TuxMachines: Linux Mint, please stop discouraging users from upgrading

Thursday 22nd of December 2016 02:48:32 AM

The new version of Linux Mint has been released so I went ahead and downloaded it and reviewed it on my latest Dell XPS 13 Kaby Lake machine. That’s when I came across the persistent Linux Mint messaging to its users that discourages software updates. That spreads a very dangerous notion that once you get everything working, you shouldn't touch it.

Linux Mint has experienced some security breaches lately, so they should not be encouraging such behavior. Linux Mint project leaders seem to undermine the value of updates and upgrades. Clement Lefebvre, the founder and project leader of Linux Mint wrote in a blog post:

TuxMachines: Firefox takes the next step towards rolling out multi-process to everyone

Thursday 22nd of December 2016 02:47:09 AM

With Firefox 50, Mozilla has rolled out the first major piece of its new multi-process architecture. Firefox 50 is also Firefox's current stable release.

Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Safari all have a multiple process design that separates their rendering engine—the part of the browser that reads and interprets HTML, CSS, and JavaScript—from the browser frame. They do this for stability reasons (if the rendering process crashes, it doesn't kill the entire browser) and security reasons (the rendering process can be run in a low-privilege sandbox, so exploitable flaws in the rendering engine are harder to take advantage of).

The number of the stable open source distributions available with comprehensive support and maintenance goes well beyond common knowledge. Industry giants, successful SMB players, and mom and pop businesses are finding good reasons to use open source. Even IBM uses open source for internal business reasons.

  • Puppet Launches its Latest State of DevOps Survey
    Folks who are focused on container technology and virtual machines as they are implemented today might want to give a hat tip to some of the early technologies and platforms that arrived in the same arena. Among those, Puppet, which was built on the legacy of the venerable Cfengine system, was an early platform that helped automate lots of virtual machine implementations.
