In there NVIDIA talked about their great experience working on this open-source driver and engagement with the Nouveau community, which will continue for future Tegra SoCs.

User-friendly virtual hosting with TurnKey Linux

Filed under
GNU
Linux

Suppose you’re a developer and want to experiment with Drupal 7.7 or WordPress. Maybe you're a K-12 teacher or university professor and want to teach your students Moodle administration or how to create some network-attached storage. You could download a tarball from Drupal.com or WordPress.org and configure on your own desktop or laptop, but then you would also need to configure Apache and MySQL too. All of these operations take effort and know-how that you may or may not have time for.

Asus ZenWatch review: a sophisticated-looking Android smartwatch

Filed under
Android
Reviews

The Asus ZenWatch is a surprise. It is comfortable, looks great and works well. The heart rate monitor is well suited to infrequent checks, and the screen is bright and can be clearly read in sunlight.

Having to charge it at least every two days is a drag, but almost every other smartwatch short of the Pebble suffers from the same drawback.

The always-on ambient display mode using the OLED screen makes it a very good watch for actually telling the time, which others have neglected.

Overall, the ZenWatch is easily one of the best Android Wear watches available and a solid contender for the incoming Apple Watch.

Filed under
Linux

That makes a new post on Linux.com reporting on the embedded sector particularly welcome. Here's the key finding.

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge flagship phones are finally here. They are beautiful phones (unlike the uninspired Galaxy S5). The S6 Edge, with its unique curved screen, is especially eye-catching.

But the S6 and S6 Edge have more than just good looks. Both pack powerful processors, gorgeous 5.1-inch displays, and the best smartphone cameras on the market.

Two years after the unveiling of its predecessor, the Dell M3800 Developers Edition aluminum-backed laptop for programmers is now here, and while it has improved in a number of interesting ways that include a new 4K ultra HD screen, it’s still a laptop that doesn’t come with the light, airy body of other brand models. Then again, this isn’t a gaming laptop, it’s built with programming in mind.
