Android is known for offering users a greater degree of customizability and control than any other mobile operating system, but there are still limitations to what you can do with an Android phone right out of the box. To push beyond those limits, you need to root your device, which means you gain admin rights to it. This somewhat complicated process could void your warranty or, if something goes wrong, break your handset. Are the benefits of having administrative control of your phone worth the risks? Android enthusiasts would give you an unequivocal "yes," but we've gathered a list of pros and cons to help you decide for yourself.

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce the fourth beta of OpenELEC 6.0 (v5.95.4)
The most visible change is Kodi 15.1 (Isengard). Beginning with Kodi 15.0 most audio encoder, audio decoder, PVR and visualisation addons are no longer pre-bundled into OpenELEC but can be downloaded from the Kodi addon repo if required. PVR backends such as VDR and TVHeadend will install needed dependencies automatically. For further information on Kodi 15.1 please read http://kodi.tv/kodi-15-1-isengard-maintenance-release/.
The Mageia Control Centre is a good tool for managing your software installations, your hardware and internet connections.
There haven't been any crashes since I started using Mageia. The only real issue I had was the lack of sound whilst watching MP4 videos which I can't give an answer to because it suddenly started working again. (Cue the people saying "you had the volume turned down, didn't you?".
So with everything that has been written can I now recommend Mageia to the readers of this blog? Absolutely.
Canonical's Nathan Haines has informed us all about the launch of a new event for members of the Ubuntu Linux community, where they can contribute with photographic and illustrative wallpapers, as well as other multimedia content in order to celebrate the release of Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) operating system.
Google's Street View allows you to see panoramic views of streets from your mobile device, allowing you to "take a walk" along a street so that you can check out a neighborhood. The latest version of Google Maps for Android, which happens to be version 9.13.0, includes a link to a Street View for your destination. All you need to do is click on the thumbnail at the lower left of the screen to get there. The thumbnail will appear when you search for an address inside the app, or with a long press to the map.
Google finally has a name for the next generation in Android OS, and it’s Marshmallow. While the update itself made its debut at Google’s I/O conference back in May, as reported by The Verge, it was then known as Android M. The new name follows Google’s pattern of naming individual releases after sweets alphabetically, something it has done for year
Dell entered the Android tablet market late last year by releasing the Venue 8 7000, a device with an understated though appealing form that contains good specs and an interesting camera technology.
An Android-powered slider may not be the only phone BlackBerry has pegged for Google's mobile OS. Following the leaks of a device codenamed "Venice" that's said to be offered in both Android and BB10 versions, a video of the recently announced Passport Silver Edition surfaced. The square QWERTY handset isn't running BlackBerry's software, though, it's sportin' Lollipop. In the video from Dudu Rocha Tec., a prototype version of the new Passport is equipped with what appears to be stock Android. It'll be interesting to see if this phone also packs in some of BB10's notable features like Venice is rumored to do. BlackBerry hasn't tipped its hand on Android devices just yet, so we'll have to wait and see if another model of the silver Passport will be the second model that'll tempt those who prefer Google's mobile software. BlackBerry is already working with Mountain View on a more secure enterprise version of Android, and a number of reports indicate that the company is planning it's own Lollipop (or Marshmellow) phones in the near future.
BlackBerry's anticipated 'Venice' Android slider smartphone has been in the news for weeks now. While the Canadian company is yet to make the handset official, there's no shortage of leaks about the it.
Despite there being nearly 400,000 possible combinations of codes, an analysis by Martle Løge of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology of 4,000 of them found that they largely bore huge similarities.
There is good news on this front, however, as upcoming Android devices won’t be infused with as much bloatware as you’ve grown accustomed to.
According to the latest statistics from The Cloud Market, Ubuntu now accounts for 59% of all images on the Amazon EC2 platform. Windows has 8%, and the other distributions of Linux split the remaining 33%.
Ubuntu’s popularity is due to the operating system's regular updates, easily accessible images, and availability of enterprise-grade support. And, of course, the lack of license fees.
Dustin Kirkland, from Canonical's Ubuntu Product and Strategy team, told me in a long interview at LinuxCon, "We are really steamrolling towards a GA release of Ubuntu on z Systems. Users of z Series systems are the types that buy hardware for 5 and 10 years and that lines up very well with our LTS of Ubuntu.” He also said they need to do some work on tool chain to ensure they have components like gclib libraries on all of the compilers, including other bits such as Perl, PHP, Ruby, Python, etc., which are needed to build the Ubuntu universe. Users will start seeing that work coming out later this year and alpha/beta builds of Ubuntu in early 2016.
I enjoy using Linux on the desktop. Not because of software politics or because I despise other operating systems. I simply like Linux because it just works.
It's been my experience that not everyone is cut out for the Linux lifestyle. In this article, I'll help you run through the pros and cons of making the switch to Linux so you can determine if switching is right for you.
el showed off a 147 x 140mm “5×5″ SBC form-factor slotted between NUC and Mini-ITX, designed for socketable, LGA-based Intel Celeron and Core processors.
Spurred on by the success of its reference design for 102 x 102mm (4.0 x 4.0-inch) NUC (Next Unit of Computing) mini-PCs, many of which run Linux, Intel showed off a “5×5″ mainboard form-factor at last week’s Intel Developer Forum. Billed as being the “smallest socketed board standard,” 5×5 measures 147 x 140mm (5.79 x 5.51 inches), or 29 percent less than the 170 x 170 (6.7 x 6.7-inch) Mini-ITX.
We are happy to announce our tenth update for Manjaro 0.8.13.
With this we updated most of our kernels, KDE frameworks to 5.13.0, mesa to 10.6.5, virtualbox to 5.0.2, fixed some issues with our steam client and renewed our KDE theme Maia. This new look will be included in our Manjaro 2015.09 release. Some work went into consolekit and the development branch of Calamares.
