OPERATING SYSTEMS --
It's been a while since last having anything to report on with the OpenMandriva Linux distribution, but they wrote in today with news about adding Flash-Friendly File-System (F2FS) support.

Within their OpenMandriva "Cooker" development repository is the most interesting support with F2FS support being part of their kernel, shipping f2fs-tools by default, and their Calamares installer allowing F2FS for SSD disks. They've also added a F2FS patch for GRUB2. With that work in OpenMandriva Cooker, users can be running F2FS as their root file-system with ease!

They also added F2FS support to their stable OpenMandriva 2014.x series, but there it's just the f2fs-tools being available, F2FS support being enabled in their kernel as a static module, and carrying the GRUB2 patch.

You can learn more about their recent Flash-Friendly File-System efforts via the OpenMandriva blog.
