We look at how Linux distros can support older hardware, how they’re tuned to run on low-memory systems and run faster on limited hardware. With more mainline distros cutting 32-bit support, it’s time to choose the top low-resource option to power your PC.
We can’t all stand still software wise, so we’re looking at the latest Gnome distros. The latest developments with the Linux audio and multimedia layer in Pipeworks. Explore how social engineering works with Kali. Pop NextCloud on Amazon Web Services. Build the classic Red Alert game with OpenRA and so much more; only Linux makes it possible!
