LXer Linux News
The latest exciting hardware we’ve been testing at Phoronix are two Xeon Haswell processors that are compatible with the MSI X99S SLI PLUS motherboard. Needless to say with being an Intel processor and especially a workstation-class product, the Xeon E5-1680 v3 and Xeon E5-2687W v3 are running great with Linux…
Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolly lolly lolly …
We’re back with another poll, where we get to pick your brains a bit and find out how you think, what you’re doing, and what you love (and hate)! It’s my favorite post to write each week, and this go ’round is going to be a fun one, I think.
Google has released “beta” previews of Lollipop for all of us to install and try. They have bugs, sport a new user interface design, and give us a peek at what having a Nexus 6 or Nexus 9 will be like. I know plenty of my hardcore Nexus buddies out there have flashed it. I also know that plenty haven’t, and a lot have switched back. Beta software means bugs. And of course, being available for only one phone makes a helluva difference.
Here’s you chance to tell me what you’ve done, and to fill the comments with friendly banter all about the Lollipop preview, the Nexus, and anything else that’s on your mind. The poll follows.
Last month following the launch of Intel’s Core i7 5960X Haswell-E platform I ran into a rather odd situation with the first system assembled using the X99 chipset and eight-core, $ 1000+ processor: the motherboard failed. Coincidentally it happened at the same time as another motherboard failure at a fellow review site. Fortunately, since then, there’s been no other major reports of failures with Intel’s new platform. MSI has been helpful in this matter and I’ve since received a new MSI X99S SLI PLUS to confirm there’s no fundamental issues with their board.
