If LinuxWorld Expo has become the place for the suits, and OSCON has become a developer's haven, then where does the average Linux user get to go?

In the Midwest, one event that seems to be answering this need is the Ohio LinuxFest--an event that promises to meet the technical and social needs of the Linux user.

The Ohio LinuxFest, scheduled for Saturday, October 1, is now in its third year of operation. Its very venue, the Greater Columbus Convention Center, reflects just how much it has grown from its 2003 origins in a few rooms at Ohio State University.

According to one of the event organizers, the Ohio LinuxFest was initially planned to be a social and technical gathering for Ohio-based Linux User Groups (LUGs). Greg Boehnlein described the initial event as fulfilling a need to get LUGs to reach out beyond their local focus and "getting together as one big group."

  • Open education: How students save money by creating open textbooks
    Most people consider a college education the key to future success, but for many students, the cost is insurmountable. The growing open educational resource (OER) movement is attempting to address this problem by providing a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, while at the same time empowering students and educators in innovative ways. One of the leaders in this movement is Robin DeRosa, a professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

Linux 4.10 To Linux 4.15 Kernel Benchmarks

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git. With this Broadwell-era Core i7 5600U laptop with 8GB RAM, HD Graphics, and 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD with Ubuntu 17.10 x86_64, the Linux 4.10 through 4.15 Git mainline kernels were benchmarked. Each one was tested "out of the box" and the kernel builds were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel archive. Read more
