To complement yesterday's launch-day GeForce GTX 1060 Linux review, here are some more benchmark results with the various NVIDIA x60 graphics cards I have available for testing going back to the GeForce GTX 460 Fermi. If you are curious about the raw OpenGL/OpenCL/CUDA performance and performance-per-Watt for these mid-range x60 graphics cards from Fermi, Kepler, Maxwell, and Pascal, here are these benchmarks from Ubuntu 16.04 Linux.
The British government’s Digital Service is looking for a chief penguin to head up open source.
GDS has created a brand-new position for an individual to conduct open source technology projects, adoption and working practices for the government's IT arm.
Moreover, the chosen candidate will be charged with forging relationships with individuals and projects outside government in the open-source community.
Until now, GDS had a number of people working in different roles taking the lead on open source. The new individual will be nestled in GDS’s technical architecture team.

Reddit: "Speed" and responsiveness (overall performance) of running Linux from USB vs full install on hard drive?
I'm going to install Lubuntu on my mom's old netbook and for now wanted to check how it would perform by making a USB with it. The question is if I will install it fully will it perform better? I don't ask about the boot time but the overall performance like while on the web etc.
It's an old netbook with 1gb of RAM and 1.6GHz Atlon and I need an OS that would be able to run in the web smoothly and have reasonable UI for my mom to be able to use it (which means it need to be as close to WinXP as possible which btw was laggy as shit on that device). I thought Lubuntu would just right fit the needs but while i'm running the "try it without installing" version it not as good as i wanted it to be. Will it get better after installing?submitted by /u/Dyaebl
