After months of work, the Linux Foundation’s UEFI Secure Boot pre-bootloader for independent Linux distros and software developers has finally been released.
The Linux Foundation’s UEFI secure boot pre-bootloader is still in the works and has been modified substantially so that it allows any Linux version to boot through UEFI secure boot.
The Linux Foundation has released Linux 3.4 under its Long Term Support Initiative (LTSI) that will be maintained for next two years with back-ported features from newer Linux kernels.
Some of the major things you may have missed last week are: news about Raspberry Pi’s $25 Camera Module, Mozilla's plans of putting 64-bit Firefox on Hold, homebrewer's claims that Wii U has been jailbroken and news about delay of the Linux Foundation’s UEFI Pre-Bootloader.
The Linux Foundation’s plans of releasing a signed pre-bootloader that will enable users to install Linux alongside Windows 8 systems with UEFI have been reportedly delayed.
The Linux Foundation has announced its plans of ensuring that Linux continues to work on systems that are Secure Boot enabled thus providing users with a mechanism to boot Linux distributions as well as other open source distributions on "Designed for Windows 8" systems.
The Linux Foundation has announced the Automotive Grade Linux Workgroup in a bid to have collaborative efforts towards bringing open source technologies to the automotive industry.
Microsoft has gone ahead and given itself a new logo, multicoloured this time, after 25 years marking a major change in company’s history. With launch of Windows 8 just around the corner and Office 2013 already out, the new logo is more or less in synch with those used by Microsoft in its other newly unveiled products. On its official blog, Microsoft has noted that this is the perfect time for such a change and that the current year is going to see launch of new versions of all its products. "It’s been 25 years since we’ve updated the Microsoft logo and now is the perfect time for a change." the blog reads.
