What do you think when you hear the word Linux? Do you think some “elite” basement dweller living in there mothers home? Do you think “I never used it before….why should I use it now”…well I a way you are using it right now…the web page is hosted on a Linux box…so in a sense you are using Linux.

I just want to share one of my personal favorites distros (versions) with you. Today I’m gonna briefly talk about a distro call PCLinuxOS Why is this one of my personal favs? Well for me it is one of the most user friendly versions, I think if you take a look at it ,mess around a bit with it you will find that you can easily of the basic normal everyday tasks that you do on a windows based PC. Will you be playing the newest games on it? Well no…but you will be able to do anything else on it surf,email,video conference, burn CDs or DVDs, stream video from sites like Hulu honestly..any other thing you could think of that you can do on a windows PC you can do on PCLinuxOS .

Mesa Gets Closer To Having OpenGL 4.0 Tessellation Support

A significant patch-set was published on Saturday night that implements the driver-independent bits of OpenGL 4's ARB_tessellation_shader extension inside Mesa. The tessellation support has been one of the big pieces missing from Mesa's OpenGL 4 implementation and fortunately it's getting close to mainline. Chris Forbes of Intel published fifty-six patches this weekend that implement the driver-independent portions of the extension inside Mesa. Of course, the driver portions still need to follow for it to be useful. Read more

Small Console Menu Utilities

One of the great strengths of Linux is the whole raft of weird and wonderful open source utilities. That strength does not simply derive from the functionality they offer, but from the synergy generated by using them together, sometimes in conjunction with applications. The Unix philosophy spawned a "software tools" movement which focused on developing concise, basic, clear, modular and extensible code that can be used for other projects. This philosophy remains an important element for many Linux projects. Good open source developers writing utilities seek to make sure the utility does its job as well as possible, and work well with other utilities. The goal is that users have a handful of tools, each of which seeks to excel at one thing. Some utilities work well on their own. This article looks at four tiny utilities that offer menu facilities. They get virtually zero coverage in the Linux press, so you may not have heard of them before, but they are well crafted and might just fit the bill. Read more

Samsung ship SM-Z130H budget Tizen Smartphones to India for R&D Purposes

According to a Zauba International shipping manifest, Samsung have shipped 150 of these units from South Korea to India for R&D and Evaluation purposes, which is a fair amount for an R&D unit to continue its work with. We have been tracking two budget Tizen based Smartphones lately, the SM-Z130H & SM-Z130E, with various parts being shipped to India every couple of months or so, but this is one of the largest shipments that we have seen so far.

Fresh software from the 3.14 menu

If all goes according to plan, I'll be able to merge the aforementioned automatic rotation support into systemd/udev. The kernel API is pretty bad, which makes the user-space code look bad... The first parts of ebooks support in gnome-documents have already been written, scheduled for 3.16 Read more
