washingtontimes.com: I don't know how Charles Darwin would explain it, but imagine that we're each born with an "operating system." For most of us, this inner programming works well, even if it becomes a bit bruised and battered over the years. We adjust and move on.

netbookknowhow.com: When the netbook first arrived onto the market at the backend of 2007, it came riding with Linux in the saddle. Now 18 months on and Linux-preinstalled netbooks are as rare as hen’s teeth. But which operating system is really the better option?

A couple of weeks ago I attended the yearly National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) trade show in Las Vegas. This year the show itself was a little quieter than usual - for example the RED camera circus wasn't in town, drawing hundreds, blocking aisles and making a nuisance of itself - which generally meant it was easier to walk around, talk to people and actually learn a few things.

Fedora: The Latest

  • Korora 22 Flash Update
    As we announced when Korora 22 was released, Adobe Flash is no longer included by default.
  • Fedora repository for Doom stuff: Zandronum, Doomseeker, CnDoom
    I had a bit of free time over the last few days, and looked at the current state of the art for Doom on Linux. The awesome Rahul Sundaram has been looking after several Doom-related packages for a while – including the Chocolate Doom package – but there are some things that seem to be commonly used these days that we didn’t have packaged. So I packaged them up, and put them in a new repository!
  • CUDA 7.0 enabled programs for Fedora 22
    I’ve udpated the CUDA version in the Fedora 22 Nvidia repository, it now contains CUDA 7.0.28 along with the cuFFT 7.0.35 patch. Note that from this version, CUDA is x86_64 bit compatible only, so there are no more i386 packages. There is still the cudart library available for 32 bit, but I don’t think it’s worth packaging.
  • Secure Boot — Fedora, RHEL, and Shim Upstream Maintenance: Government Involvement or Lack Thereof
    Note that there are parts of this chain I’m not a part of, and obviously linux distributions I’m not involved in that support Secure Boot. I encourage other maintainers to offer similar statements for their respective involvement.
  • Remi repository is changing
    The "remi" repository exists for > 10 years, it have changed a lot, and some recent changes worth to be explained.
