Although you have exchanged public keys with your remote server to avoid that boring bit of entering your super long secure user password everytime you are about to login, you still need to face ssh syntax in order get someting done. Yes, it is just single line command with few words but typing that line 30 times a day can take you at least 10 minutes of problem solving time, bore you and more iportatbly it may even give you a headache.
The Romanian software developer Bogdan Vatra has announced a first alpha version of his Qt implementation for the Android mobile operating system. The release might be timed just right for many developers, since Nokia has, in the context of its cooperation with Microsoft, announced that it does not intend to develop a Windows Phone variant of the GUI framework. On the other hand, more than a few Qt users are probably interested in developing software for Android devices rather than using Silverlight or the XNA framework to develop software for Microsoft's mobile platform.

As promised, the first ISO of Mageia, Alpha 1 (code name Cantine) should be available soon on a mirror near you (or rather, on a mirror on the same planet as you): 32 bits DVD iso and 64 bits DVD iso (live CD will come for next releases). Another piece of good news, we have put all the rpms on the mirrors so fearless developers and testers can do an upgrade from their Mandriva Linux 2010.2 systems. (You may try upgrading from Cooker, but be aware of the various rpm5 issues). Anyway, Mageia will only guarantee upgrading from 2010.2 for the final release, so upgrade from Cooker at your own risk!).
With Nokia's recent news of jumping off the Linux bandwagon, it makes this Linux user wonder if a couple years down the road if we are going to have any choice other than Android when choosing a Linux based handset. I keep fairly current on news in the FOSS world, but I had never heard about the LiMo Foundation until a few days ago.
Finally, after many years of people asking for this, Linux can now properly support all known Samsung laptop devices. This means we can now handle backlight control, wifi button issues,and the weird "performance mode" keys as well as some of the other function keys.
