  • ​No Reboot Patching Comes to Ubuntu 15.10 via Linux Kernel 4.0, Says Mark Shuttleworth

    According to The Inquirer, Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Canonical and Ubuntu, has confirmed that the recently announced Linux kernel 4.0 will be included in the upcoming Ubuntu 15.10 operating system in October 2015.

  • Linux Kernel 4.0 available in Fedora 22 Alpha

    Early this week, Linus released version 4.0 of the Linux Kernel. Now, this updated version of the Linux Kernel is available in the official Fedora repositories for users running the alpha release of Fedora 22.

  • Fedora 22 and Kernel 4.0

    The major version change wasn't done because of any major feature or change in process or really anything exciting at all. Linus Torvalds changed it because he felt the minor version number was getting a bit large and he liked 4.0 better. It was really a whim more than any thing contained within the kernel itself. The initial merge window builds of this kernel in Fedora were even called 3.20.0-rc0.gitX until the 4.0-rc1 release came out.

Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst: Open Source Market Is 'Mind-Bending'

Interviews

Jim Whitehurst took the reigns at Red Hat in 2007. Since then, the Raleigh, N.C.-based company has become the first billion-dollar open-source software vendor. Under Whitehurst's management, Red Hat greatly diversified the open-source products it offers business customers beyond its well-known Linux distribution and built a vibrant channel.

After delivering a keynote at the 2015 Red Hat Partner Conference in Orlando, Fla., last week, Red Hat's CEO took some time to talk to CRN about the future of the open-source market, emerging technologies like OpenStack, OpenShift and Docker, and how partners can sell those technologies as enterprise-grade products.

Red Hat
Interviews

I’m Kevin Fenzi, and I have been using Linux since about 1996 or so (Red Hat Linux 3.0.3 was my first Linux distro). Currently I am employed by Red Hat as Fedora Infrastructure Leader. Basically I maintain (with my team and the community) all the Fedora servers, including the build system, downloads, compose machines, end-user applications and so on. It’s a great place to work and a great community to be involved in. I’m also involved in lots of other places in Fedora.

'Data scientists are very scarce,' says Red Hat CIO

Filed under
Red Hat

It's difficult to hire good data scientists as the right candidates are "very scarce" because universities and colleges have failed to adapt to meet the needs of the enterprise.

That's according to Lee Congdon, CIO of open source software provider Red Hat, who is attempting to shift the Raleigh, North Carolina-based firm towards a more "data driven" business model.

RDO OpenStack Promises Easy, Free Open Source Cloud Computing

Filed under
Red Hat
OSS

RDO is a version of OpenStack designed for use on CentOS, a Linux distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Actually, "based on" is a bit of a stretch, because CentOS is basically the RHEL source code recompiled by third parties—which is totally legal and kosher with Red Hat, of course, since the source is open. The only difference between CentOS and RHEL is that the former comes with no enterprise-class support or ecosystem integration.
