After three years of Linux, Munich reveals draft of crunch report that could decide its open source future
As for the implications of this interim report, Matthias Kirschner, president of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE), said its assessment of Accenture's findings is that the problems don't lie with the PC clients themselves but with the way they are managed and their associated backend infrastructure.
"The study does not mention any concrete problems with the PC clients (neither GNU/Linux nor proprietary). It highlights, that IT security, especially at the client level, is perceived as bad for getting things done.
Jack Nicklaus Perfect Golf has just launched with full Linux support and it actually looks pretty good.
I find golf games to be incredibly boring myself, it's one of the few things I actually prefer to just go out with a few friends and play for real. I doubt everyone has a golf course within walking distance though, so like everything it will have plenty of fans.

Ubuntu 16.04 Review: What’s New for Desktop Users
Ubuntu is a tricky distribution. As much as I love it on my home server, my desktop is a different ballgame.

So, if I were to use Ubuntu on my desktop, I would still choose LTS.
Workflow and efficiency geek talks Drush and Drupal
I started using Drupal because I needed an open source content management system (CMS) to use in several community projects. One of the projects I was involved with was just getting started and had narrowed its CMS selection down to either Drupal or Joomla.

I convinced them to go with the new Drupal 6 release and converted all of my other projects for consistency.
