These are some of the best distributions out there, in my opinion. For better or for worse, the Linux world is full of distributions and there are passionate people who like ‘their’ distributions over others. Let us know which distribution you prefer for your own use case and why.
Security vendor Secdo has added Linux to the list of operating systems supported by its Pre-emptive Incident Response product. It has provided a short list of supported versions of Linux including RHEL, Ubuntu and CentOS. While it doesn’t name SUSE Enterprise Server (SES) it does say that it is also supporting other versions of Linux.
Friend of mine just asked this question to me and I'm at a loss of how to help.
When mounting drives you can mount by /dev/sdb1 etc or by uuid is their any other way? Both of those can change from time to time. Uuid changes when formating Drives and I can't have that. I'm setting up iscsi target server the soul propose is to add hard drive capacity to a server that's running out of space. I can get it to set up but when the client server mounts the drive and formats it the uuid changessubmitted by /u/Handy_Crabs
Feral Interactive Releasing HITMAN For Linux This Month
Civilization VI and DiRT Rally were recent AAA Linux game announcements and now HITMAN is the latest game receiving a confirmed Linux game port.
Feral Interactive will be releasing HITMAN for Linux next week, 16 February. Feral just announced the game port on their site.
HITMAN for Linux officially announced, port by Feral Interactive and arriving this month
Feral Interactive have officially announced their next Linux port and it's going to be 'HITMAN' [Steam]. Another awesome game for our platform. This is the complete first season too, so we get plenty of content.
They plan to release Hitman for Linux on Thursday 16th of February, so be sure mark your calendars.
Threaded OpenGL in Mesa will not help Feral's Linux ports and probably others too
Just a note to not get overly excited about threaded OpenGL in Mesa. While it's true it could help a bunch of games, there's also games it likely won't help or even make worse. Feral Interactive's ports already do it, and I'm sure others do too.
To be clear, I'm not saying it can't help games that already have some form of it in future, and some it could easily help right now.

Hitman – The Complete First Season is releasing on Linux on February 16
The port was handled by notorious Linux experts Feral Interactive, who have a great track record with this stuff, so expect it to run well. There isn’t any Vulkan support, if you were hoping for that, however.
Linaro released AOSP TV for the HiKey, enabling development for Android TV using 96Boards SBCs without requiring Google Services and verification.
The Linaro Digital Home Group (LHG) has released a sample build of the Android TV version of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) distribution for Linaro’s 96Boards Consumer Edition spec. The firmware is initially available on the 2GB RAM version of the LeMaker-built, community-backed HiKey SBC, the official Android reference board for 96Boards.
Running Linux on Tiny Peripherals
It seems like every day new IoT devices with a very limited amount of RAM and storage space are appearing in homes, gardens, businesses, labs, and elsewhere. This includes things like heart rate monitors, thermometers, home automation components, and other devices that only need to perform small, limited tasks. About a year ago, Marcel Holtmann from Intel began looking at the challenge of shrinking Linux to run on these types of small, IoT devices as a hobby project, and at LinuxCon Europe, he presented what he’s learned about how to run Linux on tiny peripherals.
