We old coots are forever going on about our favorite keyboard shortcuts, because that is still the fastest way to get stuff done on a computer. Life is too short to faff around the hard way, so let's try some nice Bash time-saving shortcuts.
Feral Fury is a twin-stick shooter with an overall dark feel to it. I've played it for a while and I've grown to really enjoy it, even if it's a little punishing.
Surfing the web is fun and easy, but think what it would be like if you had to type in the IP address of every website you wanted to view. For example, locating a website would look like this when you type it in: https://126.96.36.199, which would be nearly impossible for most of us to remember. Of course, using bookmarks would help, but suppose your friend tells you about a cool new website and tells you to go to 188.8.131.52. How would you remember that? Telling someone to go to "Opensource.com" is far easier to remember. And, yes, that is our IP address. read more

With Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Canonical will replace Ubuntu’s touch-enabled Unity8 “convergence” desktop with GNOME, thereby abandoning its mobile ambitions. Ubuntu’s Unity desktop and its related Ubuntu Phone project were always long-shots, so it was not unexpected that Canonical would eventually call a retreat. That is exactly what Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth did in an April […]
Running Ubuntu Linux on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud is a fairly common practice. Though Ubuntu has been available in the AWS marketplace for years, until recently there wasn't a version of Ubuntu with a Linux kernel that was specifically tuned for the AWS environment.
Since Feral Interactive have fixed up the OpenGL renderer in the Mad Max Beta, here are some fresh OpenGL vs Vulkan tests.
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 […]
I'm a bit of a weather nut. It might be because I'm getting older, but for some reason, the weather fascinates me. I'm not quite to the point that I watch The Weather Channel on a regular basis, but I do check the forecast often.

At ELC 2017, Intel’s Daniele Alessandrelli related how his team built a QM-Bootloader for Intel’s MCU-like Quark D2000 and SE with secure firmware upgrades. Years after Intel released the low-power, Linux-compatible Quark X1000 processor, which runs on the Intel Galileo and numerous IoT gateways, the chipmaker last year launched three microcontroller-like Quarks that do not […]
I’m writing to let you know that we will end our investment in Unity8, the phone and convergence shell. We will shift our default Ubuntu desktop back to GNOME for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
So if there's one thing we've probably repeated more than others around here, it's the idea that in the IoT and copyright maximalist era, you no longer truly own the things you think you own. It doesn't matter whether we're talking about video game consoles, software, smart home hubs, ebooks, DVDs or routers -- in the always-connected, copyright mad, instantly-upgradeable firmware age, companies are often quick to remove some or all functionality at a whim, leaving you with little more than a receipt and a dream of dumb technology days gone by.
The Pisound is a sound card HAT-add-on for the Raspberry Pi with 192kHz 24-bit stereo I/O, classic MIDI In and Out ports, onboard knobs, and a user button. A Lithuania-based Pisound project has tripled its funding goal on Indiegogo, with 23 days left.
NEWS ANALYSIS: After six years of pitching the dream of a converged Linux desktop experience that crosses desktop, mobile, server and cloud, Canonical pulls the plug.
Shuttleworth has shocked and surprised the open source community, even those who were critics of the Unity effort that was started six years ago. "I'm writing to let you know that we will end our investment in Unity8, the phone and convergence shell," he wrote on the official Ubuntu blog Wednesday. "We will shift our default Ubuntu desktop back to GNOME for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS."
