Ten New Linux Distributions Inspired by News Stories

I've run across ten new Linux distributions inspired by current news stories. Some, of course, are better than others and a few just have no practical use or purpose whatsoever but still are worth a mention. These ten distributions are in no particular order of my preference or relevance. Maybe you've run across some of them too in your Internet travels.

1. Lohanix - This cute little gem is still not mature but it sure is fun to use. It has all the latest gadgetry and accessories to keep you occupied for minutes at a time. The best part of this distro is that it works well in or out of rehab facilities.

2. BPix - BPix doesn't work well under pressure nor is it good at real 'in-depth' work but its slick new interface is perfect for those offshore workers. This one should really clean up near the US coastline.

5. Onebuttonix - This one has taken its simplistic design features from another operating system with its oversimplified, "our users are too stupid to use a real computer" interface.

7. SocialMediaix - "Who do you want to bore today?"

Ubuntu Leftovers

  • This App Lets You Reset Ubuntu to Default
  • New Ubuntu Kernel Update Patches a Single Vulnerability Affecting All Versions
    A few hours ago, Canonical published several Ubuntu security notices to inform users about the availability of new Linux kernel versions for all supported Ubuntu releases. The latest update is small but important, and appears to fix a recent security issue that could allow a local attacker to crash the vulnerable system or run programs as an administrator (root). Affecting Ubuntu releases include Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 16.10.
  • Linux 4.11 brings improvements for Intel Atom PCs (Bay Trail and Cherry Trail)
    Since Ubuntu 17.10 and other operating systems set to launch later this year will probably use the new kernel, that means there’s a better chance that you’ll be able to use the official install images to get Ubuntu (or other Linux-based operating systems) up and running with minimal fuss. Until then, Morrison has a workaround.

The Linux Foundation -- which has trained and certified more developers on open source software than any organization in the world -- will provide the instruction. More than a dozen leading technology, education and systems integration organizations around the world will participate in the cloud certification program. Companies involved in the initial training and certification rollout include Engineer Better, IBM, Pivotal, Resilient Scale, SAP, Stark and Wayne, and Swisscom. Read more
