Podcast Season 5 Episode 4
Title: Muphry's Law
In this episode: OpenSUSE 12.3 is out, Red Hat takes ownership of Java 6, SecureBoot is coming to FreeBSD and Ubuntu ditches Wayland for Mir. We report back on our challenge from a couple of episodes ago, come up with a new challenge, and discuss IT education in our Open Ballot.
Alert! Buy Linux Format on Google Play.
What's in the show:
OpenSUSE 12.3 has been released - many congratulations to the distro team. Red Hat takes ownership of the Java 6 community. SecureBoot is coming to FreeBSD. Ubuntu launches Mir, a replacement for Wayland. Gnome and Kylin (Chinese) become official versions of Ubuntu. Dell's Project Sputnik, a powerful ultrabook bundled with Ubuntu 12.04, is now available in the UK (and lots of other European countries). Piston (not the Steambox) is available now in the US. The Humble Indie Bundle 5 for Android (and Linux) is still going. Pwn2Own finished with record payoffs and Google's Pwnium 3 finishes with none.
