JingPad A1 Android App Support

It has been a while since I wrote about the progress of Jing-OS, the “Future Mobile OS based on Linux“, so I figured I should do that again. At the time of writing this post, Jing-OS is at version 1.1.1. The positive things The team at Jingling has put a lot of work into this […]

Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité

not sure about the last part….. As for most of us, my daily (work) life consists of using multiple devices and with the addition of CoVid-19 the homeoffice introduced a number more of them. So what are we dealing with here? I have a PC at work, that runs Windows10, I have a PC at […]

The JingPad A1, my first review

A product review I never did a product review before, since to me they are mostly pointless. If a new iPad shows up you know what you are getting, the same OS as the last one had, just with a little more power to it. If a new OS shows up, what ever company supplies […]

And frankly that is not a very good way to work, at least for me, because […]

In 80 days around CentOS 8 or faster…

The Background As some might know, I recently took a step forward in my life and became a home owner, but given I am a Linux nut and IT-Guy and the former owner left behind a 19 inch rack, it became clear very fast that a new server needed to be bought and installed, both […]
