As Greg Kroah-hartman, the leading Linux kernel developer, put it, “If your operating system does not change, it is dead. It's that simple. If your device does not change based on the world it interacts with, it is dead. It's that simple.”
Windows 10 may adopt a rolling release model and that’s a good thing.

I don't like to live on the "bleeding edge". I like regular OS changes but at my choosing when to update them.

I wonder why open source companies including SUSE, Fedora and Canonical are not using any open source forum platform?

Also it looks Canonical sysadmins were the only one not keeping their software updated as there were no reports of Fedora or SUSE forums getting 'hacked'.

Despite its claims of being an open source Linux company, Canonical is running its forums on proprietary vBulletin software. But Canonical is not alone, Fedora and SUSE also use vBulletin for their forums.

Ubuntu forums were hacked because admins at Canonical didn’t update the forum software. Security expert Graham Cluley wrote on his blog, “What a goof. If you don’t patch the software running on your website, don’t be surprised if a hacker compromises your system and makes off with your customer’s data.”
Canonical reported on July 14 that Ubuntu forums were breached. Attackers were able to steal usernames, email addresses, and IP addresses of more t...

+Chris Ahlstrom​ It's pointless to ask the question if you're not going to take the time to look into it yourself. Unless you expect Lennart to do it for you...

I had a great interview with the CEO of +SETI Institute today. A good story with open source angle coming soon.

I love the Dell XPS 13 (2016) that Dell gave me on loan. But installing Arch Linux with UEFI enabled can be challenging for new users — especially since ‘grub’ doesn’t work on this system with Arch Linux. I talked to a lot of people in the Arch community and resorted to using systemd-boot for successful install.

Here's how I got Arch Linux running on the Dell XPS 13 laptop.

+altermetax grub in the repos doesnt seem to have nvme support.
grub-git in the aur does, and many distros backport it.

The Microsoft Office alternative OpenOffice has been around for decades as an open source project by Sun Microsystems. In 2010, LibreOffice was forked from OpenOffice under the governance of The Document Foundation. Collabora products are based on the same LibreOffice.

Despite being around for a very long time, LibreOffice hasn't made a serious dent in Microsoft’s market share. So how does Collabora plan to do what LibreOffice hasn't yet been able to do?

+Martin Ravensholt Spreadsheets are still fairly important, and LibreOffice's inability to fully replace Excel is the only reason i have to keep an MS Office license. Libre mangles all but the simplest formatting so consistently that I don't bother with it for any workbook that needs to be shared with others.

I was interviewed by +Swapnil Bhartiya for CIO.com about building and incentivizing a global community of hackers at HackerOne to have the same kind of impact on security that open source has had on software development - http://www.cio.com/article/3099006/security/how-hackers-are-making-products-safer.html
Jono Bacon talks about HackerOne, a platform that help companies secure their software by opening it up to hackers.

Dear 'leader' of an 'Open Source' project, when a journalist writes about your project and get back to you with feedback, don't tell him to go file bug report. And don't tell him that you are not his personal bug tracker. Thank him that there are still hardworking journos who invest time in getting the story right instead of lifting the from the web and write 'what comes to their min'. Open source projects need to learn how to interact with journalists.

I am very disappointed with one project that I really loved.

I am writing this because I am so impressed that Dell followed up with me about grub issue on their laptop. They approach me on their own, after reading it my story. They in fact asked if I can provide more debug info instead of telling me to go file a bug.
