Samsung is bringing DESKTOP LINUX to its smartphones!

The mobile giant has this week announced the ‘Linux on Galaxy’ project that, it says, will give smartphones the capability to “run Linux-based distributions on mobile devices”.

So if you dream of using the smartphone in your pocket as a desktop Linux PC, you’ll be pleased to know that Samsung clearly shares it.

Hey #KDE
you may not know this but um,
I don't need nor want to download a keychain to go with my tablet configuration utility???

Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.


I personally find #Linux (currently Ubuntu MATE, but I've used a few other distros over the years) much more comfortable to spend my time in than Windows.

And don't get me wrong, I actually liked Windows 7. Probably the best version they ever had from my point of view. But when it comes down to it, on a simple basis of feelings, that Linux is home to me. Never mind open source, never mind underlying code. It just feels good to use.

Shit. Any #linux #debian #ubuntu familiar people around have any advice on how to get past this perlmagick issue? I'm stuck and the internet is so far not helping.

While I was far away from , they added a little new feature: you can now download the core.gz file from the network!

What is your dream distro? What should it be able to do?

Is there a #smartphone with qwerty, stylus (with pressure sensitive) and #Linux or #Android at once? o_O #gadgets #wtf

I might or might not be doing a book on guiding you to making yet another distro thingy. I'll wire back. 😉

#Ubuntu #Linux (et donc ses dérivées, comme #Mint) vient de sortir un patch à l'attaque “Key reinstallation” de #WPA2. (Et #WinOuin ?)

Mastodon dis moi, tu connais un #GUL (ou un #LUG ), une #association qui fait du logiciel libre ou du #linux du côté de #Dieppe ?
Je vais m'installer par là d'ici quelques semaines et ça me tenterait de participer à une structure sympa.

So this is a thing that exists. Note that the link below the fold is NSFL and should be opened in an incognito tab. Show more

There literally is a man page for "splain". You can do "man splain" in a #linux terminal and it works!
