Google’s Android Wear operating system got very real last week. Google executives demonstrated the platform to 6,000 developers and press at the company’s annual Google I/O conference in San Francisco on Wednesday.

I have used various Linux desktop environments over the years: GNOME, KDE, LXDE and XFCE. As for the best Linux desktop? Each experience has its advantages. Some Linux desktops offer lots of glamour and neat effects, while others provide a solid (be it simpler) user experience without making the end user feel like they’re using a desktop from the late 20th century.
Manage Linux Containers with Docker on UbuntuThis guide explains how to install Docker and manage virtual machines effectively. Docker is a Open Source Linux virtualistaion platform for developers and system administrators to build, deploy, and execute distributed applications easily. Docker consists of the Docker Engine, a light runtime and virtualisation layer, tools to package and version virtual machines similar to a sourcecode repository and Docker Hub, a service in the cloud to share applications and automate workflow. Docker allows applications quickly assembled from components and eliminates friction between development environments, quality control and production.
By relaxing its rather constrictive membership process, The Python Software Foundation is starting to uncoil. And Nick Coghlan, Provisioning Architect in Red Hat Engineering Operations, couldn't be happier.Coghlan recently earned a seat on the Foundation's Board of Directors, where he'll help oversee the open source programming language's governing body. He assumes his position at a critical juncture for Python. Many high-profile Linux distributions are beginning to offer Python 3 by default, encouraging developers to transition to the latest version as Python 2 support dwindles. And the PSF is altering its membership structure—making joining a much more straightforward matter for developers all over the world.read more

Linux has long been both the cloud and the datacenter's favorite operating system, but it wasn't until CoreOS came along that anyone designed a Linux just for the cloud and datacenter. If you manage a cloud or a datacenter, chances are you run CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), or Ubuntu. These are all great server Linux distributions, but none of them were designed to be deployed over hundreds or thousands of servers at once. Now there is such a distribution: CoreOS.
Debian Squeeze (6.0) is the so named "Old Stable" branch of Debian, the official support for this version ended in April 2014. Squeeze is still used on many servers, so a group of Debian developers decided to provide security patches for a longer timespan for this release. These so called LTS updates (LTS = Long Term Support) are not available on the normal Debian update repository and not every user might be aware that he wont get these updates automatically. The following short guide explains how to enable the LTS repository and install the updates.
