A look at Elementary OS 0.4.1 – Loki by https://goo.gl/wc4638

If you’re a seasoned power user, you’ll likely find Elementary OS to be rather boring, closed off, and annoying. However, I have installed Elementary OS on machines of friends who are not very computer friendly, and they have had no problems for years now, without a single complaint.

Loki is based on Ubuntu 16.04, and so reaps the benefits of the Ubuntu repositories.

Endless OS 3.2 Review – The Offline Distro by https://is.gd/asbQz9

Endless OS is a free, easy-to-use operating system preloaded with over 100 apps, making it useful from the moment you turn it on. Endless takes Linux to a whole different dimension. It is intuitive and quite different.

The developers have come out with a distro that targets mainly developing countries and also computers with no or limited internet access. So even without internet, you will have access to stuff like Wikipedia. The aim is to provide an operating system that comes with everything you will need.

OpenELEC 8.0.4 Kodi-focused Linux distro now available for PC, Raspberry Pi, WeTek, and more by https://is.gd/LB6phO

If you are looking for a dedicated media box for your living room or bedroom, the first thing you should consider is Kodi. This is a media center software package that delivers a very focused consumption experience.

…OpenELEC…… can run on traditional PC hardware, but also Raspberry Pi, and, my favorite — WeTek boxes. Today, version 8.0.4 achieves stable release. It is a fairly ho-hum update, focusing mostly on fixes and stability.

Linux Foundation: Introduction to Linux course review by https://is.gd/UQXex0

The Linux Foundation offers a number of online courses via the edX platform including an Introduction to Linux.

One very attractive feature of these courses is that they are free to take, although you can pay an additional fee of $99 (around £75) for a formal ‘certificate of completion’ if you wish.

The Introduction to Linux course has been prepared by Jerry Cooperstein, the Training Program Director for the Linux Foundation, and there’s even a short welcome message from the creator of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds himself. So it’s safe to say you’re in good hands.
