Linus Torvalds suspends key Linux developer - Network World - http://www.networkworld.com/news...
"An argument between developers of some of the most basic parts of Linux turned heated this week, resulting in a prominent Red Hat employee and code contributor being banned from working on the Linux kernel. Kay Sievers, a well-known open-source software engineer, is a key developer of systemd, a system management framework for Linux-based operating systems. Systemd is currently used by several prominent Linux distributions, including two of the most prominent enterprise distros, Red Hat and SUSE. It was recently announced that Ubuntu would adopt systemd in future versions as well." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

"Kvasir is a web-based application with its goal to assist “at-a-glance” penetration testing. Disparate information sources such as vulnerability scanners, exploitation frameworks, and other tools are homogenized into a unified database structure. This allows security testers to accurately view the data and make good decisions on the next attack steps. Multiple testers can work together on the same data allowing them to share important collected information. There’s nothing worse than seeing an account name pass by and finding out your co-worker cracked it two days ago but didn’t find anything “important” so it was never fully documented." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

"The OpenZFS project was announced today. According to Justin Gibbs of the FreeBSD Foundation: this is a cross-platform effort to ensure the continued evolution of the ZFS file system. For developers and users of FreeBSD, the formation of OpenZFS clarifies the future of ZFS support for our platform. The FreeBSD project is now an equal partner in defining the course for ZFS. OpenZFS combines the man power of the FreeBSD, Illumos, Linux, and MacOS communities to provide a level of test coverage, feature development, documenation, and support that wasn't possible with our separate efforts. Most importantly, OpenZFS will improve platform interoperability and reduce fragmentation of ZFS implementations. Today is an exciting day for ZFS and the FreeBSD platform. I encourage you to browse http://www.open-zfs.org and to get involved. You are officially invited to help make the future of OpenZFS!" - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

How Linux Conquered the Fortune 500 - May. 6, 2013
"In 1999, Bill Gates famously wrote off Linux -- free, collaboratively written software -- as a threat to Windows only in the relatively tiny "student and hobbyist market." But by last year Microsoft itself had become one of the top 20 corporate contributors to Linux, writing code to make sure its products work well with the ubiquitous software -- a sign of just how thoroughly Linux has conquered the enterprise." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

Hack Your SHIELD: Why We’re Releasing Open Source Software for SHIELD
"Most gaming devices are black boxes. You use the games and apps the device’s manufacturer approves. No tinkering. End of story. That’s not where we wanted to go with SHIELD, which began shipping last week. That’s why we’ve released the open-source code developers and modders can use to customize SHIELD’s entire operating system. So, just to recap, this is a device you already can use to play mobile games, watch movies, and listen to music. You can stream games from your PC with our PC Game Streaming feature, now in BETA. You can even use it to fly an AR.Parrot drone." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet
