What are some things Linux does better than macOS?

Reddit - Mon, 2016-10-24 14:54

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?

Feral Still Won't Confirm Or Deny Vulkan For Deus Ex On Linux

Phoronix - Mon, 2016-10-24 14:42
Back in September Feral Interactive announced Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for Linux and macOS. This game under Windows is one of the few titles using Direct3D 12 and Feral announced their macOS port would be making use of Apple's low-level Metal graphics API. Unfortunately, it's still not clear yet whether the Linux port will feature Vulkan support -- the open, cross-platform equivalent to Metal and D3D12 -- or just have an OpenGL renderer...

Google has annoyed me for the last time. This time with a captcha to "prove" I'm not a bot, when searching. I'm switching to Duck Duck Go.

Reddit - Mon, 2016-10-24 14:39

So I haven't used Duck Duck Go for a while and let me tell YOU - it's REALLY bloody good these days! I actually like it better than Google. Tho I never really "liked" Google, it's the results I cared about.

But I actually LIKE Duck Duck Go. And even the results are actually pretty good these days. Sure there's the Google Bang but... no thanks. Not Google.

I find it HIGHLY insulting that Google has once again presented me with a captcha in order to "prove" (rofl) that I'm not a bot, simply because I did a search.

I don't CARE if the search isn't what Google considers "normal", DON'T present me with a BLOODY captcha!! It pisses me off something chronic.

So long Google, and thanks for all the fish! May your arrogance be some day cured.

Distributing encryption software may break the law

TuxMachines - Mon, 2016-10-24 13:39

Developers, distributors, and users of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) often face a host of legal issues which they need to keep in mind. Although areas of law such as copyright, trademark, and patents are frequently discussed, these are not the only legal concerns for FOSS. One area that often escapes notice is export controls. It may come as a surprise that sharing software that performs or uses cryptographic functions on a public website could be a violation of U.S. export control law.

Export controls is a term for the various legal rules which together have the effect of placing restrictions, conditions, or even wholesale prohibitions on certain types of export as a means to promote national security interests and foreign policy objectives. Export control has a long history in the United States that goes back to the Revolutionary War with an embargo of trade with Great Britain by the First Continental Congress. The modern United States export control regime includes the Department of State's regulations covering export of munitions, the Treasury Department's enforcement of United States' foreign embargoes and sanctions regimes, and the Department of Commerce's regulations applying to exports of "dual-use" items, i.e. items which have civil applications as well as terrorism, military, or weapons of mass destruction-related applications.
