Let's say I run Cyanogenmod on my phone and use F-Droid as my repository (no Google services). Is SELinux really necessary at this point? I run Debian on my other computers, and they don't run SELinux. Withouy Google services, it doesn't seem like computing on the phone is all that different from computing on a laptop (aside from the lack of mouse/keyboard).submitted by /u/the_humeister
Red Hat Product Security recently celebrated our 15th anniversary this summer and while I cannot claim to have been with Red Hat for that long (although I’m coming up on 8 years myself), I’ve watched the changes from the “0day” of the Red Hat Security Response Team to today. In fact, our SRT was the basis for the security team that Mandrakesoft started back in the day.
In 1999, I started working for Mandrakesoft, primarily as a packager/maintainer. The offer came, I suspect, because of the amount of time I spent volunteering to maintain packages in the distribution. I also was writing articles for TechRepublic at the time, so I also ended up being responsible for some areas of documentation, contributing to the manual we shipped with every boxed set we sold (remember when you bought these things off the shelf?).
Well, here we go again with yet another new technology with a name that doesn't tell us much about what it is: Hyperledger. Hyperledger is related to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and blockchains... but, what are these things? They sound like science fiction: I have plenty of Bitcoins, so let's go splurge on a nice evening at the Ethereum.
GamingOnLinux: This is amazing news for Linux gaming.
Microsoft's (MSFT) forthcoming SQL Server for Linux is more than a one-product development.
I was a long time Linux user until I switched to OS X about 4 years ago. I've been trying to find reasons to ditch macOS on my MacBook Air but haven't been able to do so. What are some things that Linux does better than macOS? To me macOS is not only as powerful as Linux but looks better and adds a ton of ready to go options for you. What am I missing here?submitted by /u/ingenioutor
