PCLinuxOS 2010 Beta 1 released

Filed under
PCLOS

The PCLinuxOS developers have announced the release of the first beta for the 2010 edition of their Linux distribution. The distribution's goal is to be "radically simple" and easy to use. The latest development release includes a number of changes and updates.

The first beta release of PCLinuxOS-2010 features the 2.6.32.8 Linux kernel and version 4.4.1 of the KDE Software Compilation (KDE SC). In addition to a reworked menu system with less sub-categories, the developers note that the mylivecd iso creation software has received a major rewrite to better detect devices and that the LiveCD now boots 50% faster than previous releases.

Android Auto is great, but automakers are holding it back

At the LA Auto Show this week, I spent time with a recent pre-release build of Android Auto using a Nexus 5 connected to a 2015 Hyundai Sonata. It's mostly the same as the version we were shown at Google I/O in June, apart from some minor refinements. For instance, the green, circular "a" logo that appears on the phone when it's jacked into the car now reads "Android Auto," and voice-based searches no longer cause a full-screen "listening" window to pop up — you just get a little pulsing "g" in the corner. The underlying concept, though, is unchanged: it's Material Design-infused Android for your dashboard, boiled down to the basics with copious use of speech output and voice recognition so that driver distraction is kept to a bare minimum. You're also locked out of using your actual phone when Android Auto is in use, another stab at limiting distraction by keeping eyes off screens and on the road. Read more

Not just token: Red Hat's Women in Open Source Awards

DeLisa Alexander would like to make one thing clear about Red Hat's Women in Open Source Awards (WIOSA): They're not just a token gesture towards diversity. Instead, she describes them as one step in a larger, more varied strategy to increase women's participation in open source. "It's one key," says Alexander, executive vice-president and chief people officer at Red Hat. "But it's an important part of the puzzle to help tech and open source attract more talent." According to Alexander, the idea was first generated several years ago, but the company "waited until we had a larger sense of the puzzle." Read more
