Re: Not what I was waiting for
I'll 2nd that. The N8 is my first ever symbian phone and it just works - fantastic battery life, solid design, and has enough decent apps it can be used on the car console (sweet driving mode+maps).
My N9 is lovely too (from Malayasia apparently), but battery life is not even close to the N8. Screen is wonderful, and the linux is reassuring. You can hit an icon and broadcast the phone to your desktop, social media etc..
We'll all just have to see what the Jolla/Sailfish folks can bring out...
Re: Suse Studio
The whole openbuild environment is extremely impressive. Especially when you want to hack/build a package without installing everything on your home machine.
I too moved to Suse some time back, originally as a Redhat refugee , but mostly because we have it everywhere at work, and I have 6 desktops around the world, that all look that same...!
If there becomes a way to run android apps on a normal opensuse desktop (not Vbox), I would say we had reached a nice state of being...
Re: Whatever they do, I'm grateful
First - for the indexing stuff ,I couldn't agree more. Just rpm -e the lot of them, and occasionally run updatedb and use GNU locate. Either that, or OpenSuse need to make some more reasonable defaults for what it searches...
There are also some external factors (NVIDIA being one), where these drivers are *critical* to maintain the KDE desktop (or in my case 3D+CUDA) , but are not controlled by OpenSuse. The ftp website, for example, is always lagging behind the latest NVidia drivers, which leaves one with a "compromised" system by using the Nvidia installer rather than rpm.
I have many machines with OpenSuse, because although a linuxhead, I do not want to spend unnecessary time configuring basic stuff, so perhaps this rethink will improve things?
and the winner is....
It would seem that the NHS is big enough to have its own bespoke system - a move to a provably open source framework, would be a first step. Not paying enormous consultants for the "wintel solution of the day" is probably a first step....
but then again...
I was just at SC11, and we really need faster (lower latency) networks for a whole host of tightly coupled scientific problems. This doesn't sound all bad, if it addresses that issue...
