TuxMachines: DHI Group plans to sell off Slashdot and Sourceforge

Tuesday 28th of July 2015 07:14:05 PM

More recently, SourceForge has been accused of a whole lot of bad behavior with injecting malware into some of the open source projects it hosts. Although SourceForge representatives explained that they only intended to modify "abandoned" projects and publicly denied any wrongdoing, it was difficult to square that statement with its apparent tampering with the download packages of well-known and clearly-not-abandoned projects like image editor GIMP and network scanning tool nmap.

Reddit: Linux Boot Times FTW!!

Tuesday 28th of July 2015 01:32:42 AM

I was just watching the latest Linus Tech Tips Rig video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moCmcPDkDac) in which Linus puts an Intel 750 PCI SSD in his box. However I noticed that at 12:25 he is so happy that his boot time was reduced from 2 minutes to around 45 seconds. This surprised me as my linux box boots in ~10 seconds (including loading fglrx) and its running on a single, slighly old and slow, ssd, with a hard drive for /home. But, I guess that is the magic of linux. And as linux gets more and more compatibility it is easier to just use it and not use my macbook pro or windows partition.
