Q4OS Linux Distro Adds a Trinity Repository, Now Ready for ARM Devices
Softpedia has been informed earlier today, February 7, by the developers of the Q4OS Linux distribution about the immediate availability for download of the seventh point release in the Q4OS 1.4 "Orion" series.
Q4OS 1.4.7 "Orion" is, in fact, a small, yet important maintenance release, which gives users full access to all the Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) packages by default, thanks to the implementation of a system-wide Trinity software repository.
This way, Q4OS users won't have to add manually any third-party Trinity Desktop Environment software repositories anymore. Besides this important change, Q4OS 1.4.7 delivers the usual security patches and software updates.
I’ve been looking for an ARMed replacement for Beast’s power-sucking/fanfull/large corpse. This isn’t it. It is a very well documented controller that ships with a minimal installation of Debian GNU/Linux complete with GUI. I could, for instance, use this thing to make a pulsewidth modulator for a power supply. It’s obviously overkill for such a task but at the advertised price, $9, it’s OK.
If you want to build a powerful $40 Linux or Android PC with 4K video support, consider Hardkernel's Odroid-C2 computer.
The developer board is an uncased computer like the popular Raspberry Pi 2, which sells for $35. But South Korea-based Hardkernel claims Odroid-C2 has more horsepower than its popular rival and can be a desktop replacement.
In other words, this latest tablet computer, the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu edition, is somewhat a “convertible” PC.
In the midst of Apple Inc and Alphabet Inc via Google dominance in the PC, tablet computers and smartphones categories, Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, has introduced a tablet computer which, it claims, can be used as a personal computer, or like a laptop.
It’s the first device of Canonical’s Ubuntu “converged” lineup alongside its European partner, BQ (no word yet from Canonical about United States release, or partners).
