Hi all, I program at home for fun and a bit of a challenge. I use BSPWM and I3 on arch, as I find them to be the best WM's and os (damn gentoo and your compiling!) for my needs, but none of them are perfect. Since I've been programming for a while and I'm starting to feel like I'm really confident with my skills I'd like to TRY and make my own WM. I know it's a grueling task, and might well take months to do, but I like a challenge and I'm fed up with WM's. Is there any documentation for wayland/x I can use to make a WM, bar, or desktop things similar to bar and conky?
I'm most confident with Java, and I'm getting pretty confident with C++. Are these suitable? If not what languages should I pursue? At this point in time I've realized that after learning one language learning another is mostly just a matter of syntax, mostly.
In conclusion, tl;dr, I hate WMs and even the ones I love suck, I want my own.submitted by antflga

ZDnet: Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer may have hated Linux, but new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella says Microsoft loves Linux.
Hello, for around a year we develop and use set of packages for Debian to make it far more secure;
For now the kernel is working very well.
You can install it from: deb.mempo.org deb.mempo.i2p (geti2p.net first) (soon from Freenet) or build from github via https://wiki.debian.org/SameKernel/#build
Now we would like to ask for someone with a bit of time to join our project, some of the tasks are really simple, others are more ambitious:rafalfreeman
Yandex Browser is powered by Google's WebKit-forked Blink layout engine and based on the Chromium code-base. The Yandex Browser checks web page security against its systems and has other additions on top of the vanilla Chromium code.
I wonder how many other businesses are experiencing the same problem. I'm keen to start a conversation about how others fair when selling FOSS solutions and whether its time to get together again and think again about a re-branding that will have my prospective customers asking, "OK tell us more" rather than "open sounds insecure". To that end I would like to nominate a brand new name that I have seen used in FOSS communities as a suitable candidate... Community Software.
