As power consumption grows in priority, the thin client world is increasingly turning to ARM processors. Atrust Computer Corp. offers a number of ARM-based thin clients, and like its x86-based Intel Atom- and Via-based systems, they run a custom Atrust Linux OS. While the company’s previous ARM systems ran on single-core Cortex-A8-based Sitara system-on-chips from Texas Instruments, the Atrust t66 runs on a faster, quad-core, Cortex-A9-based Freescale i.MX6. No clock rate was supplied for the t66, but the i.MX6 typically runs at 1.2GHz, and offers 2D, 3D, and video coprocessors.

With all the great leaps forward which Linux gaming has made recently, it is sad to see when a step backward is made. Rather than a new game appearing on the ever-expanding library of Linux games, today it seems a game has been delayed due to the actions of a few.

All, I would like to formally introduce the Linux Data Storage community on Google Plus. The community just went through some recent renovations to make it more welcoming and simplified to new members. It focuses on all types of data storage for the Linux platform. If your interests are in Solid State Media, File Systems, Data Backup & Recovery, Cloud storage, LAN storage, there is a place for you. If you are looking for a consolidated section of more advanced tutorials, this community is your one-stop-shop. Whether you are a hobbyist working on your Desktop or an admin on your servers, this community should fit your needs. So I invite those who are interested in data storage technologies (under Linux) to join and participate in this growing community. I look forward to seeing some of you there.

The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 17 'Qiana' KDE. Linux Mint 17 is a long-term support release which will be supported until 2019. It comes with updated software and it brings refinements and many new features to make your desktop even more comfortable to use. The Update Manager was hugely improved. It shows more information, it looks better, it feels faster, and it gets less in your way. It no longer needs to reload itself in root mode when you click on it. It no longer checks for an Internet connection or waits for the network manager and it no longer locks the APT cache at session startup. The UI was improved, the icons were modified a bit and the changelog retrieval is now much faster and more reliable.
