A recent announcement was made stating that the Reiser4 file system, successor to the ReiserFS, was ported to the 3.15 Linux kernel. So, I ask you, how relevant is Reiser4? If you ask me, not very. I feel that this file system (among a few others) just needs to go away.

The federal government is the single largest purchaser of code in the world. So why is this code—taxpayer-funded and integral to the day-to-day working of our democracy—so often hidden from public view? There are two sides to answering that question: Why does the government so often build on closed platforms, and once built, why isn't the code released to the public?read more

Windows and Linux communities used to virtually battle each other regarding the superiority of one platform or the other, but that is no longer happening, at least not at the same scale. One of the reasons for that might be that Linux is actually gaining ground.

For Careers in Open Source Week here at Opensource.com, I thought I would turn to the people I work with everyday to see how open source has changed their view on things. I interviewed Melissa Lefebvre who joined our Koha support team almost a year ago after working on Evergreen, another open source ILS system, for four years as Project Manager at Bibliomation, Inc., a large public and school consortium in Connecticut.read more

Oxford Dictionary got 171,476 words. I'm #cracking my #Wifi #WPA2 password at 159159186.00 PMK's per second. Need I say more? There are just too many guides on Cracking Wifi WPA/WPA2 passwords using different methods. Everyone has their own take on it. Personally, I think there’s no right or wrong way of cracking a Wireless Access Point. Following way is my way and I found it extremely efficient and fast during my tests for Cracking Wifi WPA/WPA2 passwords using pyrit cowpatty in Kali Linux where I attacked with Dictionary using either cuda or calpp (cal++) and at the same time I used WiFite to fast track a few things. This whole process was used in Kali Linux and it took me less than 10 minutes to crack a Wifi WPA/WPA2 password using pyrit cowpatty WiFite combination using my laptop running a AMD ATI 7500HD Graphics card.

MYIR announced a sandwich-style single board computer that runs Linux on a Freescale i.MX28x SoC and features -40 to 85°C operation and a CAN bus interface. MYIR specializes in low-power ARM single board computers (SBCs) and computer-on-modules (COMs), with the latter including the MYC-SAM9X5-V2 (using Atmel’s ARM9-based AT91SAM9X5) and MYC-AM335X (using TI’s Cortex-A8 based Sitara AM335x).
