I've just installed Lubuntu, and I'm really wanting to run Netflix on it. The catch is, it's a 32 bit system. I have literally no clue on how to get Netflix running on this system. I've tried looking around on the ubuntu forums and they talk about this pipeline stuff and installing this and that... I really haven't found a concise answer and I'm looking for some help.
I'm also a lubuntu noob, so I'm not even sure on how to install programs just yet...submitted by /u/XxMetalMartyrxX
In the hope that this joke never sees the light of day again, Linux distro maker Canonical and drone maker Parrot have joined forces to create S.L.A.M.dunk, a development kit to help design autonomous vehicles that avoid obstacles even in the most innest of indoors.
The system uses a combination of Ubuntu and ROS (Robot Operating System) to provide an environment for prototyping self-driving, 3D mapping or data gathering. Attaching it to a drone turns it into an "intelligent robot", according to Ubuntu.
Do you own an old PC, like the ones that came with windows XP? Well, you don’t have to dump them just yet as they can be brought back to life with these lightweight Linux desktop environments.

Engineer Marc Merlin has been working at Google since 2001 but has been involved with Linux since 1993, in its very early days. Since then, open source adoption has dramatically increased, but a new challenge is emerging: Not many companies care about the license side of open source, Merlin stated in his talk “How Google Uses and Contributes to Open Source” at LinuxCon and ContainerCon North America.
If people need a version of Linux that looks like XP then they could easily go for Q4OS and for people looking for an Apple style interface there is Elementary.
I really liked Zorin when it first came out but I am struggling to see its place in the world now that time has moved on. Many Windows users have become accustomed to Windows 10, Linux users are happy with their desktops of choice and Zorin just doesn't offer as much as Mint and Ubuntu
The fact that Zorin will always lag behind Ubuntu is definitely a downside and Mint is just a better distribution, with better stability, more consistent release cycles and better support.
The Orange Pi series of machines lets you run a small Linux machine dedicated to a specific task for a very attractive price -- less than $20 for setup. Some ideas for using an Orange Pi include adding network connectivity to an older printer, transcoding a USB webcam and sending it over the network, or just connecting some hardware to the 40 pins and being able to interface to chips faster than a microcontroller could.
A year ago, Kali Linux moved to a rolling release cycle in an effort to provide a continuous stream of application updates. Kali Linux is a popular open-source Linux distribution for security professionals, loaded with a growing list of tools for information gathering, vulnerability analysis, web application analysis, database assessment, password attacks, wireless attacks and reverse engineering. Despite Kali Linux's rolling release cycle, it still puts out milestone releases as a roll-up omnibus of changes made over a period of time. The Kali 2016.2 milestone was released Aug. 31. In addition to application updates, it also provides users with a choice of different desktop environments. By default, Kali Linux in the past has provided users with a GNOME desktop although they have long had the choice to load their favorite desktop on their own. With the Kali 2016.2 update, users can now just simply download a version of Kali that already boots with the MATE, LXDE or Enlightenment desktops. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the features of the Kali Linux 2016.2 release.
