Beginning on Monday, the security of the Linux kernel source code has become a little bit tighter with the addition of two-factor authentication for the kernel's Git code repositories.
Contributing code changes to the Linux kernel sources at Kernel.org already required more than just a password, even before the change. Developers must use their own unique SSH public keys to login to the Git repositories. But not even this added security layer was truly failsafe – as the software's maintainers found out in 2011 when their servers were rooted.
"My first real exposure to Linux was at a friend's house," said Linux Rants blogger Mike Stone. "He was trying to make a Macintosh he owned into a useful computer, so he'd dual-booted it with a version of Linux called MkLinux. I was absolutely fascinated by it and the FOSS philosophy, and after using his computer for a week or so, I looked into getting Linux [on] my own."
Productivity is essential to anyone's day, no matter who you are or where you work. In this article, I'll be sharing some of my favorite Linux applications that I rely on to keep my productivity levels in check. I'll also share some of my rationale behind me recommending each application and why you might wish to consider it as well.
It looks like the big story today, picked up by many news carriers, is Munich's decision/pondering a return to Windows. Also tonight, Debian celebrates 21 years and a Linux Migrant looks at new Pisi Linux 1. SymphonyOS is back from the grave and appropriately calling itself "Phoenix". OMG!Ubuntu! says Ubuntu is the "Superman" of Linux distros and a review of Plasma 5 tops the KDE news. All this and so much more are in tonight's Linux news recap.
Jahia was incepted in 2002 in Switzerland – the name comes from the contraction of Java (our core language) and Bahia (which means “bay” in Brazil). To support the international growth of the project, Jahia Solutions Group was later formed (in 2005) with offices throughout Europe and Jahia Inc. (the US subsidiary) was created in 2008. Jahia has now offices in Geneva, Paris, Toronto, Chicago, Washington, DC, Dusseldorf and Klagenfurt – and outsourced support centers in Australia and Nicaragua.
In the traditional hypervisor Virtual Machine (VM) approach that is used by VMware's ESX and open-source options like Xen and KVM, a host operating system runs the hypervisors, which then in turn requires an operating system of its own for VMs. The Docker model is a bit different in that only the host operating system is required and containerized apps then run on top of that OS.
Actually SUSE Linux began deployment at ESA in 2012 and has been continuing until now, the distro is used by 450 teams in the European Space Operations Centre at ESA, this includes being used by Mission Control Systems who are responsible for simulation and control of aircraft and satellites outside the atmosphere and further still.

Introducing Professor Deepak Phatak, IIT Bombay to Indian audience is akin to introducing Sachin Tendulkar to Indians, a sacrilege one would hazard at one’s own peril. Suffice it to remind that Professor Deepak Phatak, IIT Bombay is a recipient of the Padma Shri for his contribution to Science and Technology.
In an interview with Prabhakar Deshpande, Professor DB Phatak shares his perspective on the role of open source and how technology can transform healthcare and education.
Now that Red Hat has released RHEL 7 with systemd in place of the erstwhile SysVinit, it appears that the end of the world is indeed approaching. A schism and war of egos is unfolding within the Linux community right now, and it is drawing blood on both sides. Ultimately, no matter who "wins," Linux looks to lose this one.
Being released at the end of last week was Viber 4.2 for Linux that replaces the badly outdated version. The Windows version for a while has been up to version 4.2 along with the iOS and Android ports while the Linux client remained very dated. Finally, the Linux client was updated with many bug-fixes and a matching feature set to Viber 4.2 for Windows with this VoIP/chat program.
Viber for Linux was originally released natively back in 2013. Viber for Linux can be downloaded at Viber.com and the binary blob is officially tested by the company just against Ubuntu Linux.
That’s a little bit mind-boggling but I think I understand. So if Raspbian is a version of Debian, is there ‘pure’ Debian on Raspberry Pi?
Yes there is. In fact, there was Debian for Raspberry Pi before there was Raspbian. It was the version specifically designed for the CPU that the Raspberry Pi uses, as not every Linux distro has a version that will run on Raspberry Pi.
