And while there have been complaints about LiMux, they mostly seem to concern compatibility with OpenOffice.org, which may well be resolved by switching to LibreOffice."

Linux.com - Sat, 23/08/2014 - 22:13

A Reddit thread posted earlier this week posed the question, “What if Linux distros were super heroes?” Would Ubuntu be Superman? We'll leave it to the Redditors to debate that one. But we can weigh in on the question “Which super hero would the Linux community be?”

Virtual Machine Brings X86 Linux Apps To ARMv7 Devices

Linux Slashdot - Sat, 23/08/2014 - 05:07
DeviceGuru writes Eltechs announced a virtual machine that runs 32-bit x86 Linux applications on ARMv7 hardware. The ExaGear VM implements a virtual x86 Linux container on ARMv7 computers and is claimed to be 4.5 times faster than QEMU, according to Eltechs. The VM is based on binary translation technology and requires ARMv7, which means it should run on mini-PCs and SBCs based on Cortex-A8, A7, A9, and A15 processors — but sadly, it won't run on the ARM11 (ARMv6) SoC found on the Raspberry Pi. It also does not support applications that require kernel modules. It currently requires Ubuntu (v12.04 or higher), but will soon support another, unnamed Linux distro, according to Eltechs, which is now accepting half price pre-orders without payment obligation.
