Many experts and users say that having a system daemon might slow down your system a little, or it could divert us from the original purpose of using Linux, which is making things simple and making the entire system efficient.

How To Design A Pi Case For Laser Cutting – In Depth Tutorial

The last couple of times I’ve done a project involving a laser-cut Pi case, people have asked me to put together an in-depth tutorial on how to design them. So I’ve prepared this tutorial using an open-sourced software package called Inkscape to do just that. Inkscape is a free vector-based graphics editor that is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, so you can even run it on your Raspberry Pi. If you don’t have it installed already, visit their downloads page to download it for your device.
