As has become regrettably typical for the Fedora project, the first Fedora 21 beta is well behind schedule. According to the current schedule on the Fedora wiki, the final version will arrive about a month late, on 9 December. That is if nothing goes wrong during the beta testing phase that's just started.

The Salix Live team is proud to announce the immediate release of Salix Live Xfce 14.1. We haven't had a live release for quite a while, this being our first official live release in more than two years. During the last few months there has been a lot of action behind the scenes to get this ready. The live system creation scripts that we were using up to the 13.37 release (called SaLT), while originally created with the idea to become a one-stop solution for creating our live releases without much trouble, had become a burden to use. After a lot of trying to get them work with newer releases, we decided that we should switch to a better, easier to use system. This is based on the Slackware Live Scripts, which is also what powers other Slackware-based live systems as well.

Diamond Systems released the EMX standard in 2011 as an industry standard supported by its EmbeddedXpress.org organization. The only EMX format SBC we’ve seen so far, however, is Diamond’s Intel Atom E680T-based Altair SBC, which is a true single-board design. Now, Diamond is offering a ruggedized, EMX-sized, sandwich-style SBC that incorporates COM Express Basic modules powered by Intel’s 3rd Generation “Ivy Bridge” Core CPUs. The “Vega” SBC is designed for rugged industrial, medical, on-vehicle, and military applications, and is also offered as part of a rugged “Raptor-Vega” embedded PC (see farther below)

Micro/sys unveiled an EPIC-sized “SBC4661? SBC that combines a Freescale i.MX6 Quad SoC with a Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA, and offers extensive camera support. The last time we heard from Micro/sys, George W. Bush was president, and Intel still had a processor architecture called XScale. Like the circa-2008, XScale-based RCB1626 single board computer, the new SBC4661 runs Linux and uses the StackableUSB expansion interface.

Securing the cloud isn't just about protecting the network layer from external attacks; it's also about being able to detect fraudulent activities running on the cloud. At the OpenStack Summit here, a group of researchers presented their findings on how to use the OpenStack Ceilometer project—used primarily for billing and metering of cloud usage—to detect fraud.

It turns out that we like cookie cutter distros, except when we don’t. We like a newly adopted distro to work exactly the way the one we were using before worked, except when we don’t. We want to be able to move back and forth between Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Debian with ease, without having to learn slightly new ways of doing things on each distro, except when we don’t.

openSUSE 13.2 being a much anticipated release just got a minor bump of version .1 but don’t be fooled by that, it is a massive release. openSUSE 13.2 is released with kernel 3.16, GNOME 3.14.1, KDE 4.14 and many other amazing features. I am assuming that you are already running it like me but not able to figure out how to do some of the basic starters or just want to recheck or reconfirm few things.
