Linux

As I promised, here's the third Mint review this spring. I really like Mint 13 Maya so far, and it's being introduced into my sacred production setup as we speak. In fact, this review is a revolution of a kind, since it marks a first change in my operational system array since CentOS was added there, which too marked another milestone, the previous such drastic step being never.

Currently, Google’s in-car play is limited to Android Auto, which does maps, music, texts, calls, and voice searches. But when Google shows off the latest version of its mobile OS – Android “M” – part of that announcement is reportedly a car-specific build designed that could control everything from the stereo to the climate control and more.
