Today's tiptoe through the headlines found an Antergos and another MakuluLinux 5.0 review. Phoronix.com is reporting on newly approved features for upcoming Fedora 21.
He has worked on the Linux kernel and userland for more than 20 years, in areas including KVM, the kernel-based virtual machine, high speed networking, Linux/ia64, Linux/m68k, the system libraries (glibc) and high-end NUMA systems.
It was a bit slow today, but have no fear, I was able to find several interesting stories. First up is Ubuntu and OMG!Ubuntu! reports on the new Ubuntu theme. Katherine Noyes puts her ear to the tracks for this week's bug reports. And finally, Bryan Lunduke says "Linux is like a cheese quesadilla."
Disclaimer: No puppies were harmed while writing this article. FatDogArm, a relatively new distro was released recently for ARM based computers. It is a small operating system targeted for desktop-style operations. FatDogArm achieved a new milestone with its first beta release. The distribution is quite small in size (less than 300MB). The logic behind the FatDog name is explained on the FatDog64′s site
As for the feelings of the Linux community in general, the consensus is that it felt like GNOME was somehow being slighted or ignored. Remember early on, Ubuntu was a GNOME-centric experience. While today, Ubuntu is most definitely Unity-centric instead.

Red Hat's application certification program is nominally about ensuring that third-party applications and app platforms run reliably on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
The newest candidate for certification, though, isn't an application per se. Rather, it's an application technology that stormed the Linux world and quickly became a major part of its landscape: containerization, which allows apps to be packaged to run almost anywhere with minimal muss or fuss.
Crytek has confirmed that CryEngine now has "full native Linux support." A demo of the engine running on the open source OS will be presented at Game Developers Conference next week.
The ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T is a Haswell-based Intel ultrabook that I have found to be quite interesting and will be carrying out a large number of Linux tests (and Windows 8.1 vs. Linux benchmarks) from this laptop that sports Intel Iris Graphics 5100, dual SSDs, and other impressive features.
