Runs Linux

Ubuntu Powered Drone

It seems world is slowly and steadily moving towards Linux powered devices. After Linux was used to power destroyers for US Navy, now Erle Robotics has used Ubuntu to power a drone.
Erle Robotics, a Spanish company, has been at the forefront of using Linux in devices and had introduced the Erle-Copter drone powered by Ubuntu Snappy Core back in February 2015, has launched the world’s first Ubuntu powered Drone on 3rd May.

Desktop App Pick

Fort Password Manager

Fort allows you to store passwords and other sensitive information. Today it’s important not to use the same password on multiple places. Passwords should also be more than 8 characters long and contain mixed case letters, numbers and special characters. Of course it’s impossible to remember such passwords. That’s where Fort comes in. All you have to do is to remember one password, the Fort master key. Fort will remember rest of your passwords.

Weekly Spotlight

Centos 7 on the Desktop

Last night I started a challenge. A good friend of mine said to me “I doubt you could use CentOS 7 on your desktop for a month.” After thinking about it, I realised I probably could. So I accepted his challenge. Mind you this was at 10:30 at night. Maybe tiredness played a role in my decision, but I am going to document my experience with CentOS 7 on my desktop for the next month.

CryEngine to Support Linux

Let’s talk about the pengui… elephant in the room If you read the above paragraph, it might not come as a major surprise to you, but we are proud to announce that we will add an Open GL implementation and support for running your EaaS games on Linux with one of our next updates. For now, Linux support will be limited to the game launcher, and the Sandbox editor will still require Microsoft Windows. And of course, Linux support will be subject to the same developer-friendly terms as on Windows: Your monthly subscription fee will allow you to sell your games for Linux in addition to Windows, with no additional fees or royalties required.

A massive change for Ubuntu package management is on the horizon

Snappy Personal is slotted to take the place of Desktop Next. If you’ve been following Ubuntu, you know that Next is the iteration of Ubuntu that will feature Unity 8 and Mir, which will power desktops, phones, and tablets. Snappy Personal will be the desktop image that will install Ubuntu 15.10 (if it arrives in time for that release) that’s built with said Unity 8 and Mir.

Ubuntu Plans for Python 3 by Default

Within the Ubuntu world, by Ubuntu 16.04 LTS next April they want Python 3 by default and potentially to only have Python 3.5. In upstream Debian for their 9.0 Stretch release they are also hoping for no Python2 by default, albeit the Stretch release is much further out.
