Linux on Tiger Lake: System76 Lemur Pro and Galago Pro laptops

  • Linux on Tiger Lake: System76 Lemur Pro and Galago Pro laptops updated with Tiger Lake CPUs

    System76 is one of the few companies that sells laptops sporting the latest hardware with Linux installed out of the box. The retailer just refreshed its popular Lemur Pro and Galago Pro thin-and-lights with Intel’s new 11th Gen Tiger Lake CPUs.

    The new Tiger Lake-equipped laptops come about 8 months after their last refresh, which introduced Comet Lake chips. Tiger Lake has shown itself to be a good upgrade from Comet Lake, primarily in the graphics department.

    The new Galago Pro can be equipped with either an Intel Core 5-1135G7 or Core i7-1165G7, up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM (2x32 GB), and up to a 2 TB PCIe Gen4 SSD. Users can also opt for an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 for an extra US$150, though that configuration won’t ship until early December. Otherwise, the laptop will use Intel’s Iris Xe Graphics.

    The Lemur Pro has the same CPU and PCIe Gen 4 SSD options but is limited to 40 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM as 8 GB is soldered to the motherboard. This also means the only dual-channel RAM option is 16 GB (2x8 GB). The Lemur Pro also lacks a discrete GPU option. However, it has an extra PCIe Gen 3 slot for another SSD up to 2 TB.

  • How Russian threats in the 2000s turned this country into the go-to expert on cyber defense

    Estonia is no stranger to the cyber threat posed by Russia. Back in 2007, a decision to relocate a Soviet-era war memorial from central Tallinn to a military cemetery sparked a diplomatic spat with its neighbor and former overlord. There were protests and angry statements from Russian diplomats. And just as the removal works started, Estonia became the target of what was at the time the biggest cyberattack against a single country.

    The Estonian government called the incident an act of cyberwarfare and blamed Russia for it. Moscow has denied any involvement.

    The attack made Estonia realize that it needed to start treating cyber threats in the same way as physical attacks.

    We are pleased to announce that the Tracing Microconference has been accepted into the 2021 Linux Plumbers Conference. Tracing in the Linux kernel is constantly improving. Tracing was officially added to Linux in 2008. Since then, more tooling has been constantly added to help out with visibility. The work is still ongoing, with Perf, ftrace, Lttng, and eBPF. User space tooling is expanding and as the kernel gets more complex, so does the need for facilitating seeing what is going on under the hood.
