By jumping into the fire. I started using Linux in the office lab for network experiments it became easier to use Linux functions like tcpdump than it to requisition the data scope to monitor networks. Then we needed a DNS for the lab, then a file server and ... so the little Linux box under my desk became part of the glue keeping things running. It was not the best solution, but it was fun. It sounds great, but we did have some formal training on other *ix's as the company was looking to migrate away from the proprietary OS's of the day.
Orbbec has launched an “Astra Pro” 3D depth camera, also available in a Linux-based “Persee” camera-PC, with an 8-meter range and 5-millimeter accuracy.
Shenzhen-based Orbbec has gone to Indiegogo to launch a campaign for a $79 and up Orbbec Astra Pro 3D depth sensing camera and a $179 and up Orbbec Persee camera and sensing computer aimed at developers. The devices enable 3D and gesture control applications for home, office, retail, education, entertainment, manufacturing, robotics, 3D scanning and printing, point cloud, and other creative and DIY projects, says Orbbec, which has been developing the technology for three years.
However, even if you're running a Linux-based OS on your desktop there's a good chance you're not vulnerable to the malware that is forcing machines to join this botnet.
