Re: Article #3 - No procrastinating. Post by January 28th

The article I found this week talks about an experiment organized by academics all over the world. The experiment was aimed to study the impact of newly released security features for the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), described as "an experiment to evaluate alternatives for speeding up adoption of BGP route origin validation." However, things did not go as planned in the experiment which took down a bunch of Linux routers. Although the experiment compiled with BGP standards, FRR routers reset their sessions.The problem, according to the researcher, was that the BGP attribute they used caused software crashes in routers running FRRouting  (FRR), an IP routing protocol suite for Linux and Unix platforms.

The article I found this week talks about how the international space station changed from Windows to Linux because it's more reliable. It also gives the people using it in-house control. Another reason they switched from Windows to Linux is that its the choice of the operating system for the scientific community.

Void Linux is an independently developed, rolling-release, general-purpose operating system.  Void includes its own package management system and is one of the first distributions of Linux to switch to LibreSSL by default, replacing OpenSSL when developers forked from OpenSSL in 2014.

Linus Torvald said Linux 5.0 is on the way. There is nothing special about this update, mostly driver improvements, and some performance issues. Linux 5.0 is still a work in progress and were are looking at a springtime release.

New Dice figures show employers are typically willing to pay upwards of $100,000 for roles ranging from Linux systems engineer to DevOps engineer. Last year the Linux foundation highlighted that 87 percent of employers were having trouble finding open source talent, while 83 percent of those employers found it to be a priority.

Dell launches a 13" XPS ultralight laptop with Ubuntu installed straight out of the box!
You can get the laptop with the traditional version of the Intel Core processors. (i3, i5, and i7) up to 16 gigs of memory and UHD resolution. This is a big jump for Linux, especially Ubuntu since it will now be supported straight out of the box by a big retailer!
