This is just to announce the imminent completion of a brand-new Linux release,
which I’m calling the Debian Linux Release. This is a release that I have put
together basically from scratch; in other words, I didn’t simply make some
changes to SLS and call it a new release. I was inspired to put together this
release after running SLS and generally being dissatisfied with much of it,
and after much altering of SLS I decided that it would be easier to start
from scratch. The base system is now virtually complete (though I’m still
looking around to make sure that I grabbed the most recent sources for
everything), and I’d like to get some feedback before I add the “fancy” stuff.
Since 1993, Debian has grown into one of the largest and most successful volunteer software projects in the world, and forms the basis for projects like Ubuntu and Raspbian, the default operating system for the Raspberry Pi. Even if you’ve never heard of Debian, there’s a pretty good chance you use something that relies on it.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
