Filed under
GNU
Linux

The Maui team is happy to announce the release of Maui 1 “Aurora”.

This is the continuation of the full-desktop version of Netrunner (read about it here).

The biggest underlying change has been rebasing Netrunner on Kubuntu to Maui on KDE neon (Xenial LTS).

That means Maui will now be receiving continous updates and support until the next LTS in 2018.

During that timeframe, we plan to release updated ISO versions every 3-4 months with the latest of Plasma software and other updates.

Off-The-Shelf Hacker: This Story was Composed on a $9 Linux Computer

Filed under
Linux

A couple of weeks ago, we reviewed the CHIP computer. This time, we’ll go through the process of writing a TNS Off-The-Shelf Hacker story, on a CHIP computer.

I’ll talk about what I like and point out rough spots. Keep in mind that this is a $9 Linux-based computer. There certainly are limitations to its capabilities although you shouldn’t mistake the CHIP for a toy. You are reading the proof, right now, since all of this copy, the process of uploading it into the TNS’s content manager, and graphics editing were done on the CHIP. It only took a little bit longer than usual. As the technology matures, I’m definitely thinking about building a battery-powered notebook, using a nano-Linux board.

The point is that complete sub credit-card sized computer boards are a massive, positive trend in the Linux and physical computing world. And, it just keeps getting better.
