Okay so I am a bit of a linux noob... I am trying to make a usb key that when plugged in and booted (like you would a hard drive or a cd) runs ubuntu linux. Instead what I made was a usb key that when ran starts installing ubuntu linux, and deleting the old os.
These are the steps I took (so you can point out my idiot mistake that I've yet to notice)
-1 Installed Win32DiskImager -2 Downloaded Ubuntu Linux 16.04 server edition off of the official website. -3 Used DiskImager to write the Iso file to my 4g usb key. (according to DiskImager it was successful) -4 Plugged it into my old windows seven laptop to test -5 realized that it was installing ubuntu but deleting windows 7 -6 Noped out and rebooted my computer (Still runs windows fine)submitted by /u/adadadadadfgagaga
Half the internet is blocked. Even Google was blocked at first, it takes multiple day to process an access request.
I tried a socks 5 proxy at port 80 on my own server... as port 80 is open, but susprisingly that didn't work! I am not looking for advice in "do what your employer says" or "find a new employer". I will have an Ubuntu virtual machine soon and planning to using the internet freely somehow. Outgoing SSH is blocked too.
I have a server via Hetzner with 3 IP's. Are there still any ways I can use this to circumvent the firewall? I cannot connect to it via SSH via the laptop, but I can prepare it from home and access it via HTTP.submitted by /u/ujjain
On Thursday the RADV open-source Radeon Vulkan driver was merged into mainline Mesa and I provided bleeding-edge RADV vs. AMDGPU-PRO benchmark results for these two independent AMD Linux Vulkan driver implementations, plus comparison results to the OpenGL drivers in the same games. For those that have been wondering how the NVIDIA proprietary Vulkan driver compares to AMD's two Vulkan driver options, here are some fresh benchmark results.

Victory Icon Theme for Linux
Looking for a Linux icon set that’s a little understated and less in your face? Check out Victory.
Bombastic name aside, there’s nothing particularly imposing about the Victory icon set. It doesn’t dominant the desktop in the way that something that some modern themes, like the bright and bashful Kylin icon set, do.

ok first of all i really don't know anything about linux but i wanted to learn about it and start using it. i haven't build a desktop yet so i tried installing it on my macbook air. i downloaded linux 18 with cinnamon but when i tried to open it with the default "diskimagemounter" it said it couldn't open it because there was "no mountable file systems" I'm sorry if this post shouldn't belong here or if anybody really knows enough about OS X to help. thank you.submitted by /u/RawrySkiddlz
