Google continues to surprise us with new products that not only simply work, but also make computing more affordable for users.

The company has announced a new breed of device called Chromebit. It’s an HDMI stick, similar to Chromecast, that comes with a full-fledged Chrome OS operating system.

I see Chromebit as an excellent thin client in an enterprise set-up where all core apps live and run on enterprise servers.
Will this sub-$100 device repeat the success of Chromecast?

+Brandon Tiller VGA port itself is bigger than the device. Get a VGA/HDMI adapter.

The use of open source and open standards is essential for a secure Internet, the Hungarian government says in a statement following a workshop with IT researchers and ICT service providers. This type of software will also reduce the cost of ICT and contribute to the country’s economy, says Tamas Deutsch.

 Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft Corporate VP Devices and Studios Marketing said during a press event, “It can run Microsoft Windows as well as Google’s Android, and it can also handle any Linux based distro without a hiccup. It’s also “a premium product at a premium price,”.

One deal-breaker for me had been Google’s reluctance to offer native support for standard protocols like Samba, sFTP or WebDAV in their Chrome OS. This inability of Chrome OS keeps my Chromebooks locked out of the file server I have set-up at home.

Arch Linux on a server? Why would you use a rolling release distro which needs to be updated frequently to power your server? It’s a tricky question and there is no easy answer. I use Arch Linux on my desktop, which is my production machine. That’s the system where all these stories are created. But when it comes to a live, production server I would not go beyond CentOS, RHEL, Debian, Ubuntu LTS or SUSE Linux. I run Ubuntu and Debian on my server.

Computer Science students are not learning the skills they need for working in the modern free and open source-friendly of software development, says Scott Wilson, service manager at OSS Watch, a service for higher and further education institutions in the UK. “Institutions need to rethink how they teach computing, to ensure students can practice the craft of software development, such as the use of source control, issue tracking and test-driven development, rather than just programming languages.”

I think they should teach git + github as well. Git is one of the tools you don't really understand until you actually do any open source collaboration.

Google just announced a slew of Chrome OS powered devices, including a Flip Chromebook from ASUS and a Chromebit device which is the whole Chrome OS on a stick.

Buried under these announcements where the arrival of Google Drive for Linux. For some reason Google doesn’t have Linux on their priority list anymore this Drive for Linux didn’t even get their own press release.

If it's a joke; it's tasteless, if not, well done Mountain View fellas, "public availability is expected by the mid of 2019" I salute y'all in standing ovation.

One shell to rule them all, one shell to find them, one shell to bring them all and in the same distro bind them.

Command line is one of the many strengths of Linux based systems. Why is it a strength? There is no one answer; there are many answers. I agree that the graphical user interface (GUI) makes it easier for a user to interact with their system and that's what new users may need to get started with Linux; that's what I needed when I was starting off with Linux back in 2005. But as I matured as a user I found CLI (command line interface) was more efficient than fiddling with the buttons of a tool.
Once you learn it, the CLI (command line interface) is more efficient than the GUI on Linux.

I wrote a detailed mini-book, a tutorial, to install Arch Linux on your system. In that tutorial, I focused on KDE. But Arch is desktop environment (DE) agnostic. It’s a foundation on which you can erect the empire of any DE you want. This article is an extension of that tutorial, a continuation where we talk about Gnome. So, once you reached the step where you are about to install KDE continue on this page.

While it's possible to install 'KDE' software and Plasma desktop on most Linux based distributions, I have picked the distros which offer Plasma as their default desktop environment. These 'KDE-based' distros offer a better Plasma experience compared to those where you can 'also' install KDE.
Plasma is one of the most advanced desktop environments and these distros offer a great ‘out-of-the-box’ Plasma experience.

Story
Tagline
A Linux & Open Source web magazine
Introduction

Veda (वेद ) is a Sanskrit word which means ‘Knowledge’. “Linux” Veda is a web-magazine to share and spread knowledge about Linux and Open Source technologies.

We cover tutorials, interviews, in-depth analysis, daily news and reviews. While the focus is on Linux and Open Source technologies we do have an ‘off-topic’ section under which we cover stories of importance, even if they are not directly related to Linux or Open Source.

Our core focus is success stories, where we publishes articles on Linux or Open Source technologies being deployed in different environments and set-ups.
