Linux

Supercharge your Raspberry Pi. It's project awesome!

Take control of your telly, your devices that run embedded Linux and more, as we uncover the potential of the Raspberry Pi. With a bit of patience, a soldering iron and a couple of circuit boards, you can even use one to control an LED display to light up your favourite winter-based religious festival.

We look at Bitcoin, we make a mess with Inkscape, and we scratck our heads and wonder why the excellent Ubuntu has taken such a nosedive with its most recent release.

On the DVD we’ve got the latest-and-greatest version of Slackware, the completely free (as in speech and as in beer) Trisquel, the tiny Core Plus and the lightweight AntiX.
