Gnome founder: bye bye Linux, I'm on Mac now


And now we know why Gnome is a little too much inspired to OSX interface...
We are always inspired by things we like.
Just kidding, just kidding...
And nope, I don't like the Gnome default/OSX style.

LeoCAD, cad with Lego bricks!

LeoCAD is a CAD program that can be used to create virtual LEGO models. It has an easy to use interface and currently features over 4000 different pieces created by the  LDraw community.
Yep, it's oooooold, but it's funny.

Let's try it!

There're a bunch of elements, that is good, but there're no grids and assembling is a bit difficult.
There are multiple views and the possibility to animate your scene!

Download for Windows and Linux:

Trying Ubuntu 12.04 :slowpoke:

I'm just trying Ubuntu 12.04 (yeah, slowpoke breaking news and I'm not a big fan of it) and for another big scoop (slowpoke again) I have to say that Unity UI is really really bad.

Another step to bring down desktop UI to the mobile OS UI, sacrificing functionality for fashion.

How can you use that crap?

So, the right steps are:
  •  update Ubuntu
  •  terminal :   sudo apt-get install kde-full    (yeah, full - good internet connection and time required -)
  •  LogOut
  •  choose KDE from Login options
Oh yes, finally something comfortable... resizable gadgets, previews, everything customizable... the Heaven.

Boom of requests for Raspberry Pi

The mini-computer with the ARM processor and 256MB of ram, capable of multiple things (like a media center in  1080p video playback) has received a boom in purchase orders

Very, very interesting. It's pity that they will take months to execute all orders!
