LXer: Microsoft Continues to Hoard Patents -- Even Buying Patents -- While Using Them Against GNU/Linux

Wednesday 15th of March 2017 01:38:48 PM
Basic scrutiny of Microsoft's patent activity and its latest moves serves to reinforce the prior analysis, which says Microsoft uses patents to force OEMs to 'bundle in' Microsoft 'apps' (typically spyware that sends user data to Microsoft) and pressure companies to host GNU/Linux virtual machines only in Azure, for perceived "peace of mind" (they call it "Azure IP Advantage") in a climate of patent aggression which Microsoft contributes to by sending patents to large patent trolls

Reddit: Any program which shares the clipboard with your Android phone?

Wednesday 15th of March 2017 10:12:30 AM

Hey,

on Windows I use Alt-C (http://www.altcopy.net/) which works super fine but I haven't found a simple and easy alternative for Linux so far. There are also others but they all are Windows only.

I would mainly use it to browse on the PC and copy a link so I can paste it somewhere on my Android phone for sharing for example. Alt-C does it via copying something using this shortcut instead of CTRL-C and then you also have it on your phone in the clipboard immediately and vice versa with Alt-V for pasting. A similar approach would be really nice.

Done! It's more sensible and much deeper thinkable point than we can even imagine. One should understand what is privacy and what data is on risk.

Reddit: Getting ready to really buckle down and learn Linux.

Wednesday 15th of March 2017 08:47:25 AM

This might be dumb. But I kinda wanted to try something different besides Ubuntu. Particularly KDE Neon (for some reason I like the way the plasma desktop looks), what're the major differences between Ubuntu and KDE? Should I look into any other distributions?

6 Reasons Your Favorite Linux OS Is Plagued by Bugs

  • 6 Reasons Your Favorite Linux OS Is Plagued by Bugs
  • I’ve been a long-time GNOME user, but for the past few months, I was in a loving relationship with Elementary OS. I found much to love in the minimalist Linux-based operating system, and I encouraged readers to give it a try. But that has changed. The number of bugs I encountered grew over time, and I’ve recently had enough. As a freelance writer, the only thing I need is a working laptop. If that’s not reliable, then I’m wasting time trying to fix the one tool my job requires.
