F2FS Is Working Fine These Days With Fedora's Kernel
A Phoronix reader recently asked whether Fedora developers have yet enabled F2FS file-system support within their packaged kernel. While I didn't mention it before, yes, they ended up enabling support for the Flash-Friendly File-System.

While Linux distributions like Fedora and Mageia have adopted predictable/persistent network interface names, Ubuntu has not. However, that is looking to change and it might also be the case for upstream Debian.
Looking for an alternative to Windows? You may not think of your business as an enterprise shop, but you might be surprised at what enterprise Linux vendors have to offer SMBs.
The three major commercial Linux vendors—Red Hat, SUSE, and Canonical, the parent company of Ubuntu Linux—provide excellent products and services for all businesses, large, small, and in between. These are the top three commercial Linux vendors, and when you want to evaluate Linux as an option for your business you might as well start at the top.

I'm announcing the release of the 3.10.77 kernel.
All users of the 3.10 kernel series must upgrade.
The updated 3.10.y git tree can be found at:

Here's a Mother's Day Sunday release for you all, whether you're a
mother or not. Because hey, it's Sunday afternoon once again, and
that's just how my -rc releases roll.
Nothing particularly scary or worrisome going on, although there are
little fixes all over. Some of them are regressions from this merge
window, and some of them are older. And some of them are so old that I
almost thought "if it's been broken since 2011, and you only noticed
now, maybe it could have waited for the next merge window". You know
who you are (and others will too, if they read the commit messages -
your shame is out there).
Solution to fix broken HTML5 MP3 and M4A Firefox audio in Ubuntu, Ubuntu-Gnome, Ubuntu-Mate and Lubuntu.
Test sites: (1) https://html5test.com/
SYNAPTIC - add gstreamer1.0-libav or gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly
or Ubuntu Software Center - add Gstreamer extra plugins
BTW, Xubuntu and Kubuntu Firefox HTML5 audio already works fine and plays MP3 and M4A files (instead of downloading).
Other Ubuntu/Debian based distros can probably use a related gstreamer fix for Firefox/PaleMoon HTML5 audio.
gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly was enough to fix HTML5 Firefox audio in Linux Lite but gstreamer1.0-libav was not.submitted by Gooplusplus
