best privacy-focused Linux distributions   

This article shows you the list of best privacy-focused Linux distributions. This article is intended for readers who are extremely concerned about their only privacy.

Privacy is a serious and much-debated issue. In this age of cyber espionage and electronic surveillance, privacy becomes a crucial subject.

While most of us Linux users care about our privacy to an extent, some people take it to an 'extreme level'. Such people are often termed 'privacy freaks' (not in a derogatory manner).

The good thing about Linux is that it has got a distribution for (almost) everyone's needs. Privacy is not an exception.

Remix OS: Is This the Droid You Were Looking For?   

Ever wanted to try Android on your PC but there weren't any really usable projects? Now you can. Remix OS is an Android based operating system that's designed to offer a full-fledged desktop PC-like experience. The developers have done a lot of work to implement many desktop-centric features such as multi-window multi-tasking. It offers a very familiar interface inspired by Windows, so the learning curve is not that steep. If you have used Android before, you will find yourself at home.

Remix OS is being developed by Jide Technologies, a company founded by three ex-Googlers, "with a mission to unlock the potential of Android in order to accelerate a new age of computing," reads the "about us" page.

Safe software download sites   

There was a time when we went to some good download sites and clicked on the Download button to download software. And what we got was software. But times have changed now, and things have gotten a bit messy. Now you have to be very careful before you click on any Download button or link, because you never know what you may end up with! You may go visit a download site to download, say our 340KB Ultimate Windows Tweaker, and end up with a bunch of other crapware you did not ask for!

Debian's long-term support experiment   

Debian Linux, which calls itself "The Universal Operating System," is a huge and popular Linux variant. Debian was one of the first Linux distributions, and it remains one of the largest, with over 43,000 software packages. Unlike many other leading Linux distros, Debian is not backed directly by a company, and it is managed democratically by the many volunteers who populate the Debian mailing list.

Despite its reputation as an all-free, counter-cultural collection for hackers, Debian is also quite stable and reliable, which makes it a viable option for many corporate networks. But after many years of Linux in the enterprise, admins have a pretty clear idea of what they want: a system that will operate for several years without requiring an upgrade. Rolling out a new operating system in the enterprise can take many months, and the process is quite complex and prone to complications

LibreOffice Goes Online with 5.3 Release   

The Document Foundation announced the release of LibreOffice version 5.3. The latest version is available for macOS, Windows, and Linux. This release has many new features, including an experimental ribbon-like interface reminiscent of Microsoft Word.

One of the biggest highlights of the new release is the source code for LibreOffice Online. Users can now install LibreOffice Online on their servers and use file sync and storage services like NextCloud to create an experience similar to Google Docs and Office 365.

Although the source code is available for download, the Document Foundation has no plans to offer LibreOffice Online as a service. Italo Vignoli, a co-founder of the Document Foundation, told us that the foundation doesn't have the resources to build a Google-like infrastructure to offer such as service. LibreOffice Online is intended for ISPs and private cloud vendors.

SUSE's answer to container-centric operating systems.

Cloud and containers is the next frontier for Linux companies. Responding to Container OS, Project Atomic, and Snappy Core, SUSE is working on MicroOS. The new operating system by SUSE is based on SUSE Enterprise Linux and focuses on delivering microservices.

In an exclusive interview with The New Stack, SUSE's newly appointed CTO, Dr. Thomas Di Giacomo, said that it will help those customers who are running legacy systems but want to migrate to modern technologies over time. "We want to make sure that companies that have legacy infrastructure and legacy applications that can move to modern technologies, where container as a service is offered through that OS itself."

One of the core components of MicroOS is transactional updates which use the snapshot capabilities of Btrfs. All updates will be installed automatically and a reboot
