Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) Hits the Streets on October 19, with GNOME 3.26
It's probably the last thing hardcore Ubuntu fans want to know, but it looks like the upcoming Ubuntu 17.10 operating system was codenamed Artful Aardvark, and a preliminary release schedule is already online.
It would be awkward for Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth to announce the codename of Ubuntu 17.10 considering what happened lately with the layoffs, etcetera, so some of our readers spotted the release schedule of the upcoming Ubuntu Linux release on the official wiki.

This year, the line is led by the Moto G5 Plus — and it might just be the best inexpensive Android phone you can buy.

Uber has high hopes for its open source data visualization software
Any time a representative of car sharing service Uber Technology Inc. shows up at an analytics conference, his or her session is always packed.
People crowd into the room for two reasons. First, Uber does a lot of interesting things with advanced analytics, and getting a peak under the hood at how it all works can inspire new projects at other enterprises.
veggies: Haskell code generation from scratch
I wish we had a formally verified compiler for Haskell, or at least for GHC’s intermediate language Core. Now formalizing that part of GHC itself seems to be far out of reach, with the many phases the code goes through (Core to STG to CMM to Assembly or LLVM) and optimizations happening at all of these phases and the many complicated details to the highly tuned GHC runtime (pointer tagging, support for concurrency and garbage collection).

Debian-Based Elive 2.9.0 Beta Finally Brings Persistence, Netsurf Web Browser
The development cycle of the Debian-based Elive 3.0 GNU/Linux distribution continues, and a new Beta milestone was launched today, April 21, 2017, for early adopters and public beta testers.

This year at the Percona Live open source database conference, I will present a talk on the latest replication features in MySQL 8.0.
It was a huge amount of work to get the MySQL Group Replication plugin out with MySQL 5.7.17. Group Replication is a new plugin that gives the user some nice replication properties by resorting to group communication and state machine replication. This makes the system able to protect data against split brain situations, enables fault-tolerance and high availability, and provides coordination between servers committing transactions that change the data.
In addition to Group Replication, the team has also invested quite a bit on core replication features. Some of these features were already released, and others will be released at some point in time in a MySQL Development Milestone Release (DMR).
The development team behind the ROSA GNU/Linux operating system announced today the release and immediate availability for download of the KDE and KDE Plasma flavors of ROSA Desktop Fresh R9.
ROSA Desktop Fresh R9 is the first release in more than two years to rebase the RPM-based operating system derived from Mandriva to a newer 2016.1 platform. It comes with both the KDE 4 and KDE Plasma 5 desktop environments, while the GNOME 3, MATE, and LXQt variants should be out in the coming months.
Welcome to Devuan Jessie 1.0 RC
Devuan GNU+Linux is a fork of Debian without systemd. The release 1.0 RC marks an important milestone towards the sustainability and the continuation of Devuan as a universal base distribution. Since the Exodus declaration in 2014, infrastructure has been put in place to support Devuan’s mission to offer users control over their system. Devuan Jessie provides continuity as a safe upgrade path from Debian 7 (Wheezy) and a flawless switch from Debian 8 (Jessie) that ensures the right to Init Freedom and avoids entanglement.
Devuan 1.0 Makes It To A Release Candidate: Debian Without Systemd
The first release candidate is now available for Devuan, the fork of Debian that rids the system of systemd.

Sorry if post this in a wrong place, but to be honest, windows subreddit...doesn't seem like a good place to ask technical questions
A while ago I came across an article explaining how to install linux programs using windows 10 bash shell. At first I shrugged, I'm a bit of a power user but I had no use for such feature.
Recently one crossed my mind. Would it be possible to use bash shell to install mozplugger and use it in conjunction with mpv (or any other 3rd party player really) and viewtube script with firefox developer edition?
I also read that handling(installing, updating) GPU drivers in linux is leaps and bounds better than in windows (no need to restart, no need to use DDU). Would it be possible to download thise drivers via bash shell and use in windows?
I like tinkering with stuff but I'm still a greenhorn for the most part, pls no bullysubmitted by /u/chowder-san
