For many years AT&T has been on the forefront of virtualizing a Tier 1 carrier network. They’ve done so in a very open fashion and are actively participating in, and driving, many open sources initiatives. Their open initiatives include Domain 2.0, ECOMP, and CORD, all of which are driving innovation in the global service provider market. Chris Rice, Sr.
IBM, Microsoft, Oracle beware: Russia wants open source, sees you as security risk
Russia is drafting a new law requiring Russian government agencies to give preference to open source and to block US software from computer systems, citing security concerns.
Just weeks after Moscow committed to removing Microsoft Outlook and Exchange on 600,000 systems under orders from Russian president Vladimir Putin, the nation's lower house, the State Duma, is drafting a bill to make it harder for agencies even to buy Russian software products that are based on foreign-made proprietary middleware and programming frameworks.
The bill marks Russia's latest attempt at substituting imported software with local products, but casts a wider net than existing restrictions on IT procurement by agencies and state-run enterprises.
Russia Weighs Replacing IBM, Microsoft With Open-Source Software
Russia is taking another step to reduce dependence on Oracle Corp., Microsoft Corp. and International Business Machines Corp. technologies in the country’s $3 billion software market amid political tensions with the U.S.
The State Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, is drafting a bill to restrict government agencies from buying licensed software, giving preference to open-source software. This would complement legislation that curbed state purchases of foreign programs last year, restricting the choice to about 2,000 local software makers.
"Many local software firms are offering products based on foreign frameworks such as IBM’s WebSphere or Microsoft’s ASP.net," said Andrey Chernogorov, executive secretary of the Duma’s commission on strategic information systems. "We are seeking to close this loophole for state purchases as it causes security risks."
The end of IBM’s partnership with Russian vendor Lanit last year created a potential vulnerability for the government’s website zakupki.gov.ru, which is based on a proprietary IBM platform, according to an explanatory note to the draft law. Additionally, license fees that Russian software makers pay foreign partners inflate their products’ cost of use.
Some Russian regional administrations already started switching from Oracle to free database software adapted for their needs by local programmers, according to Duma documents.

I'm looking to have a box I can SSH into whenever I feel like and have a couple of personal things hosted on. I've tried dyndns but I don't really like the idea, took a max of two days to start getting root login attempts spammed from China. (fail2ban and no root login on ssh was configured so not a problem, just felt invasive).
So who do you use and do you like it?submitted by /u/-PandaJack-
Reddit: Is it possible to use GNOME Desktop Sharing Server to share the screen to an Android Tablet via WiFi?
On Ubuntu 16.04, if you go to Startup Applications applet, you'll find this GNOME Desktop Sharing Server that most people just disable.
I was wondering whether it is possible to share this screen locally to an android tablet by creating my Ubuntu machine a Hotspot or something? The reason I ask this is because I want to use the drawing tools like Inkscape and Gimp from my tablet as using a stylus seems far better for digital drawing than a laptop mouse.submitted by /u/rms_returns
When I was 17 years old, I started using Linux because I wanted a desktop that resembled my brother-in-law's Gentoo laptop, which used the KDE environment. Instead, I got the now-nostalgic brown and orange GNOME 2 environment because I'd installed Ubuntu. (Ubuntu has since changed its color palette.)
This project was incredibly exciting to me because it demonstrated the freedom that digital art represents. Digital art allows traditional audio and visual methods to take on new forms by adding layers of data and interactivity. This means that your project can respond to events happening in its environment, or on the other side of the world. When a project begins acquiring hardware components like lighting or moving objects, the term digital art seems inadequate since the entire environment becomes the art piece.
It is well-established that the open source movement has created an enormous amount of value for businesses and organizations. Often overlooked, however, is the amount of value that it has created for those looking to pursue creative ventures. The open source community has created a plethora of libraries and frameworks that reduce the barrier of entry for aspiring digital artists and musicians. Though there are many out there, I would like to focus on Processing and Arduino because they have most shaped my approach to both art and programming.
I am currently using a windows app to do this but I am wondering if there is a faster way than the windows app. I have 100000 or so webpages with all sorts of info on trading card games, Actual card itself. In side the folders it is sorted out based on release title /tradingcard/MTG/Core2016/Card 1of450 Now if I want to see a specific card I do a search all for that name of card. It does bring up multiple cards which I want to do. looking for a command or program to use instead of windows. Some times I know that linux it is faster than with windows.submitted by /u/keyboard2016
