Criticism of criticism of Linux

3+1 rants

• Preston St. Pierre opines on Linux.com that X/OS is an undistinguished Red Hat clone, where "undistinguished" is rather disparaging, à la "why do we need it?"

I allowed my self to comment — it's the first anonymous comment, if it's still there. At least until CentOS 5.1 releases (which won't happen before RHEL 5.1 releases plus a few weeks maybe), I can see some advantages of using X/OS 5.0 for a RHEL clone.

My problem is not "which RHEL 5 clone to use", but rather "why is RHEL 5 so castrated"? It's not about the hibernation problem I had and solved (at least for me), and that might be even better solved in RHEL 5.1 and its clones.

It's about its inability to detect the proper burning speeds for my "super-multi" DVD, which makes me to need to use GnomeBaker to burn DVDs and K3b to burn CDs!

COM and Pico-ITX dev kit run Linux on dual-core Cortex-A7

iWave has launched a rugged, SODIMM-style COM and Pico-ITX form factor carrier board that run Linux on the Renesas dual-core, Cortex-A7 RZ/G1E SoC. In January, iWave launched the iW-RainboW-G20M-Qseven computer-on-module, built around the dual-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A15 based Renesas RZ/G1M and RZ/G1N SoCs. Now the company has followed up with a 67.6 x 37mm, SODIMM form factor “iW-RainboW-G22M-SM” COM that runs Linux 3.10.31 on the dual-core Cortex-A7 based RZ/G1E SoC from the same RZ/G series SoCs.
