Reddit: LPIC 1 Certification worth it?

Linuxinsight - Wednesday 3rd of September 2014 05:30:19 AM

Has anyone (meaning you or someone you know) benefited from getting the LPIC certifications?

It seems very unpopular yet also happens to be the only certifications on Linux itself that I've found, and is the same thing as CompTIA Linux +.

Reddit: TIL LiMux is using Trinity, a KDE3 fork, as their default DE.

Linuxinsight - Wednesday 3rd of September 2014 04:34:33 AM

Open source not just software at Red Hat

My internship at Red Hat has not only advanced my knowledge and skills of Linux but also about the concept of open source. When I first started experimenting with Linux, I downloaded a copy of a Debian ISO to share a partition on my Windows machine. While researching Linux, the phrase "open source" would often appear on blogs, articles, and on quick "how-to" YouTube tutorials. I would soon come to realize what that term really meant.

Android mini-PC jumps on Cortex-A17 trend

Tronsmart has launched an $80-and-up “Orion R28″ mini-PC that runs Android 4.4 on a quad-core, Cortex-A17 Rockchip RK3188 SoC clocked at 1.8GHz. Like Ugoos, Tronsmart has tapped Rockchip system-on-chips such as the quad-core, Cortex-A9 RK3188, which fuels its Android-ready Tronsmart T428 stick computer.

The SoC has already appeared in the Rikomagic MK902II and the Ugoos UT3 mini-PCs. Read more
