If you run several little devices like Raspberry Pi's or Beagle Bones as headless servers for home automation, setting up ssh for each of them can be a real hassle: you need to find a keyboard and a monitor, log into the console, ftp the ssh keys and save them in the right place, and then disconnect, and do it again for the next device.
Anytime I'm forced to use Windows or OS X I instantly find myself missing the specific features I enjoy on the Linux desktop. More specifically, it's the post-installation enhancements that make using someone else's computer near painful.
In this article, I'll share my favorite Ubuntu Linux enhancements and how I use them to get more value out of my desktop experience.
Mozilla has released an open source memory forensics tool that some college students designed and built during the company’s recent Winter of Security event.
The new tool, known as Masche, is designed specifically for investigating server memory and has the advantage of being able to scan running processes without causing any problems with the machine. Masche runs on Linux, OS X and Windows and Mozilla has posted the code on GitHub.
A startup fresh out of private beta offers a three-way intersection between machine learning, the API economy, and open source developers' need to monetize their creations.
Algorithmia, which launched privately last year, allows users to build algorithms, make them available as a Web service, and monetize them.
The service can be used in two basic ways: either by calling algorithms available in the system via its REST API (with examples provided), or by writing and submitting the algorithms to be used. Each algorithm has its own interactive console page, so they can be tried out directly on the Web without needing to write and implement code. Many of the algorithms are original creations; others are implementations of existing software, such as a tokenizer based on Apache OpenNLP.
Hi, I'm hoping this is a place one can get help on a linux topic. It took me long enough to find that the sine funciton is written as s(x), but how can get it to work with degrees instead of radians? Do I have to do the conversions myself?
Thanks in advance.submitted by un_salamandre
I have the newest version of Linux and I can't install drivers for wifi USB. The cd is in the reader but every time I click on setup.exe it says "An error occurred while loading this archive" I am new to Linux and would appreciate help. I have a Linksys AC1200.submitted by Thomas_burns

To realize the full potential of location-based smartphone apps, they should be built to support offline mode and original map graphics. Creating a custom offline map is the best choice. We were faced with this challenge as well, and the solution we came up with was creating a separate library for this purpose. That is how I developed the mAppWidget code library.
We recently decided to open source it, and now mAppWidget is available to anyone in need of a mobile custom offline map solution.
I'm very new to linux -I'm installing Ubuntu Gnome 14.10 -Is there any precautions I should take -I am going to be installing it alongside Windows 8.1, is there any way that I could Corrupt Windows by installing Ubuntu? -Will I run into any driver/issues using a Nvidia Graphics card, Thankssubmitted by oisink2013
Much of Linux's early business success was based on the Linux, Apache, MySQL and Python/PHP/Perl (LAMP) stack. Looking ahead Red Hat and Docker is hoping that "RHELDoc," a software stack made up of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and Docker containers, can do for the cloud and data center what LAMP did for servers.
The two are doing this by launching one of the first certified, end-to-end ecosystem programs for Linux containers based on Docker. This follows up on Red Hat's earlier announcement in March of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Atomic Host (RHELAH). This program integrated RHEL and Docker.
Ubuntu developers have updated the Linux kernel for the 15.04 branch (Vivid Vervet) and it's now ready in the official repositories.
