Damn perfectionists!!!

.92 test 03 is good. Very good.

Put it this way, with any less a gang of perfectionists than Texstar and the PCLOS crew, this would be version "5.1 ultra-stable"! At least! But no, it's version 0.92-test3.

Actually there may be sound reasons why, when 0.92 proper arrives, that it would be advisable to re-install if you installed from a test, but this release is good enough to try out and play with over the next week or so, with a view to going for 0.92 proper when it arrives.

It is no longer seen as a communal obligation, rather as a conditional activity in which the volunteer also receives benefits. Moreover, distributed revision-control systems and the network effects of GitHub, which standardize the process of making a contribution, make it easier for people to contribute casually to free/libre/open source software (FLOSS) projects.

5 ways to invigorate education with Raspberry Pi

A couple of years ago, I was talking to PayPal senior director of software development Harper Reed at All Things Open in Raleigh, N.C., when he suggested that the best way to invigorate education would be to purchase Raspberry Pis en masse and put them in public libraries. Although many schools have made sizeable investments in classroom technology, those investments have done little to advance students' understanding of how the technology works. That's where the Raspberry Pi comes in, as it's the ideal vehicle to demonstrate the educational efficacy of open source software and open hardware in the classroom. Read more
