Fedora Is Looking For Your Feedback On A New Logo

  • Fedora Is Looking For Your Feedback On A New Logo

    Longtime Red Hat / Fedora designer Máirín Duffy has shared some proposals for a new Fedora logo and the lengths they are going to in coming up with this new logo/marks.

    Máirín Duffy and the Fedora Design Team have been working on their next iteration of the Fedora logo. Fedora has gone through several logo/branding re-designs over its history since 2003 while now for 2019 they are working on a new iteration that's more evolutionary than revolutionary.

  • Help Pick a New Logo for Fedora

    The Fedora “Infinity” logo has been a staple part of the Linux landscape for as long as I’ve been using it — but that could be about to change.

    Fedora plans to update its famous logo and word mark with a fresher, more modern version that’s easier for designers to work with.

    To help decide, the distro is asking the wider Linux community for its feedback on “two different directions” they’ve come up with.

Compact Jetson TX2 computer has eight USB 3.0 ports

Aaeon’s rugged “Boxer-8150AI” computer runs Linux on a Jetson TX2 module and features 2x HDMI ports and 8x USB 3.0 ports for hooking up cameras for on-site edge AI analytics. Like the quad-GbE Boxer-8120AI, the Boxer-8150AI uses an Nvidia Jetson TX2 module and its CUDA-enabled AI libraries to analyze visual information from connected cameras. In this case, the cameras don’t run over Ethernet, but USB 3.0. Like the Boxer-8120AI and Aaeon’s stripped down Boxer-8110AI spinoff, this is a fanless, rugged, Linux-driven device with a compact form factor, in this case measuring 153 x 101 x 45mm. Read more

Android Low-Memory Killer--In or Out?

One of the jobs of the Linux kernel—and all operating system kernels—is to manage the resources available to the system. When those resources get used up, what should it do? If the resource is RAM, there's not much choice. It's not feasible to take over the behavior of any piece of user software, understand what that software does, and make it more memory-efficient. Instead, the kernel has very little choice but to try to identify the software that is most responsible for using up the system's RAM and kill that process. The official kernel does this with its OOM (out-of-memory) killer. But, Linux descendants like Android want a little more—they want to perform a similar form of garbage collection, but while the system is still fully responsive. They want a low-memory killer that doesn't wait until the last possible moment to terminate an app. The unspoken assumption is that phone apps are not so likely to run crucial systems like heart-lung machines or nuclear fusion reactors, so one running process (more or less) doesn't really matter on an Android machine.
