One fateful Wednesday in 2010, the fortunes of gamers that preferred Linux over Windows changed forever when the good folks at Wolfire Games launched the inaugural Humble Indie Bundle.

Android Lollipop 5.0 was supposed to change everything. It was supposed to inspire a revolution, a better—and better looking—Android. Instead it was a little disappointing, starting with a slow rollout, and followed by a motley parade of bugs.

The highly anticipated LG G2 Android 5.0 Lollipop update has finally started rolling out to more and more owners this month. Today we’ve learned that ahead of the LG G3 Android 5.0 update, those with a Verizon LG G2 can expect the update to arrive starting today.

The modern Geary email client that is currently used in several well-known distributions, has been updated on March 30 to version 0.10.0, a quite small release, but an important milestone in the development cycle towards the final 1.0.0 release of the software.
Conventional wisdom holds that containers are fast on their way to remaking everything from application deployment to the design of ultralean Linux distributions. That last part raises a question, though: Could container technologies like Docker be used to solve Linux's long-standing conundrums with package management? Might containers provide a path away from dependency hell and competing (and incompatible) package standards?
In the yes camp: The folks at CoreOS, creators of the Linux distribution that revolves entirely around containers, not packages, as its basic unit of modularity.
Some of the big additions set to debut in Docker 1.6 will be a native Windows client. Building Docker images will also get a boost with the ability to building images from an image ID as well as having the ability to impose constraints (memory etc) on images.
