Review: Atomix Linux 3.2

Reviews

After several years' work, a team of young Linux experts from Serbia has released Atomix Linux 3.2 to the public. Considering the long development period -- more than three years -- my expectations were fairly high, but Atomix met my expectations.

Atomix Linux is a derivative of Fedora Core Linux. When I've tested Fedora Core 4, applications such as OpenOffice.org, Gaim, Evolution, and ImageMagick have crashed a few times. During the two months of testing Atomix I haven't had any programs crash or freeze, which I found impressive. It appears as if the Atomix developers have focused on making sure that all applications function reliably.

Installation

Since Atomix is a Fedora derivative, it's no surprise that it uses the Anaconda GUI-based installer. Anaconda is simple and accessible, even for users who are inexperienced. Choose the packages carefully, however. For some reason, the Atomix team did not include some popular applications with the set of programs that are installed automatically.

Oracle Releases Node.js Tools

Back at its OpenWorld event in 2014, Oracle announced it was working on a Node.js driver for its database products.

The driver is now available from GitHub, and includes tools for working with JavaScript objects and arrays, and for translating between Oracle and JavaScript data types. It’s designed to handle transactions, and to work with Oracle’s built-in scaling tools. This includes the ability to quickly end transactions in the event of server failures – allowing Node.js applications to quickly failover to another database, without losing user data. Read more
