After much heated discussion, Mark Shuttleworth has a new proposal on how Ubuntu Linux should handle rolling releases.
It's no secret that Linux and open-source projects have fights over the direction of a project, but it's unusual for Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu, to public fuss with programmers via his blog.
Linux, once again, proved to be far more secure than most other operating systems as Google's Linus-based Chrome OS shrugged off its attackers at the $3.14-million Pwnium cracking competition.
Many people know that Chrome OS is based on Linux. But where did Google's operating system actually come from -- and what is it made of today? Here's its story.
Torvalds may have come to terms with the Linux GNOME interface, but what he really, really likes is his new Google Chromebook Pixel's display.
Pretty much everyone agrees that Google's Chromebook Pixel is too expensive to just run the Chrome OS Web browser. But what if it could run Android tablet apps as well?
The fuss over how to handle Windows 8 PC's Secure Boot keys in desktop Linux continues and Linus Torvalds spells out how he wants to see it handled.
Is the new Chromebook Pixel better than the previously best-equipped Chromebook, the Samsung Series 5 550? Of course, but is it $850 better?
Linux founder Linus Torvalds makes no bones about it. He thinks inserting signed binaries into the Linux kernel is "moronic".
Linux leader Red Hat has shipped another minor update to its 6 enterprise line to better equip its distribution for massive scale out, big data environments. Along the same lines, the company also announced this week it will contribute its Red Hat Storage Hadoop plug-in to the Apache Hadoop project
Great news for Linux pros and bad news for hiring managers. A survey says companies are will be desperate for Linux pros in the next six months. Plus, the salaries for Linux staffers are on the rise.
Red Hat spells out its big data plans, which includes more Hadoop integration.
As expected, Canonical has announced their plans for Ubuntu on tablets as well as the signing of a deal with a major mobile silicon provider to provide Ubuntu smartphone and tablet chips.
In addition to upgrading its Sputnik Ubuntu Linux laptop for developers, Dell is also making it available in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
Not everyone thinks Canonical can create a unified Ubuntu for PCs, smartphones, tablets and TVs. But Mark Shuttleworth has an answer for them.
Dump Microsoft Office, with its new licensing restrictions, and get LibreOffice instead.
Once again, a Microsoft partner claims that Linux is less secure than Windows. What else would they say?
So, ready to start playing Steam-based games on your Ubuntu system? Well, follow-along with me and away we'll go!
Ubuntu Linux for the smartphone is taking a big step forward. The developer preview will be available next week for Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4 smartphones
No longer a pipe-dream or a beta, the Steam gaming client is now available for Ubuntu. What was that about there not being any games for Linux?
