Ubuntu tablet and smartphone: a personal "mini" review

TuxMachines - Sun, 2016-07-24 15:15

So when Ubuntu and Canonical revealed they were partnering with actual, big manufacturers for Ubuntu mobile devices, a spark of hope was rekindled in my heart. Let it be clear, I am by no means an Ubuntu user, not even a fan. I left the fold nearly a decade ago, after having spent quite some time using and contributing to Kubuntu (to the point of becoming a certified “member” even, though I never ascended to the Council). In terms of loyalties and usage, I am a KDE user (and “helper”) foremost. I use Fedora because it just works for me, for now. So, yes, an Ubuntu Touch device would be another compromise for me, but it would be the smallest one. Or so I hoped.

DIY Linux-based scientific calculator, is it good idea or not?

Reddit - Sun, 2016-07-24 13:37

I'm currently planning to build Linux based scientific calculator using ARM based board such as PocketCHIP. I'm currently wondering it is good idea or not.

If I install GNU Octave, Gnuplot, Julia and good text editor on it, can it serve as usable calculator? If not, what is your opinion?

What Do I Buy My...

Reddit - Sun, 2016-07-24 10:21

...in my case, wife. ;)

Admin: I'm a long time Linux user/admin and am not intimidated by setup, but I do need something that will work reliably.

I'm looking for a laptop with specs that will get her decent battery life and relatively full functionality. Her primary needs are email, browsing, and video consumption. I would go with a Chromebook something, but I'd really rather get a machine a few steps closer to open and with a bit more flexibility. What should I buy?
