Linux 4.15-rc4

So it looks like 4.15 is finally calming down, with rc4 being about average size-wise for this time in the release process. Of course, we not only have the holiday season coming up, we *also* have some x86 entry and page table handling fixes pending. But that's not for today, and not for rc4. Let's enjoy the short normal phase of 4.15 today. The most noticeable thing to most normal users in rc4 is that we should finally have cleaned up and fixed the suspend/resume handling. That got first broken for some (unusual) kernel configurations due to excessive debugging at a very inopportune time in early resume, and when _that_ got fixed, we broke the 32-bit case. Not many developers run 32-bit builds in real life any more, so that took a bit to even notice. Read more Also:Linux 4.15-rc4 Kernel Released

As a dedicated Linux user I consider that to be a good thing, simply because choice is always good, and it is always good to have several groups of talented and dedicated people working on something. But as a long-time user of Kali Linux (and BackTrack before that) I honestly believe that Kali is still the best in the field, so I am always pleased when I hear there is a new Kali release.

Sri Lanka advised to go for open source software in schools

The Asian Development Bank has advised Sri Lanka to go for open source software as opposed to branded software in using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education. “Software is a prime concern in learning. Therefore, open source is recommended for a developing country like Sri Lanka to achieve international quality standards of ICT education,” the ADB said in a recent study. “Free and open source software provides a greatly flexible environment - economically, operationally, and technically - to implement ICT applications in education.” Administrative authorities of the school education system should be motivated and provided with guidelines for the use of free and open source software in the school environment, said the study on opportunities of ICT for education equity, quality, and efficiency in South Asia.
