  • 7 Raspberry Pi projects to explore

    A few folks from our writer community weighed in to share their favorite Raspberry Pi projects to help us celebrate Raspberry Pi Day this year.

    Steve Reaver's projects are built by him at home. First up, a PlayStation One case for your Raspberry Pi.

  • How old is your oldest Raspberry Pi?

    Today is Pi Day, a day in which we celebrate the date ticking up to the 3.14 approximation of π (at least for those of us who use American-style dates). We also take today to celebrate a tiny device, not much bigger than a credit card, that shares its name with this useful, irrational number. We're talking about, of course, the Raspberry Pi.

  • 14 days of celebrating the Raspberry Pi

    Every year on March 14th, we geeks celebrate Pi Day. In the way we abbreviate dates—MMDD—March 14 is written 03/14, which numerically reminds us of 3.14, or the first three numbers of pi. What many Americans don't realize is that virtually no other country in the world uses this date format, so Pi Day pretty much only works in the US, though it is celebrated globally.

    Wherever you are in the world, let's celebrate the Raspberry Pi and wrap up this series by reviewing the topics we've covered in the past two weeks...

Linux 5.2-rc5

"It's Sunday afternoon somewhere in the world". In fact, it's _barely_ Sunday afternoon back home, where I'll be later today. But not quite yet, and I continue my slightly flaky release schedule due to my normal release time being spent on an airplane once again. In fact, that will happen the _next_ two weekends too due to yet more travel. So the releases will not be quite the clockwork they usually are. But the good news is that we're getting to the later parts of the rc series, and things do seem to be calming down. I was hoping rc5 would end up smaller than rc4, and so it turned out. There's some pending stuff still, but it all looks quite small and nothing seems to be particularly scary-looking. And this time around we don't even have any huge SPDX updates, so the diffstat looks nice and small and clean too. Normal changes all over (with drivers being the bulk of it as it should be: sound stands out, but there's gpu, HID, USB, block.. ). Outside of driver fixes there's the usual noise all ov Read more Also: Linux 5.2-rc5 Released As The End Of The Cycle Is A Few Weeks Away

Exclusive: Zorin OS And Star Labs Team Up To Offer A Beautiful Linux Laptop Experience

It's no secret I'm impressed with Zorin OS 15. The polished and user-friendly distro is worth paying attention to, especially as a gateway for beginners into the world of desktop Linux. In what, until today, would have been a totally unconnected observation, I'm also thrilled that Star Labs has popped up on my radar. The UK-based Linux laptop company has a worthy challenger to the Dell XPS 13, and Star Labs is beginning to make waves in the dedicated Linux hardware space. As someone who appreciates the efforts of both these entities, I'm thrilled to exclusively report that they'll be joining forces. Beginning this Friday June 21 at 3pm UK time, Star Labs will begin offering Zorin OS 15 as a pre-loaded option on their entire range of laptop, which currently consists of the Star LabTop Mk III and Star Lite. Zorin OS compliments existing OS options of Ubuntu and Linux Mint. Read more

The best, until OpenMandriva does better: released OMLx 4.0

Exciting news! Shortly after the release candidate we are very proud to introduce you the fruit of so much work, some visible and much more behind the scenes and under the hood. OpenMandriva Lx is a cutting edge distribution compiled with LLVM/clang, combined with the high level of optimisation used for both code and linking (by enabling LTO, and profile guided optimizations for some key packages where reliable profile data is easy to generate) used in its building. OMLx 4.0 brings a number of major changes since 3.x release... Read more Also: OpenMandriva Lx 4.0 Released With AMD Zen Optimized Option, Toolchain Updates
