Windows v. Linux Security Bugs/Exploits and How Much More is Linux's Security Improved With grsecurity?

Thu, 2018-06-21 20:31
  1. If you took Windows and Linux and paid 100 different professional security firms/teams test them to find security bugs, which OS would do better, and about how many bugs/exploits might be found in each?

  2. About how many secure from bugs/exploits would be found in each?

  3. Would something like Qubes be just as vulnerable to all the bugs/exploits that were found in Linux as, say, Debian would be? Would Qubes' design mitigate any of the bugs/exploits that would leave Debian or other Linux distributions vulnerable? (I understand that Qubes' method is isolation/virtualization, but I'm talking about the bugs in Linux, underneath it.)

  4. Would Debian patched with grsecurity be able to circumvent or protect against exploits just as well as plain Qubes might be?

Is there any extensive guide on how fonts work in linux and how to properly install and use them in various linux applications?

Thu, 2018-06-21 20:24

For a long time I have been confused about how fonts work, the proper way to install then and what to put in my dotfiles to use them.

Disabling of mouse wheel tab switching in Chrome?

Thu, 2018-06-21 15:26

All the threads I can find discussing this are quite old. As a new convert to Linux, It seems strange to me that this is not only default behaviour, but there's no way to disable in the settings, or flags.. I have a momentum Logitech mouse, so it's triggering this behaviour frequently.

Was there ever some sort of resolution to disabling this navigation feature or is it a permanently enabled gesture?

Article 13 threatens code sharing platforms (like Github and Gitlab) and more!

Thu, 2018-06-21 12:43

I don't know if anybody mentioned this already, but Article 13 got adopted yesterday and if this goes through, then starting from July Europeans will most likely not be able to use those kinds of platforms, but it is preventable!

You can read more about this at (if you are American you can't really do much, but you should spread the word since Article 13 threatens not only code sharing, but also commentary videos on Youtube, meme formats, remixes, blogs and parodies so a lot of content that you watch can disappear from the internet)
