As a preface, I'm not going to specify a single distribution that this applies to because I'm open to anything. Anyway, what's the general consensus on the laptops with the best Linux support out of the box? Currently I'm comparing the new Chromebook Pixel , the Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition (with nontouch display), and the Lenovo Thinkpad Carbon X1 . If it matters, each model I would be looking at the i5 8GB model (if applicable). As of right now, it looks like a no brainer to get the Dell XPS 13 Dev Edition, since it was made to be "linux friendly", but according to this thread Dell really blew it by keeping the Broadcom wifi card due to it's poor linux support. Any thoughts? This isn't only a recommendation for me, but feel free to post any current/last generation laptops that you have experience with and work well with Linux. submitted by Akito8 [link] [1 comment]

I was checking the numbers on statcounter.com, when I noticed that the Linux numbers were higher than average in South America. After some digging, I saw that the bulk of the use is coming from Venezuela, whose government adopted its own distro, Canaima, for use in the public sector. This isn't the only Latin America country to have high Linux numbers due to government intervention. Cuba is also higher than average, due to its government attempting to ween itself off Windows and its perceived security risks. Cuba's version is called Nova. Its pretty clear the motivations behind the high Linux adoption in Venezuela and Cuba, but does anyone feel that this might become a trend for other countries in the near future? And if not, what is holding them back from adopting Linux? submitted by luxtabula [link] [2 comments]

Hi there, I'm setting up my box so that I can SSH in from work as a very limited user. All I really want to do is use an editor to write JavaScript and invoke node to run it. Since I will be using an RSA key on the workstation, I must assume that this account will be accessed by any curious admin at work. In order to keep everything safe, it looks like I have two options: SSH in as a regular user with limited access, or SSH into a chroot environment. I'm currently weighing the pros and cons and would appreciate any input. SSH: +Easier to set up. Just severely restrict rwx permissions. -Is it safe enough? SSH into chroot: +Safer? -Harder to set up. Need to match group in ssh config, copy over lots of /dev/ and /bin/ dependencies. -Executing scripts can apparently break out easily, making this pointless? submitted by bobby177 [link] [1 comment]

Hello, Recently I've noticed that NetworkManager, default in my Xubuntu 15.04, gives me the following problems: * sometimes does not reconnect on resume from suspend * takes a long time to refresh available WiFi networks * does not show available networks on resume at all * has trouble maintaning connection when signal power is low (manual disconnect and reconnect solves this problem, so I think it is not related to signal poor quality) I figured there is another manager available, called Wicd (https://launchpad.net/wicd). Have any of you used it? I'm interested whether it is reasonably stable and has low memory footprint. I would test it myself, but I don't want to make a mess in my system since I won't be able to make a proper backup until the next week. Additionally, if you had similar problems with NetworkManager and found some workarounds/solutions - I'm all ears. submitted by mosqu1to [link] [comment]
