This week in IT

This week in IT saw the release of Fedora 18. It comes with Secure Boot support, a new installer and all the latest software packages. For example Samba 4 that allows Fedora to be used as an Active Directory domain controller.
The tmp folder for temporary files now resides fully in memory thanks to Tmpfs. Bigger files must therefore be stored in /var/tmp/.
The upgrade process changed a bit and you have to use a tool called FedUp to upgrade from the previous release. How do they come up with these names? More Fedora 18 features can be found at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/18/FeatureList.

We also saw what happens when big corporations own news channels: http://news.cnet.com/8301-30677_3-57563877-244/the-2013-best-of-ces-awards-cnets-story/.

And last and least Microsoft requires cell phones to come with CD drives now: http://media.bestofmicro.com/A/Y/368458/original/Windows-phone-installation-disc.jpg
