Barrier to entry: Busting more myths about Linux

Filed under
Linux

False. False. And yet again, false. New users today are accustomed to technology. They use smartphones, navigate an endless amount of complicated websites, and so much more. And, surprisingly enough, the Linux UI is just as point and clicky as is Windows.

There are so many more "myths" that can be busted with Linux... but I think you get the point. For those that haven't tried Linux (yet still, oddly enough, complain about it), I highly recommend you give it a whirl. Download an ISO, burn it onto a disk, and boot it up. You'll be pleasantly surprised at just how user-friendly the platform is.

BeagleBone Green drops the HDMI… and the price

Filed under
Linux

Seeed Studios is shipping its $39 “Green” version of the BeagleBone, which loses the micro-HDMI port but adds a micro-USB port and Grove sensor interfaces.

The Raspberry Pi has spawned a number of hardware near clones, including the Banana Pi and Orange Pi SBCs, and now it’s time for the Beagleboard.org’s Linux-oriented BeagleBone to enjoy the sincerest form of flattery. The BeagleBone Green was announced by Seeed Studios, the company behind the popular line of Grove sensor devices, back in May. This was just in time to mention it in our joint LinuxGizmos/Linux.com 2015 hacker survey, in which the BeagleBone Black once again came in second place. Seeed’s BeagleBone variant was expected to ship in mid June, but has only now become available.

Exceptions include the LG Watch Urbane and Leikr sportswatch. Now, a San Francisco startup called Olio Devices Inc. has opened pre-orders on a Linux-powered luxury watch called the “Olio Model One.”

GNU: The GNU C Library 2.28 and Guix on Android

  • Glibc 2.28 Upstream Will Build/Run Cleanly On GNU Hurd
    While Linux distributions are still migrating to Glibc 2.27, in the two months since the release changes have continued building up for what will eventually become the GNU C Library 2.28. The Glibc 2.28 work queued thus far isn't nearly as exciting as all the performance optimizations and more introduced with Glibc 2.27, but it's a start. Most notable at this point for Glibc 2.28 is that it will now build and run cleanly on GNU/Hurd without requiring any out-of-tree patches. There has been a ton of Hurd-related commits to Glibc over the past month.
  • Guix on Android!
    Last year I thought to myself: since my phone is just a computer running an operating system called Android (or Replicant!), and that Android is based on a Linux kernel, it's just another foreign distribution I could install GNU Guix on, right? It turned out it was absolutely the case. Today I was reminded on IRC of my attempt last year at installing GNU Guix on my phone. Hence this blog post. I'll try to give you all the knowledge and commands required to install it on your own Android device.
  • GNU Guix Wrangled To Run On Android
    The GNU Guix transactional package manager can be made to run on Android smartphones/tablets, but not without lots of hoops to jump through first.

Voyage/Open Autonomous Safety (OAS) Now on GitHub

  • Voyage open-sources autonomous driving safety practices
    Dubbed Open Autonomous Safety, the initiative aims to help autonomous driving startups implement better safety-testing practices. Companies looking to access the documents, safety procedures and test code can do so via a GitHub repository.
  • Open-Sourcing Our Approach to Autonomous Safety
    Without a driver to help identify and mitigate failures, autonomous vehicle systems need incredibly robust safety requirements and an equally comprehensive and well-defined process for analyzing risks and assessing capabilities. Voyage models its safety approach after the ISO 26262 standard for automotive safety, taking the best practices from the automotive industry and applying them to autonomous technology. The automotive industry continues to reach for new levels of safety in manufacturing vehicles, and we are inspired by that approach.
  • Startup Voyage Wants to Open Source Self-Driving Car Safety
    Under what the company calls its Open Autonomous Safety initiative, Voyage is publishing information on its safety procedures, materials, and test code in a series of releases. The goal is to create an open-source library of safety procedures that multiple companies can use as a standard, a Voyage blog post said.
  • This startup’s CEO wants to open-source self-driving car safety testing
    The initial release, which Voyage calls Open Autonomous Safety (OAS), will take the form of a GitHub repository containing documents and code. The functional safety requirements are Voyage's interpretation of the ISO 26262 standard for automotive safety, updated for autonomous vehicles. "This is our internal driving test for any particular software build," says Cameron. "It lets us evaluate our designs and look for the different ways they can fail in the real world."
