Study Shows Lenovo, Other OEM Bloatware Still Poses Huge Security Risk [Ed: Microsoft Windows poses greater risks. Does Microsoft put back doors in Windows (all versions)? Yes. Does it spy on users? Yes. So why focus only on Asian OEMs all the time?]
Lenovo hasn't had what you'd call a great track record over the last few years in terms of installing insecure crapware on the company's products. You'll recall that early last year, the company was busted for installing Superfish adware that opened all of its customers up to dangerous man-in-the-middle attacks, then tried to claim they didn't see what all the fuss was about. Not too long after that, the company was busted for using a BiOS trick to reinstall its bloatware on consumer laptops upon reboot -- even if the user had installed a fresh copy of the OS.
Now Lenovo and its bloatware are making headlines once again, with the news that the company's "Accelerator Application" software makes customers vulnerable to hackers. The application is supposed to make the company's other bloatware, software, and pre-loaded tools run more quickly, but Lenovo was forced to issue a security advisory urging customers to uninstall it because it -- you guessed it -- opened them up to man-in-the-middle attacks.

I had ubuntu on my hdd and it worked fine. I formatted my hdd and installed deepin os onto it with a live usb. Now, my hdd doesnt show up in the bios menu, but when i boot into my live usb, gparted still reconized the hdd. I dont know why my bios wont reconize it. I had it set to ext4 at first, with the boot flag selected. This didnt work in bios, so i installed deepin os with the filesystem set to ntfs. This didnt work either.submitted by /u/wfineb
Can anyone running Linux on a VM under OSX comment on their experience?
I used to run a Linux VM on a MacBook Air a fee years ago but opted to go full-native and bought a thinkpad, erased windows, when my Air died.
Issues I had were
inability to use all cores (I guess this is an inherent limitation since at least one core has to be reserved for the host?)
Timing issues when inserting USB peripherals (if the VM was on but not focused, it would still grab the USB device making it unavailable to the host. If the peripheral was already inserted before running the VM, it would have to be disconnected then reconnected for the VM to pick it up)
Sleep problems (if the VM was on when the host went to sleep, it was impossible to wake the host because the VM would capture all input)
My thinkpad is starting to show it's age and the state of non Apple laptops is pretty abysmal, while lenovo's products i feel are just way overpriced for what they are. I'm on the fence about just picking up another Mac and running Linux on the vm.submitted by /u/momo-reina
ARM announced a 10nm Cortex-A73 architecture with 30 percent better sustained performance and efficiency than the Cortex-A72, plus a 32-shader Mali-G71 GPU.
My roommate has an old compaq 6910p laptop with only 1GB of ram. I installed Ubuntu on it and everything ran fine, no missing drivers or anything. However, it runs pretty slow since this laptop is old.
All she does is watch Youtube videos and Netflix so there's no reason to buy a new one and she doesn't want to spend the money to upgrade the ram either. Therefore, I either need to install a lighter linux distro or (preferably) optimize Ubuntu so it runs faster.
I appreciate any recommendations on distros that are light and compatible with the old laptop or ways to optimize Ubuntu.
Thanks!submitted by /u/dreadlocks1221
