The first week with the final

One week ago, we got our hands on the version of elementary OS Freya, declared as final. Most users didn’t run into problems within the last week, but some problems and new bugs appeared in the release and affected pretty much users. I had very few problems, but some though, for example the cursor bug, which is likely not elementary’s fault. It is just not possible to release a completely flawless operating system, as there will always be some glitch on specific hardware configurations. I think the project faced that and once again gave up on their perfectionism, which already formed the release in its early days. Other projects might have considered their development as finished much earlier. At this point I can say that it works very good, stable and fast, at least most of the time and in most cases. Share your opinion on and experiences with the final release!

Patreon Milestone reached

https://www.patreon.com/elementary – With over $500 per month, the elementary project reached its first milestone goal in financial resources. They described it as: “BountySource.com gives us a way to put money into the hands of open-source developers. We want to set up a consistent monthly budget that we can dedicate for this. While $500/mo isn’t enough to support a person full time, it’s enough to get students, contractors, and more working on open-source software instead of closed-source.” This means, the money flows directly to many free developers working on the system. And the monthly value is still growing, with many new “Patrons”. The next milestone to reach would support the project with $1.500, enough for one person working explicitly on the project to “afford the basic necessities of life”. It will be very interesting to see if and when the reach that value.

Support is necessary for the project to stay alive in its current, growing form and Patreon seems to be a suitable opportunity. You can also consider becoming a Patron to support them.

Tip of the week – Configure “Hot Corners”

Hot CornersThe opinions are split about them: “Hot Corners”. Some might find them extremely useful to activate specific functions with one simple move, others tend to be bugged by accidentally activating them. But there’s no reason against trying them once. elementary OS ships different options for the configuration of each corner on the screen. For example you can assign them to minimize the current window, a function which is missing in elementary’s default windows controls, or to show the work-space overview. And there are many more options. Either way, they can be very helpful. Just go to System Settings, Desktop and switch to the Hot Corners’ tab.

Have fun and feel free to share!
