Among the biggest changes in the new Red Hat release is the fact that Red Hat is now doubling the support length from the 1.5 years that was available in OSP 4.0 to three years with OSP 5.0. A key value proposition that Red Hat offers with OSP is commercial support and enterprise hardening. Since OpenStack is an open-source effort, there are a number of freely available OpenStack distributions, including Red Hat's own community RDO distribution. The free OpenStack distributions, however, generally do not have any form of commercial support. -

The Odroid project launched an “Odroid-XU3? open source SBC based on Samsung’s HMP-ready Exynos5422, which mixes four Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 cores. Hardkernel’s Odroid project announced pre-orders for the Odroid-XU3 at $179, with shipments starting on Aug. 18. The open-spec single board computer is the fastest of over a dozen other Samsung-based Odroid siblings, including an Odroid-XU model that it essentially replaces. Whereas the $149-$169 Odroid-XU runs Samsung’s original eight-core Exynos5410 Octa system-on-chip, the Odroid-XU advances to the new Exynos5422, which was announced back at February’s Mobile World Congress.

Trust in government is not exactly at an all-time high. Sure, there are oppressive governments such as Iran and China that filter and block web content, but even the USA has a spotty record. With all the news of PRISM and other spying programs, it is hard to tell which way is up anymore. One way to solve this dilemma is through transparency and honesty. Unfortunately, as long as governments use closed-source software, it is hard to audit and trust the actions. Today, Canonical announces that not only has Munich taken an open approach to computing with Ubuntu, but the city is saving millions of euros too. Using open-source software and saving money? maybe all governments should make the switch to Linux.
