Sometimes I think to myself: Chrome is the new IE.

But then I remember that most of it is free software, and thanks to it we've gotten HTTP2 and soon QUIC proposed to the IETF. So it's all not that bad, but still... I think we need to support our friends at Mozilla to get FFs numbers up again.

Chrome is the new IE - because the new IE claims to be Chrome :D

All those non-tech users like Architects, Graphic Designers, Accountants, Scientists, Teachers, Audio/Video Producers, 3D Animators, POS clerks, Documentalists... all of them have no reason to use a desktop...

Sure... right... whatever.
 
I'm just ringing the alarm bell, again!

Do you dream about "no-tech" users in Linux? Drin Drin! Reality alarm! It is not gonna happen, and in any case desktop doesn't play any serious (if any at all) role on it. Start "respecting" your current user base, & make our life front of computers easier & happier!

A "no-tech" user has absolutely no reason to use a desktop and specially a Linux desktop! Meanwhile "tech freaks" are getting more and more. My opinion? Make a Linux desktop for them, that's your opportunity here! The only opportunity really!

Oh and the alarm doesn't go just for GNOME!

+Sriram Ramkrishna Thing is that is don't write "my very own opinions". I do share opinions with many GNOME members, and the only difference is that I call them in public, with a no "elegant" way. 

Also, I dont believe what has been said here is like a big deal. Normal things, happen every day ..almost!

The fact that the LIMA open source MALI GPU driver development has stalled is really frustrating. It's one of the most popular GPUs among ARM SBC other than the Pi (the situation with Broadcom's VideoCore is even more depressing at this point).

System76 removes Adobe Flash Player from their Ubuntu PCs and so should you!

+Rob Clark correct, pepperflash is a proprietary plugin that only comes with Chrome or ChromeOS. Chromium and ChromiumOS do not have it, though some people copy it in and some distros, at least Gentoo offer a way to install the plugins for use with Chromium. At least for amd64/x86.

Richard Hughes is working on building the infrastructure we need for the UEFI firmware updates under Linux, it is an interesting read and an area where we would love some help and input from the wider community
Inside a windows driver package you'll probably see a few .dll 's, a .inf file and a .cat file. If you've ever been curious in Windows you'll have double clicked it and it would show some technical information about the driver and some information about who signed the file.

When you develop software, you need some kind of toolchain. For example, to develop for an ARM processor, you need a suitable C compiler, a linker, a library, and a programmer. FPGAs use a similar set of tools. However, instead of converting source code…

I frown everytime I need to write tests code with timeouts and file monitors/inotify in GLib with C/Vala. Really hard to mock things there.

Hehe, I did something similar in the end. I still find it annoying :-)

Not surprised, the IO hardware on the Raspberry is a joke. I'll prolly end up buying a Banana Pi.

For the first time in like - ever - there is some serious discussion about trying to get rid of Flash. Mozilla seems to be willing to work on a common end date. What about you +Google Chrome +Google Chrome Developers ? Time to speak up and work on a common solution!
Yesterday the usual tech news outlets were buzzing over an accidental tweet which the media incorrectly interpreted as Mozilla was ditching flash (Blame The Verge for the chain reaction of copied n...

YouTube works fine without flash and has for a long time. +Alberto Ruiz I agree that websites should stop using flash - until that happens turn it off.
