Subject: PHP devs lob second patch at super-critical CGI bug

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The developers of PHP have released updates to thwart fresh attacks against systems that use the scripting language to dynamically generate web pages. All users are encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.4.3 or PHP 5.3.13, as appropriate, after a serious security bug in PHP-CGI-based setups was disclosed. Developers attempted to fix this long-standing, but only recently discovered, flaw in a new version on 3 May, before deciding the fix was incomplete and releasing a new set of patches on Tuesday, 8 May 8.

Subject: Precise Pangolin: Ubuntu Grows Up

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Precise Pangolin is a big step up in many regards. The new Ubuntu OS is friendlier with legacy hardware. It's peppier and more responsive. I find it is far less sluggish on my older gear. It flies on my newest hardware. However, while its Unity interface has been improved somewhat, it's still too limited and too confining, at least for some experienced Linux users.

I had an old Mac Mini that simply absolutely would not install any of the newer Linux distributions, because they now support that abomination called EFI - and while EFI tries to be a "better BIOS", it's actually worse in just about all respects.

Subject: Linux Hardware Support Myths and Legends

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

With a new major Windows release just around the corner we are being treated to an onslaught of articles proclaiming the failings of Linux on the desktop. You'd think that such articles wouldn't be necessary if the Linux desktop had indeed failed. One recurring theme is the idea that Linux has terrible hardware support. The premise is always that Linux is impossibly difficult to install and that lots of hardware just doesn't work with Linux.
