Reading Boris Johnsson bitching about Obama recommending against Brexit the stench of hypocrisy is overwhelming considering his stance on Scottish independence. Of course that was the same kind of hypocrisy that SNP was reeking of in regards to Orkney independence. This is definitely not the age of being principled.

So GStreamer is used to make one of the greatest scientific discoveries \o/ https://wiki.ligo.org/DASWG/GstLAL
gstlal provides a suite of GStreamer elements that expose gravitational-wave data analysis tools from the LALSuite library for use in GStreamer signal-processing pipelines. Examples include an element to add simulated gravitational waves to an h(t) stream, and a source element to provide the ...

So yesterday, the 10th of November, was the official launch day of the Steam Machines. The hardware are meant to be dedicated game machines for the living room taking advantage of the Steam ecosystem, to take on the Xbox One and PS4. But for us in the Linux community these machines are more than ...

I should probably get back to hacking on libratbag again. So much to do and so little time.

So I guess most people have seen the announcement of Red Hats partnership with Microsoft. But I thought that I add a couple of crucial pieces of information that was left out of the official FAQ.

a) Does this mean Age of Empires is coming to Linux ? Answer: No, that is not part of the agreement unfortunately.

b) Does this mean Bing will be the default in Fedora? Answer: What is Bing? Never heard of it and neither has anyone else  ;)

The linked article is interesting in its own regard and the issue of the so called war on drugs, but the article also rekindled an old paradox for me on how on one side we need international agreements to achieve a lot of things, but on the flip side such agreements do undermine local democracy in a very significant manner. So in the case of the article it seems all 192 UN members are have to keep prohibition in place unless you can get all 192 members to agree to a change. Which is an extremely high threshold for changing something. And it is not just the war on drugs that are hostage to such agreements, I mean fixing copyright and patent laws are an area where we in the free software field have to deal with overcoming the obstacles passed by international agreements and which even if you manage to champion the issue in a national election the fix is not easily implementable because it comes in conflict with agreed international commitments. Which obviously is not good, but on the other hand I don't think one can make a valid case for the world being a better place without any binding international agreements. 
But don’t hold your breath—a UN summit on drugs next month looks likely to be a flop

Isn't it just a tradeoff, similar to individual freedom vs. laws?

Here's a little Christmas present. This is GNOME Software working with xdg-app to allow live updates of apps and runtimes. It's very much a prototype, but seems to work for me.

So many of you have probably seen that RHEL 7.2 is out today. There are many important updates in this release, some of them detailed in the official RHEL 7.2 press release. One thing however which you would only discover if you start digging into the 7.2 update is that its the first time in ...

Another major piece of engineering that I have covered that we did for Fedora Workstation 23 is the GTK3 port of LibreOffice. Those of you who follow Caolán McNamaras blog are probably aware of the details. The motivation for the port wasn't improved look and feel integration, there was easier ...
