    also enforces privacy and security protocols. Android Android is an operating system based on the Linux kernel. This means that it uses the core components of the Linux operating system as a basis for its programming. Google, the creator of Android, took the open source code of the Linux kernel to create its operating system. (Hoffman, n.d.) Even though Android uses much of the base code for Linux, it has been extensively modified to better work on mobile devices and any other hardware Google wants

    Linux Assignment 2015 Evaluation of Linux Containers What is a Linux Container? The Linux Containers (LXC) feature is a lightweight virtualization mechanism that does not require you to set up a virtual machine on an emulation of physical hardware. (Oracle, 2015) Linux-based containers are emerging cloud technologies based on fast and lightweight process virtualization. It offers users an environment near identical performance to a standard Linux distribution, as opposed to para-virtualization

    me as part of VProbes[7] project during summer internship 2014 at VMware, inc. The solution in this paper covers a high level overview of the framework. It builds on top of the existing VProbes[7] design1. User space applications or the existing kernel source can add static probes using this framework. The paper describes adding static probes in a user space application to keep the explanation simple. Figure 1 shows a simple user code. The application contains two probe points defined viz.

    You can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you been, this saying rings true when thinking of Lunix. In order to know the start of Lunix one would have to travel back in time quite a bit. In this paper, I will research the start of Linux, the growth, and the future. When thinking of computers imagine they are as big as the tallest building or stadium. While the size of those computers posed problems, there was the one thing that made them worse: every computer had a different operating
