An Everyday Linux User Review Of Peppermint OS 7 - Nice Ice Baby
I like to watch videos by the Linux Help Guy who has changed his Youtube channel to English Bob. He has always been an advocate for 2 distributions and they are Peppermint OS and Manjaro.
I have to say he is going to be over the moon when he tries this out for the first time.
It has been such an easy experience thus far and the theming is excellent. There isn't really all that much to review software wise but the way Peppermint integrates web applications with desktop applications is really nice.
I highly recommend this. One of the best distributions that I have reviewed recently.
Wileyfox Spark hands-on: What an £89 Android phone looks like
Regardless, Wileyfox CEO Nick Muir describes the phones' price as "competitive," and it's hard to argue with the balance of hardware and software when you consider the base model Spark costs less than many accessories for rival handsets. Going forward, the firm clearly has big plans — Muir told us the company has shipped 250,000 units of its existing Swift and Storm models, and is aiming at the 2 million mark in the next 12 months. That includes not just the Spark devices, but future, higher-end offerings. Spark is "not indicative of Wileyfox's pricing direction," Muir told us, adding that higher-end models would follow in the next few months.
For the moment, Wileyfox finds itself with an augmented, product portfolio, but one still laser-focused on affordability.

What is OpenStack? The answer from the community is "We are OpenStack!"
In preparing for an interview for the OpenStack Foundation's "Newton Design Series," I was reflecting on what I've learned over the past two and a half years participating in the OpenStack community, and contributing to the Trove project in particular. It really struck me how much OpenStack is about the community rather than any particular technology, and that our place in that community is based on what we contribute. Overall, it has been a great chance to get involved in a true open source community and contribute to making it even better. We often forget how significant this is, and fail to realize that both OpenStack and Trove are true community open source projects.
The ODPi, a Linux Foundation collaborative project building, has moved one step closer to building a better integrated big data ecosystem based on open source technology. This week, it announced that several major Hadoop distributors have adopted its runtime standard.
