PCLinuxOS Preview Graphics

Got these going on my PCLOS system. Very clean and professional looking theme going here--nice work.

re: Graphics

The heartbeat thingy is pretty cool, but what's with the Brontosaurus in the circle? Looks like it has club feet, a snake head, and two tails.

I think the Brontosaurus is

I think the Brontosaurus is actually a charging bull. You are looking at it with the wrong eye, unless you are joking Smile

I think the Brontosaurus is

I think vonskippy need some new glasses to see the difference between a Brontosaurus and a Bull

lol

No BS, It's a Bull

A stylized image of a Texas longhorn bull. Older version of the image is named "dobie-bull.png". I think the bull image is named in honor (I'm just guessing), of the Texas writer and folklorist, James Frank Dobie.

Certainly an appropriate image since the primary guy for PCLinuxOS is Bill Reynolds (a.k.a. Texstar).

re: Bull

I don't see it. Maybe it's one of those 3D prints where you have to stare at it cross-eyed for a while?

re: bull

The snakehead is the tail and the two tails are the horns. It's kinda looks like it's poised to charge, ya know how they drop their heads to lead with their horns.

Oopsie

Ah! I had it flipped around. Much better. Although Dinosaurs are much cooler then bovines.

Skippy

It's Skippy the bull. moooooo

Edubuntu Vs UberStudent: Return To College With The Best Linux Distro

Importantly, there are a handful of programs that are on Edubuntu that UberStudent doesn’t have, such as KAlgebra, Kazium, KGeography, and Marble. Instead, UberStudent has a smaller collection of applications but it does include some useful items when it comes to writing papers that Edubuntu does not have. So ultimately, Edubuntu includes more programs that are information-heavy, while UberStudent includes more tools that can aid students in their studies but doesn’t directly give them any sort of information.

Zotac Nvidia Jetson TK1 review

The Jetson TK1, Nvidia’s first development board to be marketed at the general public, has taken a circuitous route to our shores. Unveiled at the company’s Graphics Technology Conference earlier this year, the board launched in the US at a headline-grabbing price of $192 but its international release was hampered by export regulations. Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more

New Human Interface Guidelines for GNOME and GTK+

I’ve recently been hard at work on a new and updated version of the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines, and am pleased to announce that this will be ready for the upcoming 3.14 release. Over recent years, application design has evolved a huge amount. The web and native applications have become increasingly similar, and new design patterns have become the norm. During that period, those of us in the GNOME Design Team have worked with developers to expand the range of GTK+’s capabilities, and the result is a much more modern toolkit. Read more
