Understanding and using htop to monitor system resources  View Printable Version 
Saturday, December 22 2012 @ 09:53 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsEvery so often there will be something that slows a system down. There are a few tools that can help to identify which process is the cause of this slow down. One such tool is htop. Htop is an interactive and real time process monitoring application for Linux which will show you your usage per cpu/core, as well as a meaningful text graph of your memory and swap usage.

KDE vs. Gnome system management  View Printable Version 
Monday, December 17 2012 @ 06:18 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsA few weeks back, we talked about KDE and Gnome in daily life, and how they fared from the applications perspective, when you pit programs developed for one environment against those created for the other. We learned a valuable lesson that technology and practicality do not necessarily go hand in hand, nor that you can easily draw a clear line between the two. Finally, we discovered the joy of freedom, in that you can mix software, regardless of whichever desktop you choose, and get the best of all worlds. Now, the big question is, does the same set of conclusions apply when you try to administer your box? Well, to answer that, we will check how easy and intuitive it is to manage Linux when you choose KDE or Gnome as your platform.

On top of this, the development environment is not just migrated to another server, it is being upgraded to ABF and Git.

Ubuntu Spyware: What to Do?  View Printable Version 
Friday, December 07 2012 @ 10:31 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsOne of the major advantages of free software is that the community protects users from malicious software. Now Ubuntu GNU/Linux has become a counterexample. What should we do?

Proprietary software is associated with malicious treatment of the user: surveillance code, digital handcuffs (DRM or Digital Restrictions Management) to restrict users, and back doors that can do nasty things under remote control. Programs that do any of these things are malware and should be treated as such.
