On July 27, Arne Exton, the creator of several Linux kernel-based operating systems, had the pleasure of informing us about the immediate availability for download of a new build of his Exton|OS Light distribution.
The FreeBSD project made much progress during this past quarter (Q2'2015) on many fronts from working on FreeBSD 10.2 to landing new work in FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT for improving their Linux binary emulation layer.

The rate of development for the Linux kernel is unprecedented, with a new major release approximately every two to three months. Each release offers several new features and improvements that a lot of people could take advantage of to make their computing experience faster, more efficient, or better in other ways.
During the release cycle of the GNOME 3.18 desktop environment, the GNOME developers updated the GNOME Initial Setup components, which is displayed only once when you first install the GNOME desktop on your GNU/Linux distribution.
Sonos makes a great product, but they have never been supported under Linux. Windows, Mac, or Android only. I finally bought a cheap tablet, and have been using that as a "remote control" for the Sonos system. Frustrating!
Recently, I tried running their app with WINE on a new Mint 17.2 64-bit Cinnamon install. No joy. I tried "playonlinux", no joy.
Tonight, a friend sent me this in an email: "Would be interested if this would work. Kodi (http://kodi.tv/) is a shiny cross platform media browser/player; back in the day it used to be XBMC. It also supports a bunch of plugins, including one for Sonos (http://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:Sonos). Might be a way to get Sonos under Linux, and Kodi itself might be a good interface for interacting with media on your NAS in general. "
Here is the link to the Linux wiki notes. I installed it, added the Sonos add-on, and in a few minutes, was finally listening to my music without having to use a tablet as a remote control (or rebooting into Windows).
The interface is fairly primitive, but I'm thinking I can live with it. Way better than the alternatives, anyway!submitted by __tmk__
With the Linux 4.2 kernel settling down nicely and AMD developers having already sent in a few round of fixes for their new AMDGPU kernel DRM driver, I've started testing out this new kernel driver -- plus the new xf86-video-amdgpu DDX and the associated new Mesa/LibDRM code -- that is providing the open-source accelerated graphics support for Tonga and all new/future GPUs like Carrizo and Fiji.
