In this article, we explore the conditions on helping users migrate to Linux, motivations for migration as well as the reasons for resistance to migration. Finally, I provide some strategies to assist migration successfully with happy end-users. If you are a Linux administrator or a business owner who wants to cut cost by migrating to Linux, you will find this article useful.
Bitcoin, Ethereum, ETC, Ripple, Litecoin and Dash, which one should you invest in and why? The truth is there is no right answer as the answer will change depending on when these commodities become overvalued/appreciated.

Anytime is a good time to start investing but there are a few basic fundamentals to read up on before entering the cryptomarket.
TensorFlow is developed by Google and released as an open source software library for machine learning, specifically to training neural networks to to detect and decipher patterns and correlations. I would not say that the software would be analogous to human reasoning, but the behavior is more akin to teaching a dog to follow commands. However, the more data you have, the smarter your software is, making your deep neural network smarter than a dog, slightly dumber than a human, but probably more consistent than both. Today, the tutorial will be based on reading chest radiographs.
The chest radiograph is easy to learn but hard to master. The basics of radiology is embedded within the chest radiograph itself and tests the reader on evaluating the soft tissues, bones, air and sometimes fluid.
Wayland is a lightweight display server protocol that is already severely overdue to replace XORG. There has always been a master plan to include Wayland into Ubuntu.
What does this mean? It means Linux/Ubuntu will now be easier to develop, use less resources and will probably get better compatibility in the future. Perhaps April 2018 will be The Year of the Linux Desktop. It can also mean nothing, depending on how well people adopt it.
When is it released?
Wayland will first be released on Ubuntu on the 17.10 version. There will be need to iron out some bugs, but this will also be the best time to demonstrate the its benefits. Say hi to full resolution splash screens.
Why X isn’t good enough?
I was born in 1987. The X version became 11 and that was when X11-protocol was also born. A lot have changed over the past 30 years but…
Problems with Wayland
Any project will definitely have a lot of issues, but Wayland has been out for extended amount of time with many hiccups. It also has issues with propriety software like NVIDIA and AMD. FGLRX and the NVIDIA propriety software do not have KMS support and hence do not work well with Wayland. What is the point of a more responsive system when you can’t play games?
In a way, Wayland does not attempt to make life easier for end-users. Users are not interested in the technology, they are interested in getting their job done.
“If X works good enough, why do you need Wayland?” – said no linux elitist ever.
It has been slightly over three months since our last post. We are pleased to announce that we have build and tested extensively our Steam Box prototype. Technical specs are listed at the bottom of the page.
1. Kodi as a media centre, watching videos though Genesys (TV show, movies and DVD)
2. Youtube app on Kodi
3. Launching chrome thru Kodi and streaming videos with Flash and HTML 5
4. Launching Steam thru Kodi and gaming with controller-compatible games. Keys were easy to map and you can download other players’ customised mappings
5. Skype and Webcam functionality. Teamspeak and Mumble
6. Torrent downloading, magnet links. Control through Kodi
7. Browsing facebook and wasting time
Since I am not providing test on emulation due to legal reasons, I will post a video on its functionality should you wish to include it. This youtube video was not created by us but the theme and functionality served as a model for us to base our design on.
Debian is founded in 1993 and named after his previous girlfriend (Debra) and himself, Deb + Ian. They had subsequently married and divorced at 2008. Linux had just been released two years prior to Debian and had little commitment or significance to free software. In fact, there was little sense of direction and Linux is about small businesses promoting their self-needs.
In fact GNU paid little attention to Linux at that time. However, things changed when Debian came along. Debian pioneered the package-based approach to Linux. This was important as a set of standards and guidelines were now available for developers to create their own packages which would fit with Debian. Murdock was subsequently approaced by the FSF and was paid to work on Debian.
Our desktop OS is always meant to be running the latest stable software where possible, but this has to take account experimental, unstable and sometimes old software which have been discontinued but no competitors to follow (yet).
Most people talk about LXDE and XFCE when deciding between which lightweight desktop environment to use with some form of customisable GUI out of the box. Even if you have a powerful computer, using a lightweight desktop will benefit you in some way, for example using Compiz on LXDE will produce beautiful effects with better optimisation of resources.
The new kid on the block is LXQT and version 0.9 has been released for over a year. LXQT is essentially the future form of LXDE, but unlike pokemon, the benefits of evolution is not immediately apparent; the new software is always unstable at first and gradually gets more popular as it becomes more usable and more practical to switch. This post gives general background information about the desktop describes the, experience after tinkering and potential bugs experienced with the desktop.
Release: 10 March 2015
Genre: Simulator, City-building
Developer: Colossal Order, published byParadox Interactive
Relations: Sim City 4
Runs on: Windows, Mac, Linux
Cities: Skylines has described itself to be a modern take of the classic city simulation game and we know what game is worth mentioning: the old game release more than 10 years ago but kept very alive by mods and community improvements, Sim City 4. Cities: Skylines not only created a modern version of the game, it blew anything Maxis or EA has ever created out of the water. It is no wonder why the reviews are overwhelmingly positive on Steam.
