Fedora 13

Filed under
Linux

After the release of Ubuntu 10.04, is now the turn of Fedora developers to make front-page news, with a new version of their distribution. Fedora 13 is recently launched that comes loaded with news features and is one of the most popular Linux distributions.

With regard to startup time, there is no real progress. There is even a phenomenon of regression on duration, which is now longer than before. Results obtained after a few stopwatches are as follows:

Description Fedora 11 Fedora 12 Fedora 13 Ubuntu 10.04
The grub up to the login screen 41.7 s 49 s 44.7 sec 19.6 s
The connection to the desktop screen 12.7 s 15.4 s 17.5 s 5.7 s
System shutdown 6 s 6 s 13.8 s 4.1 s

Improving boot time does not seem to be the priority of Fedora developers. Rather disappointing, especially after testing Ubuntu 10.04 which starts in about 20 seconds on the same machine.

The artwork

Fedora 13 artworks without doubt caught my attention the most. Especially the new Rocket Trails background screen, available by default.

NVIDIA vs. AMD OpenGL & Vulkan Benchmarks With Valve's Dota 2

Yesterday marked the public availability of Dota 2 with a Vulkan renderer after Valve had been showing it off for months. This is the second commercial Linux game (after The Talos Principle) to sport a Vulkan renderer and thus we were quite excited to see how this Dota 2 Vulkan DLC is performing for both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
