Linux companies never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity

It would be heartening to see James Whitehurst, the head of Red Hat Linux, the biggest commercial Linux outfit, and one that has seen billing go above the billion-dollar mark, deliver a speech at some official forum that underlined the fact that his company's product - and that of other commercial Linux companies - provides a guarantee against the insertion of backdoors.

Filed under

Linux 3.14-rc5

Filed under
Linux

Things were fairly calm, and fairly normal. Drivers account for just
under 60% of the patch (sound dominates due to a couple of patches
that are larger but trivial, but there's various misc oneliners all
over). The rest is mostly arch updates (mainly powerpc and xtensa),
and then there's a smattering of small stuff elsewhere.

Linux group could hasten 64-bit Android for ARM mobile devices

Filed under
Android
Linux

The release of 64-bit Android will depend on Google, whose current Android 4.4 version code-named KitKat is 32-bit. But 64-bit Android adoption will be swift if software, drivers and tools are ready ahead of the OS release, said George Grey, speaking Sunday at the Linaro Connect Asia 2014 developer conference in Macau.

"Clearly, our members want to work together on common Android software for ARMv8 so that when it is released by Google, we can accelerate deployment,” Grey said. One of Linaro’s priorities is making contributions for 64-bit Android, and the organization keeps Google updated on developments.

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
