Linux in Flight: The Penguin Grows Wings

Filed under
Misc

raiden.net: Being an avid fan of aircraft and flight (ref: extreme high performance flying), one of the things that has always caught my interest was the ever improving design of aircraft, engines and avionics. Linux has become quite the integral part of the aviation industry these days, so much so that in some respects, Tux has grown wings.

Asus Eee All-In-One Monitor

Filed under
Hardware

blog.laptopmag: If Eee mania hasn’t set in yet, it’s about to. Earlier this week pictures of the Eee PC 903, 904, and 905 were leaked. Joining these “unofficial” pictures of new Eee PCs are some shots of the Eee Monitor. Based on the photos, we’re wondering whether this is actually a monitor or a new all-in-one PC or a rip off of the iMac.

ripping on ubuntu is the new black

Filed under
Ubuntu

blogs.linux.org.bd: One of the annoying features of reading several planets, is that you end up reading entries from people you otherwise respect, who seem to have various complexes about nonsensical issues. We all saw the month in which half of Debian decided it was cool to rip on Ubuntu, and now apparently it's the new cool thing to do if you work on Fedora.

The critics are wrong: KDE 4 doesn't need a fork

Filed under
KDE

arstechnica.com: After the recent release KDE 4.1 beta 2 and openSUSE 11 with KDE 4.0.4, some critics have been especially vocal in expressing their displeasure with the KDE 4 user interface paradigms. The controversy has escalated to the point where some users are now advocating a fork. I'm convinced that the fork rhetoric is absurd.

openSUSE 11.1 Roadmap

SUSE

news.opensuse.org: With openSUSE 11.0 out the door, it’s time to start thinking about openSUSE 11.1. The public release of openSUSE 11.1 is scheduled for December 18, 2008, six months after the release of openSUSE 11.0.

How Linux app install leaves one PC expert befuddled

Filed under
Linux

blogs.zdnet.com: Adrian, you dumbass! At least that was my initial reaction when I read his “Linux’s dirty little secret” column about his struggles with installing applications onto a Linux distro. It was either the Linux Geek rage originating from the knowing that he didn’t Read the Fine Manual (RTFM) or the sheer jealousy of not getting 300+ Talkbacks whenever I post.

Don’t confuse bad Linux support for bad Linux

Filed under
Linux

itwire.com: Anti-Linux evangelists try to level many claims against the free open source operating system Linux. Arguments against the base cost (nothing!) or about the turnaround time to repair security exploits don’t work. But there is one item in the anti-Linux arsenal which often hits hard: lack of support.

9 Web browsers for Linux

Filed under
Software

linuxhaxor.net: Firefox is a great web browser, there is absolutely no argument about that. However those of us who are using linux long enough have went by quite well without it, and some still do. Here is an attempt to list some of the linux browsers actively developed and updated.

OpenSuse 11

Filed under
SUSE

lincgeek.org: So it looks like Pat and I had the same idea this weekend. That is to play around with the new OpenSuse 11. Before I started, though, I needed a system I could install on. Live cd’s are great and all, but it’s just not the same.

Aetina’s “ACE-N510” carrier for the Linux-powered Jetson TX1 and TX2 measures only 87 x 50mm, and offers HDMI, 2x USB 3.0, 2x CAN, and optional -20 to 70°C. When Aetina recently unveiled its Nano-ITX (120 x 120mm) ACE-N261 carrier for Nvidia’s Jetson TX2 and earlier, pin-compatible Jetson TX1 COMs, it mentioned an upcoming ACE-N510 that was even smaller. Now we have the details on the little beastie, which like Connect Tech’s Sprocket Jetson carrier, has a compact 87 x 50mm footprint that matches the Jetson modules it stacks on. The ACE-N510 is designed for smart cameras, robots, drones, industrial inspection, mobile medical, and deep learning. Read more
