Linux and FOSS have a lot of energy going into great big projects: cloud, mainframe, supercomputing, and large-scale distributed computing. So bigtime projects like OpenShift, OpenStack, Hadoop, Xen, KVM, and enterprise offerings from Red Hat, SUSE, and Canonical are getting all the glory.But there is a lot happening at the other end of the spectrum, in small-scale specialized projects that anyone can play with for cheap. After wading through endless Ubuntu and Backtrack re-spins I found these 7 interesting, useful, and unique projects that were launched in 2013.

The “nuke” option that the developers of Kali Linux are cooking up is designed to let you specify a passphrase that will destroy saved keys thereby rendering data on the target disk inaccessible.
Try as I might, I can’t shake the feeling that 2014 is the year we lose the Web. The W3C push for DRM in all browsers is going to ensure that all interfaces built in HTML5 will be opaque to users, and it will be illegal to report on security flaws in them, so they will be riddled with holes that creeps, RATters, spooks, authoritarians and crooks will be able to use to take over your computer and fuck you in every possible way.
Collaborating with Intel and DreamWorks, Fuhu is prepping 8- and 12-inch Android 4.4 “DreamTab” tablets for kids, based on Intel’s 64-bit Atom Z3740 SoC. The DreamTab appears to be one of the first Android tablets to offer the Atom Z3740, Intel’s 64-bit version of the Atom Z3000 (“Bay Trail-T”) system-on-chip family. Other tablets that have […]
Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) virtualization has largely replaced Xen as the default open source mechanism for creating and supporting virtual machines (VMs) on most Linux systems. Though the motivation for this change is primarily build and support related rather than technical, the reality is that many enterprise IT groups that are interested in virtualization will need to learn the administrative command-and-control tools that KVM uses. Similarly, IT shops with an existing investment in Xen virtualization that are moving to KVM will probably want to convert existing VMs to the formats that KVM supports whenever possible, rather than having to re-create them.
Grab a patch today if you share your Unix-flavoured desktop with other peopleThe X Windows System, which today underpins Linux desktops the world over, has been around for more than two decades – and so have its bugs.…
Kate Chapman, executive director of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, gave Tuesday's keynote at Linux.conf.au about preparing and responding for disasters with the help of communities.
No discussion of the year's events would be complete without including Ed Snowden's NSA document leaks. Sterling's opening salvo addressed the NSA, pointing out how its ethos directly contradicts the utopian internet ideal.
The title of the original article is Build your own phone company with WebRTC and a weekend. I added the Node.js part because it a core tool used to make the application happen.
Intel and partners are going to be bringing us PCs that run both Android and Windows 8.1. Meanwhile, AMD and its partner BlueStacks will enable users to run Android and its apps on Windows.
A strategic Google-Synnex relationship will help business partners to deploy and centrally manage fleets of Chromebooks within schools and vertical market settings. The move comes only a few weeks after the search giant further enhanced its Google Apps partner program for resellers.
Red Hat (RHT) made its name as a leading open source vendor by selling and supporting enterprise Linux. But it needs to move beyond the Linux space to remain competitive in the age of the cloud, and in a sign of efforts to do so, the company has started the new year with two executive appointments that will strengthen its infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and cloud expertise.
HP and Lenovo announced new Android all-in-one (AiO) PCs — the Slate21 Pro and N308 — while LG unveiled the Chromebase, the first AiO to run Chrome OS. Several new Android all-in-one (AiO) computers are joining the handful of models currently available, appearing at different price points for both enterprise and consumers. On the high end is the Acer TA272 HUL we covered yesterday, featuring a 27-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) touchscreen, and the ability to double as a general purpose monitor.
