Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier Dons a New Red Hat

Filed under
Linux

Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier was a regular name in Linux not so long ago. He first appeared on my radar writing for the different websites I visited. It seemed like he wrote for them all, even the ones I eventually began writing for myself. Later, he really solidified his hero status in my book by actually becoming a full-time Novell employee as community manager for openSUSE. But now, after a bit of a sabbatical, he's traded in all his green t-shirts for red hats.

I almost lost track of Zonker after he left openSUSE. I did see some articles by him in the interim, but I finally heard what's he doing now. In a post on his personal blog, Brockmeier said, "Today, I'm going to have the privilege of joining [Red Hat] – and I'm really excited and optimistic about the possibilities." But that was it. I had to find out more. So, in an email interview Brockmeier said he actually started this past Monday. Monday and Tuesday were new-hire orientation in Raleigh, but he says he will be telecommuting from his current residence in St. Louis.

Public sector organisations make a soft target for fraudsters because budget and resource shortages frequently leave hospitals short-changed when it comes to security basics like regular software patching," said Tony Rowan, Chief Security Consultant at SentinelOne. "The results highlight the fact that old school AV technology is powerless to halt virulent, mutating forms of malware like ransomware and a new more dynamic approach to endpoint protection is needed.

10 reasons to use Cinnamon as your Linux desktop environment

Recently I installed Fedora 25, and found that the current version of KDE Plasma was unstable for me; it crashed several times a day before I decided to try to try something different. After installing a number of alternative desktops and trying them all for a couple hours each, I finally settled on using Cinnamon until Plasma is patched and stable. Here's what I found. Read more
