An anonymous reader writes "The Tux3 file-system that's been in development since 2008 as the public replacement to the patent-blocked Tux2 file-system is now under review for inclusion into the Linux kernel. Tux3 tries to act as a 'light, tight, modern file-system. We offer a fresh approach to some ancient problems,' according to its lead developer, Daniel Phillips. Tux3 strives for minimal resource consumption but lacks enterprise-grade reliability at this point. Tux3, at the end of the day, tries to be 'robust, fast, and simple' with the Linux FS reportedly being as fast as other well known file-systems. Details on the project are at Tux3.org."

Analysis Wrong. It could. Look at history – and Redmond ought to swot up, too

Microsoft isn't used to being the underdog, but the company which owns the desktop is losing its grip on customers' wallets. While buying Nokia is an audacious move to redress that, to make it work Microsoft needs to understand some of Nokia's history.

Rackspace, the Web hosting company behind OpenStack, has been approached by companies looking for strategic partnerships or acquisitions.
Red Hat's latest version of its OpenShift platform-as-a-service cloud is now available.

Linux Creator Linus Torvalds appeared in a video this week to introduce the Linux Foundation's new Introduction to Linux Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) with edX.

Well, that didn't stay a secret for very long.

I've gotten a number of questions about this, so just to clear things up - yes, we are planning to give Gear 2 watches to Tizen Developer Conference attendees.

If you've checked out the schedule, you'll see that there is a "Wearables" track.  This should be pretty cool, particularly for app developers who can see this new ecosystem on the horizon and want to get in on the ground floor.  And of course, what better way to get started than to do so on your own device?

We're looking forward to another good conference this year, and hope you can join us! As I'd mentioned previously, when you register as an attendee, use the code LFCOMTDC14 to get 50% off the registration price.

See you in San Francisco!
