Ubuntu Linux Has Been Bought Out by the Big “M”!

Humor

In an unprecedented move, Microsoft Corp. has acquired all rights to the Ubuntu Linux operating system (OS). The announcement came after numerous series of private negotiation meetings.

Several open source communities have already expressed stunned acceptance of the move that is sure to redefine the role of [Ubuntu] Linux in the consumer market. Or as some have indicated, remove it from the consumer arena altogether!

All parties have been unavailable since the initial announcement, however, the public news release indicated that all current Ubuntu LTS will be supported to end-of-line. Additionally, further development of the latest version of the popular operating system, Ubuntu 8.04 Beta has been temporarily suspended and no plans to continue the development of Ubuntu Linux were suggested.

Linux Kernel 4.14 Now Ready for Mass Deployments as First Point Release Debuts

Renowned Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman announced today the Linux 4.14.1 kernel, the first point release of the Linux 4.14 kernel series, which is the first to be supported for the next six years. The Linux 4.14.1 kernel is marked as "stable" on the kernel.org website, giving the green light to OS developers to add it to their repositories. Arch Linux developers have already pushed the Linux 4.14.1 kernel to the "Testing" repositories, for early adopters, so we may soon see a rebase of the operating system on Linux kernel 4.14, which brings major new features like support for AMD Secure Memory Encryption, Heterogeneous Memory Management to support upcoming GPUs, and bigger memory limits in x86 hardware.
