Lanedo has been involved in many Open Source projects over the years. Below are just some of those which we’re currently contributing to. In reality there are too many projects to list here, so here are the most popular ones.
LibreOffice is the free power-packed Open Source personal productivity suite for Windows, Macintosh and Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base.
NetworkManager is a set of co-operative tools that make networking simple and straightforward. Whether WiFi, wired, 3G, or Bluetooth, NetworkManager allows you to quickly move from one network to another: once a network has been configured and joined once, it can be detected and re-joined automatically the next time its available.
GTK+ is a highly usable, feature rich toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces which boasts cross platform compatibility and an easy to use API. Today GTK+ is used by a large number of applications including the GNU project’s GNOME desktop.
The Linux Kernel was started by Linus Torvalds in 1991 and represents the core nucleus of Linux based operating systems. It acts as a bridge between the data processing done at the hardware level of computers and applications which users use. If new hardware is available, support in the Linux Kernel is often needed before applications can make use of this new technology.
Tracker is a central repository of user information, that provides two big benefits for the user; shared data between applications and information which is relational to other information (for example: mixing contacts with files, locations, activities and etc). Technically it is a semantic data storage for the desktop and mobile devices. Tracker uses W3C standards for RDF ontologies using Nepomuk with SPARQL to query and update the data.
Platforms we contribute to
Many platforms are made up of similar Open Source projects. Lanedo is an avid contributor to Open Source platforms and continues to be a member of their communities!
Chromium OS is an open-source project that aims to build an operating system that provides a fast, simple, and more secure computing experience for people who spend most of their time on the web. Chromium OS is the foundation of Google’s Chrome OS.
Used by millions of people across the world, it is the most popular desktop environment for GNU/Linux and UNIX-type operating systems. The desktop has been utilised in successful, large-scale enterprise and public deployments, and the project’s developer technologies are utilised in a large number of popular mobile devices.
Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform supported by leading mobile operators, device manufacturers, and silicon suppliers. It originated from MeeGo and is aimed at multiple device categories, including smartphones, tablets, netbooks, in-vehicle infotainment devices and smart TVs.
Consortiums we support
Lanedo is proud to be a member of the foundations that support various aspects of Open Source and Free software. This means contributions from Lanedo to ensure these consortiums continue to exist!
The Linux Foundation promotes, protects and advances Linux by marshaling the resources of its members and the open source development community to ensure Linux remains free and technically advanced. Lanedo has been an active member of The Linux Foundation and frequent participant in their events.
The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is a nonprofit organisation with a worldwide mission to promote computer user freedom and to defend the rights of all free software users. Lanedo’s developers are involved in GNU projects and work with the community regularly to help the goals of the foundation.
