Hello MIUI Fans,


It's me teejay456, and welcome to our latest volume of MIUI Monthly Talk - May 2017. In the last volume, we had seen topics like Mi Pad 3, Android O, Dual Apps in MIUI & more which were written by our team member @ydd0ras. In this volume, we will be talking about the latest trends in the modern technology. Without further ado, let me highlight the topics for this month.


Topics For This Month

Talk of the Month: Google Fuchsia
Tech of the Month: Xiaomi Mi 6
MIUI's Ahead: Managing Your Personal Hotspot
Discussion of the Month: Windows v/s Linux

Talk of the Month: Google Fuchsia
Google_Fuchsia_OS_Logo.jpg

After Android and Chrome OS, Google is now working on its third OS called Fuchsia, which is an open source real-time OS. Google Fuchsia is not based on Linux Kernel, instead, its based on a new microkernel named Magenta. Fuchsia was first discovered in Github as a mysterious code post in August 2016. At that time it was only having command line interface. Now the Fuchsia has a got a new different UI in May 2017.


Let's have a look at the some of the images of the UI of Fuchsia:

Fuchsia1.jpg

The main section of Fuchsia shows a profile picture, and tapping on it will reveal some power controls. Above this section are recent apps, and below is a Google Now-style suggestion panel.


Fuchsia2.jpg

Google's own Android and Chrome OS is based on Linux Kernel and since Fuchsia is based on the magenta kernel which is developed by Google itself, Google might be dumping the Linux kernel also. Fuchsia is capable of running on universal devices, from embedded systems to smartphones, tablets and personal computers. The UI of the Fuchsia and the apps are written with Flutter SDK, using which we can create apps that can run on both Android and iOS. UI of the Fuchsia is called as Armadillo, which is based on material design and is inspired by the Google cards pattern. There are a bunch of cards as shown above and tapping on it opens the card in full screen, we can also drag the cards and edit it according to our wish.  The Fuchsia OS is still in the early stages and it needs a lot of work to be developed as a fully functional OS, which we might see by the year 2020. The question here is whether it will become successful as like android since android is one of the most popular OS that user love very much.


Here is a preview of the Fuchsia OS:

Google Fuchsia OS gets new UI, may replace Android in the future


So MIUIers, what do you think about Fuchsia. Will it be successful as Android? Please share your thoughts as replies to this thread.


Tech of the Month: Xiaomi Mi 6

Mi 6 Banner 2.jpg

Xiaomi's latest flagship Mi 6 was launched on April 11, 2017. Mi 6 is the result of 7 years of research & development of Mi.  Mi 6 is the first device to bring the Qualcomm's latest cutting edge processor Snapdragon 835 based on the 10nm FinFET technology, to China and along with 6GB RAM as standard across all the variants. Here are the main features of Mi 6.






There are mainly 3 editions of devices, ie, ceramic, silver, and glass. Starting at 2499 RMB, Mi 6 is definitely a king in the world of inexpensive flagships. It even ranked first in the Antutu top 10 lists published by Antutu with a whopping 184292 points, followed by Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Mi 6 is also strong and durable like the Mi MIX. During the recent durability test conducted by youtube channel, JerryRigEverything Mi 6 has passed durability test with flying colors.  What is your view on this flagship device of Mi? Lets us know your opinions. Reply to this thread below with your views and opinions.



Read more details about Mi 6 here:




MIUI's Ahead: Manage Your Devices In Personal Hotspot

Today, we are going to talk about a feature that's exclusively available to MIUI only when compared to stock android. And that's none other than managing your connected devices in the personal hotspot. For that go to Settings>>Personal hotspot>>

ManagePersonalHotspot1.png

With this feature, you can see, how many devices are currently connected to your personal hotspot, manage them etc. This is one of the coolest features in MIUI. We can see the device names that are currently connected to our personal hotspot, can also limit the number of devices that can be connected to your hotspot and even block devices from connecting to your personal hotspot. The connected devices list also shows the Wi-Fi Mac address of the device. So if there are two devices with the same name, we can differentiate by looking for each device's Mac address.


1.jpg


We can either limit no of connected devices from 1 to 6, where after that limit, next device won't be able to connect to our hotspot. We can also set no of connected devices as unlimited where any number of devices can be connected to our hotspot. The benefit of this feature is that, if you are in a crowded area and need to share your internet with your friend and needs to connect to your hotspot quickly without entering the hotspot password set by you, you can limit no of connected devices as 1 and then remove the wifi password and ask him to join fastly. He can then directly access your hotspot without entering the password. Your hotspot will be an open hotspot now and if another user tries to connect to this hotspot, he won't be able to do this as its connected devices are limited to 1, which is being used by your friend.


03.jpg


We can also disconnect a device which is currently connected to your hotspot and add it to blocklist too. This can be done by tapping on the device name in the connected devices list and confirming it by pressing OK. Then it goes to the blocklist. A user can't connect again if its device is added into blocklist. This is done by mac address filtering. We can also remove a device from blocklist also. All this is done in the Manage connected device section in Personal Hotspot. By this way, we can manage the devices that are connected to our personal hotspot. So do you think this feature is an awesome one? Reply below to this thread.


Discussion of the Month: Windows v/s Linux

Banner.png

  • Recently the world was critically affected by the WannaCry ransomware attack. This is an ongoing cyberattack of the WannaCry (or WannaCrypt, WanaCrypt0r 2.0, Wanna Decryptor) ransomware computer worm targeting the Microsoft Windows operating system. The attack started on Friday, 12 May 2017, infecting more than 230,000 computers in 150 countries, with the software demanding ransom payments in the cryptocurrency bitcoin in 28 languages. As mentioned, a vulnerability in the Windows PC caused this, and this leads many users to think about whether to change from Windows to other alternatives such as Linux or Mac. Since mac machines are extremely costly, for a normal user it won't be affordable. So the next choice would be Linux.


  • Most PC manufactures now use Windows OS on their machines because of the fact that Windows is a popular Operating system to all users, due to its simplicity and ease of use. So the number of PC's that came with Linux preinstalled is less or almost nill. Users like Windows more than Linux. But due to the recent cyber attack, the security in Windows operating system is really doubtful. Since losing one's important files is not an easy thing. Attackers mostly use Windows as their attacking medium, because of its popularity.



  • Linux, on the other hand, is more secure than Windows and is less vulnerable to any attacks. Since Linux is a free and open source operating system, more users are there to fix any issues in the code of the OS and thereby getting faster fixes to any vulnerability if found. Many of the available software programs, utilities, and games available on Linux are the free and open source. Even complex applications such as GIMP, Open Office, and Star Office are available for free.  When compared to Windows, Linux is notoriously reliable and secure. It has a strong focus on process management, system security, and uptime.



  • GNU/Linux operating systems have a steeper learning curve for the average user. They frequently require a deeper understanding of the underlying system to perform day-to-day functions. Additionally, troubleshooting technical issues can be a more intimidating and complicated process than on Windows. However, some distributions such as Ubuntu and Linux Mint are designed specifically to ease the transition from Windows to a Linux environment.


So having said about Windows & Linux briefly, which one do you think, is better, Windows or Linux? Let us know your opinion by voting in the poll given below.




Special thanks to @soumya_2002 for providing me full support and an opportunity to write my first thread in this initiative, and also for my team for making this initiative possible and kindly helping me doing this!. Also, I would like to thank @candicesu for her kind supervision and guidance.
