With the start of a new month brings our monthly recap and it also brings Valve's updated Steam hardware/software survey numbers.
For June 2014, the overall Linux market-share using this randomly-sampled Steam survey was at 1.20%, an increase over May's 1.13%. Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit continued gaining ground as did Linux Mint 17 Qiana. The 32-bit Linux distributions continue to be (fortunately) declining.

It’s an interesting day for the KDE community. At one hand they announced the death of two projects – Vivaldi tablet and Improv board, on the other hand Krita (a KDE software) has reached its goal of raising Euro 15,000 on Kickstrater. The project can now hire the developer, designer they need to further improve the sketching and painting software. The campaign is not over yet and there are eight more days left so the project will continue to get more money.
So I got down to thinking, about how Android and Ubuntu operate on a similar kernel. I also am aware that it is possible to run two desktop environments on the same kernel (possibly using a chroot environment?) My question is: Could it be (theoretically) possible to run Android(x86) on the same Linux as Ubuntu, forcing Android to use Ubuntu's libraries instead of its own? Yeah I know about emulators and whatnot, but actually switch between X server and Android display?submitted by OrShUnderscore

Hey /r/linux ,
I need help with starting from scratch. By scratch, I really mean from scratch.
I'm going to high school in september and I think that my current knowledge of computers is absolutely horrible ( 3 years of IT a really shitty IT class with a bad teacher ). While I do understand some basics, I feel that almost everything I was taught isn't correct. I need a few good books to explain computers to me, from turning it on to hard stuff like advanced linux stuff.
Help is appreciated!submitted by dinbored
