We're now in the stretch run for the OpenStack Kilo platform release.
Those with a bit of humor will love the demo NVIDIA recently used for showing off their Nouveau-based open-source graphics driver stack on the Tegra K1 SoC.
Last month at FOSDEM was a presentation on the Nouveau Tegra K1 driver stack by Alexandre Courbot of NVIDIA. In there NVIDIA talked about their great experience working on this open-source driver and engagement with the Nouveau community, which will continue for future Tegra SoCs. That aforelinked article covered all of the important details of that presentation.
Suppose you’re a developer and want to experiment with Drupal 7.7 or WordPress. Maybe you're a K-12 teacher or university professor and want to teach your students Moodle administration or how to create some network-attached storage. You could download a tarball from Drupal.com or WordPress.org and configure on your own desktop or laptop, but then you would also need to configure Apache and MySQL too. All of these operations take effort and know-how that you may or may not have time for.

The Asus ZenWatch is a surprise. It is comfortable, looks great and works well. The heart rate monitor is well suited to infrequent checks, and the screen is bright and can be clearly read in sunlight.
Having to charge it at least every two days is a drag, but almost every other smartwatch short of the Pebble suffers from the same drawback.
The always-on ambient display mode using the OLED screen makes it a very good watch for actually telling the time, which others have neglected.
Overall, the ZenWatch is easily one of the best Android Wear watches available and a solid contender for the incoming Apple Watch.
The announcement of LibreOffice Online this week came as welcome news to many people concerned about the paucity of online options for those who want software freedom with their online document solutions. But can open source SaaS succeed?
The open source community needs a truly open alternative to current mainstream online document collaboration solutions, all of which are compromised by lock-in. LibreOffice Online will offer the full flexibility to deploy in-house or hosted cloud instances while using true open standards for its documents.
Bazel, the tool that Google uses to build the majority of its software has been partially open sourced. According to Google, Bazel is aimed to build “code quickly and reliably” and is “critical to Google’s ability to continue to scale its software development practices as the company grows.”
After announcing the Ubuntu 15.04 Final Beta and Kubuntu 15.04 Beta 2, it is now time to take a look at the second and last Beta release of the upcoming Ubuntu Kylin 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) operating system that has been designed especially for the Chinese Ubuntu Linux community.
Today’s announcement for Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) Final Beta also mentioned the immediate availability for download and testing of Kubuntu 15.04 Beta 2, an official Ubuntu flavor built around the modern and attractive KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment, as well as the KDE Applications project.
Pillars of Eternity is the brand new RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive. It’s expensive compared to a lot of our games, so here’s our look at it.
If that looks pretty weak to you, it is. This is more a one-person variation on the original Pong than a clever imitation at the console. And given that it has an upright orientation over a horizontal one, it has more of a feel of Arkanoid than Pong proper.
An early preview release of Git 2.4 is now available but it doesn't add too many features as this cycle has organically found itself doing a ton of polishing and bug fixing.
Berry is a new image viewer written in Qt, licensed under GPLv3, with a modern, simple interface and basic features.
When it comes to text-based communication tools, we’re experiencing a kind of Cambrian Explosion. Emoji has long gone mainstream, leading to a wave of niche Ikea emoticons and Saturday Night Live pictograms. Even this week’s New Yorker is a riff on emoji.
This is the Android-x86 boot menu. You have the option to boot into a live desktop or straight to the installer. The latter option seems to be the most appropriate thing to do here.
Remix' Big 11.6" Android Tablet With A Full Keyboard And Multi-Window Enabled OS Reaches Its $100K Kickstarter Goal In A Day
This isn't your typical Kickstarter. Jeremy Chau, one of the company's co-founders, states it clearly from the get-go in the campaign's introductory video. Remix isn't a bunch of over-promised under-delivered hogwash that may get stuck for years in the development and manufacturing process like 90% of Kickstarter products — it is a real tablet, it was demo'ed at CES, and it's already being sold in China.
As I noted at the beginning of this year, open source has won, even if it's not finished. That's easy to show at the top end, since Linux currently runs 485 of the top 500 supercomputers in the world. But at the other end of the spectrum, data has been harder to come by. That makes a new post on Linux.com reporting on the embedded sector particularly welcome. Here's the key finding.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge flagship phones are finally here. They are beautiful phones (unlike the uninspired Galaxy S5). The S6 Edge, with its unique curved screen, is especially eye-catching.
But the S6 and S6 Edge have more than just good looks. Both pack powerful processors, gorgeous 5.1-inch displays, and the best smartphone cameras on the market.
Throw in a new mobile payment system that lets you use your S6 anywhere you can use a standard credit card, and the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are the new Android smartphone kings.
Two years after the unveiling of its predecessor, the Dell M3800 Developers Edition aluminum-backed laptop for programmers is now here, and while it has improved in a number of interesting ways that include a new 4K ultra HD screen, it’s still a laptop that doesn’t come with the light, airy body of other brand models. Then again, this isn’t a gaming laptop, it’s built with programming in mind.
Red Hat garnered much of the press today with the release of their fourth quarter 2015 earnings report last night. Red Hat stock prices rose today after the announcement on this a down day on Wall Street and continued to gain a bit in after hours trading. The other big winner today was GNOME 3.16, whose headlines began yesterday with its release announcement. Just what is causing all the buzz?
