mandrivachronicles.blogspot: As a plain user, I spent more than eleven years of my life mastering life-saving secrets to protect my Windows system. Then, Vista came along with its bothersome "Are you sure you want to to this?" and virtually the same problems XP had.

The latest kernel includes a number of nice headline features, such as the new getrandom() system call and sealed files APIs that we covered in previous issues of LU&D.
