Kernel Developer Quote:
This weeks quote is from Alan Cox
“Swansea at it’s best, just post tourist season. Lots of sun but not blazingly hot, sea, sand and quiet. Fresh made Lebanese lamb bi ajine from the marvellous Lebanese pastry shop in town and Joe’s ice cream.
Alas the one thing it won’t do is magically finish the accounts for me so back to the paperwork.”

Intel says Clover Trail Atom CPUs can’t run Linux
Intel sits in a pretty dominant position in the chip making business, with the exception of one sector: mobile devices. For smartphones and tablets ARM is the market leader due to its low power, high performance chip designs working so well for those form factors.
Intel hopes to change that with the introduction of the next Atom chip, codenamed Clover Trail. But even before the Clover Trail processors are available, Intel has limited the market for them by stating Clover Trail Atom chips will only work with Windows 8. In other words, they won’t run Linux and Intel wont support them running Linux.
Do Your SSL Certs Meet Microsoft’s New Requirements?
Warning from Microsoft to the entire Internet: make sure that your digital certificates are at least 1024 bits. As of Oct. 9, 2012, longer key lengths are mandatory for all digital encryption certificates that touch Windows systems.
This means that Internet Explorer will refuse to access websites that do not have RSA keys with minimum lengths of 1024 bits. You won’t be able to exchange encrypted emails, run ActiveX controls or install applications on Windows. This isn’t new, as Microsoft started making announcements about this well over a year ago.
Motorola Mobility ordered to recall Android tablets & smartphones
The dramatic decision, the latest in an escalating war between Apple and the smartphone and set-top box company MMI, follows earlier cases in which Apple had to disable automatic “push” delivery of email to its iPhone and iPads after MMI won a separate patent fight in Germany.
The recall will not take effect immediately because Apple will have to request a ban on specific products and provide a €25m (£20m) bond, while MMI can appeal.
Open source education software unveiled by Google
Online education startups such as the Khan Academy, along with new efforts by MIT, Stanford, and Harvard have helped spur interest in and add legitimacy to the notion of remote learning. Now Google is lending its brainpower to the rapidly growing area by releasing a tool called Course Builder, open source software designed to let anyone create online education courses.
