Linux

idreamoflinux.com: Some people argue that the market share of an OS is not very important and that we should not try to switch people over to GNU/Linux.

jjtcomputing.co.uk: I published a review on the new Slackware 13.0, which I really didn’t like for numerous reasons. However, I did a search for Slackware based distros, to see whether the base ideas could be built upon. Slackware itself is higly stable and customisable, but maybe another developer could mix these attributes with usability.

Kernel 3.18 development – the kernel column

Linus Torvalds announced Linux 3.17, the Shuffling Zombie Juror, saying, “The past week was fairly calm, and so I have no qualms about releasing 3.17 on the normal schedule”. The latest kernel includes a number of nice headline features, such as the new getrandom() system call and sealed files APIs that we covered in previous issues of LU&D. Linux 3.17 also includes support for less highlighted new features, such as new signature checking of kexec()’d kernel images and sparse files on Samba file systems (which is significant for those mounting Windows and Mac shares).

The Weston-IVI work dates back many months and today's revision to the shell marks its eighth public version as it still seeks to be accepted into mainline Weston. Read more

Details on GNOME's overall Python 3 porting work can be found via this Wiki page. Read more
