 #CT
 
Awesome:
 
After seeing the cost for his CT scan, Phil Jansen decided it was time to try to build an open-source desktop CT scanner for small objects, and to do it for much less than the cost of a single scan. Read his story in this article from MAKE Volume 38: http://bit.ly/1eGilwW

This stick is no stooge. It has the brains of a puck, and most of the brawn. But because it's a stick, it's cheaper and simpler, and therefore a great option for people new to the whole puck-and-stick game.

This will be especially interesting to those considering Linux to replace XP, as Lubuntu and Xubuntu run marvelously well even on older computers:
 
What's new in Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, and Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.

A new version of Ubuntu means a new version of Ubuntu flavours. We've highlighted some key changes for the 14.04 releases of some of the most popular flavours.

Seems every review I come across for #Ubuntu 14.04 has been very favorable - kudos to everyone who contributed to this wonderfully usable, efficient new version.
 
If you like Ubuntu Linux, you're going to love Ubuntu 14.04.
Summary: I still find Ubuntu with Unity the best desktop of all for users who don't know computers and just want something easy to use.

Most of the testimony submitted thus far suggests Jobs initiated this conspiracy - what honest judge would forbid such evidence?
