Today in Linux news are two reviews and Fedora updates. HandyLinux is a new one on me, but DarkDuck not only heard of it but has reviewed it. Jamie Watson reviews Kali Linux 1.0.6. Matthew Miller posted five things about Fedora this week. Red Hat CEO to get big bonus if financial goals are met and Jack Wallen reviews the System76 Galago UltraPro. HandyLinux is "a french/english Debian distribution for absolute beginners with XFCE, a stable, fast and light environment." DarkDuck tests it a bit checking out the strange menu and after having issue with his Samba shares, gives it up and concludes, "HandyLinux 1.5 is a nice looking system. However, there are still some things for developers to look at. French roots are visible, menu can be extended for easier use, packages are missing or broken. That's not something you would expect from a distribution that claims to be 'Powered by Debian.'" Jamie Watson goes over what's new in Kali Linux 1.0.6 today. Kali, the descendant of BackTrack Linux, is primarily designed for network security, forensic analysis, and penetration testing. UEFI had to be disabled and another bootloader used, but Watson finally enjoyed success. He said Kali "is a Linux distribution you need to know about" if you're into security and network analysis. In the latest Fedora Magazine, Matthew Miller said Fedora's developer conference schedule is posted and will occurring August 6 through August 9 this year in Prague. This is more than two months before the scheduled release of Fedora 21 on October 14, 2014. The next sentence warns the release dates could change though. He also posted links to information about Fedora 21 testing, so check that out if you like to help. Miller also said they'd be needing help with Software Collections testing.In other Fedora related news, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst is eligible for a $1.26 million bonus if Red Hat meets its financial goals. The Triangle Business Journal said, "Jim Whitehurst, CEO, has a base salary of $900,000, but could earn a $1.26 million award if Red Hat meets revenue and operating margin performance objectives." And finally today, Jack Wallen sums up his experience with the System76 Galago UltraPro laptop by saying it's a "Linux powerhouse with elegant styling and a beautiful display, but limited battery life." He praises most features of the machine but says folks will only get about three hours of battery life.
