Following on the success of the Squeeze LTS project, the Debian LTS team had the pleasure of announcing that they are preparing to support the Debian 7 (Wheezy) operating system with security patches for a longer period.
So im pretty new to linux, ive read a little about it and have always been interested in it. I just bought a simple used laptop with a clean install of Linux Mint 16 i believe. I installed Ktorrent so i could download some music and movies but how do i open these files? I have an audio player for the music but i just have no idea how to open these files. Any help would be greatly appreciated thankssubmitted by Warmasher

In the previous article, I gave an overview of how I've managed to go mobile. In this installment, I'm going to talk about the software I'm using on my different devices.
Enterprises, however, are stuck on "open source = free software," to the extent they know it's running within their firewalls at all. To attract developers and simultaneously boost innovation, enterprises need to go from mere users of open source to serious contributors of open source code.
Adeneo has released an Android KitKat 4.4.4 BSP for the TI Sitara AM437x EVM kit in both a free binary version and a commercial version with source code.
Adeneo Embedded’s Android 4.4.4 “KitKat” Reference Board Support Package is designed for use with the Texas Instruments AM437x EVM (TMDXEVM437X EVM). The EVM kit was announced last June with a Linux BSP when TI announced the Cortex-A9-based Sitara AM437x SoC. Adeneo tipped the BSP last December when it also announced a BSP that has since been made available based on the Cortex-A8 based Sitara AM335x. At the time, the company had few details on the AM437x BSP, however.
The popular GIMP image editing program continues in its quest of being ported to GTK3, but it's still not clear when it will be finished and merged to mainline.
Curiosity got the best of me this morning so I decided to see the latest state of GIMP's gtk3-port branch. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get it built quickly as after building the latest BABL and then GEGL dependencies, the newest GEGL Git code ran into problems building on my system. But in looking over the gtk3-port branch, a whole lot of code was pushed out in late March by Michael Natterer and others.
Linus's Law, named after Linux creator Linus Torvalds, postulates that open code leads to more effective bug detection because when an entire community is scouring through code, fixes come more quickly. This is often the first thing IT pros consider when installing security inside an open-source model. Through popular code-and tool-sharing sites like GitHub, the open-source community aids other organizations in securing their own code and systems, offering a list of free security tools and frameworks for malware analysis, penetration testing and other tasks. Along these same lines, a recent report from the Ponemon Institute explored how IT professionals view commercial open-source software, data protection, and the security impact of messaging and collaboration solutions on their organizations. This slide show, based on eWEEK reporting and industry insight from Olivier Thierry, chief marketing officer of Zimbra, offers eight takeaways to help your business harness the value of open source and get serious about security.
