Debian vs Ubuntu

LXer - Wed, 2018-06-06 00:50
Ubuntu and Debian are two of the most popular Linux distributions in history. Aside from that, they're very closely related, making it hard for new Linux users to sort out the differences between the two.

Markdown alternative

Reddit - Wed, 2018-06-06 00:35

Until now I took my notes in Markdown and vim.

Now I want to change a little bit the set up to can take more notes and be more organized with them. I thought about Org Mode but i don't want to learn EMacs for now, so if it's that doesn't have a big learning curve and it's lightweight please give me suggestions.

It can be an extension to markdown that it's nice or other program.

I want that the program to support multiple file inclusion, code snippets and output to pdf.

Edit: forgot to mention: I will use it for notes in lectures, for college, quick references for when I'm coding and something like a journal.

  • Linux 4.17 Arrives with New Kernel Memory Consistency Module

    Linus Torvalds officially released the Linux 4.17 kernel on June 3, after seven release candidates. Linux 4.17 is the third major Linux kernel release of 2018 and follows the Linux 4.16 release, which was announced on April 1.

    Among the major new features that have landed in Linux 4.17 is the new Linux Kernel Memory Consistency Module (LKMM).

  • What’s New in macOS

    Apps built using OpenGL and OpenCL will continue to run in macOS 10.14, but these legacy technologies are deprecated in macOS 10.14. Games and graphics-intensive apps that use OpenGL should now adopt Metal. Similarly, apps that use OpenCL for computational tasks should now adopt Metal and Metal Performance Shaders.

  • Phoronix Test Suite 8.0 Debuts With Official Windows Support, Easier Benchmark Creation

    Phoronix Test Suite 8.0 has premiered today as the latest quarterly update to our open-source, cross-platform automated benchmarking software. This also happens to be our largest release ever and also commemorates ten years since the release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.0 and fourteen-years since the start of Phoronix. Here is a look at some of the many enhancements to find in this open-source benchmarking software.

  • [Richard W.M. Jones on] Half-baked ideas: Server remote management with an RPi Zero

    I guess like most people who work a lot with computers, I have a large number of computers in a “server room” (my loft). I’m too cheap to buy actual servers though, so most of these computers lack any sort of remote management / IPMI / BMC etc. I also just bought 6 Intel NUCs and these are also ideal as development servers, but unless you buy very specific (and unobtainium) versions they don’t come with remote management either.

Ubuntu: Ubuntu's New Server Installer and Ubuntu 18.10 Plans

TuxMachines - Tue, 2018-06-05 22:49
  • Ubuntu's New Server Installer Will Soon Support RAID & LAN Bonding

    With Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS there is a new server installer that is completely redone compared to the Debian Installer it's been relying upon to this point. But it is missing some basic features for traditional server administrators like RAID, encryption, and LVM partitioning.

Samsung’s Chromebook Plus now supports GNU/Linux apps

TuxMachines - Tue, 2018-06-05 22:48
  • Samsung’s Chromebook Plus now supports Linux apps

    Google began bringing Linux app support to Chrome OS almost exactly one month ago, but it only started with a single device, the very expensive Pixelbook. Now, that’s changing: Linux support is becoming available for Samsung’s Chromebook Plus as well, as spotted by users on Reddit.

  • Samsung Chromebook Plus is second device to support Linux apps

    The idea of Chromebooks (and Chrome OS in general) supporting Linux apps changes the game for the Chrome OS ecosystem. If Chromebooks support Linux apps there suddenly are so many more applications available to run, which makes Chromebooks a more robust competitor to Windows and Mac laptops.

    However, the only Chromebook that supported Linux apps when Google announced the feature was the Pixelbook – probably the most expensive Chromebook on the market.

    But some savvy Redditors just found that the much-more-reasonably-priced Samsung Chromebook Plus now supports Linux apps as well. It’s a little tricky to get them installed, but the support is there nonetheless.

Mozilla: New Extensions and "Overscripted!"

TuxMachines - Tue, 2018-06-05 22:44
  • Get All the Color, New Firefox Extension Announced

    Remember when you were a kid and wanted to paint your room your favorite color? Or the first time you dyed your hair a different color and couldn’t wait to show all your friends (or at least, wanted to)? We feel that, too, and that’s why we put the new Color Extension in the mix of add-ons available for Firefox browser.

  • It’s A New Firefox Multi-tasking Extension: Side View

    Introducing Side View! Side View is a Firefox extension that allows you to view two different browser tabs simultaneously in the same tab, within the same browser window.


    With Side View, you can compare news stories and informational material against one another. You can also read an article on one side, and compare quoted source material to the original on the other side.

    And this is a really great use of Side View: Comparing revisions of documents and images to note changes and see if the new version looks and reads better than the old version. Version control—all in the same window!

  • Latest Firefox Test Pilot Experiments: Custom Color and Side View

    Before we bring new features to Firefox, we give them a test run to make sure they’re right for our users. To help determine which features we add and how exactly they should work, we created the Test Pilot program.

    Since the launch of Test Pilot, we have experimented with 16 different features, and three have graduated to live in Firefox full time: Activity Stream, Containers and Screenshots. Recently, Screenshots surpassed more than 100M+ screenshots since it launched. Thanks to active Firefox users who opt to take part in Test Pilot experiments.

    This week, the Test Pilot team is continuing to evolve Firefox features with two new extensions that will offer users a more customizable and productive browsing experience.

  • Introducing Firefox Color and Side View

    We’re excited to launch two new Test Pilot experiments that add power and style to Firefox.

  • Overscripted! Digging into JavaScript execution at scale

    As champions of a healthy Internet, we at Mozilla have been increasingly concerned about the current advertisement-centric web content ecosystem. Web-based ad technologies continue to evolve increasingly sophisticated programmatic models for targeting individuals based on their demographic characteristics and interests. The financial underpinnings of the current system incentivise optimizing on engagement above all else. This, in turn, has evolved an insatiable appetite for data among advertisers aggressively iterating on models to drive human clicks.

  • Overscripted Web: a Mozilla Data Analysis Challenge

    What happens while you are browsing the Web? Mozilla wants to invite data and computer scientists, students and interested communities to join the “Overscripted Web: a Data Analysis Challenge”, and help explore JavaScript running in browsers and what this means for users. We gathered a rich dataset and we are looking for exciting new observations, patterns and research findings that help to better understand the Web. We want to bring the winners to speak at MozFest, our annual festival for the open Internet held in London.
