TuxMachines: Hands-on with AVLinux: Crammed with multimedia goodies

Fri, 04/04/2014 - 1:54pm

The really interesting and important thing about the AVLinux distribution, of course, is the Multimedia capability included in it. The Audio menu is shown to the right, above. Well, at least part of it is; it has so much in this category that it doesn't even fit on one screen! Audio players, mixers, editors, synthesizers, analyzers, and pretty much anything and everything you can think of in this category are included.

This is where AVLinux really shines, and where Linux in general really shines in my opinion. Almost all of these are FOSS projects, and the few which are not at least include DEMO versions of their licensed products (Mixbus, Pianoteq and Renoise).

Reddit: RDP

Fri, 04/04/2014 - 11:49am

I need some help. I have a lot of old PC's at our plant vintage P4 2.4ghz 1-2GB Ram. I need to use them as lightweight linux boxes with RDP to hit our RDP server. I just need a suggestion for a distro. Thinstation isn't what I want. Then need nothing more than to boot to desktop then start RDP client. That's it. Can someone point me to a good lightweight distro or perhaps a useful howto for building my own spin? Thanks.

EDIT: Please include a link to a useful howto :)

LXer: Microsoft-Sponsored Study Says Problems Caused By Using Windows Software Will Cost Businesses $500 Billion In 2014

Fri, 04/04/2014 - 11:18am
Assuming the research results are representative of what's happening -- and there's no reason to suppose they aren't -- the obvious conclusion to draw from them for PC users is not just to stop using pirated software (a good idea), but to stop using Windows-based programs too, and to switch to open source applications running on an open source operating system like GNU/Linux. After all, free software is even cheaper than pirated software, and yet rarely has any of the problems identified in the new report.

Fri, 04/04/2014 - 8:57am

The Raspberry Pi has been out for just over two years now, and has been one of the biggest tech success stories in recent times.
