PCLOS

pclinuxos2007.blogspot: We know Linux has enough potential to be a consumer desktop and we also know that Linux has less than 2% of desktop market share. Let's admit the truth. Linux enthusiasts may site a thousand reasons on why Linux does not sit on consumer desktops, or conversely why people are not ready to Linux even after Linux is absolutely ready.

osweekly.com: Everyone is familiar with PCLinuxOS by now. And most of us have preconceived thoughts and opinions on this Linux distribution.

Well, in addition to fixing all the bugs and little quirks, TinyMe has become more stable and loads faster than it was in the early days.

wamukota.blogspot: I told you already of the French Remaster I made for my 82-year old neighbor - I knew it was only a matter time before his Win2K would run into trouble. Two days ago, he informed me that he couldn't Skype anymore. The audio was gone. I went over, with the PCLOS French Remaster under my arm.

  • Don't Trust Consumer Routers
    Another example of why you shouldn’t trust consumer routers. d-link It isn’t just this specific d-link router. We’ve seen the same issues over and over and over with pretty much every non-enterprise vendor. Plus we don’t want our devices used by crackers to DDoS Brian Krebs anymore, right? We are Linux people. We CAN do this ourselves.
  • D-Link DWR-932 router is chock-full of security holes
    Security researcher Pierre Kim has unearthed a bucketload of vulnerabilities affecting the LTE router/portable wireless hotspot D-Link DWR-932. Among these are backdoor accounts, weak default PINs, and hardcoded passwords.
  • The Cost of Cyberattacks Is Less than You Might Think
    What's being left out of these costs are the externalities. Yes, the costs to a company of a cyberattack are low to them, but there are often substantial additional costs borne by other people. The way to look at this is not to conclude that cybersecurity isn't really a problem, but instead that there is a significant market failure that governments need to address.
  • NHS trusts are still using unsupported Windows XP PCs
    AT LEAST 42 National Health Service (NHS) trusts in the UK still run Microsoft's now-defunct Windows XP operating system. Motherboard filed Freedom of Information requests with more than 70 NHS hospital trusts asking how many Windows XP machines they use. 48 replied within the allotted time, and a whopping 42 of them admitted that they still use the operating system that reached end-of-life status in April 2014. Some of the culprits include East Sussex Healthcare, which has 413 Windows XP machines, Sheffield's Children's hospital with 1,290, and Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Trust in London with an insane 10,800 Windows XP-powered PCs. 23 replied to Motherboard's quizzing about whether they have an extended support agreement in place and, unsurprisingly, the majority said that they do not.
