It didn't take me days to figure it out, but getting this Fedora 18 system to recognize and actually print on my el-cheapo HP LaserJet 1020 should have been a whole lot easier than it turned out to be.
Up this morning are benchmarks comparing the performance of Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 to Debian GNU/kFreeBSD 7.0, the version of the Debian operating system that ships the GNU user-land but replaces the Linux kernel from that of FreeBSD 9.0. Last December I ran the benchmarks for the extensive Debian Linux vs. Debian kFreeBSD With Squeeze & Wheezy testing. The results today remain largely the same but another round of benchmarks was carried out on a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop using the official Debian 7.0 release images that were released at the beginning of May.
This past week Canonical developers made a little more progress on their Mir Display Server stack and the next-generation Unity desktop interface. When it comes to Canonical's Wayland alternative for Ubuntu, last week they added LLTng trace-points to Mir, finished modifications to Mir to allow for performance analysis, and added/packaged a Mir stress testing tool. This week they will be aiming for continued Unity 8 integration, Android composition bypass support, and starting work on Mir-Mir support and supporting Mir-Mir in LightDM (running a shell on the system compositor).
The new version of Linux Mint has just been released. The developers have arrived at version 15, the nick name of this version is Olivia. A lot of the changes are specified in the release notes. Among the most striking a new managment for the proprietary drivers and the repository. Olivia is proving to be all that Linux Mint has tried to be since it was born. A stable operating system, elegant and easy to use. Rejecting the desktop environments of the latest Ubuntu and Fedora that have so divided the Gnu/Linux community, Linux Mint makes simplicity and comfort its true strength. If you want to find a downside, with Cinnamon the load times at startup are a bit slower than when we were using XFCE, but nothing to tear his hair. GNU/Linux has never been so beautiful.
To complement the Intel Haswell Linux OpenGL benchmarks that we have been publishing on Phoronix for the past week, up today are some Intel Linux 2D performance benchmarks of Haswell with the Intel Core i7 4770K CPU.

Securing Big Data is complex, and few enterprises are doing it correctly. That was the central message of a recent chat with Brian Christian, CTO of Zettaset, which sells a Hadoop orchestration platform. But Christian offered more than criticism of Big Data security practices.

Firefox browser in Linux uses 2 search engines by default, DuckDuckGo in the address bar and Yahoo Search in the search bar. However, many people still prefer Google over these 2 search engines. One work-around method is to use "!g", "!i" with DuckDuckGo to get the result from Google for normal searches and image searches. But if you still want to change the default search engines of Firefox in Linux Mint 15 to Google search, here is how to do so:
