Linkfest for Thursday, July 10


  • SolidRun has released the HummingBoard, a souped-up version of the Raspberry Pi, available at a couple of performance levels and in a couple of form-factors. Looks very interesting for the “Internet of Things” applications…
  • Got a really old PC or laptop? Turn it into something useful with LXLE, a remastered version of Ubuntu LTS designed to give even severely underpowered machines (by today’s standards) a pretty kickass and highly functional desktop.
  • The Obama Administration has killed the nomination of pharmaceutical executive Phil Johnson after an outcry from the tech sector and a public statement from Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) that he wouldn’t support the nomination.
