Ubuntu vs. Fedora Linux On Lenovo's X1 Carbon With Core i7 Broadwell

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Red Hat
Ubuntu

The latest distribution I tried on the X1 Carbon (and the OS I'll ultimately use for running the X1 Carbon in a production capacity as my main system) is Fedora 21. Fedora 21 booted up on the X1 Carbon wonderfully without any issues aside from the trackpoint button clicks being wonky (though the button clicks in the corner of the trackpad works fine). Fedora 21 with Wayland also ran fine on this system with Intel HD Graphics 5500. Overall, it was a pleasant experience without any major problems.

HAMMER2 File-System Is Still Slowly Coming Together

Filed under
BSD

Back when DragonFlyBSD's HAMMER2 file-system development began being publicized, it was believed it wasn't going to be ready until at least 2013. Fast forward two years, HAMMER2 isn't yet used by default on this BSD operating system and it's still being actively developed.

As we haven't heard much about HAMMER2 in quite some times, I was looking through the DragonFlyBSD HAMMER2 Git commits and happy to see this BTree-based file-system succeeding the original HAMMER FS is still being pursued. HAMMER2 has shipped in DragonFlyBSD since version 3.8.0 but is not considered production ready.

Google’s Project Ara Open Source Smartphone to Debut in Puerto Rico This Year

Filed under

OSS

Google sold Motorola to Lenovo, but retained the Advanced Research and Projects (ATAP) R&D group that runs the project. ATAP recently showed off a second generation prototype of the Ara phone, and earlier this month, Google announced plans to launch a 2015 pilot program in Puerto Rico. Project Ara has also recently attracted some interesting technology partners, including battery maker SolidEnergy, audio experts Sennheiser, and health accessory designer Lapka.

Together with ATAP's Project Tango for developing 3D sensing phones, Project Ara represents Google's vision for the smartphone future. The timing seems right, as the Android smartphone scene is looking a bit moribund compared to hot-ticket technologies like wearables, drones, and home automation.
