Mycroft is a new device that has been presented initially as a home automation unit, controlled by a powerful AI. That particular AI is being developed as open source, and it will also land on Linux systems. The hope of its makers is that people will adopt it and that users will start talking with their PCs.

The main reason Mycroft is different from all the rest is the fact that its open source and anyone who wants to adapt it or improve it will be free to do so.

This sounds like a perfect thing to tie into wiz' topic on "Linux for the Visually Challenged", although I picture lots of fun when a third party overhears someone saying:


cat /var/log/message | grep -i usb | awk '{print $1,$NF}'

FreeBSD since 3.3, only time I touch Windows is to fix my wife's computer

Regarding post #3

Given that this mycroft is an AI, I wonder whether infact someone has been reading "the moon is a harsh mistress"...
