Neofytos Kolokotronis from the Chakra GNU/Linux distribution was proud to announce a few moments ago the release and immediate availability of the Chakra GNU/Linux 2017.03 "Goedel."
Dubbed Goedel, in the memory of the mathematician, philosopher, and logician Kurt Goedel, Chakra GNU/Linux 2017.03 is the first ISO snapshot of the KDE Plasma oriented distribution originally based on Arch Linux. The new release comes with a revamped Heritage theme and the Calamares installer with support for LUKS encrypted partitions.
MATE Desktop 1.18 is now available to download. The release completes the migration to GTK3, and adds a splash of improvements to many of its core apps.
In January, we published our first Internet Health Report on the current state and future of the Internet. In the report, we broke down the concept of Internet health into five issues. Today, we are publishing issue briefs about each of them: online privacy and security, decentralization, openness, web literacy and digital inclusion. These issues are the building blocks to a healthy and vibrant Internet. We hope they will be a guide and resource to you.
We live in a complex, fast moving, political environment. As policies and laws around the world change, we all need to help protect our shared global resource, the Internet. Internet health shouldn’t be a partisan issue, but rather, a cause we can all get behind. And our choices and actions will affect the future health of the Internet, for better or for worse.
Hundreds of companies are now using the open source Prometheus monitoring solution in production, across industries ranging from telecommunications and cloud providers to video streaming and databases.
While many of us may be more familiar with the virtualization and remote access products from Citrix, Danny Phillips was talking about their products in the networking space during his keynote presentation at LinuxCon Europe.
Battery Monitor is a simple utility tool developed on Python3 and PyGtk3. It will notify (plays a sound and pops up a notification bubble) user about charging, discharging, not charging and critically low battery state of the battery on Linux (If battery is present).

ScudCloud is an unofficial Linux desktop client app for the popular instant messaging and collaboration app, Slack.
It has a typical Ubuntu UI and its best integration with the Unity desktop but it will work just as well in any of the other popular desktops e.g. Gnome and KDE.
I rarely (if ever) see dock apps running on KDE desktops — but that could be about to change. Latte Dock is a new desktop dock for KDE. Think Plank but for Plasma. It’s more than an app launcher too as it can act as a total Plasma panel replacement.
Some of you may have read (and were no doubt left rather bemused by) my recent misty-eyed reminisce about the bouncy ball widget that KDE used to ship with.
The development team behind the digiKam Software Collection project, an open-source initiative to offer a free, powerful and cross-platform image editor and organizer application, announced the release of digiKam 5.5.0.
The Khronos session videos from this year's Game Developers' Conference (GDC 17) are now available online.
Mesa release manager Emil Velikov is arranging to release Mesa 13.0.6 in the days ahead.
Linux gamers and enthusiasts should really be running Mesa 17.0 if you don't want to risk running Mesa 17.1-devel Git, but for those still on Mesa 13, it's continuing to receive fixes. There are more than one hundred patches queued under their new stable nomination scheme for getting fixes backported to current Mesa stable series.
The title was to grab attention but, basically what I'm wanting to know is how would I go about starting a career in IT? I just graduated high school this past year and have been working odd jobs but, haven't gone to school yet as I have no idea what to go for or how to go about doing it. I got into linux a little over 2 years ago and would still consider myself very much a noob in all respects but, I love the way it feels and its extensibility compared to Windows. Sorry for wasting you guys time and asking too many question but, I appreciate all the help in advance.submitted by /u/Infurioth
It could be a small single-board computer like the Raspberry Pi, which costs around US $30, BeagleBone for approximately US $60, Intel Edison for US $70, or other similar devices. These computers usually run Linux. These are suitable for some tasks, like being a gateway device, but again they are quite large, very power hungry, and too expensive to run on things like sensors, wearables, and small appliances.
My way of celebrating Pi Day (March 14th = 3.14) was to take a look at an awesome little image for the Raspberry Pi called Minibian. A new edition of Minibian was released on 12 March 2017, updating the image with support for the latest RPi 3B and other improvements.
Minibian is based on and fully compatible with the official Raspbian “Jesse” software. It is meant to be used for embedded linux and server type situations, and that is great for IoT scenarios. There is no desktop environment and much effort has gone to providing a minimalist operating system that conserves system resources. The 12 March release of Minibian boasts a 15 second boot time, 31 MB of RAM usage, 477 MB of disk space usage, and is small enough to fit on a 1GB SD card. My test install and inspection of Minibian shows that these claims are indeed correct.
Eurotech’s rugged, Linux-friendly “CPU-163-15” is an 84 x 55mm COM Express Type 10 Mini module with Bay Trail Atoms and soldered ECC and eMMC.
Eurotech’s Intel Atom E3800 “Bay Trail” based CPU-163-15 COM Express Type 10 Mini module continues the Amaro, Italy based company’s tradition of offering rugged embedded boards with support for its cloud-based Everyware Software Framework (ESF) IoT platform. Other recent Intel-based COM Express modules from Eurotech include the CPU-161-18, a headless COM Express Type 6 Compact module with a 12-core Xeon-D1500 from the Broadwell generation.
All essential data infrastructure these days is open source. Or rather, nearly all -- Splunk, the log analysis tool, remains stubbornly, happily proprietary. Despite a sea of competitors, the best of them open source, Splunk continues to generate mountains of cash.
A new malware that targets Linux-based Internet of Things (IoT) devices has been detected by Search-Lab, a Security research and development firm. This Linux ARM malware called as ELF_IMEIJ.A exploits a vulnerability in devices from AVTech, a surveillance technology company.

GitLab, a startup that provides open source and premium source code repository software that people use to collaborate on software, is announcing today that it has acquired Gitter, a startup that provides chat rooms that are attached to repositories of code so that collaborators can exchange messages. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Gitter has popped up more and more on GitHub, which is arguably GitLab’s biggest competitor. But Gitter chat rooms are also sprinkled throughout GitLab. For example, a repository for a command-line interface (CLI) for talking on Gitter itself has a Gitter chat room.
Today GitLab announced that it has acquired the chat app Gitter that many communities use for communication. Also, many Laravel sub-communities use it as well, and you can find these through the Gitter Laravel Tag
With its stable release now under a month away, Canonical has revealed the official mascot artwork for Ubuntu 17.04 ‘Zesty Zapus’.
In keeping with previous Ubuntu mascots the new Zesty Zapus graphic resembles a folded paper mouse.
Created by the Canonical design team, the official Zesty Zapus graphic will appear in Ubuntu 17.04 desktop documentation and show up on merchandise, like the traditional official release t-shirt, and event banners.
... Ubuntu 12.04 will reach end of life on Friday, April 28th.
