New challenges for Free Software business models https://www.schiessle.org/articles/2019/11/17/new-challenges-for-free-software-business-models/ via @bjoern
This is indeed a very interesting and critical aspect of free software. I watched an excellent talk about more or less exactly the same topic at FrOSCon this year. The speaker presented quite a few more models and discussed their limitations.
Not sure if you've seen it as well? In case you didn't, here's the reference:
@PINE64 Update: The link is now on the start page and points to the store, but the store is still down. Guess we have to stay patient.
November blog post is up! Pinebook Pro, PinePhone, PineTime... even the PineTab! We've got news on all of it.
- great aes-xts-performance (~350 MB/s)
- great usb3-sata-performance (~280 MB/s)
- surprisingly low idle power consumption (~0.5W on the rock64, ~1W on the h64)
Overall: Great hardware, but does not work ootb like A64 yet.
Just received my parcel from #pine64 with a bunch of exciting gear. I am really excited to get my hands on that.
If you need second (or third) Fast Gigabit Ethernet interface on your embedded Linux computer or desktop our Open Source Hardware OSHW USB-Gigabit adapter is what you need! https://olimex.wordpress.com/2019/10/24/if-you-need-second-or-third-fast-gigabit-ethernet-interface-on-your-embedded-linux-computer-or-desktop-our-open-source-hardware-oshw-usb-gigabit-adapter-is-what-you-need/
Enjoying great talks and conversations here at #linuxday in Dornbirn (Austria). Very cool event, it was definitely worth getting up very early this morning to get here.
Come to Plovdiv on October 19th on the Open Source Day event and learn how OSHW is made! We will talk about how to design, produce blank PCBs, assembly, component sourcing, crowdfunding, OSHW certification. Everyone is welcome! https://olimex.wordpress.com/2019/10/04/come-to-open-source-hardware-day-on-october-19th-in-plovdiv-and-learn-about-how-open-source-hardware-is-made/
Seems like #mcdonalds is using Windows for their self-service terminals.
I just learned that all #Xiaomi #LineageOS builds are down due to a #DMCA Takedown. After #Gadgetbridge this is the second time I'm affected as a user. This is ridiculous https://github.com/github/dmca/blob/master/2019/08/2019-08-09-SenseTime-5.md
ST Microelectronics released very interesting new STM32MP1 SOC with Cortex-A7 and Cortex-M3 targeting industrial applications -40+125C, looks like perfect candidate for new OSHW OLinuXino LIME board! https://olimex.wordpress.com/2019/09/03/stm32mp1-nice-candidate-for-new-industrial-grade-olinuxino-lime/
Seriously? Trying #gitter with "sign in via Gitlab" wants me grant access to gitter for accessing my complete Gitlab account:
