1+1 = Calculate Linux

Filed under
Linux

Another Monday, another review. This week it’s Calculate Linux 11.3 Gnome Edition! Get ready for another wild and crazy ride into the ever changing landscape known as FLOSS!

Arriving at home page for the Calculate Linux website you get the feel that it’s a straight forward business-like site. There’s nothing flashy about the website, but it’s also extremely informative. There’s release announcements, new package updates, ‘Planet Calculate’ blog/news feed, security advisories and a twitter feed down the one side. The other side has a brief introduction about Calculate Linux, Why another distribution was built when there are so many, different ways of obtaining help, and lastly, a section showing the recent forum posts. The menus are thoroughly populated with every option you could possibly need. One that sticks out was being able to connect directly to IRC from the ‘Community” drop-down menu. There’s no need for a client, it just opens a window where you are a guest in the channel. I was ‘guest-en’ quite a number of times.

Radeon RX 580: AMDGPU-PRO vs. DRM-Next + Mesa 17.2-dev

Last week I posted initial Radeon RX 580 Linux benchmarks and even AMDGPU overclocking results. That initial testing of this "Polaris Evolved" hardware was done with the fully-open Radeon driver stack that most Linux enthusiasts/gamers use these days. The AMDGPU-PRO driver wasn't tested for those initial articles as it seems to have a diminishing user-base and largely focused for workstation users. But for those wondering how AMDGPU-PRO runs with the Radeon RX 580, here are some comparison results to DRM-Next code for Linux 4.12 and Mesa 17.2-dev. Read more

Top 4 CDN services for hosting open source libraries

A CDN, or content delivery network, is a network of strategically placed servers located around the world used for the purpose of delivering files faster to users.
