  • ObjectBox, database for IoT devices, adopts snaps for simplicity and ease of installation.

    Snaps? They are containerized software packages simple to create and install on Linux. Because they bundle their dependencies, they work on all major Linux systems without modification.

    Martin Wimpress of Canonical has made it clear that Ubuntu is committed to Snap.

    ObjectBox is a database and synchronisation solution for rapid, efficient edge computing for mobile and IoT devices. Rather than each device sending all its data back to a cloud/server, ObjectBox enables data storage and processing within the device.

    ObjectBox, database for IoT devices, adopts snaps for simplicity and ease of installation | Snapcraft
    When designers put their heart and soul into making super-fast, easy-to-use software to help take Internet of Things (IoT) apps to the next level, installation of that software needs to meet the same high standards. ObjectBox is a database and synchronisation solution for rapid, efficient edge computing for mobile and IoT devices. Rather […]

  • Thoughts about Disney aside, for all the bad they represent, let's take a moment to think about the fact that Linux got addressed by the company itself and in just a few days of the issue.

    Meanwhile: Google Drive is nowhere to be seen coming for Linux.

    Of course these are not recommended for use to start with, as the goal is user freedom, but these definitely help Linux adoption.

    Once people are on Linux, they'll eventually find the free as in freedom alternatives if wants come such.

    That’s a big deal for educational computers, office machines for your business or even just the HTPC you’ve been thinking of buying.
