It is a bit sad to see that TextSecure performs really well, is Free Software but is still not available outside of Google Play and without GCM dependencies. I Hope this will change soon.
Which apps and tools actually keep your messages safe? In the face of widespread Internet surveillance, we need a secure and practical means of talking to each other from our phones and computers. Many companies offer “secure messaging” products—but are these systems actually secure? We decided to find out, in the first phase of a new EFF Campaign for Secure & Usable Crypto.

Latest news about Free Software and GNU/Linux in Munich aka LiMux.

Munich mayor confirmed, employee-survey doesn't show any relation between the employees' problems and Free Software. A working group will evaluate the IT processes in Munich, FSFE ask to take vendor independence and interoperability into account.
On Tuesday, Munich's first mayor finally reacted to an inquiry by the Green Party (in German) related to rumours regarding a possible switch back to a Windows-based desktop environment. The answer to the inquiry shows that there is no factual basis for the claims made by first mayor and second ...

"Microsoft is way too smart to let the ecosystem suspect of a potential issue with document formats based on a specific obstacle built into the standard. For instance, it took quite a long time to spot the C-Font trick built into the last versions of MS Office, and most users – including corporate IT managers – are still completely unaware of it."

I just played around with Kontact 4.3.13 on Kubuntu 14.04 in a VM. I tried to add a Google calendar resource. Under "Settings -> Configure Kontact -> Calender -> General -> Calendars" the new Akonadi resource is shown as "ready". But in the calendar view I still see the "personal calender" only. Also for example under "Settings -> Configure Kontact -> Calender ->Colors and Fonts" I can only chose the "personal calender" resource. What am I doing wrong? Any hints.

Akonadi Configuration shows the resource also as "ready", but it is still not visible in the calendar and the calendar settings. Is it possible that the usage of Akonadi resources is somehow disabled?

Skandal! Die Entscheidung für GNU/Linux in München war laut CSU hauptsächlich politisch motiviert. Wie kann ein Politiker nur politische Entscheidungen treffen? Ich bin entsetzt!

"Die Hoheit über vertrauliche Daten und Betriebsgeheimnisse liegt im Zweifelsfall bei einem Gericht in den USA – das sollte jede Gemeindeverwaltung und jeder Mittelständler wissen, wenn ein Treffen mit den Vertriebsleuten von Microsoft, Google, Apple, Oracle, Cisco, IBM und Co. ansteht."
