GNU/Linux: the desktop that never was  View Printable Version 
Friday, May 22 2015 @ 08:32 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsAbout 6 years ago, I wrote an article about why I felt that installing software in GNU/Linux was broken. It pains me to say that the situation is, sadly, exactly the same:GNU/Linux never made it to personal computers, really, and at this point it looks like it never will.

9 reasons to use KDE  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 18 2015 @ 11:56 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEI really like the command line interface (CLI) in Linux. It bestows great power upon its users, and I spend a good deal of time availing myself of those powers. And yet without the GUI desktop I would still be limited. It is through the combination of the GUI and the command line that I find the power of Linux to be more fully realized

As with many things in Linux, there are several choices available for desktops. A short list includes Xfce, MATE, Cinnamon, LXDE, GNOME, KDE, and for the kids, Sugar. I have tried all of these at various times over the years, and I always install all of them on my main workstation so that I can try out the latest versions of each. But despite the fact that all of these desktops have many good features, I always return to KDE.

Writing an application that supports DNSSEC in RHEL and Fedora  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, April 14 2015 @ 06:22 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoDNS is a distributed database that is capable of storing different types of data, not only IP addresses, in which the domain owner can publish various domain specific data. Yet, plain DNS does not offer any type of security measures. This means that DNS data in the response can be spoofed by anybody at any time.

Ten tips for wonderful bash productivity  View Printable Version 
Friday, February 06 2015 @ 12:32 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoI am always tweaking and tricking my bash environment. I hit the same issues again and again and I always have to look up the solution, time after time. This happens until I get annoyed enough to sit down - okay, generally I am already sitting down but you get the point - and create a custom function, put it in my .bashrc and deploy it to any machine I log on to.

The premise behind that article was to look at the top 10 distributions of 2013, as listed on Distrowatch, in order to define their suitability for the average computer user.

There was a little bit of confusion with that article because in the comments some people thought it was just a list of my favourite distributions:
