TuxMachines: Ubuntu Core Linux comes to i.MX6-powered IoT-friendly TS-4900 Computer On Module

Friday 24th of February 2017 08:38:43 AM

Microsoft's operating systems, by comparison, are far more narrow. True, there is the lightweight Windows 10 IoT for ARM boards, but it is hardly a factor nowadays.

Today, Ubuntu Core comes to the i.MX6-based and ARM-powered TS-4900 Computer on Module. While Android and other Linux options were already available for the IoT-friendly CoM, Ubuntu Core is still a major win. Canonical's revolutionary snap packages should work beautifully here.

Friday 24th of February 2017 08:30:52 AM

TuxMachines: Review: Google Pixel is Android at its best (if a little boring)

Friday 24th of February 2017 08:19:32 AM

The Pixel’s designs have been divisive ever since the first batch of leaks hit the interwebs, but I’ve grown quite fond of it. Maybe it’s the fact that my ‘Really Blue’ (provided to us by Verizon, thanks folks) model is in fact so incredibly blue, but really I just think the two tone look stands out. It’s instantly recognizable if you’ve seen the phone before.

Reddit: Podcasting with Linux?

Friday 24th of February 2017 03:37:59 AM

What's a good combo for software, plug-ins, configuration, and etc for podcasting with Linux? Is there anyone out there that uses Linux for podcast production? What do you use? I'm looking for something to accommodate a USB microphone and a cohost/guest coming in via Skype (or alternative). Ideally I'd like to have each speaker recorded on a separate track for ease of editing. What are some recommendations?
