Fedora 20 Alpha Has Been Delayed By One Week

Filed under

While Fedora 20 Alpha RC1 was made available yesterday, the final Fedora 20 Alpha release has been postponed by one week.

Traditionally delays in the Fedora release schedule have all been too common and it looks no different for Fedora 20. Due to some unresolved blocker bugs, it was decided today to postpone the Fedora 20 Alpha debut until the 24th of September.

Most of the bugs blocking Fedora 20 Alpha from shipping on time deal with the Anaconda installer and range from errors to problems with the boot-time LUKS pass-phrase. T

Developer survey shows Linux as more popular than Windows

Every year since 2010, Stack Overflow conducts a developer survey where they ask the developer community about everything from their favorite technologies to their job preferences. The results of the eighth annual survey, held in January 2018, are out and not surprisingly, this year marks the largest number of respondents ever. Over 100,000 developers took the 30-minute survey revealing how they learn new technologies, which tools they use to get their work done, and what they look for while hunting some job. Read more

Ubuntu Preps to Remove Qt 4 Support from the Archives, Target Ubuntu 19.04

With Qt 5 being largely adopted by Qt application developers and other major projects, such as the KDE Plasma desktop environment, the Qt 4 technologies are becoming obsolete, so more and more GNU/Linux distributions plan its complete removal from the software repositories. Debian Project's Qt/KDE teams are already preparing to remove Qt 4 support from the repositories of the upcoming Debian GNU/Linux 10 "Buster" operating system series mainly because it's getting harder and harder to maintain it now that it is no longer supported upstream, and may cause lots of problems system-wide.

GNU/Linux-powered Ataribox

  • Mysterious ‘Ataribox’ console finally gets a name and pre-order window
    Atari’s new entry into the console market now has an official name: The Atari VCS. The device was originally teased as the “Ataribox” last year during the E3 gaming convention: A new Linux-based system providing all your favorite Atari classics along with games from independent developers. Visually, it’s a throwback to the Atari 2600 console, only with a sleeker, modern look and updated hardware. Atari calls it a “gaming and entertainment platform.”
  • GDC 2018 | The Ataribox is real, and it's more computer than gaming console
    Atari COO Michael Arzt told Tom’s Hardware that the machine will indeed run Linux (or, at least, a derivative of Linux) with its own Atari-themed UI. The device can be controlled through either a classically-styled joystick or a more modern gamepad. Users can also connect a keyboard and mouse through either USB or Bluetooth.
  • The Ataribox is here at GDC, but it's also kind of not (hands-on)
    In fact, Atari execs told us there's no longer a set price or a promised release date for the console -- because many of its key pieces, like its AMD processor and customized Linux operating system, are still coming together.
