I'm really intrigued to know what all of you love about the Linux platform that it keeps you from moving to another operating system? What can you do that no one else can?
Don't spare any details! As someone who would love to make the move to Linux, I want to know everything that makes this platform the best.
Conversely, what makes you really want to give it up all together and move to the other popular OS's.submitted by /u/GranArcanum
Over the past decade, the majority of new open source OS projects have shifted from the mobile market to the Internet of Things. In this fifth article in our IoT series, we look at the many new open source operating systems that target IoT.
SafeEyes is a simple Linux utility that protect you from Eye Strain by reminding or forcing you to take breaks after a particular period of time.
If you cycled the clock back about 15 years and surveyed the prevailing beliefs about open source technology at the time, you would find nowhere near the volume of welcome for it that we see today. As a classic example, The Register reported all the way back in 2001 that former CEO of Microsoft Steve Ballmer made the following famous statement in a Chicago Sun-Times interview: "Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches."
The flaws are serious enough that the Joomla project released a prenotification about the planned update on Friday
If you're using Linux distro other than Arch CLI then it's one of the toughest tasks to setup WiFi on Arch Linux using terminal.
Finally! Today we released the first version of PVS-Studio analyzer for Linux. Now Linux developers are getting a new powerful tool to fight bugs in the code. We ask you to spread this news in the world. Tell your colleagues, post it on Twitter and Facebook! Let the programs be more stable and safe!
Starting with the 6.10 version, PVS-Studio analyzer supports not only Windows, but the Linux too.
PVS-Studio performs static code analysis and generates a report that helps a programmer find and fix bugs. PVS-Studio performs a wide range of code checks, it is also useful to search for misprints and Copy-Paste errors. Demonstrative examples of such errors: V501, V517, V522, V523, V571, V611.
Windows-based version of the analyzer is still available here. The analyzer integrates with Visual Studio 2010-2015 or can be used separately in the Standalone mode.
The new Linux version (.deb, .rpm, .tgz) is available for download on the page:
We also recommend reading the documentation section "How to run PVS-Studio on Linux". If something is not clear or something does not work, we will gladly help you, feel free to ask questions in the mail.
If you want to get a registration key to try out the tool - contact us. Over the time the process of getting the trial version may change, but now it is important for us to understand who downloads the analyzer, how the person uses it and which issues appear during the usage.
P.S. Right after the release of the Linux-version we may be a little overwhelmed by the amount of feedback and questions. That's why we ask for your understanding, if we answer them with a little delay./u/Resistor510
Some Phoronix Premium readers had recently requested some fresh I/O scheduler benchmarks using the Linux 4.9 kernel, so here are those test results.
Included in this short article are some I/O scheduler comparison benchmarks using the Linux 4.9 Git code from last week when comparing Noop, Deadline, and CFQ mainline choices. The disk used was running EXT4 and was a 120GB Samsung 850 EVO solid-state drive.
The move toward ARM-based servers took another step forward this week as SUSE announced plans for server and storage versions of Linux supporting 64-bit ARM SoCs. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and SUSE Enterprise Storage will be available before the end of the year.
Intel currently dominates the server sector, one of its most profitable markets, with its x86 Xeon processors.
