  • With B1 Archiver, No Need to RTFM

    Archiving tools typically are intimidating and confusing. Even those with GUIs often require an investment of time to figure out how to use them. B1 is very intuitive. Almost every action can be executed through keyboard shortcuts. The menu row at the top of the app window has only three drop-down categories: File, Commands and Help. The dialog boxes that open from the menu are well designed and easy to use.

  • Stream and Share Your Media with PlexWeb

    I freely admit that I wish Plex was open source. Thankfully, however, its proprietary code does't mean Linux users are excluded.

  • 5 Of The Best Programming Editors Under Linux [2014]

    When NodeJS made its debut in open source market, around 4 years ago, everyone knew what was going to follow. Programmers loved it at first sight, used it and evolved it. The idea of having a JS client, that talks to a JS server and stores data in a JS database ( document databases ), was quite attractive and people adapt it at once, in every case, right or wrong.

  • Make Peace with pax

    pax is one of the lesser known utilities in a typical Linux installation. That's too bad, because pax has a very good feature set, and its command-line options are easy to understand and remember. pax is an archiver, like tar(1), but it's also a better version of cp(1) in some ways, not least because you can use pax with SSH to copy sets of files over a network. Once you learn pax, you may wonder how you lived without it all these years.

  • Essential LaTeX Tools

    LaTeX is a document preparation system and document markup language for high-quality typesetting. The system was originally developed by Leslie Lamport in the early 1980s. LaTeX is based on Donald E. Knuth's TeX typesetting language. Lamport says that LaTeX “represents a balance between functionality and ease of use”.

  • The Future of OpenShift and Docker Containers

    A few months ago, Docker (then dotCloud) and Red Hat announced a partnership to collaborate around Docker, the excellent container management solution for Linux. At the time, the OpenShift team was heads down working on our 2.0 release, but we were already thinking about how we could use Docker to take application development and deployment on OpenShift to the next level.

Linux-ready dev board beats BeagleBoard-X15 to the AM5728

Elesar’s “Titanium” is a feature-rich board based on TI’s AM5728 SoC, featuring dual Cortex-A15, dual DSP, and dual Cortex-M4 cores, plus a dual-core GPU. It’s not too often that a workalike board ships before the original, but that appears to be the case for UK-based Elesar’s Titanium development board. The Titanium is not really a clone, but it’s available now with similar features and the same new Texas Instruments Sitara AM5728 SoC that was supposed to debut in the still delayed BeagleBoard-X15 hacker SBC.
