alternativenayk.wordpress: In the days when Ubuntu 9.10, Mandriva 2010 and openSUSE 11.2 are having their releases, installing PCLinuxOS 2009.2 seems like taking a step backwards. But how could I refuse to try what I had considered to be my favourite Linux distro?

helium.com: Let me preface this by saying that I do not usually have good experiences with Mandriva based releases. Knowing PCLinuxOS is based on Mandriva, and knowing that it was supposed to be a live CD release, I booted up my VirtualBoxOSE and set about running and possibly installing PCLinuxOS.

Wine-Staging 2.0-RC5 and 'Squad' Might be Coming to GNU/Linux

  • Wine-Staging 2.0-RC5 Improves Compatibility For Origin, GOG Galaxy & More
    Wine-Staging 2.0-RC5 was released on Sunday as the newest version of this experimental/testing Wine build. This time around there are some exciting new patches. On top of re-basing off Friday's Wine 2.0-rc5 release and continuing to maintain quite a number of patches that haven't yet made their way into mainline Wine, a few more patches were added. Upstream Wine is currently under a code freeze until the 2.0 release later this month but that doesn't stop the Wine-Staging crew.
  • Release 2.0-rc5
    Wine Staging 2.0-rc5 improves the compatibility of various applications that require at least Windows Vista or Windows 7. This includes Origin, Uplay, GOG Galaxy and many more. Several bugs were fixed in the PE loader to support loading of packed executables with truncated headers and/or on-the-fly section decompression. If you are using the 64 bit version of Wine, you may also benefit from the memory manager improvements, which allow applications to reserve/allocate more than 32 GB of virtual memory. The memory allocations are now only constrained by resource limitations of the hardware / the operating system and no longer by an artificial design limit in Wine.
  • Looks like FPS game 'Squad' might be coming to Linux soon
    The game uses Unreal Engine and we know already how iffy their Linux support actually is. Hopefully they won't come across too many troubles.

Security News

  • Microsoft slates end to security bulletins in February [iophk: "further obscuring"; Ed: See this]
    Microsoft next month will stop issuing detailed security bulletins, which for nearly 20 years have provided individual users and IT professionals information about vulnerabilities and their patches. One patching expert crossed his fingers that Microsoft would make good on its pledge to publish the same information when it switches to a new online database. "I'm on the fence right now," said Chris Goettl, product manager with patch management vendor Shavlik, of the demise of bulletins. "We'll have to see [the database] in February before we know how well Microsoft has done [keeping its promise]."
  • Reflected XSS through AngularJS sandbox bypass causes password exposure of McDonald users
