  • Linux-based personal micro PC Panther Alpha launches on Kickstarter

    We cover a lot of macOS and Windows 10 news here on the site but we don’t always cover Linux as much as we should. Part of that is because we don’t have anyone on staff who uses the OS on a daily basis. There was a time though that I used Linux extensively when I was dead broke. I built my PC’s out of spare parts and installed Linux on them to get things working.

    Back then it was a chore to get just about anything to work properly, finding the proper drivers, or even finding the right programs to open certain files took time to put together. Linux has evolved a lot over the years and many distros offer out of the box functionality that I never knew. Panther is launching a Kickstarter for a personal micro PC that is Linux-based and very affordable. Check out the full press release below and hit the Kickstarter link below to support the project if you find it may fit your needs.

  • Panther Alpha Super Mini PC Hits Kickstarter For $79 (video)

    The Panther Alpha is being marketed as the most efficient desktop computer currently available allowing you to do more with less. Watch the promotional video below to learn more about its construction, integrated technology and operating system.

  • Lenovo issues fixes for laptop Linux installs [Ed: thanks to Techrights]

Top 5 Active Arch derived Linux distributions

Filed under
GNU
Linux

As we know Arch Linux is one of the best Linux Distribution ever because we can customize whatever we want. We can get all the latest software’s because of the rolling release but its very difficult to install & configure for Linux beginners as well as experience too.

Arch Linux is very unique, compare with other Linux distributions because it doesn’t comes with live ISO & Desktop Environment. Arch gives you the full freedom to customize the installation as you wish, When you boot up, you’ll be end-up with a terminal and most of the people panic here because they don’t want to build from scratch.

There are many, Actively developed Arch derived Linux distributions are available with pre-installed Desktop environment. Today we are going to review/show you, Top 5 Active Arch derived Linux distributions. Whoever want to taste arch Linux give a try, i can assure worth to try.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divide for GNU/Linux: Updates

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Released for Linux & SteamOS, AMD GPUs Aren't Supported

    The moment you've all been waiting for is here, the UK-based video game publisher Feral Interactive has just made the big announcement today, November 3, 2016, for the launch of the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided video game on Steam for Linux, and SteamOS.

    Exactly two weeks ago, the guys behind Feral Interactive teased the Linux gaming community with yet another AAA title, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, after giving us a unique chance of playing the excellent Mad Max open world action-adventure video game just a day before announcing the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Linux port.

  • Deus Ex Linux Requirements Announced, Only NVIDIA GPUs Supported

    Feral Interactive has published the system requirements for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. As usual, it's the GPU/driver requirements that are always most interesting.

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided released for Linux, port report and review

    I thought the recent port of Mad Max to Linux was our highlight of the year, but Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a whole ‘nother level of fun.

    I have to say, I’m damn impressed at not only how many games Feral Interactive have ported this year, but also at the fact that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided came to Linux so soon after the original Windows release! Not quite the day-1 releases we need, but damn close.

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Linux system requirements revealed, Nvidia only for now

    With the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided release happening tomorrow, Feral Interactive have released the system requirements. It will need a pretty decent rig.

    It is a heavy game, I've seen plenty of reports about the Windows version requiring a beefy PC to play it reasonably well, so this isn't surprising.

Elementary, My Dear Siri!

Filed under
GNU
Linux
Mac

I’m not one prone to knee-jerk reactions, but I’m also not one to sit about idly without considering alternatives. So the first thing I did after the Apple keynote was to download a copy of Elementary and burn it to an SD card.

An hour or so later, after checking that my Chromebook would work OK with it1, I installed from the live image to the SSD and began the process of figuring out whether, three years after I first tried it, Elementary is finally good enough for me as a development environment.

Like last time, this isn’t a review per se, but rather a smattering of my impressions while trying to assess whether it suits me.

I’m being realistic here – I know it’s not macOS, I don’t expect it to be macOS, it will not be a magical replacement for macOS for most people who share my current disenchantment with Apple, but I am very familiar with Linux, and most definitely need to consider moving to it in the long term given the way Apple has been neglecting Mac hardware and software over the past few years.

So given this week’s keynote completely ignored desktops and that I sorely need to upgrade my six-year-old Mac mini, this is as good a time as any to evaluate what’s out there.

IPFire 2.19 Linux Firewall Distribution Switches to Unbound as DNS Proxy

Security

On the first day of November 2016, Michael Tremer from the IPFire project, an open source, professional, secure and hardened Linux-based firewall distribution, proudly announced the release of IPFire 2.19 Core Update 106.

IPFire 2.19 Core Update 106 is the latest stable release of the Linux firewall OS, and it looks like it implements a new DNS proxy, namely Unbound, which replaces the Dnsmasq DNS forwarder and DHCP server used in previous releases. The decision was made because of the recent DNSSEC implementation by default in the distribution, which proves to offer better DNSSEC reliability, enhanced features, such as import of static leases, and improved performance.

Doyodo RetroEngine Sigma is a Linux-powered classic video game emulation console

The Nintendo NES Classic is quite an amazing console. True, it is not as powerful as modern game systems like Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but it comes pre-loaded with many classic NES titles. Unfortunately, its strength is also its weakness -- those pre-loaded titles are the only games you can play. You cannot load other games, so you are stuck with what you got. Read more
