That's what is being worked on by Linaro, an engineering group supported by a range of ARM-based chip designers, server OEMs and Linux operating system custodians, all of which share an interest in broadening the range of open-source software for the ARM platform.
By the time the first 64-bit ARM-based SoCs become generally available for use in production servers later this year, Linaro is confident that certain core enterprise software packages used for serving websites, data analytics and databases will be running acceptably on the 64-bit ARM-based architecture.
These enterprise software packages include the LAMP stack - an acronym for software widely used for websites, commonly referring to a Linux OS, Apache web server, MySQL database and PHP scripts - as well as the NoSQL database MongoDB and the distributed storage and processing framework Hadoop, together with other web-serving technologies such as memcached and HAProxy.

Unikernels promise some interesting benefits. The Ubuntu 14.04 amd64-disk1.img cloud image is 243 MB unconfigured, while the unikernel ended up at just 5.2 MB (running the queue service). Ubuntu runs a large amount of C code in security-critical places, while the unikernel is almost entirely type-safe OCaml. And besides, trying new things is fun.
I've spent the last couple of months working an internship for The Linux Foundation, doing research on new developments and adoption trends in the open source industry. If you have spent any amount of time reading about open source over the last year, you have probably heard about Docker; a lot of people are talking about it these days and the impact it's going to have on virtualization and DevOps.
With new technologies like this, it can often be challenging to filter out the hype and understand the practical implications. Additionally, complex jargon often makes subjects like Linux containers confusing to the layman and limits discussion to those who are deeply knowledgeable on the subject. With this article, I will step back for a moment from the discussion of what Docker can do to focus on how it is changing the Linux landscape.
Starting this Friday, Aug. 1, the more than 300,000 students who registered for the Linux Foundation's free Introduction to Linux course on edX will be able to log in and start learning Linux. It is the first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Linux, opening training access to anyone around the world with an Internet connection. It's also part of a larger revolution in education being led by edX, the online learning platform founded by Harvard and MIT.
If you live in the UK, you'll soon be able to fill out government paperwork with your freedoms intact. The British government announced last week that Open Document Format (ODF), HTML, and PDF will be the official file formats used by all government agencies.
I think most newbies like me settle for NetworkManager (hurrah for easy-to-use defaults), but I've taken some interest in ConnMan as of late. I'm curious if any of the denizens of r/linux use this (a search turns up only three posts, so it seems a niche thing).
This post is aimed (hopefully) at gathering thoughts, reflections, etc. and maybe even tips from the especially charitable. Those who use it, what do you think of ConnMan? [The ArchWiki has a lovely newbie-oriented tutorial, but the package for Fedora (20) doesn't reflect the usage shown there. So before I sink any more time into deciphering the mysterious usage of "connmand" as opposed to the expected connmanctl, I was hoping to gauge the general opinion to determine if it's worth my time.]
(Unfortunately, Google and DDG don't seem to understand that when I search of ConnMan documentation, I am NOT looking for packages; nor am I mispelling "commands." This has been a little frustrating for me too.)submitted by j39m

Reddit: Hello Linux users! I have never used Linux and want to know everything that makes Linux good, great, or better.
So I have seen many posts on Operating Systems and it usually ends with Linux being something really complex and cool looking. This makes me curious and I want to hear it from Linux users, what makes Linux the better OS to choose.
I am planning on using a USB stick to use Linux on Windows. Any tips on this?
Thanks for reading.submitted by CockyChach
