mostly a review of LMUE 17 XFCE with simple walk-through.
Dammit, Clement Lefebvre, you and your team at Linux Mint have gone and done it. Y’all, and the folks at Xfce too. Why couldn’t you just leave well enough alone? I was perfectly fine and dandy with Maya and now you’ve gone and ruined it by coming out with something five times better. Thanks for [...] Continue reading Linux Mint Xfce: Moving From Maya to Rebecca

So we are two!  That is the second most amazing thing in GNU/Linux (flexibility and power), being the 4 freedoms number one.

SSD (samsung) performance issues blog
source: Planet openSuSE may 11, 2015 
(two posts: this is one)
An avalanche of reports started to surface last September when users began to notice that their usually speedy Samsung SSD 840 and SSD 840 EVO drives were no longer performing as they used to. We've looked deep into the problem to understand what's been fixed and what hasn't. Samsung owes its customers an explanation. When SSD Performance Goes Awry.

+Gonzalo Velasco C. just noticed so fyi.
at grub on a thinkpad, went into advanced options for debian 8, it has options to boot with sysvinit there. when chosen, init was pid1, and quick explore using systemctl gave errors (instead of services etc as expected if sysd not running)

laptop was deb7, dist-upgraded to 8. hadn't noticed before, as after upgrade i restored opensuse's grub to boot (it was modded with nice pic).

will likely explore later as to how/what it boots differently..

once again, the user is the weakest link [in the chain]
This week, nationwide beauty products chain Sally Beauty disclosed that, for the second time in a year, it was investigating reports that hackers had broken into its networks and stolen customer credit card data. That investigation is ongoing, but I recently had an opportunity to interview a ...

still got an atari 2600 (vcs) console; sega dreamcast, ...
would actually setup atari (tons of cartridges) alas no joysticks (and the games using the various steering controllers weren't as fun)...
---
atari 2600 impressed me; in theory a 4KB system, but decision made to cut costs restricted it to 2KB which isn't much memory for game programs.   early games were simple, but some later ones were impressive given memory constraints...

"Windows simply doesn’t have the feature set or security I want. Mac OS X is too locked-down for my tastes, and also lacks a number of features. Both try to lock me into their own worlds too much. With Debian, I can use my system the way I want to."
John makes a great case for xmonad. I’ve long thought about moving to a tiling window manager and xmonad might be the one to try. Even more impressively, John’s young kids use it. He’s also a Debian...

I'm pretty happy today, not only because we have an awesome Fedora release but also because we published three new websites: arm.fedoraproject.org · spins.fedoraproject.org · labs.fedoraproject.org. We started not long time ago, just a few days after F22 Beta release and it was challenging to ...

note 

"Quite a few people are going to be installing Fedora 22 in the coming days, searching for things in the software center and not finding what they want. This is because some applications still don’t ship AppData files, which have become compulsory for this release. So far, over 53% of applications shipped in Fedora ship the required software center metadata, up from the original 12% in Fedora 21. If you don’t like this, you can either use dnf to install the package on the command line, or set gsettings set org.gnome.software require-appdata false. If you want to see your application in the software center in the future, please file a bug either upstream or downstream (I’ve already filed a lot of upstream bugs) or even better write the metadata and get it installed either upstream tarball or downstream in the Fedora package. Most upstream and downstream maintainers have shipped the extra software center information, but some others might need a little reminder about it from users."

"I do all my work on a single, small laptop. It runs Ubuntu—whatever version is reasonably current. I like Ubuntu because it Just Works."
Beth’s Linux journey is a lot like mine. I don’t like to get under the hood or tweak too much but I love that I can if I have to. And just as Beth likes Linux because it stays out of her way, I also...
