After a long wait, the Korora 24 GNU/Linux distribution has been released, based, as its version number suggests, on many of the technologies included in the popular Fedora 24 operating system.
While there are many Linux-based operating systems to choose from nowadays, not all of them are great. Quite frankly, there are probably only a handful of distributions that I would truly recommend.
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.
On June 2, Fedora Project, through Peter Robinson, had the great pleasure of announcing the immediate availability for download of the Fedora 22 Linux operating system for the PowerPC and IBM System z (s390) 64-bit hardware architectures.
The 32-bit architecture is slowing going away, but not too many developers are keen to let it go. A proposal is being made so that Fedora 23 will only be released with 64-bit images.
Operating system: Fedora 21 64-bit
File name: Fedora 21 64-bit.ova (Format: OVF 1.0)
Dan Horák has announced on January 8 that the Fedora 20 (Heisenbug) Linux operating system is now available for download for the IBM System z (s390x) 64-bit systems.
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.
About a month ago, Intel released a tool that allows Linux users to easily upgrade to the latest Intel graphics drivers. The tool comes with a repository used for the driver updates and it's available for Ubuntu (12.10 and 12.04) and Fedora (17 and 18). The repository had some multi-arch issues on Ubuntu 64bit, but they seem to have been fixed, at least according to my test.

Dan Horák announced that the Fedora 18 (Spherical Cow) operating system for IBM System z (s390x) 64-bit systems is now available for download.
I recently switched over to Fedora for my main Linux desktop. This video is a basic overview of the operating system and some comparisons to Ubuntu.
Yesterday I was excited to receive a task to install ADT for Eclipse and Android SDK on my machine , I thought it would be a “piece of cake”, so with a high level of excitement I have started…. As I use my laptop with Fedora 17 (64bit) for all my developments, I have decided that I will put my Android Development Tools in it as well.
We are please to announce the 64-bit edition of the Hanthana Linux 17 today. - Hanthana is a Linux based operating system and a Fedora remix suitable for desktop and laptop users. Hanthana comes to you in the form of a LiveDVD for regular PC (i686 & x86_64 architectures) systems. You can run Hanthana Operating System directly from the LiveDVD and check out each and every feature before installing it on your hard disk.
Dan Horák proudly announced this past weekend, on June 29th, that the Fedora 17 (Beefy Miracle) operating system for IBM System z (s390x) 64-bit systems is now available for download.
THE RED HAT sponsored Fedora Linux distribution believes a 64-bit ARM architecture will prove to be the tipping point for ARM servers. - The Fedora Project, which is heavily sponsored by enterprise Linux vendor Red Hat, has seemingly been lagging behind Canonical's Ubuntu Linux distribution following a round of server announcements from Dell and HP professing certification for Ubuntu. However Jon Masters, principal software engineer at Red Hat and leader of Fedora's ARM effort told The INQUIRER that 64-bit ARM chips will prove to be the killer feature for ARM-based servers.
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.
