2014 in Tux Machines

Filed under
News

OUR FIRST couple of months at Tux Machines were pleasurable and we hope that readers found the links we've shared valuable. We even posted links while on vacation, i.e. away from home.

Migration of the site to Drupal 7 (and another server) has been planned for over a month now and it did not happen over Christmas because if things go wrong, not much help will be at hand. We have already tested a prototype of the site and it will need to be upgraded, integrated, etc. Whether we can retain the existing theme (compatibility changes between major releases of Drupal) remains to be seen, but the format of the site will definitely stay the same.

Happy new year to all our readers, whom we very much value. This site is a public service.

Maybe it can be ported to drupal 7? Smile

If the theme is not a drop-in

If the theme is not a drop-in addition for Drupal 7, then I will try to hack some CSS and make it similar enough.

The 9 best distros for KDE’s Plasma desktop

While it's possible to install 'KDE' software and Plasma desktop on most Linux based distributions, I have picked the distros which offer Plasma as their default desktop environment. These 'KDE-based' distros offer a better Plasma experience compared to those where you can 'also' install KDE. At some point in time I have used each of these distros as my primary OS except for Mageia and Open Mandriva, which I tried but never used due to uncertainty around their future. Read more

Snag the Android Auto compatible Pioneer AVH-4100NEX for just $570 from Amazon

While the unit carries an MSRP of $700, Amazon's deal marks it down from its previous list price of $849.99. While it's still a tad expensive, the discount makes it a bit easier to get some Android Auto into your car. In case you've somehow managed to avoid any mention of Android Auto up until now, it allows you to connect any Android device running on Android 5.0 Lollipop with the relatively new Android Auto app in order to use it to control everything from navigation to music and phone calls.

A Data-Driven Look at the Open Source E-Commerce Market

Compared to Q4 2013, last quarter’s US online sales rose 14.6 percent to a staggering $79.6 billion dollars. This accounted for 6.7 percent of the total US retail sales market. Major trends fueling this growth include the proliferation of mobile devices, faster online checkout flows and improved fulfillment practices. The availability of open source e-commerce platforms is helping some offline business with the move online. Much like WordPress provides free, customizable CMS solutions, popular open source e-commerce platforms like WooCommerce, Magento and PrestaShop offer a variety of pre-built templates and plugins that DIY retailers can customize to build and grow an online business from scratch.
