By following a combination of Guide 1 and Guide 2 I was able to get CS5 to work very well with Debian, Ubuntu, and Elementary Luna. The most important parts it seems are the Microsoft fonts and the correct winetricks. I am by no means an expert with Linux, and just figured I would share that it DOES work with a bit of elbow grease! UGLY UI - but functionalsubmitted by not26

I may be getting a VME-based trainer soon, and this appealed to me. The master is a Dynatem DPC1, which is a supported board. I would like to build an automated brewery out of it. It has slave boards to do A/D conversion, and a digital output board that could easily be re-purposed to drive relays or solid state switches.
But, more relevant, any experience with using Linux on VME would be nice. The documentation for the site only deals with getting it up and running, it seems.submitted by Stephonovich
I have RSI and I am trying to minimize the amount of pressure on my fingers. I believe that modifiers contribute to it significantly and would prefer to use the modifiers in sequence instead of holding them and then pressing the right key.
In other words, I'd like to press shift quickly, and then a letter to get the uppercase.
Do you have any hints about how to achieve that? Thankssubmitted by redditmat

Cinnamon, a Linux desktop environment developed by the same team that is also building Linux Mint, has been updated yet again, although this time it's a rather small progression.
Kickstarter is showing an $899, Android-based “Mind4″ follow-me drone that tracks you entirely by computer vision, and interprets full-body gestures.
Like fellow Kickstarter drone projects AirDog and Hexo+, as well as 3D Robotics’s Iris+, AirMind’s Mind4 quadcopter is designed as a “follow-me” drone for recording videos of a moving target. Unlike these products, however, which don’t run Android or Linux, the Mind4 runs Android on a quad-core, 2GHz ARM processor, giving it the brainpower to run advanced vision recognition algorithms. As a result, Mind4 can track you solely via computer vision via its VAPS (vision augmented piloting system) engine rather than depending on less reliable GPS or tricky manual controls.
The ArrayFire GPU compute library that allows for simplified GPU computing via targeting its own optimized library and API for GPGPU kernel generation than writing your own CUDA/OpenCL kernels, has been open-sourced.
ArrayFire is advertised as being faster than other acceleration libraries like Armadillo, Intel Math Kernel Library, etc. ArrayFire supports OpenCL GPUs -- and hardware like the Intel Xeon Phi MIC -- as well as NVIDIA GPUs via CUDA. Last but not least there's also a C programming back-end.
The Interstellar movie has been released not long ago and it was an instant success, despite some of the criticism that has been expressed by a number of physicists. To make thinks even more interesting, at least for Linux users, it looks like the production team used Linux to built the black hole in the movie.
It used to be that open source software was released only as source code and had to be compiled wherever it was needed. Obviously, that's changed. Today, some will even tell you that compiling source is an improper and problematic way to install software. Tomorrow, it may become more standard than they think.
While compiling source is still the basis of many BSDs (though you can get binary packages easily enough), package management came to Linux early on with RPM and branched out everywhere ever since. Package support on Debian and Ubuntu is simply massive. Fedora has a huge number of packages, as do RHEL and CentOS, though the packages available for the latter are generally far older for legacy and stability reasons.
Chromebooks, the low-cost compute devices that run Google’s Chrome OS, haven’t necessarily been showcased in Black Friday circulars, but they’re making an impression nonetheless. Although prices vary, Chromebooks generally range from $200 to $350 or so, and now come loaded with up to 1TB of Google Drive storage, too.
After many hours of reading/fiddling/reconfiguring I’ve given up on Systemd.
