Introduction: -
I have been user of Linux for over 8 years now the first Linux distribution i used was RedHat Linux 5.2 and since then have tried a number of different Linux distribution , but primarily i have sticked with Red Hat(Fedora) and now Ubuntu for serious work . Now Linux distribution over the years have matured a lot on desktop front right from early days when there wasn't even one descent package for Desktop work to present day case when Dell is selling computers with Ubuntu Linux ,Things have surely changed a lot . It's the emergence of distributions like Ubuntu,Freespire(Linspire),PCLinuxOS and other Desktop Linux distro's that have catalyzed the adoption(or at least emergence) of Desktop Linux concept .

PCLinuxOS began as a fork of Mandriva Linux (Mandrake linux) four years back and still has a number of features of Mandriva Linux. It uses RPM package format and PCLinuxOS is considered one of the more user friendly desktop linux , now personally i have never used PCLinuxOS there was a certain buzz surrounding the release of PCLinuxOS hence i decided to try it out here is my review : -

Linux 4.2 Bringing Support For ARCv2, HS38 CPU Cores

The ARC architecture updates for the Linux 4.2 kernel have landed.

The ARCv2 ISA is faster and more feature-rich than their original instruction set architecture. The HS38 cores have a 10-stage pipeline core with MMU support, SMP up to four cores, and other new features. The HS38 processor is still 32-bit and is "optimized for high-performance embedded applications running Linux." Read more Also: Radeon & AMDGPU DRM Fixes Queue Up For Linux 4.2

In my day job, I’m the engineering manager for Collabora, an open source software consultancy which is fairly similar—basically making sure that all the engineers are happy and helping unblock any problems that come along.
