It’s an obvious comparison: both Ubuntu and Superman are leaders, they are dependable, and they are arguably the most well known of their kind. Both are security minded and concerned with privacy, while Canonical’s laser-like focus in pursuit of convergence is nearly as intense as the red-hot beam fired out of Superman’s eyes!
Powerful, upfront and well intentioned (sometimes to a fault) the famous Linux distribution has much in common with the most famous superhero of all time.
Instead of running Windows, these lightweight, inexpensive notebooks are based entirely on Google’s Chrome web browser. So while you can’t install traditional programs such as Office and Photoshop, you can use web-based substitutes like the free Office Online and Pixlr. In exchange, you’ll get a computer that boots up quickly, is safe from viruses, doesn’t have any obnoxious bloatware and is optimized for browsing the web.
A Canadian technology company has started shipping notebooks and laptops loaded with Linux due to demand from the younger generation, the owner of the company says.
Braden Taylor of Eurocom, a company based in Ontario, said he shipped systems all over the world, including to Australia.
"We are finding that more and more of the younger generation are moving to Linux for a variety of reasons," he said, in response to queries.
"We are getting more and more inquiries about Ubuntu and Mint from the younger generation all over the world. They like that it is a low-cost alternative."
Productivity is essential to anyone's day, no matter who you are or where you work. In this article, I'll be sharing some of my favorite Linux applications that I rely on to keep my productivity levels in check. I'll also share some of my rationale behind me recommending each application and why you might wish to consider it as well.

German researchers develop defense software: Potential protection against the "Hacienda" intelligence programSubmitted by Roy Schestowitz on Friday 15th of August 2014 04:22:39 PM Filed under
Grothoff and his students at TUM have developed the "TCP Stealth" defense software, which can inhibit the identification of systems through both Hacienda and similar cyberattack software and, as a result, the undirected and massive takeover of computers worldwide, as Grothoff explains. "TCP Stealth" is free software that has as its prerequisites particular system requirements and computer expertise, for example, use of the GNU/Linux operating system. In order to make broader usage possible in the future, the software will need further development.
We are moving our production GNOME desktop to new physical hardware. After some discussions and reviewing work loads, we decided for now to stay with GNOME 2. The older server was cloned and was finally moved to the new hardware. The server is 100% solid state drives with 80 hyperthreaded cores. This increased capacity was needed for the next project:
