Reddit: Any ideas for simple, quick commands to mess with a fellow classmates Linux VM? OpenSuse. Fun class project.
Basically what the title says. I plan on removing directories/files or merging them, renaming files, deleting file contents, and changing user privileges to start. Any other fun ideas I can try? Nothing too long, it's a "live response" hack so I cant spend a long time trying to accomplish one thing, I just need to cause chaos and make it difficult for them to fix. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks!
Firewalls are disabled and SSH is enabled on the machine. The opponents have to define their firewalls via iptables and monitor and log any changes to the system, then fix them.submitted by /u/LazlowS
ZTE's first Android Wear watch is also one of the cheapest
Android Wear 2.0's release has been delayed multiple times, and aside from a few watches that have just hit the market, there aren't many affordable ways to get Google's latest wearable OS right now. The good news is, a new option arrives in about two weeks via ZTE, which is making its first-ever Android Wear watch. It's called the Quartz, and it will be available on April 21 via T-Mobile for just $200. You can also get it online starting April 14th.
Best Android phones you can buy [April 2017]
Looking for a new smartphone? There are dozens upon dozens of great options on the market today, but finding the best of the best can be a bit difficult. We’ve seen some great launches through the year and more should be coming soon too, so let’s take a look at the best Android smartphones you can buy as of April 2017.
The 5 most annoying Android features
I’ve been an iPhone user since 2011. Back then, it was never really a question whether I’d choose iOS or Android as a smartphone platform. My friends had iPhones, my coworkers had iPhones—anyone who was anyone, really, had an iPhone.
But that was more than half a decade ago. Nowadays, Android is really on equal footing with iOS (and in fact, the two borrow, steal, and share “new” features so often you’d think they were teenage sisters sharing the same wardrobe). And after so many years on iOS, I felt the time was right to give Android a try full time. As a gadget writer and reviewer, I’ve sampled dozens of iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices over the years, but I’d never truly given a non-iOS device a long-term trial. Until now.
5 reasons why I’m glad I switched from iOS to Android
My first smartphone was an iPhone 4, purchased shortly after its debut in 2011. Since then, I’ve used and reviewed dozens of smartphones, both Android and iOS (and Windows Phone, too). While I dabbled for days or weeks at a time on a new phone, though, I never fully committed to a non-iOS operating system long term until recently. Since December, I’ve been using a Huawei Nexus 6P as my main device, running the latest version of Android (currently Android 7.1.2, Nougat).

It's difficult to achieve critical mass for an open source project—even the largest enterprise IT vendors have challenges. It requires product management skills when there's no actual product. In addition to traditional product management expertise, open source projects must have an active community.
I'm a firm believer that enterprise IT shops will soon find themselves in a position where open source becomes a necessity for delivering IT infrastructure. Highly publicized companies like Capital One, Comcast, and Walmart are all increasingly embracing open source.
ServerWatch: Microsoft announced today that it is acquiring open-source software development shop Deis from Engine Yard. Financial terms of the deal have not been publicly disclosed.
Last week when posting an eight-way BSD/Linux OS comparison there were a few premium members who requested seeing Solus results side-by-side. For those interested, here are some fresh benchmarks of this promising Linux distribution.
Looking for a light-weight, but capable operating system? It doesn’t get much lighter than Tiny Core Linux.
The disc image for the most basic version of this operating system is just 16MB, and it boots on most computers in a matter of seconds. But once it’s up and running, you can install all sorts of desktop applications including the Firefox web browser, GIMP image editor, of LibreOffice suite of office applications.
I'm not sure if this is the right location but I am in desperate need of help. I am an electrical engineering student working on my senior design project which is a UAV that is Linux based using a Jetson TX1. Anyways, I am trying to test 2 sensors, a Lidar Lite v3, and a dfrobot Microwave Sensor. I need to grab useful data from these sensors but I do not know how to do so on Ubuntu as I've never used it before. I installed i2c-tools to detect that the sensor is there but I am having trouble understanding how to run a script to collect data. I mostly need the microwave sensor info as it has much less documentation. Any help is appreciated.submitted by /u/GeeRodreezy
