Linux Operating System With Shell From Scratch For Beginners


This is a brand new Linux Administration course launched in August 2021. Linux is the number 1 operating system in the Corporate world. Industry's most powerful computers are Linux based. It Linux is a popular open-source operating system that's easy to use and highly secure. Every time you use Google or Facebook or any other major Internet site, you are communicating with servers running Linux.

Microsoft built its own custom Linux kernel for its new IoT service


At a small press event in San Francisco, Microsoft today announced the launch of a secure end-to-end IoT product that focuses on microcontroller-based devices -- the kind of devices that use tiny and relatively low-powered microcontrollers (MCUs) for basic control or connectivity features. Typically, these kinds of devices, which could be anything from a toy to a household gadget or an industrial application, don't often get updated and hence, security often suffers. At the core of Azure Sphere is a new class of certified MCUs. As Microsoft president and chief legal officer Brad Smith stressed in today's announcement, Microsoft will license these new Azure Sphere chips for free, in hopes to jump-start the Azure Sphere ecosystem. Because it's hard to secure a device you can't update or get telemetry from, it's no surprise that these devices will feature built-in connectivity.

Microsoft releases its first Linux product


After testing the waters for years, Microsoft has launched its first service, Azure Cloud Switch, that's based on Linux. Microsoft has released a product containing its own Linux kernel: Azure Sphere. Azure Sphere is a software and hardware stack designed to secure edge devices. It includes microcontrollers, "Azure Sphere Security Service" and, the really interesting component, the Linux-based Azure Sphere operating system. Microsoft made no bones about it.

The new long-term Linux kernel, Linux 4.14, has arrived


The Internet of Things is the new frontier. However, generations of ERP systems were not designed to handle global networks of sensors and devices. Video: Internal Space Station's Linux high-performance computer could help future Mars mission Linus Torvalds quietly released the latest Linux 4.14 kernel on Nov. 12. It won't be a quiet release, though. The Linux developers had previously announced that 4.14 would be Linux's next long-term support (LTS) version of the Linux kernel.

Learn all about Linux, Ubuntu, and more for just $20


Linux is the leading operating system on mainframes servers and other big systems, but it also runs on all types of embedded systems, which makes it the perfect operating system to rule the Internet of Things. Most recently, it has led the open source communities to meet President Biden's cybersecurity challenge. So if you were hoping to break into a career that would grow into the future instead of becoming obsolete, The Mastering Linux Development Bundle would be a very good place to start. Then you need to know Linux and open-source software. One of the best ways to pick them up is via a Linux Foundation course.
