Linus on MacBook Air, Raspberry Pi and other things. Good stuff.
What's the word I'm looking for… p4wn3d?
A very well produced review of the mighty board that could, if you could just get your hands on one. Main points I took from the review: 1) you get what you pay for: daily desktop operations will be sticky with 90 sec to load GIMP and 10+ secs to get a web browser up; this'll require patience; 2) overclocking will possible, though may not really be worth it; 3) the Pi needs something lightweight, other than Debian, to run with; thankfully the Puppy Linux team is hard at work. Arch will be going into mine, if my Pi ever actually shows up.
Learning the Mass Eff.. I mean Airbus…
This would be more impressive had he run Mint on the MB Pro. How about Arch Linux on on MB Pro [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MacBook]? Even better.
Nokia contributing to Linux more than Google. Hmmm…

I am compelled to try this. Of course, instead of a game, I could just put the time in to make my current real distro to, you know, work.
Gnome 4.0? I see what you did there DistroWatch, well played.
18 out of 20. I think. I feel, how do you say, old?
Maybe my Nook Simple Touch has had a rougher-than-average life, since from day one it had been tossed around in my kitbag, either squeezed in between and/or under about 30 lbs of manuals and charts, or casually (read: carelessly) placed on either too hot or too cold surface in the cockpit — yes, we are allowed to read in cruise flight, like, erm… company manuals and such….
Anyway,it finally pooped out. No easy fix found on the internets — it had already the latest firmware update; with an unresponsive screen, not responding to power cycles, with a full battery, and eventually, without a battery (it’s not designed to be replaceable) the recovery effort was utterly useless. To my surprise though, and due to my lack of technical knowledge of e-ink displays, this screen still stays on. It is nice to put this device to rest, under a waterfall, with note “Press ‘n’ button below to wake up your nook”…
