Hardware

In the wake of Intel's announcement late last week of its dual-core "Cedar Trail" N2600 and N2800 Atom processors (pictured), a quartet of Cedar Trail netbooks have popped up on the web, with several models available for pre-sale. The formal launches will await next week's CES show in Las Vegas.

Ubuntu provides installation images for the x86, ARM and Power PC architectures, allowing the distribution to run on a wide variety of hardware. The most recent release of Ubuntu, version 15.04, includes a fairly short list of changes compared to last year's Ubuntu 14.10, however some of the changes are significant. Some small changes include an upgrade of the kernel to Linux 3.19 and placing application menus inside the application window by default. A potentially larger change is the switch from Canonical's Upstart init software to systemd. Read more
