TuxMachines: Robolinux 7.4.2 Distro Can Keep Windows XP Running Inside Forever Without Viruses or Malware
Robolinux, a fast and easy to used Linux distribution based on Debian, has just received another major update, raising the version number to 7.4.2.
Robolinux is trying a different approach as a Linux distribution and the developers have implemented a software called Robolinux Stealth VM Software, which allows users to create a pristine clone of a Windows Operating System with all your installed programs and updates.
I’m very excited to announce Pyston, a new open-source implementation of Python, currently under development at Dropbox. The goal of the project is to produce a high-performance Python implementation that can push Python into domains dominated by traditional systems languages like C++.
The biggest challenge for Windows XP users switching to Linux Mint is having to change the programs you've known and used for years. Fortunately, some programs are available on both Linux and Windows. In addition, there are Linux programs that duplicate the functionality of your favorite Windows programs.
The really interesting and important thing about the AVLinux distribution, of course, is the Multimedia capability included in it. The Audio menu is shown to the right, above. Well, at least part of it is; it has so much in this category that it doesn't even fit on one screen! Audio players, mixers, editors, synthesizers, analyzers, and pretty much anything and everything you can think of in this category are included.
This is where AVLinux really shines, and where Linux in general really shines in my opinion. Almost all of these are FOSS projects, and the few which are not at least include DEMO versions of their licensed products (Mixbus, Pianoteq and Renoise).
I just recently just set up a laptop with win8 ubuntu and kali...everything went fine in all the installs but the new kali Linux install is not taking my password i provided during the install. I am 100% sure its the correct password....But I cant get past the login screen. Is there any way to get to the terminal from the login screen and reset the root passwd. and yes I have tired the live cd passwd of toor.
Thanks!!!submitted by liberty71

LXer: Improve Spam abuse protection in dovecot by restricting access to mail accounts by IP address (e. g. with ISPConfig 3)
I need some help. I have a lot of old PC's at our plant vintage P4 2.4ghz 1-2GB Ram. I need to use them as lightweight linux boxes with RDP to hit our RDP server. I just need a suggestion for a distro. Thinstation isn't what I want. Then need nothing more than to boot to desktop then start RDP client. That's it. Can someone point me to a good lightweight distro or perhaps a useful howto for building my own spin? Thanks.
EDIT: Please include a link to a useful howto :)submitted by bigfatoctopus

The Raspberry Pi has been out for just over two years now, and has been one of the biggest tech success stories in recent times. With millions of Raspberry Pi’s in the wild and countless more millions raised for various charities and open source projects, the foundation has been able to do more than originally expected.
Today, the foundation have announced that they’re creating the Raspberry Pi Foundation Education Fund, a worldwide fund of £1 million that aims to not only fund computing in schools but also education in general.
