CAINE 6 is the latest edition of CAINE, a Linux distribution designed for digital forensics. It is based on Ubuntu and this latest edition is based on Ubuntu 14.04. CAINE is an acronym for Computer-Aided INvestigative Environment.
CAINE 6 uses an installation application called systemback and is the first CAINE installer that I could not use. No matter where I tried to install CAINE 6, systemback failed to start.
The main differences between the B+ and the Raspberry Pi model B are the new model has:
four USB ports (versus two in the model B )
a microSD card (versus a full size SD card in model B )
a video jack integrated with the audio jack (versus two separate jacks in the model B )
GPIO pins extended to 40 pins (versus 26 pins in the model B )
lower power consumption
four mounting holes
What has not changed:
The price, it is $35 USD
The amount of RAM, it has 512 Mb
One the greatest strengths of Mint 17 lies in its revised Update Manager which provides a lot more information than Ubuntu’s package management choices (Synaptic, Aptitude, dpkg, and Apt-Get) do about each update type (regular updates, security updates, backports, and romeo updates) which makes it much easier to maintain systems.
So, if you’re looking for an elegant, high-performance, easy-to-use, highly functional, stable, and maintainable desktop Linux that is a real alternative to Windows and perhaps the most user-friendly distribution available, Linux Mint 17 is probably what you want.
Edition with its abundance of games, choices of emulators and the fact it comes with Steam, PlayOnLinux and Dosbox pre-installed.
The system was stable in the most part but you can't always guarantee what an emulator is going to do and on the odd occasion my screen resolution changed.
With so many games available the LXDE menu system felt a bit overloaded. Ways around this problem include adding your favourites to the panel at the top or installing either Slingscold for a nicer dash style display or Cairo as a dock.
All in all, SparkyLinux Gameover Edition provided me with the most fun that I have had in ages and it has been a welcome guest during my internet free week.
ROSA Desktop Fresh R4 is the latest edition of the bleeding-edge edition of ROSA Desktop, a Linux desktop distribution from ROSA Laboratory, a Linux software solutions provider based in Moscow, Russia.
For new users, it is one of the better designed KDE desktop distributions, with a few features you won’t find on mainstream KDE desktops. However, my experience with this latest release has put a damper on that “better designed” label.
Using the Raspberry Pi for around the past two years has generally been pretty fantastic. It took us a year or so to stop being surprised by just how much it was able to do in the various projects we saw or made ourselves. One thing that we always struggled with was web browsing though; Midori was slow and laggy and it would take up all the Raspberry Pi’s system resources as well.
It seems the Raspberry Pi Foundation has noticed this too and has been busy creating a new browser for Raspbian that’s lighter and faster while still being a useable piece of software. Epiphany, the GNOME Web browser, is the result and is now replacing Midori in the latest versions of Raspbian.
The Document Foundation has been able to attract contributions to LibreOffice from AMD and Intel as well as governments, including Saudi Arabia and France. Donations are the primary source of revenue for The Document Foundation and Vignoli said that the donations have been growing steadily over the years. That funding has enabled The Document Foundation to hire three full-time people and two part-time people, as well as supporting continuing developer efforts around LibreOffice.
One of the main areas of growth for LibreOffice is in competitive migrations away from other office suites, including Microsoft's Office. While The Document Foundation would like to see more people use LibreOffice, the plan is not for all users to totally abandon Microsoft Office.
"The objective is not to eradicate Microsoft Office from companies," Vignoli said. "The concept of migration is about giving an alternative to companies." - See more at: http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/libreoffice-at-4-how-the-openoffice-fork-is-forging-ahead.html#sthash.Jp29EQC7.dpuf
