Subject: Top Open Source Learning Management Systems

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

Open source Learning Management Systems have become extremely popular in recent years, but what does open source mean? Open Source technology is technology where the source code is “open”, that is, the code is available to the public and free to be modified. Improvements can be made by developers and it can be spread or sold to the wider community. So, why should an organization choose an open source Learning Management System as opposed to a homegrown or proprietary Learning Management System?

ARM's AArch64 back-end for LLVM to handle the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture is working, but there's still more work ahead of the hardware's general availability in about one year's time...

Subject: GNOME 3 update: 'Connect to Server' lives in GNOME 3.5/3.6, I rant about features being moved and removed, and I fix my GNOME 3.4 problem in Debian Wheezy

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

In my test of the Fedora 18 Alpha release, I was left thinking the "connect to server" feature in the Nautilus file manager disappeared in versions 3.5.x and 3.6.x of the GNOME desktop environment. Thanks to readers, I learned that "connect to server" has moved to a separate application that you call from the shell with the not-so-friendly name "Nautilus-connect-server."

Subject: US patent chief to software patent critics: -- Give it a rest already --

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

Says explosion of smartphone patent litigation is "natural and reasonable." David Kappos, the head of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, offered a strong defense of software patents in a Tuesday address at the Center for American Progress. Kappos touted several provisions of the America Invents Act (AIA), which he argued would allow the patent office to weed out low-quality software and business method patents. Addressing those who claim the patent system is broken, Kappos said, "Give it a rest already. Give the AIA a chance to work. Give it a chance to even get started."

One of the biggest talking points in the run-up to the release of Windows 8 has been the feature that will supposedly lock down the operating system so that it cannot be infected by malware at boot-time.

Subject: Review: Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal a mix of promise, pain

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

Standard releases aren't terribly different from the bi-annual LTS products, though they tend to be slightly less conservative in code offerings. The Ubuntu development community lets off the brakes a little and sticks some shiny back in.Ubuntu 12.10 is no exception, so make no mistake—there's some shiny goodness in this release. We'll get into what makes this a decent desktop and even more decent server release. But there's a little tarnish mixed in, too, and that makes Ubuntu 12.10 less special than previous editions.

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

A previously unknown rootkit is infecting Linux web servers and injecting malicious code into web pages served by infected servers. The rootkit was discovered by a user of security mailing list Full Disclosure, who has posted his observations, including the suspicious kernel module, to the mailing list. The malware adds an iframe to every web page served by the infected system via the nginx proxy – including error pages.

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

yes, installation is a pain. Hand-partitioning, hand-mounting and generating your own fstab files takes more time and effort than clicking "install" and merrily heading off to do something else. But the process of installing Arch teaches you a lot. It pulls back the curtain so you can see what's behind it. In fact it makes the curtain disappear entirely. In Arch, you are the person behind the curtain.

Subject: Generate a strong password from the command line

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

Having a strong password is the most important thing you can do to protect your account or server and to keep your data secure. Common thinking is that a strong password should be comprised of at least 14 characters, including lowercase and uppercase alphabetic characters, numbers and symbols and should never be based on a dictionary word. Using a long password is much more secure that using a short one, the longer the password the harder it is to guess. In this post, we will take a look at a several different ways to generate a strong password using the Linux command line.
