Hey Linux guys! I've been using Linux for quite some time on my dedicated machine. I currently use Putty to connect to my machine through SSH and I also use screen to have multiple terminal instances. The issue though is in wondering if there is a way to actually have multiple terminals existing within one screen because currently I host a variety of game servers and a lot of them when running completely take over the terminal and prevent any kind of input that does pertain to their server. Which means I am unable to detach from the screen terminal and simply only apply to exist out of purry which unfortunately make it a pain sometimes to move between terminals and such. I am hoping there's an easier setup someone,can provide on here. I was using am actual desktop for a while but I prefer to just do twrminal based input and display due to it being cleaner for what I am doing.
Any advice is much appreciated from you guys! Thanks!submitted by /u/PancakePuncher
So I had win8.1 installed on my PC. I installed mint 18 using the auto partition spit at setup and did about 500GB each . However, after finishing install Mint 18 ran, but no Windows os seemed to show anymore in boot start up list . It appears it got corrupted because when I tried to access the files from Windows partition from Linux I received error regarding that particular partition.
I mainly want to use Windows for a select few games that won't run on wine / play w/ Linux. Is there a way to get Windows dual boot with Linux now that I only have mint installed? Also, I had to downgrade to mint 17.3 because of driver issues on 18.submitted by /u/jperk8
Open source reshaping vendor business models – Wikibon
A new trend among enterprises to make open source software a priority in their criteria for new infrastructure and application use will impact venture capital investments, startups, established IT vendors and cloud providers, writes Wikibon Lead Cloud Analyst Brian Gracely in “Open Source Software: Reshaping Vendor Business Models” on Wikibon.com. In this second part of Gracely’s examination of the impacts of open source, he looks at all four of these aspects of the vendor ecosystem.
Open source companies, with the exception of Red Hat Inc., have struggled to achieve profitability, making venture capitalists less willing to invest in them. Open source-centric startups that already have achieved their initial funding now must find a way to monetize the business as they approach new funding rounds. An increasing number of established IT providers are becoming heavily involved in open source, while their proprietary solutions face increasing pricing pressure from open source competition.
Broadband Forum backs open source SDN
There has been a stand-off brewing between the Open Networking Lab (ON.Lab) and OpenDaylight – two open source software defined networking (SDN) platforms pushing for network transformation at a massive scale – attracting membership signatures of operators hungry for next generation broadband services.
Adding to its growing list of supporters, ON.Lab has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Broadband Forum to extend its collaborative work to the Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (CORD) Project community – an open source reference implementation combining SDN and NFV to bring datacenter economics and cloud agility to the Telco Central Office.
Open Source OVN to Offer Solid Virtual Networking For OpenStack
Open Virtual Networking (OVN) is a new open source project that brings virtual networking to the Open vSwitch user community and aims to develop a single, standard, vendor-neutral protocol for the virtualization of network switching functions. In their upcoming talk at LinuxCon North America in Toronto this month, Kyle Mestery of IBM and Justin Pettit of VMware will cover the current status of the OVN project, including the first software release planned for this fall. Here, Mestery and Pettit discuss the project and its goals and give us a preview of their talk, “OVN: Scalable Virtual Networking for Open vSwitch."

Personally, I use Ubuntu-MATE:
- Highly configurable.
- Fully-featured desktop with all bells and whistles.
- Better performance.
- Rock stable and solid, almost never crashes.
- Lacks the cool animations present in Unity/KDE.
USP: An Ubuntu Desktop that provides the neat balance between good-looks and performance. Not as resource-hungry as more "powerful" ones like Unity/KDE/GNOME-3, yet more fully-featured than LXDE and XFCE.submitted by /u/prahladyeri
