Advantech’s COM-like “MIO-3260? Pico-ITX SBC runs Linux on a Bay Trail SoC and offers a PCIe/mSATA slot, MI/O expansion, and optional -40 to 85°C operation. Like Advantech’s MIO-2263, which was announced in May, the MIO-3260 is a 100 x 72mm Pico-ITX board that supports a quad-core Intel Celeron or dual-core Intel Atom from the 22nm Bay Trail generation. Like the earlier, Atom Cedarview generation MIO-2262, the MIO-3260 lacks real-world ports, thereby acting as much like a computer-on-module as a single board computer.
These days, I rarely give unsolicited technical advice. However, if people ask me how to explore and install Linux, I urge them to be systematic. To the average computer user, installing a Linux operating system is an unfamiliar procedure -- to say nothing of an exercise in unprecedented diversity.
Scientific Linux 6.7 i386/x86_64. Existing 6x systems should run 'yum clean expire-cache'. Major differences from Scientific Linux 6.6: OpenAFS has been updated to the latest bug-fix release (1.6.14); epel-release-6-8 - this RPM has been updated to the latest upstream release; glusterfs-server - built from the TUV provided sources for the glusterfs client. Possible upgrade problems: sssd-common is no longer multilib compatible. If you are using sssd-common.i686 on x86_64 systems you will be unable to update. Please remove the i686 rpm on your x86_64 systems to resolve this issue.

Joel Leclerc, an independent Ubuntu developer, posted an interesting article on his blog about the proposal of a non-windowing display server.
I have to admit, I've fallen in love with Trello as a productivity tool. If you like keeping lists as a way to organize your work, it's a very good tool. For me, it serves two primary purposes: keeping a GTD framework, and managing certain projects with a kanban-like schedule. read more
We've recently written how Canonical is making Unity 8 act and looks like a proper Linux desktop, and developers have been quick to show us the progress.
The Internet's foundational documents are called "requests for comments" or "RFCs." Published by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the organization whose stated goal is "to make the Internet work better," RFCs define and explain the operational standards by which our worldwide network of networks functions. In other words, they specify the rules everyone should follow when building and implementing new Internet technologies. Engineers working on the Internet discuss potential RFCs, debate their merits, then post their decisions online for anyone to read.
Ubuntu Touch is actually a Linux distribution and it's easy to forget that sometimes. This means that most of the stuff you can do in the OS can be done from the terminal, including dialing a number, for example.
The buffer overflow has long been a feature of the computer security landscape. In fact the first self-propagating Internet worm—1988's Morris Worm—used a buffer overflow in the Unix finger daemon to spread from machine to machine. Twenty-seven years later, buffer overflows remain a source of problems...

Kids don't want to code. They want to solve problems us oldies can't perceive. “Grandpa is getting pretty old. Out there all alone on that farm, he has no one to look in on him, just to see if he’s ok. He’ll use the landline, but he’s beyond of the range of mobile, and he’s never been really great with computers. No Skype or emails. Grandpa does have internet. So I built this for him."
I think it's time to clarify the matter of "too many Linux distributions" once and for all. As a Linux veteran like myself, it is getting annoying to see all sorts of comments on the Internet from people complaining that there are way too many distributions of Linux.
The usual suspects were in attendance this year, plus some I had never seen before. Conspicuously missing were my friends at ThinkPenguin. They were more than generous in giving us perks for our last fund raiser and I was a bit bummed I wouldn’t have a chance to see them in person again this year. The Ubuntu table was busy as always and the focus, at least for those visiting the exhibit, was the Ubuntu phone. No matter who I heard introducing themselves, the main topic or questions asked was about the Ubuntu phone. Many of us might have thought that the interest in the Ubuntu slabs was exaggerated or astroturfed, but from what I could tell the Ubuntu Phone most certainly is on the minds of many Ubuntu users.
The Fedora Project, through Peter Robinson, announced the release of the Server edition of the Fedora 23 Alpha operating system for ARM 64-bit (AArch64) and POWER (PPC64 and PPC64le) hardware architectures.
