Datamation: There Android apps for travel will boost your productivity while you're on the move.
I have been reading up on a lot of information about Thinkpads and Lenovo but it's just so much. Especially after all the stories about how the thinkpad line has dropped in quality over the last couple of years.
What I am looking for is a laptop that can run on ubuntu/arch linux without too much problems. I dont mind tinkering at all but I don't want to spend 3 months fixing obscure problems before I can get back to work/coding.
I mainly want to use the laptop to run some scripts/code (think mathematica/matlab/python/r/excel) and not really for gaming (have a full blown desktop)
I love macbooks but they are also very very expensive and I am just a cheap uni student. I love how the X240 looks though.
Do you guys have any recommendations? Your help would be greatly appreciated, like really really appreciated.submitted by Rainymood_XI
Likely we are are all familiar with Red Hat's RHCSA. But now there is The Linux Foundation's LFCS which seems rather similar with a choice of distro/flavor concentrations i.e. CentOS, OpenSUSE or Ubuntu.
If you all had a choice (and assuming you do not already have either or had to do one again) which would you choose?
RHCSA has more pedigree and recognition (and also tests for RHEL 7 in new version) but LFCS seems like a "hip" new choice.submitted by zfl
Reddit: How to do memory searching/editing of another process? Is it possible to cause function calls?
How does one do memory searching and editing of other processes in Linux? In Windows, this is simple with programs like TSearch. Ideally I'd like a Python wrapper to do this.
Also is it possible to cause function calls in another program (assuming the calls are known somehow, i.e. from disassembly)? In Windows this is more or less possible with DLL injection - is this also viable on Linux?
For what it's worth, I'm working on AI and want to be able to automate some processes to make it easier to test automatically.submitted by jamesmcm

nextstep4IT: VSFTPD is the secure FTP server in the Linux operating system.
While Android users everywhere are rejoicing at the announcement of what is perhaps the biggest revamp to the open-source mobile operating system, Apple users are impatiently twiddling their fingers for iOS 8 to land on their smartphones. Following its own major revamp last year with iOS 7, Apple seems to have found its voice by letting go of skeuomorphism and following a more holistic design that measures up to the latest trends of "flat design". Also, iOS 8 is a huge stepping stone for "convergence" the big utopia major operating systems are aiming for today. Where does Android L stand on all of this? Well, it matches iOS 8 in pretty much every department. And that is what makes this mobile OS battle so exciting.

Don't get me wrong guys, I'm a firm supporter of Linux and I've been using various distros over the past 7 years or so. I've tried Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Kubuntu and Mint (currently downloading OpenSUSE). I've used various release candidates on various machines and its always the same. Linux chugchugchugs during install whereas Windows seems smooth and quiet (Android x86 was also quiet too)
I've searched the web but can't find an answer. Is it just how the files are laid out on a linux disk? So the optical reader is bouncing around a lot or something?submitted by IveDoneItAtLast
