Bluestar Gives Arch Linux a Celestial Glow

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Using most any Arch Linux distro usually involves balancing the desire for hands-on control of the operating system from scratch against the attraction of convenient installation and maintenance processes. Bluestar Linux is one of the few Arch distros that gets the balancing act right. Bluestar Linux is a GNU/Linux distribution that features up-to-date packages, an impressive range of desktop and multimedia software in the default installation, and a live desktop DVD. The live session capability is one of Bluestar’s more enticing qualities.

Microsoft Offers New Tool to Grow Linux in Windows

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Microsoft has released an open source tool that makes it easier for programmers and developers to run Linux on Windows 10. The new tool also helps Linux distribution maintainers bring their distros to the Windows Store to run on Windows 10’s WSL. Microsoft developed the project for distribution maintainers and for developers who want to create custom Linux distributions to run on WSL. The development team hopes open-sourcing this project will help increase community engagement through bringing more distros to the Microsoft Store.

Linux Foundation, Intel launch open source IoT hypervisor

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Offers streamlined code for embedded usage.

NEWSBYTE: The Linux Foundation has unveiled plans for a new open source project to provide streamlined embedded hypervisors for IoT devices.

Called Acrn, the project has been assisted by Intel, which contributed code and engineering. The main thrust of the project is to create small, flexible virtual machines.

ACRN comprises two main components: the hypervisor and its device model, complete with I/O mediators. The Linux-based hypervisor can run many ‘guest’ operating systems at the same time.

The Foundation said that developers would benefit from ACRN’s small, real-time footprint, which is flexible enough to accommodate different use cases and takes into account safety-critical workloads.

It added that by consolidating a diverse set of IoT workloads with mixed criticality onto a single platform would help reduce development and deployment costs, enabling a more streamlined system architecture.

“ACRN will have a Linux-based service OS and the ability to simultaneously run multiple types of guest operating systems, providing a powerful solution for workload consolidation,” said Imad Sousou, corporate VP and general manager of Intel’s Open Source Technology Center.

“This new project delivers a flexible, lightweight hypervisor, designed to take real-time and safety-critical concerns into consideration and drive meaningful innovation for the IoT space.”

Safety-critical systems

Angelo Corsaro, CTO of edge computing specialist Adlink Technology, said that the lack of open source virtualisation solutions for embedded, real-time, safety-critical systems has greatly hindered consolidation, along with the most interesting forms of fog computing.

“The release of ACRN as a Linux Foundation project by Intel will be a game changer, as it brings the agility and manageability of virtualised environments into embedded and real-time systems. This will be a key enabler toward making the Industrial Internet of Things happen for real,” he said.

Internet of Business says

It’s good news that ACRN will incorporate input from the open source, embedded, and IoT developer communities. Meanwhile, the Linux Foundation has said it will encourage collaboration and code contributions to the project – yet more evidence that the IoT is all about collaboration, at every stage of connected technology and data programmes.

Deepin Desktop Props Up Pardus Linux

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The Pardus Linux distro offers an inviting computing experience with both old and new options. However, a dual development path narrows its user appeal. Pardus suffers from sharing its personality — splitting its attention between an enterprise edition and a community version. While they both share the same distro name, they come from different developer teams. Pardus began as a Gentoo-based project before rebranding with a new identity. Prior to 2012, the original developers lost funding. Then the Turkish government began sponsoring the OS.

Kali Linux Security App Lands in Microsoft Store

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Kali Linux has become available in the Microsoft Store. Windows 10 users can download and install the Kali Linux app onto the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Microsoft last summer announced that WSL, which makes it possible to run operating systems like Ubuntu, would become a fully supported part of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The availability of Kali Linux is especially appealing to penetration testers and security professionals whose toolsets have been limited due to enterprise compliance standards.

When It’s Time for a Linux Distro Change

It’s common for Linux users to hop between distributions and survey the field, and I recently reached a point where I had to seriously rethink the one I was using most of the time. Between hardware compatibility issues with my old standby and some discouraging missteps with other go-to choices, I felt the time had come to reassess my pool of preferred distributions and repopulate it from scratch. As my journey progressed, I realized that as often as I’ve discussed the field of Linux-based systems, I had not addressed how to pick one out.

[Update: Demo video] ‘Linux on Galaxy’ will bring the desktop OS to Samsung phones and DeX

The idea of using a smartphone as a full desktop PC when connected to an external monitor isn’t new. The now-dead Ubuntu for phones and tablets had ‘Convergence’ as one of its main features, allowing you to run full desktop Linux apps when you connected a keyboard and mouse (and display, if your device supported that).

Chrome OS may soon be able to run Linux applications in a container

Cash For Apps: Make money with android app

Even though Chrome OS is based on Linux (Gentoo Linux, to be exact), you can’t run traditional desktop Linux applications. One solution to this problem is Crouton, a script that sets up a chroot of Ubuntu or Debian Linux on top of Chrome OS. While this does allow many people to use Chrome OS who otherwise couldn’t, it’s a hacky solution and requires enabling Developer Mode (which turns off most of Chrome OS’ security features).
