So yesterday i decided to install Linux on a partition of one of my spare SSHD's The installation of the Ubuntu OS went smoothly, but that was about it. Upon logging in I first tried to download steam, ok downloaded and installed... But wont open? Welp thats enough for tonight lets go back to windows and play a game...
NOPE! no bootloader and no way to enter windows... that was an easy fix though that after a few hours i spent googling why, I found out all i had to do was run terminal command:
The following day i decide to get back to the steam issue. After some googling i find out "oh i might need to install the gpu drivers as stated in this online thread i found." Downloaded the .run file direct from nvidia but guess what? I CANT INSTALL IT WITHOUT A GPU DRIVER INSTALLED!
Why? Because to install it you need to log off and hit
to enter a shell and then you can cd your way to the directory and sudo sh install that file but the shell only shows a blank black screen when you don't have gpu drivers installed.
So upon using some terminal commands i get to installing the drivers from the repository only to have shit thrown at my face once again and now i am at this point where i cant login to ubuntu due to a login loop where my pc will ask for the password, i will enter the password, a few purple and black flashes happen and voila i am back at login screen.
THANK YOU LINUX!submitted by mor0se

Btrfs cannot handle virtual machine or database loads on spindles and may have cpu spikes on ssds. This is extremely limiting.
Should we start to look toward bcachefs or some other filesystem to have the the performance of ZFS if we want an advanced native linux filesystem?submitted by hatonhead

The year 2016 will see Americans lining up to elect their new president. While passion and sentiments will dictate the outcome of the elections on the surface, deep down, modern technology will be at play, helping determine who will be the next president. These elections will harness the power of Big Data on a scale never done before. We have already seen the role that Big Data played in 2012 elections, and it’s only going to get bigger. This Big Data revolution is led by, as expected, open source and Apache Hadoop, in particular.

Software In Person
In February, while coworking at the Open Internet Tools Project, I got to talking with Gus Andrews about face-to-face tech events. Specifically, when distributed people who make software together have a chance to get together in person, how can we best use that time? Gus took a bunch of notes on my thoughts, and gave me a copy.

First OpenWrt Summit co-locates with ELCE
The Imagination backed Prpl Foundation announced a free OpenWrt Summit to be held in Dublin on Oct. 8, and co-located with Embedded Linux Conference Europe.
I attended this year’s mrmcd, a cozy conference in Darmstadt, Germany. As in the previous years, it’s a 350 people event with a relaxed atmosphere. I really enjoy going to these mid-size events with a decent selection of talks and attentive guests.

- Ubuntu 15.10 Is Now Powered by Linux Kernel 4.2.1, Final Beta Freeze Now in Effect
I have been helping folks break away from Windows and switch to either Linux Mint or Ubuntu for a while now and I’m going to share part of an email I got this morning with you. It really exemplifies the reaction I get when people start using a Linux distro for the first time. You just have to get them in front of it and let them experience it for themselves.
