Reddit: I would like to get some feedbacks from users that are using Grsecurity and Wayland on their desktop.
I'm thinking of using Grsecurity and Wayland on my desktop. First, I would like to read some feedbacks from some of you who already using them. What is your experience so far? What is working well and what is not? Would you recommend it to most Linux users?
Thank you!submitted by /u/juan08880
Greetings! I just installed deluged.services according to this http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/Service/systemd But still the services does not load the auth and core.conf from its directory.(/var/lib/deluge/.config/deluge/) So I am a bit confused, did I missed something?submitted by /u/asdbimbaj

TuxMachines: Why We Embraced Open Source For Our Database Needs After A Decade Working With Proprietary Solutions
After investigating our open source options and due diligence, we picked MariaDB as Teleplan’s new replacement e-TRAC database partner. With MariaDB, we realized significant performance improvements.
For example, whereas running one particular daily report would take up to 15 seconds to run on Oracle Enterprise, with MariaDB it was running in under a second. We did not have the in-house expertise to work on improving the Oracle performance and found this aspect much easier with MariaDB. We also received excellent support both in terms of value and responsiveness and that, coupled with a highly competitive cost, makes MariaDB a great overall package for our e-TRAC needs.
I eventually found out that my friends was fed up, the company wouldn't allow him to contribute to open source. Wow. Even in Silicon Valley.
It made me think about how lucky we are at Capital One when it comes to open source. When you think of a financial institution or a bank, transparency and open source software might not be the first thing that you think of, especially with recent scandals. And for many years, the financial sector has used mostly closed source, proprietary software. This was the case for a variety of reasons, including lack of trust in open source software, the need for SLA support, regulations, and to protect intellectual property.
If you live in a city with poor air quality you may be aware that particulates are one of the chief contributors to the problem. Tiny particles of soot from combustion, less than 10μm across, hence commonly referred to as PM10. These are hazardous because they can accumulate deep in the lungs, wherein all kinds of nasties can be caused.
There are commercial sensors available to detect and quantify these particles, but they are neither inexpensive nor open source. [Rundong] tells us about a project that aims to change that situation, the MyPart, which is described as a portable, accurate, low-cost, open source air particle counter. There is a GitHub repository for the project as well as a series of Instructables covering the build in detail. It comes from a team of members of the Hybrid Ecologies Lab at UC Berkeley, USA.
On Friday last week I released version 1.1.1 of Yokadi, the console-based TODO list system.
Project Darling Is Still Trying To Run macOS/OSX Software On Linux
Back in 2012 I wrote about Project Darling as an effort to run Mac OS X software on Linux -- to Wine is for Windows software on Linux, Darling is for Mac software on Linux. Work on Darling seems to have picked up recently after a brief hiatus.

Microsoft Launches Skype for Linux Version 1.12 [Ed: Skype is malware]
Microsoft has rolled out a new update for the Linux flavor of its Skype client, bringing it to version 1.12, but still keeping it in the alpha development stage for the time being.
Nmap is a great security scanner. Many systems and network administrators use it for tasks such as network inventory, managing service upgrade schedules, and monitoring host or service uptime. In this article, I'll guide you through how to use Nmap commands.
I've been surfing r/unixporn lately and realized how beautiful a Linux desktop can be - so I have to ask - what gives?
Why is the majority of Linux experiences, starting from the way our desktops look and function by default all the way to the apps we use everyday so agonizingly bad? Why do we have n-plus solutions to a single problem, such as desktop managers (of which none are nearly as good as say, Mac OS), while a bunch of other problems are left completely unresolved (for example - poor Bluetooth support)?
The way I see it, Linux should have taken over the world by now. We should have the best desktop experience and the best applications available. Why? Because we're building it for ourselves. We're our own customers. I scratch my own itch and share the code. Compound that by the number of people using the software and you've got a lot of momentum.
So why are things the way they are? Is it because of a lack of cooperation? Is it because of ego?submitted by /u/deceased_parrot
Introduction to Eclipse Che, a next-generation, web-based IDE
Correctly installing and configuring an integrated development environment, workspace, and build tools in order to contribute to a project can be a daunting or time consuming task, even for experienced developers. Tyler Jewell, CEO of Codenvy, faced this problem when he was attempting to set up a simple Java project when he was working on getting his coding skills back after dealing with some health issues and having spent time in managerial positions. After multiple days of struggling, Jewell could not get the project to work, but inspiration struck him.
A few thoughts on what it means for software to be production ready. Or rather, what if any information is conveyed to me when I’m told that something is used in production. Millions of users can’t be wrong!
Some time ago, I worked with a framework. It doesn’t matter which, the bugs have all been fixed, and I don’t think it was remarkable. But our team picked it because it was production ready, and then I discovered it wasn’t quite so ready.
It's Been Five Years Since The Open64 5.0 Compiler Release
This week marked five years since the release of the Open64 5.0 compiler in what is the latest and likely last-ever release of this once-promising code compiler.
Open64 5.0 was released back in 2011 and unfortunately there hasn't been a release since. Last year we wrote how the Open64 project vanished. A few days after that article, it was said back on 27 March 2015, "The websites and SVN servers are down for maintenance and will be back soon."
