Sunday 24th of July 2016 11:37:35 AM

I'm currently planning to build Linux based scientific calculator using ARM based board such as PocketCHIP. I'm currently wondering it is good idea or not.

If I install GNU Octave, Gnuplot, Julia and good text editor on it, can it serve as usable calculator? If not, what is your opinion?

Reddit: What Do I Buy My...

Sunday 24th of July 2016 08:21:05 AM

...in my case, wife. ;)

Admin: I'm a long time Linux user/admin and am not intimidated by setup, but I do need something that will work reliably.

I'm looking for a laptop with specs that will get her decent battery life and relatively full functionality. Her primary needs are email, browsing, and video consumption. I would go with a Chromebook something, but I'd really rather get a machine a few steps closer to open and with a bit more flexibility. What should I buy?
