      • DedoimedoMoving away from Windows - the software checklist

        There you go. A very early, rudimentary plan for what I have in mind. Now, if I look at my computer usage over the past 10-15 years, it has changed quite a bit. Less Windows and significant fewer Windows-based software, more Linux and more serious Linux cases. I have, in a way, started this migration a long time ago, only now I've realized that it needs to be finished.

        I am not happy that this is what I must do. But hey. Using Windows has become onerous. Even in Windows 10 Pro, I have to deal with low-IQ nonsense that simply has no place in a professional system I've paid for. Not in the mood to be the padding for the bonus for some marketing person somewhere. Treat me with respect, and we will have common ground. I've spend thousands of dollars on Microsoft products over the years, including several Windows Phones and whatnot. Not anymore. No settings headerbar rewards, no Edge begging to be default browser, no advertising ID, no cloud this or that, none of that nonsense.

        Corel Corporation is a Canadian software company specializing in graphics processing. They are best known for developing CorelDRAW, a vector graphics editor. They are also notable for purchasing and developing AfterShot Pro, PaintShop Pro, Painter, Video Studio, MindManager, and WordPerfect.

        Corel has dabbled with Linux over the years. For example they produced Corel Linux, a Debian-based distribution which bundled Corel WordPerfect Office for Linux. While Corel effectively abandoned its Linux business in 2001 they are not completely Linux-phobic. For example, AfterShot Pro has an up to date Linux version albeit its proprietary software.

      • Working with the ip Command in Linux with Examples

        When working in a Linux terminal, we often use various commands. We typically use the ifconfig command to perform network configuration.

        However, another command, ip, can be used for network configuration, which is considered a replacement for the ifconfig command. It has much more capabilities than the ifconfig command.

        Using the ip command, we can perform various tasks, such as changing the network configuration by modifying its interface and assigning or checking the IP address on a network interface.

        We can also enable or disable a network interface. This is not an exhaustive list but some of the activities we can perform with the ip command.

      • Bash Script: Flags usage with arguments examples

        If you have any experience on the Linux command line, then you should have run into command flags, which help us modify the behavior of a command that we are executing.

        For example, if we execute the ls -l command, the -l part of the command is a flag that we are passing as an argument to ls. This same functionality can be used in a Bash script, allowing us to pass some input to the script through flags when we are executing the script.

        Modifying a Bash script’s behavior via runtime options, just like we normally do with command line programs, can be very useful. The Bash shell provides the getopts builtin command, a standard way to achieve this. In this tutorial, you will see how to use flags as arguments when executing a Bash script, through use of the getopts builtin.

          Cyber attacks present an imminent threat to our digital assets. And they come in a variety of ways, including computer viruses, Denial-of-service (DoS), hacking, ransomware, memcached. In February 2022, White House deputy national security adviser for cyber and emerging technology Anne Neuberger claimed that the Russian hackers conducted a DDoS attack on the Ukrainian banks and Ministry of Defense before their military attacks. To defend against those threats, people relentlessly develop new Cyber Security technologies, such as AI & Deep Learning that add additional layers of authentication, Behavioral Analytics that helps determine patterns of cyber threats, Embedded Hardware Authentication like Intel’s Sixth-generation vPro Chips, and Zero-Trust Models that assume a network is already compromised. For all cyber security technologies, encryption is considered an essential technology to protect sensitive data. Encryption is a technology that attempts to make the information unreadable by anyone other than the intended recipients. People normally grant their audience access to encrypted data via passwords or decryption keys. On the Internet, encryption technologies include Encryption in transit, such as Virtual Private Network (VPN); and Encryption at rest, such as Encrypted Storage; and Encryption in use, such as Confidential Computing.

Brave is one of the newest ones that come with all sorts of advanced technology. Eventually, it started competing with Google Chrome already. People who are updated about the technology news are so being confused about which one to try. Indeed, many of you already have asked about the fact between Brave vs. Chrome.

If you are confused about which browser to try, we suggest you check out the facts properly. But first, I would like to give you a proper introduction to Brave and Chrome browser.

        • The right to install Free Software +++ 60 books to libraries +++ Berlin workshop

          Installing and uninstalling software as we wish on any device is a right that comes with an extra benefit: we can fix our devices and keep using them longer, avoiding the environmental impact of a new device. So what is keeping us from fixing existing devices by installing Free Software? Unfortunately, legal and technical barriers are often intentionally imposed on users so that they cannot change the operating system on their devices. 2022 offers a unique opportunity to improve the situation in Europe. The EU is about to redraft its ecodesign criteria of products with the Sustainable Products Initiative, the Circular Electronics Initiative, the Right to Repair, and other directives.

          This is our chance to claim the right to install any operating system on any device. The FSFE started to advise the European Commission as early as possible on this. But a positive outcome is far from certain; counter-lobbying is there. If the role of software freedom is not considered as essential to the longevity and re-usability of our devices, the throw-away culture will continue. We will advocate for the necessary changes in the upcoming legislation. Manufacturers must not be allowed to create artificial restrictions preventing users from installing Free Software operating systems.

          Help us push for the universal right to install Free Software. Become a supporter.

        Russia's blocking of Facebook is a symptom of its broader effort to cut itself off from sources of information that could imperil its internationally condemned invasion of Ukraine, experts say.

        The often-criticized social network is part of a web of information sources that can challenge the Kremlin's preferred perspective that its assault on Ukraine is righteous and necessary.

        Blocking of Facebook and restricting of Twitter on Friday came the same day Moscow backed the imposition of jail terms on media publishing "false information" about the military.

        Russia's motivation "is to suppress political challenges at a very fraught moment for (Vladimir) Putin, and the regime, when it comes to those asking very tough questions about why Russia is continuing to prosecute this war," said Steven Feldstein, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

      • NBCSometimes maligned, Telegram becomes essential during Ukraine invasion

        As Russian forces shelled cities across Ukraine on Thursday, unidentified hackers took control of the website for the local government in the western province of Volyn, putting up a fake notice that government officials there had agreed to surrender.

        The Security Service of Ukraine, or SBU, had prepared for such a scenario. It had been warning for days on social media, especially on Telegram, its most-followed social media channel, that Russia would try such a tactic. It quickly alerted its nearly 800,000 followers that the surrender claim was a fake, and that Volyn was still in Ukrainian hands.

        But SBU’s Telegram channel doesn’t just counter Russian propaganda. Taking advantage of the fact that Telegram, unlike Facebook and Twitter, is almost entirely unmoderated, it publishes plenty of its own. Its feed is full of videos of despondent, apologetic and sometimes bloodied Russians who are allegedly prisoners of war, which some experts have argued violates the Geneva Conventions.
