Why OpenStack is the wrong cloud for Red Hat to be building its future on
Just because one can make money from OpenStack doesn't mean one should. Red Hat, on its recent earnings call, gladly assumed the title of "Red Hat of OpenStack," meaning the "vendor that does certification and confidently allow[s] both hardware and software vendors to participate in the ecosystem." In a similar vein, I've called OpenStack Red Hat's "Linux moment," a chance to productize the growing cloud movement.
I'm announcing the release of the 4.10.7 kernel.

11 reasons why Android is winning
You know the smartphone has supplanted every other consumer technology when all anyone really wants in a car now is a “smartphone on wheels.” In a world where most smartphone users have Android-based models, Google is aiming to reach the next billion users coming online — with Android as the nexus of activity.
Whether it’s as a Google Home oracle/assistant, Android Auto smart car integration, TensorFlow machine learning or DayDream virtual reality, the Internet search behemoth now aims to become the search engine for your life. Add to that a serious focus on developer tooling and solutions such as Firebase and Android Studio 2.3, and it’s clear that Google is ramping its current ubiquity up to a whole new level. Here are 11 reasons why Android isn’t just for phones anymore.
Qt Creator 4.3 Beta released
Qt Quick Designer now integrates a QML code editor. This allows you to use views like the Properties editor and the Navigator also for text based editing. When you use the split view, you directly see the effects of what you are doing. The graphical editor got support for adding items and tab bar to stacked containers like StackedLayout and SwipeView, a tool bar with common actions, and support for HiDPI displays.

For Linux GPU driver junkies, here are some fresh NVIDIA vs. RadeonSI test results using Linux 4.11 and Mesa 17.1-dev as of this week.
Not much information to share until the embargo expires, but here are some interesting NVIDIA vs. RadeonSI results on Ubuntu Linux.
I've been sent in details about 'Lil Tanks' [Steam, Official Site], which is an action-packed side-scroller with some really great retro visuals.
I've been told it will release on Tuesday, April 4th and it will have day-1 Linux support at release. It will release with a 20% off sale too for a whole week.
We certainly aren't short on action platformers, but Nongünz [Official Site] looks like it could easily stand out with the unique visual style.
I absolutely love the visuals. I think it looks fantastic mixing black and white with a gentle touch of sepia for things like fire. Not many games go for a black and white style, so it's interesting to see more developers try it out.
