Obits

I’m sad to report that Thomas Gilliard (satellit), who was a valued member of the QA team for many years, passed away last week. His wife contacted me with the news.

Wikiman: An Offline Search Engine For Arch Linux, Gentoo Wiki, And More

Official documentation of applications or commands is always the best way to learn about them if you want to know every detail, which a blog or article can’t provide.

So, whether you want to know about a command or jargon in Linux, you can refer to any of the Wiki sites available. But if you’re looking for something that can provide documentation not only of Arch Linux but also of Gentoo, FreeBSD, and others to read in an offline mode, meet Wikiman. Read more

Chinese Laptop Featuring New 14nm Loongsoon 3A4000 CPU Appears

Due to this laptop being in the Chinese market, Windows is not supported at all. It only runs Chinese "domestic operating systems" that are typically modified versions of Linux. Fortunately, this does mean you can install any Linux flavor you want on the laptop, which can be handy if you don't want to run China-specific apps only. Read more
