You wanted the Start menu back in Windows 8.1. Microsoft listened ... and didn't give it to you. Now Lenovo says that if a Start Menu is what it will take to get you to start buying Windows 8 PCs, then by gum, a Start Menu you shall have.
There are literally hundreds of Linux desktop distributions. Here's how to find one that's right for you.
Debian GNU/Linux now celebrates 20 years. This Linux distribution traveled a long way and no shortcuts were taken to produce this extremely stable and robust operating system. The proof of the previous statement is the amount of spin-offs produced based on Debian GNU/Linux, which is currently estimated to flow over 140 mark. This number also includes the well known Ubuntu Linux which is still closely connected to the enormous Debian package repository.
The Indiegogo campaign was overly ambitious and missed its target by more than US$19 million. However, it also set the record for the most money raised from a crowd-funding campaign.

The C4 Engine is a comprehensive suite of robustly implemented game programming tools for the Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, PS4, and PS3 platforms.
LXLE Paradigm goes final with 12.04.3 update. 'Paradigm' is a tentative attempt to create four different desktop paradigms for users to choose from once they start up their aging computers when using LXLE. LXLE paradigm is not an attempt to completely mimic other desktops features and functions but to provide a desktop scheme that is familiar to all different types of computer users whether you are comfortable with Linux, OS X or Windows operating system. Currently the paradigms available at start-up are, GNOME 2 (G2), Windows (XP), OS X (OSX) and Ubuntu's Unity. Each desktop can be entered and/or used at any time, and you can switch back and forth at will.
This tutorial shows how you can install and run ProcessWire on a Debian Wheezy or Ubuntu 13.04 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.
According to leaked internal documents from the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) that Die Zeit obtained, IT experts figured out that Windows 8, the touch-screen enabled, super-duper, but sales-challenged Microsoft operating system is outright dangerous for data security. It allows Microsoft to control the computer remotely through a built-in backdoor. Keys to that backdoor are likely accessible to the NSA – and in an unintended ironic twist, perhaps even to the Chinese.
Last week I had a chance to visit Chattanooga for several days and received an up close look at the maker and entrepreneurial culture of the city. Chattanooga is home to a municipal gigabit fiber installation, which reaches every home and business in a 600 square mile area. The city is positioning itself as a hub of digital innovation, and from where I sit they're doing quite a good job of that. Some of the smartest minds from other parts of the country are moving to Chattanooga because of the quality of life combined with structural community support for innovators.
There are a fair number of IT pros out there making the argument that their data is safer inside the cozy confines of their own data centers than it is in the cloud, but I argue that you are subject to the same pitfalls whether you're in the cloud or behind your own firewall.
[b]Employee turnover seems to be a big problem,[/b] at least at the Austin location(s). A good friend who works the swing shift for call center server support told me bluntly:"It's like the D-Day landing at Normandy. People are dropping all around me, but I keep pushing on."
The growing shortage of qualified programmers, computer scientists and software engineers is gathering significant attention in the media and popular press. Recent efforts from the non-profit organization Code.org have helped shine light on the problem—software is the defining industry of the 21st Century and the pool of skilled talent is slim. Conversely, for students who pursue software development the opportunity for employment is colossal: By the year 2020, it is estimated that there will be one million more programming jobs than available students.
