Run Raspberry Pi PIXEL Desktop on a PC or Mac – an Exton modified Build 161223 with Refracta Tools

Posted 12-24-2016 at 01:24 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 12-24-2016 at 02:40 AM by exton (More INFO)

What's happening?

Posted 12-22-2016 at 08:41 AM by masinick

I tend to read and write a lot more Email, and I've also participated in news groups and forums for decades, preceding many of the collections of information, news, and collaboration, and probably before over half of the current generation of frequent social media participants were born.

I'm still very active in technology, but as you might expect, the things that occupy my time change...
