Linux helps rural student transform rocky academic start into FOSS confidence

Filed under
Linux

I became more confident when I would explain FOSS philosophy to others. And, my friends began to ask for my assistance moving them to Linux. At school, I formed a FOSS club for our department to help spread FOSS awesomeness to more people. And, at the first club meeting, I gave a presentation on our purpose with confidence and passion! Our club activites include sessions and workshops on various open source projects, ranging from "Firefox add­on development" to "CMS" to "Make your own Linux using SUSE Studio."

Android

As Fall 2015 draws near and Google is getting ready to launch Android 6.0 Marshmallow, there are a number of new features that Google will equip its next-gen version of the Android OS with.

Back in June at the Google I/O conference, Google shared details on a number of upcoming features, and since then, even more have been discovered in the preview versions of the OS. But as with all new OS versions, only a slim number will turn out to significantly impact the overall experience. In this article, we'll talk about the 6 best Android 6.0 Marshmallow features to look forward to.

Boffins unveil open source GPU

Filed under
OSS

It's a kitten rather than a roar right now, but if the MIAOW project unveiled at last week's Hot Chips conference can get legs, the next year could see the launch of the world's first “open GPU”.

The result of 36 months' development (so far) by a team of 12 developers, MIAOW – the Many-core Integrated Accelerator of Wisconsin – is based on AMD's Southern Islands GPU ISA.

NVIDIA reveals GPUs for blade servers, Linux desktop support

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

VMworld 2015 NVIDIA has announced the second version of its Grid desktop virtualisation software, complete with a pair of GPUs for blade servers.

NVIDIA is pitching GRID as a hardware offering tuned to the needs of graphically-demanding desktop virtualisation (VDI) workloads. If that sounds a bit exotic, consider environments like the resources industry, where on-site engineers need CAD and modelling tools, but miners are loathe to deploy desktops in the remote sites where stuff gets dug out of the ground. VDI works a treat in such spots.

Reviews

To make a long story short: I’ve been running Linux Mint 17.2 Xfce for about a week now, long enough to take about a dozen screenshots (some of them included here), edit them in GIMP, watch about ten episodes of “Mad Men” on Netflix, and write this review. So far, the system has been responsive and stable, and other than slight changes in a couple of panel applets, I haven’t even noticed that I’ve changed OSes. As I said: business as usual.

If I were a movie reviewer, I’d give this baby a big ol’ thumbs up.

Linux 4.2 is out

Filed under
Linux

So judging by how little happened this week, it wouldn't have been a
mistake to release 4.2 last week after all, but hey, there's certainly
a few fixes here, and it's not like delaying 4.2 for a week should
have caused any problems either.

So here it is, and the merge window for 4.3 is now open. I already
have a few pending early pull requests, but as usual I'll start
processing them tomorrow and give the release some time to actually
sit.

The shortlog from rc8 is tiny, and appended. The patch is pretty tiny too.

Go get it,

Linus
