There's a whole family of Red Hat Enterprise Linux variants, each with its own users. We'll break down the family tree and explain what's suited for dfiferent needs.
Why it's all happening for the Rust programming language, how it made it into the Linux kernel, and where it will go from here.
You might expect me, a data scientist, to tell you that data analysis and automation will inform your community decisions. It's actually the opposite. Use data analysis to With the ever-increasing pressure of being "data-driven," the treasure trove of information around open source communities can be a blessing and a curse. Using the methodology below, I will show you how to pick the needle out of the data haystack.
If you like the flavor of Cinnamon, good news: you'll get a new version. The first beta version of Mint 21.1 is now available for download, and the flagship Cinnamon desktop edition contains the biggest change, with a new version of the desktop.…
The Cinnamon project was formed as a reimplementation of GNOME 2 using the components of GNOME 3. Eventually, it diverged enough to be a true fork, and today the Cinnamon desktop uses GTK3 libraries and forked versions of key GNOME 3 applications to create a "classic" GNOME experience. One of the components contributing to the traditional GNOME experience is Nemo, a file manager based on the GNOME 2 version of Nautilus.

Additionally, the NAD9 Mini-PC includes 1x GbE LAN port, 4x displays supporting 4K@60Hz, 2x 2.5” SATA slots, etc. Similar to the Morefine […]
Computers are fancy filing cabinets, full of virtual folders and files waiting to be referenced, cross-referenced, edited, updated, saved, copied, moved, renamed, and organized. In this article, I'll take a look at a file manager for your Linux system.
Banishing memory safety bugs cuts critical vulnerabilities Google has been integrating code written in the Rust programming language into its Android operating system since 2019 and its efforts have paid off in the form of fewer vulnerabilities.…
Those of us who support open source project communities are often asked about usage metrics — a lot. The good news is that there are approximations and alternative metrics that can satisfy your thirst for knowledge about the software's usage, at least partially. This article explores these alternatives including their benefits and shortcomings.
Apache Hadoop is an open-source framework for processing and storing big data. In this tutorial, we will install the latest version of Apache Hadoop on an Ubuntu 22.04 server. Hadoop gets installed on a single node server and we create a Pseudo-Distributed Mode of Hadoop deployment.
The ARMedOne is a carrier board in E-ATX form-factor that can handle popular SO-DIMM computer modules like the Raspberry Pi CM3/CM4, Jetson Nano/Xavier/TX2 NX, NXP iMX8, etc. The product is expected to be released around mid-December 2022 on Kickstarter. The ARMedOne is a PC/Server mainboard capable of housing up to 28 computer modules from Raspberry […]
