Our latest benchmarking of Ubuntu 14.04 is looking at the 2D X11 and 3D OpenGL performance of six different desktop environments when benchmarked on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The tested desktops included Unity, Xfce, KDE, LXDE, GNOME Shell, and Openbox.
The Web @ 25 "We should work toward a universal linked information system, in which generality and portability are more important than fancy graphics techniques and complex extra facilities."
There was a time, back before smartphones and tablets, when most of us used, at most, only three operating systems. Indeed, for the average computer user there was only one operating system that mattered and that was Windows, which held a 95% market share. Even those of us who used Linux or Apple at home usually had to use a Windows computer at work–which remains true today.
New features like HiDPI and local menus are still being tuned within the Unity 7 desktop environment ahead of next month's debut of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Huawei is planning an assault on the American smartphone market with a dual-boot smartphone running both Google's Android operating system and Redmond's Windows Phone.
With my upgrade to a new Intel Haswell ultrabook from ASUS, I am no longer relying upon an Apple Retina MacBook Pro and thus no OS X... I also switched from Unity to Xfce with my Linux environment. However, so far it hasn't been a totally positive experience.

LinuxSecurity.com: When I decided to post an exploit a day from the TAO implant catalog, my goal was to highlight the myriad of capabilities of the NSA's Tailored Access Operations group, basically, its black bag teams. The catalog was published by Der Spiegel along with a pair of articles on the NSA's CNE -- that's Computer Network Exploitation -- operations, and it was just too much to digest.

If you want to find out where a given IP address is physically located on earth, there are quite a few online GeoIP lookup services you can try (e.g. geoiptool.com). These online services are mostly powered by freely available GeoIP databases such as those from MaxMind. Besides using such web-based services, there are different ways to query the GeoIP databases, notably via the Linux command line. In this tutorial, I am going to describe how to geolocate an IP address from the command line in Linux.
If you're at all interested in open source and video games, you've no doubt noticed that the two don't meet nearly as often as we'd like. But we saw Steam finally come to Linux last year. We have Ouya. We have more and more great Linux games appearing, and Linux gamers always give the Humble Bundles more support than Windows or Mac users. Thus it's also time to introduce open source and free culture to the International Game Developers Association (IGDA). Towards that goal, I'll be helping launch the Open Source and Free Culture SIG at the Game Developers Conference next week in San Francisco.
