Linux Professional Institute puts Linux in the classrooms

Filed under
Linux

Do you want a job in IT? Then you really need to learn Linux and open-source software.

When I was at the open-source OSCon convention earlier this year, everyone, and I mean everyone, including Microsoft, was looking to hire people with Linux and open-source experience. A recent Dice and Linux Foundation survey found that 93 percent of employers were looking to hire Linux staffers in the next six months and that 90 percent were having trouble finding qualified individuals.

The problem is that there aren't enough Linux-savvy people around. The Linux Professional Institute (LPI), the oldest, non-vendor linked Linux certification organization, has a solution: The LPI Academy.

A Visual Review to deepin 15.4 GNU/Linux Beauty

deepin 15.4 is really beautiful in every single detail. The beauty of deepin lies on its simplicity, drop shadow and translucency style, with completeness of feature. All the beauty cost only around 730MB of RAM at idle time. It's so user-friendly until I believe kids can use GNU/Linux easier with this. It has its native applications that are fulfilling daily needs, complete in feature, and always with pretty look. The desktop menu understands the users, with greatly accessible features. The Control Center is great as well, making the users have complete control with less learning curve. I believe anyone formerly using Windows, MacOS, Android, even any GNU/Linux distro will be easy to switch to deepin 15.4. Read more

Q4OS 1.8.4, Orion

The new Q4OS 'Orion' 1.8.4 stable release is out to implement several improvements and fixes. The most significant new feature is integration of alternative desktop environments into the native Q4OS 'Desktop profiler' utility. Users can now select alternative desktops to install and use alongside the default Q4OS Trinity desktop. LXQT support has been depreciated in Q4OS Orion, while we intend to support it thoroughly in the Q4OS 'Scorpion' edition. Icedove messaging application is no more available by the Q4OS installer, as it has been replaced by the real Thunderbird 45.8 release. Read more
