PCLinuxOS 2010 Gnome Zen Mini Review

Filed under
PCLOS

Elegance and simplicity unite to bring you another compelling reason to switch to PCLinuxOS. Gnome Zen Mini features the gnome desktop stripped to the core, with only a minimal selection of default applications Zen Mini is lightweight and very powerful. Zen Mini comes with everything you need for common daily tasks, and any other software you require is easily accessible through the Synaptic package manager. Definitely an excellent choice for older computers, or just anyone who enjoys self customization. Zen Mini also has a beautifully simple menu structure and speed to match many top distributions. Be sure to download this stylish Linux distribution from the PCLinuxOS team.

University students create award-winning open source projects

In my short time working for Clarkson University, I've realized what a huge impact this small university is making on the open source world.

It, along with the Internet Teaching Lab and the Virtual Reality Lab, is run by students (supported by faculty advisers), allowing them to gain experience in managing both facilities and projects while still undergraduates.

Linux 4.17-rc2

So rc2 is out, and things look fairly normal. The diff looks a bit unusual, with the tools subdirectory dominating, with 30%+ of the whole diff. Mostly perf and test scripts. But if you ignore that, the rest looks fairly usual. Arch updates (s390 and x86 dominate) and drivers (networking, gpu, HID, mmc, misc) are the bulk of it, with misc other changes all over (filesystems, core kernel, networking, docs). We've still got some known fallout from the merge window, but it shouldn't affect most normal configurations, so go out and test. Linus Read more Also: Upstream Linux support for new NXP i.MX8
