Going through the alphabetical jungle, we've reached letter X, so it's time to give #Xubuntu, an Xfce-flavored version of #Ubuntu, its due attention. We've seen the original distro in action, as well as the Plasma-armed #Kubuntu, and so far the results are rather mixed. #Linux

At work we use Xubuntu because of it lightweight desktop environment. Also, I like how they integrated the window positioning like Mint.

The rise of #Linux on the desktop is always just around the corner, right? Most recently it was Valve’s new focus on #Steam powered #Linux gaming that was supposed to boost the open source OS to new heights. However, the most recent Steam Hardware &Software Survey shows a big drop for Linux. It’s now less than 1% of Steam systems. #Valve

+David .Truesdale As well , notice all the SteamOS users in the survey, oh wait they weren't included. As well only 1% of all users who actually received the survey were on Linux. People are just making click bait as is tradition

+Georgi Var they are considering the IPO because they are already profitable from open stack. The IPO would be for more money to expand their already profitable operations faster.

In #Ubuntu desktop, its desktop environment settings, including system proxy settings, are stored in DConf database, which is a simple key/value store. If you modify any desktop properties using System Settings menu, the changes are persisted in the #DConf database backend. There are GUI-based or non-GUI-based ways to modify DConf database on Ubuntu. While System Settings or dconf-editor are graphical methods for accessing DConf database, gsettings or dconf are command-line tools that can modify the database.  #Linux
Question: I often need to change system proxy settings on Ubuntu desktop, but I do not want to go through a chain of GUI menus: "System Settings" -> "Network" -> "Network proxy", which is cumbersome. Is there a more convenient way to change desktop's proxy settings from the command line? In Ubuntu desktop, its desktop …Continue reading...

It's not an indictment on people who genuinely like Vim. But honestly, it feels more like a rite of passage than a tool at this point. When you consider that Linux itself has a lot of great tools built right into the Terminal, do you really need a terminal-based text editor for any other reason than to create some fast edits for some system files? Maybe when creating your own apps and utilities for a command line only server interface? That's really about it. It's like "Well, you're a real Linux user if you 1) Don't use Ubuntu and 2) If you use either Vim or Emacs. Really? I guess it's just the designer in me that demands more visually than what Vim has.

+Iron Bug I uses GNU/Linux daily and it handles my everyday workload. I would like a better selection of games and other paid applications but I can typically get everything I actually want to do done.

I started using it in 2006 when Microsoft Faketography and backdoor access was first divulged in Windows XP. All aspects of GNU/Linux have come a long way since then.

That’s right — the bits are heading out the door (and onto our mirror network)! Expect the official announcement around 10am US Eastern time Tuesday morning.  #Fedora #Linux

+Timothy Butterworth I just know that, in about 10 years of Fedora (4.0->Fedora 15-16) I had several site-crashing cases of it.

And in the same time on Ubuntu (for home use, these days: I'm retired) Not even one. No problem it might have is permanent.

I put off trying a Debian-based system for quite some time. I think I'd have saved a lot of sleepless nights, if I did.

But now days: SO DAMNED HAPPY that I'm no longer required to know the 90+ programs/procedures/languages for merely maintaining websites.

The business has gotten SO technical, it no longer fits in anyone's head. Not even Linus'!

One of the most crucial pieces of any #UNIX-like operating system is the init #dæmon process. In #Linux, this process is started by the kernel, and it's the first userspace process to spawn and the last one to die during shutdown.

That’s what we are. We, as in those 50 years of age or more who not only know how to use a computer, but who make them do our bidding. Those of us who can upgrade to the latest kernel, edit photos in #GIMP, use Audacity to edit sound files, or who think nothing of burning an ISO and creating a #USB device that has our entire desktop system ready to carry in our pockets.  #Linux
