  • Making Fedora GNOME your working system in less than an hour

    It is a very good question. Ultimately, Linux is Linux. The only difference is the time you spend on the setup and adjustment of the necessary components. And what you get as the result. Whether it's clean system without a graphical environment, or a distribution with thousands of unnecessary packets. It is worth noting that the most of this article is built on the idea that I do not want to have arch + i3wm right now. Maybe later.

  • Debian Live Dead, Linux Ransomware & More…

    Larry’s away today, hiding beneath his tinfoil hat and hoping to escape the ravishes of Friday the thirteenth, so I was volunteered to write this week’s review. Sorry. Larry will return next week — as long as his astrologer says it’s safe.

    G’bye Debian Live: By now you’ve probably heard the news that evidently the Debian Live project is no more. This according to the project’s leader, Daniel Baumann, who posted An Abrupt End to Debian Live on the Debian website on Monday. According to him, the project was “hijacked by the Debian-cd and the Debian-installer teams.”

  • “Extreme rugged” Mini-ITX SBC runs Linux on Bay Trail

    Adlink’s Mini-ITX-BST-I SBC runs Linux on Intel Bay Trail SoCs, and offers 8GB RAM, dual GbE, and rich multimedia, plus MIL spec shake-and-bake ruggedness.

    Adlink says its “AmITX-BT-I” single board computer targets applications that demand high-level processing and graphics performance, along with low power consumption. The “Extreme Rugged” board joins an assortment of competing Bay Trail-based Mini-ITX SBCs including Habey’s MITX-6771 and MITX-6770, Aaeon’s EMB-BTx series, Axiomtek’s MANO842, DFI’s BT160, and Portwell’s WADE-8078. Adlink’s board appears to be unique among the pack in its MIL spec-level shock and vibration resistance (see table farther below), and support for -40 to 85°C operating environments. Presumably, meeting these specs requires the use of carefully designed thermal management solutions.

10 Useful Free and Open Source JavaScript Frameworks

JavaScript is an extremely popular prototype-based scripting language that is one of the core technologies of the World Wide Web. It provides for enhanced user interfaces and dynamic websites. JavaScript can, for example, check information entered into a form to ensure it conforms to what is expected by a database. JavaScript should not be confused with Java. While both are used to write computer software that can run inside a web browser, they are unrelated programming languages; Java offers a lot more than a programming language. There is a wide range of open source JavaScript frameworks that are available to help speed up the development process of websites. The purpose of this article is to help newcomers to JavaScript narrow the field to a manageable number to explore. The frameworks offer a wide range of features, such as Document Object Model querying and manipulation, Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) request handling, and an interface widget library being a few examples.
