Linus could be very easily regarded as one of the most influential peoples of last century who created a software that serves as the foundation of the 21st-century computing. Notably, he changes the technology twice — first with the Linux kernel, and again with Git, the source code management system being used all over the world by developers to maintain their code.

As Pa Bailey might have put it, it’s deep in the race to want to run GNOME on your tablet. At last year’s Libre Graphics Meeting in Toronto, pippin displayed GNOME on his Lenovo MIIX 3 Bay Trail device. A few months later I was able to pick up an ASUS T100TA with similar specs (if not as elegant) for a good discount. Adam Williamson’s latest Fedlet release was days old at the time, and I installed it.
I can go through ubuntu and install, but the bios refuses to recognize a bootable partition on my drive. Also, during installation I get the error "this partition label contains no BIOS Boot Partition".
The options in the bios are extremely.... limited.

Ubuntu founder has always provided colorful codenames in alphabetical order and the 16.10 release, due out in in October 2016 will be no exception. Last week, Ubuntu 16.04 the Xenial Xerus, debuted so its now time to pick the 'Y' name.
Mythbuntu 16.04 has been released. This is our third LTS release and will be supported until shortly after the 18.04 release.
The GNOME3-forked Cinnamon Desktop is ready for its 3.0 milestone.

Cinnamon 3.0.0 succeeds Cinnamon 2.8 and adds an option for showing/hiding the favorite box in the menu applet, new default application buttons, changes to the sound settings, effects on dialogs and menus are enabled by default, power setting improvements, and many bug fixes.
It is common in user interfaces to provide the user with a list of elements which can be reordered by dragging them around. Displaying a list of elements with Qt Quick is easy, thanks to the ListView component. Giving the user the ability to reorder them is less straightforward. This 3 article series presents one approach to implementing this.
So, finally, the wait is over. The result of GSoC selections is out and Voila! my proposal has been accepted and is now a GSoC project. I would like to thank KDE community, my mentor, and co-mentors for their support and giving me an opportunity to be a part of this programme. I will be working on the project LabPlot (KDEdu) which is a KDE-application for interactive graphing and analysis of scientific data. LabPlot provides an easy way to create, manage and edit plots.
I just realized this morning it's been four years since I was out at Valve HQ learning the early, exclusive details about their Steam Linux plans (and what would become SteamOS and Steam Machines) from Gabe Newell and their Linux cabal.
If you weren't a Phoronix reader back then, there's our exclusive (from the time) Valve's Gabe Newell Talks Linux Steam Client, Source Engine article. It's some fun weekend reading or to reminisce!
A really impressive new indie game is now available for Linux, Steam, Mac and Windows PC. Vector 36, a futuristic physics-based racing game, now been made available for Linux and SteamOS.
The Other 99 looks like a pretty good entry to the single-player action & survival section, and it's releasing into Early Access with Linux support soon.
I generally much prefer the single-player survival games (apart from Don't Starve), as they are able to focus on a much nicer user experience.
With a lot of survival games now available on Linux, it will have to be pretty good to stand out from the crowd. The teaser trailer certainly has me intrigued.
I am a bit of a sucker for space strategy games and Solar Division certainly looks unique enough to give it a mention. It's also not in Early Access, it's a full game, so that's nice.
Hey All, Just thought of posting my experience installing Ubunutu on hp spectre x360 15t. It took multiple tries to install and I was finally able to Kubuntu into this machine along with Windows 10. Everything seems to be working fine, including wifi, vpn, audio, video, touch screen, HP active pen, keyboard backlight, function keys like Fn+Brightness control, Fn+volume, etc. I have not seen any issues so far and also getting a great battery life over 10+ hours with active development work. still testing the battery life part.
My Configuration: i7 6500U, 16gb, 1080p
