Server

Red Hat is looking to improve upon Docker’s software-delivery mechanism with the Atomic command feature of its Atomic Host operating system for Linux containers.

Last month, Red Hat released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL7) Atomic Host, a version of the enterprise operating system expressly designed to run containers. The “Atomic command” feature defines entry points for Project Atomic hosts, delivered via Docker container, with the goal of filling the software-delivery gaps in Linux container implementations.

Red Hat Extends Open Source BPM Momentum

Filed under
Red Hat

As a champion of open source software Red Hat (RHT) may be best known for its distribution of Linux, but it turns out that the company’s fastest growing product in terms of adoption is actually its open source business process management (BPM) software.

With the releases today of upgraded Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite and Red Hat JBoss BRMS, Red Hat is trying to capitalize on that momentum by including new planning software in those releases that was developed by the OptaPlanner JBoss open source community project, said Phil Simpson, principal product marketing manager for BPM software at Red Hat.

GNOME

Anyway, I thought this could be a good opportunity to actually ask the wider community a question, especially if you are using GNOME on another distribution than Fedora, what are we still missing at this point for you to consider making a switch to Fedora Workstation? I know that for some of you the answer might be as simple as ‘worn in shoes fits the best’, but anything you might have beyond that would be great to hear.
I can’t promise that we will be able to implement every suggestion you add to this blog post, but I do promise that we will review and consider every suggestion you provide and try to see how it can fit into development plans going forward.

  • ​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.

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.
