This is the last article in a four-part series on the current state of 3D printing. In the first part, I gave an overall introduction to differences in 3D printing since I wrote my original articles...
I love high-level, dynamically typed languages, such as Python, Ruby and JavaScript. They're easy—and even fun—to use. They let me express myself richly, and they lend themselves to code...
Four years ago (last leap day to be specific), the first Raspberry Pi was released. And on February 29, 2016, the third version made its debut.

Poppins

My friend and fellow Linux Journalian Kris Occhipinti recently posted a reminder on Facebook for everyone to back up regularly in 2016. Although it's something we already should be doing, if you're not a regular backer-upper, you should start today! more>>

Giving Silos Their Due

Two things I got way wrong, way back. more>>

February 2016 Issue of Linux Journal

For the Love of Linux

I love my job. I teach Linux by day and write about Linux at night. It's easy to fall in love with your work when the things you do align with your passions. more>>

Controversy at the Linux Foundation

Linux has seen more than its fair share of controversy through the years. And, that's not so surprising. For one thing, the operating system flies in the teeth of deeply entrenched multinational companies. The fact that it stands for users instead of vested interests has drawn more than a little ire as well. more>>

Don't Burn Your Android Yet

A few days ago, security firm Perception Point released the details of a zero-day exploit in the Linux kernel, which has sparked a wave of panic as the report indicated that millions of Android devices are vulnerable. more>>

Firefox OS

In December 2015, Mozilla announced that its ambitious new operating system would not be appearing on any new phones, but the project may still live on as a platform for smart TVs and IoT devices. more>>

What's New in 3D Printing, Part II: the Hardware

This is the second article in what will be a four-part series on the current state of 3D printing compared to how things were three years ago when I wrote my first series on 3D printing. Of course, this is Linux Journal, so the focus will be on Linux and open-source-specific aspects in 3D printing. I won't dwell much on proprietary products. more>>

Wine 1.8 Released

The Wine team members released version 1.8 of their project this week. The project has been in constant development since 1993 and reached version 1 only in 2008, so new releases are major events. more>>

ABINIT for Chemists

The single largest group of users on high-performance computing clusters has to be the chemists. Their CPU-year count is definitely at the very top of the list. Because of this heavy use, several different packages have become standard tools that most computational chemistry researchers use. more>>

Server Hardening

Server hardening. The very words conjure up images of tempering soft steel into an unbreakable blade, or taking soft clay and firing it in a kiln, producing a hardened vessel that will last many years. Indeed, server hardening is very much like that. more>>

Android Candy: Quality Time, or Not?

This is the season of resolutions, and in the technological world we live in, spending time off-line is a difficult but healthy activity. The problem is our lives have become so intertwined with our phones that it's easy to whip out our cell phones inadvertently to check our social networks quickly. more>>

Dear Kodi, Where's My Surround?!?!

I love Kodi. (This is just an evolution of my love for XBMC, since it's the same thing with a new name.) In fact, although I've expressed my love for Plex over and over (and over) the past few years, I still use Kodi as my main interface for the televisions in my house. more>>

Non-Linux FOSS: Open-Source Windows?

I have mixed emotions about ReactOS. It's open source. It's freely available. But, its goal is to be binary-compatible with Windows! ReactOS is not a Linux operating system. In fact, it doesn't share the UNIX architecture at all. It looks like Windows NT, and it behaves much like Windows NT.

It's just odd! more>>
