Sure, there are a few titles that can run on Linux at the moment, but the list is fairly thin. However, things may not stay this way for long, as Linux is making tremendous efforts to step into the game, with the upcoming SteamOS being the pièce de résistance. With no official released date available yet, Linux’s swing at Microsoft’s domination over the gaming industry may have to wait a bit longer. That doesn’t make its efforts any less remarkable, though, as Linux came a long way when it comes to gaming.

But what we cannot do is launch a GUI application for viewing content present in the remote node. This is the disadvantage of using ssh in a terminal.

But this disadvantage can be easily solved by making use of "putty", a remote login application which can not only be used to login to a remote node, but also launch GUI applications. Examples of GUI applications are Browser, text viewers, etc.

Linux-ready smart camera SoC encodes 1080p@70fps video

Allwinner unveiled a Cortex-A7 based SoC for smart connected cameras that integrates its HawkView image signal processor, and supports Linux and “Camdroid.” Allwinner jumped on the ARM Cortex-A7 spec early, using it for its popular, low-priced system-on-chips like the Allwinner A10, dual-core A20, and quad-core A31. Like the A10, Allwinner’s new “V3? SoC has a single Cortex-A7 core, in this case clocked to 1.2GHz. However, Like a number of TI’s Linux-focused, DSP-based DaVinci SoCs, the V3 is designed for camera applications.

SMARC module runs Linux on i.MX6, runs hot and cold

Embedian has launched a SMARC COM that runs Linux on a Freescale i.MX6, and offers up to 2GB RAM, 4GB eMMC, -40 to 85°C operation, and a Mini-ITX baseboard. Embedian’s SMARC (Smart Mobility ARChitecture) form-factor SMARC-FiMX6 computer-on-module follows Embedian’s earlier SMARC-T335X, which integrates a TI AM335x Sitara system-on-chip. The SMARC-T335X module also formed the basis for a pair of Embedian sandwich-style Smart SBCs. The similarly SODIMM-style SMARC-FiMX6 instead showcases Freescale’s Cortex-A9-based i.MX6 SoC.
