I've said before I would rather Mint have the ability to detect if hardware has failed due to a kernel upgrade, and then provide the option of rolling back to an older kernel.
The Dirty Cow vulnerability from earlier this year would remain unpatched by default in Mint 18. For some users that could mean five years with an easily exploitable kernel.
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.
