Summary: Starting next month we’ll be writing more posts under Android, the fastest-growing Linux-based OS
TECHRIGHTS has no disclosures to make, but as an Android developer myself, my opinions may be biased. I just happen to prefer open platforms; many developers do.
For over a year now I have been writing almost all articles on a Palm PDA, which uses proprietary software (I have used PalmOS for over a decade). It has a tactile-friendly keyboard. But today I lost an entire article about reasons why Vista 8 is inadequate for business use due to its privacy violations (and reasons beyond that). I lost all the text and then spent a considerable amount of time trying to resurrect it, all in vain. Perhaps now is a good time to just write all the posts on an Android tablet, which actually runs Free software editors and contains Linux at the core. PalmOS has become too long in the tooth.
Late at night I will be leaving home for about 3 weeks. It’s likely that Techrights will be quiet in the interim. Afterwards I will be composing most articles on my Android tablet. My Other Half, who will have been my wife by then, also uses Android, so I guess we’re increasingly dependent on Linux in our mobile life; we both have a B.Sc. in Computer Science as well. Wish us luck in our wedding.
Until next month, we wish everyone a lovely end of summer. Techrights is pretty much guaranteed to carry on as usual for a long time to come. The focus remains patents. It’s the big battle.
