Memory-handling oddity from the age of the 286 has been around since ‘pretty much the original release of Linux’ Linus Torvalds has given the world the first release candidate of version 5.10 of the Linux kernel and called out what he’s labelled an historic change – the removal of an addressing tool that appears to have been around for nearly 30 years, sparked a nasty bug a decade ago but has since been made redundant by chipmakers.…

But can Nvidia play nice with Apple, Linux, and other ARM partners?
I’m not sure we talk about Linux enough. For those of us who have grown up in open source, as well as those new to open source, we all owe a huge debt of gratitude to the pioneering work by the Linux community. Linux, after all, was the early poster child for what open source meant, and what it could mean for individuals, businesses, and governments.But the Linux community, including its gravitational center, Linus Torvalds, has also shaped the way open source works today. From Git to organizational structure (maintainers, committers, etc.), Linux has either directly established or indirectly influenced how open source communities operate. It’s therefore worth reviewing some of the ways Linux paved the way for open source, generally, as detailed in The Linux Foundation’s 2020 Linux Kernel History Report.To read this article in full, please click here

Lots of love for AMD and POWER 10 and a hint of some Google's operational code making it into future releases Linus Torvalds has released a new version of the Linux kernel.…
The last decade of programming has seen a number of revolutionary transformations. One has arisen from a cluster of practices around devops, which aligns development and operations teams into a shared work process, and continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), in which devops teams deliver constant incremental updates to a codebase. Another transformation has come from the related move from monolithic codebases to cloud-based microservices running in containers managed by orchestration platforms like Kubernetes.To read this article in full, please click here
