OPEN SOURCE has had an enormous impact on the software industry. Software development organizations have widely adopted open source software (OSS) in a variety of ways.1 Besides adopting OSS products, as either productivity tools or off-the-shelf components, numerous organizations have adopted open source practices to develop their software. This is called inner source because the software is sourced internally, although different terms have been used, such as “progressive open source” and “corporate open source.”2 Unlike with traditional approaches, developers of an inner-source project don’t belong to a single team or department. Anybody in the organization can be a contributing member of this community, as either a user or contributor. Eric Raymond compared traditional software development approaches to building cathedrals, while calling open-source-style development a “bazaar.” 3 So, you can view inner source as a bazaar within a corporate cathedral. 4
Everyone loves hearing about pentesting and ethical hacking distros these days, and it looks like it is even becoming a trend among aspiring security professionals.

Reddit: First Linux Mint, then Linkedin and now TeamViewer. Seems like we are on a hacking spree right now!
Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but if you were to guess how many more websites are going to be hacked by the end of 2016, then what will your answer be? I bet it will be greater than zero.
Time for introspection: The mega-thread on /r/teamviewer says that even linux users were hacked and the worse thing is that TV doesn't leave a log on linux installations after an uninstall, so its difficult to find out what happened now.
The larger matter, however, is that of security. The biggest question presently looming over my mind is how the heck one gets hacked if 2FA is enabled? I'm yet to find answer to that question.submitted by /u/rms_returns

When I was being introduced to Linux in my younger years, I was introduced to a game called Slune
I wanted to reinstall the game yesterday to see how nieve I was!, however it did not work on my Fedora or Ubuntu machines. I tried adding from the DuckCorp repository and building the package.
Does anyone have any advice for me?
Any help will be much appreciated!submitted by /u/cameronpc
So about two weeks ago I picked up an old el cheapo netbook for shits. It's been performing very well with Arch and LXQt, but it really can't handle chromium, opera, firefox, etc. I really like the polish that goes into these browsers, but it's become apparent that I need something lighter. Any suggestions?submitted by /u/festiveoctopod
