Could someone confirm whether or not this wireless adapter works with Linux? Someone in the Q&A claimed it doesn't, but given my current adapter by the same brand worked out of the box on almost every distro I've used so far, and this would be far from the first case of someone assuming something doesn't work on Linux and lying about whether or not it supports Linux if the claim wasn't true.

HBD #Linux! 
If you're a Linux fan, then you should know that this week is a very special one. On August 25, 1991 - 25 years ago - Linus Torvalds shot out a simple message to a Minix usergroup which stated that he was working on a Minix replacement. Within, he famously said that his creation wouldn't "be big and professional like GNU". Not even Linus

Linux celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary on August 25, but there is some confusion. "What is the correct date to celebrate? Is it really August twenty-fifth when you wrote the email [announcing the project in 1991] or is it the first release, or …?" asked Dirk Hohndel.

"The first actual release was not public," Torvalds said. While the announcement was made in August, version 0.01 of Linux was released in September. Torvalds wasn't happy with the release, but he uploaded it to an FTP server and emailed people who knew about it and were interested in it. Torvalds never made any public announcement of the actual release. He doesn't remember the date of the release because he lost all of those emails.
This week at LinuxCon NA, Linus Torvalds talked about the email he sent 25 years ago to announce Linux.

I doubt he thought that it would become the phenomenon we all know it as today?? I also doubt anyone could have guessed how it's mutations would then becomes things like Raspbian on a PI, or ESXI running the backend of VMware, RedHat becoming the corporate face of Linux, or the myriad of other embedded devices running some bits of the code... I can truly say "I" am surprised at all the places it's ended up in/at in the 20-odd years I've been running it. (And I'm no Linus Torvalds either!)

Oldie but a goodie. Granted today is Friday rather than a ThrowbackThursday, but why not. With so many MS related posts going on lately I figured this would fit right in with something more on topic of the community

About this community

This is a friendly community all about Linux (or GNU/Linux if you prefer) Please avoid posting other groups, links to your own sites (unless its relevant one off), or similar spammy type posts. Pays to avoid posting nudity, or men/women in skimpy outfits for any reason (including wallpapers) if you can help it, not everyone finds this acceptable. Anything else Linux related is fine . Try and avoid posting anti-windows,anti-anything. We do not need to put down other OS to make ours seem good - its already the best! *Moderation* Some people appear to be under the idea that moderators can somehow edit a post, or close comments on it. What we can actually do, is only remove the post from the group. This does not remove the post from google+, and any new comments on it will still notify you if you have commented on it. Google catches a vast majority of spam, particularly if you click the report button on it. When you click the report button on it, it immediately hides it from view of other users and flags it for us to either delete or otherwise. Thus , your powers to click report, are equivalent to ours to remove, either one will remove it. We just get the option to ban also. So if you see things that are not Linux related, offensive, or otherwise, click that report button so it hides it from other and flags it for us to remove. Feel free to tag us if you think its vitally important to ban somebody for some reason (not just because you disagree with their opinion). Feel free to suggest new categories!

Brian and Matt you are creating something special here whether you know it or not. Each episode is getting better and better and not from controversy or grown men behaving badly but from intelligent conversation with extremely important people in the Linux community. That's huge. Ironic or not. That's huge. Thanks.

+Chris Knutson learning to code doesn't teach you how to manage firewalls and troubleshoot email issues. This is what you do day to day, not sit and hammer out code (unless you are devops).

Hey, Linux community. I am working on a new disto (based on Ubuntu). It's got a sleek UI and some good per-installed apps (that should come pre-installed in all Linux distros) . It's for a Polar Computers Inc.'s new holographic computer (see it @ polartech.co) The computer is designed for everyone and is intuitive for people that are moving from Windows or Mac. Would it be help full to include GUI software for install DEB files. If you guys have any other suggestions, too.

I like minimal and smart design, everything placed where pointer distance is limited. Nothing to disturb the eye when working. I would encourage the user during setup to choose GUI with large thumbnails preview and a brief description. The same way to choose from popular apps afterwards. Finally a wallpaper to start.

Made with GIMP on Ubuntu Linux.
 
Cover for Issue #1 of Maine Street Magazine. Downtown Quincy, Illinois.

For the inaugural issue of Maine Street Magazine I wanted to create a sort of tribute to some of the most unique architecture in the district. On long walks downtown, I'd often imagine what different street corners would have looked like at their various high points. Occupied apartments, neon lights, street cars, bustling sidewalks, goods and services from the essential to the extravagant and fewer lazy architectural band-aids.

In order to create this image I utilized Google Maps, Street View. After arranging cut out buildings I painted over them digitally, based on a limited, but vibrant color scheme. For this I used a Wacom Tablet and GIMP, a free to use image editing program for Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

+Bruno Finger Thanks! It took a stupid amount of time to do. Good thing I don't mind tedious work. Aside from gaussian blur I don't really use filters. I try but the results are never as good as doing it by hand. GIMP is very powerful. But like Photoshop it has a lot of bells and whistles that I don't think most professionals would ever use.

Very cool news for people with an AMD GPU, #Vulkan is coming with an open source driver
A pretty good milestone has been achieved with the open source Vulkan driver for AMD that Dave Airlie has been working on with Bas Nieuwenhuizen. It can now run Dota 2.

Linux protects your money!

Somebody has stolen my credit card details and gone on an online spending spree, but my bank detected it straight away. How? Because they noticed I always do all my shopping on a Linux computer and the fraudster was using Windows 10.

And there was I thinking I already knew all the benefits of using Linux. There are hidden bonuses!

Ext2, no journaling overheads, but more prone to problems during power loss event
