Many Linux distros still spawn 6 login terminals which can be accessed with Ctrl+Alt+F1 - Ctrl+Alt+F6. In the day of graphical desktop, is there really a need for these? They seem like a legacy thing that hangs in the background year after year.
I suspect most people drop there just because X.org is unresponsive or otherwise messed up. Therefore, to me it would make sense to only have some kind of local root emergency console that could be accessed with Ctrl+Alt+F1, and that would be it. Put a little Tux logo with a spanner in his hand there. Nice and professional. If someone still needed those old login consoles, he could explicitly enable them.

Friday afternoon after we published our report, Richard Stallman, founder and president of FSF, posted a brief, unofficial statement in an email to the thread around Rowe’s email. “The dismissal of the staff person was not because of her gender,” he said. “Her gender now is the same as it was when we hired her. It was not an issue then, and it is not an issue now.”
For a while now, you’ve been able to get Builder from the gnome-apps-nightly Flatpak repository. Until now, it had a few things that made it difficult to use. We care a whole lot about making our tooling available via Flatpak because it is going to allow us to get new code into users hands quicker, safer, and more stable.
So over the last couple of weeks I’ve dug in and really started polishing things up. A few patches in Flatpak, a few patches in Builder, and a few patches in Sysprof start getting us towards something refreshing.
Next Monday I am speaking at the Libre Application Summit GNOME in Portland about how we’re managing and delivering the applications to our Endless OS’s users. I am also very curious to check out the city of Portland as everybody tells me good things about it.
FOSSforce: Both Richard Stallman and John Sullivan have issued statements concerning the allegations made against the FSF by Libreboot's lead developer.
Wine 1.9.19 appears to be a minor update that only implements an initial version of a udev bus driver for HID
My team has to build this application for a client, and I am thinking of using DigitalOcean to host it. Event though DigitalOcean offers what they call 'one-click apps' (they have one for our basic stack), I think we will have to customize the server for our needs. The two main options are to use Docker containerization (i.e. use Swarm or Compose to create multiple services) or use any provision tool (probably Chef).
I need to know which is simpler to manage, deploy, and then scale (if there is an upscaling need).submitted by /u/aziflaj
