing is so cool! All it needs now is proper OculusRift support and flamethrowers.

In other noteworthy news, the new Android will feature a whole 1 density-independent pixel shorter status bar. The crowds go wild.

Also reminds me of http://dilbert.com/strip/1989-05-17
 
The status bar height in the Android M developer preview is changing. It is now 24dp tall in order to match Material Design quidelines (previously 25dp). From what I remember, it is also the first change in height since Android 1.0.

Not sure if +Jiří Eischmann is followed mostly by Gnome people or if our KDE IM clients are really not that popular anymore [insert Futurama Fry meme pic]
Last week I wrote about the suboptimal state of instant messaging in Fedora Workstation with some thoughts how it could be improved. I also asked Fedora users on Facebook and Google+ what IM client...

When you ask a Kontact developer why the 'duplicate mails with POP3 and filtering' bug is open since years, the answer you get is "My employer [KDAB/Red Hat] does not pay me to work on bugs our customers to not care about". And I don't blame them that they don't work on it in their free time after they already spent hours in the same codebase at work.

When I got my first DSLR many many years ago (5), lots of more experienced photographers told me "Shoot RAW, even if you can't do anything with it now, you will appreciate it in the future" and I was always like "Yeah...no". It always felt scary and super time consuming oh and the space requirements!

Couple years in the future, I've discovered that my post-processing was simply reaching its limits and that I was not getting the results I wanted. And I kinda knew that the only way through that was switching to RAW. And so I did. And now, couple months in the future, I so wish I started shooting RAW from the start. I just wish I could go back to some of my pics and redo their post-processing, properly. But I can't because I was too lazy.

So if you're getting into DSLR shooting, switch it to RAW! There will be a day when you'll be very happy for that decision. Even if you have no clue about the RAW workflow now (there's nothing to it, really!), you will go there eventually. And space is cheap...er. Cheaper. So now there's no excuse ;)
