There are new battles now, in which the stakes are just as high, maybe even higher, than they ever were.

Docker Swarms With New Application Virtualization Technology

Since Docker got its start 18 months ago, the Docker Engine has been the core of the project, providing a container approach for application virtualization. The Docker Engine is now being joined by the Docker Machine for increased container deployment portability, Docker Swarm for clustering and Docker Compose for application assembly services.

antiX 14.3

Upgraded bug-fix versions (PAE and non-PAE) of MX-14 are now available. This version has fixed some bugs found in MX-14.2 and Debian upstream. Major applications have been upgraded. We have added some new features, e.g. MX-Tools. MX-14.3 is based on Debian 'Wheezy' and therefore uses sysVinit. Now that Debian has frozen 'Jessie' and has moved to systemd, MX-14.3 offers a rock-solid systemd-free experience for those that would prefer to stick with sysVinit. MX-14 series will be supported until the end of life of Debian 'Wheezy'. Features and changes since MX-14.2: in order to fit on a CD, Java has been removed; upgraded to Linux kernel 3.14; new MX-findshares; new libparted2; galculator upgraded to version 2.1.3; Iceweasel upgraded to version 31.2.0esr.

For the other very significant number of users that the system cannot uniquely identify, it will try the old technique – shove a reCAPTCHA in there faces.
