    Logic Supply has informed Softpedia about the upcoming availability of a new member of the ever-growing family of the company's industrial PCs, the CL100, which is set to be unveiled during the Digital Signage Expo 2016.

    Delivered in a new, small form factor, the CL100 industrial computer is fanless and ventless, just like most of the industrial PCs manufactured by Logic Supply, thus preventing ingress from various airborne debris like dust. It contains no moving parts, and it is mostly targeted at digital signage applications, offering users the possibility of installing either the popular Ubuntu Linux or Microsoft Windows operating systems.

  • For A Few Dollars More Than The Raspberry Pi 3 You Can Have A Much Faster Board

    Yesterday's Raspberry Pi 3 Benchmarks vs. Eight Other ARM Linux Boards was quite interesting while today I have a complementary data point: the Raspberry Pi 3 compared to the ODROID-C2. The ODROID-C2 costs just a few dollars more ($40 USD) while having a faster SoC and other advantages.

  • The Raspberry Pi 3 Does Get Rather Warm Under Load

    In continuation of yesterday's Raspberry Pi 3 Benchmarks vs. Eight Other ARM Linux Boards, here are a few more details about the Raspberry Pi 3's thermal performance.

    As pointed out in that Raspberry Pi 3 benchmarking article yesterday and has been pointed out elsewhere, this quad-core Cortex-A53 ARM development board does get rather warm under load. However, there is no heatsink at all by default with the RPi3.

MX Linux MX-21 Xfce

MX Linux MX-21 Xfce is the complete opposite of my MX-21 KDE review - that one was delightful. The Xfce one is the worst experience I had with this distro, probably ever. I didn't really get to properly test anything due to the general sluggishness, the login freeze, the suspend & wake problems, the Firefox slowness, the kernel oops, and all the rest of it. But the visual customization did show me one important aspect - how much more advanced KDE is, and how fragile scaling is in Xfce. I really am not in the mood to manually tweak 20-30 separate Xfce elements just to have a nice, presentable desktop. That's 2005, and it needs to stop. The Xfce version of MX-21 ain't bad, but it's fragile. Worse yet, the distro behaved far better in the past, so we also have a regression on our hands. All I can say, go for the KDE version, it's amazing (among the best systems I ever tried). Whereas the Xfce one needs to go back to the workshop and get some serious rework. Alas, on that note, and with some mild paranoia swirling in my brain, we end this sad review. Read more
