Linux 3.10 Released; FreeBSD to Implement Secure Boot

Two of the biggest names in open source operating systems made announcements about new versions.

Big changes can be found in the latest release of the Linux kernel.  Linus Torvalds decided to make the changes official on Sunday night.  Users can expect better performance in mixed storage environments and to High Performance Computing (HPC) implementations of Linux, support for next generation Haswell processors from Intel, better power management, and many more changes.

FreeBSD Project made an official announcement that it will begin working to make sure FreeBSD can run on a system that has secure boot enabled.  This will move FreeBSD from only being able to run on systems that have a traditional BIOS to systems with Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI).
