Filed under
Hardware

The Popcorn Hour C-200, the latest 'Networked Media Tank' device from Syabas (the makers of the popular A-100 and A-110) is finally ready. Online orders directly from Popcorn Hour can be placed starting from tomorrow (27th August 2009 12:00AM PST) and shipping is supposed to start on September 3rd.

The C-200 main enhancements compared to the A-110 are the full support for Blu-ray discs, as it incorporates a slot where a standard 5.25" PC Blu-ray drive can be inserted which makes the C-200 a fully featured BD+ Blu-ray player, the new much faster processor which will allow for better-looking and faster to navigate GUIs, and the back-lit LCD display on the front of the unit, which means the player can be used for music playback without switching on the TV.

LibreOffice 6.0 Coming Soon to openSUSE Tumbleweed, Along with KDE Apps 17.12

A total of six snapshots have been released to the public this month, as OpenSuSE Project's Dominique Leuenberger announced this past weekend, and they brought lots of goodies, along with some of the latest GNU/Linux technologies and Open Source software components. But first, there's been a bunch of more python2->python3 conversions lately that you should know about. "For the ones that don’t know yet, the python2 -> python3 switches are especially of interest to SLE/Leap 15," said Dominique Leuenberger.

As Tumbleweed is the leading and trendsetting product, it is but natural that we get those changes as well." Read more
