These are the nine best distros for KDE’s Plasma desktop

Tuesday 14th of April 2015 02:02:58 PM

These 'KDE-based' distros offer a better Plasma experience compared to those where you can 'also' install KDE. At some point in time I have used each of these distros as my primary OS except for Mageia and Open Mandriva, which I tried but never used due to uncertainty around their future.

Linux Widens HPC Goalposts

It is well known that the term “high performance computing” (HPC) originally describes the use of parallel processing for running advanced application programs efficiently, reliably and quickly. The term applies especially to systems that function above a teraflop or 10^12 floating-point operations per second, and is also often used as a synonym for supercomputing. Technically a supercomputer is a system that performs at or near the currently highest operational rate for computers. To increase systems performance, over time the industry has moved from uni-processor to SMP to distributed-memory clusters, and finally to multicore and manycore chips. However, for a growing number of users and vendors, HPC today refers not to cores, cycles, or FLOPS but to discovery, efficiency, or time to market. Some years ago, IDC came up with the interpretation of HPC to High Productivity Computing, highlighting the idea that HPC provides a more effective and scalable productivity to customers, and this term fits really well for most commercial customers.

5 of the Best Raspberry Pi Projects Out There

Raspberry Pi, when first launched about two years ago, became an instant phenomenon. After all, who could have thought of a $35 computer that lets you browse the web and does most of your office work? What is even more surprising is the reception it got from average users. Usually, one would expect a bare-minimum $35 board computer that runs Linux to be popular only among developers or geeks. However, as many as 100,000 Raspberry Pi units were sold on the day of its launch eventually selling more than 2.5 million units till date. Completely open-source, Raspberry Pi lets you do most of the basic tasks you'd normally do on a full-fledged desktop. You can browse the web, you can create documents, and you can even play music and watch videos. When it comes to desktop computers, Raspberry Pi is a veritable "Starter's Edition." Since its inception, the project has made common computing available to parts of the world where owning a desktop was once considered a luxury. Moreover, it has also spurred a flurry of interesting projects that take this tiny superboard to a whole new level. If you are ready to show your creative, geeky side, then read on as we cover some of the best Raspberry Pi projects out there. Read more
