With Windows 8 pushing a “touch-first” desktop interface—Microsoft’s words, not ours—and with Valve’s Steam on Linux beginning to bring much-needed games and popular attention to the oft-overlooked operating system, there’s never been a better time to take Linux out for a test drive.
Dipping your toes into the penguin-filled waters of the most popular open-source ecosystem is easy, and you don't have to commit to switching outright to Linux. You can install it alongside your current Windows system, or even try it without installing anything at all.
The Chrome Web browser on Windows is breakable, but its little brother, the Linux-based Chrome OS, proved to be essentially uncrackable at the CanSecWest conference in Vancouver, Canada,
In a separate security contest from the HP Zero Day Initiative's (ZDI) Pwn2Own competition, Microsoft's IE 10, Google's Chrome and Mozilla's Firefox Web browsers were all cracked. In addition, Java was also cracked multiple times.
In addition, Google is offering a total prize package of $3.14159 million in its own Pwnium 3 Chrome OS cracking contest.
As you are probably aware, DVDs are generally encrypted, and this encryption happens to use the Content Scramble System (CSS). Companies that produce DVD players license CSS support from the DVD Copy Control Association (DVD CCA), and as part of the licensing agreement there are certain copy-protection features that must be implemented, such as the region code system; these features are available out-of-the-box in Windows and Mac OS X, but not Linux.
The convergence of devices and software platforms is being driven by the shift towards cloud computing, which will ultimately become the engine room of all modern applications, according to Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth.
Speaking at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, following last week's launch of a developer preview of Canonical's mobile-friendly version of Ubuntu, Shuttleworth said that one of the key challenges in the mobile space is the fragmentation of the underlying platforms.
A few weeks ago, Canonical announced plans to enter the smartphone market with a new user interface for its Linux-based Ubuntu operating system. Today, the company announced a plan to bring that UI to the larger touchscreens found on tablets.
Canonical posted up a video on YouTube which showed off the various features of the tablet themed Ubuntu interface. One of them allows for multiple secure accounts to be used on just one tablet.
