Writing SD cards for the Raspberry Pi is something that every member of the Pi community has attempted. Some are old hats and tackle the task with aplomb, but for some it strikes fear into their hearts.
In this article, I look at two different ways to write an SD card. First using the latest application to offer a simple GUI, Etcher. Then, I take a look at dcfldd, a Linux terminal command that expands on the popular dd command and offers much more functionality.
Coming only three days after the release of Linux kernel 4.10.2, the third maintenance update to the Linux 4.10 kernel series was announced by Greg Kroah-Hartman a few moments ago.
In today's rapidly evolving markets, companies that consistently innovate, most quickly and at the least cost, will win. And, as you’ve seen in our ongoing series, using Open Source Software (OSS) enables rapid, low-cost innovation. But it can also introduce operational challenges and legal risks.
We’re at a point now that OSS has become such a mainstream phenomenon that not using open source almost certainly places your organization at a disadvantage. So you must learn how to navigate the challenges and risks in order to remain competitive.
Open source programmers are celebrated for the software they create. But they don't often get the credit they deserve for one trait: Being funny. With that in mind, here's a list of some of the more entertaining statements made by members of the free and open source software community.
GNOME Project's Florian Müllner announced the availability of the Release Candidate (RC) versions of the forthcoming GNOME Shell 3.24 and Mutter 3.24 components of the GNOME 3.24 desktop environment.
In twenty-four years, Debian has gone from one of half a dozen leading distributions to the premier representative of Linux. Its derivatives Linux Mint and Ubuntu are the most popular distributions today, and new security and server distributions are likely to be based on Debian itself.
While users of proprietary operating systems suffer with new, slower, buggier, more spy-filled systems, Linux users are enjoying better performance and more support.
Toradex unveiled a Linux-driven Colibri module with NXP’s i.MX6 ULL SoC that offers industrial temperature support and dual-band WiFi-ac and BT 4.2/BLE.

It’s also the first embedded board we’ve seen that features NXP’s new cost-optimized version of the i.MX6 UL (UltraLite) called the i.MX6 ULL. The module will ship in the third quarter.

I'm currently using a floating one, and while I do sometimes wish I could 'snap' the windows into a corner or side of the screen, I feel like tiling WM's take up precious screen space whether you like it or not, and the lack of being able to resize the window really kills it for me. So, my question is, why use a tiling WM over a floating one, other than for minimalism and less dependencies?submitted by /u/ThatReallyFlyKid
