Netrunner 14.1 Screenshot Tour

This is the release announcement of Netrunner 14.1 Main edition ‘Frontier’. The ‘14.1’ indicates an updated and polished release of Netrunner 14 LTS on the same underlying base. Since 14.1 is using the same ‘Trusty’ base as Netrunner 14, there is no need for users of 14 to migrate; simply updating from the shared backports ppa of the Frontier release cycle should give the same result, while keeping customizations in place. So 14.1 is a fresh starting point for new users who want to install an up-to-date KDE 4-based system from the ISO image. This is the first time we are working on both updating our current LTS base (Frontier), while at the same time preparing the next release, Netrunner 15 (Prometheus), with the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.2.

Google makes it easier to run Linux on a Chromebook via a USB drive…sort of…

I wrote a post recently about how Chromebooks were hurting Microsoft, and now Google has made Chromebooks potentially even more appealing by theoretically making it easier for you to run Linux on them. Developer mode in Chrome OS now offers the option of booting from USB, so it might be possible to boot a Linux distro off a USB drive and run it it on your Chromebook.
