Linux for Internet of Things (IoT)
This month, since the focus of the magazine is on IoT, we have bundled a few Linux OSs with this DVD, which can be installed on ARM based computers and can be used for IoT devices.
Ubuntu Core for Raspberry Pi 2 and 3: Ubuntu Core is a tiny, transactional version of Ubuntu for IoT devices and large container deployments. It runs a new breed of super-secure, remotely upgradeable Linux app packages known as ‘snaps’, and it’s trusted by leading IoT players — ranging from chipset vendors to device makers and system integrators. Ubuntu Core is different from classic Ubuntu distributions. It is a purposely lightweight and transactionally updated system, with security at its heart. The image files are in the other_isos folder on the root of the bundled DVD. Fedora 25 LXDE for ARM: Fedora is an easy-to-use operating system for laptop and desktop computers, with a complete set of tools for developers and makers of all kinds. The bundled image is for ARM-based media centres, kiosks, laptops and other ARMpowered devices where a graphical interface is desired. It comes with the Lightweight X11 desktop environment. The image file is in the other_isos folder on the root of the bundled DVD.
