Recently, Linux desktop usage has grown from 2.14 percent to 3.23 percent according to NetMarketShare. Much of this increase appears to have come from Linux-based Chromebooks, which are likely undercounted due in part to their widespread use in schools.

Reddit: Using Gnu Emacs or Steve Zimmerman exposes Richard Stallman

Stallman <rms@mit-prep> Nobody has any reason to be afraid to use or distribute GNU Emacs. It is well known that I do not believe any software is anyone's property. However, for the GNU project, I decided it was necessary to obey the law. I have refused to look at code I did not have permission to distribute. About 5% of GNU Emacs is close to (though quite a bit changed from) an old version of Gosling Emacs. I am distributing it for Fen Labalme, who received permission from Gosling to distribute it. It is therefore legal for me to do so. To be scrupulously legal, I put statements at the front of the files concerned, describing this situation. I don't see anything I should warn people about--except that Zimmerman is going to try to browbeat them. submitted by /u/deepdistrust

Reddit: Is there SSH with the ease of use comparable to teamviewer?

Wednesday 25th of October 2017 08:46:11 PM

I was thinking on how would I go about SSH-ing inside the computer of someone who is new to linux. I know I could instruct him how to set up SSH (only in case he is in his private home), but wouldnt it be nice and cozy for him to just read a string of characters to me with which I could access his computer?

Is there one you would even fit in your preferred distribution for beginners? (regardless of the security implications of easily getting access to your computer from over the world)

EDIT: The title should have said "ease of access".

Reddit: Linux on the make: "Linux: the Gamers OS"

Wednesday 25th of October 2017 08:15:32 PM

Just to lighten up ...

From: (Sean Walton) Subject: Enough with the games! Date: 1997/01/14 Message-ID: <5bg0gs$>#1/1 X-Deja-AN: 209717646 organization: OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. newsgroups: comp.os.linux.development.system,comp.os.linux.advocacy, comp.os.linux.misc If you sent this, you need to do a better job of aliasing yourself. If not, you may want to find out who's routing through you. In response to your reproach, I _am_ working on free software for Linux. I am writing an expert system shell. What my statement was trying to do was to rally others--especially those in the academic arena--to do more projects and give back to the community. I am also stating a concern that Linux, for all the power that it has gets far too many game developers when it can do so much more. Think about this as a title: "Linux: the Gamers OS". Kind of sounds like Atari or Commodor, doesn't it? It will, and it will have the same puny following. Professionals won't use it, because it would not be a "serious OS". Businesses won't develop for it, because it a Gamers OS. I think we need to stop attacking each other and get cracking at making Linux better & better. The effort we then would expend would be more productive and affective, wouldn't you say? -Sean Walton, KB7rfa ---------- From: Someone To: walton Subject: Free Apps Date: Monday, January 13, 1997 10:35PM If you want free apps, write them your damn self and stop whining for other people to do it. ------ Message Header Follows ------ Received: from by (PostalUnion/SMTP(tm) v2.1.9a for Windows NT(tm)) id AA-1997Jan13.223053.1083.452927; Mon, 13 Jan 1997 22:30:53 -0500 Received: from by (5.0/SMI-4.1) id AA17027; Mon, 13 Jan 1997 22:30:56 +0500 Received: from ( []) by (8.8.3/8.6.9) with SMTP id TAA05982 for <>; Mon, 13 Jan 1997 19:30:22 -0800 (PST) Date: Mon, 13 Jan 1997 19:30:22 -0800 (PST) Message-Id: <> From: Someone <> To: <> Subject: Free Apps content-length: 94 ---------------------------------------------------------------- Sean Walton ( wrote: : Listen everyone, we need some _REAL_ free apps and UI that : will attract more of the serious professionals and users : to Linux.

  • Stable release: HardenedBSD-stable 11-STABLE v1100054
  • Kaspersky blames NSA hack on infected Microsoft software
    Embattled computer security firm Kaspersky Lab said Thursday that malware-infected Microsoft Office software and not its own was to blame for the hacking theft of top-secret US intelligence materials. Adding tantalizing new details to the cyber-espionage mystery that has rocked the US intelligence community, Kaspersky also said there was a China link to the hack.
  • Investigation Report for the September 2014 Equation malware detection incident in the US
    In early October, a story was published by the Wall Street Journal alleging Kaspersky Lab software was used to siphon classified data from an NSA employee’s home computer system. Given that Kaspersky Lab has been at the forefront of fighting cyberespionage and cybercriminal activities on the Internet for over 20 years now, these allegations were treated very seriously. To assist any independent investigators and all the people who have been asking us questions whether those allegations were true, we decided to conduct an internal investigation to attempt to answer a few questions we had related to the article and some others that followed it:
  • Kaspersky: Clumsy NSA leak snoop's PC was packed with malware
    Kaspersky Lab, the US government's least favorite computer security outfit, has published its full technical report into claims Russian intelligence used its antivirus tools to steal NSA secrets. Last month, anonymous sources alleged that in 2015, an NSA engineer took home a big bunch of the agency's cyber-weapons to work on them on his home Windows PC, which was running the Russian biz's antimalware software – kind of a compliment when you think about it. The classified exploit code and associated documents on the personal system were then slurped by Kremlin spies via his copy of Kaspersky antivirus, it was claimed.

OSS Leftovers

  • Open Source Networking Days: Think Globally, Collaborate Locally
    Something that we’ve learned at The Linux Foundation over the years is that there is just no substitute for periodic, in-person, face-to-face collaboration around the open source technologies that are rapidly changing our world. It’s no different for the open networking projects I work with as end users and their ecosystem partners grapple with the challenges and opportunities of unifying various open source components and finding solutions to accelerate network transformation. This fall, we decided to take The Linux Foundation networking projects (OpenDaylight, ONAP, OPNFV, and others) on the road to Europe and Japan by working with local site hosts and network operators to host Open Source Networking Days in Paris, Milan, Stockholm, London, Tel Aviv, and Yokohama.
  • The Open-Source Driving Simulator That Trains Autonomous Vehicles
    Self-driving cars are set to revolutionize transport systems the world over. If the hype is to be believed, entirely autonomous vehicles are about to hit the open road. The truth is more complex. The most advanced self-driving technologies work only in an extremely limited set of environments and weather conditions. And while most new cars will have some form of driver assistance in the coming years, autonomous cars that drive in all conditions without human oversight are still many years away. One of the main problems is that it is hard to train vehicles to cope in all situations. And the most challenging situations are often the rarest. There is a huge variety of tricky circumstances that drivers rarely come across: a child running into the road, a vehicle driving on the wrong side of the street, an accident immediately ahead, and so on.
  • Fun with Le Potato
    At Linux Plumbers, I ended up with a Le Potato SBC. I hadn't really had time to actually boot it up until now. They support a couple of distributions which seem to work fine if you flash them on. I mostly like SBCs for having actual hardware to test on so my interest tends to be how easily can I get my own kernel running. Most of the support is not upstream right now but it's headed there. The good folks at BayLibre have been working on getting the kernel support upstream and have a tree available for use until then.
  • PyConf Hyderabad 2017

I was super excited about this conference, the main reason is being able to meet more Python developers from India. We are a large country, and we certainly need more local conferences :)

  • What Is Teletype For Atom? How To Code With Fellow Developers In Real Time?
    In a short period of three years, GitHub’s open source code editor has become one of the most popular options around. In our list of top text editors for Linux, Atom was featured at #2. From time to time, GitHub keeps adding new features to this tool to make it even better. Just recently, with the help of Facebook, GitHub turned Atom into a full-fledged IDE. As GitHub is known to host some of the world’s biggest open source collaborative projects, it makes perfect sense to add the collaborative coding ability to Atom. To make this possible, “Teletype for Atom” has just been announced.

Ubuntu: New Users, Unity Remix, 18.04 LTS News

  • How to Get Started With the Ubuntu Linux Distro
    The Linux operating system has evolved from a niche audience to widespread popularity since its creation in the mid 1990s, and with good reason. Once upon a time, that installation process was a challenge, even for those who had plenty of experience with such tasks. The modern day Linux, however, has come a very long way. To that end, the installation of most Linux distributions is about as easy as installing an application. If you can install Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop, you can install Linux. Here, we’ll walk you through the process of installing Ubuntu Linux 17.04, which is widely considered one of the most user-friendly distributions. (A distribution is a variation of Linux, and there are hundreds and hundreds to choose from.)
