CentOS 6.5 Review – Red Hat for all

Filed under
Linux

Red Hat is a very big name in the open source community. Not only is it one of the most well-known companies that profit off of open source, but they’re also responsible for Fedora, one of the most popular home distros. Their dedication to open source and free software is admirable, and because of this, most of the packages that make up Red Hat Enterprise Linux are readily available. This is how CentOS is made, by taking these files and using them to create a distro that is near identical to RHEL.

  • Airbnb’s new open source library lets you design with React and render to Sketch
    Today, Airbnb’s design team open sourced its internal library for writing React components that easily render directly to Sketch. Instead of trying to get Sketch to export to code, the Airbnb team spent its time on the opposite — putting the paintbrush in the hands of the engineer.
  • [Older] Telecoms copying cloud providers make beeline for open source, say analysts
    The supersonic growth of Amazon Web Services and other cloud providers in the past few years owes much to open-source communities that fed them cutting-edge tech free-of-charge.

  • Libreboot Applies to Rejoin GNU
    Last week we reported that after reorganization, Libreboot was considering rejoining GNU and was seeking input from its community to determine the amount of support it had for such a move. From reading the comments posted both on our article on FOSS Force and on Libreboot’s website, it comes as no surprise that the project’s core members feel they have the necessary consesus to proceed. Last night, FOSS Force received an email — sent jointly to us and Phoronix — letting us know of the decision. Rather than repeat what’s already been written and said on the subject (for that, follow the first link above), we’re publishing a slightly edited version of the email, which will pretty much bring everyone up to date on the situation.

That's now changing with all GrSecurity users needing to be customers.
