I’m obviously interested in what FEL will offer ;). Well Im still currently downloading F14 and will come back once I’m done setting it up (hopefully won’t take too long). You can get a copy of Fedora yourself here: https://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora or here: https://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-all

In other news, I’ve finally got time to start learning to use PSoC 3 made by Cypress Semiconductors.  Their IDE, PSoC Creator is simply too good – it does most of the work for you. Download it to see what I mean: PSoC Creator 1.0.

Will post more updates on this later. For now, I leave you with a video which every one shows when they first use the PSoC 3 FirstTouch kit. Here is my version:

Awesome isn’t it? Stay tuned for more 🙂
