Datamation: Your choice of best Linux distro for work depends on issues like support and release schedule.
InternetNews.com: Likely the Eclipse Foundation, wasn't an option.
Security is always a hot-button issue, and one the folks at the OPNFV project take seriously.
Im gonna use my laptop HDD on my new PC but I still want to use my old laptop, so here is my question.
Since im gonna lose my hard drive on my laptop (and dont want to by a new one) can I use a USB pen permanently as a hard drive?
I know I can boot from USB pen but when I turn off the laptop it resets the settings, and I want a permanent solution.
Is it possible?submitted by /u/Noxgar
The legacy copyright industries keep insisting that it's "easy" to recognize when something is infringing and thus it's "easy" to stop copyright infringement. They're very, very wrong on both counts for a variety of reasons. We could go into the details for why, but it's easier to just let them show us themselves. Not too long ago we wrote about Warner Bros. issuing DMCA takedown notices on its own sites (and also Amazon and IMDB links for its movies), and now TorrentFreak alerts us to Paramount issuing a DMCA takedown on a torrent of Ubuntu, the popular version of Linux that many people use all the time.
It's kind of a weird request, and it's not at all clear why it's included in this takedown notice, which is for a variety of movies. In the section on the movie Transformers: Age of Extinction, Paramount (filed by notoriously clueless IP Echelon), it includes a link to a torrent of an Ubuntu iso.
While Google is normally pretty good at stopping daft take-down requests from the movie studios, it seems to have missed a doozy.
Paramount Pictures ordered a takedown of a link to a 32-bit alternate install image Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS because it apparently infringed on Paramount movie ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction‘.
The link pointed to a stock and dated old Ubuntu release which has nothing to do with the god awful flick.
