Mi Notebook Air 12.5″ with openSUSE Tumbleweed

Well … I bought new machine for fun. Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 12.5″ (http://xiaomi-mi.com/notebooks/xiaomi-mi-notebook-air-125-silver/). It was good machine. Good price, comparing to Apple Macbook 12. 🙂

I killed Microsoft Windows Chinese version that already on it. Replace it with BlankOn Linux for a while. My plan exactly put openSUSE Tumbleweed.

First installation was not good enough. My pointer not working. So I use keyboard for it. Another issue is when USB installer plugged before computer on, installation will not going well (my experience, the system install on USB it self).

After installation finish, everything going well and good.

BlankOn Tambora di Mi Notebook Air 12.5″

Saya iseng mencoba (baca: membeli) Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 12.5″ (http://xiaomi-mi.com/notebooks/xiaomi-mi-notebook-air-125-silver/). Barang datang, dinyalakan, dan langsung babat pasang BlankOn Tambora (http://cdimage.blankonlinux.or.id/blankon/livedvd-harian/current/).

Impresi awal, laptop ini cukup keren dan bagus, kualitas bikinannya juga rapi serta dengan harga yang tidak terlalu mahal.

Instalasi BlankOn cukup berjalan mulus, semua perangkat dikenali dengan baik. Tidak ada kendala yang berarti. Just Work.

Batrenya juga tahan lama. Sementara pemakaian hanya seputar browsing, muter youtube dan nonton filem. 🙂

OpenSUSE Asia Summit 2016

Well, OpenSUSE ASia Summit 2016 is biggest opensource event in Indonesia this year. Last year was GNOME Asia Summit 2015.
This year I promised to Edwin that I will help to find sponsorship. It’s because when GNOME Asia, he also help me. So vice versa.
I travel along with my team mates and GLIB (GNU/Linux Bogor) Community. Most of us are speakers in this event.


I know lot of GNOME Developers or GNOME Foundation Members. But this time, I know more about openSUSE/SUSE Developers and Community Members. I treat some of them Sate Klatak. 😀
I have session at secon day. But at first day, accidently I helping local committee to answer few questions  from audience.
Actually I’m little bit famous in FOSS Community in this country. Hahaha. It’s just because I’m Release Manager of BlankOn Linux since few years ago and I also GNOME Foundation Member. Then in openSUSE, I become Coordinator of Indonesia Translation Team.
