Fancy trying Fuchsia on your Intel Compute Stick?
Google's new operating system Fuchsia (https://fuchsia.googlesource.com/fuchsia/) has been widely reported in the last few days. But how much fun would it be to stand round the water cooler and impress everyone with your hand...

+Jean-Luc Aufranc The purpose can only be conjecture at the moment until Google disclose more details. However it is a new OS whose kernel is scalable across IOT to PC so potentially ...

Now you've finished upgrading all your mini PCs to Windows 10 why not try dual booting on the CherryTrail-based Intel Compute Stick?
Currently dual booting Ubuntu and Windows relies on using the BIOS's 32-bit bootloader. However booting sometimes results in a blank coloured (typicaly purple) screen so switching the OS requires a cold boot through the BIOS ...

When Intel released its Ubuntu Compute Stick it was heavily criticized as being under-spec'd. Also criticized was the choice of Ubuntu with Unity as it was deemed to be too demanding. With this in mind I've combined the lates...

Yes, the ZRAM advantages are available across all Ubuntu flavours.

Personally I wouldn't try Windows on the STCK1A8LFC because the hardware doesn't meet the minimum specification requirements.

A brief look at Intel's Compute Stick roadmap together with running Lubuntu Yakkety Yak Alpha 1 on the STCK1A8LFC Intel Compute Stick
When Intel's first Compute Stick loaded with Ubuntu (STCK1A8LFC) was released in late April 2015 the RRP was around $110. Recently it has been advertised at less than half that and even as low as $49.99. However when I looked...

Hi Ian, Thanks for your reply. I completely understand. I think we all have our reasons why we do stuff. In my case it's the battle against the set-top boxes and the cable companies. I just want a bunch of cheap media player sticks which I can plug into any device and watch the content I want to the way I want to, without being restricted to app stores and the like. Mele does the hardware part and the Linux the software part. I think it's a great development that you can buy a 70 buck stick and get brilliant software for it. I think it's a heavens gift that Mele doesn't make software for it. See how Lenovo screws up the products when they do. But your 100% correct, they should give you the credits for the work you have done. It's because of people like you that these developments become possible. I will update my contribution / package and mention the people who it is thanks to and who omitted this in the first place. Shame and name ;)
