Down

Pipelight, which allows to run your favorite Silverlight application directly inside your Linux browser. The project combines the effort by Erich E. Hoover with a new browser plugin that embeds Silverlight directly in any Linux browser supporting the Netscape Plugin API. He worked on a set of Wine patches to get Playready DRM protected content working inside Wine and afterwards created an Ubuntu package called Netflix Desktop. This package allows one to use Silverlight inside a Windows version of Firefox, which works as a temporary solution but is not really user-friendly and moreover requires Wine to translate all API calls of the browser. To solve this problem we created Pipelight. read more...

Linux file manager comparison review

Up

Down

Reviewing and rating six of the best Linux file managers...
The litmus test for any file manager, then, is its ability to manage large numbers of files efficiently, and this is one of the two main criteria for the applications in this roundup. Our other primary concern is advocacy. Could each file manager here help convince inexperienced Linux users that the OS can be either familiar and easy to use, or different in that it's much more flexible than what they've previously experienced?

Currency Traders on Raspberry Pi

Up
vote
Down

You can now run Currency Traders on your Raspberry Pi. It is extremely efficient and takes only about 2.2% of the memory of a 512MB RPi and less than 0.5% of the CPU. More CPU will be consumed when players are online, of course, but it should support up to a hundred or so concurrent players on a normally clocked Pi.

The installation is four quick steps, described in the readme.txt file. The entire system is a single binary, available either dynamically linked or statically linked. The static version should work on most any Pi running most any Linux. The dynamically-linked version was compiled and tested on Raspbian Wheezy and may work without library fiddling on other Pi Linuxes. [links removed]
