GUI on LAMP Server

Polls are showing KDE and Gnome are pretty popular on LAMP Servers.

My question is why? Not the esoteric KDE is better then Gnome (or vice versa) but why would you want/need a GUI on a Server?

re: GUI on LAMP Server

Yeah, I wondered about that too. I even wondered if folks were answering it in terms of a "server." Unexpected results to be sure.

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

re: GUI on LAMP

I replied Webmin. Rarely use GUI on the server for LAMP admin (just for initial setup and testing of the server). For ongoing maintenance and configuration, I typically use webmin or cpanel.

World’s smallest i.MX6 module has onboard WiFi, eMMC

Variscite unveiled a 50 x 20mm “DART-MX6″ module that runs Linux or Android on the Freescale i.MX6, with up to 64GB eMMC flash and -40 to 85°C support. Variscite’s claim that the 50 x 20mm DART-MX6 is the world’s smallest computer-on-module based on Freescale’s i.MX6 system-on-chip appears to be a valid one. It beats the smallest ones we’ve seen to date: TechNexion’s 40 x 36mm PICO-IMX6, and Solid-Run’s 47 x 30mm microSOM i4. It’s also just a hair larger than Variscite’s own 52 x 17mm DART-4460, which is based on a dual-core TI OMAP4460 SoC, and Gumstix’s slightly larger 58 x 17mm Overo modules, which use TI Sitara AM37xx SoCs.

BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition review

The BQ Aquaris e4.5 Ubuntu Edition is not the debut Canonical must have envisaged for Ubuntu Phone, in the early days of the platform’s development. It’s a perfectly functional smartphone for the most part, and we like the concept of scopes, but the hardware is humdrum, performance is sluggish, and the software running on it is rough and ready, and full of holes. We’ll be tracking the progress of Ubuntu Phone with interest – it surely must get better than this – but this first device is one to write off to experience. Read more
