(Obviously I'm looking for ones compatible with Linux.) I'm getting bored of just shooting people and blowing up cars in Saints Row IV. I want to be able to blow up buildings, but I don't want to have to use Windows. I want the aspect that Battlefield has, where you can blow up any building. I don't want Minecraft, Terraria or anything like that. Any and all help is appreciated.submitted by /u/Sir_Nope_
Reddit: I recently purchased a Raspberry Pi zero. Is there a certain "GNU/Linux for dummies" you would suggest to understand the rabbit hole I'm getting myself into?
Howdy yall. Short and sweet, I don't know the first thing about 'the other OS' besides it being 'open source'. I'm looking forward to doing some odd projects down the road (I know this will be a learning curve for a WHILE before I get to make anything on my own)
Any pointers as to where I should start to understanding the OS on my Pi Zero?
Thanks in advance yallsubmitted by /u/mikesbullseye
Today, Kyocera announces an interesting smartphone that stands out among the others. The 'DuraForce PRO' is super-rugged, and has both an octacore processor and large 3,240mAh battery. The stand-out feature, however, is the integrated wide-angle HD action camera.

For an industrious worker, an adventurous thrill-seeker or a parent on the go, DuraForce PRO incorporates cutting-edge technology and features designed to function in life’s most demanding moments. It is equipped with a large 5-inch Full HD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon octa-core processor (1.5GHz x 4/1.2GHz x 4) with X8 LTE and multi-mode to ensure fast connections on diverse global networks", says Kyocera.
I am currently running a study on OSS, and would love for you to be a part of it. The study concerns the motivations and reasons to participate in OSS projects, and will be the dissertation for my master thesis.
I really want you guys to be a part of the study, and all you need to do is take part in a 10 min survey linked below. In the good spirit of OSS, I will share my final dissertation when it is ready with anybody that would like to see it. I will also be giving an Amazon Gift Card of 30$ (If I get enough respondents, that value will go up!)
Thank you very much for the attention, Ricardo/u/RicardoCarvalho
The main reason for the introduction of the React Native framework in Ubuntu Linux is to continue its convergence vision
So I originally thought Linux was superior to Windows in the way to handles drivers. The way modern Windows OSs work is that they detect which hardware you have running and then download the drivers off Microsoft's servers. The problem with this method is that it requires an internet connection. Linux on the other hand already has all the drivers baked into the kernel so it literally "just works" right out of the box on any machine you run it on. However, I learned today that the Linux kernel has configuration options to include or exclude drivers from the kernel.
I installed Linux on a new laptop and I realized I need to have the CONFIG_AXP288_FUEL_GAUGE option in my kernel config set to enabled in order for my battery meter to work. So I have to always compile my kernel myself in order to get it running. Not only is this worse than the way Windows currently works (which fetches drivers from the internet automatically) but this is even worse than how Windows 98 era drivers worked. At least with Windows 98, installing drivers was a simple process. You simply insert the driver and point Windows to it. With my current situation, I have to compile the kernel from source which is not only a daunting process for people who are not programmers but it is also time-consuming.
Am I missing something here? Or is whether or not the kernel will work on your hardware really at the mercy of the config options set by your OS devs?submitted by /u/some_random_guy_5345

Yesterday I published early open-source benchmarks of the Radeon RX 470 while today is a full 18-way graphics card comparison including the newly-launched Radeon RX 460 and Radeon RX 470 graphics cards alongside the RX 480 Polaris graphics card. All of the AMD graphics cards tested for this article were running the very latest open-source driver stack on the Linux 4.8 kernel and Mesa 12.1-dev Git.
