The network operating system will be based on Linux, with that solution that can offer a variety of features such as switching, routing, load balancing, firewall, and distributed denial-of-service. In addition, network virtualization, software-defined network controller, and other related features will be made available. Atto Research, the specialist in software-defined networking, will take the job of development work.
One of the key moments in the history of free software was the rise of companies based around open source. After the first wave of startups based around offering distros and support for them - Red Hat being perhaps the most famous and successful example - there followed a second wave of companies offering open source versions of key enterprise software, many of them described in the early posts of this blog.
Android Wear is rapidly establishing itself as the de facto software platform for smartwatches, and will go on to dominate Apple's recently announced Apple Watch, analysts predict.
I am having trouble building an embedded auto installing image of Ubuntu for HP thin clients. But I only need Mozilla to auto launch opening one url and for all other action to be locked down, i.e. closing or opening any other app will required an admin passwd. I also need to shutdown all ports except 8443. I am using the terminal as a kiosk. I have an image built but having difficulty with the Mozilla auto-launch and LinPE auto installing.submitted by iwant2fork
September 12, 2014. KDE today announces the release of KDE Frameworks 5.2.0.
KDE Frameworks are 60 addon libraries to Qt which provide a wide variety of commonly needed functionality in mature, peer reviewed and well tested libraries with friendly licensing terms. For an introduction see the Frameworks 5.0 release announcement.
With the Intel Core i7 5960X Haswell-E is an eight-core processor with Hyper Threading to yield sixteen logical threads, we're seeing how well this extreme Haswell processor really scales with modern open-source workloads as we benchmark the i7-5960X under Ubuntu Linux and see how the benchmarks scale with varying core counts.
François Dupoux said that a new release of his popular SystemRescueCd Linux-based operating system for rescue and recovery tasks has been made available, and the latest version now ready for download is 4.3.1.
The Ubuntu community has been asking this question ever since the Meizu, Bq, and Canonical partnership was announced. The developers didn't want to provide a clear answer to the launch question and only the launch window was provided, the fall of 2014.
The Ubuntu developers are working to promote an RTM (release to manufacturing) version of Ubuntu Touch and they are almost ready, but it looks like they still have a couple of months, at least, to polish it up. The operating system still needs a few more features, but above all it needs stability.
While the Maxwell-based GTX 900 series graphics cards are rumored to be launching in the weeks ahead, the GTX 750 Maxwell graphics cards on the open-source "Nouveau" Linux driver still need some more work before they'll play nicely when not using NVIDIA's proprietary Linux driver.
For NVIDIA Maxwell support within the open-source driver there's basic support within recent Linux kernel releases, the user-space code for Maxwell has landed within Nouveau's NVC0 Gallium3D driver, and there's xf86-video-nouveau support using GLAMOR. With the GLAMOR-required acceleration for Maxwell, the Nouveau DDX depends upon the built-in GLAMOR of X.Org Server 1.16 and newer (rather than the earlier independent GLAMOR acceleration library). With Ubuntu 14.10 now having X.Org Server 1.16 and is running the Linux 3.16 kernel (though with my tests for this Maxwell trial I already switched to Linux 3.17 Git), I pulled in the latest Mesa 10.4-devel packages and other updated components via the Oibaf PPA On Ubuntu 14.10.
