Reddit: Recertification for the LFCS

7 hours 1 min ago

It has been two years and it's time for me to sit for the LFCS again. I know, I should be taking the LFCE, but I am not. I have a couple of questions. For anyone who has already recertified how does the exam compare to the first time you took it? Obviously, some of the exam objectives have changed, but is the test more or less the same as before difficulty wise? I'm trying to decide how much I need to look over my notes before retaking the exam.

LXer: Learn the basics of the ZSH shell

7 hours 29 min ago
Bash isn't bad. It gets the job done just fine, but have you ever considered what it'd be like if Bash had some extra features to make it more convenient to work with? That's more-or-less what ZSH is. It includes all of the features that you'd expect from Bash, but it also has some really nice additions to make your life easier. Actually, you'll be amazed at how much easier they make working in the command line.

Reddit: Looking for a New Laptop

7 hours 35 min ago

I am looking for a new laptop to replace my tried and true HP Probook 4530s. But I am finding I need more CPU power than my Core i3 provides. I would prefer at least a quad core CPU. I prefer HP but I am open to anything of decent build quality. I'm just looking for a 240GB SSD, Core i7, and 16GB RAM. I can always add the SSD and RAM myself if necessary. I would prefer a discrete GPU if possible such as an Nvidia 1050, or even a lowly 930MX for some games such as Doom 3. I was looking at some HP laptops. I checked out the System76 machines and the gazelle is nice. But I was wondering if anyone else had some suggestions. I usually operate in Xubuntu if anyone is curious as to which OS I will operate in case there should be qestions. Any suggestions are appreciated. I want to keep it ~$1,000

RancherOS: A tiny Linux for Docker lovers

Like the various Linux server and desktop distributions, the container-oriented Linux distributions mix and match various projects and components to construct a complete container infrastructure. These distros generally combine a minimal OS kernel, an orchestration framework, and an ecosystem of container services. RancherOS not only fits the mold, but takes the minimal kernel and the container paradigm to extremes. Read more

Review: System76’s Galago Pro solves “just works” Linux’s Goldilocks problem

The Linux world has long maintained a very specific rite of passage: wiping the default operating system from your laptop and plugging in a USB stick with your favorite distro's live CD. Some of us get a little, dare I say, giddy every time we wipe that other OS away and see that first flash of GRUB. Of course, rites of passage are supposed to be one-time events. Once you've wiped Windows or OS X a time or two, that giddiness vanishes—replaced by a feeling of annoyance, a kind of tax on being a Linux user. Read more

GNOME and Debian: Debian Turning 24, GNOME Turning 20

  • Debian Celebrates Its 24th Birthday
    Yesterday marked GNOME turning 20 while today Debian developers and users have its 24th birthday of the project to celebrate.
  • GNOME desktop environment for Linux and BSD is 20 years old today
    When many people think of Linux, they incorrectly assume it is an operating system. Actually, Linux is merely the kernel which many operating systems leverage. An actual operating system is compromised of many things, including a user interface -- after all, users need to interface with their computer! Most computer users will obviously want a graphical UI nowadays, and for BSD and Linux-based operating systems there are many such desktop environments from which to choose. One of the most popular environments is GNOME. Not only is GNOME a DE, but it has evolved into much more, such as a collection of apps and design rules (Human Interface Guidelines). Today, GNOME is celebrating a very important milestone -- it is an impressive 20 years old!
  • Happy birthday, GNOME!
    The GNOME desktop turns 20 today, and I'm so excited! Twenty years is a major milestone for any open source software project, especially a graphical desktop environment like GNOME that has to appeal to many different users. The 20th anniversary is definitely something to celebrate!
  • Linux desktop GUI GNOME celebrates its 20th birthday
    By 1997, there had long been graphical Unix and Linux graphical user interface (GUI) desktops, but none of them had gathered much support. KDE, which was destined to become a major desktop, had started in 1996, but it was still facing opposition for its use of the Qt license. The GNOME Project, founded by Miguel de Icaza and Federico Mena Quintero on August 15, 1997, was created to build a GUI without the use of any non-General Public License (GPL) software. Thus, a struggle began between the two Linux desktops, which continues to this day.
