Seems pclinuxos has been up to their old tricks, but this time they couldn't outrun the reach of MICE. It appears their domain has been seized by the Microsoft Intellectual Property Police and visitors there are subjected to the familiar "seized by authorities" announcement.

  • Etisalat Digital to add SUSE open source solutions

  • SUSE Rolls Out New Version Of Their In-Kernel Boot Splash Screen
    Back in October I wrote about SUSE working on a new, in-kernel bootsplash project. That work has yet to be mainlined but it looks like it's still on track for going upstream in the future with the latest version now being released that addresses issues uncovered during review. SUSE is developing this in-kernel bootsplash program as an alternative to the user-space Plymouth and other programs. SUSE's implementation runs off the FBCON frame-buffer console rather than DRM/KMS and they hope with it being in the kernel will prove to be more reliable. This in-kernel bootsplash can also allow hiding all kernel output and other differences compared to user-space implementations.

It's FOSS on Linux Vs. Unix and 32-bit Architectures

  • Linux Vs. Unix
    ​In computer time, a substantial part of the population has a misconception that the Unix and Linux operating systems are one and the same. However, the opposite is true. Let's look at it from a closer look.
  • Open Source OS Still supporting 32-bit Architecture and Why it’s Important
    One after the other, Linux distributions are dropping 32-bit support. Or, to be accurate, they drop support for the Intel x86 32-bit architecture (IA-32). Indeed, computers based on x86_64 hardware (x86-64) are superior in every way to their 32-bits counterpart: they are more powerful, run faster, are more compact, and more energy efficient. Not mentioning their price has considerably decreased in just a few years.
