Google invests in Neverware, a startup that’s turning dead PCs into Chromebooks

Neverware, a New York City-based startup with a software platform that converts legacy computers into Chromebooks, announced today that it has raised a new round of investment led by Google. It won’t say the exact amount, but it will likely be more than the $6.

Download New Storyboarding Software That’s Free & Open Source

Quick tip: The new software package, Storyboarder, makes it “easy to visualize a story as fast you can draw stick figures.” You can create a story idea without actually making a full-blown movie and see how it looks. Storyboarder is free. It’s open source.

Using eopkg

NOTE: Do not try to use “pisi” in Solus. It has been removed. eopkg is an incompatible fork of pisi with many advanced features. Only the “eopkg” command is supported  ALSO NOTE: PLEASE do not post instructions for mutilating Solus installations with extracted (INCOMPATIBLE) DEB or RPM files.

Fork of the PiSi Package Manager, originally from Pardus Linux, and adapted/maintained during the lifetime of SolusOS, EvolveOS and Solus.  Please note that we plan to replace eopkg with sol.
