Review: Shuttle KPC K4500 Compact PC

Filed under
Hardware

computerworld.com: Shuttle's $199 KPC K4500 is a testament to ever-improving computer production techniques and design. With its skin on, it looks like a standard breadbox-size system--a type of PC whose interior tends to be a rat's nest of cables, riser cards, and support members. But the K45 manages to combine a small exterior with a roomy interior.

The Tragedy of Linux: You Can Hack an OS, But You Can't Hack People

Filed under
Linux

penguinpetes.com: I've been promising a follow-up to Ubuntu is not Linux. Because the broad point that I'm trying to make needs to be hammered down, I will explain it again and again and again, more and more clearly each time. Why is this idea so apparently hard for others to grasp and so nose-on-my-face evident to me?

Linux

linuxdevices.com: In the article, entitled "Embedded Linux: With friends like these, who needs enemies?"

Filed under
OSS

ostatic.com: I read a story earlier this week about a company named Aras switching from a traditional proprietary model to one involving "open source." But then the article indicated that Aras was releasing its software under a "shared source" license that was written by Microsoft.

Review: Linux Mint 18 (Sarah)

If you were looking to jump the Ubuntu ship completely, then we recommend taking a look at our recent Review of Fedora 24. It’s equally as good as Mint 18 and equally worthy of your consideration. Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
