The ZaTab is unlocked so you can do whatever you want with it, just like a PC. Like install CyanogenMod to get the latest and greatest in truly free Android. Or try some other tablet operating system like Bohdi Linux, Firefox OS or Kubuntu Netbook Plasma. I have no idea if they run on the ZaTab, so if you try them please let us know in the comments if it worked. You can also install any apps you want, and not just the Google-approved ones, and develop and test your own apps. (Be sure to check out Juliet Kemp's excellent series on Android development for beginners.)

For the first time, Oracle’s customized kernel, Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 3, is installed as the default kernel for the distribution—the stock RHEL kernel is also included in the package as an alternative. As a result, Oracle Linux now supports the DTrace dynamic tracing framework out of the box, though it still needs to be downloaded separately. Oracle Linux 6.4 offered users a way to download and install DTrace, though it required changes to the kernel.
The nice thing about Arch is that it’s very much custom-built by the users. It can be suitable for almost anything, including old computers which are now targeted by many different distributions  (Softpedia now counts as many as 2,000 distros ).
The Western Australian Institute for Medical Research will today take ownership of a private cloud solution built almost entirely of open source technologies to prepare for an influx of researchers over the coming weeks.
Since the advent of Project Neon it's been made very easy to try out KDE Frameworks 5 and Plasma 2 for Kubuntu Linux users, however, it's now even easier.
Vuzix began selling an Android-based eyewear computer for $1,000. The Vuzix M100 sports a 16:9, WQVGA display, and offers a 5-megapixel camera and GPS.
Once again, Canonical does a good job at protecting its supported Ubuntu Linux distributions by releasing security updates from time to time. On December 3, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS received a major kernel upgrade that fixed twelve vulnerabilities discovered in the upstream Linux 3.2 kernel by various developers (eight of them were discovered by Kees Cook).
“The more classified the data gets and the closer to mission the application becomes, the more appropriate it is to have something built for you,”
Last year, Google unveiled Compute Engine at Google I/O, apparently seeking to compete with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure for the cloud computing needs of businesses.
The GNOME Project has announced recently that the first development version towards GNOME Terminal 3.12 is available for download and testing. The final release will be part of the upcoming GNOME 3.12 desktop environment.
