One of the wonderful things about Linux distributions is the various desktop environments available. Unlike Windows and OS X, if you do not like the user interface, you can simply change it. I am a big fan of GNOME 3, but I know that many people dislike it. That's OK -- different strokes for different folks as they say.
Another desktop environment I like, and recommend to many, is KDE Plasma. The latest version, Plasma 5, is wonderful, and former Windows users will feel comfortable with it. Today, the best KDE distribution, Netrunner, reaches version 16. Dubbed "Ozymandias", it embraces KDE Plama 5.
A gaming distro, by definition, is host not only to a large variety of games, or software that allows one to play games, but it also has drivers and support for essential devices such as graphics cards and controllers.
Unlike most other genres of Linux distributions, gaming distros aren't a thriving bunch. But this isn't because Linux users dislike games, instead it's due to the fact that this niche category is almost redundant thanks to most modern desktop distros. Almost all desktop distros are equipped nowadays with drivers for most modern graphics cards, which means that just about any distro can be turned into a gaming station.
Despite this, some distros continue to churn out special gaming editions which provide hundreds of games right out of the gate, and the means to install even more with additional software such as Play on Linux, Wine and Steam.
So we’ve got news of the new Samsung Gear A (codenamed Orbis) Smartwatch, the new Samsung Gear SDK and a render of what the Smartwatch could look like based on prototype drawings. Now we have more renders of what the upcoming Samsung round Smartwatch could possibly look like, with its round bezel that takes advantage of the new round user Interface.
Arduino announced a smaller, cheaper “Mini” version of the Arduino Yún SBC that offers fewer real-world ports, but gives more control to Linux.
Arduino, the Italian-based project that designs the official line of Arduino hacker boards, announced a $60 Arduino “Yún Mini” SBC today at the Maker Faire Bay Area. This was the same event where Arduino two years ago announced its first Linux-ready board. the Arduino Yún. The Yún Mini sacrifices a number of interfaces in order to reduce size, and gives the OpenWRT Linux based Linino distribution, which is also used by the original Yún, more control over the board’s functions.
