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.
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.
NO operating system is perfect and Linux is no exception.
In contrast to Windows and Mac OS X, however, Linux gives you a lot of choices—some might say, too many choices. DistroWatch.com lists more than 200 active distributions (or flavors) of Linux—and what’s more, each of these distributions allows you to customize the desktop environment.
The Top 10 Linux server operating system distros ranked by ease of use, cost, available support and data center reliability.
We've researched, crunched the numbers and put dozens of Linux distros through their paces to compile our latest list of the top ten Linux server distributions (aka "Linux server distros") — some of which you may not be aware.
RapidDisk and RapidCache are a collection of Linux RAM drive and block level RAM caching modules. It is designed to achieve high performance without the need of acquiring new hardware.

- Identified & corrected a couple of memory leaks.
