I usually use GIMP (the "GNU Image Manipulation Program") for editing photos, changing colors, resizing photos, applying significant effects and more.

There are many options and plugins. So if, you are looking to learn or master the GIMP program, give The Book of GIMP a try. read more...

Linux file manager comparison review

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]
