I would like to introduce my new application SystemdGenie. Some of you may be familiar with systemd-kcm, a KCM module I wrote for managing systemd. SystemdGenie is basically systemd-kcm transformed into a proper application.
Nmap doesn't have the standard 'contributing to nmap' page that most open souce programs have on their websites. I am convinced that is one of the major reasons people keep asking "How to Contribute?" on the mailing list.
Managing disk space has always been a significant task for sysadmins. Running out of disk space used to be the start of a long and complex series of tasks to increase the space available to a disk partition. It also required taking the system off-line. This usually involved installing a new hard drive, booting to recovery or single-user mode, creating a partition and a filesystem on the new hard drive, using temporary mount points to move the data from the too-small filesystem to the new, larger one, changing the content of the /etc/fstab file to reflect the correct device name for the new partition, and rebooting to remount the new filesystem on the correct mount point.
It would seem like all the big proprietary operating system vendors are working on knitting their desktop and mobile platforms tighter together. KDE Connect steps in to fill this gap between Linux and Android by acting as a bridge between the two.
When I first started on my journey with Linux, back in the late 1990s, there was one inevitability: the terminal. You couldn't escape it. The command line was a part of your daily interaction with the open source platform and that was that. Today's Linux is a much different beast. New and seasoned users alike can work with the platform and never touch the command line or terminal.
1976 was a good year for text editors. At MIT, Richard Stallman and Guy Steele wrote the virst version of Emacs. And over at Berkeley, Bill Joy wrote vi (though it wouldn't be called that for a few years yet).
