Filed under
Linux

MYIR’s new sandwich-style dev board mixes a Linux-ready, Zynq-based COM with 4GB eMMC with a carrier board that has USB, GbE, HDMI, PMOD, and FMC I/O.

Like MYIR’s Z-Turn Board SBC, the MYC-C7Z010/20 computer-on-module, which plugs into a MYD-C7Z010/20 baseboard to form a sandwich-style SBC, runs Linux on a Xilinx Zynq system-on-chip. You can choose between two COM SKUs, including one with the Zynq-7010 found on the Z-Turn, and another with a Zynq-7020, which has a higher end FPGA with 85K logic cells. All the Zynq SoCs run Linux on dual 667MHz to 866MHz Cortex-A9 cores.

Longtime Linux user contributes to Pacemaker, founds new project

Linux

In 1997, I was part of a team that was looking at new technologies that we might want to incorporate into our datacenter. One of the technologies I chose to look at was Linux. So, I loaded up Red Hat 3.0.3 (IIRC) and started learning. The more I studied it, the more I realized that Linux could replace many of the custom operating systems (OS) that we used in our products, in addition to its usefulness in the datacenter.

Linux vs GNU/Linux - A Reader's Response

Filed under
GNU
Linux

What's in a name? I think it is bigger than a name. Whatever the name might or might not be, I for one am very grateful to everyone involved. One small plea, I get an impression that not enough people make donations to software producers. I suspect even small donations would be appreciated from time to time. Whatever the name it is a remarkable movement.

Huawei P Smart review

With a decent 18:9 screen, the P Smart is a fine Android phone that should appeal to anyone looking for a cheap contract phone. However, the fact it’s so similar to the Honor 9 Lite (which costs £100 less when bought SIM-free) makes it hard to recommend, especially as the Honor has a couple of extra features – dual SIM and a second front camera – which the Huawei lacks.
