To kick off the new year, the developers of the Debian-based siduction GNU/Linux distribution have announced the release and immediate availability of version 2017.1.0.
Tails 3.0 will require a 64-bit x86-64 compatible processor. As opposed to older versions of Tails, it will not work on 32-bit processors. We have waited for years until we felt it was the right time to do this switch. Still, this was a hard decision for us to make. Today, we want to explain why we eventually made this decision, how it will affect users, and when.
A few days after the announcement of Tails 2.7, the development team behind the popular amnesic incognito live system based on Debian GNU/Linux unveiled a few technical details about the next major release.
Debian is one of the most acclaimed and respected open-source projects, with over 1,400 contributors from all over the world, and the Debian GNU/Linux operating system is being used almost everywhere around us.
Earlier today, November 25, we've been informed by Arne Exton, the developer of several GNU/Linux and Android-x86 distributions that are available for download right here on Softpedia, about the release and immediate availability for download of his CruxEX 3.2 operating system.
Arne Exton, an independent GNU/Linux developer, known for many Linux kernel-based operating systems, posted an interesting tutorial a couple of days ago about how to install the latest Linux 4.1 LTS kernel on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, or Debian distros.
The Debian Installer team had the pleasure of announcing on March 27 that the second Release Candidate (RC) version of the Debian 8.0 "Jessie" installer is now available for download and testing. The RC2 version of the installer brings a great number of improvements and fixes.

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 (188.8.131.52).
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.
Hello, everyone! I’m writing from my hotel room here in Bellingham Washington where I’ve been attending the Linux Fest NorthWest all day, and managed to get 4.0 released on schedule! It’s only for 64-bit systems at the moment, mainly because that’s the only ISO I have here on this PC, but I’ll be finishing up Descent|OS for 32-bit systems and for powerpc and releasing them next week.
The 64-bit ARM (AArch64) port image of Debian/Ubuntu has surfaced. Debian-based Linux is now ready to play in a 64-bit ARM world, months ahead of any hardware appearing for the general public. Similar to x86_64, Linux is the first operating system ready for the new architecture.
A brief tutorial on how to get Minecraft running on Debian 64bit, I also cover how to create a ramdisk to load minecraft to so your game runs as smooth as can be.
The new version sees a number of important changes affecting graphics drivers. The x32-ABI promises the advantages of x86-64-CPUs without the overhead of 64-bit code. Btrfs is reported to be quicker, and Yama prevents processes from accessing each other's allocated memory.
The x32 ABI promises to make the advantages of x86-64 CPUs accessible while avoiding the overhead that comes with 64-bit code. Version 3.4 of the kernel will improve the power-saving capabilities of Xen. The new Yama module prevents processes from examining the memory of other processes.
The x32 effort, an undertaking to provide a native 32-bit ABI for x86_64 on Linux, is finally moving closer to fruition. Peter Anvin has published the set of x32 patches for the Linux kernel that are now up for review and comments.
