Latest Orange Pi offers quad -A53 cores and 2GB of RAM

Filed under
Linux

Shenzhen Xunlong’s Linux-ready “Orange Pi Win Plus” SBC offers a quad -A53 Allwinner A64, 2GB DDR3, GbE and wireless, and a 40-Pin RPi connector.

The $30 Orange Pi Win Plus adds to a flood of Orange Pi boards in recent months. Like the $20 Orange Pi PC 2 and recent, $20 Orange Pi Plus 2 H5, the Orange Pi Win Plus runs on a quad-core, Cortex-A53 SoC, but instead of offering the Allwinner H5, it uses the older Allwinner A64, which has a slightly less capable Mali-400 MP2 GPU instead of a Mali-450 MP2.

Solus GNOME Edition Launching Soon with the GNOME 3.24 Desktop Environment - Exclusive

Filed under
GNU
Linux

Solus Project leader Ikey Doherty just informed us today that the next Solus ISO snapshot, due for release in the coming weeks, will be accompanied by a GNOME edition too.

We believe that this is a dream become a reality for many Solus users out there, not that they weren't able to install the GNOME Shell interface before, but because having an officially supported edition that features the GNOME 3 desktop environment by default makes Solus adoption a lot easier.

SODIMM-style COM sharpens IoT focus with i.MX6 ULL SoC

Filed under
Linux

iWave has replaced an earlier i.MX6 UL module with an almost identical “iW-RainboW-G18M-SM” COM equipped with the more power efficient i.MX6 ULL.

iWave has re-released its two-year old iW-RainboW-G18M computer-on-module as a new iW-RainboW-G18M-SM COM that cashes in the old i.MX6 UltraLite (UL) SoC for NXP’s even more energy efficient i.MX6 ULL. The original COM still has its own pull-down menu entry, but when you click on it you are redirected to the new iW-RainboW-G18M-SM. The similarly Linux-driven, SODIMM-style module seems to be identical except for the new SoC. There is, however, a new Pico-ITX development platform, which we cover below.

Fatdog64: More Bark Than Bite

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

Fatdog64 has the potential to outpace similar Linux distros, but its developers first must fix the numerous flaws that are holding it back.

Loading much of a distro's core elements into RAM is a proven method for delivering lightning-fast performance. However, Fatdog64 gets in its own way by failing to provide an option for storing essential files on the hard drive, which would reduce the need to read them from the CD/DVD or USB drives. Its performance is therefore noticeably sluggish compared to Puppy Linux and other "portable" distros.

GoboLinux developer Lucas Correia Villa Real announced the release of the first maintenance update to the GoboLinux 016 series, which was a major update of the independently developed Linux-based operating system.

  • Desk Changer is a Wallpaper Slideshow Extension for GNOME
    Have you been looking for a GNOME wallpaper slideshow extension? If so, you can stop. In the comments to our recent post on the way GNOME handles wallpapers a number of readers asked whether GNOME had an image slideshow feature built in, without the need for third-party apps and the like. The answer is yes, GNOME does. Sort of.
  • Minwaita: A Compact Version of Theme Adwaita for Gnome Desktop
    As you may already know that Ubuntu is switching back to Gnome, this is the transition time for Ubuntu to switch back. Some creators are motivated and creating themes for Gnome desktop, which is a good thing and hopefully we shall see plenty of Gnome themes and icons around soon. As its name shows "Minwaita" it is minimal/compact version of Adwaita theme, the theme is available after some enhancements to make Gnome more sleek and more vanilla Gnome experience without moving to away from Adwaita's design. This theme is compatible with Gnome 3.20 and up versions. This theme was released back in November, 2016 and still in continuous development that means if you find any problem or bug in the theme then report it to get it fixed in the next update. Obsidian-1 icons used in the following screenshots.
  • Gnome Pomodoro Timer Can Help You Increase Productivity
    If you are struggling with focus on something, it could be your work or study then try Pomodoro technique, this method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. You can read more about Pomodoro here.
  • Widget hierarchies in GTK+ 4.0
    In GTK+3, only GtkContainer subclasses can have child widgets. This makes a lot of sense for “public” container children like we know them, e.g. GtkBox — i.e. the developer can add, remove and reorder child widgets arbitrarily and the container just does layout.
