Raspberry Pi 2: Raspbian (ARMv6) v Linaro (ARMv7) Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, March 09 2015 @ 02:03 PM EST
Contributed by: fk

The Raspberry Pi Foundation make it pretty clear that Raspbian is the recommended operating system for the Raspberry Pi series of computers. Most of the Foundation's documentation and support directs users to Raspbian. The downloads section of their website does list other operating system images. But there are many more images available, and one really piqued my curiosity; a Ubuntu 14.10 / Linaro 15.01 "developer" image. Unlike Raspbian, this image is compiled for ARMv7/armhf.

Learn the Art of Computer Programming With These Great Free Beginner Books Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, February 01 2015 @ 02:32 PM EST
Contributed by: fk

Learning to code still remains a buzz. The problem facing any budding new programmer is how to start. Questions abound. What's the best programming language for a beginner? What's the best way to learn? A beginner might be tempted by reading books titled 'teach yourself [insert programming language] in 24 hours'. But don't be in such a rush. In my opinion, it is best to first get interested in programming, then seek out some experienced coders and discuss and discuss, and learn programming by doing, practising with lots of practical examples and the aid of an excellent introductory book.

MintBox Mini gives Linux users a pocket-sized PC Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, January 18 2015 @ 10:16 PM EST
Contributed by: fk

The MintBox Mini comes from Fit-PC, a company that has been making these mini PC devices for quite some time now. In fact, this is the third incarnation of its MintBox line which started back in 2012. Compared to its older siblings, this "mini" is said to be a one fifth the size. The MintBox 2 measures 19cm x 16cm x 4cm (7.5 in x 6.3 in x 1.6 inc), so we leave it to your vivid imagination to see how much smaller this box really is.
