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

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.

Microsoft

She was on her computer at home doing something or the other when suddenly things went bad for her. The menu bar and the task bar disappeared, including the “Start” button and she couldn’t close or change anything on her screen. In a panic, she called friends to try to see if she could get guidance to fix it. One friend told her that the same thing had happened to her and it turned out to be a virus. Olivia was told to turn her computer off immediately and reinstall Windows. That was the only way to proceed.

All of her family pictures and all of her files…gone. She and her friend reinstalled Windows and spent the next two days getting her computer back into shape.

When I was giving the keyboard shortcut portion of the class, I noticed Olivia holding her hands over her mouth as her eyes grew wide. I thought she was going to cry. It turns out that Olivia had accidentally hit the F11 key while she was typing. She had no controls, no cues or hints as to how to get her computer screen back to normal. She had no idea she had accidentally hit the F11 key or that hitting it again would return things to normal. When she discovered how easy this was to fix she was both relieved and angry. She even left her seat to come forward and give me a hug as she recounted the story.
