Interviews

At the time of writing, over five million Raspberry Pis have been sold. That’s the same as the number of ZX Spectrums sold in the 80s. And like the Spectrum, the Pi is likely to have a far-reaching legacy, helping the next generation of games designers and computer scientists find their feet.

Countless numbers of people have helped make this happen, but Eben Upton has been there from the beginning. He’s the founder and the CEO of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and he’s still shaping every aspect of the Raspberry Pi, from its hardware to the software. We met Eben shortly before the launch of the model 2. He told us about the effort they’ve put into making the Pi better and how a chance conversation with the boss of Google shaped the Pi’s future.

Getting to Know Linux File Permissions

Filed under
Linux

At this point, you should now have a solid understand of the basic Linux file permissions. There are more advanced issues that you can now easily study, such as setuid and setgid and ACLs. Without a good foundation of the basics, however, you’d quickly get lost with those next-level topics.

Linux file permissions haven’t changed much, since the early days. And, they most likely won’t change much going into the future.

HowTos

Will your program run on Linux, or for that matter CrossOver Mac? CrossOver keeps a complete listing of what runs, and what doesn't. You can also try CrossOver with a 15-day free trial to make sure the software you need works well on a Linux system.

Maru is a platform that lets you run Android on a smartphone, but connect the phone to a keyboard, mouse and display to run a desktop Linux-based operating system (Debian 8 Jessie, to be precise).

Developer Preetam D’Souza announced the project a week ago and opened up a beta program for Nexus 5 smartphone users. The goal was to get few beta testers… apparently thousands of people signed up… and a number of people have offered to help develop the software.
