Ext4 is the evolution of the most used Linux filesystem, Ext3. In many ways, Ext4 is a deeper improvement over Ext3 than Ext3 was over Ext2. Ext3 was mostly about adding journaling to Ext2, but Ext4 modifies important data structures of the filesystem such as the ones destined to store the file data. The result is a filesystem with an improved design, better performance, reliability and features.

As Linux personalities go, there is nobody more famous than Linus Torvalds, the man who started it all by developing the Linux kernel in 1991; read on for our exclusive interview with the chief architect of the most important part of your Linux distribution. In the news section, Fedora gets set to include KDE 4.2 in current and previous releases, Debian developers announce the imminent release of version 5.0 "Lenny", OpenSolaris focuses on improvements to compete with Linux, Keir Thomas releases his Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference book as a free download, netbook distribution Easy Peasy publishes a feature list of the upcoming version 2.0, and the Intel-sponsored Moblin project releases a new alpha build of its operating system for mobile devices. Finally, we are pleased to announce that the recipient of the DistroWatch.com January 2009 donation is the Openbox project. Happy reading!

The 12 Linux books mentioned here by no means are comprehensive or authoritative list. But, these 12 Books are few of my favorites that I enjoyed reading over the years and I strongly believe will enhance your technical abilities on Linux, if you have not read them yet.

A regression was discovered last night, right after the launch of Ubuntu 8.10 (codename Intrepid Ibex), in the Linux kernel packages. Do not be alarmed, as this is not a security flaw! It's actually a bug in 2.6.27 Linux kernel packages.

Looks like it is microkernel debate time again. Before getting into technical arguments, there are a couple of things I want to say. Many people have said or suggested that Linus and I are enemies or something like that. That is totally false. I met him once. He is a pleasant fellow and very smart. We may disagree on some technical issues, but that doesn't make us enemies. Please don't confuse disagreements about ideas with personal feuds. I have nothing against Linus and have great respect for what he has accomplished.

In the unlikely event that anyone missed it, a couple of years ago Microsoft paid a guy named Ken Brown to write a book saying Linus stole Linux from my MINIX 1 system. I refuted that accusation pretty strongly to clear Linus' good name. I may not entirely agree with the Linux design, but Linux is his baby, not my baby, and I was pretty unhappy when Brown said he plagiarized it from me.

I have compiled a list of 10 easter eggs found in Open Source project (actually you will find more than 10 here, as I treated each application as one). So here we go:
