ABIT Factory Tour

Filed under
Hardware

Introduction

ABIT factory, called Rolly, is located in SuZhou city (the correct pronunciation is "su-jou"), around 62.5 miles (100 Km) east from Shanghai. SuZhou is a small town for Chinese standards, with 1 million inhabitants and its main attraction is their gardens, over 2,000 spread all over the city.

Due to the political problemas between Taiwan and China, ABIT factory cannot be named ABIT. Because of that, its official name is Rolly. Built in 1999, this factory is in charge of manufacturing all ABIT products. Before this factory was built ABIT products were manufactured in an old ABIT factory in Taiwan, which no longer exists. They also manufacture products for other companies, like Canon and Yamaha - but never motherboards for other companies.

ABIT has a research and development center (R&D) in Rolly, where some of ABIT products are developed.

Linux Kernel 3.16.3 Becomes the Newest and Best Stable Version Available

Linux kernel 3.16.x is a relatively new release, but it was already adopted by a number of Linux distributions and it's available in the repositories for many others. The third release in the series is a little bigger than the previous one, but not much. In any case, it's going to be an interesting update nonetheless. Even if the first update for this branch has been rather smaller, the development seems to have picked up a little and more changes and improvements have been made in the meantime. Read more

KDE: Simple by Default, Powerful When Needed

KDE (back when it was still the name of the desktop environment) and our applications historically stood for powerful features and great flexibility and customizeability. This is what our users love about our software, this is why they choose Plasma and KDE software instead of one of the other Free desktop offerings. And it is also something they would fight tooth and nail for if we wanted to take it away (as many a KDE maintainer who dared to remove a feature he thought was unnecessary can tell). Read more

BitTorrent Bleep alpha released for Android

As an alpha it still has some issues “As with any Alpha, there are some known issues and bugs to work out. Android users will need to set the app to “Wi-Fi Only” unless you have an unlimited data plan; this is only for the time being while we iron out and issue related to battery and data-plan. And while you can move a username from desktop to mobile, Bleep does not yet support moving an existing account from Android to the desktop. And while you can receive messages on multiple devices; messages sent will not be seen across all devices. As with our previous release, communications happen only when all parties are online – you cannot send offline photos or group chats asynchronously.” Read more
