I became interested in Linux a few years ago, when I realized how easy it was to use a different OS that required less resources and the best of all, was available for free. I downloaded a CentOS image and created my very first machine. Staring at the terminal, I thought, “Now what?”. It was hard at the beginning, coming from a stylish GUI interface and then facing a terminal. I started to read lot of Linux books, followed step-by-step tutorials, and of course not giving up. Within a month, I created multiple Linux servers like Apache server, NFS, Mail and Proxy server, started to participate in several local Linux conferences, and made good connections which helped me to understand the benefits of using Linux for everything.

In the previous three posts about this ASUS notebook, I have configured Windows 10 Home, installed openSUSE Tumbleweed, Manjaro and Debian GNU/Linux, and installed Fedora, Linux Mint and Ubuntu.
This time I am going to install the last two Linux distributions I am interested in: KaOS and openSUSE Leap. So far my experience with this inexpensive laptop has been very good. I hope that it continues that way.
This PREALPHA4 release is ready for testing new feature and debugging of GhostBSD 11.0, MATE and XFCE are available with i386 and amd64 architectures.
Reddit: Using "apt-mark showauto | xargs apt-get install" will still upgrade packages? xpost /r/debian
I marked the packages which could be removed withapt-mark showauto | xargs apt-get install
know I am wondering if these packages will still be upgrade (when there is an upgrade available) withsudo apt-get upgrade
or are these packages now marked as "on hold and don't upgrade"?
Thank you.submitted by /u/nullcloak
I was just wondering what the difference between the ";" command and "&" command is. They both allow me to execute multiple operations on one line in the terminal but when using the & command a weird number pops up sometimes.
Thanks in advance for any advice!submitted by /u/MafiaNation

The future of IoT will be connected by tiny, resource-constrained edge devices, says Senior Software Engineer at the Intel Open Source Technology Center. And, the IoTivity-Constrained project is a small-footprint implementation of the Open Connectivity Foundation’s (OCF) standards that’s designed to run on just such devices.
