Control your data with Syncthing: An open source synchronization tool

TuxMachines - Fri, 2018-09-21 12:56

These days, some of our most important possessions—from pictures and videos of family and friends to financial and medical documents—are data. And even as cloud storage services are booming, so there are concerns about privacy and lack of control over our personal data. From the PRISM surveillance program to Google letting app developers scan your personal emails, the news is full of reports that should give us all pause regarding the security of our personal information.

Question about how Linux handles frozen programs

Reddit - Fri, 2018-09-21 12:47

I have noticed that on Linux or MacOS when a program freezes it tends to be the only frozen program, whereas with Windows I remember a frozen program freezing the entire computer. Why the difference?
