    If you’re looking for a slim notebook and acknowledge the superiority of Linux over Windows, you could be interested in the two new Alpha laptops that come pre-installed with a Linux-based OS.

  • Ditching Windows for Linux led to 'major difficulties' says open-source champion Munich [Ed: This is FUD. Munich is not replacing GNU/Linux. At least not yet. Microsoft needs Munich to fail or be perceived as failing by all means possible. This is why.]
  • Administering Chromebooks : For teams traveling to complex and hostile environments

    If you are traveling to hostile or complex environments the phrase “use a Chromebook” has become the “use Signal, use Tor” of border crossing device security. Nearly all of the individuals who work in these environments knows that, as with everything, it’s more complex than that.

  • Mir 1.0 Is Pulled Back, Now It's Mir 0.28

    While we've long been told that Mir 1.0 would happen for Ubuntu 17.10 -- even as recently as last month -- and then earlier this week was a Mir 1.0 tag and the v1.0.0 milestone in Launchpad, that version is being pulled back in favor of calling it Mir 0.28.

    Even following the decision to drop the grand Unity 8 + Mir plans, Mir 1.0 was still a target for the "Artful Aardvark" and their revised plan around the remaining Mir developers has been adding Wayland client support. That initial Wayland client support in Mir is in place albeit still fairly basic but should get better over time. We haven't seen Mir Vulkan support or other previously talked about changes for Mir 1.0, including the dropping of their old APIs, etc.

  • Arch Vs. Linux Mint

    If there’s ever been a mismatch in comparing any two distros, it definitely does not get any better as a mismatch than this. While Linux Mint seeks to provide an all-around distro that is ready for work and play right out of the box with a carefully curated software selection and experience, Arch allows advanced users to custom design their own distro with only the packages and software they’d want. So how do these two distros compare, their similarities and differences?​

IIoT platform extends from the cloud to the depths of a mine

Advantech announced an IoT platform initially targeting mine safety that combines BTI’s “MIOTY” LPWAN sensor solution running on an Ubuntu-powered Advantech ARK-2250L gateway connected to a Hitachi IoT Service Hub running on Microsoft Azure. Because Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) projects tend to be complex, multi-product endeavors, Advantech has lately been entering into IoT collaborations, such as its Embedded Linux & Android Alliance (ELAA) consortium and recently announced Solution Ready Packages (SRPs) cocreation program. Today at the Microsoft Inspire conference in Las Vegas, the company announced a new collaboration with Behr Technologies, Inc. (BTI), Hitachi Solutions America, and Microsoft on an end-to-end IIoT platform that will initially target the mining industry. Read more

Pinguy OS Puts On a Happier GNOME 3 Face

Pinguy OS 18.04 is an Ubuntu-based distribution that offers a non-standard GNOME desktop environment intended to be friendlier for new Linux users. This distro is a solid Linux OS with a focus on simple and straightforward usability for the non-geek desktop user.

The GNOME desktop is the only user interface option, but Pinguy OS' developer, Antoni Norman, tweaked the desktop environment with some different software options not usually packaged with GNOME.
