Not a Fedora user but I am curious what is the difference between the two. Are they hostile one to the other?

  • FOSDEM 2017 Day 1: Arrival

    Extra t-shirt, check! Toothbrush, check! 60 pairs of socks, check! Friday the 3rd february was day 1 of my trip to FOSDEM with Open Source Aalborg. We’ve booked flight tickets so we can go early in the morning just to make the best out of the 4 days we’ll be staying in Brussels. 10 minutes intensive situps + 10 kilometers bike trip to the airport at 5 AM and you feel like you can do anything afterwards. At the local airport in Aalborg I met Daniel and Anders. Much of the morning we spent just talking while flights, escalators and trains would take us to our destination. In all three years I have attended FOSDEM, it has had 500-600 events happening over the course of just one weekend. Finding and planning which talks to see and handling conflicting talks is enough of a hassle that it appears there is even an apps for it. I’m not that big of a talk goer though. I’m looking much more forward to helping in the GNOME booth, visiting booths and speaking with people I haven’t had a conversation with face-to-face for many months.

  • BSD @ FOSDEM 2017: Encrypted Disks, Go, CloudABI

    On Saturday at this year's FOSDEM conference there was a BSD developer room where various talks were had for European BSD fans.

    For Phoronix BSD readers who weren't in attendance at this year's Free Open-Source Developers' European Meeting, many of the PDF slides and videos have already been uploaded. When it comes to the BSD talks this year there was work presented on packaging Golang for pkgsrc, GELIBoot for booting FreeBSD from an encrypted disk, evolution on top of the BSD's, and CloudABI for FreeBSD.

  • Corrode Is Still Advancing For Auto-Translating C Code To Rust

    Free software developer Jamey Sharp continues working on his "Corrode" project for being able to automatically convert C code into Rust.

    Corrode is all about converting C code to Rust, largely to migrate large, legacy code-bases over to Rust, which is known for its memory safety features and other benefits of a modern programming language. But Jamey Sharp does agree that not all C projects should turn to Rust but in cases like the CVS code-base, he continues to believe it's much better off (and safer) in Rust.

  • Metasploit Targets Hardware for IoT Security Penetration Testing

    Open-source Metasploit penetration testing framework adds new hardware support, enabling researchers to target IoT devices, starting with automotive.

    Security vendor Rapid7 has been helping to lead the open-source Metasploit penetration testing framework project since October 2009, largely focused on software. On Feb. 2, Rapid7 announced a new expansion of Metasploit's capabilities to enable security researchers to directly link to hardware for vulnerability testing.

    The new hardware enablement is currently in the open-source Metasploit framework and is available via GitHub. Additionally, Rapid7 plans on packaging the capability in the standard open-source Metasploit community edition.

UniK: Isolating Processes and Reducing Complexity

LXer - Sun, 2017-02-05 18:17
Unikernels aren’t a new concept; the stripped-down, library-specific application machine images have been around for decades.  But unikernels are enjoying a renaissance thanks to cloud computing; they offer major efficiencies in resource use and provide a tiny attack service for nefarious online activities.

  • Polymorph: A Libre Game Engine Making Use Of OGRE

    There's another open-source game engine in town that's been under development since last year but received more exposure this weekend via the FOSDEM 2017 conference in Brussels.

    Polymorph is a libre video game engine that makes use of OGRE 3D for its graphics engine while pulls in Puredata for its sound support and more. Polymorph does make use of other free software projects including the Bullet physics engine and GIMP / Inkscape / Blender for graphics design. Polymorph appears to be about being a game engine as much as it is about promoting open tools and a free software community around their effort.

  • Licensing resource series: the FSF Compliance Lab Team

    This is the latest installment in the Free Software Foundation's (FSF) Licensing & Compliance Lab's series highlighting the FSF Compliance Lab Team.

    The FSF receives thousands of licensing questions a year from free software users and developers. The staff on the FSF Compliance Lab would not be able to handle all these requests on their own. That is why we are so grateful to our volunteers who assist us in our efforts. Volunteers are one of the most important resources an organization can muster.

Which Linux magazine to subscribe to? (Q1 2017)

Reddit - Sun, 2017-02-05 17:16

Lately I've been thinking of subscribing to a Linux magazine in print again. I used to subscribe to Linux Format which I liked. Good mix of news, useful tutorials and in-depth interviews and stories all with a touch of humour.

However I see that about half of the team left for Linux Voice which is now a part of Linux Magazine, which to me doesn't seem to be that packed.

Also Linux User & Developer caught my eye but I don't see it being that better suited for professionals than LXF. They claim to target Linux IT professionals yet they have a bash beginner guide in one of their latest issues.

Any suggestions? What's your view on the current Linux magazines?

Any former Linux Voice subscribers? What have you moved on to?

I know that there's a thread about a year old with the same question, but as Linux Voice doesn't get published anymore I decided to make a new thread.
