Android apps have arrived on Chrome OS. Right now they can be run on three Chromebook models, a number that will increase during the rest of 2016 and into the start of 2017 (Google has a full list). To save you the wait, we got hold of an Asus Chromebook Flip to show you how the Android experience works on a Chromebook.
Ever wanted to use Android on your spare desktop or laptop, maybe even tablet, but didn’t really care for all the bells and whistles offered by Jide’s Remix OS for PC? If that’s the case, then this latest Android-x86 release might just be the right fit for you. Now at version 6.0-r1, this is the first stable release of Android-x86 based on Android Marshmallow. And while it may not have yet the multi-tasking features of 7.0 Nougat, it does pave the way for that brighter future for Android on PCs.
The latest version of Android packs the usual raft of new features, but none are as flashy as its revamped multitasking abilities, especially the new side-by-side view that lets you use two apps at once.
Nougat also adds a couple of other essential new multitasking features: the ability to quickly switch between the current app and the last one you were using, as well as a one-tap method for closing all your multitasking windows at once. Let’s give the trio a try.
Apps built by Mono, the software development toolkit, were crashing indiscriminatingly on Samsung's latest Android handsets with illegal instruction errors despite the code being good. The Gamecube-Wii emulator Dolphin, and the PSP emulator PPSSPP, were also falling over on the phones.
PowerPoint is one of those programs whose use has become so ingrained in the corporate world that it is probably running the risk of becoming completely genericized, in the same way that some people use Kleenex to refer to all tissues, or BAND-AIDs to refer to all bandages.
But presenting a slideshow doesn't have to mean using PowerPoint. There are a number of totally capable open source alternatives to PowerPoint for giving visual presentations. In many cases, the features of these “alternatives” are so compelling that, unless you're absolutely forced to use PowerPoint, I don't know why you still would.

I'm thinking of buying t460s with UHD/4k display - 2560 x 1440 resolution. I am using i3wm, so I was thinking to ask here if that resolution is much better for 14inch display than regular HD, or you guys think that I should go with 1920 x 1080? So, is anybody here using i3wm+uhd+14inch ?

I'm trying to find a native Linux alternative to WinAuth which is a kind of 2-step verification program for Windows, similar to Google Authenticator. Authy is a Google Chrome addon but i use Firefox and I'd rather prefer something that can stand alone and isn't attached to something else.
One of the use cases I have for WinAuth is for Seam verifications which WinAuth supports.submitted by /u/_surashu
