I found this awesome graphic at Mozilla Development Center.

From Mozilla Development Center: This graphic was first designed at the 2006 Firefox Developer’s Summit by Sean Martell based on an idea from Chris Beard, this graphic became a smash hit at the SWSW conference in 2007. Now available as a desktop wallpaper in a variety of sizes.

Please don't hurt the Web

As you can see in my previous post; I told you that

A lot of thing are coming into my mind. They deserve to be in my blog.

Now they are. As stated in the title, I’m now moving another step away from Windows. Don’t be confused! I’m not at all hating Windows. I’m just getting more and more good feeling with Open Source software. You might say, “you work with OpenSource, so you never like Microsoft”. Say it! I don’t mind. 😉

Let’s come to what I want you to know. Ok, here is it…


It’s Ubuntu? No. It’s an application that always make me switch to Windows everytime I want to upload picture to my flickr account.

As most of you know already, flickr is a very famous digital photo sharing website. We can upload our picture and use them in other website by linking to the URL of the picture (just like I used here). To make it more easier, flickr provided an uploader application which can be installed and run in our computer. Unfortunately, that application works only in Windows (as far as I know). This is a pain for me since I’m not staying too much with Windows. I have to switch to my Windows XP to be able to upload my favorite pictures. Actually, we can also upload via website but most of the time it did not work for me. flickr looks not so friendly to my Konqueror. I have to use Firefox instead.

As you can see above, I was in Ubuntu. So yes, I was in Linux. By using Kflickr, I can now upload any picture to my flickr account from my favorite Linux operating system (now there are 3: SUSE, Ubuntu and Kubuntu).

You may still not believe. Ok, let’s see inside my flickr account…


Yesterday I got a box from SUSE. It’s a gift for my participation in testing and sending the bug that related to Khmer language in SUSE 10.1.

There were 6 installation CDs, 1 DVD (equivalent to those 6 CDs), start-up manual, and a brochure from Linux Magazine.

The whole box was still close with the plastic. Its slogan also caught my attention. It was “Everything you need to get started with Linux”.

Teared the plastic and saw what were inside…

6 installation CDs and 1 DVD.

This is a great present for me. I remembered the first time I started to work on SUSE translation, Karl Eichwalder, one of the SUSE people in charge of translation stuff, told me that I’ll not get any money from SUSE if I work on the translation. Instead, SUSE will offer me a box of the product. Now it got it. I’m so happy to keep and, of cause use it.

Cheer SUSE!

ឥឡូវ​ខ្ញុំ​សូម​និយាយ​ពី​ប្រវត្តិ​របស់ Ubuntu បន្តិច…

Ubuntu គឺ​ជា​ពាក្យ​មួយ​របស់​ភាសា​អាហ្វ្រិក​ខាង​ត្បូង ដែល​មាន​ន័យ​ថា “humanity towards others” ។ វា​ចេញ​ផ្សាយ​ក្នុង​រយៈពេល ៦ ខែ​ម្ដង ហើយ​វា​ប្រើ Gnome ជា​បរិស្ថាន​ផ្ទៃតុ ។ មិន​បាច់​គិត​ច្រើន​ថា​តើ Gnome ហ្នឹង​ស្អី​គេ ! វា​មាន​តួនាទី​ជា​អ្នក​បង្ហាញ​ផ្នែក​ក្រាហ្វិក​ទាំងអស់​របស់​ប្រព័ន្ធ​ប្រតិបត្តិការ​លីនុច ។ បើ​គ្មាន​វា អ្នក​នឹង​គ្មាន​ថ្ងៃ​ឃើញ​ទិដ្ឋភាព​ក្រាហ្វិក​ផ្សេងៗ​ឡើយ ។

ហើយ​នេះ​គឺ​ជា រូបភាព​ដែល​ស្ថិត​នៅ​គម្រប​ស៊ីឌី​របស់​វា (យើង​អាច​ស្នើសុំ​ស៊ីឌី​របស់​វា​ដោយ​សេរី តាម​រយៈ Ship it) ៖


រីឯនេះ​វិញ គឺ​ជា​រូបភាព​វា​ទាំងមូល​តែ​ម្ដង (ចុច​ដើម្បី​មើល​រូបភាព​ធំ) ៖


ហើយ​អានេះ​ជា​រូបតំណាង​របស់​វា ៖


As a man in Khmer Software Initiative project (known as KhmerOS), I had joint the 7th Cambodia Civil Society Forum Fair organized in Phnom Penh on 9-10th June 2006. There are about 60 local NGOs and communities showing their achievement. Many Khmer products can be found during this show. Yes, this fair aimed to promote Khmer products.

As you can see at [1], KhmerOS provided some Khmer software CDs for free to the people. In that CD, there is a bunch of software that people need for their daily computer life (running on Windows) starting from internet/email program (Mekhala and Moyura, the Khmer customized version of Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird) to office application (OpenOffice 2.0).

SUSE Linux 10.1, the first Linux operating system that works well with Khmer out of the box, was also shown during the fair. Many people seem to be interested in it very much. They asked for it but unfortunately KhmerOS could not provide it for free. People have to exchange their blank CDs. And after telling, some people went out for a few minutes and came with 6 blank CDs.

There are also some picture taken during the fair. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Khmer software CDs labeled “Use and Distribute for free” in the top of CD. There were also five icons representing the CD content. Starting from the left: Khmer Unicode (standard Khmer keyboard layout and Khmer unicode fonts), OpenOffice, Mekhala, Moyura and Khmer Unicode typing program. People that did not get the CDs were invited to the upcomming event organized by KhmerOS project. It’s called Installation Party where people can just come and bring their laptop and PC case to KhmerOS office to get Khmer software installed.

SUSE Linux 10.1 CDs labeled “Khmer Computer Operating System” and “Use and Distribute for free” in Khmer
