TuxMachines: ROSA Desktop Fresh R7 KDE: nothing to complain... almost

Wednesday 8th of June 2016 09:22:10 AM

ROSA Desktop Fresh R7 KDE left a good impression on me.

Even though the initial boot took about 500 Mb of memory, my laptop with 4Gb of RAM was capable of dealing with all the tasks I ran on it in the Live mode of this distribution in a quick and responsive manner. I felt no lags or glitches.

The only minor things that were worth mentioning in this review were strange design of the panel and the ROSA Menu which isn't to my taste.

Well done, ROSA team, I hope to see your system even more improved in the future.

TuxMachines: First 96Boards CE Extended SBC taps Snapdragon 600

Wednesday 8th of June 2016 09:13:33 AM

eInfochips and Arrow are prepping an open-spec 96Boards CE Extended form-factor SBC with a Snapdragon 600, plus WiFi-ac, BT, GbE, GPS, SATA, and MIPI-CSI.

An “SD 600eval” single board computer, which appears to be a follow-on to the similarly 96Boards compatible DragonBoard 410c from Qualcomm and Arrow, appears to be nearing launch. eInfochips has posted a product page and a $279 price for the Snapdragon 600-based hacker board, which will be sold by Arrow Electronics. eInfochips refers to the board as the SD 600eval, but product images include “db600c” in their names, suggesting it could be announced as the rumored DragonBoard 600c. Considering the high price, it’s also possible a cheaper, somewhat more limited SBC based on the design
could eventually appear under the DragonBoard brand.
