Hands-on with Raspbian GNU/Linux Stretch for Raspberry Pi by https://is.gd/b7MY9F

Well, isn’t that just the way things go? I go away for a week (bicycling in northeast Holland, very nice) and a new release of Raspbian for the Raspberry Pi is announced. I shouldn’t complain, though, because it gives me something to do as I adjust to my new life as an OAP.

The Raspberry Pi has taken the world by storm, launching a whole new hobby computing revolution. The little microcomputer has inspired makers, developers and enthusiasts to create their own projects in fields as diverse as IoT, home automation and even space exploration.

However, if the Raspberry Pi isn’t quite right for you, there are plenty of other single-board computers to choose from. So if it doesn’t quite float your boat, here are some of the best alternatives.

Turn An Old Monitor Into A Daily Status Board by https://is.gd/80Hi5o

My mirror doesn’t come to life and tell me about the rest of my day when I walk in bleary-eyed to the bathroom, as much as I wish it did.

An always-on dashboard relaying to me my calendar appointments and the weather would both help me start my day with a better understanding of what I need to get done, and keep me from walking through the city in the rain. Fortunately, with a little tinkering (Linux and Raspberry) you can turn whatever devices you have lying around into your own DIY status board.

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.
