  • Piracy helping Windows gain market share over Linux
  • Docker Datacenter Suite Advances Production Container Technology

    Docker isn't just for hobbyist developers and early adopters anymore. Docker Inc. takes the wraps off a new commercial platform that enables containers as a service (CaaS).
    Docker Inc., the lead commercial sponsor behind the open-source Docker container technology, is expanding its commercially supported product lineup Feb. 23 with the official launch of the Docker Datacenter platform. DDC builds on Docker Inc.'s existing services, including the Docker Universal Control Plane, which was first publicly announced as a beta last November.

  • ​Docker improves container security and management

    We love Docker. This container technology makes it possible to run four-to-six times the number of server applications as you can with Virtual Machines (VM) on the same hardware. There are only two little problems: Security and management.

  • openSUSE T-Shirts for Leap Day

    To celebrate Leap Day, openSUSE will ship you a Leap 42 T-Shirt when you submit a proposal for this year’s openSUSE Conference by Leap Day (Feb. 29, 2016).

  • Spin your own Debian

    Today, we’re going to look at creating a custom Debian ISO using the Debian Live Systems project. With the project and website, you can create your own custom version of the distro to deploy as you wish around an office or in your own home. The benefit of creating your own spin is the ability to include specific packages that are relevant to your needs, have it work on specific architectures, and generally make it much more suited to your needs.

  • Tails 2.0.1 is out
  • Bite-size i.MX7 module sips power, ships with Linux

    Toradex launched a pair of Colibri COMs built around NXP’s low-power, Cortex-A7- and -M4-based i.MX 7 Solo and Dual SoCs, featuring -20 to 85°C operation.

    As promised last September, Toradex has shipped one of the first computer-on-modules based on NXP’s i.MX7 system-on-chips. It does not appear to be the first, as CompuLab promised to ship its CL-SOM-iMX7 COM in Jan. 2016. Toradex can, however, claim to have the smallest i.MX7 module to date — its 67.6 x 36.7mm dimensions beat out the 68 x 42mm CompuLab module.

  • Backgrounds / Wallpapers for Tizen Smartphones Samsung Z1 / Z3 / TM1 – Vol 2

    Over the last year we have created some stunning wallpapers / backgrounds for Tizen devices Samsung Gear S / S2 / Neo / Galaxy / Z1 / Z3 and TM1. Now we have some more specially for the Samsung Z1, Z3, and TM1 Tizen Smartphones.

    This month there are more of an abstract style, but if you would like anything different then please let us know in the comments section. Instructions on how you can actually set them as your background are at the bottom of the page.

  • OpenShift Commons Gathering event preview
    We're just two months out from the OpenShift Commons Gathering coming up on November 7, 2016 in Seattle, Washington, co-located with KubeCon and CloudNativeCon. OpenShift Origin is a distribution of Kubernetes optimized for continuous application development and multi-tenant deployment. Origin adds developer and operations-centric tools on top of Kubernetes to enable rapid application development, easy deployment and scaling, and long-term lifecycle maintenance for small and large teams. And we're excited to say, the 1.3 GA release of OpenShift Origin, which includes Kubernetes 1.3, is out the door! Hear more about the release from Lead Architect for OpenShift Origin, Clayton Coleman.

Security News

  • Report: Linux security must be upgraded to protect future tech
    The summit was used to expose a number of flaws in Linux's design that make it increasingly unsuitable to power modern devices. Linux is the operating system that runs most of the modern world. It is behind everything from web servers and supercomputers to mobile phones. Increasingly, it's also being used to run connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, including products like cars and intelligent robots.
  • security things in Linux v4.6
    Hector Marco-Gisbert removed a long-standing limitation to mmap ASLR on 32-bit x86, where setting an unlimited stack (e.g. “ulimit -s unlimited“) would turn off mmap ASLR (which provided a way to bypass ASLR when executing setuid processes). Given that ASLR entropy can now be controlled directly (see the v4.5 post), and that the cases where this created an actual problem are very rare, means that if a system sees collisions between unlimited stack and mmap ASLR, they can just adjust the 32-bit ASLR entropy instead.
