Open Source Software is making its way through European public institutions. No doubt about that.

But without comparable quantitative data readily available, it is difficult to have a clear visibility of the most successful policy nor to identify the area of improvement.

Students, researchers, if you work in studying the FOSS adoption in public administrations, don't hesitate to share some more data with us!

It's almost there:

BASH IT OUT:
Strengthen your Bash knowledge with
17 scripting challenges of varied difficulties
by +It's FOSS - Linux Blog & +Yes, I Know IT !

From the book description:
Do you want to improve your Bash skills? Be aware of the common or not-so-common pitfalls of interactive Bash usage? Or simply test your friends (and/or your employees!) with subtle brainteasers? Then, this book is for you!

The last step of the production suddenly became more time-consuming when we decided to publish the book on Amazon too (paperback and Kindle edition).

Shame on you +Amazon.com: you have a great publication platform for independent writers--unfortunately, your publication tools work ONLY on Windows and MacOS. And even the publication process can't be completed on Linux without installing the Adobe closed-source Flash Plug-in.

Anyway, we've overcome those difficulties, and the book is currently being reviewed.
It should be available next week, just in time for those who like to read on the beach!

Stay tuned to hear more about that soon!

L'article original est en anglais, mais ça vaut vraiement le coup surtout si votre client veut une newsletter, ou simplement quand votre site doit envoyer des mails de confirmation.

L'article parle de signature, mais les techniaues exposées peuvent très bien être appliquées à tout email au format HTML.
We're in 2017 and support for standard HTML and CSS features are still surprisingly sparse in some major email clients (Yes, I look at you, Gmail!)

Obviously, FOSS clients like Thunderbird have way more robust support for standard technologies than proprietary ones. Unfortunately, you cannot (yet) hope for every recipient to use a compliant HTML email client.

As I'm developing my online education business, I discovered simply adding a nice signature at the bottom of an email can be surprisingly hard, if you want to obtain something consistent and readable across most if not all the clients. Hopefully, that wonderful article by digitechbranding.com helped me a lot.

Maybe you want to run a Windows software on Linux? Or optimize your costs by running several virtual servers on the same hardware? In those cases, like in many other ones, virtualization is the technology to leverage.

But there are so many different virtualization technologies readily available today. Which one is the best for YOUR needs?

"Glob patterns are simple. Anyone knows how to use them".

No, it's wrong.

Maybe you are new to the Unix-like world and you don't know what are glob patterns. Or maybe you are a more experienced user. But even in that case, are you sure you know all the subtleties behind glob patterns?

Whatever is your background, watch this video: I could bet 90% of you will learn something new!

"I want to learn Linux. Is Kali right for me?"

If you follow Linux-related groups on social networks, you've already seen that question. And it usually doesn't take long for such message to attract a long list of useless comments.

So, tired of the sterile controversies, I decided to forge my own opinion:

⏯ Watch the video directly on https://youtu.be/RURSL-pgAd0
📖 Read the companion article on ItsFOSS Linux Blog: https://itsfoss.com/know-cpu-linux-corefreq/

Do you know the exact speed of your CPU? Or how the various process on your computer are bound to different cores?

Even if hardware performances are not your passion, don't miss that video as I take that occasion to show you how to download and compile a software from the "sources". You know, just like in "Open Source"...

Every day, thousands of publications about Linux are released on the web. But what are they talking about? What are the Linux hottest topics today?
https://yesik.it/LIN100

Using a custom Google search I've gathered some statistics about "Linux publications" for the first 100 days of 2017. And I've summarized the results in that infographic. Some results were expected. Other were more surprising...

And you? What result do you find the most noticeable?
