manilastandardtoday.com: THE TechCentral Web site recently ran a Q&A with Mark Shuttleworth, head honcho at Canonical and the man behind Ubuntu Linux. The interview was insightful, because Shuttleworth talked, not only about the future of Ubuntu, but also tackled the state of tablet computing as well as the dangers of software patents.

omgubuntu.co.uk: When reader Fabio Bier mailed in a photo of this familiar looking emblem atop a drain/man hole cover (spotted in Seville, Spain, fact fans) it got me thinking: does the ‘Ubuntu’ logo ever crop up in urban landscapes?

Security Leftovers

  • 66% of USB Flash Drives infected – don’t trust a stray [Ed: Windows]
    The problem is that the OS will automatically run a program that can install malware from a USB stick.
  • Dental Assn Mails Malware to Members
    The domain is used by crooks to infect visitors with malware that lets the attackers gain full control of the infected Windows computer.
  • Slack bot token leakage exposing business critical information
    Developers are leaking access tokens for Slack widely on GitHub, in public repositories, support tickets and public gists. They are extremely easy to find due to their structure. It is clear that the knowledge about what these tokens can be used for with malicious intent is not on top of people’s minds…yet. The Detectify team shows the impact, with examples, and explains how this could be prevented.

Debian and Devuan

  • An Open Letter to Linas Vepstas
    The entire essay continues on a similar note. Although the title implies this is a rant about Ubuntu and Debian, he seems to paint the entirety of Linux Land with the same broad brush. And that would be factually wrong. "Factually wrong" doesn't mean he hasn't pointed out some serious problems. He has. I and many other Linux users see the same problems he identifies. What's "factually wrong" is that these problems are built into the combination of kernel, system software, and applications generally called either "Linux" or "GNU/Linux". And his implication that there's no reasonable way for a user to avoid these problems is also factually wrong. The bottom line of my objection to his essay is this: Nobody should use software they don't like, especially if there's a reasonable alternative. And by extension, why is Linas still using Debian and Ubuntu and systemd and Firefox and Chrome and Gnome? There are reasonable alternatives to every single one of them.

LinuxFest NorthWest 2016 and foss-north

  • LinuxFest NorthWest 2016
    I was at LinuxFest NorthWest 2016 last weekend. I’ve been going to LFNW for several years now, and I look forward to it every year – it’s just a great conference, which has managed to grow to nearly 2000 registrations this year while keeping its community/grassroots feel. The talks are always widely varied and interesting, and there’s a great feeling that you could run into anyone doing anything – I spent an hour or two at the social event talking to a group of college students who run a college radio station entirely on F/OSS, which was awesome.
  • foss-north – Schedule available
    Just a short update on foss-north – the schedule is up. We have a whole list of speakers that I’m super excited about and tickets are selling well. I still don’t know what to expect, but more than 1/3 of the tickets are gone and the sales numbers are actually even better for the full priced tickets than the early birds.
