  • The LibreOffice 6.0 release at the end of January was met by enthusiasm from tech bloggers and open-source enthusiasts alike. And that enthusiasm translated into some very healthy download numbers. LibreOffice 6.0, the latest version of the hugely popular open-source office suite, has been downloaded almost 1 million times in two weeks. Stats shared by The Document Foundation, the company that oversees LibreOffice development, reveal that the free office app has scored 969,108 downloads since release on January 31, 2018. OMGUbuntu Open Source Office is a live and well.
  • We’re focusing our efforts on a great Twitter experience that’s consistent across platforms. So, starting today the Twitter for Mac app will no longer be available for download, and in 30 days will no longer be supported. Twitter I guess they relaized their web version was better.
  • During an onstage conversation at Recode’s Code Media on Feb. 12, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki called YouTube Red a music streaming service — which is the first time any executive from the company has referred to YouTube Red as foremost a music service. This differs from comments that other YouTube executives have made in the past, including YouTube’s head of global content Susanne Daniels, who last year described YouTube Red as a premium subscription streaming service that offers Hollywood-quality shows and movies. Launched in October 2015, YouTube Red has always been positioned by YouTube as three services in one: It offers ad-free access to all of YouTube; it’s a music streaming service that also gives access to Google Play Music; and it’s consistently releasing original movies and TV shows, starring Hollywood talent and homegrown stars that users already subscribe to. DigiDay I like YouTube Red but to me its a few services in one great service I hope they don’t change anything with the service.

    FreeBSD Has A New Code of Conduct

    The FreeBSD Project is inclusive. We want the FreeBSD Project to be a venue where people of all backgrounds can work together to make the best operating system, built by a strong community. These values extend beyond just development to all aspects of the Project. All those given recognition as members of the Project in whatever form are seen as ambassadors of the Project. Diversity is a huge strength and is critical to the long term success of the Project. To that end we have a few ground rules that we ask people to adhere to. This code applies equally to everyone representing the FreeBSD Project in any way, from new members, to committers, to the core team itself. These rules are intended to ensure a safe, harassment-free environment for all and to ensure that everyone feels welcome both working within, and interacting with, the Project. This document is not an exhaustive list of things that you should not do. Rather, consider it a guide to make it easier to enrich all of us and the technical communities in which we participate. This code of conduct applies to all spaces used by the FreeBSD Project, including our mailing lists, IRC channels, and social media, both online and off. Anyone who is found to violate this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from FreeBSD Project controlled spaces at the discretion of the FreeBSD Code of Conduct Committee. Some FreeBSD Project spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.  FreeBSD
