One ongoing question kernel developers face is the best way to delete data so no one else can
recover it. Typically there are simple tools to undelete files that are deleted
accidentally, although some filesystems make this easier than others.
This tutorial shows the installation of a Ubuntu 15.04 minimal server in detail with many screenshots. The purpose of the guide is to show the basic installation of Ubuntu 15.04 that can be used as basis for our other Ubuntu 15.04 tutorials here at howtoforge like our perfect server guides.
In today's open source roundup: Which problems stop Linux from dominating the desktop? Plus: Linux gamers and Nvidia graphics cards. And new Firefox features might not work on unencrypted sites.
Now, let’s go back to 2006: It would have been nice to have these articles when I started out in Linux and FOSS nine years ago, introduced by the IT guy from the Green Party of California when I asked where I’d get Adobe products for my statewide campaign for office that year. During the campaign, I kept thinking about how great this paradigm is — people working together to make software free (as in freedom and, in many cases, beer) for public use — and switched gears to work to advocate for FOSS.

Valve has recently gone through a major PR debacle after the company announced that it's implementing paid mods for games and Skyrim in particular. Their decision was short-lived, and it was retracted, but they have managed to incur the rage of the community.

We already covered the basics of shell scripting such as accepting inputs, process data through arithmetic operations and generating and displaying output in the previous series of this tutorial. In this series, we will go deeper to a more advanced topic in a programming language -- making decisions in a program, but this time we will do it using bash shell.
There are many commercial VPN gateways available, which come with their own proprietary VPN client software. While there are also open-source VPN server/client alternatives, they are typically lacking in sophisticated IPsec support, such as Internet Key Exchange (IKE) which is a standard IPsec protocol used to secure VPN key exchange and authentication.
In today's open source roundup: Ubuntu is working on a phone that doubles as a desktop PC. Would you buy it? Plus: DistroWatch reviews Debian 8 Jessie. And Android Lollipop adoption rate nearly at 10%.
I'm very excited about Joshua Lee's talk on the Drupal-powered International Biosecurity Intelligence System (IBIS) at DrupalCon 2015. Though I'm no biosecurity expert, the aggregation methods and process workflow for gathering biosecurity information is relevant to many industries. In his talk, the technology for creating this data aggregation system will be covered, as well as how the Drupal community can both benefit and contribute to this project.
I personally like Google's Chrome interface. It's simple, fast, elegant
and did I mention fast? Unfortunately, I don't like how locked down the
Chrome OS is on a Chromebook, nor do I like its total dependence on Google. I
also don't like the lack of ability to install Chrome easily on generic
hardware. Thankfully, Budgie is here to help.
The project will give libraries, museums, and archives of all types and sizes an out-of-the-box open source solution for managing their digital content and exposing what they have to the world.

The spread of encryption is posting public safety challenges and making it harder for the government to fight both criminals and terrorists, said Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson. But for security vendors providing encryption technology to enterprise customers, any tampering with encryption protocols would do more damage than harm. Here are seven ways security pros believe the DHS is wrong on encryption.

Some major open source foundations now require "patent pledges." Here's what they are, and why they're being requested.
In my last Opensource.com article, I wrote about biicode's decision to go open source once we reached 10,000 users.
After the announcement, our community growth skyrocketed. Our investors were so impressed by the welcoming of our open source announcement that they let us go ahead with open sourcing biicode early. We worked hard to release most of it in biicode 3.0.

People in tech companies and particularly in open source communities believe in and value meritocracy—letting the best ideas win. One thing that's become increasingly clear to me over the past few years is this: meritocracy is a great driver of innovation, but if we want to get to the best ideas, we need diversity of thought and an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome to participate and offer different perspectives. Indeed, to live up to our ideal of meritocracy, we must consistently question and seek to improve it.
