Today, HP officially launches the open source Open Switch network operating system. Intended to be the base of an open community, the new effort is supported by VMware, Intel, Broadcom, Broadcom and Arista. Mark Carroll, Vice-President and CTO at HP, emphasized that the OpenSwitch operating system is really a community-driven development base. Though HP is announcing the OpenSwitch OS at the Linuxcon EU conference, the effort is not formally backed by the Linux Foundation.
The Android-x86 project is an on-going effort to make Google's Android operating system, typically run on phones and other mobile devices, run smoothly on laptops, desktop computers and tablets equipped with x86 processors. Android-x86, on paper at least, offers most of the features one would expect from a desktop operating system.
This week I decided to download the project's latest release, version 4.4-r3, and see how well it would work as a desktop operating system. The Android-x86 download page is a bit cluttered, but I eventually found what I was looking for, a 411MB ISO file I could use to install this unusual operating system.
The new release of DNF and DNF-PLUGINS-CORE is coming to Fedora stable repositories. The `–downloadonly` option supported in yum is now available in DNF and repoquery from DNF-PLUGINS-CORE has extended it’s functionality of reverse RPM tag queries (`–what*`) for glob patterns. Aside from that nearly 20 bug fixes have been made in this DNF stack release. For further details look at DNF and DNF plugins release notes.
The Osaka-based electronics maker said Tuesday it would introduce a new mobile communication device in 2016 that is a tiny android robot. It will come with features of a smartphone including email, Internet connectivity, camera and a 2-inch display. Still to be decided is whether the device will use Google Inc.’s Android mobile operating system or another operating system.
The Linux Foundation today is announcing a new Real-Time Linux Collaborative Project, though it's important to first understand and realize that efforts to develop Real-Time Linux have been ongoing for over a decade.
Back in October of 2004, MontaVista Linux (now owned by Cavium) launched its Real-Time Linux effort, which saw multiple kernel developments land Real-Time Linux Kernelin 2005. In 2006, Wind River (now owned by Intel) joined the Real-Time Linux market, pushing it forward.
Until 2006, Real-Time Linux had been a separate area of development from the mainline Linux kernel, but that changed with the Linux 2.6.22 kernel, which was the first to include Real-Time. Various improvements have been incorporated and integrated in multiple kernels since as Real-Time has evolved.
On the occasion of the 24th anniversary of the first Linux kernel release (do not confuse it with the anniversary of birth of Linux kernel, on August 25), the Linux Foundation non-profit organization debuts the world's first Linux animated video series.
Sasha Levin, a kernel developer and maintainer of the Linux 3.18 LTS (Long-Term Support) kernel branch, has announced the release and immediate availability for download of Linux kernel 3.18.22.
The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux and collaborative development, today announced the OpenChain Workgroup, a community effort to standardize common best practices for open software compliance. It is expected to reduce costs and duplication of efforts and ease friction points in the software supply chain.
A new update to OpenIndiana is available, the operating system powered by Illumos that's derived from what was the OpenSolaris code-base prior to it being killed by Oracle. OpenIndiana 2015.10 "Hipster" is the name of this new release.
On October 4, Alexander Pyhalov had the great pleasure of announcing the immediate availability for download of the OpenIndiana 2015.10 (Hipster) open-source Solaris-based operating system.

Here are the minimum system requirements for running Black Lab Core Server 7.
KDE software has been used in many large scale deployments, including universities, governments and countless companies.
One of these organizations suggested that KDE create a deployment forum so that others can benefit from their deployment experience. The forum would provide an opportunity for sysadmins and developers to ask questions and discuss problems/solutions related to deploying KDE software in large, complex environments.
It has been nearly a month since I got back from the Randa Meetings this year, and the memories are still fresh in my mind. This was my first KDE event that I have attended, and the overall experience was awesome!
Earlier today, October 3, Collabora's Emil Velikov had the pleasure of announcing the immediate availability for download of the ninth and last maintenance release of the Mesa 3D Graphics Library 10.6 branch.

Once you get beyond Nexus devices, your guess is as good as mine as to when you will see the upgrade happen. If Verizon is your carrier, you'll likely see it sooner than later. However, if you're locked into an AT&T contract, the upgrade might be a bit slower.

If you were running Microsoft, how would you go about converting Windows into a fully Open Source project?
It may seem like a ludicrous idea to many – the notion that Microsoft would ever willingly open source their cash cow operating system – but I want to think this through. If I had control of Microsoft, how would I accomplish this seemingly impossible task? What are the specific steps I would take to get us from point A to point B?
