When the Space Shuttle program shut down, I have to admit, it deflatedmy excitement about space exploration just a bit. Although it's not fair topin the future of manned missions to space on a fleet of aging craftsbuilt in the 1980s, the Space Shuttle represented the latest step in aprocess that would get us to other planets.
Red Hat OpenStack, the open source company's next big product, will grab a massive spotlight during Red Hat Summit (June 11-14, Boston).

Roboteq launched a Kickstarter project to build an I/O add-in card for robotics navigation that stacks atop a Linux-based Raspberry Pi board. The RIO (Raspberry IO) is based on a 32-bit STM32 microcontroller, and includes a 3A DC/DC converter, several serial interfaces, a CAN interface, 21 GPIO, and an optional module with an accelerometer, gyroscope, [...]
It's long been possible to run Windows instances on a Linux-based cloud and Linux instances on a Windows-based cloud. What's not so common is for Linux companies and Microsoft to work together to make this happen. But that's exactly what Microsoft and SUSE have been doing. And dogs and cats can live together! No, really, they can.
Mozilla released its first fully-baked simulation engine for Firefox OS, while the first Geeksphone “Keon” development phones for the open source Linux-based mobile operating system remain sold out. Firefox OS Simulator 3.0 adds rotation and geolocation API simulations, faster boot-times, and a push-to-device feature that lets users transfer apps to a developer phone. Firefox OS [...]

Descent|OS is going through a new phase in development, where it will run under an 8-month release cycle, with one service release halfway through the cycle. This will allow for a more stable system, and bug fixes to be deployed quicker while development for Descent|OS 5 goes on.
We've seen a lot of hysteria around Google Glass and the belief that people can secretly record you. I spoke to the project's technical lead, someone who has been working on wearable computers since the 90s, and I'm here to tell you that hysteria is completely misplaced. If someone wants to secretly record you, there are a lot more sneaky ways than Google Glass (which is sitting on your face in plain sight).
Michel Dänzer of AMD has provided a set of patches that should provide for the necessary patterns and intrinsics for AMD to round out GLSL 1.30 support within their RadeonSI open-source Gallium3D driver for Radeon HD 7000/8000 series graphics cards...

In part one of this tutorial, I introduced the integration between the hierarchical data structures of the M database and the hierarchical structures of the Node.js language.Here, in part two, I focus on the fact that this integration is equivalent to incorporating persistance storage in the Node.js language using a data model similar to JSON structures. This built upon a proven database that is known to deliver high performace for demanding applications.
Just short of two weeks after the big release of Ubuntu 13.04 ‘Raring Ringtail’, I had Debian 7.0 ‘Wheezy’ arrive on my desk for testing. I have a huge amount of respect for Debian, as do most other Linux users. It’s been around since the very beginnings of the Linux revolution in 1993, just short of 20 years.

After all, when our own government policy is to hand those drugmakers incredibly powerful monopolies on life-saving pharmaceuticals, we've actually created the incentives ourselves for such activity to take place:
