A German startup called BeagleCore is spinning a computer-on-module version of BeagleBoard.org’s BeagleBone Black single board computer on Kickstarter. Packages start at 39 Euros ($44) for the first 500 units shipping in Feb. 2016, or 49 Euros ($55) for the second shipment in April. With a baseboard, it costs 99 Euros ($111), also with April 2016 shipment. The BeagleCore and Starter-Kit support Linux flavors including Debian, Ubuntu, Android, and Cloud9 IDE on Node.js with BoneScript library.
Any Linux operating system is incomplete without a download manager. From many years, Linux based distros are using wget as default download manager. Its pretty little application which works fine from command line, if you need to install anything, download any stuff, you need to run shell scripts etc, everything uses wget on some level to complete tasks.
For those using perf for Linux profiling with performance counters, the Linux 4.2 kernel will bring many improvements to benefit Intel customers.
If you have any questions regarding new features and apps that are present, absent, or in the works for the Ubuntu Touch platform, you need to know that there is already a comprehensive wish list out there that takes care of everything.
If you are planning to purchase SSDs for Linux, keep an eye on the drives that are blacklisted by the Linux Kernel. Also pay heed to what Sukar suggests, “...be careful, even when you don’t enable the TRIM explicitly, at least since Ubuntu 14.04 the explicit FSTRIM runs in a cron once per week on all partitions – the freeze of your storage for a couple of seconds will be your smallest problem."
If you pay attention to these points, your data may just stay in the solid state.
Releases of the Fedora operating system, being the mostly regular six-monthly events that they are, do not usually find themselves worthy of note -- your average run-of-the-mill Fedora release can usually be summed up as: "Everything you had six months ago, only slightly better."
With Fedora 22, though, changes arrived thick and fast. The release's desktop environment got a new, flatter look; the package manager of choice changed; GCC was updated to the 5 series; and the next generation of display server inched towards general availability. While none of these changes alone should send the quality of the release into reverse, somewhere along the line, it hasn't all come together.
When Jim Whitehurst set out to write his book The Open Organization: Igniting Passion and Performance, he wasn't looking to define the open-source movement in the same way that Eric Raymond's The Cathedral and the Bazaar defined open-source. Rather than define open-source as a development methodology, Whitehurst's focus is on open-source principles as applied to the domain of company management.
The House of Representatives has officially jumped on the open source bandwagon. A June 25 announcement declared that U.S. representatives, committees and staff would be able to procure open source software, participate in open source software communities and contribute code developed with taxpayer dollars to open source repositories.
The main features at a glance:
Using Sencha ExtJS 5.1.1 framework for the WebGUI
Add a new dashboard and widgets
Many internal improvements and bugfixes
Improved the internal network interface backend
Add Wi-Fi support. Only WPA & WPA2 is supported
Add VLAN support
The network interface configuration page has been modified. Now only the configuration values are displayed. Use the dashboard widget to show the state of all network interfaces.
The public key of the user must now be specified in the RFC 4716 SSH public key file format. It is possible to add multiple keys.
Option to turn off the collection of system performance statistics.
Use the browser local storage to store the WebGUI state (e.g. displayed grid columns, column width, …) instead of cookies.

The Dronecode open-source UAV platform initiative has announced that it has welcomed on board a raft of new members, who'll help drive the project towards becoming a de facto standard for consumer and commercial drones.
The non-profit organisation – governed by the Linux Foundation – was formed in late 2014. Founding members 3D Robotics (3DR) and Yuneec International have since been joined by 27 other organisations and sponsored members, keen to participate in the "neutral, transparent initiative for advancing UAV technology", as the Linux Foundation's marketing big cheese Amanda McPherson described it.
Some new tidbits about Nokia's Android future have surfaced and word is that Foxconn will be making the Android smartphones for Nokia. That is no big surprise considering that Foxconn makes many of the popular smartphones on the market today for the companies who sell them including the Nokia N1 and the iPhone.
Word has also surfaced that the first markets to get the new Nokia Android smartphones will be India, China, and a few European nations. Nokia appears to be targeting markets where smartphones are booming in popularity but aren’t as saturated as they are in other countries. These also appear to be nations where consumers show or budget devices rather than high-end devices.
