who cares? I guess if I was 12 years old, this would be big news.

China has started intensive testing phase for its giant radio telescope, which measures 500m (1,640ft) across, in search for alien life. The colossal dish is said to have received its first signals from space. Chinese scientists expect to calibrate the instrument to make it fully operational in...

"Odds are it's just a matter of configuration of the storage controller options in the BIOS and picking the correct Linux kernel storage controller driver for it. If it's a whole new controller driver that we need to write, great, we can do it if that's needed and someone provides the specs for it (that's what the Linux Driver Project does all the time.),” said greg Kroah-Hartman.

The takeaway is: no, neither Microsoft, nor Lenovo are deliberately locking Linux users out of their laptops. It’s just a matter of figuring out what’s wrong. And that’s something Linux community is very good at. Instead of vilifying companies, we should investigate the problem and try to fix it.

It’s actually a good story. I recall my very early days with Linux, when it would be newsworthy if you were fortunate enough to come across a laptop that worked with Linux, out of the box. Times have changed. Nowadays, if you come across one random laptop that doesn’t work with Linux, it becomes news.

“We have come a long way :)” said Kroah-Hartman.
Reports that Microsoft and Lenovo are deliberately locking Linux out of certain laptops are incorrect.

There are still devices which exist that cannot get Linux loaded onto them due to licensing restrictions brought on by Microsoft.

Nextcloud is teaming up with Canonical and WDLabs (an internal team of innovators to explore new ideas) to bring ‘private-cloud-in-a-box’ devices to the market. It’s the continuation of the work Nextcloud team was doing with WDLabs, before splitting up with ownCloud.

Nextcloud Box is essentially a reference device that uses Raspberry Pi for compute and network, and WD hard drive for storage. Ubuntu core is the operating system and Nextcloud is the file sync software.

Jos Poortvliet, head of marketing and communication at Nextcloud, told us in a phone interview that the source code of Nextcloud and Ubuntu Core is available publicly. Any hardware vendor can take this design to create a private cloud consumer device.

Do you think fork is a good thing or a bad thing?
Every time there is a fork, and I think forks are actually good things, it means somebody sees a need and a technical reason to do something different from the standard kernel. But most forks are failures. They find that the things they needed were not actually worth doing and as a result, most forks …

The 3.5mm jack is robust, familiar, secure, well-documented, and so on — we’ve seen the argument play out over the last year. You know why it’s good: because it works reliably, worldwide, and with millions of devices. Without Apple’s permission.

See, it’s that last part that must bother them. The idea that someone, somewhere, is doing something with an iPhone that they haven’t anticipated, like making a thermometer or payment system or 3D scanner. Someone who hasn’t paid for a license to attach that thing to their phone.

Apple is taking the first step to make sure that never happens. They’re able to do this because no one can do anything about it. They’re in a position of immense power and they’re using that power to eliminate something good and replace it with something that makes them money. It’s not a conspiracy theory, it’s a business plan.

A Linux & Open Source web magazine
Introduction

Veda (वेद ) is a Sanskrit word which means ‘Knowledge’. “Linux” Veda is a web-magazine to share and spread knowledge about Linux and Open Source technologies.

We cover tutorials, interviews, in-depth analysis, daily news and reviews. While the focus is on Linux and Open Source technologies we do have an ‘off-topic’ section under which we cover stories of importance, even if they are not directly related to Linux or Open Source.

Our core focus is success stories, where we publishes articles on Linux or Open Source technologies being deployed in different environments and set-ups.
