An update on ongoing Meltdown and Spectre work Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF 
Linux Baby
Last week, a series of critical vulnerabilities called Spectre and Meltdown were announced. Because of the nature of these issues, the solutions are complex and requires fixing delicate code. The fixes for Meltdown are mostly underway. The Meltdown fix for x86 is KPTI. KPTI has been merged into the mainline Linux tree and many stable trees, including the ones Fedora uses. Fixes for other arches are close to being done and should be available soon. Fixing Spectre is more difficult and requires fixes across multiple areas. READ MORE

Top 3 Linux Distributions That Just Work Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF 
Linux Baby
Twenty years ago, when I first started using Linux, finding a distribution that worked, out of the box, was an impossible feat. Not only did the installation take some serious mental acuity, configuring the software and getting connected to the Internet was often a challenge users were reluctant to attempt.

Today, things are quite different. Linux now offers distributions that anyone can use, right out of the box. But, even among those distros that “just work,” some rise to the top to stand as the best in breed. These particular flavors of Linux are perfect for users hoping to migrate away from Windows or mac OS and who don’t want to spend hours getting up to speed on how the platform works, or (more importantly) making the system perform as expected.

How Linux got to be Linux Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF 
Linux Baby
A unique trait of open source is that it's never truly EOL (End of Life). The disc images mostly remain online, and their licenses don't expire, so going back and installing an old version of Linux in a virtual machine and getting a precise picture of what progress Linux has made over the years is relatively simple.

Ubuntu 17.10 corrupting BIOS - many LENOVO laptops models Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF 
Linux Baby
SRU Justification

Impact: Many users are reporting issues with bios corruption with 17.10. This seems to stem from enabling the intel-spi-* drivers in the kernel, which don't appear to be ready for use on end-user machines.

Fix: Disable this driver.

Test Case: Fix has been verified by our HWE team on affected hardware.

Regression Potential: Minimal, it's unlikely anyone is actually doing anything which requires this driver.

Linux Journal Ceases Publication Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF 
Linux Baby
It looks like we’re at the end, folks. If all goes according to a plan we’d rather not have, the November issue of Linux Journal was our last.

The simple fact is that we’ve run out of money, and options along with it. We never had a wealthy corporate parent or deep pockets of our own, and that made us an anomaly among publishers, from start to finish. While we got to be good at flying close to the ground for a long time, we lost what little elevation we had in November, when the scale finally tipped irrevocably to the negative. READ MORE

Linux Baby
There's no official announcement published by the Linux Mint team at the moment of writing this article, but it shouldn't be long until the Linux Mint 18.3 "Sylvia" Cinnamon and MATE editions are published on the project's website, and you can download the ISO images right now from their main FTP mirror.
