The weird and the wacky world of Linux distros!
From the most consumer focused distros like Ubuntu, Fedora, Mint or elementary OS to the more obscure, minimal and enterprise focused ones such as Slackware, Arch Linux or RHEL, I thought I've seen them all. Couldn't have been any further from the truth. Linux eco-system is very diverse.

Meet KDE's Shashlik Project!
I know what you might be thinking. Yes, Android is Linux. But for the lack of a better word, we will define the conventional Linux desktops like Ubuntu as Linux here. Native Android apps doesn't run on Linux desktops. And Android platform is buzzling with great apps and games.

Tips and tricks to make your Ubuntu even better.
Ubuntu 15.04 codenamed "Vivid Vervet" is the 22nd major Ubuntu release. Even though not as minor an iteration like Ubuntu 14.10, Vivid Vervet still doesn't bring any sweeping changes to the platform. This is to be expected since Unity 8 and Mir display server is still some time away.

And the fastest supercomputer runs Ubuntu Kylin, which is now an official Ubuntu flavour.
No surprises there. Why would any supercomputer vendors ever use anything other than an open code is beyond me. The latest Top500 list of Supercomputers is out and Linux absolutely dominates the scene while Ubuntu is the flavour that powers the world's fastest Supercomputer.

Flash is slowly but surely fading way.
Have you tried watching YouTube in Firefox lately? Because you can't anymore, at least by default. Firefox disabled Adobe Flash plugin for its oft criticized security holes which are only getting worse by day. Now, System76 joins the bandwagon. Adobe Flash is slowly but surely fading away.

How about this Firefox extension lets you watch Flash videos using your local media players like MPV?
Adobe Flash is in the news again. You might have noticed it already if you're using Firefox. The security holes that comes with Flash just can't be ignored anymore and Mozilla has decided to take action and has stopped loading Flash by default in its marquee product. But that's another news.
