Start64!Google is being tight-lipped about when the 64-bit version of Android will be released, but Linux development group Linaro has built a version of the open-source operating system so mobile applications can be written and tested by manufacturers and developers rushing to catch up with Apple.

Start64!For those curious about the performance advantages of using 64-bit Ubuntu Linux over 32-bit Ubuntu on a modern Intel laptop, here are 32-bit vs. 64-bit benchmarks of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on the ASUS Zenbook Prime.

Start64!Many of you already know about this, but since there are many users who are upgrading from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04, they might not be aware of what they need to do when a package, like Google Earth, fails to install because it depends on ia32-libs (on Ubuntu 64bit).

Start64!Zorin is a Linux distro especially for people that want to try Linux that have previously used Windows. Hate Windows 8? Ready to finally try Linux. Zorin may be the Linux distro you've been waiting for.

Start64!I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.13.1-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.13.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20140129).

Start64!Microsoft has announced recently that an updated version of the stable Skype 4.2 free Internet telephony application is now available for download, fixing various issues and crashes found in the previous version (4.2.0.11).

SteamOS review - Lovely jubbly!

Start64!Normally, my game-related content goes into the dedicated Gaming section. But this is a special moment. SteamOS is not just a game. It's a complete, Debian-based distro, and so it merits its own review, right here, alongside all other flavors and editions I've tested in the past. Moreover, some of the stuff will get technical, in the upcoming sequel articles, which makes the Software category the best candidate for this.

Start64!While the Linux x32 ABI has been talked about since 2011 and there's been mainline Linux kernel support since 2012 and x32 support within other programs has trickled in, there still isn't any widespread interested in this ABI intended for use on 64-bit processors while using 32-bit pointers.

Start64!For those NVIDIA gaming customers running Microsoft Windows 8.1 that have been thinking about giving Valve's SteamOS Linux-based gaming platform a try, here are some early benchmarks of the SteamOS 1.0 beta that compare the performance to Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro x64 on multiple NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards.
