5 easy steps to become an Ubuntu power user

Filed under
Ubuntu

More and more people are migrating to Ubuntu Linux on an unprecedented scale. However, most if not all, of these new users are people who have no prior knowledge of Linux whatsoever. The road to being a power Ubuntu Linux user can be summed up in five simple steps that every new user in whatever category will find easy and fun to implement.Using Ubuntu is more than just running an OS, it is about joining an ideological movement of freedom that in my view is symbolized by the Statue of Liberty in the US. Read on to become the next Mark Shuttleworth.

Step 1- Join the Ubuntu Forums.
The first thing you should do as a new user of Ubuntu is to join the Ubuntu Forums. It is a very helpful place where you can get to introduce yourself, make friends with newbies like you and more experienced geeks, ask any question you have about Ubuntu or Open Source in general, join any ongoing conversation and more. I also advice that you take time everyday to visit. Be an active participant. If you like, you can even subscribe to the feeds of the Forums. But whatever the case, please make it a note to join the Ubuntu Forums and you will be amazed at how much you get to learn for free..

Ubuntu Power User Sighting

I was enjoying an evening walk along the river bank when the Loch Ness Monster suddenly peeked her head above the water to look at the UFO hovering over the lake. The UFO landed in a nearby clearing and low and behold the Big Foot monster exited the space craft with a laptop computer! I followed Big Foot to a campsite where some Ubuntu Power users were able to help Big Foot fix his computer. Big Foot waved goodbye, climbed aboard the UFO and disappeared into the night sky. So now I believe in the Lock Ness Monster, UFOS, Big Foot and Ubuntu Power users. Big Grin Big Grin

New Android-x86 Release Peppered With Problems

If you want one Linux-based OS to run on all of your devices, Android-x86 could become a viable alternative. The major advantage to running Android on all of your devices would be keeping all of your settings, apps and Google services on an equal footing. That is not happening yet, however. Chih-Wei Huang, project maintainer for the Android-x86 Project, last month announced the release of Android-x86-r3 -- the third stable release of the Android-x86 project. It certainly is more refined, but it is a work that needs more progress. Read more

Fanless network appliance runs Linux on Marvell Armada 370

Axiomtek’s fanless “NA150″ network appliance runs Linux on a Marvell Armada 370 SoC and offers five GbE ports, a 2.5-inch drive bay, and mini-PCIe wireless. The NA150 is latest addition to Axiomtek’s family of compact desktop and rack-mountable network appliances, but it appears to be the first to stray from the well-trodden x86 path. Unlike the company’s similar circa-2011 NA330 and NA320R systems, which were powered by Intel Atoms, the NA150 is built around Marvell’s ARMv7-based Armada 370 system-on-chip. Read more

Real pics of Samsung's clamshell Android with 16 MP camera emerge, flippin' awesome

Samsung's flip Android comes with two 3.9-inch Super AMOLED panels with 768 by 1280 pixels of resolution, both of them protected by layers of Corning's Gorilla Glass 4, which is the same ultra-resistant glass that you're going to find on high-end Samsung handsets such as the Galaxy Note5 or the Galaxy S6. The handset draws its processing power from the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, a SoC that's paired with 2 GB of RAM. Read more
