TuxMachines: Soylent 1.3 Review

Monday 12th of January 2015 11:50:12 PM

For some, food and the act of eating are merely about sustenance. That mindset is antithetical to the way I approach gastronomy. That said, when Soylent hit the crowd funding scene, I was intrigued. And I wasn’t the only one. They had over $2M in pre-orders using Tilt and have since raised roughly 1.5M from venture capitalists.

TuxMachines: Linux-based hexacopter avoids obstacles using Intel RealSense

Monday 12th of January 2015 11:33:07 PM

Ascending Technologies demoed an enhanced “AscTec Firefly” hexacopter, running Ubuntu on Intel-based computers and featuring six Intel RealSense 3D cameras.

One of the coolest demos at CES 2015 was the AscTec Firefly drone demo at Intel’s big IoT extravaganza. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich joined several members of the Ascending Technologies team to play a drone version of Pong in which they paddled the hexacopter away by simply by moving toward it. The trick is enabled by the hexacopter’s six Intel Realsense 3D depth cameras combined with advanced inertial sensor and fusion algorithms running on an onboard Ubuntu Linux driven computer.

TuxMachines: Ongoing developments – the kernel column

Monday 12th of January 2015 09:40:28 PM

Linus Torvalds announced Linux 3.18-rc5, noting that “Hmm. We had a very calm -rc4, and I wish I could say that things continued to calm down, but… Yeah, rc5 is clearly bigger than rc4 was. Oh well.” He proceeded to note that rc4 had been smaller than usual and that the content “[looks] fairly normal”. All in all, the level of churn is about what one would expect in the latter part of a kernel development cycle. We’ll have a full summary of 3.18 in our next issue.

TuxMachines: Why Linux Isn't Winning Over Mac Users

Monday 12th of January 2015 09:30:28 PM

Despite my affinity for the Linux desktop, I'm still part of the Mac world, thanks to my wife and her preference for OS X.

As such, this means helping out with TimeMachine backups, software updates and handling anything that might happen to come up when she needs a hand. Much like one might find with the Linux desktop, left alone, the Mac does a pretty good job of just "working" and allowing its users to get their daily duties completed without much hassle.

In the past, I've heard rumors about folks coming from OS X to Linux and sometimes, even switching from Linux over to OS X. After all, users of both platforms tend to rely on the web browser as their primary software application.

However, I want to dive into the idea that a multitude of Mac users are switching to Linux. In this article, I'll explain why multitudes of Mac users aren't switching to Linux, and I’ll provide some specific exceptions on the occasions when they are.

  • 5 reasons Valve's Steam Machine dream is still very alive
    Steam Machines? More like has-been machines, am I right? Actually, no: while many people are giving Valve's PC-console-hybrids the cold shoulder, this gamer reckons they'll be worth the wait. I realise that I'm part of a shrinking group still backing Valve's SteamOS-powered Linux boxes, and it's not difficult to see why the hype around them has all but evaporated. Several controller-related delays, U-turns by seemingly committed hardware partners and a lack of news from the top has made many think that Valve is blowing hot air.
