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.

Evidence for recent star formation seen at Milky Way's center.

Stars could be forming in the inhospitable environment near Sagittarius A*, which is the supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way. That is the conclusion of an international team of astronomers that has discovered a possible signature of low-mass star formation just two light-years from the centre of our galaxy – a region that was previously thought to be too hostile for such activity. If confirmed, these observations identify a "laboratory" where astronomers can study star formation – and even possible planetary formation – near a supermassive black hole: http://buff.ly/1DzreDq

NASA’s Hubble Observations Suggest Underground Ocean on Jupiter’s Largest Moon

NASA’s +Hubble Space Telescope has the best evidence yet for an underground saltwater ocean on Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon. The subterranean ocean is thought to have more water than all the water on Earth’s surface.

Identifying liquid water is crucial in the search for habitable worlds beyond Earth and for the search of life as we know it.

“This discovery marks a significant milestone, highlighting what only Hubble can accomplish,” said John Grunsfeld, assistant administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters, Washington. “In its 25 years in orbit, Hubble has made many scientific discoveries in our own solar system. A deep ocean under the icy crust of Ganymede opens up further exciting possibilities for life beyond Earth.”

Ganymede is the largest moon in our solar system and the only moon with its own magnetic field. The magnetic field causes aurorae, which are ribbons of glowing, hot electrified gas, in regions circling the north and south poles of the moon. Because Ganymede is close to Jupiter, it is also embedded in Jupiter’s magnetic field. When Jupiter’s magnetic field changes, the aurorae on Ganymede also change, “rocking” back and forth.

By watching the rocking motion of the two aurorae, scientists were able to determine that a large amount of saltwater exists beneath Ganymede’s crust affecting its magnetic field.

Carissimi, in Giappone esattamente 3 anni fa è successo il disastro che tutti ben conosciamo. Questa mattina mia moglie mi ha  segnalato  la seguente iniziativa di Yahoo Japan:

本日、「3.11」というキーワードで検索された方
おひとりにつき10円が、Yahoo!検索から
復興支援のために寄付されます。

Morale, sopra c’è scritto che per ogni ricerca fatta su www.yahoo.co.jp che ha per oggetto semplicemente: “ 3.11” (senza le virgolette ovviamente), verranno devoluti  direttamente da Yahoo 10 yen al fine della ricostruzione.
Credo che andare su www.yahoo.co.jp, digitare 3.11 come ricerca, schiacciare il bottone a destra per la ricerca e magari anche condividere questo post il più possibile, non ti costi veramente nulla…. Grazie Dal Giappone!!

Dwarf planet Ceres continues to puzzle scientists as our Dawn spacecraft gets closer to being captured into orbit around the object. 

The latest images from Dawn, taken nearly 29,000 miles (46,000 kilometers) from Ceres, reveal that a bright spot that stands out in previous images lies close to yet another bright area. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1DbyQqc

What might life on other planets look like? Colorful life-form catalog will help discern if we're alone.

While looking for life on planets beyond our own solar system, a group of international scientists has created a colorful catalog containing reflection signatures of Earth life forms that might be found on planet surfaces throughout the cosmic hinterlands. The new database and research gives humans a better chance to learn if we are not alone. More: http://buff.ly/1HYBUdz

The strange mystery of the giant "Y" seen in the skies of Venus for more than 50 years may be solved at last: This colossal oddity may be caused by a new kind of wave in the solar system, scientists have found.

Hot springs on Saturn's moon Enceladus suggest ocean depths reaching at least near-boiling temperatures may lie deep beneath its icy crust, researchers say.

I had some hopes for the bright spot seen on the Hubble photos, but it looks like it was just a crater after all :-)

Introduction
Computer enthusiast, especially in Programming and Reverse Engineering.
I know the following programming languages:
  • C/C++ (my favourite!)
  • C#
  • D (www.dlang.org)
  • Java
  • PHP
  • Lua
  • Assembler (x86 and MIPS)
  • Delphi

I have started to make graphical software using .NET Framework (from version 1.1 to 4.0).
After three years using C# I wanted to try something more low level, so, I have started to learn Win32 API with D Programming Language (this language is fantastic! :) ).

With D and Win32 API I have developed for two years, a GUI Library called DGui (dgui.googlecode.com) inspired by .NET Windows Forms.

After the D experience I have learned C++ and Qt that I use currently.

From about three years I'm busy in the development of a cross platform, open source software that helps in Reverse Engineering called PREF (Portable Reverse Engineering Framework), written in C++ and Qt5.
This software is Lua scriptable, and it is capable to do file format analysis, disassembling, mapping and entropy visualization.
