openSUSE/SUSE engineers have come up with a solution that lets users replace Ubuntu with openSUSE Leap on Windows 10.
This tutorial will help you in running openSUSE Leap (command line), within Windows.

IoT device vendors now have a very powerful and flexible board at their disposal. The Raspberry Pi foundation has launched the much-awaited Compute Module 3.

There are clear advantages of using the Compute Module instead of non-standard custom boards that are expensive to design and manufacture. In addition to lowering hardware cost, it also reduced the load of software development.


The new compute module comes with a 64 bit processor and 1GB of RAM, with flexibility of on-board storage

The OS is just part of the IoT security problem. Braindead engineering decisions and custom protocols seem to cause a huge number of issues too. That won't be fixed by this alone. Not saying it's not a good step tho!

Trump's 'swearing-in' ceremony will be real swearing: "I am coming to Fuck you America."

I fear that Trump's clueless Tweets are going to hurt US economy and reputation a lot. If you want to put America first, which is so wrong in 2017, then other countries will also put themselves first and that tribalism will only hurt us.

+Xmetal​ they can say all they want but supporters don't make the agenda. Trump will do what he wants until he's alternated everyone.

It's the best streaming box out there, with built-in Plex Media Server and gaming capabilities. 
The new TV brings Google Assistant and Amazon Videos to the platform.

Google+ is committing suicide. I will be moving away from the platform and use Facebook and Twitter more. No point in investing in Google's non commercial products anymore.

Running Ubuntu in macOS, using Veertu which uses native macOS hypervisor. It's gazillion times better than Virtual Box and damn faster than Parallels. Now let's see how stable it is.

Yes. Thank you Obama. 
The Army intelligence analyst convicted in a massive 2010 leak of security documents is set to be freed in five months instead of in 2045.

It's amazing how my 4 years old son is using Nikon D 750 as a pro. His shots are so good.

A key reason the Republican Party is having such a hard time with the replacement part of “repeal and replace” is that Obamacare is virtually the same privatized mandate plan it pushed for since President Richard Nixon first proposed the National Health Strategy in 1971 then again in 1974. Then the GOP revived its privatized mandate plan again in 1993 with then-Senate Minority Leader Bob Dole helping to propose the Health Equity and Access Reform...

Pretty funny. Sounds like all they need to do is scrub the name "Obama" <shudder> from it. Call it "GOPcare"?

That site is pretty bad. Yesterday it wouldn't load at all, today it slowed down my computer and then blew up Chrome. Maybe someone should nmap it :-D
