Reddit: Is mongodb database ACID compliant enough for Inventory/CRM/Accounting systems of small businesses?
I'm a programmer but know very less about the DBA level intricacies of databases. I want to understand the trade-off that one makes to achieve a better performance of mongodb against the robustness of traditional sql databases like mysql/postgresql?
If I were to implement an Accounting/CRM/Inventory system (or even an eCommerce system), how will this ACID compliance of MongoDB affect the correctness of data in each case.
I want to understand that if mongodb was lacking in ACID compliance in any way, why is it so popular choice today among lots of developers?submitted by /u/rms_returns

How Windows 10 became malware
I asked her whether she had accidentally clicked “OK” on any upgrade notifications, ignored any warnings that she had received or gotten any other notices about the upgrade. No on all counts, she answered before leaving to wrestle with her new operating system.
I admit to having been skeptical. Would Microsoft really take over someone’s computer without warning and install a significant chunk of software without explicit permission? That’s what malware does, I thought, not software from one of the biggest tech firms on the planet with the largest operating system installed base on desktop and laptops PCs.
Turns out, she was right. And I wasn’t the only tech writer whose spouse had this experience: The same thing happened to the wife of PC World’s Brad Chacos.
All this made me wonder: If software from any other company behaved the way the Windows 10 upgrade does, would it be considered malware?
We are not tricking anyone into installing Windows 10: Microsoft [Ed: Microsoft is lying, again.]
Microsoft said it is not tricking users on Windows 7 and 8.1 to upgrade to Windows 10, as was recently reported.
Recent changes in the way the Windows 10 upgrade is delivered to customers is an effort to ensure that everyone who wants their free upgrade to Windows 10 receives it, said Microsoft.

Tails, the anonymity-focused Linux distribution with deep Tor integration, reaches version 2.4
Tails is a Linux distribution most famously used by Edward Snowden. Boot Tails from a live DVD, USB drive, or SD card and it will turn any PC into a more private and anonymous system. Tails forces all network activity to go through the Tor network, preserving anonymity and bypassing Internet censorship. Shut down your computer and the memory will be wiped, with no trace of the Tails activity left on the system.
This important Linux distribution has been advancing steadily with release after release since I last covered it with the release of Tails 1.4. The project just released Tails 2.4 on June 7, 2016.

Open source hypervisor runs multiple OS in IoT designs
Designed for a small footprint, the L4Re hypervisor, which is maintained by Kernkonzept, can run on the hardware virtualization technology in MIPS CPUs. The aim of this is to provide more efficient context switching and to make better use of CPU cycles.
Git 2.8.4 Source Code Management System Brings More Bug Fixes and Improvements
Git, the open-source and cross-platform distributed version control system, has been updated to version 2.8.4, a maintenance release that adds assorted bugfixes and new features to the current stable 2.8 branch of the software.
Git 2.8.4 is the fourth point release in the Git 2.8 stable series, released three weeks after the third maintenance build. Git 2.8 is a major update that everyone should use, as it brought many exciting new features, such as parallel fetch of submodules, the ability to tell Git not to guess your identity, as well as support for turning off Git's smudge and clean filters.

OnePlus 3 Camera Samples Released; Smartphone Leaked in Numerous Images
There is little left to the imagination when it comes to the OnePlus 3. The smartphone has been subjected to numerous leaks ahead of its June 14 unveil, and now, we get treated with camera samples, and some leaked pricing details.
After releasing camera samples a few days ago, OnePlus has released more images to show what the OnePlus 3 camera can do. The four images are stunning; capturing movement, depth of field, and colours adeptly.
The company in the meanwhile has also released the kernel and device tree of OxygenOS to the community for further development.
No Oxygen Open Source — Personal Apology Regarding Misreporting
Yesterday, we pushed out an article where we claimed that OnePlus had open sourced OxygenOS. The basis of our claim was the recent activity on OnePlus’s github. Based on the information that we had on hand at that exact moment, and a precursory look at the code that indicated a lot of code pulled over from CAF, we wrongly concluded that OnePlus had open sourced part of OxygenOS.
What happened in fact was that OnePlus released the device tree and some HALs for the OnePlus 2. This is still big news by itself, as it will be of great use for 3rd party development efforts on the OnePlus 2. However, it is not in any way related to OnePlus open sourcing their OS.

open source modular design: the business benefits
Open source hardware, as defined by the Open source Hardware Association, lowers the barriers to innovation by making reuse and redesign explicitly allowed from day one, without needing to involve a lawyer. You are explicitly allowed to make money from it. That’s expected and encouraged. Open source hardware has one very interesting difference from software. Nobody seriously expects hardware to be free, so the business model for open source hardware is the same as proprietary. People pay for objects.
Open access: All human knowledge is there—so why can’t everybody access it?
He went some way to achieving that goal of providing general access to human knowledge. In 1856, after 20 years of labour as Keeper of Printed Books, he had helped boost the British Museum's collection to over half a million books, making it the largest library in the world at the time. But there was a serious problem: to enjoy the benefits of those volumes, visitors needed to go to the British Museum in London.
Imagine, for a moment, if it were possible to provide access not just to those books, but to all knowledge for everyone, everywhere—the ultimate realisation of Panizzi's dream. In fact, we don't have to imagine: it is possible today, thanks to the combined technologies of digital texts and the Internet. The former means that we can make as many copies of a work as we want, for vanishingly small cost; the latter provides a way to provide those copies to anyone with an Internet connection. The global rise of low-cost smartphones means that group will soon include even the poorest members of society in every country.

An iTWire article appears to have resulted in Linux Australia seeing the folly of not having proper arrangements in place for hosting its website.
Further, a member of Linux Australia has suggested the office-bearers should resign en masse for not anticipating a breakdown in hosting the organisation's website recently.
Linux Australia secretary, Sae Ra Germaine, posted to the Linux-aus mailing list in April to explain why the organisation experienced server downtime, ultimately because the team charged with managing this task, while recognising a risk of disruption, did not engage with the University hosting the server instead choosing only to liaise with ex-employees, and discontinued searching for a new host between December 2015 and March 2016.
LTFS – the Linear Tape File System – seemed like a great idea when it emerged but not many storage vendors seem to have made much of it. It puts a file system on top of a tape library and turns it into something like a tape-NAS, making it suitable for archive use cases.
