In this episode: Linux servers are responsible for a huge DDoS botnet. HP has released its own Linux. Sarah Sharp quits the Linux kernel community, and Matthew Garrett too. Raspberry Pis are about to take a trip to the International Space Space station and ZFS is coming to Ubuntu. We’ve also got some great finds, lovely Voice of the Masses and a Brand New Section.
What’s in the show:
The XOR DDoS botnet runs on Linux. Following Microsoft’s lead, HP is releasing its own Linux Distro, OpenSwitch, built for its switches. The kernel developer behind parts of the USB 3 controller, Sarah Sharp, quits the Linux kernel community because of its lack of personal respect. In sympathy with Sarah’s post, Matthew Garrett (see this month’s issue for our for our interview with him), has decided to go it alone, even releasing his own kernel tree. Several Raspberry Pis have been handed over to the ESA in the first step of their journey to the International Space Station. And the ace filesystem, ZFS, is going to be standard in Ubuntu in due course.
