extremetech.com: It's been quite a while since the last update to PCLinuxOS back in 2007. While Ubuntu and other distros come out every 6 months, PCLinuxOS is considered a "rolling release distribution" that gets updated regularly as new stuff appears in the PCLinuxOS repository.

Leaked videos, screenshots reveal an HTC One running Android Lollipop

No, you won’t get this gift in time for Christmas, but perhaps seeing an HTC One running Lollipop may make the wait slightly less painful. A batch of videos and screenshots show HTC’s flagship with the newest build of Android, though of course it’s merged with the Sense 6.0 user interface (the HTC One currently runs Sense 5.0).

That last pair consists of the two major contenders for the technology Linux could use for live kernel patches. Now a winner is in, and it amounts to all of the above.
