RebeccaBlackOS 2016-02-08 Review. Why? Because it’s Friday.
These are the types of problems found in an independent distro build from scratch. I cannot understand how a system built on Debian could be this buggy and apparently have zero VM support which Debian comes with by default. I can take some solace in the fact that it was built by one person and that one person is a Rebecca Black fan but as far as a Linux Distribution is concerned there is not much here. Some could say “Well its not supposed to be taken as a serious Distribution.” True except it is listed and kept up with on DistroWatch therefor it should be held as a system ready distribution especially when it was not released as a beta or an RC. If this distribution is ever going to be considered a real platform it has a long way to go. I give it about as many thumbs down as the Rebecca Black Friday video.
There are several attempts at turning a mobile phone into a viable computer. Ubuntu Convergence and Mircosoft's Continuum are the main ones in this field, but not the only. Maru OS is taking the idea in a different direction.
Its common knowledge now that your average mobile phone has as much power as a standard desktop PC from between 2000 and 2010. If leveraged right, they can replace PC' and laptops for most people, but only if it works as a laptop or desktop.
Before we get to Maru OS, we will look at the attempts at this ideal which have come first.
Mostly, our tutorials are about completing a specific project and reaching a particular goal. However, this time we’re doing something a bit different. We are showing you some Android apps that you can use along with your Ras Pi. These apps aren’t tied to particular projects – you can use them whenever and as often as you like – but we think they can add something to your whole experience with the Pi.
Some of the apps in our list are Pi-specific, while others are more general but have a Pi relevance. Chances are you might already know or use one or two, but we hope that you can discover something new from the selection on offer. If you have an Android phone or tablet and have not explored the range of apps available for your Raspberry Pi, you might be missing out on some cool and very useful options.
This is likely a topic covered plenty of times, and as such I won't make this a too in-depth article, but I feel it's something always worth reiterating and remembering that no matter what distribution of Linux (or GNU/Linux if you prefer) you use... it's all Linux.
You only have to whiz around the internet in message boards, YouTube comments and the like in regards to any Linux topic and you'll probably come across a "distro war" often enough. It can happen easy enough - someone mentions their distro of choice, someone else then mentions theirs and then comparisons start. From there, with personal experiences being shared, which quite frankly can differ quite a bit depending on one's hardware, software choices (or sometimes even luck) a discussion can quite quickly descend into a flame war over 'my distro is better than your distro'.
