The Trisquel GNU/Linux distribution was born nine years ago as a local college project but soon started to grow into a more general purpose operating system. Since 2008 it has been providing a libre Ubuntu based derivative, and has just published its latest major upgrade. Many challenges lay in the way of making a fully featured and fully free...
Some months ago we set up a Jabber service at the Trisquel servers, and after testing it, we've decided to activate the creation of accounts for all our associate members.
To begin using this service, just point your client of choice to the member.trisquel.info sub-domain, entering the same login and password information you use to access your account at this website.
Don't forget to check SSL access for better privacy (using port 5223), and you're ready! If you have doubts about the XMPP protocol, Jabber or chatting matters in general, our associate member...
Two weeks ago we finally managed to send the first batch of Trisquel USB keys to our associated members. We sent a confirmation email once we had the envelopes ready as we thought that maybe some of you had changed postal address since then. As only about half of the messages sent got replied, we guess people change email addresses as well ;-)
So, if you received the message but thought it was some kind of...
This year's GNOME GUADEC international conference just started today, and will include Trisquel's participation by the hand of its director Rubén Rodriguez, who will give a lightning talk tomorrow 27th and a one hour BoF gathering next monday 30th.
Both events (entitled "The GNOME Desktop in Trisquel, not taking things for granted") will focus on the problems we encountered with our last release regarding GNOME 3x, mainly the requirements for 3D acceleration and how that relates to user freedom. We will try to make some constructive criticism and start a debate with the GNOME community.
Since we started our donating program a year and a half ago, and the membership program a year after that, we already demonstrated what an awesome community we have. We currently have around 30 members and donations keep going up. Thanks so much!
But still, we are very far from our goal of having 100 supporting members before 2012. If you are still not a member, we compel you to join in and help make this project economically self-sustained. And if you are a member, we ask you to brag about it as much as you can! Tell others about the project, ask fellow users to join, write about it in your blogs and social palatforms, be Trisquel ambassadors.
By the way, we will soon be...
We have a new project, a live -and installable- CD/USB image running the latest Sugar learning platform:
"The award-winning Sugar Learning Platform promotes collaborative learning through Sugar Activities that encourage critical thinking, the heart of a quality education. Designed from the ground up especially for children, Sugar offers an alternative to traditional “office-desktop” software."
This new project will improve the Trisquel Edu system, providing a nice educational environment for first grade students. We hope this will...
It seems that Trisquel is getting the attention from the specialized press, as the last issue from the well known magazine PC Actual has just arrived to the streets including for the second time our beloved operating system.
This time the editorial has picked the 2.1 32 bit home version of the distro for the GNU/Linux section of their DVD.
So, there you have just another way of getting your Trisquel copy, enjoy!
By reviewing the statistics of the server we where glad to find that, as it happend with recent releases, the one for the 2.1 version reached every corner of the internet. We have found posts about the release in english, chinese, arabic, french, italian, corean, polish...
Lots of them talk about the GNU/FSF recomendation, and almost every one express interest about the educational edition, but the one thing that is common for all is that the comments are all very good....
