KDE picks Kim Kardashian to promote next release

The KDE Desktop Project has hit upon the idea of having the American socialite Kim Kardashian promote its next release.

KDE is one of the two major desktops for Linux and most of its applications have names beginning with "K". Kardashian manages to keep her name in the headlines all the time, most recently by releasing a sex tape which led to the calling off of her marriage to American sports personality, Reggie Bush.

KDE chief Matthias Ettrich told a press conference in Hamburg: "It's not often that we come across such a perfect fit. Where would you find a prominent person whose name and surname both begin with K? She's the perfect choice to promote KDE. She will give us exposure like nobody else can."

7 tools for analyzing performance in Linux with bcc/BPF

I'll discuss one way to use BPF on the Fedora and Red Hat family of Linux distributions, demonstrating on Fedora 26. BPF can run user-defined sandboxed programs in the kernel to add new custom capabilities instantly. It's like adding superpowers to Linux, on demand. Examples of what you can use it for include: Read more
