Debian and Tails (Based on Debian)

  • LinuxAndUbuntu Distro Review Of The Week Debian Linux 8.7 (Jessie)
    ​I have always been a Ubuntu guy. I use Ubuntu or some other derivatives like Mint or elementary but never have I tried Debian. Well not anymore. I tested Debian and I must say I really like it. The thing with Debian is that stability is prioritized over all other factors. So if you are looking for the latest updates to packages, Debian is not the one. Debian is very popular amongst Linux users and rightly so. It enjoys a very superior community support compared to many other distros and most importantly the stability. So my experience? Let's start the distro review of the week, Debian 8.7.
  • Improve Your Online Security with Tails
    The popular image of online dangers is scary bad guys trying to steal our stuff. This image is accurate if you remember to include unfettered corporate interests as the scary bad guys. Our protections against our good friends the telcos and cable companies have never been strong, and now they're nearly non-existent. Repealing Broadband Privacy Rules, Congress Sides with the Cable and Telephone Industry sums it up beautifully: "Internet providers will be given new powers to harvest your personal information in extraordinarily creepy ways." And buy and sell it with no oversight or accountability, and law enforcement will get their hands on it as surely as road apples draw flies. What can we do about it? I believe that the best solution is legislative. I prefer technical solutions for protecting ourselves from hostile and predatory interests, but there aren't many, and they're incomplete. Internet access is a requirement for many routine aspects of our daily lives, and even if you avoid going online you have no knowledge or control of the information the vendors and service providers that you use are collecting and trading, or what people share about you on social media. Stores, electric and gas utilities, healthcare providers, tradespeople, private clubs, non-profit organizations, charitable groups, banks, insurance companies, and on and on. They all collect information about you, and many trade it freely. Of course, it's not fair to assume that everyone is venal, but even when a vendor has a heart of gold they may be lacking in technical competence.
