Robolinux is pleased and excited to announce its brand new Robolinux "Cinnamon Raptor" V8.1 LTS 2020 OS which is based on the rock solid Debian 8 stable source code sporting the 3.16 Linux kernel. It has far better graphics and audio quality, boots up and runs much faster than Debian 7 and is also compatible with newer hardware, drivers and most notably the Intel Haswell chipset.
Microsoft dangled a big juicy orange carrot in front of the noses of Windows XP users. That carrot was the "Insider Program" for Windows 10. Help test our software and you get a free upgrade. Except that you don't. Feel scammed? Try Linux.
Google and friends have announced the release of Kubernetes 1.0, which is great... if you know Kubernetes. If, like most folks, you don't, then CoreOS's new Tectonic program is here for you.
Open vSwitch (OVS) is the most popular open-source implementation of virtual switch on the Linux platform. As the today's data centers increasingly rely on the software-defined network (SDN) architecture, OVS is fastly adopted as the de-facto standard network element in data center's SDN deployments.
If asked, what would you think is the biggest challenge facing Linux mass adoption? My response to the backlash is to wonder if those crying out against Linux have even bothered to attempt an install of a recent release? Sure, I'll give them this... back in the day, Linux was not easy to install. In fact, there are still a select few distributions that seem to not quite understand the need for an easy-to-use GUI installer. But those tend to fall into the fringes. The mainstream Linux distributions offer an installation process that is as simple as it gets.
Today, we announce that the Linux 4.0 kernel series reached end of life, as Greg Kroah-Hartman has published details earlier about the release of the ninth maintenance version. At the moment of writing this article, numerous GNU/Linux distributions, including Fedora, are still using a kernel from the Linux 4.0 series, so they should upgrade their kernel packages to the Linux 4.1 LTS branch as soon as possible.
For years, meteorology students learned their craft at the tip of a colored pencil, laboriously contouring observed data by hand. While many forecasters still practice this art, computers have changed operations, research, and education. Open source software and open data are poised to bring more changes to the field.
Now he wishes there was an anti-snoop clause in the GPL
A respected security researcher has denied any involvement with Hacking Team after open-source code he wrote was found in smartphone spyware sold by the surveillance-ware maker.…
Kodi 15.0 codenamed Isengard has been released, a week after the last release candidate. Many new features are implemented, like adaptive seeking and a new chapter selector window.
I recently launched the Open Source Protocol (OS Protocol), a standard that can be used to link to where the code for a website is hosted. The protocol is fairly simple—all it involves is metatags, and most websites will only need two or three lines of code to be compliant.
Congatec has refreshed its Conga-IGX line of Mini-ITX boards with dual- and quad-core G-Series “Steppe Eagle” SoCs, featuring configurable TDPs from 5-15W. Congatec announced its Linux-friendly Conga-IGX Mini-ITX boards in 2013, providing a choice of two dual-core and one quad-core models from the original AMD G-Series SoC family. Now, the company has expanded the product […]
Dr. David A Bray, Eisenhower Fellow, discusses the role of the consumer in the Internet of Everything era.
There's a slow effort underway to allow virtually any part of the kernel to be
extracted into its own shared library, thus enabling users to use any
alternative subsystem they please. There's a long history of this, going back to
the debate between micro-kernels and monolithic kernels.
MontaVista debuted an IoT version of its Yocto-based Carrier Grade Linux OS, featuring annual major updates, modular structure, and QEMU and Docker support. MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade eXpress (CGX) builds upon and subtracts from its commercial-grade MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition (CGE) for networking and server applications. The CGX spinoff supports Internet of Things devices, […]
Desktop environments are supposed to be yesterday's technology, gradually being replaced by mobile devices. Yet someone apparently forgot to tell the developers of Linux desktops. At a time when desktops are supposed to be obsolete, Linux offers more alternatives than ever. Apparently, Linux users are not prepared to give up their workstations and laptops for tablets or phones.
Carrying out common daily tasks such as burning a DVD through the comfort of a user-friendly graphical interface is, of course, a good thing, but unfortunately things don't always work as expected. When this is the case, Linux users can revert to the good old terminal to get things done no matter what. On this quick tutorial, we will see how Linux users can utilize the terminal to burn audio CDs, data DVDs or ISO images on a disk.
One of the new security features in RHEL 6.7 is the ability to configure udev mounts as read-only.
"This gives customers a way to restrict their users' ability to write data to removable media, such as USB thumb drives,"
The application Cap One is unveiling with much fanfare isn’t something designed to help potential clients interact with the bank’s network, but is a developers’ tool. Called Hygieia, after the Greek goddess of health, it’s a dashboard that ties together data from a variety of tracking tools commonly used by software developers and presents them on a single screen.
In today's open source roundup: Trends in today's Linux desktop. Plus: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic now runs on Linux. And is Linux Mint 17.2 this year's best Linux desktop?
Adobe Flash has been both a gift and a curse wrapped up in the same package. It's a sluggish, often insecure and horribly bloated way to watch a video and play games on your computer. For years, Flash for Linux users was even worse: audio was out of sync with the video and you needed a special wrapper to play Flash videos on 64-bit Linux distributions. Even though things have gotten better in terms of compatibility, security still remains poor.
