Some Fresh Radeon EXA/GLAMOR 2D Acceleration Benchmarks
It's been a while since last publishing any 2D-focused benchmarks since overall the state of Linux 2D acceleration architectures like GLAMOR and Intel's SNA have become good enough that it's no longer a frequent concern by desktop users. However, as some recently have been inquiring about updated numbers, I ran some fresh Linux 2D benchmarks on different Radeon GPUs using the open-source driver stack.
Open Source Effort Targets Faster Nets, Storage
Networking is becoming a bottleneck as enterprises store, move and sift through vast quantities of structured and unstructured data from a growing list of sources. In an effort to accelerate adoption of network virtualization, a new open source effort seeks to provide a high-performance input/output services framework for developing the next generation of virtualized network and storage software.

Raspberry Pi is the new target to trigger Tizen adoption rate
It’s needless to say that with a huge number of Raspberry Pi users worldwide, the community keeps growing by the minute and the list of ROMS available for this dirt cheap PC on a card is endless. With the hardware readily available everywhere, Samsung sees the Raspberry Pi (Pi 2 to be precise) as the right platform to grab hold of developers and build their interest towards Tizen.
