Linuxfx 10: A Smart, Easy Way to Transition From Windows

Linuxfx is a great OS to run on older computers. It does not need very advanced hardware. A dual-core rig with a minimum of 2 GB of RAM is enough to run the system without lags or sluggishness. However, you will experience far superior performance if your hardware exceeds the minimum requirement. The sweet spot is at least 4 GB RAM and 16 GB of free disk space. Installation is a no-brainer as well. It is a fairly straightforward process that takes around 5 minutes. Read more

The AMD Ryzen 5 4500U / Ryzen 7 4700U Against Intel With 141 Benchmarks

Following the initial benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U performance a few days ago, here is another more exhaustive look at the performance of this six-core Zen 2 mobile processor as well as that of the eight core Ryzen 7 4700U and several competing Intel CPUs in 140+ benchmarks. Here is a fresh round of benchmarking with the Core i7 1065G7, Core i7 8565U, and Core i7 9750H up against the Ryzen 5 4500U and Ryzen 7 4700U. The comparable Intel parts were based upon what I had available for testing... Given laptop vendors generally being less than interested in Linux benchmarks/reviews, generally I have to buy the laptops for Linux testing, thus the limited selection compared to our desktop and server benchmarking. The Ryzen 5 4500U and Ryzen 7 4700U are the only Ryzen 4000 mobile parts I have at the moment that were acquired through retail channels. The Ryzen 5 4500U is within the Lenovo Flex 5 and the Ryzen 7 4700U in the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 (14). Read more

Developers can now use Alkemist to “immunize” their embedded Linux stacks by adding a layer into Yocto build environments “without changing a line of code or slowing down product releases,” says RunSafe.
