Starting Your Maker Space

We have been lucky enough to attend numerous events here in Winnipeg, Manitoba about bringing technology into the class room and to show educators what kind of tools we are using to innovate right now. We have decided to build a simple guide for schools who want to find the resources needed to do so.

Ubuntu 14.04

Ubuntu 14.04 is here and ready for you to use. I have upgraded my laptop and tested it out, this has been a good release with a good amount of improvements. The major improvements are in the Unity interface in my opinion. The desktop environment does not feel half baked or unfinished anymore. To me the Unity interface feels much more fluid and smooth and with hardware support in the Linux kernel, which underpins the OS as a whole, more robust than ever, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is pretty much the complete package.
