Linux Now Dominates Azure

An anonymous reader shares a report: Three years ago, Mark Russinovich, CTO of Azure, Microsoft’s cloud program, said, “One in four [Azure] instances are Linux.” Then, in 2017, it was 40 percent Azure virtual machines (VM) were Linux. Today, Scott Guthrie, Microsoft’s executive vice president of the cloud and enterprise group, said in an interview, “Slightly over half of Azure VMs are Linux. That’s right. Microsoft’s prize cloud, Linux, not Windows Server, is now the most popular operating system. Windows Server isn’t going to be making a come back. Every month, Linux goes up,” Guthrie said. And it’s not just Azure users who are turning to Linux. “Native Azure services are often running on Linux,” Guthrie added. “Microsoft is building more of these services. For example, Azure’s Software Defined Network (SDN) is based on Linux.” It’s not just on Azure that Microsoft is embracing Linux. “Look at our simultaneous release

After Torvalds’ apology, the Linux community is adopting a new code of conduct

Following years of questionable behavior and ranting, the grandfather of Linux Linus Torvalds issued an apology and announced his intention to take a break from kernel work. Now the Linux community is adopting a new code of conduct to help make the environment more welcoming. Based on the Contributor Covenant, the new Code of Conduct seeks to make participating in the community “a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation”.

Linux Mint 19.1 named ‘Tessa’

Linux Mint is a rather great operating system. The distribution is based on the fabulous Ubuntu, so it is very stable and has plenty of compatible packages. Not to mention, the Mint developers focus heavily on the user experience. Linux Mint isn’t just designed for Linux experts (although they can totally use it), but beginners too — it is easy to start using straight away. The developers have a long history of using female names as the code name for each version of the operating system. For instance, in the past, they have used “Tara,” “Sylvia,” and “Sonya,” to name… [Continue Reading]

Zorin OS 12.4 Linux distribution is here — switch from Microsoft Windows 10 now!

I’m not a Microsoft “hater” at all. With that said, I am not a fan of the state of Windows 10. The privacy issues alone are a reason to avoid the operating system, but that is hardly the only concern. For instance, Microsoft has been pre-loading tiles for games like Candy Crush and other apps — a move that shows major disrespect towards its customers. Not to mention, the “Insiders” program is just a way for the company to get free beta testing — Microsoft is all too happy to treat Windows 10 users as guinea pigs. It is all… [Continue Reading]

Linux Mint developers planning big Cinnamon 4.0 improvements

Linux Mint is one of the most popular Linux-based desktop operating systems for a reason — it’s really good. By leveraging the excellent Ubuntu for its base, and offering a top-notch user experience, success is pretty much a guarantee. While the distribution primarily focuses on two desktop environments — Mate and Cinnamon — the latter is really the star of the show. Cinnamon is great because it uses a classic WIMP interface that users love, while also feeling modern. With Cinnamon 3.8, the Linux Mint Team focused on improving the DE’s performance, and today, the team shares that it is… [Continue Reading]

Canonical releases Minimal Ubuntu for servers, containers and the cloud

There’s a new version of Ubuntu on the block — Minimal Ubuntu. It’s been stripped right back to the bone to leave a tiny footprint, and these back Linux distros  should boot 40 percent faster than a standard Ubuntu server image. Despite the reduced footprint size, Minimal Ubuntu retains all of Ubuntu’s standard tools (such as ssh, apt and snapd) and maintain full compatibility. Designed for cloud developers and ops, Canonical says that the release is intended for completely automated operations, and as such much of the user-friendliness has been stripped out, but it’s still ideal for used in KVM,… [Continue Reading]

Ubuntu Linux-powered Dell Precision 7530 and 7730 ‘Developer Edition’ laptops finally available

Back in May, we reported on several Ubuntu Linux-powered Dell Precision “Developer Edition” mobile workstations that would be released in 2018. At the time, only one of these laptops was available for purchase — the Precision 3530. Of course, the needs of all Ubuntu users cannot be met with just one machine. Thankfully, starting today, two more of these laptops become available for purchase. The Dell Precision 7530 and 7730, as they are called, are 15-inch and 17-inch laptops, respectively. “When it comes to pure power, these machines are unmatched. In fact, the 7730 is also the first AI/ML ready mobile… [Continue Reading]
