Is this the patch for the intel bug?

Fri, 2018-01-05 01:01

I'm running Debian stable with the 4.9.0-4-amd64 kernel and apt is wanting to upgrade me to 4.9.0-5-amd64. I have a i5-3750K. Is anyone else getting this upgrade and is it the patch for the Intel bug?

50 hours left for KDE - End of Year Fundraiser

Thu, 2018-01-04 22:00

There are about two days left where you can donate to the End of Year 2017 Fundraiser of KDE. Right now, they have only raised 52% of their goal (20'000€). KDE is a great FOSS project: They create and maintain several important applications for the Linux ecosystem, such as:

  • KDE Plasma, an easily customizable Desktop Enviroment with many options
  • Krita, the best FOSS drawing application that is also used by professionals
  • digiKam, a program to manage & enhance your photos
  • Kdenlive is the go-to non-linear video editor for more complex tasks than simply cutting a video
  • and many more...

So please consider donating, allowing KDE to run their servers and empower people in 2018 and beyond.

Linux Game OS

Thu, 2018-01-04 20:41

I was wondering if someone has ever created a Linux distro that is the game itself, basically you start the iso in a VM and go from on there, fix stuff, decrypt, discover the story in files, solve puzzles. e.g. A system infected by a sentient AI etc

it would be educational and entertaining, did someone ever try this?
