Hash: SHA1

Debian on the FreeRunner -- now official

,----[ Quote ]
| the FSO packaging team of the Debian project[1] is happy to announce
| that we have started to provide installation procedures and packages
| required to have your FreeRunner[2] run Debian-powered.
| This means that you can use your favorite tools such as apt-get and the
| other >20.000 packages on your FreeRunner, including the
| freesmartphone.org[3] software stack. You can also develop applications
| for your FreeRunner the “Debian way”.


DefCon 16: Hackers and a Gag Order in Sin City

,----[ Quote ]
| DefCon is definitely an event that serious computer aficionados should 
| consider visiting and remember, "What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas". 
| Unless of course a Federal Judge imposes a gag order on it.  


DebConf Gallery

| We would like to encourage people who have taken pictures around DebCamp, 
| DebConf and DebianDay to upload them to gallery.debconf.org. 




First Openmoko Custom Phone Now Available and Wears a Debian Plaid Kilt

,----[ Quote ]
| The Openmoko Neo Freerunner phone was released only a few weeks ago, and
| already, a customized version called the W.E. Phone is now available for
| purchase. So what's the difference between the naked-as-a-baby Neo and the
| Canadian-based W.E.? The latter comes with a full bundle of custom Google
| applications, on top of the core GNU/Linux OS base with dialing, SMS and
| contacts.


OpenMoko Neo Freerunner - Part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Openmoko, born as a Free Software project under  GPL and LGPL license, is
| dedicated to delivering an open software stack on mobile platforms. Openmoko
| shipped its first product, the Neo 1973, on July 9 2007; and then turned into
| a start-up company with one aim: create great mobile products using the
| Openmoko stack: Open. Mobile. Free.
| The first Openmoko product, the Neo 1973, sold exclusively through Openmoko
| Online Shop. It sold out in early February 2008.
| Openmoko started selling the Neo FreeRunner (GTA02), the second generation of
| Neo, on July 3, 2008. It is available through the Openmoko Online Shop or
| national distributers.
| I received my FreeRunner as part of the first batch of orders shipped on July
| 7th.  I've now been playing with it for 10 days and these are my impressions.
| [...]
| All said and done I really like the phone.  And, like the main devs, am
| hesitant to call it a "phone".  It is really a handheld Linux computer that
| happens to have GPS and a GSM phone built-in.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
