    • IT ProWindows vs. Linux vs. Mac: the channel comparison | IT PRO

      With Linux being open source software, its code can be tweaked and modified to meet specific user requirements - something which is not possible with the closed source Windows and macOS systems. While that can mean support is not as easily accessible, it's this flexibility that has helped make Linux a popular choice with the developer community and certain sections of the enterprise user base.

        The Linux Foundation is funded (and controlled) by Microsoft and Facebook

        As of 2018, the cost of a “Platinum Membership” to the Linux Foundation cost $500,000 USD (half a million) per year. A system that propelled The Linux Foundation revenue up to $177 Million dollars in 2021.

        Platinum Members include Microsoft, Oracle, and Facebook (now Meta).

        The Board of Directors of The Linux Foundation is made up of representatives from Facebook (Meta), Microsoft, and Amazon (who employs the Chair).

        Think you’re being rebellious — and staying clear of Big Tech — by using Linux? Think again.

        Who controls and funds the foundation which controls Linux?

        Microsoft, Facebook, and Amazon.

      • DedoimedoMoving from Windows to Linux - Disk management

        Today, I'd like to break away from my recent template of Windows-to-Linux tutorials, which have focused on showing you how to install, configure and use a variety of programs, typically designed or intended only for Windows, using frameworks like WINE. What we shall discuss today is the juicy topic of disk and drive management.

        Beyond applications, there's data to reckon with. And data is critical to everything. Things become extra complicated when one considers the cardinal differences between Windows and Linux. The former uses NTFS, and data is organized in drives (C:, D:, etc). Linux stores everything under one filesystem tree (root, /), and uses different filesystem formats (like ext4), although it can handle NTFS. So then, what gives if you're trying to move your stuff over? This tutorial is a neat suggestion for those looking for order, simplicity and clarity.

      • LinuxiacThe Future of the NTFS Linux Driver as Part of the Kernel Is in Question

        After Paragon’s NTFS3 driver was accepted to become part of the Linux kernel last year, it has not received a single line of code maintenance.

        Let’s start with a brief background of events. The NTFS support in the Linux kernel has always been an important part. After all, a vast number of Linux users rely on it to be able to use the Windows file systems fully under Linux.

        Unfortunately, the existing Linux NTFS driver, which implementation dated back to 2001, was unmaintained in the kernel and lacked proper write support and other features.

      • SocketCAN x Kubernetes

        The SocketCAN package is an implementation of CAN protocols for Linux. Generally speaking, CAN is a networking technology that has widespread use in automation, embedded devices, and automotive fields. While there have been other CAN implementations for Linux, SocketCAN uses the Berkeley socket API, the Linux network stack, and implements the CAN device drivers as network interfaces, often making it the first choice for a CAN implementation.

        Recently, we worked on a project where we used Kubernetes to control and automate deployments and updates. One component of our workflow required the availability of a CAN interface inside the Kubernetes Pod; to our surprise, such support didn't exist. Fast forward to today, and SocketCAN support is now available in the form of a Kubernetes SocketCAN device plugin!

        What hardware to use for a syslog-ng server? It is a frequent question with no definite answer. It depends on many factors: the number and type of sources, the number of logs, the way logs are processed, and so on. My experience is that for the majority users even a Raspberry Pi would be enough. But of course, not for everyone.

        A shell script is a Linux-based script in which commands are written. When a user executes the script, all the commands that are in the script are executed one after another. Think of it like this: You have a task to do, for which you need to write a certain number of commands, and it is difficult to write and execute these commands one by one.

      • VituxHow to Flush the DNS Cache on Ubuntu – VITUX

        The DNS or the Domain Name Server can be characterized as one of the most essential parts of your link to the internet. The DNS translates the domain names to and from the IP addresses so that we don’t need to remember or keep a list of all the IP addresses of the websites we ever want to access. Our systems also maintain a list of DNS records so that we can access our frequently visited websites faster through a quick resolution of IP addresses. This cache on our system needs to be flushed from time to time. This is required because websites may change their addresses time and again, so it is a good idea to avoid IP conflict by clearing the cache. Flushing the cache is also a good way to clear unnecessary data residing on our systems.

      • ​How to Upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04

        Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish) was released on April 21, 2022, and it will be supported for five years. It comes with many new packages and major software upgrades, including the latest versions of OpenSSL, GCC, Python, Ruby, and PHP. This release is based on the Linux 5.15 LTS kernel and adds support for new hardware and filesystems.

        The desktop edition comes with kernel v5.17, GNOME 42, and a new screenshot and screen recording tool. This tutorial explains how to upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS from Ubuntu 20.04 or Ubuntu 21.10.

      • ID RootHow To Install VirtualBox on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS - idroot

        In this tutorial, we will show you how to install VirtualBox on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, VirtualBox is a free and open-source virtualization tool for desktops and servers. It is an alternative to VMware workstation player and other virtualization software out there. VirtualBox supports the guest virtual machines running Windows, Linux, BSD, much more operating systems.

        This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Oracle’s VirtualBox on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.

        Linux offers various image manipulation tools to help you edit images. Some of the popular ones include GIMP, Pinta, and Krita. However, while these tools offer tonnes of features and serve the needs of most users, many of them have a steep learning curve, and the added complexity in features makes them overkill for basic image editing and annotation needs.

        For such use-cases, you rather need an annotation tool, like Annotator, which simplifies image manipulation and lets you annotate images with just a few clicks.

        Follow along as we walk you through the steps to install and use Annotator on Linux.

        Each Linux distribution provides a particular feature set suitable for a specific target audience. With so many options to choose from, you may find it hard to select the right one.

        Users from other operating systems, such as Windows and macOS, often find it challenging to switch to Linux for various reasons, and that's where Zorin OS, an Ubuntu-based Linux distro, arrives on the scene.

        This distro is an excellent choice if you are new to Linux. Its interface and features are similar to other popular OSes and help you quickly shift to Linux. Here are some reasons why you should install Zorin OS as your next (or first) Linux distro.

        • Beta NewsLinux Lite 6.0 RC1 is here with Google Chrome as new default web browser

          Now that Ubuntu 22.04 has been released, we will start to see updates to all the Linux distributions that are based on Canonical's operating system. For instance, the first release candidate of Linux Lite 6.0, which is based on Ubuntu 22.04, is now available. If you aren't familiar, Linux Lite is very popular with those that are switching to Linux from Microsoft Windows.

          Linux Lite 6.0 RC1 is notable for ditching Mozilla Firefox as the default web browser, and switching to Google Chrome 100 instead. The operating system currently uses Linux kernel 5.15.0-25 and the desktop environment Xfce 4.16.3. It comes with some excellent software pre-installed, such as GIMP 2.10.30, Thunderbird 91.7.0, VLC 3.0.16, and LibreOffice

        • TechRepublicAlmaLinux 9 beta is now available and introduces several improvements

          AlmaLinux is a Linux distribution that is 1:1 binary compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. That means it’s perfectly at home as an enterprise server operating system capable of handling anything you can throw at it. This server-centric operating system was first released in 2021 as a drop-in replacement for CentOS and would serve as an alternative to RHEL.


          With RHEL 9 releasing in May, it should come as no surprise that AlmaLinux 9 will follow in its footsteps. Although there is no official release date for the next iteration of AlmaLinux, what we do know is that the beta has finally arrived and although it’s not a major departure from what was offered in AlmaLinux 8, there’s certainly enough to garner a bit of excitement about this next release.

        • Red Hat OfficialCompliance as Code: Extending compliance automation for process improvement

          Supply chain disruptions, intellectual property theft and the rising cost of data breaches are among the top reasons for a drastic increase in global focus on cybersecurity compliance.

          Regulated industries face more stringent requirements, and some organizations now require third-party assessments instead of using internal teams to verify compliance with cybersecurity frameworks. Non-regulated industries can also leverage the same standards in order to reduce their security risk. Compliance automation is increasingly important to manage the growing burden that security teams face.

            Probably the most important aspect of scripting is using logic operators to control the flow of the script. Sometimes a script needs to do more than run each command in order from the beginning to the end of the script.

            There are many times when you need to control the flow of a script to allow different things to happen based on the parameters that you specify. For example, you may need to verify that a file or folder exists before you copy certain files into the folder.

            We have basically four logic features that we need to cover in this article. There are more logic features we will cover later, but these features will aid you in script flow.

        The Black-empowerment hit-maker James Brown mostly sang about movement – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, political, and even economic. The Godfather of Soul recalls being dehydrated and fatigued on tour, but he jolted back to life when he saw the audience in a Fort Lauderdale club reflecting his exhaustion. He yelled “Get Up Offa That Thang, and dance ‘til you feel better… SING!” And that was the birth of his 1974 smash-hit. The cure for collective exhaustion was movement. As consumers, we are exhausted with the harms of some of the largest digital platforms. We all want the choice to start moving. But, movement away from the largest digital platforms isn’t easy. Nevertheless, we must push ourselves and our communities to “Get Up Offa Them Thangs” with interoperability.

        A growing class of Afro-descendant tech entrepreneurs have heard and experienced the downsides of the largest digital platforms and have decided to create their own platforms. The pre-Facebook social media network Black Planet, as well as The Cookout, Bean, RAMÅšE, and Black Twitter, all want to compete with Facebook to create safer and more inclusive spaces for Black communities. Fanbase and MelaninPeople are seeking to compete with YouTube for Black content creators who often get uncredited and underpaid for viral content. TruSo and Zimela are vying to compete with Microsoft-owned LinkedIn to cultivate a professional social network. Black-owned wholesale retailers like are seeking to offer more diverse and culturally inclusive products directly from sellers of color around the world. Platforms that carefully curate Black-owned businesses and Black-inspired goods, services, and experiences like Support Black Owned, Official Black Wall Street, Black Owned Association, Black Owned Brooklyn, and EatOkra are trying to offer alternatives to Google’s ginormous search engine and Amazon’s mammoth marketplace of everything.

    • TediumBubble Hockey History: For the Hockey Lovers in Your Life

      The nature of invention and innovation has been on my mind the past few weeks. Specifically, why we attribute some innovations to particular individuals but not others. Henry Ford didn’t invent the assembly line but it’s credited as one of the innovations that made his automobile company one of the most profitable. A.C. Gilbert didn’t really invent the Erector Set but its success and his charisma helped him become one of the largest toy manufacturers in the world. Plenty of business tycoons find success with products they didn’t invent, or even significantly innovate in a meaningful way. Elon Musk bought his way into Tesla Motors, he wasn’t its founder and, of course, the electric car was invented some 80 years before his birth. But perhaps the simplest way to understand why certain business leaders get credit over others is to look at an arcade game popular in colder climates or any place where hockey fans congregate. Today’s Tedium is looking at bubble hockey and the lawyer-turned-game-maker that became its chief champion—and why it might matter to American patent law in coming years.

      But English is the world’s most widely spoken L2; four times more people know it than the second most common L2, the MSA variety of Arabic. Though that’s just a written language, and we were talking about spoken L2. Hindi in that case, also about a quarter of English.

You're probably thinking without the fatty JS it would be Nitter which is indeed great; except that wasn't it because it was way simpler than Nitter.

        These days when you stumble upon a humble Web 1.0 or even 2.0 site that's still up and runnning chances are it's a no-nonsense, no-BS website that does exactly what it says on the tin. You can't say the same of all the sites hawking automation tools for this or that or meant to pump up search results.

        • Public Domain Review“A Sword was Seen in the Sky”: *A True and Wonderful Narrative* (1763) – The Public Domain Review

          So opens the first of two accounts detailing unusual phenomena seen in the skies over Riga and Kirschberg (near Gdansk) in 1763. Published by Mannheim-born Philadelphia printer Anton Armbruster the following year, this short pamphlet was a translation of a German broadside titled Zwei wahrhafte von gantz besondrn Himmels–Zeichen. Why this translation for Philadelphia? Such strange news from Prussia would have likely appealed to the city's many German immigrants, but there was maybe more to Armbruster’s publication. Despite occurring across the other side of the world, such ominous signs from a wrathful God unhappy with a wayward populace, could speak to the citizens of the much-embattled Pennsylvania Province.

          The year of 1764 was a troubled time for Philadelphia. After Armbruster’s former business partner Benjamin Franklin had, in early February, turned back the Paxton Boys vigilante mob on their way to murder Susquehannock Indians, a pamphlet war broke out in the City of Brotherly Love. Nearly a quarter of the seventy-plus pamphlets either excoriating or apologizing for the Paxton gang’s violence were printed on the press owned by Benjamin Franklin and operated by Armbruster. Did the latter then take a break from the ongoing provincial war of words to issue a transcendental warning to Philadelphians?
