THIS article deals with an important topic that we recently mentioned but have not had time to delve deeper into. Over the past fortnight we corresponded with people and debated in the IRC channels all sorts of possibilities. There are different speculations from various people about Microsoft’s latest E.E.E. (embrace, extend, extinguish) moves. One of our contributors, iophk, sent us the following executive summary regarding the R project. #Linux #Microsoft
Concerns about E.E.E. (embrace, extend, extinguish) by Microsoft, which this time targets science and a lot of schools (many young people)

I am running Xubuntu 14.04 LTS 32 bit. Chrome will abandon me in March. That really sucks. Chromium is an ok substitute but there are subtle differences.

In December 2015, Mozilla announced that its ambitious new operating system would not be appearing on any new phones, but the project may still live on as a platform for smart TVs and IoT devices. The mobile device space is dominated by two platforms: Apple's iOS and Google's Android. Is there space for another platform?

#Google has refuted a recent security report that claimed two-third of #smartphones and tablets running its #Android operating system as exposed to attacks due to a #Linux kernel vulnerability. The Mountain View-based company says that the actual number of devices that are affected by the "keyrings" bug is significantly smaller. Furthermore, the company has released a security patch to AOSP and OEMs.
Google says most devices running Android 4.4 and lower aren't affected by the security flaw, nor are devices with Android 5.0 and higher.

Your phone probably don't have enough RAM for the exploit to work, nor strong enough CPU for the exploit to be complete within a reasonable time-frame. The exploit also only works if the attacker already has access to a user account on the device (or enough access to make one)! Yet somehow media managed to make it look like the end of the world for android users...

One of the props that I picked up to decorate DNA Lounge at the first #Cyberdelia was an old payphone. It wasn't hooked up for the first party, but just in time for the second party, it now runs #Linux.
In 2015, we threw a party called Cyberdelia, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the movie Hackers. It was epic: we built skate ramps and everything. We're having a second Cyberdelia in two weeks, on Friday, Jan 22. Except this time, the hackers will be watching Tank Girl instead of Hackers! For the costume contest, either Hackers or Tank Girl attire is considered "on message". You will join ...

A year after #Google's #Chromium Security team proposed marking all #HTTP sites which are non-secure, the company is preparing to implement the policy in Chrome. #Linux
Google's push for all websites to be HTTPS has so far been all carrot. But the company is now using its big stick: a large red cross through every website that doesn't offer an encrypted connection.

For XP users that sucks. But see that XP is obsolete even for m$! But 32 bits GNU/Linux is very much up to date and running wild, yet.

Trouble is, according to the article, that the new algorithm currently only  works on HTTPS sites and has to be enabled on both the browser and the server otherwise it doesn't come into play. Evaluation only for now.

No real loss since Chrome is plenty fast enough as is.

TODAY is a special day. It’s #Penguin Awareness Day, but putting aside the #Linux and the #Tux mascot, there’s not much to celebrate because the Linux Foundation reveals signs of rot. The #FSF is to the Linux #Foundation what astronomy (science) is to astrology (big business around pseudo-science) and having already attempted to delete GNU from history* (a common phenomenon), the Linux Foundation now deletes the role that individuals played in the development of the system. We’re meant or at least led to thinking that the kernel, Linux, was quietly ‘taken over’ by a consortium of corporations, many of which have mixed loyalties (not just to Linux).
Words of warning about the direction taken by the Linux Foundation, where Microsoft impact has grown and community role has been diminished or completely decimated

I closed my LinkedIn account tonight. It was the last social media account I had, and I just couldn’t see the point of keeping it open. I’ll explain why later in this post, but the gist of it is that I’m finally free of all social media services.
