HackMy...phase II

For those of you who don't know, Hackmy... forums started out as a "advanced" forum for users of PCLinuxOS.

HackMy has moved to a new host and has a whole new look and goal though.

Hackmy is now open to users of Linux, ANY distro.

In order for users to get the best help with the distro of their choice, the admins at HackMy... felt it was best to get a feel for what other distros do and how they work.

So now, HackMy...Forums offers insight and assistance to Linux users far and wide.

You say your main distro forum won't let you discuss things like how to activate or use the Root account? Come on down, we have folks who have no problem discussing the pros and cons, as well as the How To's of making that happen.

You say your favorite distro forum discourages discussion of "advanced" topics? Bring it on over.

The folks at HackMy... forums are distro inclusive, yet distro separated. They are most concerned with Linux first and the million and one ways ( or more ) to Hack different solutions in it.

Now, this doesn't mean the HackMy...forums are encouraging users to abandon their local favorite ditro forum wholesale. You will still likely get the best distro specific assistance for your distro in their official forums and the admins at HackMy want to encourage that.

However, for the topics that said main distro forum says "not here please" and you ask "If not here, then where?" perhaps, HackMy... forums are the exact where, you are looking for.

Give Hackmy a shot and a shout at http://hackmy.pclosbe.org

Why Linux stands out amongst other OSes

Up until recently, Elementary OS was my platform of choice. It's an elegant, simple, and user-friendly solution for the desktop. One thing that the Elementary developers do that I believe is fairly wise is to not allow upgrades from one major release to another. In other words, if you use Elementary OS Loki, you can't upgrade to Juno. To get the benefits of Juno, you must do a full-blown re-install of the OS. Why is this route wise? My latest adventures in Linux will help explain. A few months ago, I purchased a System76 Thelio. It's a beast of a desktop, while at the same a masterful work of art. Preinstalled on that desktop machine was System76's own Pop!_OS. Based on Ubuntu, it seemed like a great way for me to dive back into the GNOME desktop. So I did. It took no time to get accustomed to the new workflow with GNOME. Once my fingers understood the new keyboard shortcuts, I was good to go. Read more

Rancher Labs Releases Slim OS for Its Edge-Focused K3s Platform

Rancher Labs has developed an operating system for its recently launched edge-specific k3s Kubernetes distribution designed for resource-constrained environments and easier management when deployed within the k3s environment. Sheng Liang, CEO and co-founder of Rancher Labs, said the conveniently named k3OS uses the same declarative syntax as other Kubernetes resources. This allows a user to install and upgrade the k3s platform and the k3OS at the same time. Users can also use the k3OS platform to model infrastructure-as-a-code, which allows for repeatable cluster deployments and should make the k3s clusters more secure when running in isolated environments. It also has a reduced attack surface that further bolsters its security posture. Read more

OpenBSD 6.5 Released With RETGUARD, OpenRSYNC
