Garrett: Linux Container Security
Matthew Garrett considers the security of Linux containers on his blog. While the attack surface of containers is likely to always be larger than that of hypervisors, that difference may not matter in practice, but it's going to take some work to get there: I suspect containers can be made sufficiently secure that the attack surface size doesn't matter. But who's going to do that work? As mentioned, modern container deployment tools make use of a number of kernel security features. But there's been something of a dearth of contributions from the companies who sell container-based services. Meaningful work here would include things like: Strong auditing and aggressive fuzzing of containers under realistic configurations Support for meaningful nesting of Linux Security Modules in namespaces Introspection of container state and (more difficult) the host OS itself in order to identify compromises These aren't easy jobs, but they're important, and I'm hoping that the lack of obvious development in areas like this is merely a symptom of the youth of the technology rather than a lack of meaningful desire to make things better. But until things improve, it's going to be far too easy to write containers off as a "convenient, cheap, secure: choose two" tradeoff. That's not a winning strategy.

Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) released
Ubuntu has announced its latest release: 14.10 "Utopic Unicorn".

All of the varieties come with a 3.16 kernel and many more new features: "Ubuntu Desktop has seen incremental improvements, with newer versions of GTK and Qt, updates to major packages like Firefox and LibreOffice, and improvements to Unity, including improved High-DPI display support.
Ubuntu Server 14.10 includes the Juno release of OpenStack, alongside deployment and management tools that save devops teams time when deploying distributed applications - whether on private clouds, public clouds, x86 or ARM servers, or on developer laptops.

Ten years of Ubuntu (ars technica)
Here's a lengthy ars technica retrospective on Ubuntu's first ten years.
"As you'll soon see in this look at the desktop distro through the years, Linux observers sensed there was something special about Ubuntu nearly from the start. However, while a Linux OS that genuinely had users in mind was quickly embraced, Ubuntu's ten-year journey since is a microcosm of the major Linux events of the last decade—encompassing everything from privacy concerns and Windows resentment to server expansion and hopes of convergence."
