Benchmarks Of 54 Different Intel/AMD Linux Systems
This week in celebrating 200,000 benchmark results in our LinuxBenchmarking.com test lab, I ran another large comparison against the latest spectrum of hardware/software in the automated performance test lab.
Snappy Open House Is Your Chance to Get Familiar with Ubuntu Snappy
Nicholas Skaggs had the great pleasure of announcing a couple of days ago yet another innovation from Canonical, Snappy Open House, a new way for Ubuntu developers, contributors, and members of the community to get familiar with the Snappy technology created by Canonical for its Ubuntu Linux operating system.

Linux 4.2 Bringing Support For ARCv2, HS38 CPU Cores
The ARC architecture updates for the Linux 4.2 kernel have landed.
With the ARC architecture updates in Linux 4.2 comes support for HS38 cores, which in turn are based on the Synopsys next-gen ISA known as ARCv2. The ARCv2 ISA is faster and more feature-rich than their original instruction set architecture. The HS38 cores have a 10-stage pipeline core with MMU support, SMP up to four cores, and other new features. The HS38 processor is still 32-bit and is "optimized for high-performance embedded applications running Linux."
