I found this project yesterday on IRC and I think it deserves some publicity :) .

QTablet is a fully Qt and QGraphicsView based application framework which main target is internet tablets such as N810. It provides QLauncer for launching applications, Home screen called the Wall and Pager for changing between two virtual desktops and placeholders for minimized application. QTablet uses also Qt Animation Framework for doing transitions between Wall, QLauncher and Pager.

Check out the video, it features virtual desktops, cool animations (without openGL :)) and is also possible to launch hildon apps inside the QT framework. At the moment the installation isn’t straightforward, but deserves a try at lest :) .

Yesterday at VMworld conference, VMware displayed its new mobile virtualisation platform, showing how the technology could let users run two operating systems on the same device at the same time. The device used in the presentation was a Nokia n800, the video bellow show a very good performance, running Android and Windows CE at the same time.

“History of the internet is an animated documentary explaining the inventions from
time-sharing to file-sharing, from arpanet to internet. The clip shows a brief overview
of this history and shall animate to go on discovering the history of the internet.”

Today I found this image in my computer, and decided to share it with the world :)
gnome & ubuntu sugar packet

This sugar packets with the Ubuntu, Gnome and Alinex (Portuguese Ubuntu derivate) logos, was made exclusively for a open source conference/lan party that the Computer science association of student’s of my University (NEEI) organize every year, the conference is called Open Delta aLANtejo. One of our main sponsors was Delta-Cafés, the bigger coffee seller in Portugal, so as part of the promotion of the event they made custom sugar packets, that were distributed for the entire country.

A different way of spread the open source word :)
