Dan Horák announced a last evening, December 15th, the immediate availability for download of the Fedora 16 operating system for IBM System z (s390x) 64-bit systems. Fedora 16, codenamed Verne, comes with a lot of new features and updated packages. Among them we can mention Linux kernel 3.1, GNOME 3.2.1 desktop environment with the GNOME Shell interface and the KDE Software Compilation 4.7.2 environment.
Fusion 16 Beta has been announced by Valent Turkovic, a developer that also put together Fusion Linux 14, a distribution which is essentially a Fedora Remix.

After recently comparing Ubuntu 11.10 and Fedora 16 for boot speed and power consumption, up now are various Linux benchmarks under both of these distributions. This is a comparison of the 64-bit performance of Ubuntu 11.10 vs. Fedora 16 in an out-of-the-box configuration.
There are going to be two openSUSE 12.1 reviews on Dedoimedo this autumn. This first one, on my high-end laptop with a proper Nvidia card, 64-bit and whatnot. The second will target a much older laptop, a T60p beast with a processor capable of 32-bit instruction sets only and a graphics card that runs on coal. Today, it's i5, dual boot, external disk installation, virtualization, desktop effects, and all that.
The 64 bit version of the Microsoft SQL Server ODBC Driver for Linux provides robust data access to Microsoft SQL Server. It allows native C and C++ applications to leverage the standard ODBC API and connect to Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. Microsoft SQL Server ODBC Driver for Linux also comes with powerful tools - sqlcmd and bcp.
Takeaway: If you visit the Firefox website and download the build for Linux, you will receive a 32-bit version of the browser. For someone trying to avoid compatibility libraries, there has to be another way — and there is.
