The demand for Linux developers has jumped seven per cent in comparison to last year, a study has shown.
The 2014 Linux Jobs Report shows that hiring managers at tech-powered companies are focusing more attention on Linux talent, and that’s reverberating in the market, with stronger than average salary increases to those working with the OS.
The GNOME development team is working hard on the next major version of their controversial and modern GNOME desktop environment, release 3.16, which will bring a number of improvements in performance, stability, and updated components, each one having its own major features. This is the case of GNOME Control Center, which is now available to testers worldwide in a beta form.
In announcing the new OpenStack platform release, Red Hat emphasized other tools it has recently developed that will help customers avoid vendor lock-in and assure interoperabiliity. Those resources include a cloud management API for RHEL OpenStack Platform and a certification program for third-party cloud software that is designed to work with Red Hat's product.
"Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6 delivers enterprise-grade and telco-ready features, fueled by deep engagements with hundreds of customers and partners across the globe, to enable an open cloud infrastructure," Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager, OpenStack, Red Hat, said in a statement. "Backed by our robust partner ecosystem, this release can enable a wider variety of enterprises and cloud service providers to quickly transition to an OpenStack-powered cloud infrastructure."
There is no shortage of desktop environments for Linux, which means you can customize your PC the way you want it.
I have used almost all major desktop environments -- not just to test the waters but to actually find the one that works for me -- because, you know, the best DE is the one that fits your needs.
Here are 10 highlights:
1. 3.15 was the biggest kernel release ever with 13,722 patches merged. "I imagine we will surpass that again," Corbet said. "The amount of changes to the kernel is just going up over time."
2. The number of developers participating is going up over time while the amount of time it takes us to create a kernel is actually dropping over time. It started at 80 days between kernel releases some time ago, and it's now down to about 63 days. "I don't know how much shorter we can get," het said.
3. Developers added seven new system calls to the kernel over the past year, along with new features such as deadline scheduling, control group reworking, multiqueue block layer, and lots of networking improvmenets. That's in addition to hundreds of new hardware drivers and thousands of bug fixes.
Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin thinks the information security world needs fewer surgeons and more personal trainers, and he's putting his organization's money where his mouth is.
Speaking at this year's Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, an invite-only event taking place this week in Santa Rosa, California, Zemlin took a break from his customary Linux and open source cheerleading to stress that the open source community needs to do more to address security.
Drone technology has also reached a maturity level that the embedded Linux, ROS (Robot Operating System) and drone communities are converging, Anderson said. Dronecode, a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, is designed to bring these various communities together to work on a common open source platform for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology.
