Look At The Bones Edition

Tech News

  • WSL2 will ship with Windows 10 2004.  (Tom's Hardware)

    This version runs a full Linux kernel under virtualisation, and fixes things that currently don't work properly (or at all) like memory-mapped files.

  • Pokemon Go is now Pokemon Stay.  (WCCFTech)

    They haven't drastically altered the game, but they've made it easier to find Pokemons without travelling all over the place.  Incense, which attracts Pokelets to your current location, still needs to be bought for real money, but is now 99% cheaper.

  • Tech journalists are discovering to their horror that some jobs cannot be done from home.  (Wired)

    Won't someone do something, they cry.  Because they are dumb.

  • A look inside two 80-core Arm server designs.  (Serve the Home)

    Ampere's chip has eight memory channels and 128 PCIe lanes, just like AMD's Epyc, so the server designers - Wiwynn and Gigabyte - have adapted existing Epyc board layouts to the task.

  • If API definitions are copyrighted as Oracle claims, Oracle could be in big trouble.  (Ars Technica)

    Their business was founded on SQL, which would, if their claims are upheld in court, be copyrighted by IBM.  And they never licensed it.
