Poking at Pinguy 10.10.1

Filed under
Linux

Earlier this week, the Ubuntu 11.04 beta was released. I was looking forward to trying out the Unity interface, as regular readers know; I’m apprehensive about it but I want to give it a fair chance. But the installer threw an error right at the end, and though it seemed to have finished, the resulting system was unbootable.

So there I was, with a newly borked disk (not a production system, thankfully) and some unrequited geekery to requite. I happened to also have on hand an installation disc for Pinguy 10.10.1, so I popped it in and installed that instead.

The installation went surprisingly fast, considering how much larger than Ubuntu Pinguy is, and completed without incident. On first boot with Pinguy I was immediately struck by the cosmetic details.

NVIDIA reveals GPUs for blade servers, Linux desktop support

VMworld 2015 NVIDIA has announced the second version of its Grid desktop virtualisation software, complete with a pair of GPUs for blade servers. NVIDIA is pitching GRID as a hardware offering tuned to the needs of graphically-demanding desktop virtualisation (VDI) workloads. If that sounds a bit exotic, consider environments like the resources industry, where on-site engineers need CAD and modelling tools, but miners are loathe to deploy desktops in the remote sites where stuff gets dug out of the ground. VDI works a treat in such spots. Read more
