Microsoft to show Bash on Linux running on Windows 10

However, given the latest session leak, it seems that Bash on Ubuntu will figure in somehow. Bash is a Linux shell. It’s a set of add-ons and plug-ins that are a superset of the Bourne shell, and provide users with the ability to employ text commands to evoke specific actions (and/or to use scripts to do so).

Here come some games!

Red Hook Studios, the developers of Darkest Dungeon, a gothic roguelike turn-based RPG (role-playing game), have announced today, March 28, 2016, the availability of a public Beta build for the Linux platform.

Fedora 24 Alpha released! – No Mainstream Wayland Distro in 2016?

We have decided not to make Wayland, the next generation graphic stack, the default in Fedora 24 Workstation. However, Wayland remains available as an option, and the Workstation team would greatly appreciate your help in testing. Our goal is one full release where the non-default Wayland option works seamlessly, or reasonably close thereto. At that point we will make Wayland the default with X11 as the fallback option.

Arch Linux – News: Required update to pacman-5.0.1 before 2016-04-23

In order for the use of hooks to be started, we require all users to have updated to at least pacman-5.0.1 before 2016-04-23. Pacman-5.0.1 was released on 2016-02-23, so this will have given everyone two months to update their system.

Stali distribution smashes assumptions about Linux

Stali’s project head, Anselm R. Garbe (a developer currently working at BMW, and creator of the DWM window manager), believes static linking works out better for most common use cases. The most obvious benefit is that static binaries have a smaller memory and on-disk footprint. Static binaries also claim to be faster, although there are no benchmarks as yet to show how Stali performs against other distributions.
