Yes only Linux has KVM.
You know some good people smugglers ?
Secure boot make that hard....
But running Linux is a better choice.
I am only getting cast off phones now until Purism releases their phone.
Nothing else can be trusted.
The most dreaded is
"Our company have now partnered with Microsoft'
Usually this means no company within a few years
Soon you can get Purism..
Screw Atari scum.
Their joypads were pretty cool too - I remember you could daisy chain up to 4 sidewinders via the PC's game port (this was pretty good at the time as this was pre USB)
Also the sidewinder drivers were added to the Linux kernel so worked out the box with no additional drivers needed (unlike in Windows..)
I mean i'm sure it's all legal and above board but can anyone explain why a team from Facebook were in the offices of Cambridge Analytica shortly after the story broke ?
So cannabis possession ?
Well there are distro's out there that have pretty much the latest stable kernel.
And if you are a desktop user it makes sense to run rolling release distros, otherwise X hardware isn't supported, GPU drivers are slower than they would be (4.15 is the kernel for AMD Vega users for example).
In fact as a Linux desktop user for about 15 years I would say you have less issues running Arch than Fedora, etc.
As well as Arch (and variants) there is Solus and OpenSUSE tumbleweed, I would avoid Debian sid as that is not designed to be a usable distro and will break eventually.
Also Gentoo but that is a completely different use case and the stable version is often well behind latest stable packages
At least they bothered to actually do and publish reports.
Unlike the ultra-moron Brexiteers 'leading' our exit from the EU
Retpoline support patches are coming soon for Linux
In Tory Britain they have even pissed out human rights away let alone privacy
If you voted for these shisters you are a moron.
When they are eventually released...
In living memory.
Makes the new Labour era look almost liberal
Linus didn't accuse them of breaking a license.
He just accused them of writing joke code (i.e what their entire business is about).... which should have been worse.
I hope open source (a term he originally helped coin) companies fund Peren's legal costs against these uber dicks.
> I no longer seem to have full control or understand of what is happening on my computer or phone.
Which is why you should run Linux
Aside from systemd where no one seems to understand how it got there or what its really doing.
A famous Finnish programmer also had a Sinclair QL ///
Will the new Linux Lord be a women too ?
(the Dr Who thing seems to have upset a certain type of person..)
> What would happen if Linus or a similar person got knocked down by a bus?
Greg would take over - he's almost the polar opposite personality.
Signed, an ex Amiga user.
> Trouble is it was New Labour who were pushing for the ID card linked to a totally over the top database
However Corbyn's Labour have promised no further loss of civil liberties to fight terrorism, it is only right wing c*nt parties, UKIP and the Tories that are actively promising LESS rights for all
Perhaps you missed this interview the other day
2. Mint users
3. kde-neon users
4. Xubuntu users
5. ElementaryOS users
If you want the latest stable Nvidia driver just add this PPA - no need to manually install the binary
info -> http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2015/08/ubuntu-nvidia-graphics-drivers-ppa-is-ready-for-action
Anyone running Nvidia really should be using the latest drivers or you are missing out on many performance fixes (vulkan in particular )
I'm sure it won't lead to anything, I really wish it would.
Plasma is a far better desktop than Gnome, for power users and newbies.
I cannot imagine a newbie coping with Gnome, for one in order to use the mutant tablet/desktop you have to 'adjust your workflow', the lack of such luxuries as a taskbar and minimise button will not go down well (you have to use memory to remember which windows you have open rather than a visual aid).
Also most KDE applications are far better, take Dolphin for example (the file manager).
Personally I would advise everyone to use kde-neon which is Ubuntu LTS based but has latest stable KDE/QT
The latest version(s) of Plasma are more than enough for the great unwashed. It is stable, its fast, and arguably pretty. And unlike Gnome Plasma has the normal things you expect from a desktop, i.e a taskbar (so you don't have to rely on memory) and such luxuries as a minimise button (you need extensions to get those things in Gnome).
Newbies could pick up Plasma easily, with gnome you need to 'change your workflow' to use it.
How could the government mandate backdoors in opensource protocols which have no company to mandate/talk to?
I wonder if Amber Rudd has heard of PGP?
Also Sparrowhawk - keystroke logger works on FreeBSD, looks like they didn't get Linux support on that one
BaldEagle - effects Linux + BSD BTW
However looks like it used HAL which I believe is no longer included in modern Linux distros.
The mass surveillance system will never sleep.
(I'm no Labour fan either..)
If you voted Tory you voted for this regardless if you knew it or not.
Yes Labour were shits also, but they did actually back down from the utter worst planned laws.
The Tories are seeing it through.
You can read tweets without an account.
Will the changes be needed (i.e login, etc) for listening to radio shows (Live and previously recorded) ?
As I don't give a toss about TV shows, I do like to download various 6 Music (Craig charles, Gilles peterson, Cerys) and documentaries on world service and radio 4.
This backward Britain making whipped cream is now a drug offence.
Well China this week announced a crackdown on vpns (making them illegal) -> https://www.engadget.com/2017/01/23/china-vpn-illegal-internet-censorship-government-approval/
Only a matter of time until Theresa copies the idea.
I would say everyone should learn how to connect via Tor bridges/pluggable transports as soon as possible (so your ISP isn't aware you are using Tor and will also get around DPI)
But people have been crying out for the end of X11 for a long time.
For a start there are inherent security issues with X11 that will never be fixed (like Windows its the design itself that can not be fixed - see atom tables, an unfixable Windows security flaw)
Not too much different from this country
'As the bill was passing through Parliament, several organizations noted their alarm at section 217 which obliged ISPs, telcos and other communications providers to let the government know in advance of any new products and services being deployed and allow the government to demand "technical" changes to software and systems.'
There are the LTS branches also..
There are plenty of people like this.
They generally work on Linux/opensource projects however.
I didn't think we were talking about weed?
What about HMRC, DWP, the food standards agency, the environment agency, the NHS and various other organisations?
Do we pay them so they can monitor everyone's browsing history ?
Even the Stasi didn't spy on everyone.
But the food standard agency really do have access to your browsing history now.
I miss your point.
Before the Blair government
You used to get naked 16 yr olds in tabloids regularly, the Sundam Sport has a countdown to Linsey Dawn McKenzie's 16th birthday when she was 15, when the countdown was over they showed her tits.
> they could ask a UK based company to modify the ones distributed not to match the source but that might get caught.
They would do, the md5sum would be different, many package managers using gpg signatures (yum, apt, pacman) would not even allow you to install the package unless forced.
How can they force open source protocols to code to make it easier for the UK government to spy on its citizens?
Take Tor for example
