In the enterprise Linux space, few if any Linux distribution are as widely deployed as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and none make as much revenue. RHEL 7.2 is the latest incremental update of Red Hat's flagship Linux platform and is the second update of RHEL this calendar year.
Frank, a longstanding member of my team, was unhappy and disengaged. He was visibly upset, avoided speaking up in meetings, and had declining productivity. It was obvious to everyone who worked with him that there was a problem—we had to do something to get Frank back on track, or his future on the team was uncertain. (And just to clarify: Frank is not a real person, but an amalgamation of several).
Analysts on Wall Street have placed a short term price target of $85.058 on shares of Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT). This is according to 17 analysts polled by Zacks Research. The brokerage firm with the most lofty expectation has a $92 target. One the other end, the analyst with the most conservative objective sees the stock heading to $72.
The new Radeon Software Crimson Driver from AMD has been released for the Linux platform as well, but it looks like the Linux users will have to wait a little bit more for the new UI or other features.
Less than two weeks ago, on Thursday November 12 I was presenting Jolla at the great start-up conference SLUSH 2015, telling about Jolla’s ups and downs, focusing on death valleys that we start-ups very often go through. I told the audience that so far Jolla has had two serious death valleys, one in the very beginning in 2013 when we lost our whole technology platform, the basis for our first smartphone. The second death valley was later in 2014 when the Jolla smartphone was not selling as anticipated and its technology was aging.
FLOCK 2016 planning is in progress! FLOCK is the annual conference for Fedora contributors to come together, discuss new ideas, work to make those ideas a reality, and continue to promote the foundations of the Fedora Community: Freedom, Friends, Features, and First.
This comics explains the birth of the project Tunir. When I started working in the Fedora Cloud SIG, I volunteered myself to help with the testing of the Cloud images. We have very clear guidelines about what to test, and how to test.
There is a very useful tool for finding and merging shared permanent storage, and its name is fdupes. There was a terrible occurrence in the software after version 1.51, however. They removed the -L argument because too many people were complaining about lost data. It sounds like user error to me, and so I continue to use this one. I have to build from source, since the newer versions do not have the -L option.
Do you remember my example of a bad stub design in DNF ? At that time I didn’t have a good example of why this is a bad design and what are the consequences of it. Today I have!
Some Android devices running older versions of the software can be remotely reset by Google if a court demands access to it, according to a document prepared by the New York District Attorney’s Office.
The document, so far unconfirmed by Google but widely reported and apparently prepared by the New York District Attorney's Office, claims that almost all elderly versions of Android are open to remote unlocking.
Google today launched version 2.0 of its Android Studio integrated development environment (IDE) for writing apps for its mobile operating system.
Android Studio, which is based on IntelliJ, launched back in 2013 and came out of beta a year ago. It includes everything a developer needs to build an app, including a code editor, code analysis tools, emulators for all of Google’s Android platforms, and more.
The new version is now available as a preview in the Canary release channel of Android Studio.
Google officially has rolled out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but for now, it only landed on select Android One smartphones.
The Jide Remix Mini packs an Android-based computer inside a device a bit larger than a deck of cards (or, for Canadians, about the size of 1.5 hockey pucks). It comes with a 64-bit, 4-Core Cortex processor, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB of SSD storage.
The device sports two USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a headphone port, and a microSD slot for extra storage. Jide sells the Remix mini for $69.99, and includes an HDMI cable (about 20" long) and a power adapter in the box.
The first Android Wear watches made their debuts last June, and since then, a dozen different models have been released. But going into the holiday shopping season, there are six Android Wear devices worth watching. The following slideshow offers a look at those six Android Wear watches and how they stack up against the Apple Watch.
Google Inc. has an open-source software hit on its hands.
Google has capitalized on the growing popularity of so-called containers, which are standardized building blocks of code that easily can be moved around the Internet and across a broad range of devices. In June 2014, as containers were taking off in the world of software development, Google open sourced Kubernetes, its technology for managing clusters of containers. Since then, Google has captured about 80% of the market for cluster managers, according to consulting firm Cloud Technology Partners Inc.
As I review one Linux distribution or another, I find myself uttering phrases like "This is pretty good! Almost makes me want to switch my system to this," over and over again. So many distributions of Linux are truly fantastic – but usually with a caveat. Something that stops me from making them my primary system.
In an effort to kickstart its mobile payments solution, Android Pay, Google this morning announced a holiday campaign that will see the tech giant donating up to a million dollars toward special education projects in partnership with nonprofit DonorsChoose.org. This is the first time Google has ever worked with an NGO on a mobile payments campaign, the company notes.
FarmOS is a Drupal-based software project aimed at easing the day-to-day management of a farm. It allows different roles to be assigned to managers, workers, and viewers. Managers can monitor how things are going with access to the whole system, workers can use the record-keeping tools, and viewers have read-only access to, for example, certify the farm's records.
For my day job, I occasionally have to demonstrate concepts in a Windows environment. The most time-consuming part of the process is almost always the installation. Don't get me wrong; Linux takes a long time to install, but in order to set up a multi-system lab of Windows computers, it can take days!
After years of development and a few delays, the open source Drupal 8 content management system (CMS) is now generally and freely available. Among the most popular and widely deployed CMS technologies in use today, Drupal counts whitehouse.gov and the Federal Communications Commission among its notable users.
The Linux Foundation regularly awards scholarships as part of its Linux Training Scholarship Program. In the five years that the Linux Foundation has hosted this program, it has awarded a total of 34 scholarships totaling more than $100,000 in free training to students and professionals. In conjunction with this program, we are featuring recent scholarship recipients in the hope that their stories will inspire others.
The new Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is not a huge departure from the Mi Pad before it. You still get a 7.9-inch device with more than respectable specifications for the price. MIUI 7 is still behind the glass, based on Android 5.x Lollipop. An additional version with Windows 10 was also announced, with more details to follow and a later release date than the Android version.
