Bogota is in the midst of a migration to Linux and free software. Mayor Gustavo Petro is leveraging the existing legal framework ( Agreement 279 of 2007 ), to advance the process of changing operating systems 992 personal computers.
The initiative has been successful in other cities such as Munich in Germany and saved about 11 million euros , or in countries like Iceland plans to migrate its infrastructure to the world of Penguin, is being launched in Bogotá.
According to public documents of the project , the 992 computers are part of the technological renewal that are subject to all public entities. A savings of almost 1000 licenses. The schedule includes customers transition to new mail, messenger clients and mail server. Moreover, the total cost of ownership reflects that invest in training future generating resource savings.
According Offray Luna, coordinator of the Free Software Office of Planning and Information Systems, will change to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, with some modifications, to ease the transition from Windows users. “In the first instance to Ubuntu . While we distance ourselves from some of its practices, was the distribution that we provided a larger responsiveness according to the contractual terms already decided.
Moon added that made two customizations.
Perhaps the strongest change for officials and employees will welcome LibreOffice, productive package that will replace Microsoft Office. In other words Word, Excel and PowerPoint, will now be LibreOffice Writer, LibreOffice LibreOffice Calc and Impress. From now on the cards, balance sheets, presentations and general office all actions will also work with free software. However, productivity is proportional to acceptance and a good training process.
Worth remembering that beyond the savings in licensing, the real advantage and satisfaction of using free software in your philosophy. The free software community is the added benefit of using programs developed in society, and which by law can be studied, copied, modified and distributed without any cost. This means that the user at this time of Linux, for example , is receiving the support of hundreds of thousands of people who participated with their knowledge, not only of a handful of engineers payments for a single company.
Do they consider relevant and necessary change? Who of you use GNU / Linux and free software?

As we know we’re already two weeks to finalize the crowdfunding campaign for Edge http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ubuntu-edge Ubuntu project which is very striking and ambitious, but as the graphs have shown a high impact is required at an angle of almost 45 ° in order to reach the goal, but it is very difficult, people are looking phones already ready, just be pay and have it at home, is the reality of the activity, but you are saying? We know that if the campaign succeeds, the money will be returned to the founders, but would not be pleased that Canonical and this ambitious project is off to the floor, is that Canonical has a card up his sleeve to save the project? Additionally you who suguieren to increase the numbers of the collection? Respond this post if you like.
In my case I can not pay all the phone as my bank does not give me much quota, if so and had given the money as founder. It really is a very expensive phone but very powerful, this same cost has a laptop, but people have not seen this, Ubuntu will be PC and Cell Edge and even beyond would (I think) the same functionality of a tablet. Also not to mention the Dual Boot Android.
In my case, I think, is that we must reach out to the end user with real and tangible demonstrations for them. In my country for example there is much fear of sending money and perhaps losing. Or not getting anything in return. It’s a lot for a common user equipment and looking for something more low I think. Not have in mind the super team that is Ubuntu Edge, really is the super SmartPhone future. You have to open the eyes of people otherwise.
Patrocinador comercial de Ubuntu es el objetivo de recaudar fondos para el desarrollo y la producción de un nuevo Ubuntu-marca móvil llamado #UbuntuEdge durante los próximos 30 días.
Ubuntu Edge será más que “sólo” un teléfono inteligente – que va a ser un ‘super-teléfono, lo suficientemente potente como para hacer doble como un PC tradicional cuando está conectado a un monitor externo. Esto, dicen Canonical, hará que sea “el primer dispositivo verdaderamente convergente del mundo ‘.
Pero primero $ 32 millones tiene que deberán reunirse en los próximos 30 días. Si se cumple este objetivo los teléfonos Ubuntu Edge se producirán en una edición limitada de producción de 40.000 e hizo disponible en mayo de 2014.
Especificaciones de Ubuntu Edge
Ubuntu Edge no habrá ningún ol ‘run-of-the-mill móvil. Canonical están elaborando un dispositivo de comunicación que es de alta costura, quieren fuera de Apple.
Las normas provisionales para ello cuenta con componentes de gama alta, algunos casi nunca se usan en los móviles de los consumidores.
Sabio OS Ubuntu Edge, tal vez lo más sorprendente que se arranque dual Ubuntu Touch y Android. Será capaz de alimentar una experiencia de escritorio Ubuntu completa en un monitor externo.
El proyecto, en vivo por IndieGoGo, es el único mayor campaña de crowdfunding en la historia.
El Pebble smartwatch – hasta la fecha el más exitoso recaudador de fondos – tiene más de $ 10 millones de dólares en Kickstarter de 68.929 partidarios, muchos de los cuales eran promesas de más de $ 100. Canonical necesita 40.000 partidarios de “pre-compra” de un teléfono de 810 dólares para cumplir su objetivo.
Aunque la campaña no logra su objetivo aún podría ser útil al demostrar demanda. Si esto lo suficientemente alto como podría boya el interés de las compañías de telecomunicaciones más cautelosos y fabricantes de teléfonos.
Mark Shuttleworth concluye que inorder para hacer el futuro de la telefonía móvil convergente suceder que tendrán que “… romper todos los registros de crowdfunding historia.
“Pero si hay suficientes entusiastas que quieren lo último en rendimiento, almacenamiento, pantalla, batería y ancho de banda, Ubuntu Edge será el catalizador para la innovación impresionante, y una muestra del futuro del teléfono.”
¿Va a donar?
You all know Google’s decision to close “Google Reader” and was not really any good alternative solution that would integrate with our Ubuntu desktop, all were applications or browser extensions but never generated a total integration with Ubuntu or Unity.
But by chance I found an application that integrates with Feedly, one of my favorite RSS readers, so we are installing.
In the Terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity-webapps-feedly/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install unity-webapps-feedly
And restart your browser!
Support in Precise Pangolin 12.04.2, Quantal Quetzal 12.10, Raring Ringtail 13.04 and Saucy Salamander 13.10]]>

I worked from a flat image of Ubuntu Raring, and I was able to generate the vectorization of the logo in this version, do not know if it exists another version, but I want to share my work with the community. As I did above with the logo of Ubuntu Quantal.
Is the Latin American Festival of Installation of Free Software and is currently broadcast event Free Software in Latin America’s largest. Its main objective is to promote the use of free software, informing the general public philosophy, scope, progress and development. To this end, various communities simultaneously organized events where free software is installed and also offer lectures, presentations and workshops on OpenSource philosophy throughout its range of expression: artistic, academic, business and social. More info: Flisol.net
It is the central event to be held on May 4, 2013 and will concentrate conferences, workshops, booths, hackathon, free culture and day facility under one roof.
Location: District Institute for Recreation and Deport – IDRD
Address: Av 63 # 68-00 Bogotá Colombia

Involvement of Ubuntu in “Flisoles”, is evident in the Wiki FLISOL there already confirmed 16 cities http://flisol.info/FLISOL2013/Colombia which is requested by Andres Mujica Checkout promotional material to Canonical Ubuntu. On the subject tried to install Ubuntu and promoting events in Flisol agreement was reached by a vote of the council of ignoring the warning made by Richard Stallman.
Proposal is presented as the following: Inform users (visitors) about the type of licensing that uses Ubuntu, use proprietary drivers and also recommend disable or uninstall Ubuntu Lens. Or it is second option “Do nothing”
On behalf of the community and the voting starts http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2013/03/28/%23ubuntu-co-meeting.html#t02:53 where it is agreed that Colombia asked to Ubuntu Flisol organizers in Colombia particiación and will ignore the request by Richard Stallman.
AndresMujica: “I honestly think that this question is irrelevent to the matter of this meeting… we’re getting off topic. About disabling or not lens, I believe we’re taking decisions on behalf of end user’s and they are the ones who should decide by themselves, not us. And about informing it should limit to what is worth it, from what I see the first step for a new user is to learn that there’s something besides Windows, once that step is taken they probably would discover easily the Free Software topic and make his/her own informed decisions.
Our mission and focus is not to justify or defend ourselves from RMS, our mission and focus is to extend and take Ubuntu to the ones who aren’t aware of it. There’s nothing real neither concrete that we can do to solve the open or closed drivers issue. The only thing we can do now is to help spread Ubuntu in order to reach the critical mass point required.
At that moment, the very same mass of users will make the vendors to look around and take action.. not before.Canonical doesn’t have the capacity or even the strength to guarantee that everything in the future would be free. In fact, I don’t think that such a document as requested by julianarmando even exists, just because it doesn’t make any sense it’s existence.”
Ubuntu Colombia, in different events Flisol of Colombia, if the organization of each city allows our participation, we will install the following:
Ubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04.2 (for units with optimal hardware)
Lubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04.2 (For teams of “low income”)
// Topic discussed at another meeting that was held staff via IRC which can find the log in http://titanpad.com/jUZBScukwI (the meeting were present in 2 of the 5 members of the council of Ubuntu Colombia, one could say a decision supported since the other three are scattered throughout the rest of the country)
While we consider the “problem” as RSM is from when the default was triggered Lens Amazon (len not say more here) which we can see your ad in the default activation http://www.genbeta.com/linux/
In Ubuntu 12.04.2 is only possible to install this and other activating lens PPA and doing a manual install, unless the user (you should already know about it or listening to) the ask the installer:
For example: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/
As a side note for you, I’m Raring tester Ubuntu since version 4.13 Alpha and this comes with the Lens “Amazon” Deactivate.]]>
