In some cases that might be impossible, meaning popular applications will no longer be available.

  • Story Type: News Story
If you're launching a company, you might believe you shouldn't have to deal with issues like personnel development and company culture. After all, as a startup you're only concerned with the development and rapid evolution of your own product and services, right? This kind of thinking is short-term thinking. Successful startups develop organizations with long-term strategies in mind. Startups really should think about—and prepare the groundwork for—their own company culture from beginning, so they can scale it over time as they grow.

New story! Hardening Docker Hosts

Root inside your containers is the root user on your host. Securing your Docker containers and the hosts upon which they run is key to sustaining reliable and available services.

New story! How many of your games run on Linux?

Gamer? Check. Linux user? Check. For years, one of the top excuses I heard from friends who would otherwise have switched to Linux long ago is that they just couldn't give up their Windows-only games. I can empathize. I was a dual-booter for years for exactly this reason, and it made making the switch harder for me. After all, once I'm booted into one operating system, the temptation is to stay there rather than rebooting once gameplay is over. Today, the landscape is far different. It's much easier than it used to be for a gamer to be a Linux user, and vice versa. read more
