Samsung N150 Plus Netbook - Fedora, Mandriva, Ubuntu Maverick and Jolicloud

Filed under
Linux

Rather than continue this sequence of posts with one per Linux distribution, which would end up being a lot of repetition, I've decided to wrap them all up in one bundle. There's good news and not so good news, and a peek at the latest from Ubuntu. But first, one small observation. A couple of days ago I realized what I like so much about this Samsung netbook. It makes practically no noise at all. If there is a fan in it, it is the quietest I have ever had. When I realized that, I thought the laptop must get pretty hot, so I started paying attention to that. It doesn't. If anything, it seems to be less warm, especially underneath, than any of my other netbooks or laptops. It's quite amazing.

Fedora 13 (Goddard): Loaded without any trouble, as usual, but I have gotten the Broadcom wireless adapter working yet. There are instructions on the Fedora Unity web page which should work, but I haven't gotten around to that yet. Otherwise Fedora looks very good on the N150.

These 3 things are trying to kill Linux containers

For nearly two years, Linux containers have dominated the world of enterprise IT, and for good reason — among others, they take on issues that virtualization simply cannot within application development and computing at scale and allow for the enterprise world to truly embrace concepts like devops and microservices (the Service Oriented Architecture dream from years gone by). That sound you hear is IT vendors stampeding towards the container bandwagon, but, as with every emerging tech trend, this isn’t always a good thing, as not everyone is walking the walk, regardless of what the business might actually say.

    While not yet as versatile as say Google Maps, GNOME Maps for GNOME 3.20. is looking to be a nice upgrade. Maps in GNOME 3.20 is making progress with OpenStreetMap editing, expanded place bubbles, adding new places to OSM, support for printing routes, and more.
  • My Updated 3.18 Packages for GNOME Extensions
    I started releasing extension updates in 2014 due to a lot of extensions being unmaintained and seemingly break every time GNOME releases a new version of the Desktop Environment (DE). This is my third batch release post for GNOME extensions and these extension packages are for GNOME 3.18.
