Uma mensagem da equipe de Segurança do Mandriva

Bom, a versão 2010.2 é a versão corrente, não? Creio que isso crie um espaço de insegurança, visto que a versão 2011 ainda não foi lançada 😦

[Novas informações] As atulizações continuarão sendo disponibilizadas até o lançamento da versão 2011 final. 😉

Olá pessoal,

Em nome da Equipe de Segurança da Mandriva, venho apenas deixar um recado de que o ciclo de vida das versões Mandriva 2010.1 e 2010.2 chegou ao fim. Elas continuarão recebendo atualizações de base do sistema por mais 6 meses.

Sobrevivendo ao meu 1º smartphone (Xperia X8)

Há pouco mais de um mês comprei meu primeiro smartphone, foi algo completamente não planejado e aleatório, afinal pouco conheço sobre esses aparelhos.

Foi numa tarde de quinta-feira, ao passar em frente a uma loja Oi, vi uma propaganda do plano Oi 110 + smartphone pela bagatela de dez vezes de XX reais, após isso, pagaria somente o plano! Olhei os modelos, e me interessei pelos Androids (a oferta com iPhone sairia dez vezes de XXX reais 😛 ).

Mas antes de adquirir um, fiz uma pesquisa rápida na intert, e me deixei influenciar por essa postagem:

Então comprei o plano com o Xperia X8, afinal eu nunca tive problemas com a Sony (fora a queda da PSN) 😀

And now, our first RC of Mandriva 2011 is at your reach!

Hi folks,

as told yesterday, Mandriva 2011 RC1 images were waiting just the final testing and retouches to become available. And now I am glad to tell you that they should be already available on your favorite mirror!

Please forgive us for the delay, but we believe that it would be better to take some additional hours (or, in this case, almost an entire day) to carry out the final tests, certify that everything works as good as we can polish it for a RC-release quality, and improve some things which we don’t like (such as some misplaced fonts, some low-res images, and some small issues with dkms pre-compiled drivers – yes, full UI integration is never easy). In return, I believe that we are giving you now a much more tested glimpse of what Mandriva 2011 will look like.

So, grab the iso from your favorite mirror, run it live, run it in virtual machines, install it, give it to your friends – and, most importantly, have fun!

openSUSE Continues Brazilian Blaze!

via openSUSE News de Bryen Yunashko em 28/06/11

Continuing the great work of our Ambassadors of the Southern Hemisphere, our Brazilian openSUSE team once again gets ready for a strong openSUSE presence in Brazil beginning today at FISL 12-Software Livre in beautiful Porto Alegre. A major FOSS event in South America, FISL 12 is expecting 8,000 attendees this year.

The openSUSE Brazilian Ambassador team has been making strong inroads introducing not just our distro but also our many Project offerings, such as the Open Build Service, SUSE Studio, and Edu-L-Ife. openSUSE has played such an important role from the classroom to the corporate offices across the country and most importantly, building community within Brazil.

So, if you just happen to be in the Porto Alegre area (or heck, if you feel the urge to jump on a plane from anywhere in the world right now) hop on down to FISL 12 and stop by the openSUSE Booth. The team will be in force and will be ready to answer all your questions about openSUSE and give you free LiveDVDs. You can also catch them throughout the event giving talks on OBS, Edu-L-Ife, giving general updates about the latest in the openSUSE Project. And you won’t want to miss the openSUSE Community Meeting where you get to express your views and support for openSUSE.

It’s definitely an event you won’t want to miss, and it’s all happening right there in Porto Alegre. So stop by as soon as you can.
