i don't get it. license is supposed to be 200 USD. the notebook in the link is 250 USD. let's not even talk about preloaded windows licenses or multiple ones which are cheaper.
also what good is all the free software if it doesn't work as it should (some of it actually does work) or has poorer standards?

I'm not an App developer, so I might be wrong here, but I'm of the opinion that Ubuntu phone and Sailfish OS both use QML for their apps. If that's the case, shouldn't it be possible, maybe even fairly easy, for Ubuntu phones to support sailfish apps natively? 
If this is possible, it can help with the app catalogue of Ubuntu phones, without having to resort to supporting Android Runtime.
Thoughts?

Well, Ubuntu's current goal is to bring convergence across desktop, tablet and mobile. So, I think they better prioritize on achieving that first, rather than deviating to compatibility with other mobile platforms (Android, Sailfish, Blackberry, etc). Ubuntu's long time users have been waiting too long to see the new improvements (Unity 8, Mir, Snappy, etc) on desktop. I don't think it's fair to make them wait again.
Besides, for those who really need to run apps from other platforms, 3rd party runtimes/emulators can always fill in the gap. And as Ubuntu already supports HTML5 (with Cordova extension) natively, it's easy for devs to port webapps/hybrid apps (like the Phonegap based ones) from Android, Firefox OS, Tizen and basically every other modern mobile OS.

There certainty is some press coverage of the new HP compute stick running Ubuntu . I have noticed that some of the reviews lead the reader to believe that the Ubuntu offering is substandard due to hardware specs and the lack of bundled anti-virus software. Just my two cents .

Hello,
if you do Ubuntu apps on QtQuick you might wanna check out QML Material project.
https://github.com/papyros/qml-material

There is also a stupid screencast on PapyrOS playing on mobile size, just to demo the scaling of the desktop. Kinda like Unity8.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WF0BHkpgh5c

Ps. And sorry for the broken sound on tube. Just turn it off  or something :D

According to OMG Ubuntu - All (current alpha) releases are based on the same version of the Linux Kernel (3.19 unstable) but will shortly transition over to the recently released Linux Kernel 4.1.

The first ever official LEGO game is now available on Ubuntu, aimed at kids of course. Pretty big news considering how small in desktop share we still are.
Our very first official LEGO game is now available on Linux, but is it worth your time? I took a look with our caster Samsai.

"Unsafe software? - Add more unsafe software!"

How is that possible? The german new +CHIP​​​​ publisher even is producing an extra edition in 08/2015 about tons of Windows - "add-ons".

UBUNTU / OpenBSD strategy, after that nasty SSL bug, is to directly remove any unsafe code and rewrite from scratch, e.g. unsafe #OwnCloud software, written in #PHP. Now being rewritten in Go, which, by design, should be considered as "safe" programming language / environment. See #LXD, written in #Golang.

Same for Google browser and inherently unsafe encryption protocols. Removed!

What's your opinion?

+Nic Las​​​​​​​ OWASP ruleset database sais so, yes. Snort - same. There is nothing unsafer on earth, than PHP based software. Wordpress, Drupal - swiss cheese.

Same sais John Graham-Cumming from #Cloudflare in his video, where he explains, how they are securing high volume websites, e.g. #Reddit, with LuaJIT engine driven kernel packet filters. See PFlua project on github.

Some days ago I got the invite to by a Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition, but there was only the golden model left so I decided to wait and buy the white one later.

Today I tried again to get the non-golden one, but instead beeing able to buy the phone this message was displayed:

Based on our email validation, this is not a winning invite. Please try your luck again on the origami wall.

Do you have the same problem? What did you do?

RedHat vs. Ubuntu containers - which one is more secure?

How much a single character can influence security, you may get an idea by executing this code:

int n=10000,b,c=5600,d,e,f[5602],g;main(){for(;b-c;)f[b++]=n/5; for(;d=0,g=c*2;c-=14,printf("%.4d",e+d/n),e=d%n) for(b=c;d+=f[b]n,f[b]=d%-g,d/=g---,--b;d=b);}

G+ may change characters, so take this code: http://codepad.org/coJOcSsx

Result: 31415926535897..... Surprising, isn't it? Change a single character - Pi ceases to exist. Exactly that happend in SSL code. An undetected, missing colon! Result: No security.

RedHat uses #SELinux to secure its containers, Ubuntu uses #Apparmor.

The problem: SELinux was contributed by U.S. governed N.S.A. global surveillance institution. What motivation should a U.S. surveillance institution have to contribute code to Linux? NSA is using Windows Server - without exception! U.S. government is Microsofts biggest customer!

After Snowden revelations it now should be clear for everybody, that NSA only could have one motivation: Implementing a security bug, that finally will give U.S. authorities full access to SELinux secured hosts.

Background: U.S.A. is trying to gain strategical advantages over industries, economies, countries, foreign politics with that. Stop it!

With #NSA code, it's like code from untrusted sources: Remove it!

Same for VMware ESXi, vSphere, based on Linux kernel 2.4. Remove! Under any circumstances!

What's your opinion?

+Johannes Gowin​​​​​ You are a funny guy, Mr. <new google account>.

I seem to have stirred up a hornet's nest.

Everybody here is desperately trying to convince me to trust that stupid NSA coded SELinux module, after my suspicion, that this code contains a trojan horse.

Draw your own conclusions.

E5 for me.
299€ for now doesn't justify the hardware. E5 is a great pack, too bad they didn't launch it back in March, I would purchase that one, now I have E4.5.
