Top 20 Best Tizen Apps for January 2019

Filed under
Linux

January saw quite a few new Tizen games to hit the Top 20 most popular downloaded list. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any new Tizen smartphone apps in this Tizen Store list. WhatsApp Messenger, Facebook, and Facebook Messenger still enjoy the top 3 positions respectively. I don’t think anything will shake them off that pedestal now.

As I said earlier there are quite a few new games in the Top 20. Top of the games list we have Bounce Classic, as the name implies, is a classic bounce game that relies on physics. You need to avoid the spikes and thorns and jump through the hoops in order to earn points. It has the original 11 bounce levels as well as 5 new custom ones. Ghost Moto simulator is a role play game, where you need to balance your bike and dodge unexpected hurdles. Another new entry at number 11 is the classic Snakes and Ladders game. Initially you have one board to play on with a choice of 8 characters. The idea is to earn stars as you go.

Linux 5.2 + Mesa 19.2 Performance With Polaris/Vega/Vega20 vs. NVIDIA On Ubuntu 19.04

With last week having delivered fresh benchmarks of the mid-range NVIDIA/AMD graphics cards using the very latest drivers, particularly the in-development Linux 5.2 and Mesa 19.2 components with the Radeon graphics cards tested, here is a similar comparison when moving up the spectrum and focusing on the higher-end graphics cards. Here's a look at how the RX 590, RX Vega 56, RX Vega 64, and Radeon VII are performing with the newest open-source AMD driver code compared to the NVIDIA Turing line-up backed by their latest binary driver. While next month will be Radeon RX 5700 series Linux benchmarking using the newest code (DRM-Next / Linux 5.3), this article is offering a fresh look at how the Linux 5.2 kernel performance is shaping up on the higher-end graphics cards as complementary to last week's numbers. The four Radeon cards tested were using the Linux 5.2 Git kernel and Mesa 19.2-devel using the Oibaf PPA. The NVIDIA Pascal and Turing cards benchmarked were using their latest driver available, version 430.26. Read more

Introducing GNOME Usage’s Storage panel

GNOME Usage is a new GNOME application to visualize system resources such as memory consumption and disk space. It has been developed by Petr Stetka, a high school intern in our Red Hat office in Brno. Petr is an outstanding coder for such a young fellow and has done a great job with Usage! Usage is powered by libgtop, the same library used by GNOME System Monitor. One is not a replacement for the other, they complement our user experience by offering two different use cases: Usage is for the everyday user that wants to check which application is eating their resources, and System Monitor is for the expert that knows a bit of operating system internals and wants more technical information being displayed. Besides, Usage has a bit of Baobab too. It contains a Storage panel that allows for a quick analysis of disk space. Read more
