Ubuntu Training Program Improved Throughout USA

Filed under
Ubuntu

One of Ubuntu's strategies for gaining a larger user base is providing quality, comprehensive training for everyone who desires. For that purpose, Canonical has recently included Fast Lane and Bridge Education in its Ubuntu Training Partner Programme, signing and training instructors. The courses are held all across the United States of America.

There are two types of courses available: one for training System Administrators in maximizing the efficiency of Ubuntu in offices – consisting of two, 5-day courses, and a quicker, 2-day, desktop-user oriented course that focuses on providing an easy, hassle-free switch from other platforms. Trainees are also familiarized with the most important aspects of the operating system such as office suites, Internet browsing and connectivity, graphic tools or multimedia players.

All the courses are available in both classroom and e-learning formats.

Privacy and Tails 1.3

Privacy and security are difficult to come by in our progressively connected world. Advertisers track our browsing habits, employers monitor productivity and government agencies monitor our communications. Most operating systems do not take steps to protect our privacy or our identities, two things which are increasingly difficult to guard. Tails is a Linux distribution that is designed to help us stay anonymous on-line and protect our identity. Tails is a Debian-based live disc that we can use to scrub our files of meta data, browse the web with some degree of anonymity and send private messages. According to the project's website, "Tails is a live operating system, that you can start on almost any computer from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card. It aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity, and helps you to: use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship; all connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor network; leave no trace on the computer you are using unless you ask it explicitly; use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, emails and instant messaging."

Review: Lenovo X1 Carbon 3rd generation and Linux

Considering that the fix for the first issue is widely available in most distributions and the second one is only a modprobe away, I’d say this laptop is pretty darned Linux compatible. I’m currently running Fedora 21 without any problems. Read more
