HP’s new Dev One, powered by System76’s popular Pop!_OS Linux distribution, empowers developers to create their ideal work experience with multiple tools to help them perform tasks at peak efficiency not available on other computing platforms.
This distro is a fully functional yet minimal KDE Plasma desktop experience with an emphasis on usability and performance. It already has a wide range of hardware support out of the box.
Linux provides user options for a wide variety of desktop environments, making it a much richer computing platform compared to macOS and Microsoft Windows. That benefit is on display with this month’s distro releases and updates.
The Linux Foundation and the Open Source Software Security Foundation brought together over 90 executives from 37 companies and government leaders from the NSC, ONCD, CISA, NIST, DOE, and OMB to reach a consensus on key actions to take to improve the resiliency and security of open-source software.
Without a detailed accounting of open-source code running within their software, companies have no way to monitor software policies, licenses, vulnerabilities, and versions. That means IT departments are clueless about the overall health of the open-source components they use.
If you’ve run any operating system for any length of time, you will probably have encountered strange phenomena. Here are a few routes you can traverse to track down suspicious behavior on your Linux system.
Computer security only happens when software is kept up to date. That should be a basic tenet for business users and IT departments. Apparently, it isn’t. At least for some Linux users who ignore installing patches, critical or otherwise.
Canonical's Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, aka "Jammy Jellyfish," is now generally available with features that raise the bar for open source -- from cloud, to edge, to IoT and workstations. Ubuntu enterprise users will find hardcore improvements in security and performance for IoT and cloud computing connection...

RebornOS is a Linux distro hopper’s dream computing machine. It is also a great alternative for seasoned Linux users looking for a new option and for newcomers who do not mind tinkering.
Two key open-source projects already help maintain data observability issues; be sure you do not get stuck with a Dirty Pipe situation; human errors are a major culprit in successful cybersecurity breakdowns; and Wind River's latest release.
Foundries.io and Arduino are joining forces to make embedded Linux-powered internet of things and edge computing devices more secure. The deal will combine technological innovations with Foundries' cloud-native development and deployment enterprise solutions for secure IoT and edge devices. Those so...
Old-time Linux is back again. It is not uncommon for open-source software to stop in its tracks. Community and team-based projects sometimes lose developers, enthusiasm, or funding. Hundreds of Linux distributions exist. Some come and go all the time, often unnoticed. Usually, others take their plac...
ExTiX is a Linux distribution that knows where it is going but falls short of being there yet. It is, however, well on its way. Developer Arne Exton calls his ExTiX OS "The Ultimate Linux system." Especially with the Deepin desktop edition, he is close to living up to that assessment.
New developments this month include a key acquisition to bolster and expand cloud computing. Keeper Security takes a big step toward integrating better security and cloud encryption architecture. Also significant is StormForge's release this month of a new solution for cloud environments with machin...
