I installed Linux on my dads work computer because it was too slow and couldn't play minecraft, but after doing so. .I realized that it had all of his work files on it and they were erased (I didn't think the install would do that)
now I need help getting the files back or my dad is going to be extremely angry when he gets home and I'll get grounded
please helpsubmitted by /u/debianiscool
In part one of this series, What Is Kubernetes?, and in part two, Why Choose Kubernetes to Manage Containerized Applications?, we learned what Kubernetes does, its architecture, and how it compares to similar container orchestrators. Now we'll learn how Kubernetes was descended from the secret Google Borg project.
Reddit: I see a lot of criticism of GNOME devs, but never their own perspective or responses. Anyone know why?
I've heard people say that GNOME devs:
- Think their users are stupid and don't know what's best for them.
- Are hostile to outside contributions and feedback (from the community, but also e.g. from Canonical).
- Use their position to push Red Hat technologies like systemd.
- Are in their own bubble and are very out of touch with the Linux ecosystem (one person recently said that a GNOME dev was not aware of the existence of XFCE; I'm not sure how that happens).
But I've never head GNOME devs reply to these criticisms (or any of the others). Does anyone know why that is, or where I could find them sticking up for themselves or explaining their take on their decisions or on whatever controversy?submitted by /u/thinkpadkeyboard

Some facts after the Upacalypse that happened on April 5th, 2017:
Ubuntu's chief, Mark Shuttleworth, hates the most well known KDE developer (basically something like a KDE's spokesperson - even though KDE devs don't like to be called leaders) Jonathan Riddell and possible others like the idea creator of KDE Plasma - Aron Seigo
He teamed up with Microsoft and now Redhat and Gnome - is probably willing to axe snap and maybe even sell the Ubuntu to Redhat over the years - because he is in bad financial situation when compared with 2011
He bashed the FSF movement and community, is not willing to listen to people's criticism.
Should KDE team up with Yunit? What do you think? Both teams could implement their own vision while still trying to make the other DE compatible. Qt is much more advanced than GTK+ and Yunit and KDE both use Qt - so it seems like a logical step for me. What do you think?submitted by /u/liutnenant
Long story short, this is a fine laptop—and its hardware makes it a far better choice than the Dell XPS 13 for video encoding, compiling code, or other heavy computing tasks. But the OS it comes with is not optimized for the hardware. Hell, it’s not a stretch to say that the OS keeps this PC from being the workstation it's supposed to be. If anything, this PC is a case study in why PC makers who want to ship desktop Linux should pay attention to what they are doing before they push a product to market. The whole idea of buying a Linux laptop is to avoid these types of troubles, after all. In that respect, the Precision 5520 feels like a step back from the great platform we saw in the 2016 XPS 13.
Ask a Red Hat salesperson what is her favorite product to sell, and she’ll probably tell you OpenShift. Close on its heels, however, is Ansible, the open source automation platform Red Hat acquired in late 2015. Ansible has been on a tear of late, quickly rising to become the hottest devops tool in the market.
