Linux Mint 17.2: If only all penguinista desktops were done this way

Thankfully this is not the case with Mint 17.2 because the underlying packages from Ubuntu have not changed. You can update to Mint 17.2 directly from Update Manager. That will continue to be true for the rest of the 17.x release cycle (which will last through Ubuntu 16.04, due in April 2016). And indeed you should upgrade. Given that it's easy and painless to update, combined with all the improvements in this release, Linux Mint 17.2 is well worth it. This is exactly the kind of user-focused release that solves small, everyday problems while leaving the rest of the system alone. Read more

The DT7816 is billed as a “real-time ARM-based, high throughput, high accuracy, simultaneous data acquisition module.” Its feature set is similar to the mainboard in Data Translation’s recent DT7837 device, including the open source Debian Linux distro, an FPGA, and a Texas Instruments Sitara AM3352 system-on-chip with a single Cortex-A8 core. However, the DT7837 is designed specifically as a dynamic signal analyzer for measuring noise and vibration while the DT7816 is a general purpose data acquisition board. Read more

Running BSD on the desktop with MidnightBSD 0.6

MidnightBSD FreeBSD is a fine operating system to run on servers and some people feel the characteristics which make FreeBSD suitable for servers (conservative updates, stability, performance) also make the operating system a good choice for desktop computers. Or, at least, FreeBSD could be a good desktop operating system with a few tweaks. That is the premise behind MidnightBSD, a desktop-oriented project that forked from FreeBSD. "MidnightBSD was forked from FreeBSD 6.1 beta. The system was forked to allow us to customize and integrate the environment including the ports and system configuration. We wish for the system to appeal to beginners as well as more experienced BSD users. Many operating systems are under active development; with MidnightBSD, we wish to focus on optimization and usability improvements for desktop users." Read more
