SuSE and/or Mandriva

Actually I have both or neither if you whish, my Mandriva 2006 is actually an upgraded cooker, and SuSE is a speciality SuSE Open (the speedy one) upgraded with the 10.0 DVD.
Although I have many years under my belt with Mandr[ake/iva], and almost no real life experience with SuSE, I am "affraid" I will have to change my opinion about SuSE.
I totally agree with srlinux, SuSE is reaaly nicelly, and profesionally
put together, logical, and most of all, fast as Sal's new HD (the bike, not his harddisk).
Mandriva made some really nice things on booting, currently cooker is my undisputed champion on booting, but on the day to day compiles, desktop work SuSE seems snapier.

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].
