Open hardware is gaining speed. The appetite for open source vehicles is growing. And while we may not have flying cars yet, we do have Tabby—an open source car design released by Open Source Vehicle this October.
Want to swap out an internal combustible engine for an eco-friendly electric? Tabby can do that. And, this open source vehicle is not just for makers—it’s production ready. Tabby will be rolling off the assembly line in early 2014. Will you see Tabby cruising your streets?
In this interview, we found out more about Tabby and got some insight into the open hardware movement from the team at Open Source Vehicle.
A more thorough, plain English guide to installing SteamOS
Published today are benchmarks from two Intel systems comparing the performance of Fedora 19 "Schrödinger's Cat" to Fedora 20 "Heisenbug" for various workloads. Especially for those using open-source graphics drivers, Fedora 20 can be worth the upgrade for performance reasons.
The prototype Steam Machines Valve recently sent out to 300 lucky beta testers are just prototypes that Valve says aren't indicative of the final form SteamOS-powered devices may take. They have even less in common with the third-party designs already leaking out or the roll-your-own SteamOS machines hobbyists are building.
That doesn't mean there's nothing to be learned from seeing just how Valve builds its first piece of PC gaming hardware, though. iFixit has cracked open a prototype box sent to staffer Christopher Patton.

Just because you're not on Linux doesn't mean you can't have awesome open-source tools. I was having a conversation with a friend and reader on Twitter the other day about music theory. Yes, I'm not just a computer nerd, but a music/math nerd too. Anyway after our conversation, I started looking for an open-source program for creating sheet music.

We are a group of open and free software enthusiasts. Some are students; others work as software developers, testers or have other roles in various open source projects. We all share one passion—KDE.
Last week, we talked about just how important even your smallest contribution to FOSS might be. It doesn’t matter whether you occasionally spend time in forums helping others or if you submit code for review into the kernel. Everything you do goes into the sand pail. Eventually, everything you do filters down to the place it’s needed most: the everyday computer user.
Add the Disper Indicator app to your Ubuntu 13.10 system. The Disper Indicator lets you switch displays, here's how you can install it in Ubuntu 13.10.

With the end of the year quickly approaching, at Phoronix I have been re-testing all of the Linux graphics drivers to see how the performance has changed in 2013 and the features added/removed over the calendar year. I've been doing these annual Linux driver yearly recaps going back to 2005 when Linux GPU drivers were in their infancy compared to Windows. Yesterday I started with the NVIDIA 2013 Linux Year-In-Review of their first-rate binary driver while today I have some performance tests done for Intel's latest-generation Haswell graphics hardware.
U.S. District Judge Richard Leon in the District of Columbia declared Monday that America’s founding fathers would be “aghast” at the NSA’s bulk telephone metadata spying, that it infringes the Fourth Amendment, and the legal precedent a U.S. secret court has been citing to justify its existence is out of date.

Upgrading to Fedora 20, the version of Red Hat's community Linux distribution released this week, from version 19, at least, is broken.
For a recap on this year in open education, it's impossible to ignore the role of gaming, including massively multiplayer open online role-playing games (MMORGs or MMOs). MMOs have created quite a stir in education and are being recognized for their potential for better learning. MMOs differ from single-user games and are a far cry from much earlier video games. First, they are played via the Internet. Second, they enable very large numbers of players to interact with one another in a virtual world. And third, the games continue regardless of whether someone is playing or not.
Magnolia is an open Java CMS that delivers smartphone simplicity on an enterprise-scale.
We can say with great certainty the Fedora Project is pleased to announce the release of Fedora 20 ('Heisenbug'), which coincides with the 10th anniversary of the creation of the Fedora Project. LXDE, the "Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment", is an extremely fast, performant, and energy-saving desktop environment. It maintained by an international community of developers and comes with a beautiful interface, multi-language support, standard keyboard shortcuts and additional features like tabbed file browsing.
An international standards group is seeking to replace the various power cords for portable computers with a single charger that could theoretically power any laptop.
What’s the latest status on all those cool embedded Linux and Android Kickstarter and Indiegogo projects of 2013? Most are moving forward, but delays are a common problem. Crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have emerged over the last two years as a prime launch path for embedded Linux and Android devices. Sometimes it’s hard to decide when to cover these products: when they first launch, or only when they’ve reach their funding goals?
