Just an honest question before I even consider doing something remotely illegal: Would it be okay to take a rather generic Linux distribution say Debian or Arch, then pre-install and configure some free software packages, maybe customize the look and feel etc, create a bootable iso and then sell this?
If not, would it be okay to only provide the download to someone who purchased a different product (like a sticker, a screencast, something else ...)?
To be clear, the source would still be open and all licenses would remain the same of course and it would be labeled as "Special blah blah Linux, based on Debian/Arch" etc.
Just trying to do the right thing and inform myself before I potentially step on someones feet or break any laws.
Thanks in advance!submitted by pineapplesally

Recently I switched from Windows to Ubuntu and my eyes are bleeding cause of font rendering. I've installed infinality patches and unity tweak tool, but still I am not satisfied. Here I made a little comparison. Notice how text in Windows is thin, sharp and easy to read, whereas in Linux fonts are slightly blurred so there is not enough light between the letters. I hate it :(submitted by jaknb

Canonical has stopped promoting Ubuntu Touch images for a while (except for the unstable channel), due to some chroot issues, that were causing the environment to be unstable.
Email remains the killer information and communications technology. Email volume shows no sign of diminishing, despite the increasing popularity of collaborative messaging tools.
Messages are exchanged between hosts using the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol with software programs called mail transfer agents, and delivered to a mail store by programs called mail delivery agents, frequently referred to as email clients.
I wish to encourage modern android app developers to use open source OS Linux and latest Android SDK for better Android app development so development would be cost-effective as well as quick to reach as early as possible to the market. Therefore, I have given good hints in this post for newbie as well as seasoned Android developers.
Reddit: Any way we can get more people speaking up on this KDE feature request to get this design hole patched?
For some reason, kwin's quick tile doesn't tile to the top of bottom half. It started as a bug ticket (the proper place, imho), and was moved to a feature request.
Looks like it's been sitting there for a year with only 15 votes.
Take a look and vote if it's a feature you'd like to have implemented:YetAnotherRandomGuy

Reddit: Is there a way to add rerouting tables to a hosts file? (Not sure if this is what it's called, please read the description for more info)
Hi guys :)
I got myself a dedicated server from Kimsufi, and I managed to install windows 2008 R2 on it by following this guide: http://lowendtalk.com/discussion/21980/a-quick-guide-for-setting-up-windows-on-the-new-kimsufi-range
My question is about that last command I put in:iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i vmbr0 -p tcp --dport 3389 -j DNAT --to 192.168.0.1:3389
Per default, all ports are open on the server, but by using this method of installing windows, I have to use that command to get access to those ports in windows, which means I have to use that command a lot. Now, when the server crashes, or if I just reboot the thing, all the ports are closed again, and I have to use the command over and over untill all ports have been reopened. Is there a way to add the ports to hosts file somewhere, or is there some other way to avoid sending that command every time the server restarts?
I'm not an experienced Linux user at all, so if you know a way to help me, it would be greatly appreciated if you could explain the steps I need to take in a step-by-step way.
Thanks in advance!submitted by hazureru
