Kernel: NSA Code/Algorithm in Linux, Performance Superiority Over Windows, and Linux Foundation News

  • Linux 4.18 brings support for Vega M, Volta GV100 and, er, SPECK
    AFTER A WEEK'S DELAY, Linux kernel 4.18 stable has arrived. Announcing the release on Sunday, head of Linuxing Linus Torvalds said: "One week late(r) and here we are - 4.18 is out there.

One notable change is that there's been a lot of code ditched - around 100,000 lines of obsolete code has been slashed.

It dates back about 20 years, Andy Maltz, managing director of the Science and Technology Council at the Academy, told CIO Dive.

Debian GNU/Linux project to mark 25th birthday on Thursday

The Debian GNU/Linux project will turn 25 on Thursday, with the Linux distribution having made its debut on 16 August in 1993 under the leadership of the late Ian Murdock. In its original manifesto, Murdock stated: "Many distributions have started out as fairly good systems, but as time passes attention to maintaining the distribution becomes a secondary concern." Maintaining a Debian system was made simple after some developers created a package management system known as apt. Apt — and its derivatives like aptitude and synaptic — have served to make the task of updating a Debian system simple. With apt, the secondary concern that Murdock referred to was effectively taken care of. Incidentally, there are now about 29,000 packages available in Debian.
