  • AMD could be back in the CPU performance game with Zen

    Thanks to wccftech (and our IRC for the link) I have learnt today that AMD's new processor design named Zen is shaping up very nicely. Apparently they are due out in October of this year (not confirmed), so hopefully not too long to find out for ourselves. I've no doubt Phoronix will have tests up shortly after they are released so we can see their Linux performance.

  • Linux 4.5 officially released, with powerplay support under amdgpu

    Of course the update that is most interesting to us, is the addition of experimental support for Powerplay in the amdgpu driver. Powerplay is the brand name for the power management technologies found in AMD CPUs and APUs, which requires the dreaded and deprecated Catalyst driver to work properly.

  • Linux 4.5 Offloads Copying, Improves IPv6 Networking

    The Linux 4.5 kernel was officially released by Linus Torvalds late on Sunday March 13, providing the second major kernel milestone update so far in 2016, following Linux 4.4 which debutedon January 10.

    Among the big additions in Linux 4.5 is support for the copy_file_range() system call for offloading copies between regular files. The Linux kernel code commit for the new system was authored by Red Hat's Zach Brown and according to the git entrythe new system call, "..gives an interface to underlying layers of the storage stack which can copy without reading and writing all the data."

  • Linus Torvalds wavers, pauses … then gives the world Linux 4.5

    This release nearly didn't make it: Linux lord Linus Torvalds writes that he came close to ordering an eighth release candidate, as “We did have one nasty regression that got fixed yesterday [Sunday - Ed], and the networking pull early in the week was larger than I would have wished for.”

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
