Need HELP - lost Linux XP activation code

Filed under
PCLinuxOS

Can anyone tell me what to do? I'm trying to install Linux XP 2006 on my laptop but I've lost the activation code. Is there anyway that I can find it on the disk? Is there something else I can do to get it?

Please help me if you can. I want to thank you for taking the time to read this and for any help that you can give to me.

re: Linux XP activation code

If you had read my review you would have read that I reviewed a time limited version. I never had an activation code. Even if I did, it would be illegal and unethical to share it.

If you don't want to pay for XP, then try one of the 100's of distros that don't cost anything. If you like XP, I recommend FreeSpire. Similar look and feel while having better hardware support, documentation, and an active user community.

Thank you.

Re: Linux XP activation code

I already have the Linux XP that I bought - but have lost the activation code. I was not asking for anyone to share there code with me. I was wondering if it might be hidden on the disk somewhere or if someone knew how I could get another code.

I'm new to this here site and no I didn't read you review as I haven't figured it all out yet. I just joined today.

thank you

re: Linux XP activation code

I apologize, I've gotten so many of those types of requests.

Surely, the Linux XP guys have a record of your purchase and can help. I used a download version with no code, so I have no idea otherwise. I hope you are able to recover it.

Top 3 open source alternatives to Google Analytics

Let’s start off by taking a look at the open source application that rivals Google Analytics for functions: Piwik. Piwik does most of what Google Analytics does, and chances are it packs the features that you need. Those features include metrics on the number of visitors hitting your site, data on where they come from (both on the web and geographically), from what pages they leave your site, and the ability to track search engine referrals. Piwik also has a number of reports and you can customize the dashboard to view the metrics that you want to see. To make your life easier, Piwik integrates with over 65 content management, ecommerce, and online forum systems like WordPress, Magneto, Joomla!, and vBulletin using plugins. With anything else, you just need to add a tracking code to a page on your site. Read more

AN EARLY VIEW OF GTK+ 3.16

We’ve had long-standing feature requests to turn scrollbars into overlayed indicators, for touch systems. An implementation of this idea has been merged now. We show traditional scrollbars when a mouse is detected, otherwise we fade in narrow, translucent indicators. The indicators are rendered on top of the content and don’t take up extra space. When you move the pointer over the indicator, it turns into a full-width scrollbar that can be used as such. Read more

Linux Container Security

Hypervisors present a smaller attack surface than containers. This is somewhat mitigated in containers by using seccomp, selinux and restricting capabilities in order to reduce the number of kernel entry points that untrusted code can touch, but even so there is simply a greater quantity of privileged code available to untrusted apps in a container environment when compared to a hypervisor environment[1].
