BDD Group is readying a tiny, sub-$50, SODIMM-style computer module powered by an SOC (system-on-chip) containing a single ARM Cortex A8 core along with a Mali-400 GPU, among other functions. The business card-sized “A10 COM” will be supported with Android and Linux BSPs. BDD’s CEO, Rowdy VanCleave, says the A10 COM was created to enable [...]
The Python Software Foundation recently went public with a battle against a company in Europe that was trying to claim a trademark over the name used for more than two decades by one of the world's most popular programming languages.
The tool that usually I use to download from the command line is wget, it’s simple to use and it’s installed (or easily installable) on any system, but if you want something that can do the same job in a smarter and faster way you must really test Aria2. Aria2 is a lightweight multi-protocol & multi-source command-line download utility. It supports HTTP/HTTPS, FTP, BitTorrent and Metalink. aria2 can be manipulated via built-in JSON-RPC and XML-RPC interfaces, let’s see some practical use and examples.
Nvidia envisions a future in which ARM processors and the GPU-maker's CUDA parallel-computing platform and programming model will work together in perfect harmony, and the company has a raft of planned CUDA enhancements to not only make that coexistence seamless, but to enhance that programming environment for discrete GPUs, as well.
From the 'It's Done, When It's Done' files: Watching Debian Linux releases come together has always been a long and drawn out process. Few other Linux projects (if any) have the same breadth of platform support or packages and few (if any) have the same fiercely principled approach (hurray Debian Free Software Guidelines) to development either.

In our benchmarks of Microsoft Windows 8, we have found that Intel's Windows OpenGL driver is generally superior to that of their open-source Linux graphics driver. Some progress has been made, but in today's testing of an ASUS Ultrabook bearing an Ivy Bridge processor, Linux has a ways to go for some games in matching the Windows binary performance and features.
In today[he]#039[/he]s data driven world, the need for accurate data and informed analysis is paramount for innovation and progress. Data and statistics[he]nbsp[/he]that are collected and aggregated have a huge impact on a country[he]#039[/he]s education initiatives which can reform a country[he]#039[/he]s polices and decision-making.However, accurate data can be hard to find in undeveloped countries where education measures can suffer from limitations in collection and reporting mechanisms, or can even be skewed to meet political needs. This data is vital in determining the allocation of resources to schools that are in dire[he]nbsp[/he]need for the right teachers and school supplies. This situation is particularly true in Haiti, where data collection systems are weak.A new data collection system called PhiCollect is working to solve this problem by creating a comprehensive assessment system that can evaluate a student[he]#039[/he]s intellectual growth. Developed by WebFirst, Inc. in[he]nbsp[/he]partnership with HavServe Volunteer Network, a non-profit organization that aims to empower rural[he]nbsp[/he]villages in undeveloped countries—together they hope to break the cycle of[he]nbsp[/he]extreme poverty, hunger, diseases, and child mortality in small villages through education.
Today I would like to take a moment to discuss a topic that has received much attention on Linux blogs/news sites in recent weeks – Ubuntu’s concept for the Mir display server. I would like to start by pointing out I’ve said the concept of Mir. That is right folks – at this point it is just a concept, nothing more...

Is the Tux3 file-system alive and well for Linux or will it face a fate like Reiser4 where it may never see a mainline state? Tux3 is the file-system that warranted attention a few years prior as an open-source versioning file-system to succeed the Tux2 file-system that was challenged by licensing issues. While promising at first, Tux3 virtually disappeared for a few years time.
gnome 3.8 is on track to be released on time as usual (the release candidate will be out later today): it’s a great incremental release with improvements all over the place, but I’ll let the release notes speak.For my own part, I put my fingers here and there either making patches or trying to help (annoy?) people doing the real hard work with reviews and suggestions.
