  • Meizu MX5 Pro Ubuntu edition hands on

    Majority of the phones at Mobile World Congress 2016 used Android and a few had Windows mobile 10. But if you want to be really different, Ubuntu was showing its highest end Meizu MX5 Pro Ubuntu phone.

    The phone physically looks just like the Meizu MX5 Pro which was powered with FlyMe – Android-based operating system. Once you turn it on, you see a clear difference. It took us only seconds to find apps, launch a browser and open up Fudzilla.com.

  • New Music App to Bring Spotify Streaming Support to Ubuntu Phones and Tablets

    David Planella, the Ubuntu Community Team Manager, published recently a summary report of the work done by the Ubuntu community during the last two weeks.

  • Canonical Could Ease NFV Adoption with New Lab

    As this year began, we spotted a lot of action from telecom players and the open source community surrounding Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technology. For example, Red Hat and NEC Corporation said that they formed a partnership to develop NFV features in the OpenStack cloud computing platform, with the goal of delivering carrier-grade solutions based on Red Hat's OpenStack build.

    Now, Canonical is starting a new interoperability lab to allow telecom players to validate the capabilities of virtual network function appliances ahead of deployments in production environments. The lab could help streamline the adoption of virtual network function tech in the telecom industry.

  • MWC: Is there room for Ubuntu OS?

    It's really a two horse race on the mobile front, as Android and iOS duke it out in most markets around the world.

    It's such a duopoly that Windows Phone and BlackBerry's marketshares are measured in single digits in many regions.

    Still, that hasn't stopped more entrants from joining the fray, such as Canonical's Ubuntu OS.

  • A talk about the future of Ubuntu with Mark Shuttleworth

    Hello all,

    this week I joined the Mobile World Congress thanks to Canonical support which invited me. The week itself it has been awesome, but the most awesome thing happened today: thanks to Chimera Revo’s support (a big hug goes to Simone and Luca who supported and endured me all week long) I had a talk with Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical, about Ubuntu and its future.

Red Hat News

  • Red Hat's Results Underscore its Growing Focus on OpenStack
    Late last week, Red Hat reported earnings per share of 55 cents on revenue of $600 million, beating estimates of 54 cents and $590 million, respectively. One thing that went unsaid across much of the coverage is that the company is in the midst of a major shift in its strategy toward OpenStack-based cloud computing, and it looks like service revenues and positive momentum from that effort are starting to arrive. "Our growth was driven in part by expanding our footprint with customers as we closed a record number of deals over $1 million, up approximately 60 percent year-over-year," Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst said during his company's earnings call. Seven of the top 30 deals had OpenStack in there, nine had RHEV," Whitehurst said. "We had three OpenStack deals alone that were over $1 million. So I think we're seeing really, really, really good traction there."

    Open-source technology firm Red Hat Inc, which hit the $2-billion revenue milestone two quarters ago, is looking to achieve $2.4 billion in FY 2017 and $5 billion in the next five years.

pump.io Servers Adoption

  • Adopt a pump.io server
    As most of you know, E14N is no longer my main job, and I've been putting my personal time, energy, and money into keeping the pump network up and running. I haven't always done a good job, and some of the nodes have just fallen off the network. I'd like to ask people in the community to start taking over the maintenance and upkeep of these servers.
  • Prodromou: Adopt a pump.io server
    There are currently around 25 servers in the federated network initially started by Prodromou, which does not count other pump.io instances. He notes that one important exception is the identi.ca site, which is significantly larger than the rest, and which he would like to find a trusted non-profit organization to maintain.

Intel Core i7 6800K Benchmarks On Ubuntu + Linux 4.8

While the Core i7 6800K has been available for a few months now, there hadn't been any review on it since Intel hadn't sent out any Broadwell-E samples for Linux testing this time around. However, I did end up finally buying a Core i7 6800K now that the Turbo Boost Max 3.0 support is finally coming together (at first, Intel PR said it wouldn't even be supported on Linux) so that I can run some benchmarks there plus some other interesting items on the horizon for benchmarking. Here are some benchmarks of the i7-6800K from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with the Linux 4.8 kernel. Read more
