Manjaro is a Linux distribution based on well-tested snapshots of the Arch Linux repositories and 100% compatible with Arch. A new version based on the upcoming Xfce 4.12 has been released in anticipation of the actual launch.
The list of software known to use the same HTTPS-breaking technology recently found preinstalled on Lenovo laptops has risen dramatically with the discovery of at least 12 new titles, including one that's categorized as a malicious trojan by a major antivirus provider...
... Web searches for many of these titles uncover forum posts in which computer users complain that some of these applications are hard to remove once they're installed. Richard noted that he was unable to find documentation from any of the publishers explaining what effect Komodia software had on end-user PCs such as its ability to sniff passwords and other sensitive data from encrypted Web sessions.
This project provides brief instructions on how to build a Raspberry Pi-based cable shutter release and deploy a simple web app that can be used to control it.
After letting users decide the version numbering of the Linux kernel software, as Softpedia reported two weeks ago based on the Linus Torvalds’ Google+ poll for Linux kernel 3.20/4.0. Apparently, users decided that it was time for a change, so we’re happy to announce the immediate availability for testing of the first RC (Release Candidate) version of the forthcoming Linux 4.0 kernel.
There are many reasons why people use Bodhi Linux. Some use it because they really like the Enlightenment desktop, and Bodhi has pioneered the integration of Enlightenment to create a distro that is both beautiful, elegant and functional. Others use it because they want an operating system that stays out of their way. Again, although Enlightenment offers plenty of whistles and bells for those who need or want them, it can also be configured to be highly minimalist and use a very small amount of system resources.
Owners of Lenovo computers are, therefore, not the only folks at risk of man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks. So exchanging your Lenovo computer for another Windows brand won’t do you much good.
A real solution, a final solution, is one that does not involve the parties that caused the problem in the first place. And that solution is this:

After a few hours of work alongside an electrical engineering buddy this week, my home garden drip system became powered by a Raspberry Pi. I can control the entire thing locally from my iPhone and, to be frank, it’s pretty flippin’ cool.
For some background, I’m a very lazy gardener. When my wife and I bought our house in 2012, our horticultural mission was Hippocratic (do no harm). In other words, we wanted—at the very least—to not kill the plants we inherited from the previous owners.
In part 2 of this series, we look at some new browser sandboxing developments in Firejail security sandbox. Since the first article was published, many new features have been added. Unlike other sandboxes, the main focus of Firejail project is GUI application sandboxing, with web browsers being, at least for the immediate future, the main target.
That, of course, was followed by a series of sessions that were, for the most part, once again standing-room-only, like Alison Chaiken’s systemd talk, where I understand no gunfire was exchanged. One track, SCALE: The Next Generation, is one where teens organize their own FOSS track and that did not disappoint, from wunderkind Justin King and his 65-year-old computer to Keila Banks’ talk on starting a FOSS-based business to Levente Kurusa talking about the Linux desktop and when it will be “our year.”
Ubuntu is the perfect Linux for a Newbie to start off with. They have a very good online community to help with any questions. Why, just ask anything about Ubuntu in Google and you will get a response that will help you correct your problem. I have long been a fan of Ubuntu, and used it extensively in my early years of Linux.
LinkSprite launched a gig-Ethernet version of its PCDuino3 SBC, featuring the same dual-core Allwinner A20 SoC, plus SATA, WiFi, and Arduino compatible I/O.
Ben Hutchings, the maintainer of the Linux 3.2 kernel branch, had the pleasure of announcing the immediate availability for download and upgrade of a new maintenance release for Linux kernel 3.2, version 3.2.67, urging users to update to it as soon as possible. Linux 3.2.67 kernel is a long-term supported version mostly used on very stable environments or embedded systems.
Robolinux is proud and excited to announce our newly released 'X-Treme Plasma Speed' Robolinux KDE version 7.8.1. A mind-numbing amount of time and effort went into optimizing the KDE core and boot-up speed in order to make it run faster and use less RAM so that Linux beginners and advanced users would be very pleased. We believe that Robolinux KDE 7.8.1 is the fastest and most customizable KDE operating system available today.
Lenovo is all over the media recently, and not for a good reason. The revelation that it corrupted its computers with the vile Superfish adware has shocked many people in the computing world. It’s almost impossible to believe that a company could be so incredibly stupid and so unbelievably uncaring about the security of its customers.
Thanks to the ever more awesome SteamDB, we have a possible list of games Valve will demo on Steam Machines at GDC, and the list is interesting.
