Fedora Core 10 might make me a believer again

Linux

For a long time I was a wearer of the Fedora. Starting with Red Hat 4.2 all the way to 8 and then adopting Fedora when Red Hat when corporate, I was a proud user of all things Fedora. But then something happened and I lost my taste for the research triangle and we parted ways. I found Ubuntu which marked the end of an era.

And I tried to pick up where me and Fedora left off. I gave 7, 8, and 9 a try only to become disappointed on a number of levels. The yum system seemed to spend more time broken than not. The GNOME desktop was little more than a joke, and usb was impossible. I had pretty much written off ever using Fedora again. That is until 10.

Securing the container processes is all about shrinking the attack surface on the host OS and more specifically on the host kernel. Read more

Google to bring official Android support to the Raspberry Pi 3

The Raspberry Pi 3 is not hurting for operating system choices. The tiny ARM computer is supported by several Linux distributions and even has a version of Windows 10 IoT core available. Now, it looks like the Pi is about to get official support for one of the most popular operating systems out there: Android. In Google's Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository, a new device tree recently popped up for the Raspberry Pi 3. Raspberry Pis, if you're not aware, are cheap, credit card-sized, single board ARM computers with a focus on education and open source software. Hardware hackers and DIYers love the Pi due to its open nature, small size, and plethora of ports and software. Read more
