Fusion Linux 14 Thorium - Fedora Plus Plus

Filed under
Linux

Fedora remixes are far and few in between. The reason is probably two-fold. One, it is RedHat-based, which is commercial, so people might not wish to dabble in its code and create spinoffs. Indeed, Fedora is sponsored by RedHat. It acts as an early testbed of technologies, which are later introduced into the enterprise release. Two, there's yum package manager, which seems to frighten home users, for some reason.

Therefore, it is quite refreshing to find one and test one. Well, I found two, but since reviews normally focus on a single product, we'll have Fusion Linux this week, Fuduntu next week. Let's see what Fusion Linux can do; battle-tested version 14 called Thorium. And before we dig into the technical details, let me bore with a bit of prosaic mulling.

BeagleBone based 3D printer focuses on ease of use

The “Voladd 3D Printer” features a Linux-driven BeagleBone SBC that connects to a cloud-based sharing site, plus a unique cartridge and cooling system. San Sebastián, Spain based Voladd has won Kickstarter funding for a Voladd 3D printer that runs Debian Linux on a BeagleBone Black single board computer. Like several other Linux-based printers we’ve seen (see farther below) the Voladd connects to a cloud service, and does not require an attached computer. The printer stands out with its mobile app remote control, as well as a streamlined cloud interface that lets you download one of thousands of free designs in 25 categories and share designs and printer access with others. Kickstarter pricing starts with early bird packages of 499 Euros ($591), with shipments due in December. Read more
