According to What's New in MySQL 5.6, MySQL 5.6 will bring some performance improvements over MySQL 5.5.

The Perfect Desktop - Kubuntu 12.10
This tutorial shows how you can set up a Kubuntu 12.10 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge. Kubuntu uses the KDE desktop environment.

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On OpenSUSE 12.2
This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on OpenSUSE 12.2. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this. I will outline two solutions: the first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server that has CGI support, while the second solution uses a CGI wrapper to serve CGI scripts.
Remote MySQL Performance and Query Monitoring
There may be the situation that you have to monitor a MySQL server remotely. There are some linux tools to do performance and query monitoring locally, and these tools can also used to monitor remotely - but only unencrypted ! Also often MySQL is only listening on the loopback interface, so it is even not reachable remotely over the net (which is very good seen from the security viewpoint). But there is an easy solution in the Linux world.
Virtualization With KVM On Ubuntu 12.10
This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on an Ubuntu 12.10 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM). KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and makes use of hardware virtualization, i.e., you need a CPU that supports hardware virtualization, e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V.
Blocking Facebook Web Trackers At The Firewall For Extra Privacy
If you've spent any time examining the network traffic to and from your web browser, you will notice the prolific number of trackers embedded in the pages. There are some add-ons to the web browsers that aid in privacy, but it is simple enough to block the rogue sites at the firewall.
Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Ubuntu 12.10
Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on an Ubuntu 12.10 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support. PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. I use PHP-FPM in this tutorial instead of Lighttpd's spawn-fcgi.
Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Ubuntu 12.10
SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on Ubuntu 12.10.
