I know that really could be reality. Some of my nokia workmates including me begun planning something big lately. All we need is money, time and good luck. We have already talked a lot about it, we have made several mailings, and drawings with Fedora Electronic Lab, sketches how will be look at the end – but we didn’t found the perfect PCB candidate for our plannings. Until now. We have seen the copyleft licenced Nanonote. And the decision has made. We need similar to this. To create an portable device, what runs purely Fedora itself. An PDA, or/and IP mobile, table device what builds upon open source resources completely A to Z.
The idea came from the first open source chassis – VIA Nanobook. We need only the upper screen part, what we will shrink down to around 8″, adding some keyholes, and that’s it. The heart of this device could be an touchscreen with the Nanonote’s PCB. But there is something what we thinking: to have an X86 based opensourced processor or SoC, to run natively Fedora… But it’s impossible to find such. Still there is hope, but not X86 based: at OpenCores the OpenRISC 1000 or 1200. What is a must, we need as many as possible open source electronic modules to prove it, that we alone could say: We made IT (TM by Linux.com).
But we have an great suite FEL, and we will try our best as our time allows. Guys, wish to us good luck, and anyone who wants to help in design are welcome.

I have came across several Richard Stallmann videos, and a bunch of notes what kind of linux has used by himself to show real free softwares. I have seen Dragora, Ututo, Blag, gNewSense, and others. This made me a bit inspired, and let me thought awhile. If we take Fedora, and we kick out everything that is not GNU, and proprietary also from kernel too by Linux-libre project, how could be used by everyday? How many parts are or will be missed by users?

…then it is possible in return the small wind grows to an hurricane. I have lately begun to gather marketing stuff, I do marketing, and it seems in return I get many positive feedback. First, I have begun to create an short launch video about F13. For sound I have looked for 2 two recording company. One of them is www.spacesoundrecords.com, and the other is www.centaurimusic.com. Both has agreed to use it up their demo songs, with their agreement. I would like to thank you that!
Furthermore, it seems that effect, doesn’t stops here… I *really* enjoy this genre of music, some other producers are also appearing, and they are interested to work with us on further promo stuff…
I have also got the idea, to create F13 mission badges, to have it as buttons or stickers, or both. It really feel the changes, and I really hope that my (our) dream come true. I’m thankfully to Nicu, who has created the design, because I’m still amateur in Inkscape – but I always want to devel, contribute, learn – here in community non-stop.
I know marketing is something like voodoo magic, but Nelson Marques has showed to me lot of aspect, and I still wondering that one Ambassador – how many things could do turned by face to the front line of the public…
This is what I love – teamwork… Not just for us, for everyone… I would like to thank you for everybody… you’re guys and girls are awesome…

I have thought that I change my HDD in my laptop. Dismantled successfully, replaced the new HDD, and tried to install Fedora 12. This was the breeze part. But nothing goes smoothly.. Oops. I have forgot something on the old disk, so, mounted that one to an portable USB/eSata box – and tried to reboot it.
Guess what, doesn’t works. This way will have an booting USB HDD, what fails to boot, and gives the booting process to the other disk. Yeah, i know kernels are different in both disk, but why on earth so hard to mount without hitch OUR LVM partitions, reboot back to the old one??

I have found this quite interesting FSF movie. I think it’s worth to watch or download.

I say opening the gates / limitations isn’t a bad thing. When a company says that liberates up an software – could mean good and bad things too.
This time good things are going to happen. I would like to suggest an really big and cool software piece: Lightworks, what is going to open sourced by EditShare (URL). This is an awesome video editor, what has the similar quality level as Final Cut Pro. Currenty we have only very mature / function limited easy to use video editor in Linux, like PiTiVi, or Openshot – but when Lightworks comes into the field then I feed my eyes with huge joy. Used by editors such as Chris Gill and multi Oscar-winning Thelma Schoonmaker, Lightworks offers intuitive controls, advanced real time effects, 2K native support with DPX or RED, and multi-camera editing features that remain unmatched.
I have already registered, when this pearl comes out, I must be there….. I really hope that software will have such a licence that we will see it back on our repository.
