Command-line lovers, allow me to introduce you to Xiki, the incredibly interactive, flexible, and revolutionary command shell. I do not use the word "revolutionary" lightly. The command shell has not advanced all that much since the ancient days of Unix. Xiki is a giant leap forward. If you're looking for the Next Big Thing in FOSS, Xiki is it.
I installed it to learn Linux and was wanting to set up something server like for me to play around with.
SSH is something that has really interested me and I'd like to definitely get that set up and working.
I've at least gotten the basics down, but now I'm not sure what to do? I thought about setting up a file server, but I'm not sure how much better that would be over Drive.
Any ideas on something I could actually do on this Debian machine?
Thanks! :)submitted by THEMCV

If Ubuntu Linux is to prove truly competitive in the OpenStack cloud and Big Data worlds, it needs to run on more than x86 hardware. And that's what Canonical achieved this month, with the announcement of full support for IBM POWER8 machines on Ubuntu Cloud and Ubuntu Server.
This market is moving so quickly in terms of what's happening. And if you wind back Hadoop, it started as a way of having a scale-out architecture. It allowed you to take your storage out onto the web. And around 2011, the team at Yahoo! Decided that Hadoop was a great technology and realised that it had potential far outside the four walls of Yahoo!
So they decided to take it out to be a general data processing platform, and they founded Hortonworks. We take Apache Hadoop, which is an open source data architecture, and to turn it into an enterprise-class data platform, completely in the open.
GamingOnLinux: The developers of Unreal Tournament have another update in store for us and it sounds like it's all coming together very nicely.
After years of rumours, months of teasing and weeks of waiting, SteamOS is finally here. The beta release of the gaming distro signalled the start of Valve’s tentative entry into the hardware market. The same day as the release, the first wave of Valve’s own Steam Machines went out. These beta units, while never truly meant to grace store shelves, are the first examples of many more third-party offerings to come. This massive step from Valve is making waves around the tech and games world, so we decided to talk to a few of the people that could help us truly understand the position Valve is in, and what their next move might be.
Two Google Summer of Code projects for the X.Org Foundation have already failed.
At the X.Org Board of Directors' meeting yesterday, it was confirmed about two projects already failing. "Unfortunately we had to fail two students, one that disappeared right after the program start and one who failed the mid-term evaluations." Sadly, this isn't too uncommon for these student open-source projects funded by Google.
Knowing nothing about current consoles, I ask you: what cheap reliable controllers can you use with a Linux machine to play mainly old school emulated games and some more recent Steam titles?
The only controllers I have tried (Wii controllers) don't seem to work at all.
Thanks in advance!
