coolendar Ubuntu Intrepid for the XO From OLPC Alex Belits (alias Teapot) has released a customized version of Ubuntu Intrepid (8.10) for the OLPC XO. This is an easy-to-setup, easy-to-use desktop operating system for the XO based on the rock-solid foundations of Ubuntu. It is ideal for G1G1 adult donors who would like to have a real desktop environment instead of Sugar or for children who are already used to more traditional computers. When Ubuntu is installed, the Sugar installation is not affected. The whole OS boots/runs comfortably from the SD card. It also has the most important power management features of Sugar so the XO can be used like a real laptop with it. XO specific customizations Deep suspend/resume works for closing/opening the lid Automatic shallow suspend is supported by a custom script which activates shallow suspend if there is no user input and there is no high load on the system. Notable features Xfce desktop preconfigured with GDM, so the user gets a graphical login and desktop without extra setup. su -l

Essential Resources: Programming languages, toolkits and libraries This is part of a series of posts to share with readers a useful collection of some of the most important, effective and practical data visualisation resources. This post presents the range of data visualisation programming languages, toolkits and libraries, sometimes used in isolation, often used in partnership to accomplish specific functions. Please note, I may not have personally used all the packages or tools presented but have seen sufficient evidence of their value from other sources. Whilst some inclusions may be contentious from a quality/best-practice perspective, they may still provide some good features and provide value to a certain audience out there. Finally, to avoid re-inventing the wheel, descriptive text may have been reproduced from the native websites if they provide the most articulate descriptions.
